Who we are...

Adsila Kids is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit sister organization of Home CEO Academy, a homeschool company whose resources have been used by over 200,000 families in 106 countries worldwide.   We provide homeschool families and learning pods with fun and easy to implement online project-based learning to boost engagement and enjoyment of learning. 

First Grade Curriculum

First Grade Creators is a low-prep digital project-based curriculum to hone your student's creativity and imagination.  Differentiated levels within each project allow you to teach multiple age groups and levels.  Each project introduces students to concepts within all subjects for a broad, integrated and real-world style of learning.  Supplement with your choice of a core math and phonics program. Implement with your own learning pod or join our online pod to engage with other students on your projects. 

Online Learning Pods

Implement weekly projects with your own learning pod or join our online pod! We introduce creative weekly projects, help students stay on track and provide a venue for sharing projects with other students. 

Language and Math

Key language and math practice is embedded within all projects, but you will want to supplement Adsila Kids projects with a core math and language curriculum.

Science and Social Studies

Our projects cover a wide variety of topics including geography, economics, life and physical sciences.  Additional supplementation is optional. 

Social and Emotional Skills

Embedded within our projects are opportunities for students to recognize and practice self-awareness, decision-making, relationship, social awareness and self-management skills.

New to Project-Based Learning

Implementing PBL can be challenging if you're new to it or managing a busy schedule.  Our online version simplifies prep, helps students be more independent and uses simple materials from around the house.  

Busy Schedule or Working Parents

If you're juggling a dual role of career and homeschool educator, digital content delivery simplifies your prep work dramatically.  We strive to keep any supplemental printing to 5 pages or less per week.  

Homeschooling Multiple Years

Our projects are designed with varying levels in mind so you can implement projects with your advanced kindergartener or your fifth grader and anywhere in between.
