Elementary Homeschool Curriculum for First Grade - Oak Meadow Review




Welcome!  We are glad that you are here!  I invite you to follow me on Pinterest, G+, Facebook and Subscribe to BJ's Homeschool.



Summary - Elementary Oak Meadow Homeschool curriculum is a project based, hands-on program that was ideal for my active child.  It includes early academics with a focus on art and handwork, too.  This post may included affiliate links to products that we love and have used or would use in our own homeschool. Thanks for supporting my blog.  Please see my disclosure policy.


We found Oak Meadow Curriculum early in the elementary years. I loved how it was hands-on yet still presented all the early academics, but in a fun and approachable way.  And it was not hard to teach!

Each week was laid out in easy to follow and adaptable lesson plans.

I was delighted when I found Oak Meadow – First Grade – full of hands on activities, beautiful art, and lots of resources for her early learning. 

I love how it is so rich in art....and crafts, too.

Art is included in almost every subject, even math!


For beginning handwriting, each letter was drawn in the shape of an animal.  Please see below.

Each letter of the alphabet had a unique drawing like this!
B is for Bear, and the child gets to draw one!

This approach gave my daughter a nice, gentle introduction to elementary academics.  
The Oak Meadow First Grade curriculum consists of the teacher's manual, easy to follow lesson plans and the core curriculum, hands-on, all rolled into one!  

Here's some of the books that were included in their lessons.  (They could be gotten from the library, instead of purchasing from Oak Meadow.)
