Why Learning with Five Senses Literature Lessons is the Best Way to Homeschool

Based on How Children Learn

Our programs work with your child and their natural curiosity about the world. Your child will learn with all five of their senses with playful games, activities, and hands-on experiences designed to create a deep understanding of the material.

 

Levels, NOT Grades

Every child deserves to be met where they are. Our programs are not based on age or grade level. They are based, instead, on skill level. We offer programs designed to work for a range of ages so that every child can find the right fit.

 

Fully Integrated to Teach ... well, Everything!

Every program covers social studies, history, science, art, health, language arts, and math. You don’t need a whole stack of lesson plans. We’ve got you covered so you don’t have to spend your whole day jumping from subject to subject.

 

Hands-on and Adaptable

Instead of focusing on reading and writing, we’ve built a program that includes hands-on activities, watching videos and engaging in discussions. We’ve included guides on how to adapt activities to your child’s own unique learning style and pace.

 

Easy To Use

Our programs are designed to fit naturally into your day.  Each all-inclusive program requires little to no transition between subjects. And the supply list for each lesson is clear, upfront and includes simple things you have around the house.

 

Starting The Big Conversations Early

We give you the prompts to have age-appropriate conversations with your child about tough subjects like inclusivity, social justice, discrimination, and kindness. Talking about these things with your child now lays the foundation for the strong, compassionate person they will become.

 

Meet Laura

As an occupational therapist, I saw a need for a curriculum that would give parents the tools to help their children grow physically, emotionally, and mentally to be healthy people. As a homeschooling parent, I spent years piecing together lessons for my own children that were developmentally appropriate and support their unique learning styles.

With Five Senses Literature Lessons, I have put the two realms of my experience together and created something new. Based on my knowledge of how children learn best, and my extensive study of homeschooling philosophies, I’ve put together a program that I can truly stand behind. It focuses on whole-child learning and emphasizes respect for children and their natural development. Five Senses Literature Lessons seeks to help children develop on a natural path with encouragement to gain skills that their brains and bodies are prepared to participate in.

I know from experience, that this program can work for any child that is willing to sit and listen to a story.
