Curriculum Ideas

The great thing about homeschool curriculums is that you can pick and choose exactly what you want your children to learn, and how they learn. You can purchase an entire curriculum in a subject, you can purchase an entire unit study, or you can find completely free lesson plans and other teaching tools online.

Here is a list of some of the best homeschool sites I have found that have lesson plans, unit studies, as well as curriculum.

Christian Plays is absolutely wonderful! My children love learning about the Bible, but sometimes I do feel them getting bored, even though I relate everything to teenage life. Christian Plays is a great way to get out of the daily routine of reading a Bible story, discussing the story, then moving on to the next story. The children, and even the parents if they want, can dress up and act out short Christian skits. It is definitely a way to get your children up and moving and excited about learning the Bible!

Human Anatomy and Physiology Course is a wonderful course for those at the high school level, or even if you have an advanced middle schooler. The course covers everything imaginable and is a great way to teach your children about Anatomy.

Math Without A Calculatoris one of my favorite sites! My children are learning how to do math WITHOUT a calculator all over again. It's great to watch them count with their fingers instead of with my phone calculator!
Math Riddle Worksheet Bookis one of my kids' favorites. Every math problem is put in the form of a riddle, so it takes their mind off of math and focusing more on the riddle, which in turn has helped their math scores tremendously!
Knowledge Questis an awesome, fun website with a ton of information!

See The Light ShineI just had to add this site in again because I am so in love it! My 11 year old is a drawing fanatic and just this one site has enough courses and trainings to keep him occupied for the entire school year! What I love the most is the Christian based atmosphere. It's a way for my children to draw closer to God while still doing the things they love...drawing!
