How to Choose Secular Homeschool Curriculum

Choosing a secular homeschool curriculum can be daunting. There are so many to choose from and it can be tough to determine which one is right for you and your family.

Cost tends to be the deal-breaker when shopping for curriculum.

There are other options: buying used curriculum – borrowing books from the library

How old are your kids? Are they ready for independent learning or are you still very much involved in every part of it?

What learning approach will you be following? Through time I’ve learned that we are eclectic homeschoolers.

Computer-based homeschool curriculum or bookwork is the first big question for me.

If you are part of a homeschool group ask the other homeschool parents what they use and if you could take a look at it if it is something you think you may be interested in.

Don’t jump into a curriculum. Yes, there are ways to make a curriculum work for you even if it ends up not being everything you dreamt it would be, but save yourself the stress, and heartache in the beginning.
