My daughter and I are using the Prairie Primer right now and loving it! The Little House books have always been a big hit at my house so we couldn't wait to try this unit study when we heard about it We are using it for 4th grade and it's been a great way to get my daughter excited about learning while we study the 1800's period of history This unit study is really done well It includes so many exciting and fun hand-on activities that I know my daughter and I will remember always So far we've made homemade butter dissected an owl pellet learned a bit of knitting made molasses candy and lots more! This curriculum is great for grades 2-8 subtracting or adding to it as the need may be for various ages So far we've finished the first book-Little House in the Big Woods and had a blast with it! Now we are studying the California Gold Rush and reading one of the book recommendations from the Prairie Primer that is based on that time period It's fantastic! The only problem we have with the prairie primer is making my daughter slow down and not try to do all the activities at once! She actually wants to "do school" in her free time! I'm so glad we've had the opportunity to use this wonderful curriculum together I know that we are making memories that will last a lifetime as we read and craft and create together Having a highschooler in the home reminds me all too much that they grow so quickly and how important it is to enjoy these young years of learning together I heartily recommend the Prairie Primer to liven up your homeschool and remind you to make learning fun!

The Prairie Primer by Margie Gray is fantastic! My 5th grade daughter used it last year and this was the best unit study we've used so far in our four years of home schooling We read each of the Little House books and made a lapbook for each one using the suggestions and assignments in the Prairie Primer My daughter learned science history Bible cooking sewing and much more We loved the suggested hands-on activities like chopping firewood sewing a bonnet cooking Johnny Cakes She even set up a display at Home School Day at the Capital based around her Prairie Primer studies It was a hit! As her mother I enjoyed how easy it was to use I would recommend the Prairie Primer to anyone with children who love hands-on activity-based unit-study-style learning!

"The Prairie Primer" is a unit study written to cover the westward movement/pioneer era using Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" book series as the spine Topics covered in the unit study include: Bible literature art science creative writing cooking and history The pluses of this curriculum are:1 The curriculum is extremely affordable The unit study can be done over a period of one to two years 2 The study emphasizes character development from a Biblical perspective 3 The author has included a section on the study of Native Americans4 The unit study works well with all types of learning styles 5 The unit study method is great for teaching younger children basic library skills In regard to the older student it reinforces the basic library skills and teaches research skills The minuses of this curriculum are:1 Several of the books which are required for the curriculum have gone out of print and are no longer available The parent or older student will need to search for materials to replace those which have gone out of print 2 The description of the assignments seem vague The author gives you an idea but it is up to the parent/older student to expand on the idea and locate the resources so the student can complete the assignment Overall I think the concept of studying the life and era of Laura Ingalls Wilder is a fantastic idea for studying the pioneer era of United States History

Excited to get started
We are planning to start this Unit at the end of August and the kids and I are so excited! I've been looking through the Primer and making mental notes of the things I know we'll be doing and tweaking some other things. It's mainly for my 8yo but my 4 yo will be working along side us too, participating in the activities and listening to the reading. It's going to be so much fun! I only gave it 4 stars because it's not complete within itself, it has resource lists of other needed books. Which would be fine if we lived in a town with a library but we'll have to rely on the internet and I was hoping to pull away from online based learning this year.

My daughter loves the Little House on the Prairie books. She learns better with the unit study style, so I intend to use this as a complete curriculum for her 3rd grade year.

Is this the only curriculum you use for all subjects?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is the main curriculum. A math book is definitely needed. Also possibly a phonics program if the child needs that. Some people would choose to add science. There is a page in the unit study which shows what subjects are covered in each unit. Of course Art and music could be added as interests dictate. It is very flexible. I have used Cadron Creek's unit studies as the main curriculum with just math and arts extra. We have been very happy with the results.
Is this appropriate for 4 and 5 year old or should i wait until 2nd grade?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We've not used it long but I think you could pick and choose some of the things to do. Each day has a lot of tasks. Some are easy (making a corn cob doll of making butter) and some are more complex than others (study bears and write a report on them). We just pick and choose for our third grader. But we also don't use it as a complete curriculum.
Is this version paperback or spiral bound?
Kristen B on Nov 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a "perfect-bound" edition (i.e. regular binding not spiral bound).
