Based on years of research, Memoria Press is pleased to offer their First Grade Curriculum, the third year of our planned Junior K-12 Classical Core Curriculum. Now your child can have a Highlands Latin education at home using the very same materials our teachers use in our highly acclaimed programs. By following the daily lesson plans in our full-year Curriculum Manual, you will have every tool you need to give your child the very best education possible.
To complete the Literature & Enrichment portion of the curriculum, you will need the weekly read-alouds. These can be purchased in a set from Memoria Press or gathered at the library, or you may already own many of these classic books.
The First Grade Classical Core Curriculum is a complete classical Christian curriculum that emphasizes the traditional liberal arts of language and mathematics and the cultural heritage of the Christian West as expressed in the great works of history and literature. In the curriculum package, Memoria Press has designed and laid out a full year’s plan in a Curriculum Manual that provides day-by-day lesson plans for you the teacher!
Picking up where Kindergarten left off, your first grader will continue to master their phonics, math, reading and handwriting. Along with an enrichment program that explores art, music, and poetry.

“I think the Memoria Press First Grade Curriculum is a great choice for either the beginning homeschooler who needs guidance and structure, and for veteran homeschoolers who have their hands full with older children.” – Angelina
Wonderful, amazing, glorious. This company is the best out there. My child learned so much, and really learned so much more than I even thought. MP is wonderful to work with, will answer any and all questions, and respond super quickly to emails. Wonderful curriculum!
I never ever thought I would ever choose a full curriculum package. But, I would love to share why I believe MP stands out far above other full curriculum packages:
1. I firmly believe that classical education is the most rigorous well rounded type of education. I cannot imagine not instilling a basic understanding of Latin, astronomy, and understanding of Greek and Roman thinking in my children. This being said, I have extreme difficulty finding classical curriculum that is not overtly Pagan. For an example, one textbook wanted my children to build a Pagan temple as soon as they opened the textbook. The lack of discernment is almost always evident in classical education. For an example, I often find that Classical schools and curriculum have middle and high school students reading Mein Kampf and Communist Manifesto. I am appalled that educators would put this garbage in the minds of children. While studying history is important, putting children inside the mind of Hitler or Karl Marx is exceedingly dangerous. Memoria Press is the only Classical Education curriculum developers I have found who clearly exercise great discernment and provide an education that does not disturb me, as a Christian educator.
2. I LOVE the quality literature approach to education.
3. Children learn to read with pure phonics. You won’t find the disturbing word recognition approach used by public schools here.
4. Charlotte Mason’s influence is overtly obvious in this curriculum. The short lessons, high quality literature, copy work, narration, and nature walks makes this curriculum a hit for my family.
I firmly believe that MP is the absolute best! I am so pleased to find my love of Classical Education, Christianity, Charlotte Mason, and quality classic literature all wrapped up in one beautiful package!
I love the first grade package! The reading books they have picked out are excellent quality inside and out. Our family enjoys doing the art cards and music lessons around the dinner table. My husband and I love them just as much as the kiddos do. There is so much material here, but it isn’t overwhelming. Memoria really has an organized way of doing things.
