frequently asked questions

WHEN SHOULD WE BEGIN THE TRACKERS PROGRAM?

You can begin Trackers at any time (as in, it's not constrained to any rigid seasonal calendar). Holiday lessons are available digitally, and those can be interjected into the curriculum as they arise. Simply pause the lesson flow and pick back up on the other side of the holiday.

WHAT AGE RANGE DOES THE CURRICULUM COVER?

Trackers was written with K-6th grades in mind, but adapted preschool lessons are available upon request at no additional charge when the primary curriculum is purchased. In our testing of the curriculum, preschool students engage really well with the videos and characters. 

WHAT’S THE SCOPE AND SEQUENCE?

IS THIS A VIDEO BASED CURRICULUM?

There's a short (3-5 minute) video that accompanies each of the core lessons (no video for the 12 supplemental holiday lessons that round out the year). The lessons don't depend on the video for the core teaching, but it's a really strong aspect of the design and context of the way the curriculum is framed.

HOW DO HOLIDAYS WORK?

There are 40 core lessons in each year. To complete a 52-week year, we’ve created optional holiday lessons that are available on the digital hub. These include:

  • Thanksgiving
  • Advent (four lessons)
  • Valentine’s Day
  • St. Patrick’s Day
  • Ash Wednesday/first Sunday of Lent
  • Palm Sunday
  • Easter
  • Mother’s Day
  • Father’s Day
CAN TRACKERS BE USED IN A HOMESCHOOL SETTING?

YES! The author actually used it herself as she homeschooled her own children. While the scripted lesson is written for a group, it’s easily modified for one-on-one environments. It has also been used successfully in homeschool group meetings.
