If you've looked into homeschool curriculums for even a short while, you've probably encountered the name Rod and Staff. Or, you may have seen the materials at a homeschool curriculum fair, but didn't look closely because the materials looked very simple. On closer look, however, you will see that the publishers want the Rod and Staff homeschool curriculum to be simple to follow, and simple to use.
Rod and Staff Publishers was founded in 1958 as Pilgrim Mennonite Press. Their purpose is to provide Christian homes and schools with Bible based textbooks and literature. Their goal is to use these educational materials to impart truth, without compromising the Word of God (from their 1996 catalog as obtained by www.anabaptists.org).
Rod and Staff is a publishing company, and they've been producing Christian textbooks since 1963. They don't have a website, so if someone claims to be "The official Rod and Staff website," it is not truly affiliated with them. They are sold by many independent dealers, however you can write to them at P.O. Box 3 Highway 172 Crockett, KY 41413-0003 to obtain a catalog, receive a sample packet of periodicals, or just get more information.
A surprising detail about this company is that they don't produce Kindergarten materials, purposely. They believe that Kindergarteners should be learning to follow simple instructions, doing puzzles, reading to them, learning coloring and cutting, and Biblical values and character (www.anabaptists.org). They do offer complete curriculum sets for grades 1 through 12. For the younger learners, they produce simple workbooks that cover early learning skills, like coloring, cutting and recognizing numbers.
