Our Homeschool Curriculum Choices 2019-2020

I've been squeezing in as much time as possible lately planning out our next year of homeschool. I adore planning, researching curriculum, and ordering shiny new books, so this is absolutely no hardship!

As my kids grow, I find I need to purchase less and less—but I do still have some fun boxes showing up at the door and we have some new things we're trying this year. I plan to linger over summer as long as possible, but I'm also starting to get excited about our upcoming school year.

Today, I'm sharing our curriculum picks for the 2019-2020 homeschool year!

This year, I have three homeschooling—my boys are 11th and 9th graders, and my youngest daughter will be entering sixth grade. My oldest daughter is officially graduated and will continue on at a local community college, where she started full-time as a dual-enrollment student this past year.

I hope to share reviews about as many of these programs as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a comment!

I also regularly share what we're doing and reading on Instagram, where you can follow me @onehomeschoolingmama.

Okay, on to the picks!

(While we are not a Christian family, we used Apologia's Swimming Creatures last year because she wanted a marine biology program and it was the one full curriculum I could find. She loved it, and we found the religious aspects easy enough to modify/skip.)

My 9th and 11th graders will use:

History and Literature

My 6th grader will use:

  • A selection of books from BookShark's Eastern Hemisphere
  • The Arrow from Bravewriter — we dabbled in these a bit last year, but this year I signed us up for the whole year and I can't wait to get started!

My 9th grader will use:

My 11th grader will use:

My 9th and 11th graders will also use:

  • The Boomerang from Brave Writer. This will be our first time trying it, and I'm looking forward to some great conversation!

(Note: While we have consistently used BookShark/Sonlight for several years, this year I am mixing things up a bit— taking out some books, adding in others, and using the books in a more "free choice" manner. More on that in a future post!)

Language Arts

My 6th grader will use:

My 9th and 11th graders will use:

My 6th grader will use:

My 9th and 11th graders will use:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
