What can I expect to find in The Kingdom Code?
The Kingdom Code is a cross-curricular program that encompasses economics, history, math, art, writing, and the Bible. It teaches beyond the Three R's. The program develops students' social and interpersonal skills through the hands-on life experiences they gain in the businesses they create and operate. Many supplemental projects (Bonus Code Work in the text and Suggested Enrichment within the Teacher's Guide) provide fun opportunities to incorporate additional social and educational skills for students to practice. An easy-to-follow budget is also presented to promote successful money management and a debt-free future.
How much time does the program take?
The program contains 34 weeks' of work (27 lessons divided into 68 days), or one school year of instruction. Contact us online or send us a direct email to 'firstname.lastname@example.org' for ideas of how to make a schedule that works for you. This program is meant to be flexible in order to suit each school's, family's, or church's needs. If you take this curriculum and go at your own pace, you can easily mark your place in the Teacher's Guide and continue the next session when time permits. Make it your own!
What do I need to make the program work?
You need a Complete Starter Kit or a Student Starter Kit to begin teaching. The Complete Starter Kit includes the Student Starter Kit plus the Teacher's Guide. (The Complete Starter Kit is highly recommended.) For each student, the following supplies will be needed to begin:
- (3) - 1 inch 3-ring binder with clear sleeves on front and back
- (1) – set of 5 divider tabs labeled in this order:
- Current Work
- Treasure Builder 1
The following additional items will be used later in the program, but may be purchased in the beginning for assembly. Note: If you assemble them, the following will need to be gathered and redistributed in Lessons 7, 8, or 13.
- (1) folder with brads and pockets
- (1) red pencil
- (6) zippered pencil pockets with clear plastic fronts and metal zippers
- (1) quart-size clear, sealable bag (or container) to hold 2” x 3” flash cards

FAQ - How Do I Get Organized Before Teaching?
Do I need the Student Packet?
Yes, the Student Packet contains all consumables necessary for one student. It contains: Activities, Forms, Notices, Worksheets, Flash cards, two posters, the KCK Treasure Map, two sticker pages, and a receipt book. It does not include the textbook. Note: A Student Packet is included in each Complete Starter Kit and each Student Starter Kit.
What is the difference between the Complete Starter Kit and the Student Starter Kit?
The Complete Starter Kit includes a Teacher's Guide, whereas, the Student Starter Kit does not.
How are history and the Bible covered in the curriculum?
The Kingdom Code enhances lessons with historical facts and historical fiction that help highlight concepts within the lessons. The study of entrepreneurs, transportation changes, and technological advances are just a few of the topics presented to promote understanding of economics and free enterprise.
Bible verses are always in the Code of Honor section to foster character development and substantiate the lesson's Character Code. Discussions of particular Bible passages and Biblical characters are interspersed throughout the text. Students are often reminded of the wisdom and lessons to be learned from God's Word.
Would The Kingdom Code work for a family with different ages of students?
The Kingdom Code is written at a fourth grade reading level, but the concepts are the same for everyone. A family could easily adapt this program to teach multiple ages at one time, each student building their own businesses, or working as a family and starting a family business.
