What I like about the curriculum is that it doesn't talk down to the children. It seems that the written textbook is a higher academic level than the online teaching or the workbook. Which is fine, because watching is a more casual experience, and in terms of writing, children often don't write so well as they understand the material presented.
I'll give some examples:
|Thumbing through the textbook, you can see that it goes into some pretty good detail considering it's for fourth graders.|
|The online program comes with PDFs so you can print supplemental worksheets to do at home.|
I left a sample lesson above. They always detail what materials you'll need. Rarely to never do they ask for weird stuff like two yards of rope, but otherwise this is pretty much the sort of lesson you'd tune into each day or twice weekly or whatever. You get to watch the lessons over and over during your agreement time, so you get to it whenever you feel like it. I often use the video lessons for the children when I have something to do that will take 20 minutes or I just want a short break for lunch.
It's a good break from my routine and I know the children are still learning quite a bit. They love it. I'm not sure if we'll continue next year as it's rather expensive. We might want to try another subject next time for variety.
