CHC's curriculum for First Grade distinguishes between core and non-core subjects. Core subjects are the "basic essentials" of education for a particular grade, such as reading, science, and religion. Non-core subjects, such as art and music, can be added as time, interest, and finances allow. Visit the First Grade Interactive Guide to take a subject-by-subject tour of core and non-core materials, including printable sample pages that can be used to determine grade placement!
The First Grade Core Kit includes all the core materials for First Grade except for math, which can be purchased more affordably from other sources. The recommended math kit is listed below along with information on where to purchase it.
