The Age 5-7 curriculum constitutes one year of academic instruction in science, social studies, language arts, reading, and math. As of September 2022, the Age 5-7 Level includes the Moving Beyond the Page Reading Program as well. You can read more about the reading program for Age 5-7 here.

In the science, social studies, and language arts 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.
