Over 25 engagings family unit studies and growing!
I’ve bought a few of your unit studies and love the way you’ve compiled things and the ways you provide options for learning extensions. I run a licensed family daycare and feel like I’m able to add an extra level of quality and engagement to what I offer to families, thanks to your inspiration.
Just wanted to share with you how much fun we’re having with the human body unit study. My 5 yo was able to correct his buddy from down the street about what your rib cage is and what organ it protects and what its function is!! My 13 yo is my teaching assistant this year and she’s even enjoying them! Although, don’t tell her that - she’s too cool for this little kid stuff 🙄😁😂 (The Human Body)
Your unit gets to the point and is in a language kids will actually connect with! AND it’s not full of write a paragraph, write, write, write and more writing! (Reptiles)
I am currently using this for our homeschool unit on dinosaurs. It involves little to no preparation, which is a plus with a toddler around. It is very engaging and hands on which I love, and it keeps my five year old engaged with room to grow into should we pull it out in future years. He looks forward to this daily. (Dinosaurs)
I used this resource when I home schooled my nephews. They both loved all the things that we learned about dinosaurs! It had so many great learning activities that were hands on and engaging. (Dinosaurs)
My students love rocks and they loved this resource. I have these Geodes that were just waiting to be broken and this allowed us to learn about them while we broke them. The kids had awesome day. (Rocks & Gems)
As a homeschool mom I have used many of the resources from How Wee Learn. I find them to be fun and engaging, so try well thought out information and activities. I can see us using these for years to come! (Exploring Rainforests)

What about math and literacy core skills?
I encourage you to add in core skills when using unit studies. A solid foundation in literacy and numeracy will benefit your child immensely. About 30 minutes a day spent on reading, writing, and math (30 minutes total) complements these unit studies perfectly. Of course, this is optional and depends on your personal view of education.
With my own children, we cover our math and literacy core skills in the morning then dive into a Family Unit Study in the afternoon. I offer Math and Literacy Grade School Curriculum that perfectly complement the Family Unit Studies
