WinterPromise Started as an Idea…
An idea that parents could enjoy all the benefits of the best of all homeschooling approaches, with few (or no) drawbacks.
Working from the idea that literature communicates powerfully to young minds, we developed a curriculum that is strongly literature-based. This helps us offer to parents the opportunity to do less teaching and more “learning together” with their children. This “Learning Together” method has the additional benefit of requiring almost no preparation for the parent, preserving as many moments as possible for “face-to-face” time with their children. It works for real-life families!
These living, wonderful books were able to capture the imagination of children, turn them into better, curious readers, and help them to remember historical detail in a way nothing else would. In addition, we chose books, especially for our younger learners, that drew them in visually first. The graphic approach of these books also helped include kinesthetic learners, as they are able to trace maps with their fingers, find objects on the page, or search for visual clues to questions their parents asked.
Literature is marvelous, but it has its limitations, especially with hands-on learners. Thus, we added vibrant activity resources to each of our programs. These resources include activity kits or marvelous WinterPromise exclusives produced created to involve families with little preparation, and other great items. We even provide other types of ideas to help parents introduce a hands-on aspect to the time with their children. These times create family memories and a family culture.
