Our Secular Packages retain the neutral resources from our Starter Packages (such as All About Reading, Saxon Math, and Story of the World) while replacing others with the addition of neutral or secular materials.

  • Language Arts: First Language Lessons is added for grades 2-3, as well as Essentials in Writing/Literature at the upper levels. G.U.M. Drops, Spelling Workout, Ready Readers and Zaner-Bloser Handwriting are also included to round out language arts.
  • Social Studies: History is world focused in elementary, with Story of the World (Grades 1-4) and History Quest (Grades 5-6). Grades 7-8 add geography tools to the US History Detective series.
  • Science: Includes Science Odyssey or Exploring the Building Blocks of Science depending on grade level with Friendly Physical Science for 8th grade.

Category Description for Rainbow Curriculum Starter Packages:

"I need your 7th grade curriculum package." How often we've heard similar pleas, but didn't have a package option to offer. Now we do! With the new homeschooler in mind, we wanted them to be easy to jump into and get started. They are! We also wanted them to be solid and strong in academics. They are! And we wanted them to utilize a variety of homeschooling products, so you would have a better idea of what works well for you and your students. They do! Can you tell we're just a bit excited about these packages? They include products we have used in our own schooling. They include products that have a proven track record in terms of success. They include products that are effective with a variety of learning styles.

We offer four series of packages for grades K - 8.

  • Starter Packages include some items with a Christian perspective.
  • Economy Starter Packages include budget curriculum choices some of which are items with a Christian perspective.
  • Secular Packages are similar to our Starter Packages but do NOT include any items with Christian perspective.
  • Standards-Based Packages include courses from mainline curriculum publishers that are aligned to state and national standards.

As you progress in your homeschool experience, you will get a better feel for the types of materials that work best for you and your students. But for now, our main goal in putting together these sets is to make it easy for you to get started. We want you to be able to Homeschool with Confidence! ~ Janice

Is this package actual books or are they online only?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: These are actual books. There are no online components in this package.
Is there any way to substitute items? For instance, my child is advanced in Spelling and will be ready for Spelling Workout E. Also, we already have all the manipulatives for Math.
Traci on Apr 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, I'm sorry but there is no way to make any substitutions or changes in the packages. However, all of the package items are available for sale separately (see links in description). I'm sure that what you would save in terms of the math manipulatives would make up for the slight discount that comes with the package.
Does this set come with a lesson plan for teaching all the subjects?
User on Oct 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this package does not come with complete lesson plans although many of the courses have lesson plans as part of the curriculum. Some (like Saxon Math and Spelling Workout) are very straight-forward and the student just plans to work one lesson per day or week. If you have difficulty, any of our consultants will be happy to help you. You can call - 888-841-3456 - or use the chat feature from the website or email (consultants@rainbowresource.com). Our office hours are M-F, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm Central time.
Will this cover an entire year of 3rd grade?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the programs included in this package provide an academic year curriculum for math, language arts, science, and social studies.
