The Kingdom Code Complete Starter Kit Review
I’m going to talk a little bit about the curriculum and then I’m going to talk about what we have done with it because I am excited about both!
Included in the set is:
- The Kingdom Code Textbook
- Activities, Forms, & Notices
- Teacher’s Guide
- TKC Treasure Map
- Flash Cards
- 2 Pages of Stickers
- KCK Budget Stickers
- KCK Receipt Books
There is a lot included. My favorite was the full color textbook full of information and activities. It guides the student through the process of starting an ethical functioning business that makes money. It talks about supply and demand which is a very important concept in business. We have learned all about it in our quest. I like that this book teaches real business principles but in ways that kids can understand. I think I learned a good deal from this curriculum too. We learned about writing a business plan and keeping things orderly. There is a set of worksheets that go with the textbook that ask questions and ensure they are paying attention and learning as we read.
There is a teachers guide that has all you need to teach the curriculum and how to set it up. It was very useful in getting all the books set up right because there is a LOT of information and tools to use. I am beginning to see the benefit of teacher guides. I used to set them on the shelf and ignore them but lately I have actually been using them and now I realize why they exist. The teachers guide also has information on how to fill out the different forms and things.
Another part of the KCK book is informational pages that teach kids how to make actual sells. I personally have trouble making cold calls. I don’t do sales well. I think in my business plan I need to address that I do have a weakness in that area. My son is just like me, he too has a more shy reserved personality. My daughters, however, do not have that problem. We decided to play to our strengths with my daughters being the salespeople. My oldest found a mentor in her aunt. They have been working together to make sales.
Another lesson they are learning is how to separate their money. We have our budget book with has five folders in it. Each is tied to a different letter in the KCK budget plan. J is for Jesus, O is for Others, E is for Education, Y is for Yourself, and S is for Savings. They learn how to separate out the money they have made by using these envelopes.
This receipt book has come in quite handy with our business. We have used a few of them to properly document our sells. I’ll tell you more about our business in just a minute.
We were also able to review the TKC Coloring Book. This is a fun coloring book with knights and Bible verses. They also learn the basics of the KCK budget plan. I like the art with it’s simple lines. It looks similar to what I would make which is probably why I like it so much! And the JR KCK Budget Kit which is a basic kit for teaching about budgeting without the full business plan. It would be a great intro to budgets and planning.
So now I am going to talk about our business. We actually started a full blown business and I am shocked that we did that. It’s been crazy the last few weeks. If you have noticed things have been a little quiet around here. This is why. We have all worked together. We even made a website for it. I have always lived by the saying “If you are going to do something, do it right”. So we went all in. We bought a vinyl machine and some products. We all learned how to use the machine and apply the vinyl. The kids have been fully invested in this venture. It has been fun and we have actually made a few local sales. I’m quite proud of them. The kids come up with the designs and plan out the advertising. They will even be planning a craft show coming up. I think being an entrepreneur is in their blood.
So keep them in mind if you ever need a shirt or cup let them know!
