There are so many homeschool curriculums out there it can be very daunting picking the right one.  First you need to determine how your family dynamics work.  For instance I have five different age children ranging from 2 to 15.  I wanted a curriculum that had something for each of them at their grade level.

I specifically wanted a curriculum that was Christian based.  The curriculum I found actually has memory verses for each grade level for each subject.  It also teaches biblical principles throughout their work.

Since their are so many curriculums out there I wanted to go with one that was tested by my peers.  I found home school families that had similar dynamics as mine.  For instance we have a Pastor friend that home school’s.  Since my husband is a pastor and we live similar life styles their curriculum choice weighed heavy.  I asked them about their curriculum and why they liked it.  I asked them what their day looked like using their books.  I even asked them how they ordered their materials.  They were even able to direct me to other families that used their curriculum and loved it.

It did take a little research.  However, I knew without a doubt what curriculum I wanted to try. When I finally started school with my new curriculum, I used my friends suggestions on how to implement the curriculum in our day. I love what I chose to use and it works perfectly for our family.

If you are changing curriculum or starting new make sure you pick what’s best for your family.  I found there are a lot of different opinions about every curriculum out there.  Good Luck!

What curriculum is your favorite and why?
