About

BookShark started in 2014, offering our literature-based curriculum to both charter schools and homeschool families. We served 35 charter schools our first year and serve well over 150 today. We attribute our growth to our outstanding curriculum and world class customer support.

BookShark Curriculum

BookShark is a complete, literature-based homeschool curriculum developed for students from pre-k through high school. Our curriculum uses a variety of educational resources including literary fiction and nonfiction, biographies, illustrations, and hands-on experiments to deliver an engaging and complete education that extends beyond textbook memorization. By providing multiple resource books and literature, students learn from a variety of viewpoints.

Starting with our Level D Reading with History program, Intro to American History, students will enjoy the benefit of interconnected learning. History, Geography, Language Arts, Read-Alouds and Readers are integrated. For example, in Level D, students will meet Paul Revere in a history book, and then encounter him again in a Reader. They will get to know George Washington in a biography, and then see him again through their own imagination as the parent reads aloud Johnny Tremain and Phoebe the Spy. As students learn and discover in this style, they’ll make astonishing connections between the people, places, and events in history.

Easy to Teach

BookShark curriculum is easy for parents to teach. All of the planning and preparation is done so parents and students can enjoy learning together. Every program is scheduled for 4 days each week, leaving the fifth day for sports, field trips, co-op, or other extracurricular activities.
