KONOS Kids (Grades 4-6) can only be described as learning made fun. With engaging and interactive teachers, even students who have experienced only at-home learning soon find themselves enjoying their days at school, discussing what they've learned in class, and making forever friends.
After children receive at-home, informal character training and basic reading and writing skills (from grades K-3), they are ready for a more structured program. This program is for children who can read and can relate well within a small group of other students. Norma Jacobson and Holly Hampton provide a weekly structure for the family’s at-home schooling. In class they meet to account for assignments, do exciting hands-on activities, and interact around KONOS units (science, history, geography, art, music, literature, writing, grammar/spelling/vocabulary, Bible).
KONOS Kids follows the KONOS Curriculum unit studies, integrating science, social studies, art, music, literature, language arts, and Bible. The day is full of content and related hands-on activities.
"KONOS has been a lifesaver for me! It relieved me of hours of lesson-planning, and my girls are studying subjects that I would never have been able to include in our studies otherwise. KONOS gives our home-schooling the added structure that it needed and still allows the flexibility that I love!"
C.M., KONOS KIDS mother
"I love how your method of unit study and Christian character training comes together. I rave about it to
anyone that asks. I know (my son) has learned a lot in so many areas. It has also assisted me in the transformation of his character."
