Don’t Panic Homeschooling Curriculum | Picking Home School Curriculum

blur-old-antique-book 200So you’re not panicking–really.  You’re just a little nervous, that’s all.  And since you just pulled junior out of school yesterday, you would feel a lot better if you had something to work with while your not panicking.  I know you how you feel.

I was the same way.  So I went out and bought a couple of workbooks to hold me over until I could figure what I really needed to do.  I know, you’re wondering, “how long did it take her to figure it out and what did she figure?”

Let’s not talk about that, after all, this isn’t about me.

I offer the following resources as suggestions for “not panicking while I’m researching my options.”  It includes a couple of workbooks, some internet sites, and a few suggestions for the teacher.  The grades are only a reference, use what works best for your child and situation.

And please remember, these are only suggestions for getting started.  The only thing you may learn form them is that they don’t work for your child.  But at least you won’t be stuck with a year’s worth a curriculum that you won’t use.  Then again, it’s a great way to find out about used curriculum sales.
