Curriculum Finder

Choosing a curriculum can be one of the scariest aspects of homeschooling, both from the overwhelming options, to the pressure to “get it right” in your choice.

Some of the best advice I got starting out was to not sink a ton of money into the curriculum when you start.

Finding your child’s learning style will save you a lot of headaches. Give yourself time to learn about your child, and really research your options.

Another thing, don’t feel locked in. If a curriculum isn’t working, change it. This could be midyear, end of the year, every year, whenever it stops working change it. 

Cathy Duffy Reviews is a fantastic starting point for checking into all kinds of curriculums!

Many times we are asked, “How do I know what to teach in which grade?”.  Many curricula are set up to guide you to age/grade-appropriate levels which is helpful.

In Alabama, you aren’t required to teach a specific thing in certain grade levels, and further, one of the great freedoms of homeschooling is the ability to move your child up and down per their abilities in each subject. It’s very common for a child to be at one grade level in one subject, and another grade in another subject.

The information given here is for you to get an idea, or to help you stay on a guided track if that is important to you.
