The Kindergarten level provides instruction in reading, correct pencil grip, letter and number formation, and basic arithmetic counting, adding, subtracting, telling time, and counting money. Children ages 4-6 can use the program if they are reading ready, have the ability to count to 10, print their name, recognize most letters, rhyme words, and segment sounds.
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

I stumbled upon this box set while looking at Memoria Press Music Enrichment. I was so impressed I ordered the whole set.
We started kindergarten last week and it could not have gone better! The concepts are right on point for kindergarten level. I can just open the guide each morning and follow along with the plan. There are a lot of books used but the guide tells you exactly what to use, how to use it, and when to use it. Each week has themes which reinforce the concepts. I could not be happier with my choice.
1. I firmly believe that classical education is the most rigorous well rounded type of education. I cannot imagine not instilling a basic understanding of Latin, astronomy, and understanding of Greek and Roman thinking in my children. This being said, I have extreme difficulty finding classical curriculum that is not overtly Pagan. For an example, one textbook wanted my children to build a Pagan temple as soon as they opened the textbook. The lack of discernment is almost always evident in classical education. For an example, I often find that Classical schools and curriculum have middle and high school students reading Mein Kampf and Communist Manifesto. I am appalled that educators would put this garbage in the minds of children. While studying history is important, putting children inside the mind of Hitler or Karl Marx is exceedingly dangerous. Memoria Press is the only Classical Education curriculum developers I have found who clearly exercise great discernment and provide an education that does not disturb me, as a Christian educator.
2. I LOVE the quality literature approach to education.
3. Children learn to read with pure phonics. You won't find the disturbing word recognition approach used by public schools here.
4. Charlotte Mason's influence is overtly obvious in this curriculum. The short lessons, high quality literature, copy work, narration, and nature walks makes this curriculum a hit for my family.
I firmly believe that MP is the absolute best! I am so pleased to find my love of Classical Education, Christianity, Charlotte Mason, and quality classic literature all wrapped up in one beautiful package!
I use this curriculum in it's entirety with the full read aloud and science enrichment packages. I also add Apologia Science and Abeka History to the elementary package one day a week each, which to me is absolute perfect curriculum!
