Curriculum & Materials
Homeschooling gives you the freedom to choose the materials that you see fit for your family. Some families know what approach or materials they want to use, whereas other families prefer guidance and recommendations from professionals in the field of education, such as the suggestions linked below.
We recommend using these choices because we believe in the multi-sensory practices or the educational frameworks embedded in the programs. You are welcome to use or purchase your own materials, however we encourage you to explore the possibility of purchasing any of the below listed resources.
Our recommended curriculum resources for K-5 are below. Some links might bring you to an affiliate website where you can purchase the resources. The following materials are not faith-based. If you'd like to add faith into your studies, we support your choice to do so.
