Homeschool Resources

Whether or not you are just beginning your homeschool journey, or you are a seasoned homeschool teacher, sometimes what worked for one child, does not work at all for the next child, and the research starts all over again.

I was homeschooled along with my 4 younger siblings and we were all different learners, with different strengths and weaknesses. We used so many different curriculums and resources depending on our interests, learning styles, grades, etc. There is no one size fits all in homeschooling and you might have to use multiple different curriculums at the same time! You use whatever works best for your child.

My 4 siblings and I and our rockstar Mom.

Here are some of the curriculums and resources that have been used in my family, that I have used with my students, and that I have researched. I hope this helps you in some way!

  • Teaching Textbooks is strictly for math. My little sister used this for math in middle and high school and loved it. They have lessons for 3rd grade-pre calculus. The cost is annual and affordable, with the most expensive family plan being $217. Grades 3-5 are only $45 for the year! It is an app so your child can use it on any device they like.

  • Khan Academy used to just be for math but now they offer just about everything, and for FREE! I know plenty of children that use Khan Academy for their courses, including my little sister who used it through middle and high school for multiple subjects and loved it. They offer courses for PreK-8th grade, as well as high school and college level math classes and test preps. The videos are interactive and easy to follow. Students in my classes in public school used it for remediation purposes as well.

  • Monarch is an online Christian homeschool curriculum. My siblings used this for a short time and enjoyed it, but I've also heard mixed reviews depending on the child and their learning style. Monarch offers automatic grading which definitely saves some time! They have the following subject: Bible, History & Geography, Math, Language Arts, Science, and a series of electives for grades 3-12. Monarch is a little on the pricey side compared to some of the other curriculums, but its still only $400 for the yearly subscription.

  • Power Homeschool includes courses with interactive lessons and videos for grades K-12. They have a Facebook page for all of the parents called: The Official Facebook Group for Power Homeschool Parents. All of the parent reviews all have very good things to say about this curriculum across the board. Tuition is only $25/month per student and students are able to take 7 courses simultaneously and at their own pace.

If there is something that you have used that worked well, please comment and let me know! I am always trying to research and support homeschool families as much as I can.
