Non-Religious 2019 Eighth-Grade Curriculum Kit
This year you will love helping your child continue building his language, math, and thinking skills. He will study astronomy and geology, American history, and aviation. With creative art, approachable Shakespeare, and more hands-on materials that develop logic and spatial reasoning, this year will be a year packed with happy memories for both of you!
We asked parents who used our Eighth-Grade Kit how long their student spent on "school." Families estimated that they spent 3-5 hours a day for 4-5 days a week on items in their Timberdoodle Kit. That variation is likely to be impacted by how in-depth you take your child's studies, what your child's learning approach is, how distractible he is, and much more. 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!
