The Wonderful World curriculum is designed to be what children need to do to learn – play! This year-long program gives you the tools to create a magical, playful year of learning for your child. Each lesson gives you a list of picture books around a theme of the week, read as many as your child wants. Each lesson also has a nursery rhyme or song to sing, to work on vocabulary skills, and play with language. Then, there are some ways to play with the ideas of the week. These activities include games, imagination, problem-solving, and learning about the world around us!

The weekly themes include seasons, animals, trains, cars, countries of the world, and outer space. Wonderful World has activities and books that cover a wide range of things kids find interesting and want to learn about! This method means that school can be easy and fun, for all of you! Designed to be a perfect year of kindergarten, the activities also work for a range of ages, so siblings can all play and learn together. And because it is developmentally appropriate, you and your child won’t be frustrated by activities that are too hard to do for a child this age.

All of our programs are written by a homeschooling mom who is also an occupational therapist. She saw that there was a need for a secular, developmentally appropriate option for parents who want kindergarten to be easy and fun. She also wrote it to work for older students who have learning challenges and need something different to develop their language, fine motor skills, thinking, and reasoning skills. Lessons are engaging for the whole child and include working on developing fine motor skills before you start writing.

Other programs throw kids this age into reading and writing too fast, before they are ready, This leads to frustration, and some kids think they hate learning. Instead, this program will give you the tools to build motor skills and coordination that will prepare your child for reading and writing later. They will work on telling stories and drawing pictures, things that should come before they write their great novel. Don’t worry, there is plenty of time for that later. And with a playful year of fun, they will build the imagination needed to create novels!

This is a full-color, downloadable PDF document with links to videos and external resources, book and supply lists, worksheets, and corresponding activities for a full school year’s worth of learning.

    As a former elementary teacher with over 40 years of classroom experience, I must say how impressed I am with Five Senses Literature Lessons. It is chock-full of ideas which are easy to follow and comprehensive. 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.

    This curriculum has been 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 as I also have a 12-year-old homeschooling. 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. I tend to get the primary book suggested for each lesson, as a number of lessons are centered around the recommended book, then pull in related picture books from our extensive home library unless I can’t resist the additional recommendations. If you have a good library system, I think you will find many of these books there. Because this curriculum does not include writing and reading, which is mastered at a much wider range than 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.
