Age 5 To 7

Overview

Explore patterns in nature. Learn how numbers can be applied in the real world. Engage in informative and interesting literature. Enjoy watching your child plan interesting projects like a "Sensible Party" where those who attend have to use all of their senses.

The Age 5-7 curriculum constitutes one year of academic instruction.

In the Moving Beyond the Page Age 5-7 curriculum, your child will explore all subject areas and will be given ample opportunity to practice letter recognition — along with reading and writing according to your child's ability. The curriculum does not assume that your child can read, but readers and non-readers alike will be challenged. The curriculum is filled with quality literature to enjoy with your child. Oftentimes, homeschoolers are only taught reading, writing, and math during the early years, but a truly comprehensive curriculum will expose them to science and social studies as well. These subjects can be the most engaging and exciting for a young child.

Prerequisites

  • Knows letters and their sounds
  • Recognizes and understands numbers 1-20
  • Usually used by children in kindergarten or first grade

Beyond Standards

All lessons are based on state and national standards, so you know that your child is gaining the valuable skills she will need in each content area. But we go far beyond the standards, which are a minimal requirement for what your child should be learning. We don't just want to teach your child what she needs to know to progress to the next grade level. We want her to love learning and to become a life- long learner.

Summary of Skills

The links below will take you to the Summary of Skills for each of the concepts that make up the Age 5-7 curriculum. The Summary of Skills is a list of the state and national standards that are covered within Moving Beyond the Page. This list can be useful for your own planning purposes, but it is also quite helpful when submitting required documentation to fulfill state and local reporting requirements.

What Else Do I Need?

While we do have many phonics and whole language experiences built into each unit, our curriculum does not teach the mechanics of reading. Many gifted 5-7 year old children know how to read, and there are many varying theories on how to best teach a child how to read. For these reasons we have chosen not to “teach” your child to read in our curriculum, allowing you to decide on a reading program that fits your philosophy and your child’s learning style if your child is not already reading.

Moving Beyond the Page encourages character development — kindness, honesty, and respect for authority. Even though we are not a religious curriculum, it would be easy to supplement each unit with religious stories and lessons. For example, when studying environments with your child you can discuss how God created the animals, their habitats, and your child.
