Our Homeschool Curriculum for 2016-2017

Hey Everyone, I have missed you! I have been in a hiatus. Shortly after my 4th baby was born back in January, we began feeling a tug on our hearts toward full-time homeschooling. So that’s where I’ve been… Praying. researching, Youtube watching, reading and learning all I could about homeschooling. Could I, can I, REALLY do it? 

If you’ve read any of my homeschool posts, you know we take time to reevaluate each year. So this year we have made a decision to homeschool without doing the hybrid way we had been doing. 

Lincoln is going to be in 3rd grade and Julia is going to be in 2nd grade. London, our 2 year old will be just playing, puzzling, playdoughing and other fun things like that. Coby, well, he’s just along for the ride. 😉 We plan on starting our day with a morning basket that I will discuss in another post.

So without further ado, here are our curriculum choices: 

Language Arts

  • Bob Jones University English (Julia 2, Lincoln 3) BJU emphasizes traditional grammar, such as parts of speech, sentence structure, and mechanics, and provides practice with essential reference skills. As well as the writing process. **review
  • **if we do spelling, we’ll use Spelling city (use words from reading curriculum) 
  • All About Reading 2 & 3(Julia) interactive hands on approach to reading and becoming a fluent reader for life
  • Christian Light Education Reading Level 3 or 4(Lincoln)reading and comprehension 


  • Math-U-See  (Julia-Beta, Lincoln Gamma) hands on approach with math manipulatives **review

    Thanks for sharing your curriculum and homeschool planner choices. I wanted to also share a free resource I found for typing that you can find through this link: https://alison.com/topic/learn/64/5163/touch-typing-skills/basic-technique-1

    They also have many other free online courses, including languages, sciences, and more. They have courses for all ages as well and will provide a certificate when you pass with an 80 or better.

  2. Homeschooling is amazing! Been doing it for 7 years, no regrets. So glad you are going full time- it’ll make a huge difference. We use a lot of what you are using like Apologia, Veritas Press, CLE also. When the children get older, look at Teaching Textbooks for Math, CLE math is fantastic and super similar to Saxon just easier to understand, Prairie Primer (can be a whole curriculum in itself but we r using it for history mainly) GOD put a whole universe out there for us to learn and explore from…and it’s all free! Thank you for being the Lord’s servants in what you do with helping others live healthy.
