Bible Top Picks

  1. We Choose Virtues is a fantastic program that teaches children 12 different character virtues in a fun way that they can remember. I used the program for kids in previous years, and this year we are doing the Teen/Tween program!
  2. Not Consumed has a series of Bible studies that you can get for kids-youth.  I plan on using several of her studies this year, including My Brother’s Keeper, Do Right: Learning to Make Wise Choices in the Face of Temptation, and The Fruit of the Tongue.

Math Top Picks

  1. Teaching Textbooks 7th grade and Pre-Algebra is my Top Pick for my daughter.  We love the way she can work through it on her own.
  2. Life of Fred Pre-Algebra Set we will use with my son who likes the literature based approach and easy to grasp daily lessons.

Science Top Picks

  1. God’s Design for Science is a great Science program by Answers in Genesis.  My daughter will be doing Machines & Motion as well as Inventions & Technology.  Both of these classes are available on SKrafty Online Education with Minecraft
  2. Life of Fred Pre-Algebra Set includes Physics, Biology, & Economics!  A great 2 for 1 curriculum!

History Top Picks

  1. My son wanted to study Wars this year for history.  I had an idea of how I wanted him to learn, so I designed my own series called Walk Through Wars.  The American Revolution is published, with the others coming right behind.  You can check out this series HERE!
