Week 1 – The Playful Pioneers Curriculum from The Peaceful Press

After months of research, and after reading one glowing review after another of The Peaceful Press, I decided to change things up a bit this year with our homeschool curriculum and add in The Playful Pioneers curriculum to our studies. The Peaceful Press offers three different curriculum options; I chose to go with The Playful Pioneers – a literature and project-based curriculum for early elementary students – for Miss 8 and Miss 5 (Miss 2 has enjoyed tagging along as well). Week one was a complete success – the girls and I had such a blast and are now thoroughly enjoying week two.

We started reading Farmer Boy, learned about horses, ate homemade popcorn, put together horse puzzles, and fell in love with The Julia Rothman Collection of books.

The girls even set up a playdough/nature scene for the horse figurines they painted.


I have to say, I was pretty sad to say goodbye to summer but this fall themed playdough and new curriculum have made the transition to a new school year a little easier. 🙂 

I love how the curriculum is put together and its gentle approach. The girls (and I) have learned so much already and the best part is that it’s been so fun!
