I think we’ve all been there.  Looking for curriculum and not knowing what to choose!  There are sooo many options, and we end up choosing one because it’s the easiest!  Now don’t get me wrong, I have used and loved some all-in ones or open and go options.   Even now, there’s one that I’d love to try with my daughter because it may be a good fit.  BUT choosing curriculum just because you don’t know what else to do makes me so sad!  My passion in homeschooling is finding curriculum choices that best fit the student and the family!  Here are some check-lists of questions that I think about when choosing curriculum for the new year.

Curriculum & Planning Checklists

These are questions I always ask myself when planning a new year.  It makes a big difference when wading through curriculum choices!

Does Your Child:

  • Need parental guidance to work?
  • Like workbooks and filling in answers?
  • Like being read to and talking about things?
  • Like “projecting” on their own or being given assignments?
  • Like to write?

Do You:

  • Have time to sit with your child as they work?
  • Need something your child can do on their own?
  • Need something already planned out for you?
  • Like to do the planning on your own based on your child’s needs.
  • Prefer a textbook, video or traditional style of teaching?
  • Prefer an outside-the-box style with living books and creative assignments?
  • Need a Life Planner to help you organize everything?
