The Best Homeschool Curriculum

People will often ask me what is the "best" homeschool curriculum, but it really depends on your family and your children. But I'm happy to share the curriculum that was a good fit for me and my boys.



When I began homeschooling, my friends suggested Sonlight Curriculum because it is so easy for beginners to use.  I liked it because it was literature-based, and the literature-based curriculum was the only good thing about our public school gifted program.  It seemed really expensive at the time, but I figured a whole year of Sonlight cost less than a month at a private school, so it seemed worth the risk.  My children loved it!  When we go the big box of books, they wanted to start homeschooling that same day!  It was a very smooth transition into homeschooling, and I felt like Sonlight really held my hand through the change from public school.

Sonlight was such a perfect fit for my children; we kept using it and loving it.  After 5 years, my children had read almost all the books in their program, because they were such prolific readers.  At that time, I felt like Sonlight had trained me how to homeschool.  I was able to create my own literature based curriculum.
