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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I love the curriculum!

It’s hard choosing something for younger children. Of course, we want to enrich their minds, but how much is too much or not enough? The idea of engaging the 5 senses to school is such a simple and natural idea. The planning work for the parent is minimal but has room for those who prefer to add extra. My daughter (almost 5) begs to do school with this curriculum. The stories and activities are all very thorough and will give any child a fun education. We didn’t start this curriculum at the beginning of the year, but my daughter was happy to start with autumn after the New Year. Especially since apples are the first topic introduced, her favorite. We also love bears! We may skip to a different section after, but that’s why this is great, the flexibility is there. We’ll repeat the curriculum next year, just adding a little more. The topics are interesting and I doubt a second year would bother anyone, especially since food is involved and field trips.

A great addition to our homeschool.

It was put in my lap just as I had given up on finding something appropriate for my five-year-old with learning and physical challenges. I needed something that was easy to pick-up-and-go and wasn’t too involved. I truly believe the best way to learn at this age is through exploration and play. This is our primary curriculum for our now six-year-old. The number of activities is just right for helping build new skills and understanding without overdoing it. A great selection of books is recommended in this curriculum. ecause this curriculum does not include writing and reading, which is mastered at a much wider range then traditional schools would have you believe, it can work for a variety of developmental levels, ages, and abilities. I highly recommend this curriculum especially if your child has any learning challenges.

Donna says...

It is chock-full of ideas which are easy to follow and comprehensive.

As a former elementary teacher with over 40 years of classroom experience, I must say how impressed I am with Five Senses Literature Lessons. I appreciate the effort that Laura has made in listing not just resources and materials, but also in creating the addendum. I love that some of the ideas encourage community responsibility and discovery, along with second language opportunities. I think this is a fantastic buy and a terrific way to provide children with a fun learning environment.

My FAVORITE part is that we can change it as needed!

I think hands down my FAVORITE part of this curriculum is that we can change as needed. It's technically "leaf week" but our leaves are not at peak yet. It's also really rainy and gross! Definitely not leaf hunting weather.

So we will jump ahead and do Spiders and Bats this week!

About Our Creator

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 a 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.
