Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
If you are new to homeschooling or need a complete package curriculum, you’ll want to check out entire grade packages, 1-5, from Homeschool Easy! When this review became available, I had already planned and purchased our entire school year and was doing my best not to disrupt the flow I’d created for our learners. As I looked over the website and saw the ease of the program, it nearly convinced me to change course for the year! I have spent the past year studying, dabbling with, implementing many styles and forms of curriculum. None of them seem as straightforward and simple as Homeschool Easy!
Since we have a 4th-grader this year, I specifically studied the materials for 4th Grade Entire School Year Curriculum.
If you’re looking for a basic, affordable, all-in-one curriculum, I can assure you, Homeschool Easy is a great one. You can also purchase subjects al la carte, so even if your child is virtual schooling via public or private school this year and you’d like to fill some gaps, that’s an option, too.
They offer a free one-week trial so you can see how it fits for your student and if you’re working at the needed grade-level.
Homeschool Easy is an 8-month, 32-week, all-in-one curriculum for grades 1-5. This digital full-package curriculum is a back-to-the-basics approach designed to save time and stress for those just wanting to homeschool simply. All you need is a computer or electronic device to download the files, access to Internet for some videos and readings, and a printer to print worksheets. You might want to keep a binder for each subject or one large binder with sections for each subject.
Here’s a glance at what the 4th grade package contains.
The 4th Grade Entire School Year includes:
Chapter books to read for the month as well as corresponding comprehension question sheets and vocabulary words, flash cards, word searches, crossword puzzles and more. You may have to purchase the recommended reading materials or borrow from the library or a friend. The first book in 4th grade is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Besides Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the second chapter book for month 1 is Shiloh.
4th grade grammar includes daily worksheets for sentences, parts of speech, and focuses on developing proper English in writing. I’ll share examples of grammar worksheets under “how it works” below.
4th grade history is focused on American history and patriotism and includes some videos from Britannica Kids. It also includes art projects and geography, as well as daily worksheets.
4th grade math includes worksheets and flashcards and starts with a review of place value, addition and subtraction, then moves into multiplication. It also includes grade-level division, fractions, decimals, lines and angles, volume and more. It is not common-core aligned, but instead focuses on traditional number sense.
Month 1 and 2 for science focus on classification then moves through the following:
Science includes worksheets, art projects, and links to corresponding videos.
Weekly spelling lists comes with example sentences that make the words come alive for the student. The spelling folder also includes flashcards and fill-in-the-blank quizzes and more that you can print and use if you’d like.
Writing includes weekly assignments and include topics such as book reports, essays, autobiography, science, history reports, creative writing and more.
How it Works
After making the purchase, you receive an email to access your files. Everything comes in well-organized, clearly marked folders along with a “how to use” guide.
Once you access this screen, you simply click on a folder to open, print, and go!
For example, here’s how it looks when you open the grammar folder.
Once you open the folder, here’s what you’ll find in “Week 1 Sentences.”
That’s it! They really DO make Home School Easy!
