This product was developed as a deliverable when I completed my doctorate degree in education. This is a complete course that was designed originally for fathers to complete with students. This course however can be used to help any of your students for any academic level in the classroom; your approaching, on level, and advanced students. This course covers ORGANISMS AND ENVIRONMENTS and PERSONAL FINANCIAL LITERACY. The course covers material from kindergarten through 5th grade. The course follows a Understanding by Design (UBD) model and it is vertically aligned. The material begins with material from kindergarten and advances to material in 5th grade. It is not presented in a way that 5th graders would need to skip pages in order to reach their level. Starting from the very beginning will provide them with the necessary background to move on to the next level. A beautiful thing about this course is that it includes a manual with correct answers, FAQs, and common misconceptions that students may have. It is a workbook that students can write in, and as long as students are able to read, they will be able to work in this workbook INDEPENDENTLY. Due to the fact that this course was designed to be administered by volunteers in a parent education program for a school, one had to consider that fathers are not certified teachers, so the information must be given in a way that is easy to understand, covers critical vocabulary, and students can work independently on the tasks. Characters in the workbook tell the course as they share their stories and experiences with the students. Its very kid friendly and will make an excellent resource as a station or in small groups. The workbook also includes state standards that can be referenced.
