When reading this over, make sure to keep in mind that there are a couple of popular curriculum options that didn’t work for me personally. It’s always important to remember that not every person learns the same way. For me, visual aids help but for others it may keep them from learning. Always look for curriculum that suits a person’s learning patterns.
- Time4Learning. This is a curriculum that I use, and it has an electronic format, which, truth be told, looks really pretty.
- Saxon. I know when I hear this name, I tend to cringe. It’s somewhat hard work and it’s long, but in the end you do learn from it. Here is a list of practice sheets if you want to see if it’ll work for you.
- MathUSee. This is more of a visual math, like the name itself says. If you’ve seen those math blocks, that’s what this is. However, it does get harder as you go on. Typically MathUSee has videos you can buy and that’s the “visual” part for the high schoolers. If you want to do some math drills and see if this is your kind of curriculum, you can do that here.
- Khan Academy. It wasn’t intended as a curriculum at first, but Khan Academy has grown a lot and it now is a fully functional online math curriculum, as well as other subjects like Economics, Science, and others. These are all videos. You can check out the site here.
- AllInOneHomeschooling. This one is for most everything; Art, Math, Health, History, Science.I personally use this curriculum for English and it seems to be working for me.
- Homeschool Science Tools. This isn’t a curriculum; it’s a website listing a whole bunch of them. This one is about science and everything to deal with science; curriculum, microscopes and other supplies.
