My Top Ten in Curriculum

This is a list of curricula that I have used over the years to school my eight children. Many of the texts are non-consumables which simply means that the students do not write in the books, and they can be used again and again as siblings achieve each grade level. These texts give students/children a solid foundation in their homeschool education, but elective-type subjects can be included to fit the student's interests, such as digital photography, astronomy, or automotive repair, to name a few. It is my intent to provide new homeschooling families with a place to begin in their search for curricula for their children. I believe that even those who have been homeschooling for a while will find something new to introduce to their students.

Top Ten Curriculum Recommendations (No particular order!)
