Themes

There are four themes. They include science and history daily as well as weekly art, music, and PE/health lessons. Every day there is one of the weekly courses. Art, music, and PE/Health are weekly courses.

There are just two levels for the program years. The first through fourth and fifth through eighth levels. I set it up that way so that all of your children can be studying the same thing at the same time. They may all be learning about pyramids or bones, or whatever, on the same day, but they most often will have different readings or videos to do so.

Your children should do the lessons indicated under their level. Assignments are listed under headings of Levels 1 – 4 and Levels 5 – 8. A student in the 6th level would do the assignments listed under the heading Levels 5 – 8. A student in the 3rd level would do the assignments listed under the heading Levels 1 – 4.

When you choose a history theme, My EP Assignments will automatically set these courses to be studied together. Choose any theme, but I would suggest choosing the same one for all of your children. Then just rotate through them.

The themes are as follows:

Theme 1 — Biology, Ancient History, Matthew and historical books of the Bible

Theme 2 — Animals, Early American History, Mark and New Testament minus the other gospels and Revelation

Theme 3 — Earth Science, Geography and Cultures, Luke and Psalms and Proverbs

Theme 4 — Physics and Chemistry, 20th Century History, John and Prophets

Music and art will follow along with the history studies as much as possible.

    Hi 🙂 I am not seeing the links for years 2 or 3, nor days 61-180 for the links labeled year 1. Could you explain how this works please?

      I have not made years 2 or 3, so there are no links yet. My family studied year 4 last year and we are studying year 1 this year. 2013 spring/summer I will start putting up year 2 which will be early American history and zoology (animals). Right now you can choose between year 4 (physics/chem, modern history) and year 1 (biology, ancient history). Then you just need to choose what level your child is at. You should look at the reading assignments they will be doing to decide. Then they just go to the day 1 on their level and after their English and math they click on whatever program year you are studying. It will take them right to the same day, no need to find a separate link for days 61-180. I programmed it to jump down the page to the day you are on. Give it a try.

    Hello! New here, I’m
    searching for your Treasure Island study, can you please tell me how to locate it? Also, do you have any other studies for the classics? Thank you

    Hi! Maybe I missed it somewhere, but do you have a book list? I know you have a materials list, but wonder about book lists. I would like to have some of the materials in book form as well as onlune. Thanks!
