We use Bookshark's all-subject curriculum for Levels K-5.
To find out which Level your child is best suited for, check them out below:
Our Level K packages are designed for students from ages 5-7. If your child is in that age range, they may be ready for BookShark's Level K program!
Young children are natural learners (it is one of the reasons they ask so many questions), but academic work requires a different set of skills than the ones your child has been building. We expect the Level K work to take about 1.5-2 hours for you and your child.
Please consider whether or not they are ready to:
Listen and pay attention when you read chapter books out loud
Answer questions about what they hear and see
Sit still for short periods of time
Follow simple instructions
Work with you to complete worksheets and activities
Our Level 1 packages were designed for students from ages 6-8 and we’ve been told that our material can be quite challenging for children on the younger end of the age spectrum. This is not surprising; there is a big difference in development between a 6 year old and an 8 year old!
We expect the Level 1 work to take your child about 2-3 hours. Please make sure that your child is able to:
Read at a 1st Grade level or higher (see our Quick Reading Assessment)
Write letters and simple words
Copy a sentence out on paper
Recall and follow simple instructions
Sit still and focus for 10-15 minutes at a time
