Timberdoodle's review
 
Do you need a custom 8th Grade Curriculum?
This year you will love helping your child continue building his reading, math and thinking skills. He will study physical science, world history, and robotics. Add in creative art, robust STEM kits, and more hands-on materials that develop visual perception and creative thinking - this year will be a year packed with happy memories for both of you!

We asked parents who used our Eighth Grade Kit how long their student spent on "school." Over 70% of them estimated that they spent 3-5 hours a day on their kit. That is a lot of variation, and is likely to be impacted by how in-depth you take your child's studies, what is your child's learning approach, how distractible he is, and much more. Make sure you allow yourself and your child some time to find your own rhythm!

Love the products that I get from Timberdoodle! March 5, 2015
Reviewer: Crystal N.  
Love the products that I get from Timberdoodle! My son loves them too! It was very scary to start homeschooling and some of the different programs out there were not user friendly to either the parents or the students and we were getting discouraged and beginning to think that we made a huge mistake pulling our son out of public school. Then I stumbled across Timberdoodle and I have been happy ever since! I love the way the math is on the computer with the automatic grading, (has to be one of my favorites!) all the products work together so well and they are so thoughtfully laid out in a manner to encourage self study among the students and overall make it more engaging for the whole family! I love sitting down with my son and working on different things together as we work our way through spelling, grammar, history, math, and so many others! Would recommend Timberdoodle to any family wanting to homeschool!

Very accurate with grade level February 18, 2015
Reviewer: Karen L.  
Very accurate with grade level curriculum but not all inclusive. Study lessons are missing.TD Reply: Karen, we're sorry you were disappointed. Your kit should have included an Eighth Grade Handbook with a weekly checklist for your student to follow. Timberdoodle's philosophy is that this weekly approach takes the stress off of learning and better lets each family develop the education schedule that works best for them.

Eight Grade Complete Core Curriculum March 24, 2014
Reviewer: Rebecca H.  
Purchased this curriculum for next year so we haven't actually used it yet but I have started looking over everything in it and I must say that we are very excited about our next coming school year. It is a whole lot more hands on than what we have used in the past and more fun activities that go along with the learning.
