When it comes to homeschool curriculum, we always want to know what everyone else is doing. This can be great because some of the best companies don’t have a lot of funds for advertising and there is much that we can learn from others’ choices. However, before I share my list with you I want to remind you that every journey is unique…made up of different children with unique needs and different mamas with unique likes, strengths and challenges. There is no best curriculum or one-size-fits-all answer to your family’s homeschool needs. I would encourage you to pray about what your specific family needs before making any choices this year!
4th Grade Homeschool Curriculum
Leah is a typical first-born girl. She loves to read and simply can not get enough. She would rather exchange anything to do with animals for a math textbook and she loves to be outside. Here is the curriculum that I selected for her this year.
We love Christian Light Education Math. We took a break last year and I regretted it. CLE is very thorough, yet not a beat-you-over-the-head kind of math. All of my kids love it. This year we are adding Life of Fred to the mix since my kids are avid readers and have been begging to read these books.
I have always loved real books. We head to the library every single week and come home with basketfuls. I think at this age, it’s best to let them pursue interests and read as they chose. Soon enough, they will have required reading!
We will be having science in our co-op this year as well as at home. Below is the book that we will do at home this year.
3rd Grade Homeschool Curriculum
Rachel is a great student. It took her a little longer to read than her sister and she’d honestly rather do some math or play with dolls. She needs a little extra confidence to believe that she is capable, despite my reminder that she is a good reader. She enjoys puzzles and critical thinking. Here is the curriculum that I chose for her.
All About Spelling Level 3
1st Grade Homeschool Curriculum
Nathan is 100% boy. If his little body found it’s way into a public school classroom, he’d be labeled and medicated for his inability to sit still. (Trust me, I’ve been the teacher who recommended such things.) Fortunately, there is no one here forcing him to sit down. He can jump, hop, skip or stand on his head…as long as he’s learning. And he has really surprised me with his zeal for school. I can’t wait for this year!
