In Nebraska, we are required by law every year to file for exempt status for doing homeschooling. With this comes a stringent 1030 hours of schooling a year, plus a list of curriculum we plan to use for math, reading, history, health and science. I've only been doing homeschooling for 2 years and most of that time has been something I've pieced together. I really want to try a full curriculum for all subjects though, so I think I found one.
This past year I've been reading up on Charlotte Mason methods and Thomas Jefferson Education and trying to figure out how I can put the two together. For the CM method, I found Ambleside, which is free, but then I found another one that has the books, study guides and copywork all in one package, so I think I'm going to go with that. They are from www.queenhomeschool.com
I also found in Rainbow Resource some things for Colonial America history and then, I found a series from the same place that has the classics, plus a worktext for comprehension and vocabulary. For math I plan to stick with Horizons which has been working very well for us. We plan to get one level and work on it as a family in the evenings. I'm so excited I can hardly wait to start.
So, if anyone can list or feel so inclined to share, what does your homeschooling curriculum consist of?
These are some of the sites I've found that are helpful to us for curriculum.
www.visionforum.com Kind of expensive, but AWESOME stuff.
www.queenhomeschool.com Charlotte Mason curriculum
www.amblesideonline.org Free Charlotte Mason curriculum
www.flashkidsbooks.com Core curriculum workbooks. Pretty affordable and well rounded and interesting texts and lessons.
www.rainbowresource.com Huge amount of things for homeschooling and classrooms. I suggest getting the catalog as it will be impossible to see all they have to offer on their website.
