Mastery Curriculum: What It Is and Why You Should Include It in Your Homeschool
This week I want to talk about mastery curriculum–what it is and why I think you should include it in your homeschool. But first, I’d like to thank my sponsor for this episode: BookShark.Listen to the podcast
BookShark homeschool curriculum is literature-based, 4-day, and faith-neutral.
Amber Reed Davis, a busy homeschool mom, says,
“We can’t say enough good stuff about BookShark. We’re doing Levels 3 and 5 this year. My kids are hooked. Through the amazing books, we’ve traveled to fascinating places and learned so much! And we’re only on week 13! Who knew a middle schooler would ask if we could still do school on our 5th day because he wanted to find out what happens next in the books we’re reading? Also, I’ve been amazed at how much I’ve learned through reading along with them. Oh, and the 4-day schedule is perfect. We use our 5th day to catch up or just for fun field trips, experiments, and messy art projects.”
Amber is right! BookShark’s fully planned, 4-day homeschool curriculum flexes to match your busy lifestyle. The detailed Instructor’s Guides lay everything out so clearly that you are prepared to teach in mere minutes each day—open your guide, gather your resources (which are all included in your package), and go! Curriculum for ages 4-16 is available in All-Subject Packages or by individual academic areas: Reading with History, Language Arts, Science, and Math. WithBookShark’s literature-rich programs, your children will read (or have read to them) 35-50 engaging books each year! Visit BookShark to browse curriculum, download samples, or request a catalog.
Resources for Mastery Curriculum in Your Homeschool
In my experience, kids not only learn more with mastery curriculum, but also enjoy it more. When kids love what they’re learning, dopamine will aid retention of the material. I hope you will seriously consider including mastery curriculum in your homeschool this year.
Thanks again to BookShark for sponsoring The Homeschool Sanity Show.
