Meet the Creator of Literary Adventures for Kids

Hi, I'm Dachelle! I am the owner of Literary Adventures for Kids and I want to help you to teach high school literature in a way that is easy for you and fun for your teen.

Don't let the idea of teaching high school intimidate you.

We've done all the work for you!

Let us help you teach Language Arts!

This literature course covers all you need for 1 1/2 high school language arts credits. Your student will study literature, literary elements, grammar, and writing.

And the best part?

You don't have to do a thing! It's all done for you!

Don't panic about teaching high school!

Our course provides an entire year's worth of language arts curriculum that teaches all the elements you need for a successful year. You don't have to do any of the work. It's all done for you.

Don't spend a fortune on an expensive language arts curriculum your teen hates.

So many language arts courses cost hundreds of dollars, and at the end of the day, everyone is frustrated and ready to throw the book out the window. Our course is inexpensive and fun. (Plus, you can't really throw an online course through the window.)

Don't fight the battle of trying to teach the classics to your teen.

Seriously, I've been there. The struggle is real. But you don't have to fight the battle because your teen is going to enjoy this course. Even if Banned Books aren't their cup of tea, they will start on a new adventure that will broaden their minds and experiences.

Frequently Asked Questions

What ages of children is the book club series for?

The books have topics and activities that would be appropriate for high school.

What supplies will we need?

You will need the books listed in the Book List section of the course. You may also want a notebook for notes and vocabulary. The project supply lists are provided at the beginning of each course. You may choose which projects you will want to do.

What are the dates of the book club?

This is a self-paced course. There are no starting or ending dates. Feel free to use at your leisure.

How long do I have access to the course?

After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own for the lifetime of Literary Adventures for Kids.

How long should this course take?

The book clubs are set up on a lesson-by-lesson basis. It can take as much or as little time as you and your child feel you want to spend. That said, the original design is for 12 months of literature study. However, I recommend you choose which projects will be a good fit for your child and not feel obligated to complete all lessons.

Can my child work independently?

Yes, this course is designed for children to complete mostly independently. However, there are parent notes throughout for projects and videos. I recommend parents review the course before their children begin.

Can this be used for more than one child or as a family course?

Absolutely! We are a homeschooling family, and we encourage all our children to participate in book clubs. Often we will read the book together as a family read-aloud and then work through the rabbit trails and magic dust together.

Can this be used in a co-op setting?

Yes. Please contact me at [email protected] for information about school and co-op licensing.

What if I have questions or need help?

You can contact me at [email protected] and I will answer you as soon as possible.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We understand that not every book or course is the perfect fit. Due to the digital nature of this product, we are limited in how long we can offer a refund. If you don't find that the course fits for your family, please let us know within 5 days of purchase for a full refund. After that time, we will not be able to offer a full refund.
