A Little House in the Woods Curriculum

A Little House in the Woods Curriculum

Product Review (submitted on January 21, 2013):
HOAC has done it again. Another great Project Pack that covers great literature. The planning guide gives you a visual of what topics are being covered, what chapters will be read, what words will be studied, and what activities can be done. The study is flexible and doesn't have "Day 1", "Day 2" and so forth like in other Project Packs. Each section is listed by chapter and gives you an idea of how long it should take to complete. Most only take 1-2 days to complete while Chapters 6 & 13 say it should take 2-3 days. The related Pioneer book list is long with 23 books listed. Some are chapter books that can be read as read alouds before bedtime. Others are more resource books about Laura Ingalls Wilder. I really wish that there was a special section for school readers or books for younger tag-alongs but otherwise it's an excellent list. Another reason HOAC is known for excellent products is because their pictures and instructions for the lapbook pieces are so helpful. Even a newbie to lapbooking can confidently use this product.

Each Chapter has vocabulary words to study which are appropriate for this age group. Oral discussion questions are also specific for this age group and cover key points in the text. Most questions discuss not only why the characters did what they did but also how life was living in the woods in the 1800's. If you don't feel the topics covered are enough, there is an "Additional Topics to Research" section. They are relevant to the story and can be done an on interest-led basis. The lapbook pieces themselves are well designed and fit this study perfectly. Most pieces have the option of regular lines or primary lines. Now your child learning to write in cursive will have plenty of room to write down his thoughts. All-in-all an excellent Little House series product. I'm hoping that HOAC will also come out with a Note Pack for this book so my children who don't care for lapbooks can also benefit and have fun with this book. Just a thought. :)
