Download N Go - Homeschool Curriculum Review

Recently I was approached to do a review/blog tour for Download N Go. I wasn't familiar with this curriculum before, but the concept of downloadable curriculum for unit studies was very appealing to me. So, I signed up and was delighted when a few weeks ago I received my Download N Go unit on wales.

I loved it! First of all, it was extremely easy to save and download. No computer mumbo jumbo that was difficult to understand. Secondly, the content was clear and child-friendly. There was plenty of color and up to date graphics. It's clear someone took great thought to create something that my 4-8 year old student would be happy to dive into. Thirdly, it's a unit study so there are various subjects covered, from art projects and Bible stories to reading and writing activities...Download N Go covers it all. There are also hyperlinks throughout the curriculum so if you decide never to print it out you still have computer generated reasons to follow the links to more valuable information.

At the end of the week they give you precise directions on how to design a lapbook with all the things your child has created during the unit study. There are extra hyperlinks with tutorials to show beginner lapbooking teachers how to assemble the book.

Overall, I'd give this two thumbs up!

I always see these on The Old Schoolhouse, but never tried them. Thanks! I might have to check one out.

Gina,

Sounds like a great way to incorporate learning about computers and learning something fun for our kids.

Gina,

Please help me spread the word of a sister in Christ who so desperately needs help with a limited amount of time left.
