What Curriculum Do You Use?
There is no one right or wrong answer when choosing a curriculum. What works for one child or family might not work for another. However, I believe there are great benefits in seeing what other people are using and learning more about the available options. Therefore, I have shared what we used for each grade each year in case it is beneficial to someone. I will be updated this page with additional resources.
Also, please remember that because I review curriculum we use an even wider variety than most families. You do not have to change as often as we do or try as many programs. A good friend says, “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” when it comes to finding a curriculum. Basically, do not feel like you have to always search for something different if what you have is working.
