Picking a Curriculum

Heather BouwhuizenComment

I agonize over this every summer.  What if I chose wrong?  What if we start using it, but it doesn't work with my child?  What if it's too much work.. Or not enough? 

 

i started out pulling my own curriculum together.  That worked for my kids, but was very time consuming for me.  Last year, we bought a box curriculum, which was great- covered everything and WAY less work for me!  But so expensive... 

This year, We are thinking of choosing an online curriculum.  Less expensive than the box curriculum from last year, but more expensive than me pulling a curriculum together.  It's less work than the box curriculum (I don't have to check the work!  Just follow up on making sure they have done the work).  It leaves me free to plan some fun stuff, which is what homeschooling is about! 

An online curriculum means less stuff!  These are our overflowing homeschool baskets from last year.
