What kind of curriculum do you use?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
The only ones I really know of are A Beka and ACE which are both religiously based... I'm religious but would rather not use religious materials.

We use Oak Meadow and Enki. Currently we are doing Kinder with our oldest; next year we will do first grade. They both, together, work really nicely for my family and I hope to use them through all 3 boys. They are Waldorf-inspired, not religious, very flexible, and holistic. HTH

We didn't use a curriculum, but if we had, it would definitely have been Oak Meadow (Enki just wasn't around at the time).

Most homeschoolers I've known who have started with a set, packaged, sort of curriculum have abandoned it early on in favor of choosing materials in a more eclectic way as they need them. Lillian

For next year we're going with Winter Promise, which is a Charlotte Mason inspired literature based approach that is similiar to Sonlight only with more hands on type activities.

I don't use everything on Ambleside, but what I do use, I'm very happy with. It follows the Charlotte Mason approach, which works very well in my family.

No curriculum for us but like Lillian if we had it might have been an Oak Meadowy sort of thing.

Is there a link? I hadn't heard of Winter Promise (though I'm familiar with Charlotte Mason. )

We use Five in a Row and Beyond Five in a Row. We supplement with lapbooks from Hands of a Child on the topics the boys want to cover more in depth. We also use Math U See and Teach Your Child to read in a 100 Easy Lessons for DS2.

I used various when I was homeschooled including A Beka and Alpha Omega. I've used Calvert (not religious at all), putting together my own stuff, and Sonlight with my kids. I love Sonlight since literature based just works for my kids.

Winter Promise is www.winterpromise.com

Other curriculums I've used:
Five in a Row
Hands on Homeschooling
My Father's World
Sonlight

Mostly, at this point, we've abandoned using a comprehensive, all-inclusive curriculum. My kids research topics they're interested in, and do one page of phonics (Explode the Code) and math (Miquon) each day.

We don't really use a specific curriculum. We do use a literature based approach, picking books from several different reading lists. I also use curriculum for math (Horizons and *Key to*) and Language (ETC, Daily Grams), Foreign Language (Rosetta Stone) and upper level science (real science 4 kids chemistry II).

We also do lots of science projects, read tons and play lots of learning games for math and language.
