Alpha Omega Lifepacs History and Geography Grade 5

by Deborah
(Auburn, WA USA)

We have found Alpha Omega Lifepacs curriculum is an amazing tool for us. We moved to USA from UK nine months ago and my fifth grader has really engaged with this area of curriculum. Fifth grade deals with American History and it has genuinely held our interest throughout.


The year's work, like all core Lifepacs, is divided up into 10 units that should each take about 18 or so days to complete.

We found the material is quite challenging in that there is a bit too much for the child to read and answer in one go independently, so we work together on it, taking turns at reading out loud to each other. The self tests are too difficult for us first timers with this subject matter so we do the self tests as open book tests and the unit tests more as proper tests.

The material is well presented and we have had a lot of fun learning all about the founding fathers and so on through history. We look forward to what 6th grade will offer us when we finally finish 5th grade later on this year.

Thanks for the Alpha Omega Lifepacs curriculum review, Deborah, and welcome to the USA! :) Blessings, Heather

Easy-to-use Alpha Omega Lifepacs

by Cindy Griffin
(Clinton, Oklahoma USA)

Home educator switches to Alpha Omega Lifepacs after a disappointing first year of homeschooling; read her story to learn more...

I have been homeschooling for three years. I used old textbooks the first year and despised it! We ran across the Lifepacs from Alpha Omega and fell in love. They are so easy to use. There is 10 workbooks per subject and each one takes about a month. They are very easy to take with us (we travel quite a bit).

Lifepacs have wonderful graphics and best of all every subject is Christian focused so they are learning the Word in every subject! I could not be happier and my kids love them. I recommend Lifepacs to all homeschoolers! I have a 6th grader and a 3rd grader. Compared to other curriculum the Lifepacs are very affordable.

Thanks for sharing your Alpha Omega Lifepacs experience with others, Cindy! Blessings, Heather :)

Alpha Omega LifePacs Tips

Alpha Omega LifePacs = Easy Homeschooling!

Alpha Omega LifePacs = Easy Homeschooling!

We love Alpha Omega LifePacs... after trying other curricula, ALPHA OMEGA home school curriculum has worked great for my boys and I.

For each Lifepac, I go through and mark each day's work (i.e. Mon. pp. 1-5 & at the bottom of pg. 5 put a red/pink star...that way they knew where to stop).

We have used Alpha Omega for three years and LOVE IT! I added the Alpha Omega Horizon Math in place of the Math LifePac. Horizon Math is more challenging, but has worked good for the boys.

Thanks for sharing your success with others, Joan, it's so appreciated. Cute picture too! :)

Alpha Omega Lifepacs Review

Alpha Omega LifePacs = Hassle-free Homeschooling

Alpha Omega LifePacs = Hassle-free Homeschooling

Homeschool mom shares how Alpha Omega LifePacs helped her enjoy hassle-free homeschooling even when life got hectic and tough circumstances came her way.

I have used Alpha Omega Lifepacs for about ten of the fourteen years we have been homeschooling. My kids all love it. It was convenient, when over the years of caring for four sick parents; we could pack a light backpack and head off to grandma's house for the day. It also reduced planning time in those hectic times in our lives.

It is a great curriculum if you have different grade levels (most of us do) to teach at one time. They get to the point and have just enough exercises to reinforce the learning without excessive busy work.

It is Christian based homeschool curriculum, but non-denominational. I have never come across anything that should be offensive to any Christian of any faith.

Although I would rather be educating in a more child-lead direction without a curriculum, my circumstances don't allow me to do that. I have tried other curriculum, and I always go back to Alpha Omega Lifepacs.

Ronda, your Alpha Omega LifePacs homeschool curriculum review is very helpful. Life is unpredictable, often serving up unexpected circumstances that thwart our perfect plans. With four sick parents, you could have easily given up on homeschooling. Instead you found what works for you, so you can continue to successfully school your children at home. Wishing you many blessings, Heather

Alpha Omega Homeschool Curriculum

Alpha Omega Homeschool Curriculum

Busy home educator recommends Alpha Omega homeschool curriculum for easy, on-the-go homeschooling...

We have used Alpha Omega Lifepacs for several years. The courses usually come with ten workbooks and a teachers guide per course per year.

I appreciate that every subject is biblically-based. The workbooks are very portable for travel purposes, one workbook per subject versus several books per subject.

If purchased early (April or May) the company gives discounts. I have also found them on ebay.

Thanks for sharing what you like about Alpha Omega homeschool curriculum as well as some great money-saving tips. We have used AOP for years with our older children and like them too. Blessings, Heather :)
