Product Description:

The patron saint of the Czech Republic, King Wenceslaus is immortalized in the Christmas carol. He was a real 10th century king well known for his generosity and Christian spirit. He gave freely to the poor and helped to spread Christianity through Bohemia. The book text is the carol itself, with a modern introduction, written in 1853 from music that was first published in 1582. This book is beautifully illustrated with lively characters and gorgeous backgrounds. On the last page is the music and all 5 verses of the song. 30pp, hc (with jacket,) 10.5"x10.5". ~Sara

Publisher Description:

This story, based on actual events that occurred in the tenth century, tells of a kind-hearted king and his page who set out to help a poor man on a cold winter's night and experience a miracle along the way. Tim Ladwig's energetic paintings bring new life to the familiar words and remind readers of all ages that helping others is a blessing.

Category Description for Memoria Press Fourth Grade Curriculum:

The revised 4th Grade Curriculum Manual assumes the continuation of D'Aulaire's Greek Myths, Latina Christiana I, Christian Studies I, States & Capitals and English Grammar Recitation I. The package is assuming a continuation from the 3rd grade. If you are starting in the curriculum at this point, you may want to look at the "Accelerated 4th Grade Curriculum Guide" instead (see website). Story of the World Vol. 1 is suggested as summer reading.




Category Description for Memoria Press Classical Curriculum:

Memoria Press now offers complete Curriculum Manuals and grade-level curriculum packages for PK-10 using the classical methodology. Recitation is used in every level for memorization of basic facts, systematic phonics and good books are used for reading education, copywork is used for teaching Bible truths, and music and art are included for enrichment in the early (K-3) levels. Each Curriculum Manual contains complete lesson plans for a one-year course of study.

The Curriculum Manuals are well-formatted and easy to use. In the front of each book you will find a checklist of the materials needed at that level, an explanation of this curriculum, instructions for lesson implementation, a recommended schedule and blank schedule for your own planning purposes, and 33 weeks of detailed lesson plans. Lessons include assignments from the books used at each grade level, as well as activity suggestions. The appendices include a variety of material for that grade level, and may include: prayers, letter activities, recitation, memory verses, read-aloud book list, poetry list and selections, and a paintings/music list for kindergarten and first grade. These pages are reproducible for family or classroom use.

Although most of the guides have been available for several years, the curriculum was restructured in 2015, with many of the programs originally included in 3rd grade now with a slower pacing to span 3rd and 4th grade. Guides for grades 3 and up have been modified to reflect this change, while the lower-level guides have only had minor changes. If you are already midway into the program with the original guides, you can still continue in that track with the older guides, now titled Acclerated Classical Core Curriculum Manual. You can find these along with the complete list of curriculum resources used with them on our website.

We have complete grade-level resource packages, consumable packages for “refill,” new user packages for levels that reuse resources from a previous level, read-aloud packages for each level and science and enrichment packages for the early levels. Curriculum resources are also listed individually (see website for specific contents of consumables and read-aloud packages). Please note that several of the programs include First Form Latin and Classical Composition, which should be completed in order, regardless of what is in the grade level package.If you have a student entering the program after fourth grade, you will need to start them in Classical Composition: Fable Stage and/or First Form Latin instead of what might be in the package.

This series is for the parent who wants a good classical curriculum which is outlined and ready to use. Simply open the book and follow the instructions. You will be well on your way to a quality education for your young ones. ~ Donna
