    I am looking forward to using your curriculum with my son! I was wondering if you would share what homeschool curriculum you use for your children? I’m new to the homeschool world and would love any advice or recommendations. Thanks!

    • Michelle says

      This is something I get asked frequently in emails. Especially since we have only published a one year curriculum. "What curriculum do I use with my children now?" I've been reluctant to answer just because what works for one family (or child) may not work for another. BUT I do feel I can point people to some curriculums or resources for further investigation. I'm thinking a blog post on curriculums may be in order… and possibly overdue. Check back over the next couple weeks. I will be putting together a list of curriculum links.

      • Jennypenny says

        Do you have an Amazon listmania or something similar with all of the books in each unit in one handy place? I’d love to order some books through through your affiliate link so that you get a little something out of it for such a lovely little curriculum but I’m having a hard time locating the proper link.

        • Kimara says

          Thanks so much for asking. Actually, never thought of a Listmania but that would be a good idea! In the meantime, on each of the curriculum's overview page, you will find an Amazon box with all the books listed. If you go in through there, we do have an amazon account and we will get credit. If you are doing the winter theme now, the booklist can be found HERE. http://weefolkart.com/content/winter-wonderland-preschoolkindergarten-curriculum 
          Over the next few months we hope to get many of our resources better organized. Our shop will also be opening. We love sharing free content with our readers, but we really do appreciate it when readers enter Amazon from our site. Thanks again for being so thoughtful :)

    This is my first time visiting and boy I wish I had found you several years ago! ZI also wish you went higher than ages 4-6….this site is amazing! Thanks!

  3. Guest says

    any chance you’ll continue to grow your curriculum files? We are at the 4 & 6 age range now and growing with you would be fabulous! :)

  4. sam wilton says

    There are many different guides to be found on the internet regarding the best guides and resources, but to be honest since I found the ones on offer here, I have not been able to find anything that is as well written as the ones offered here. Thanks a lot I am learning something new every day. spielautomaten

    Thank you so much for this great curriculum. My daughter loves it! I have also tried Oak Meadow and A Little Garden Flower and they have their good points too but the activities and books you have outlined here have been by far her favorites. I curious what you used for first grade and beyond – I am struggling to pick something for next year.

  6. Ashley G. says

    We are finishing up our “preschool” year with my now 5-year-old daughter after using all 3 of your curriculums. While starting to map out our summer, I checked your site on the off chance you had added some summer ideas, and I am so excited that you have! Thank you for the wonderful schedules and book lists-they have been everything I could have asked for. When I started looking for a curriculum, my biggest “wants” were that it be season-based and literature-based, include lots of crafting and baking and nature. This is the curriculum I wish I had written myself :) Thanks again-I am looking forward to another season of great books and activities!

    Ladies,
    I loved using your guides with my daughter two years ago, and we’ve started using them again with my son this year. Thank you so much. When we started it was my very first step into homeschooling, and your guides were there to rely on. This year it’s my very first step into homeschooling multiple age groups, and again, your guides are there for me to rely on. And so I am here, with the greatest sincerity, to say Thank You, again.

    I have been searching online for weeks hoping to find that one curriculum that stood out to me and my familys lifestyle. I was just about to give up and put in the many hours it would take to make my own when I stumbled appon your site. I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work, and for making it free! This is truely amazing, I have tears in my eyes. Thank-you from the bottom of my heart!! I can not wait to get started with my little 3 year old daughter jayde!!

  9. Kelly Gonzales says

    I am so excited to get started on this program with my almost 5 year old boy! I was wondering if you had another suggestion for an ABC coloring book besides the Flower Fairy one? I can tell just by looking at it that he will think its for “girls”, LOL.

  10. says

    What a thoughtful, well-put-together, beautiful curriculum! I will definitely be ordering some of the books and doing parts of this with my 2 hs’d kids (7 and 5). No time to fit it all in, but I am very, VERY impressed.

  11. Erin says

    I am beyond blessed to have found your website and this curriculum! I have hunted for something nature-inspired for my daughter with SPD. We are homeschooling her for just this reason, and we want her education to be specifically, geared towards her, not the masses. Thank you, a million times thank you. We’ll be using the curriculum for the remainder of this year for preschool and again for Kindy in the fall. I think the repetition will be wonderful for her :).
    I cannot for the life of me find where the art projects are from, can you explain? I dont want to miss this portion!!!
    Also, do you incorporate any spiritual practices with your kiddos?
    Again. Thank you and bless you!!!!

  12. Mary Jo says

    I am so grateful for the incredible time & effort you invested to make this beautiful resource available! Thank you so very, very much! So excited to use this beautiful curriculum with my 5 and 1 year old boys & have shared this link with many friends. Please post if you add more curriculum…it’s simply wonderful!

    Hi! I am a mother of 4. My 2 oldest children have attended public school their whole lives. My 5 year old (turned 5 in September) has been in a k4 program for 8 weeks and still screams and cries every day. She hates it. I am thinking of bringing her home and home schooling her. I have been a school teacher for the past 11 years and this is my first year being home and not teaching because I am pursuing my PhD. There are so many options out there that it is overwhelming but I love the sound of what you are doing. I DO want her to continue learning the letters and writing that she has been learning at school.
    My main question is – if we start now – as in Monday of next week – where would I “be” in your curriculum? I’d like to see if she can pick up where you are or if we need to back pedal or advance. I’m just not sure what the time frame of your 3 sections is. Could you point me towards the current spot?
    Also – any tips would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks so much, and best of look to you and your family!

      Hi Marie,
      I would suggest starting the Explode the Code books from the beginning and matching your flower fairy poem to the letter you are working on for the week. There are additional teacher guides and flashcards that you can use along side the ETC series if you would like to work more heavily on phonics. As for the Harvest Time weekly themes… you can do those in any order. So pick the ones that make sense with what is available around your home/holidays. If you have cider mills/orchards in your area you might want to start with the apple weeks since that is a very 'now' subject and of course the pumpkins go well with Halloween. So maybe start next week with week 6, followed by week 9 and from there pick and choose what you would enjoy covering based on the projects.

      Good luck and have fun!

    My words just don’t seem adequate. I’ve been wanting to say thank you for some time and have felt the need to find the “right” words to convey how thankful I am that you offer this beautiful program to the public and that you offer it for free. This is my first year “homeschooling” my 4 yr old son who just seems to learn in a non-typical way. Through finding our own home rhythm and this amazing curriculum….and being able to afford it…..my son, who 6 months ago was an angry/insecure/resistant to learning, little person who had BIG emotions…..is absolutely thriving!! I just can’t thank you enough for being a part of our journey to a peaceful home!

  15. Chelsea says

    I was just trying to look at the Harvest Time first edition and it says that the page is not found. Is this guide still available?

    • Kimara says

      Hi Chelsea,

      Yes, it is still available. Just this past week we switched our website over to a new platform. We are still finding a few broken links. I’ve just sent a message off to the powers that be and it should be fixed in the next few hours. Try again later in the day and thanks for bringing this problem to our attention.

    Thank you so much for the updated guides! When I first found your curriculum, I LOVED it, however when trying to “get ready” with my toddler by previewing the books from our library I found lots that were out of print or unavailable to us. This was a huge disappointment since I wanted to use your guides so much! I set out to develop my own curric using yours as a guide but by subbing a lot of books for ones available to me. It was a lot of work, but I finished my outline and began working with my son. Then my daughter was born and I had no idea how I was going to complete it before he turns 4 next year. Lo and behold, you did it for me!!!

    I just purchased the physical and digital copies of Autumn and Winter so that I can get ready for next year. We are all very excited about Spring and Summer now! While I was on the fence about doing your quilting squares, my husband recently suggested I take up quilting as a hobby (I already sew, paint, craft, am a graphic designer by trade, and have an art degree) so your curriculum is going to be launching me into a new hobby as well.

    Please keep up the excellent work you do with your site. It has been (and will continue to be) a treasure for my family.
