Super Heroes of Elementary Homeschool Curriculum

I know,  everyone has there favorites. I do too. I’m really not trying to play favorites, but there are just a few homeschool curriculum that really stand out! I’ve homeschooled for many years with six children and there are some curriculum that are good, but just don’t work for big families. There are others that might be easy for big families, but I just don’t feel like they work for us. So, without further adieu here are our “super heroes” of Elementary Homeschool Curriculum.

Bible –  We enjoy Five J’s Free Bible Curriculum and Harvest Ministries also has a free Bible curriculum that’s great!

Math – Our favorite of all time is Saxon Math – though it isn’t free… it’s still a superhero. We also have used ABEKA for elementary math and it works great for us too! As a supplement to our curriculum we also use Time4Learning for math and Language Arts.

Language Arts – We have up until this year used ABEKA for language arts, but recentlys switched to Saxon for this as well. We have been enjoying it! Again we use T4L to supplement, and our spelling curriculum is ABEKA put into Spelling and Vocabulary City.

Science is definitely Apologia. We use this curriculum provider from Kindergarten through high school. It is written specifically for homeschoolers.

History is a mixed bag. We use Time Travelers History for the little guys, and a mixture of free online college courses for our high school history!

Foreign language is Latin by Memoria Press with the DVDs for elementary school, and Rosetta Stone for our high school students.

We just started a new writing focused unit using the two books…Rip the Page and Don’t Forget to Write!

This year has been a great year so far, I feel the kids are learning a lot!
