The Good And The Beautiful Review || Level 6 Language Arts

You may have seen that we have been using The Good And The Beautiful curriculum in our homeschool for a little while now. My son uses and loves Sonlight and hopes to use their curriculum through high school. But my girls, especially the older ones, have been craving a little something different.

After searching and researching, I came across The Good And The Beautiful and knew we had found a good fit. Jenny Phillips, the author of the curriculum, offers their Language Arts levels K through 5 completely free on the website. You can go and download all 6 levels of Language Arts and are free to peruse them all or use them as your Language Arts for your homeschool year. What a blessing!

Jenny did graciously send us a hard copy of the Language Arts Level 6 for review, but my opinions are honest and my own, and not swayed by popular opinion.

My oldest daughter is entering seventh grade and tested into Level 6. The levels of TGATB do not correspond to grade levels, so you need to make sure your children take the placement test.

She is beyond thrilled with this new curriculum. She loves that there is a Daily Checklist for her and checkboxes she can check when she completes a subject. The literature has been at just the right level for her, and she has been looking forward to many of the books on the suggested Book List.

We both love how much content is included. This is not your typical Language Arts curriculum! Check out my unboxing video and you’ll be amazed at all the subjects included in their Language Arts!


Beautiful, right?

Even though we were pretty much finished with our school year, my daughter decided she didn’t want to stop…and even wanted to start using The Good And The Beautiful now and go through the summer! I’m not sure that will continue through the whole summer, but we will enjoy it while it lasts. That is part of the beauty of homeschooling!

I shared my thoughts so far on The Good And The Beautiful in the video below, as well as addressed some of the controversy that seems to surround this curriculum right now. Make sure you watch it and leave a comment letting me know your thoughts!




I also wanted to give you an even closer look inside the curriculum, so we took you on a lesson with us! This is my oldest daughter, using The Good And The Beautiful Level 6. We show you a complete lesson in Language Arts as well as Handwriting and some reading.




Fun, right?

I hope you can see for yourself was a beautiful curriculum this is. Jenny put so much thought and time and effort into developing a curriculum that is truly one of a kind.

Don’t forget to use the placement test for your children and download the Language Arts for free! If you have any questions and want to see more videos, I’m happy to answer them on my channel!


Take a peek inside The Good and The Beautiful with us! We are using Level6 Language Arts and sharing how we complete our daily lessons. I'm also sharing thoughts on all the chatter surrounding this homeschool curriculum. #homeschool #thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschoolcurriculum

    We’ve been using it for awhile. We are also LDS and know Jenny Phillips. I am grateful to have such an uplifting, as well as educational curriculum!

    I plan to use TGATB this year, so I’m happy to see such encouraging reviews! I need level 3 and level k for LA for my kids.

    I do not currently homeschool, but it is definitely something that I am considering for when my youngest gets ready to start school! Thank you for this awesome review!

    Thank you soooo much for your very detailed videos! I’m looking at this level for my almost 7th grade daughter for next fall and this was beyond helpful. Your daughter is just precious and reminds me of mine. She absolutely loves art and reading so this should be a perfect fit. I’ve done several very independent curricula the last few years, so that will be different for us. But I really wanted more beauty in her schoolwork (and all of my kids’).

    Thank you! How long does it usually take to get through a lesson each day?

      At this level, it takes around 30-45 minutes a day. The days vary.
