Read-Alouds, Not WorksheetsThis unit study is intended to be an enjoyable, shared experience between parents/educators and children. To that end, this unit study does not contain worksheets which are often used as busy work, and which many children would come to dread. Instead, this unit study focuses on books to be read-aloud to the children. There are over 250 book recommendations in this unit study.
With read-alouds, children can be easily introduced to new ideas, cultures, and places. Through read-alouds, children can be immersed in loving households, in the triumph of overcoming struggles and challenges, and in the wondrous fantasy of fairy realms. Read-alouds also spark some of the most important discussions, leading to the foundation of good character, integrity, responsibility, and kindness in the children.
A Semester or Longer
This unit study can last for a whole semester, taking about 2 weeks per region of the United States. It could easily be spread out over a year at a more relaxed pace by spending about one month per region. Alternatively, this unit study can be used more casually without following a specific schedule.
