I received a complimentary Level 3 (1st Grade) curriculum set from Blue Manor Academy to review, but the thoughts are exclusively my own.

My research in homeschool started about three years ago. I had a calling hit my heart from the Lord that I was meant to be home educating my sons. The reason I felt this way is because I wanted them to have knowledge of the Lord and the Bible, I wanted them to be able to learn at their own rate, and I wanted them to know the essential academic knowledge and avoid the fluff. I also feel more comfortable my sons being home with me and knowing they are safe from unnecessary teaching and certain behavioral issues that are unfortunately in schools today.
Blue Manor Academy curriculum is thoughtfully and carefully put together, and shares these same ideals. I was pleasantly surprised to open the eBooks and see that there was information given for the parents before you even open any of the curriculum for the child. There is sound guidance and advice that has taken me years to understand. There is also templates for schedules and a certificate to present to your child.
One of the many things that it is wonderful about this curriculum, is that there is not a million worksheets or testing. I remember first starting out homeschooling, and I was somewhere in the middle of unschooling and typical classroom style teaching at home. My sons have comprehension understanding but it is verbal, as they are heavy auditory learners. I don't grade them and don't give them tests, so this curriculum fit our homeschool style very well.
This curriculum set includes many different subjects including Bible, Reading, Math, Geography, Science, History, Vocab Building, Government and Character. Each subject is broken down into specific lessons, and you can have your child learn at their own ability. There is not set lesson plans because all children learn in their own unique way. There are not many illustrations to distract your child from learning but the pictures that are used are gorgeous. Each lesson is simply to the point of what is supposed to be taught.
My oldest will be at first grade level come the fall and I can't tell you how excited I am that I found this amazing curriculum! It is Biblically sound and teaches not just academics, but also morals and character. I love that we will be able to learn at the speed he and I are both comfortable with so I would highly recommend this curriculum.
