When we made the decision to homeschool, I was worried about the cost. Not about the time committment, stressful days, or judgemental remarks... the cost. I asked fellow homeschoolers, who were confident in using workbooks and real life, and I thought to myself, why complicate it? There are so many free resources, I figured we could make a fun, engaging list of resources to cover what we should be covering!
Thats where the curriculum you see - all be it, a work in progress - comes in. Admittedly, its a time consuming process finding resources, and trying to do it in an order thats progressive, while tying themes in with the right time of year. There may be resources that you feel are totally random, so I apologize, but I aimed for the best, based on what I had. Feel free to switch things around, add and remove, ignore, replace, whatever works for you.
My intention with this list of resources was to give a schedule covering the minimum of what was in the curriculum workbooks, but exploring themes further and develop a love for learning. My intention was never to say "teach your child this way, for this long, at this time."
I am by no means an education professional, or an expert in this homeschooling business, but what I am is passionate and determined to help my children - and yours - learn in the best way for them.
I hope this explains better what I hope to accomplish with what I've provided on our site, and I hope you are able to benefit from it as well.
