Not Back to School: Homeschool Curriculum Hop
Are you ready to not go back to school? Yes, this is the time of year when parents across the country are making the decision to either for the first time, or continue to exercise their right to educate their children at home. This will be the 7th year of homeschool for me and my family.
Today I’m joining with my friends at the iHomeschool Network to share our Not Back to School Curriculum Hop. This is where we share the curriculum we have chosen for the coming year.
As a homeschool mom to an only child who is a gifted learner, I have more ability to be flexible and adapt as needed throughout the year. In our school we span a wide variety of learning styles and educational methods so an eclectic collection of homeschooling curriculum is what works best for us.
Here is a listing of all of the curricula we will be using for this year. I’ll be sharing affiliate links to places where you can purchase the items listed below.

Looks like you will have a great year. I love how eclectic your choices are! Makes for the best, one-of-a-kind learning experiece.
Eclectic does make for a custom one-of-a-kind experience. I’ve often longed for an all-in-one boxed curriculum with a pre-formatted schedule. But the reality is that wouldn’t fit either my son’s learning style or my method of teaching. So eclectic works for us. Thanks for visiting Jamie.
What a great year you have planned! We are excited to use the Middlebury foreign language too for French. Thanks for sharing what you will be doing and have a super year 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Meredith. I am looking forward a good year.
