Product Description

What does your first grader need to learn in order for him/her to have a good education? Perfect for homeschoolers who enjoy the freedom to learn in whatever non-grade-segregated manner works best for them, the Core Knowledge Series isn't designed as a rigid comprehensive prescription, but as a way to provide a solid, common ground of knowledge that most students should have by the time they reach each grade.

Short, yet detailed sections are divided into general categories of language & literature, history & geography, visual arts, music, mathematics, and science. Sub-categories include many subjects that comprise the basic knowledge that a 1st-grade child should know. Clearly written, each topic is approximately a page in length and conveys interesting and challenging content. From Aesop's Fables and Mozart to computation facts 0-12 and the states of matter, your first grader will receive a thorough sweep of knowledge critical for further success. 342 pages, softcover, indexed.

This revised edition includes new detail in stories, additional guidance on how children learn to read, more activities in the math section, and a more engaging emphasis in history.
