What is The Earth*School Curriculum?
Earth*School is a specially designed curriculum for homeschooling families, and can be used with one child or many children. The activities in the Earth*School curriculum are suited for a wide range of ages. Young toddlers will enjoy the art activities right along side their older siblings. The recommended stories can be shared with toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners, but are also great for cuddling up and reading aloud to your older child. The cooking activities will readily be enjoyed by all members of your family, regardless of age! The Earth*School Curriculum is divided up by activity type. It includes original songs and movement activities, set to familiar tunes. Other areas included in each unit are science, math, nature table crafts, creative art,language, recommended books and places to go and people to see. There are six original activities to be found for each area, unless otherwise specified.

Who Writes The Earth*School Curriculum?
The Earth*School Curriculum is written entirely by me, Bonnie Vontz, of Holden's Landing. I am the work at home mom (WAHM) of two children (8.00 and 2.04). Before becoming a stay at home mom, I was the director of an early childhood education center and the Kindergarten teacher for 7+ years. I have also taught and cared for children from birth to the PreKindergarten age. I was trained as an early childhood and elementary education teacher. I have also been a freelance curriculum writer for over 15 years, and have seen my work published in magazines and books.
