Timberdoodle's review
 
Do you need a custom Third Grade Curriculum?
This year you will love helping your child continue building his reading, math and thinking skills. He will study zoology, learn about early modern times, and practice his keyboarding skills. 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 Third Grade Kit how long their student spent on "school." Nearly 80% of them estimated that they spent 2-5 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!

3rd Grade Custom Curriculum Kit November 3, 2015
Reviewer: Kimberly  
This is our first year with Timberdoodle and our second year of homeschooling. Timberdoodle was on my radar last year, but we ended up going with one of those massive curriculums, you know....the one with the 6-inch thick, 36-week agenda in a binder? Eventhough I read reviews and the information about Timberdoodle's third grade program, when I opened the Elite curriculum, I actually searched high and low for a similar agenda. I was a bit confused at first as all I could locate was a half-inch, illustrated paperback. I was skeptical. Fast forward three months and you find a happy mom and a happy kid. Gone are the Sunday afternoons of pulling the weekly agenda out of the 6-inch binder and handwriting each subject and to-dos into another day planner, which was necessary because of the over-whelming amount of information to comb through each week. My daughter was not able to look at the teeny, tiny print week to week and pull out what she was supposed to do. Therefore, I would spend hours and hours color coding and making a pretty weekly and daily planner for her (I used the ultimate homeschool planner).Would you like to know how much time it takes to plan with Timberdoodle? 10 minutes (and that's because I have to hike to the opposite side of the house, up two flights of stairs, uphill....through 10 inches of snow....ha ha to retrieve my printout). I have not had to consult the handbook since week. I use the automated Timberdoodle Scheduler and print it out. Within two minutes of reviewing the printed page, my daughter understood her weekly plan. She enjoys highlighting her completed work. (I do write the page numbers in the checkboxes per subject which is what she is highlighting once completed).Anyway, if you are reading this and you are on the fence (as I was) about curriculum choice, fearful of the unknown, and thinking that if you don't go with the looming, agenda-based curriculum in a box, take it from this mom and ex-project manager, that Timberdoodle is the way to go. If you have a child who struggles to find independence and self-confidence within learning, or struggles with learning anxiety, the Timberdoodle curriculum from Handbook to Science is proof positive that learning can be fun!

Just what we were looking for! March 23, 2015
Reviewer: Megan A.  
After lots of research for something more hands on we decided to give Timberdoodle a try. We chose the 3rd grade complete for our son & have been very pleased! Our son has enjoyed his schoolwork this year. The only thing that didn't work for us was the spelling CD-ROM & that was because our son was not yet familiar with typing. Overall this complete curriculum has been a perfect fit!

Good basics for first time homeschoolers October 28, 2014
Reviewer: Peggy M.  
We are homeschooling for the first year, so I liked that a package was put together for me. We got the basic curriculum, and added some science and a few other things. We are non-Christians, so the scripture-based handwriting book was traded out for a different cursive workbook. Otherwise, we are pleased with everything in the package. My son's favorite subject is math, and he loves that he can do math on his own on the computer. Most of the books come with enough instruction or answer keys so that I don't ever feel like I am floundering when I'm helping him understand something.
