Start by Choosing Your Winter Promise Exclusives in Step 1, Then Add the Components You Wish to Build Your Package
Step 1 (REQUIRED): Choose Your WinterPromise Exclusives
This Bundle is the “Heart and Soul” of the American Story 1 Theme
You’ll need these resources to complete your theme. These resources are specially created for a rich educational experience by WinterPromise, and so they offer a lot of content presented in intriguing ways, including active learning opportunities. Most are used for many or all of the weeks of the year, and they focus on practical, you-can-do it, open & go family experiences!
You can compare below whether the Ebook, Mixed, or Print Bundle is right for your family.
Step 2 (REQUIRED): Decide on the Themed Essentials Books
This Book Bundle is Essential to Your American Story 1 Theme
The resources in this bundle are used for many weeks and represent the essential content your student needs to work through this program. They are also books that would make outstanding additions to your family library, because they cover such universally-studied topics.
Step 3 (REQUIRED): Add Theme Completer Books
This Book Bundle Completes the American Story 1 Theme
Though used for a shorter period than the resources in the Essential Bundle, these books are student favorites because of their high-interest topics or the active learning opportunities they offer.
Step 4 (OPTIONAL): Decide on Theme Specific Add-ons
You Can Add These to the American Story 1 Theme
Native American Focus Bundle– This set of books allows students to learn about Native American tribes and their traditions. We strongly recommend you add this important aspect of American Story 1. All these resources are scheduled in the American Story 1 guide, and the bundle is considered an intrinsic part of American Story 1.
Early American Trades & Crafts Kit – This optional kit provides a wonderful assortment of early American crafts that reflect the trades practiced by colonial Americans and others, and the supplies to complete them. You can see a full list of activities by clicking into that item below.
Step 5 (RECCOMENDED): Add Adventure Reading
This Bundle Offers Families Read-Together Fictional Books
Our Adventure Reading book sets are designed for families to read together, and spark discussions about important topics and values. They are a valuable time for families to use for connecting and passing along priorities and values to their kids in easy, teachable moments. Many sets include award winning titles that you’ll want as “friends” in your family library!
Step 6 (OPTIONAL): Add Notebooking Resources
These Items are Required if You Don’t Already Own Them:
Timelines in History – Each student you’re schooling needs their own copy.
