What It Looks Like
Beautiful Feet presents a nurturing approach to learning. By choosing the best books available we help your family experience the enjoyment of learning history through literature.
Reading aloud will show your children the value in reading and learning, and the time spent together will strengthen healthy intellectual, emotional, and spiritual connections. By removing the rote memorization and busywork from this subject, your family is free to enjoy the great stories that make up history itself. Not only will your children have a solid understanding of the subject, they will develop a love of learning that is far more valuable. Imagine learning together, as a family. Our studies easily span multiple grade levels with our read-aloud approach. Our comprehension and discussion questions will prompt your students to connect with the characters found in each story. Notebooking, coloring, map and copy work, web links, and writing assignments, when age-appropriate, will further reinforce the subject. Our History Through Literature Study Guides outline each course in easy-to-follow lessons while giving you flexibility to add or subtract as needed. This customizable style gives you the freedom to use our studies how you want. If you have an advanced reader then add some of our supplemental literature recommendations. If you have a delayed reader then focus on spending more time reading aloud together. Typically, as your children enter junior high and high school they will begin to work more independently. At this stage our studies focus less on comprehension and more on analysis. We do include an answer key for the comprehension questions but the discussion and writing components of our studies increase in importance. Transform your homeschool by trying our academically-strong studies while taking a more nurturing approach. To read why thousands of families love our history studies click here.
