Our Curriculum Choices – Year 10

Our Curriculum Choices Year 10

(Last Updated on January 16, 2024)

If time flies when you’re having fun, then we must be having a blast! 

It seems like just yesterday I was wondering if this crazy idea called “homeschooling” would work for our family. Now we’re ten years into our home educating journey and my oldest is starting high school! 

Each year I’ve shared Our Curriculum Choices and plans for the year. Read on to find out what homeschool resources we’ll be using this coming year with our 9th, 6th, and 2nd graders.

To see what we’ve used in previous years and different grades, check out this first post which has links to all the posts in this series.

Year 10 Snapshot

This past year has been one of our most unpredictable so far. It’s made me more grateful than ever that we homeschool! 

Homeschooling has really been the only aspect of our situation that hasn’t changed since we’ve moved twice in this last year. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride but, ready or not, the new school year is upon us. 

One shift in my methods is how co-op will fit into our plans this year. In the past, co-op was mainly about fun electives (gym, art, LEGO classes, etc.). But, as my kids get older and now my high schooler needs certain core classes, we’ll be taking more academic classes at our new co-op.

Here’s what we’ll be using for our 10th year of homeschooling:

Other Fun Stuff

As usual we’ll round things out with the BookIt and local library reading programs, field trips, and some other extracurricular activities. 

We use the Bastien Piano Basics series at home for my second and sixth graders. And my sixth and ninth graders will continue playing in the local homeschool band, taking private music lessons, and joining church and co-op worship teams as opportunities present themselves.  

My youngest has really been enjoying American Heritage Girls and will try soccer this fall. Her brothers are considering joining Trail Life and taking more programming and art classes on Udemy, but we’ll see…

…there are only so many hours in a day!

A NOTE TO NEW HOMESCHOOLERS: If you’re just starting out, it can be overwhelming to see a list like this. So many subjects. So many curricula choices. Ahhh!! Jumping in to any new thing can be scary but you can do it!! Start small and add things slowly as you find what works for your family and your situation. 

Starting out, one of the biggest hurdles for me was learning to break out of the “my-homeschool-must-look-like-public-school” mindset. My book, Think About Homeschooling, was written to help new homeschoolers break past stumbling blocks like that and build confidence for the journey ahead! Click here for more information.
