For kindergarten I chose the Around the World curriculum from Build Your Library. It was the perfect fit. There was plenty of flexibility to explore my son’s interests in animals, geography, and food! The Magic Tree House series turned out to be an excellent supplement.

This series is a great way to introduce chapter books to young readers. I had great success reading these with my former 1st graders, and my current kindergartner absolutely loves them. We’ve made it through about 50 of the 55 books in the original series this year, and he still can’t get enough!

I did quite a bit of leg work figuring which books fit in with our lesson plans. I’ve compiled that all here together in a few easy-to-read world maps. I’m so excited to share it here, free with my readers! Click here or on the image below.
