Overall this is a really fun kit. My son loves all the hands on activities but I wish there were other options for some of the main curriculums. We are not a fan of the literature set. I wish there were other options that were far less textbooky. We were also not a huge fan of the spelling either. We have found Spelling Power to be much more effective and a lot less busy work. The spelling has a ton of just copywork which for some kids is not fun at all. I *think* you can get All About Spelling but we have done almost all of them already. The history graphic novels have been wonderful. I had no idea you could get history or science ones and we have been adding more to our book collection. We absolutely love Math U See so love that it is in this kit. We also really love First Language Lessons. I am sad its our last year using it and am curious to see what they put in its place for next year. Overall its a great kit for someone starting out and I am glad we tried it. There are a few things such as literature and spelling that we have passed along to other families as it doesn't fit with our learning style. I do wish they had a couple more options when choosing to make a custom curriculum (which we did not use this time we bought the package as is).
This kit is the perfect combination of every important thing that a 4th grader needs to know - and makes a student love learning in the process! My fourth grader has gone from hating school to wanting to do it with her extra free time because she feels smart and empowered to learn thanks to so many items in this kit. STEM activities benefit her hands-on learning tendencies, but there is also a traditional math and reading program included that fulfills all our other needs so she can be the best student possible. Highly recommend!
Review from my soon to be 4th grader, "I can't wait to start the new school work! Timberdoodle should just be called Fun School not homeschool."
I absolutely LOVE the ability to customize the curriculum kits to fit our family's needs. Thank you, Timberdoodle!!!
We love all the hands-on activities!
