BYOL - am I missing something? in K-8 Curriculum Board Posted April 22, 2018 · Report reply We have only done a BYL unit study so far, but it has been so wildly successful for our family that we're switching over to BYL next year for our history/lit/science. And in the unit study, at least, there are several activities and projects included, so it's not just a list/schedule. The BYL site has detailed lists of what is included in each level. For example, level two includes a daily and weekly schedule for 36 weeks of study reading list a set of 6 – 8 narration cards vocabulary words, discussion questions and copywork passages all tied to the literature readings poetry memorization timeline figures research projects 22 activity pages (including mapwork) science lessons and 34 science activity pages art projects (copied from BYL site) It's well worth it to me. Actually, since most of the books are available at the local library, this is going to be pretty inexpensive for us to implement. :) My biggest problem is the kids fighting over who gets to sit next to me on the couch while we do read-alouds. :D No, that's not really a problem....I'm relishing it because I know that it won't be long until they want to be anywhere but next to me!
