Lately in the homeschooling blog scene, everyone is talking about what curriculum they use.
We have decided not to use a curriculum, at least to start.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about A BEKA.
If we do end up using a curriculum, this is probably the one I will choose.
I have a lot of research to do when it comes to curriculum, but I’m not to that point yet.
I’m really hoping I will only have to use it for a few subjects here & there.
We have a lot of books and information on most historical events, so I should be able to do history without a boxed in ‘this is what you must learn’ ideal.
I’m pretty good at spelling and grammar, so I hope to do this by myself.
There are other aspects of English / Language Arts that I’m not so good at, so those I will need outside help with – which I’m hoping I can just find online.
Math – There are so many resources for this subject, that we REALLY shouldn’t NEED a boxed curriculum. I should be able to find most of what we need online.
Plus, I have a few textbooks that I’ve bought in the bookstore.
Science will be my hardest area, as I’m not a science fan – AT ALL.
Hubby will be able to teach them a lot, and we have many science books – not including all the science workbooks A has brought home from school after they were done with them.
Computer, I will be able to handle.
Hubby and I are both in love with computers.
design programs. Me, with all things internet and writing related.
Social studies – which includes history – will be mostly home made curriculum.
We can learn all we need to about geography online or in books that we already own.
Bible curriculum is simple, we use our Bible and the different devotionals we have.
We could do different lessons based on different verses and what not, which I will plan out when the times come.
If you have used a curriculum, what would you recommend? Also, if you don’t use a curriculum, where do you get your resources from?
