Favorite Curriculum

TLC ~ April 24, 2019

We spent the evening sharing some of our favorite curriculum.  This is not all-inclusive, by any means!

  • Masterbooks for Bible, History, Science and Literature.
  • Writing will stay with Bravewriter, using their Help for High School and the Boomerang book studies. We have done the book studies for years now and Rhaelyn loves them.
  • Teaching Textbooks will remain for math.
  • Simply Charlotte Masons handcrafts and we will be using their Shakespeare 12th Night study.
  • **For those with younger kiddos, I highly suggest: for nature study this summer. I have been using her free curriculum with the boys for about 4 months now and they love it.
