Love having the ability to customize a curriculum kit! I was able to remove a few items that we happened to already own (yay, cost savings). I also made a substitution on Spelling U See in order to get material I felt was better suited to my son’s skill level. It’s wonderful to be able to make this type of adjustment. Customizing education to his best level is a main reason for homeschooling. Thanks Timberdoodle for making his “personalized” curriculum just right!
I purchased the complete 3rd grade curriculum kit since this is my first year homeschooling my son. I have found this kit to be very helpful in providing me tools and games to help my son learn. I love all the teaching guidance this kit provides for me. I am learning how to adapt my kit to my son's learning style. We've had a few emotional issues because I was trying to teach every subject, every day. You don't have to do that with this kit...I just started focusing on less subjects per day and spending more time exploring that subject. This style has helped my son feel less rushed and allows him to really learn the subject. I appreciate the flexibility this kit provides!
My only complaint is that I couldn't choose different art supplies or different Science books to change out. My son.refuses to do Zentagle art, so that book isnt being used. Also the Science book is too high level.and complex for an 8 yr old.
We ordered custom kits for our 1st and 3rd grader. This is our first year homeschooling and we were super overwhelmed. Timberdoodle took the guess work out of picking the best curriculum. We have loved this kit! Our favorites are Gravitrax, Mosdos, First Language Lessons, Circuit Maze, and Critical and Creative. We only planned to homeschool this year, but we are having so much fun we may just continue next year.
We were overwhelmed with making a choice about homeschooling curriculum for our first year teaching our daughter, then a friend recommended Timberdoodle and we were so happy to find it. The items included are very interesting and it’s got a nice curated feeling with everything not being from the same company, so it’s not boring. Our daughter really enjoys most of the subjects and the different approaches to learning. It’s also generally way easier to teach from each subject than I had anticipated.
Overall, we like everything we received, but there were two subjects that seemed too difficult for the grade level. The science and history seems very complete, but it was just too much for a third grader, so we’re saving those for a later time and have found substitutes for this year. Also, the online scheduler is a great resource! It was super helpful for getting us going and deciding how much to do each day and how to pace our week.
My 3rd grader is thriving! She loves the Mosdos reading, the cursive, the hands-on bite-sized Math from Math-U-See, but also the challenges from Critical and Creative. We are first year home schoolers, but this has been an amazing fit. Very thoughtful and thorough kit! I love the mix of core subjects, with hands-on learning, varied methods, and STEM.
