Review: 

I continue to be impressed with each new grade level of the Catholic Heritage Curricula lesson plans. I could not imagine a more family-friendly format and the details are so impressive. On each two-page spread (which covers one week) there is a little "ideas" section which includes suggestions for celebrating feast days, an art masterpiece to display each month, and other things which help tie things together nicely. I love the beautiful quotes, simple games and other tidbits scattered throughout the lesson plans. The appendix includes an extensive religion supplement and resource especially designed for First Holy Communion preparation. Basic topics covered in this appendix are: Holy Manners, the Saints, Prayer, Reconciliation, Holy Mass and Preparing Our Hearts to Receive Jesus. A second, smaller appendix entitled "Tour the Continents: Learning About Other Lands and Peoples" offers a Catholic social studies course in conjunction with an encyclopedia set and a few other supplements.

The basic texts used are: Devotional Stories for Little Folks by Nancy Nicholson, American Cardinal Reader 2, My Catholic Speller A, Language of God for Little Folks A, MCP Math B, Faith and Life 2, Catholic Stories from Science 2, Map Skills A, Art with a Purpose, Writing Can Help 2, Fun Physical Fitness for the Home plus supplemental texts and educational materials included right in the lesson plans.
