Timberdoodle's Scheduling Helps Guide

This guide helps you to know which books to use when and how to schedule your school year. A weekly schedule is included to give you enough structure to make sure your child doesn't miss anything, without the stress of an overly specific plan that leaves no room for the give and take of real life.

See samples in the pictures above.

It doesn't look like schoolwork, but it is! Featuring rhymes and riddles, editing activities, mind-benders, sequencing, and folk tales, Language Smarts is a core standards-based language arts curriculum with a whole host of child-pleasing activities. Each Language Smarts page is brightly colored with plenty of white space to feel easily doable. Language arts has never looked so fun!

Language Smarts

A Reason for Handwriting

We wish we'd had A Reason for Handwriting while growing up. With each ten- to fifteen-minute daily lesson built around Bible verses, content is not only instructional, but also inspirational. Plus, at the end of each week, your children will be given the opportunity to apply excellence to their work as they copy their verse of the week onto their choice of "Scripture Border Sheets." Done with care, these completed sheets are worthy of sharing with friends and family.

With 125 dynamic writing lessons, Daily 6-Trait Writing will provide your child practice and instruction concerning all the essential skills necessary to becoming a competent writer. Research proves that a solid understanding of the six traits of writing improves a child's ability to write successfully and just fifteen minutes or less a day is all it will take. Daily 6-Trait Writing is correlated to state standards for educators, with a dash of fun for our apprentice writers.

Daily 6-Trait Writing

Sequential Spelling DVD

In second grade, your child will be ready to begin Sequential Spelling. It is not only the most logical spelling program we've seen, but it is also one of the easiest to use. Using the computer DVD, your child will type in each spelling word on his daily list and correct any mistakes. That's it! The sequences are based on building from easy words to advanced words such as from all, to tall, stall, install, installment, and installation; this is an intuitive approach with no memorization required.

We love Math Reasoning, but some children need just a bit more drill work to master math. JUMP Mathematics offers a systematic, precept-upon-precept math program with simple, uncluttered pages. JUMP Mathematics is mastery-oriented, clear, and to the point.

JUMP at Home

Math Reasoning C

Math doesn't need to be tedious and Mathematical Reasoning proves that with its bright pages, interesting story problems, and critical-thinking based approach. Concepts spiral gradually, so that children do not forget as they go, and are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Building Thinking Skills Book One was a favorite school assignment in our family. This comprehensive, straightforward program develops four basic analytical skills (similarities/differences, sequences, classification, and analogies) through both figural and verbal problems. Sound intimidating? Don't worry, the exercises are clear, with sample completed activities so that the student can see exactly what to do. The activities offer lots of variety too, from finding the identical matching figure to selecting the most similar adjective from a list or describing the parts of a whole.

Building Thinking Skills 1

Daily Geography 2

Basic geography is essential, but done in large, infrequent doses it can become tedious or, worse yet, too quickly forgotten. Daily Geography uses a short daily lesson approach that avoids both pitfalls.

(also includes everything in Basic Package)
Timberdoodle's Complete Curriculum Kits include everything listed above plus science, history, construction, readers, and additional hands-on tools to add sparkle to learning time.

Word Fun

Written in a whimsical and conversational manner, Word Fun is a gentle introduction to the eight most significant parts of speech: nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, conjunctions, interjections, and prepositions. Word Fun's vivid and imaginative, full-page illustrations will help even your younger children visualize each part of speech. The goofy storylines and striking, full-of-movement illustrations in Word Fun make what would otherwise be a dull topic inviting.

Designed to be used in Amish classrooms, these basal readers are solidly wholesome, with none of the fantasy that is commonplace in both Christian and secular readers. Because the Amish don't use electricity, you won't find stories dealing with the latest in films, computers, or TVs. Instead, the stories are centered on farm life, with horse auctions, harvests, and LARGE families. With simple typesetting and a few black-and-white sketches, these hardback books are not splashy, but are lovely in their simplicity.

Tenzi Game
77 Ways to Play Tenzi
Tenzi + Card Pack

Simple, fast, fun, and purposeful, Tenzi is a perfect addition to your child's curriculum. In the original game players roll 10 dice, and reroll the ones that don't match until all 10 display identical numbers. Too easy? Opt for one of the many variations, like Splitzi (you must have five dice of one number and five of another), or Target Tenzi (you race to be the first to attain a numeric goal, for instance 56), or... well, the options are endless! Tenzi requires fast hands and the ability to make quick decisions and accurate calculations. Colors vary. Bonus 77 Ways to Play Tenzi card deck offers more ideas on how to use Tenzi to build math and logical thinking skills.

A favorite during our photo shoot, this Smart Game has your child guiding the Viking boats safely through the storm to their own home ports by spinning the "wave" pieces. Easy to learn, yet Vikings Brainstorm's forty-eight challenges will test sailors and landlubbers alike.

Vikings Brainstorm

Vikings Brainstorm

Engino Engineering's system of versatile rods and connectors are among the most multifaceted construction toys in the world today, making the Engino Inventor Basic 30 an excellent early introduction to hands-on engineering. The Inventor Basic 30 contains wordless instructions with exploded views of the step-by-step approach to building eight models, a number of which can be motorized with the bonus 3V geared motor. An additional 22 models can be downloaded from the Engino website, or let your young engineer create his own designs. 193 pieces.

A colorful, conversational approach to science, Exploring Creation with Botany is also very easy to teach. This program uses a notebook-based approach, meaning that as you go through the course your child will be asked to write, draw, or dictate the results of his experiments into a notebook. Not only will this help him retain what he learns, but at the end of the year you will have a lovely record of his work! The hands-on experiments sprinkled throughout the book are sure to be a highlight for both of you. Your Complete Curriculum includes the Exploring Creation with Botany hardbound textbook and a Junior Notebooking Journal. One note: Don't feel you need to fill in every spot in the notebook; pick and choose what your time and your child's interest allows!

The Story of the World 2 Readers
The Story of the World 2 Activity

History is a story -- isn't it time you read it that way? The Story of the World is a captivating read-aloud series which will introduce your children to the marvelous history of the world presented chronologically from the beginning of time. The details of battles, kingdoms, cultures, and customs from every continent and major people group are woven together into a story that children will find mesmerizing. With short chapters, many less than seven pages, The Story of the World presents history in small, easily-digestible chunks. Of particular appeal to children will be the occasional story about a hypothetical child in the culture of that time and fictional stories that were popular during that time. In your Complete Curriculum we include both the reader and the student activity book for Volume 2, covering the Middle Ages (400 AD - 1600 AD).

The Family Doodle Book is the perfect balance between writing and drawing. Doodling is a brain-stretching art form, and with 142 pages of prompts, The Family Doodle Book will allow your child to collaborate with siblings, parents, or grandparents to share their ideas, history, or dreams. If you complete this book with your child he will see that drawing isn't some odd activity for little kids but encouraged in parents as well.

Q-Bitz Solo

Thinking Putty

When one of our children was a preschooler, we received the best advice a parent of a kinesthetic child could receive: Let her wiggle. And wiggle she did. I don't think she sat for schoolwork for many years. Thinking Putty offers your child a way to move without becoming a distraction. An impressive, adult-sized handful of high-quality, moldable putty, the non-toxic, non-gooey Thinking Putty will bounce, stretch, tear, drip, snap, even shatter. Finally, your little wiggler will be able to sit and listen!

Spectrum Test Practice offers a comprehensive and sequential way to practice the content areas offered on numerous standardized tests, plus access to online state-specific test practice. The up-to-date content reflects national standards and includes practice tests in reading, lanuguage arts, and math.

Spectrum Test Practice 2

Q-Bitz Solo

Visual perception training has never been this engaging! Q-bitz uses sixteen colorful cubes to recreate the patterns on the included cards. Start by simply having your student replicate the pattern on one of the cards. Next, time him and have him try to beat his last time. Finally, let him study the card for ten seconds, then flip it over and see how much he can recreate from memory!

Smencils (Scented Pencils) are made from 100% recycled newspapers; you can even see the layers of recycled newspaper when you sharpen them! Individually packed in their own freshness tubes (made of corn-based biodegradable plastic), guaranteed to keep the delicious aromas fresh for two years. (One Smencil included with each Complete Curriculum.)

Gourmet Scented Pencil

(also includes everything in Basic and Complete Packages)
Our Elite Curriculum Kits include all of the materials listed above along with even more bells and whistles such as art, games, more thinking skills, a plant cell puzzle model, and even The Story of the World on CD!

TinTin In America

Countless mothers have told us that their sons' pivotal points in reading came when they were introduced to Tintin, the most revered graphic novel series in the homeschool community. Set in the 1930s, Tintin in America depicts the real-life problems of gangsterism during the Great Depression. This Young Reader's Edition includes character biographies so new Tintin readers can get to know the key players, additional pages of back-story, plus the global history of Tintin, with character and story inspirations, historical photos, original sketches and diagrams, timelines, and more. Note that some references are made to social problems of that era (see complete product description for details).

Endless possibilities, endless opportunities, endless fun; Icosoku is a brilliant mathematical brainteaser with unlimited challenges. Place Icosoku number buttons randomly around the surface, then match the dotted tiles to the numbers. The dots on the Icosoku tiles surrounding each number button must add up exactly to the number on the button. You've succeeded when you've placed all the dotted tiles correctly so the numbers match the surrounding dots, with no dotted tiles left over.

 Icosoku Jr

Engino Inventor 60

Our Elite curriculum doubles your engineering fun, upgrading Engino engineering and construction from the Inventor Basic 30 to the Inventor Pro 60. With more pieces, detailed instructions for eight projects included, and instructions for 52 more models downloadable from the Engino website, your young engineer will gain a lot of experience with this set. Wordless instructions are clear and show exploded views of the step-by-step approach to building each project.

All the complexities of plant cells can be hard to digest with just book learning. The Plant Cell Model provides a unique way for learning the essential components to these building blocks of life. Each six-inch Plant Cell Model contains twenty-six super-detailed, detachable pieces and features cutaway sections of the various cell parts. Assemble and disassemble as many times as you like, as these science puzzles are made to last.

4D Science Plant Cell Model

Famous Figures of Medieval Times

While you read historical accounts aloud, your avid artist can color in the detailed figures of ten people who shaped history, like Richard I (The Lionheart), Charlemagne, Leif Eriksson, Joan of Arc, Marco Polo, and Francis of Assisi. A hole-punch and common fasteners allow their arms and legs to move and their swords and shields to flash. For the meticulous child who wants to color it exactly right, matching pre-colored action figures are also included.

Featuring the same content as The Story of the World book, this convenient audio book allows you to listen in the car, while fixing dinner, or at any other time when your ears are freer than your hands!

The Story of the World 2 CDs

Oil Pastel Workshop

A brand new kit from Djeco, the What Can You Draw with Spirals Kit teaches Spirograph art using an ingenious magnetic plate to avoid slippage and frustration! Includes 20 pictures to finish.

To help solidify your child's grasp of basic math facts, we include Wrap-Ups Multiplication and Wrap-Ups Division for hands-on drillwork. Your child simply wraps the string from the problem to the answer, then moves on to the next problem. Once he's completed the board, he can flip it over and check his answers. If the string lines up with the ridges on the back of the board, he's gotten them all correct.

Reviews from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team:

A Look at Our 2nd Grade Timberdoodle Curriculum Review
"...With a mix of academic workbooks, learning through games, creativity building activities, and more, I was so impressed by how well-rounded the curricula are. Even still, having never seen any of the books in person, and only having watched a very basic Timberdoodle Curriculum Review online, I was taking a leap of faith. I wasn’t disappointed in the least...Overall I would highly recommend the Timberdoodle Homeschool Curriculum for parents interested in a curriculum that will cover all the necessary academics and teach creative thinking, analytic thinking, and learning though play..."
