A Child’s World – First Grade Curriculum



Embrace the strong and independent learner that your child is becoming with A Child’s World First Grade Curriculum!

You’ve played and explored through the Pre-K/Kindergarten years, and now it’s time to move on to something bigger! 

At this age, your child is slowly moving out of the completely “me-focused” emotional understanding to wondering how they fit into the world around them.

With that developmental path in mind, I’ve designed the first grade curriculum to allow your child to work through, understand, and develop their sense of how their unique selves fit into the world around them on multiple levels.

You will find nine unique themes designed around the idea of helping your child discover how they, as a unique individual with special gifts and talents, fit into the bigger world around them. Each theme has enough material to last through at least a month of exploration and fun!

Inside each of the unique themes, you’ll see all subject areas represented, similar to the Pre-K/K Curriculum – recommended reading lists, literacy lessons, math connections, science experiments, art, nature, etc. Additionally, each of the themes themselves have an overall academic area focus.

You can confidently trust that every necessary skill that your child should know at this stage will be covered in a hands-on way that supports natural, meaningful learning. No supplements are needed and the content in this curriculum will pass every state’s standards in the United States, meaning you don’t ever have to worry about missing a thing.



These nine, comprehensive and cross-curricular themes will give you flexibility to choose the sequence in which you teach them, giving you the ability to follow your child’s interests and needs:

  • “My Body” – Focus on Health and Diet

  • “My World” – Focus on Geography

  • “My Creative Self” – Focus on Self-Expression, Art & Music

  • “My Backyard” – Focus on Nearby Nature and Local Wildlife

  • “My Family” – Focus on Individual History

  • “My Time” – Focus on Understanding of Time/Days

  • “My Feelings” – Focus on Emotions

  • “My Animal Friends” – Focus on Pets and Animal Connections

  • “My Neighborhood” – Focus on Community


This one-of-a-kind signature program is designed to harness your child’s natural sense of wonder and curiosity for their world, give you an endless supply of activities to put together based on your child’s interests, and encourage imaginative, playful interactions with nature to help your child develop a true love and appreciation for our Mother Earth.

Inside, you’ll find…

 What Parents Have Said

This curriculum is beyond amazing. I recently opened my own private school and I only wish I had bought it earlier. It makes lesson planning so easy. I just pick which activities I want to do with the kids that week and plug them into our plans. I love how things are themed but so interconnected with academic learning. For example, Leah’s first theme is the Human Body. She makes sure to organize to curriculum so that everything relates back to that. Even when you get to the Nature Adventures section, she has the kids doing things like measuring your own wingspan. As a former public school teacher, I really love how she makes sure everything is fun, engaging, and hands on! Thank you, Leah! I am so glad I purchased both the 1st grade and the Kindergarten ones you offer!

– Iman Alleyn, Private School Owner, Mother

“This curriculum has everything I was looking for: natural learning based, divided into units, all hands on (no boring worksheets or workbooks!), encourages a child’s natural curiosity and desire to learn, and covers all the subject areas! As a former kindergarten teacher who has seen first hand the detrimental effects of mainstream, public schooling I was determined to choose a different way of schooling for my child. I was not comfortable enough to go full on “unschooling” but this curriculum is a great compromise between the two extremes! It meets my needs for “structure” and having specific things to cover, but also meets her needs for engaging, hands on, real life learning. I can’t recommend this program, and all that it comes with, enough!”
