 I got to go to Books A Million last night and was in love with their school section. They had so much cool stuff. While looking I ran across some books called the Core Knowledge Series. What your _ grader needs to know. Here is the link: http://books.coreknowledge.org/home.php?cat=298

Has anyone heard of these?  And what are your thougths?

 Yes, they are very helpful. I use parts of the book for our studies. I still need to get the one for 6th grade.

I know of people using these for their main homeschooling books. Personally, I found them to be interesting but not something to buy. I researched the core knowledge path and I thought it looked really good. If I were you, I'd look them up in a library because it seems most libraries have a least a couple in the series.

Here is the website I used to create lessons based on the Core Knowledge philosophy. http://www.cstone.net/~bcp/BCPIntro2.htm

Here are some free resources including the complete sequence year by year guides: http://books.coreknowledge.org/home.php?cat=314

I only bought K & 1st because I got them for $2 each at a used bookstore.  They're helpful and I agree with a PP that many libraries carry them.

Thanks for the links, I will check them out. Books a million is a bookstore like barnes and noble.

OMG!  I just looked at these online and they would be perfect for making my own curriculum!  We just got a BAM store (it replaced our Borders that went out of business) so I will be heading over there later to see if I can find one of these!
