Do you need a custom First-Grade Curriculum?
This year you will love helping your child become a competent reader, budding mathematician, and a thinking, eager learner. He will study science through the days of creation, learn about ancient times, and build his first robot. With creative art, hands-on logic, and a construction program that develops visual perception and creative thinking, this year will be a year packed with happy memories for both of you!

We asked parents who used our First-Grade Kit how long their student spent on "school," and they estimated that they spent 1-4 hours a day on their kit. You’ll be able to plan yours to work best for you with your access to the online Timberdoodle Scheduler, included with your kit. Make sure you allow yourself and your child some time to find your own rhythm!

First grade curriculum kit customizer

I am a first-time homeschooler this year and this curriculum kit has been a lifesaver! It walks you through everything step by step and makes it super easy for first-timers to use!

My daughter loves her elite kit

My daughter is doing great with her 1st grade Timberdoodle curriculum.

Helpful tool

We are new to homeschooling, so it was very helpful to have the option of customizing the curriculum kits! It made it easier on our budget to order the bulk of what we knew we needed and wanted to use up front and leave room for purchasing "extras" later for birthday and/or Christmas gifts. Very satisfied with our purchases and the customer service we have received!

We Love Timberdoodle!

I love the custom kit options and have spent large amounts of time pouring over your catalog and kit packages planning our homeschool year. Thank you for offering custom kits, so we can pick and choose to get the price and products just right. I would recommend this curriculum to anyone!

one stop shop

Having several children that I've homeschooled has left several items in our library able to be used again. It was quite handy to be able to use the curriculum kit customizer to buy the necessary books and use what we have. I love having the guidelines to keep me on track.
