Testimonials:

“I love the Robinson Curriculum! I've used it for a year, and am sticking with it, especially now that there are so many more CD-ROMs to use. I love it because my girls really are becoming self taught, my 12 year old having literally educated herself this year. There are subjects that she knows better than I do. How could I expect to teach her those subjects? So, I turn to those who can teach her, and their written word makes it possible for them to reach even beyond the grave to continue the influence that helped shape the people I've learned to respect and accept as mentors.”
-PJA

“We are in our third year of homeschooling, with ‘older’ children who were accustomed to testing and quizzes and spoon-fed material. Math was miserable for the highschooler and me until this year. She is gaining confidence and is actually enjoying it! My 11-year-old giggled at some of the antiquated phrases ("Oh, pooh!" said one of the Rover boys in book No. 16), but he is learning and developing an interest in history for the first time. I can definitely see us continuing this curriculum through high school for both of them.”

Classical Christian Homeschool Curriculum Choices:

Sonlight - Sonlight Curriculum is most popular and best fit with people who foster a love of reading. Sonlight encourages reading literature rather than text books and requires very few consumable workbooks that cannot be reused for your younger children. There is also a lot of flexibility within the curriculum itself that allows you to do as little or as much as you would like. They offer free online comprehensive math placement tests and an affordable $20 reading assessment for children of every age group. There is also a comforting Eight-Week Risk-Free Trial for all curriculum packages.

Sonlight Testimonial:

“We LOVE Sonlight, but you HAVE to LOVE to read to your kids! I have used Sonlight with my oldest son for K, 1st and 2nd. There is a lot of reading on your part involved, which may or may not be an issue for you. Sonlight tends to be advanced, but they advise you to tweak the curriculum to your own situation, not for you to be a slave to it. We've skipped books that didn't catch my son's interest and didn't feel guilty about it. I would highly recommend Sonlight for those who love to read.”
-Diane, homeschool mom, Ohio


Horizons Curriculum – Horizons curriculum focuses on math skills but also offers spelling, phonics, and penmanship workbooks. Check out the link for more info!

Horizons Testimonial:

“I switched from Saxon and several other trials with other programs to Horizon this last school year. I made several of my children go back a level or so, they didn't care for it but I have found that with doing that and working diligently they have all pretty much caught up to grade level or in one case -his level-. I plan to use Horizons with all six of my younger children thru level (grade) 6 and then switch to Saxon Algebra or 1/2 depending on the child. I have to say that my younger children-- up to age 12 seem to be grasping and retaining math very well with this program. With my older children it seemed like I had to keep switching programs or customizing them for them.  Wish I'd had Horizons when they were little!”
-Julie, mom to the eleven sent from heaven!, MN


Saxon Math – Saxon Math is a traditional system that has been used by too many homeschoolers to count! Check out the link for more info!

Saxon Math Testimonial:

“I have used Saxon Math for K-7th grade so far and love it! I believe that it is well worth the cost for my sons. The sixth grade book starts with review as do most math books. There are drill sheets to reinforce basic multiplication, division, etc. Then each lesson has an activity box where you mentally do some problems together. Then you present the lesson and do some practice problems together. After that, they do 25-30 problems on their own. All the problems they do on their own are cumulative of what they have learned so far with a few pertaining to the lesson just taught. This way, they retain what they've learned all year.

“If they do not work for your child, you shouldn't have a problem reselling through e-bay or a homeschool group. They have worked for all 3 of my children, each of whom have different learning styles.

“Hope this helps!”
-Michelle


LIFEPAC - LIFEPAC curriculum is based on the principle of mastery learning, in which students truly master the content and skills of one unit before progressing to the next. Your children are ensured success because mastery learning allows them to spend as much time as they need in a particular subject area before moving on.


Switched-On Schoolhouse – Switched-On Schoolhouse is a software program that uses a fully interactive interface.
Being fully interactive makes learning more fun for your children. This allows your children to work more on their own and makes teaching much easier for you.


Calvert School – Calvert School offers a time tested, rich, academically stimulating and accredited program featuring textbooks from Calvert and a wide range of publishers. They provide placement to ensure that your child is working at the most appropriate level and testing to confirm achievement.

Calvert Testimonial:

“I used Calvert for 4 years.  Cons = very expensive, not good if your children don't like to work out of text books, this program works better if you plan on staying with Calvert for a few years at a time.  Pros = quality materials, very helpful staff.  They do have what is called ATS (Advisory Teaching Service) where you can pay a hundred dollars or so to have their teachers grade your papers and see where they can improve. (I have never used ATS because it was too expensive for us and our kids were just doing K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd and I knew I could correct their tests on my own.) Good thing is even if you don't use ATS you can still call and use their teachers for quick answers and ideas.  They were wonderful!!!”
-Lori


A2 – A2 offers a Classical Christian curriculum that is inexpensive and effective. It costs only $99 for all your basic curriculum needs for ages K-12. This is great for parents with multiple children. You can homeschool all of your kids with the same program at no extra charge. At such a low cost you can easily suppliment this curriculum with any speicalized topics of your choice.

A2 Testimonial:

“I bought your curriculum and another Curriculum. This is my first year home schooling my two young Children, 4 and 6 1/2. I am doing a great deal of research and trying not to go overboard but the first year is about researching and testing the water. I am amazed at how easy it was to navigate and print the kindergarten and first grade curriculum. I printed your curriculum out in less than three hours and I am still trying to figure out the other curriculum and it's many cds. I may never bother.”
- Jennifer Robinson


Robinson Curriculum - Robinson curriculum is different than probably anything you have heard of. Mr. Robinson’s philosophy is to teach our children to teach themselves & cover the basics: reading, writing, and arithmetic - the rest will come. Mr. Robinson suggests that children read classic literature - not fluff – and provides you with a list of books. He recommends Saxon Math only because it’s also based on a child’s ability to self teach.

Robinson Homeschool Curriculum Testimonial:

“I love the Robinson Curriculum! I've used it for a year, and am sticking with it, especially now that there are so many more CD-ROMs to use. I love it because my girls really are becoming self taught, my 12 year old having literally educated herself this year. There are subjects that she knows better than I do.

Classical Literature Homeschool Testimonial:

"I believe that the education of homeschool children would be enhanced if an entire school year were taken off to focus on reading excellent literature. When I was pregnant with my fifth child, I had the opportunity to test this theory. It was not by choice, but by necessity, that we implemented this mode of learning. I was sick almost the entire pregnancy and spent much time in bed. The children gathered in my bed and listened to me read aloud for hours, though, I admit, I worried that they might suffer academically. The opposite proved to be true as I observed that their vocabulary, thinking, and composition skills soared. When it came time for annual testing, their reading, spelling, and math scores had actually improved. This was proof enough for me: exposure to great literature stimulates the mind. Since that time, literature has held a high position in our home."
-Valerie Bendt

Unit Studies Resources and Curriculum

I have found many free online resources for unit studies; however, most of the time these unit studies will require hands-on organization, materials, resources, and can be time consuming.

There are unit studies that sell from anywhere between $8.00 and $400.00. The less you spend, the more time it takes to complete; the more expensive kits include all the materials you need, and are completely organized for you. These can also be used for all age groups. Really look at what you get for your money before buying.
