LDS Homeschool Curriculum: The Four Year Plan by Kindred Learning
LDS Homeschool Curriculum Review
Latter-Day-Saint Christian perspective curriculum. I love the way this LDS homeschool curriculum works!
There are four guides that rotate after four years. This saves money in the long run! It has plans for all grade levels up to grade 12. Even the little kids! You can use the same guide for all levels at the same time! Each level group is geared towards elementary, middle school, high school. There isn't a math program (I like Math-U-See).

This is a comprehensive LDS homeschool curriculum! There are so many activities your kids just CAN'T get bored. Everything ties in together. Every month is outlined with each week separately outlined. For each month there are projects for each week and recipes to go along with the months theme. They even outline a beginning of the year party and one for the end of the year. They have field trip suggestions for each month, movies and my personal favorite, reading books.
Each guide has it's own extensive reading list. The list ranges from pre-reading to High School level.The Ebert's have tried very hard to make sure that most all of the reading books are readily available at your local library. What they find hard to find, they sell on their site. The system is intended for Little Schoolers (pre-k) through High School.Each month has plenty of lesson helps and anecdotes to help you through the month. Pictures, they have lots of pictures of their homeschool co-op doing the projects, plays, experiments, parties etc.
This curriculum is based on the Latter-Day-Saint religion and does focus on scripture reading from all books of scripture. I suppose if one did not want to use that part of this curriculum it would still be a great program.
My kids enjoy the projects and helping to plan the parties. I have used this program for the past 3 years and am on the last guide in the system. I'm glad that I can look forward to using the same books again next year. Of course my reading books will change along with reading levels in my household, but all the main books are here! How cool is that!Very informative review, Tori! It will very helpful for others looking for a comprehensive LDS homeschool curriculum program. Blessings, Heather :)
