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!

My daughter's have done really well with the curriculum in this kit! They love learning the different subjects and each subject explains the information clearly. The curriculum also explains how to beat teach the information so it isn't overwhelming!
This is my third year using your kits. We absolutely love them. Thank you for helping create a wonderful fun way to learn.
Once again this year I spent hours, days, and weeks pouring over curriculum options offered by various homeschool companies. And, once again, I found that Timberdoodle fits the homeschool model we love best: lots of hands-on materials, STEM, and the incredible knack of making learning FUN! I am so grateful for the hours of research and the years of wisdom you pour into putting together your curriculum. And the fact that kits can be customized is icing on the cake. Again and again we open a workbook or other component of your kit and I am blown away by how well it fits my daughter and her learning style and needs. THANK YOU!
I will review the components of the 1st grade kit separately, but some of our favorites so far are: Create Your Own Planet; Imagidice; Postman Observation Game; What's New? What's Missing? What's Different?; and Critical and Creative. On a practical note, as my daughter's teacher, I highly appreciate that Math-U-See, All About Reading, and Spelling You See are all easy to use and make learning so straightforward. Well done, Timberdoodle team!!!
The scheduler book provides valuable information. Well laid out and easy to use as resource. Love the reading guide and book suggestions. Also love all the subjects put together for us! Timberdoodle has done all the work for us busy moms.
As a first time homeschooling, mom, I was so overwhelmed at first. I was researching all sorts of curriculums, taking copious notes, watching YouTube reviews and talking to other homeschooling moms. It was all very overwhelming. When I discovered Timberdoodle, it made me breathe a sigh of relief. Because they did all the research for me. They even bundled it altogether in one comprehensive kit. Then gave me 3 choices of which kit I would want. Definitely a no brainer. So I ordered the basic kit and added some things on later. I should've made a customizable kit, but now I know. We did the curriculum for Kindergarten and really liked it. I used to teach 2nd grade and I know what to look for in a good curriculum. I love all the things they chose. Our favorites were the games, of course, Bede's History (because of all the fun activities), math, and reading. We had such a good year and can't wait to start 1st grade!
