Sample Schedules

Curiosity Chronicles is designed to be scalable and adaptable. You can pick and choose which parts of the curriculum to do and scale the difficulty of reading and activities to your students' needs. This adaptability makes Curiosity Chronicles a popular choice for family with multiple children learning together and families with neurodivergent learners. 

If you're unsure what this might look like, check out our sample schedules below.
