Curriculum Choices & Resources
There is a smorgasbord of choices when deciding on curricula for your family. It is often trial and error until you find what works best for you and your child. We offer you a complete look at the curriculum choices available.

 
Choosing Your Curriculum
  There are so many curriculum choices available that it can be overwhelming to know which, if any, to choose. We'll help you sort through these choices and learn what to look for in a curriculum package.

Design Your Own
  What do you do if you've tried curriculum after curriculum, spending time and money, only to find out that neither you nor your children like or thrive on them? The answer may be to design your own curriculum. It is not as daunting as it may sound. Here are some resources to help you find the right materials for your family.

Unit Studies
  Unit studies are a way to integrate many subjects into one topical unit, using one idea, subject, or topic to explore different approaches to study. In general, a topic is chosen and is studied, learning history, science, math, writing, reading, and other subjects while exploring the single topic. Unit studies work well for multi-age homeschoolers, for those looking for a creative way to learn, and for anyone who want real hands-on, real-world learning.

Literature Based Curricula
  All learning does not need to come through a textbook. In fact, using the world of books, especially "living books," will excite interest in your childen, will bring history alive, and can awaken them to new perspectives and ways of learning.

Language Arts Curricula
  Browse through resources, ideas, and curricula designed to help you teach language arts in your home, especially spelling, writing, reading, and grammar.

Math Curricula
  Learning and teaching math at home doesn't need to be hard. You just need the right tools and support. These resources and suppliers offer great idea and educational materials that will make learning math a fun and productive time in your home.

History Curricula

Geography Curricula
