Schedule Updates 2021

2-8-2021
We have finally finished ALL of our our big yearly link checks and the needed updates of the printable and online schedules for this year.

In our big yearly updates we update/fix any broken links and sometimes add or replace books when they’ve gone out of print, add or remove activities and videos, create new features, etc. to make our curriculum even better!

On this page you can see which curriculums have been updated and what updates were made.

You can also check the online schedule pages for updates made after our big yearly update. We’ll post updates as we make them on the online schedule landing pages, so you can always know if your printable schedule is totally up-to-date or not and what has been changed, fixed, or updated.
