For the first time since beginning our home schooling journey, I have decided to buy some curriculums for the children. Prior to this we have just flown by the seat of our pants dabbling in a little of this and a little of that. My approach is very eclectic and I take what works and leave the rest so as you read the choices below you will see we pull from a wide range of resources. If I found something doesn't work or click with the children I will revised as needed.
