Here on the homestead, we have tried many different curriculums, online programs, workbooks, and even units that are meant to be done by all the kiddos. We have some favorites and programs that we keep coming back to again and again. We love that we can do some subjects together and some independently. Both are important.
Once you decide which type of homeschooling you'd like to do, then choosing curriculum will be easier. Here on the homestead, we like to use different styles. We have a blend of traditional, Charlotte-Mason, and a Classical approach. Don't worry if you haven't figured it all out just yet...just try things and change things to make your homeschool program successful and enjoyable. It'll be great!
Having a plan before beginning just works best for us. We have tried just jumping into the year and winging it with curriculum we've had on hand but this route doesn't always end pretty, ha! I like to have forms that show my plan, books we are using, credits earned for the high school kiddos, and even some fun options or field trips that we would like to add throughout the year.
Here are our top curriculum picks:
