Start by Choosing Your Winter Promise Exclusives in Step 1, Then Add the Components You Wish to Build Your Package
Step 1: Choose Your WinterPromise Exclusives
This Bundle is the “Heart and Soul” of the Royals 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. The Ebook and Mixed Bundles offer you additional ebook content.
This Book Bundle is Essential to Your Royals 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 often cover such universally-studied topics.
Step 3: Add Theme Completer Books
This Book Bundle Completes the Royals Theme
Though used for a shorter period than the resources in the Essential Bundle, these books provide cultural information in the book What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew, and stories of some of the largest characters of this period in several biographical resources.
Step 4: Decide on Theme Specific Add-ons
Take a Look at These Optional Resources:
We highly recommend the Music, Art & Writing Focus as it offers a good look into the culture of the Early Modern era. The other optional resources allow students to pursue an interest in fashion or Shakespearean theater. Each is scheduled in the Royals guide, with ideas on how to use the resources to expand a student’s understanding of the period.
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: 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.
Your Choice of Timeline Figures – You can choose from those below. Each are scheduled in your Royals guide.
These Resources Are Recommended for Completion of the Geography in This Theme:
Atlas of World History – This atlas will help students complete the historical maps assigned in this theme, and the pages needed are referenced in the guide. Though use of this particular atlas is not required — you could certainly use any good historical atlas — if you don’t have a historical world atlas, this would be a fine choice. It is scheduled in each of our world history theme guides.
World Maps CD – Your student will need world maps for the Early Modern theme, and this collection offers beautiful heritage style maps.
