For School-Based Implementation

If you are in a school system, there are a couple of ways to use the program.  It can be implemented in one classroom, one grade, or K-6 school-wide.  One of the key features of the Core Life program is its flexibility in use.  You can choose to implement just one attribute or all attributes depending on the needs of your classroom, grade, or school.

Simple Implementation:

  • Kindergarten-2nd Grade:  Purchase one packet of activity worksheets that include all the 18 topics for each child — whether that is 5 or 25.  If you want the accompanying lesson plan, you must purchase ONE teaching guide.
  • 3-4th Grade:  You can purchase any of the products identified within each attribute in a quantity consistent with the size of your youth group — whether that is 5 or 25.  You can also purchase any of the topics that you want — whether that is 3 or 5 or all 18 of the attributes.
  • 5-6th Grade:  Feathers Across Time is the book to use for this age group.  Purchase in quantities consistent with the size of your group.   There is also an accompanying teacher’s guide that can be purchased.  Only one is needed.    It might be helpful for you (the adult) to read When Time Warps which corresponds to Feathers Across Time.
