Homeschooling :: Some of My Favorite Curriculum Links
I've had a lot of people asking me lately about what homeschool curriculum I use or what products are the best on the market for grammar or mathematics, so I thought I would share a few of my favorite links.
I do want you to know there is no wrong or right curriculum or even homeschooling style when it comes to deciding what is best for your child and family. I know families which use the classical method as prescribed by Susan Wise Bauer; the Charlotte Mason approach (true classical), unschooling, schooling at home via the public school system, eclectic, and more.
Knowing children from all of these types of educational homes, I can attest to their brightness and their creative drives. Homeschooling is essentially a tailored educational approach to each child in order for them to learn to their fullest capacity. All this being said, the following has worked best in our home.
Please feel free to share your favorites!
Classical Christian Homeschooling
Veritas Press - I have used the Veritas Press catalog as my book guide in the past. I love their Phonics Museum program.
Ambleside Online - This is a wonderful site for Charlotte Mason minded individuals to find a complete outline of the curriculum for all grade levels.
Simply Charlotte Mason
Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World
I included the following groups, not so much for curriculum, but for their knowledge in the law. These sites have wonderful definitions of the homeschooling styles as well as additional links to resources.
