Step 1: Lesson Guide
Program 3 Lesson Guides contain the lessons which accompany each specific year within each level.
Each guide will include program booklists and resources, pre-reading notes, reading schedules, recitation selections, teaching notes, narration prompts, natural history demonstrations, object lessons, literary technique lessons and much more.
Select the lesson guides which correspond to the level you need. If you do not require any supportive resources, then you may complete your purchase after this step.
If you would like to add supportive resources to accompany your level, then go on to Step 2.
Step 2: Supportive Resources
Program 3 supportive resources include some books which have been republished for your convenience as well as Spotlights: Illuminating Great Artists & Musicians, which are mini guides covering an assortment of artists and composers for your study of the arts.
Select the supportive resources, such as republished books, which correspond to the level you purchased in Step 1. If you'd like to add any mini guides for your study of the arts, then choose any of these you prefer.
Once your choices have been selected and purchased, then you should have all that you need for a complete and thorough program for the year!
