The Noah Plan® First Grade Essentials

Using the The Noah Plan® First Grade curriculum in your homeschool? Excellent! You’ll appreciate having this handy list of essentials that you’ll need for it. In this way, you’re not surprised that you’ll need a few more books than the curriculum itself. While the curriculum lists what’s needed, it’s super helpful to know while you’re already making your purchase. While everything is listed, I’m sharing the books in bold that I found were enough for me in my second year.

The Essential First Grade Book List Other Subjects

  • French Primer, Mes Premiers Pas de Français by F.A.C.E. Of note, these are coloring pages with French words and sentence. Plus, it comes with an audio CD for pronunciation.
  • Phonemic Awareness in Young Children: A Classroom Curriculum. I didn’t bother with this one (probably because of our budget at the time). And the curriculum we use works well for us so I haven’t felt the need to buy it…
  • Right Start Mathematics. We started out with this and love it. However, I needed help time-wise teaching a subject with so many various levels among our 6 school-aged children and we are now using CTC Math(affiliate link) and love it! The lessons are short and concise, the kids can re-take lessons and tests as needed individually, it is not in line with common core, it keeps track of individual student’s records which are printable, and it grades lessons and tests automatically. This has been a huge blessing for me and our kids! Plus, I can teach the Bible principles in math to them just the same.
  • Starter Kit, Spalding Education International. I have it and struggled so much with the way it is formatted. Thankfully someone introduced me to Spell to Write and Read by Wanda Sanseri. It’s based off of Spalding’s book but so simplified. I absolutely love it.
  • Stone Bridge Art Guide
