CHC Daily Lesson Plans for Grades PreK–8 CHC Lesson Plans offer detailed guidance along with flexibility! Public schools, private schools, and very structured home study schools often tailor the family to fit the studies; CHC Lesson Plans give parents the freedom to tailor the studies to fit the family. Thanks to the clarity of the weekly guides and daily plans, lessons can instantly be pared down to an academically excellent core in times of family overload, or expanded with enrichment activities and electives to fit the family budget and student’s interests. From Preschool to Fourth Grade, CHC lesson plans are based on a four-day week, with Wednesdays left open. This weekly “flex-day” can be used for extra-curricular activities, Mass attendance, or appointments. The student’s work load gradually increases in the middle school years, so beginning in Fifth Grade, CHC lesson plans follow a five-day week. Each lesson plan includes: • Scope and sequence for the year • Subject guide • Typical Course of Study • Weekly goals and checklists • Daily lesson plans on a two-page-per-week grid • Achievement record and certificate Daily lesson plans for PreK–8th grades. 102–180 pages each. Loose-leaf, 3-hole drilled. See pages 8–17 for more details. LP $28.95
“I AM just so amazed at how BEAUTIFUL all your materials are for all of your subjects! Beauty and Catholicism are the environment in which I want my children to grow and learn! And the best part is that I get to learn right alongside them! God bless you!” —Jane, VA
