WHAT WE DO
Build-A-Project creates customized, hands-on projects and curriculum for students and programs. After discussing the needs, goals and interests of each child with the parent, I create a project just for them! All projects include several content areas, activities, research, and creativity, all based on your child. Projects will fit your child's needs all while helping cultivate your child's creativity and knowledge.
HOW WE DO IT
Discuss project with parent and student.
Review learning plan for student.
Determine which content areas will be implemented in the project.
Consultant will create a project kit specific for student.
Determine learning components, activities and concepts which will be implemented.
FOLLOW UP AND SUPPORT
After the first session, a consultant will deliver and review the project kit and how to implement it. We will be available for questions through phone and email. We will also regularly follow-up and be readily available to determine the status of the project and answer any questions you may have.
WHY WE DO IT
I believe in a hands-on and interactive approach to education. I want to provide a way for students to be involved in education, not just observe it. Students should feel passionate about what they're learning. Projects are a great way to help students learn and most importantly, retain information in the way that they learn, not everyone else. Typically, projects include various content areas to reach the main objectives and/or standards. In one, comprehensive project, we can include history, writing, math, science, and art. When working on a project, students are researching, working on various activities and mini projects which all help retain information and apply it. Moreover, when students reteach the content through explanation, presentations, and applying information, they are even more likely to retain information.

WHAT OUR FAMILIES SAY
MICHAEL AND LINDA
2 Children, Grades 4TH & 1ST
"My husband and I are thoroughly
impressed by Build-A-Project.
Nancy worked with us from start to finish to create projects perfectly suited for our two homeschooled boys, grades 4 and 1. The projects are amazing, and not only help us focus on meeting and exceeding educational standards, but delight and challenge our two young learners. We are extremely impressed and are very glad we found Nancy, and would definitely recommend Build-A-Project to other parents and educators."

4 Children, Grades 6th, 5th, 3rd & 1st
Nancy at Build-A-Project has been a pleasure to work with in building my children's curriculum. We have 4 kids in 1st, 3rd, 5th and 6th grade and I asked Nancy to complete the very difficult task of creating a social studies curriculum that I could use for all 4 children. She was able to make an amazing course that we used the whole school year which included geography, states and capitals, and government. There were not only daily guides for each lesson, but also multiple resources for games, worksheets, activities, and projects which were grade appropriate. This allowed me to be able to teach to each child's grade level in an engaging method. The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed using the social studies curriculum that was individualized for our family and I highly recommend using Build-A- Project to every family for a personalized, high quality educational program.
2 Children, Grades 3rd & 4th
Our family absolutely loved our customized geography curriculum developed by Nancy! She listened carefully to our specific curriculum needs and developed a product that was enriching, informative and tons of fun! The kids enjoyed the assignment, project and tools Nancy provided and learned and and retained the information! We would recommend Nancy and Build-A-Project to any family looking for that "perfect curriculum."
