Last year I made a permanent spot for our homeschool curriculum choices at Hodgepodge. I wanted it to be easy for you to find our favorites and easy for me to share when I get a curriculum question (because we have such an age range and I share many reviews at The Curriculum Choice). I’ve spent some time updating each of the links below for the upcoming homeschool year. Plus I have a few big reviews coming in the next couple months. So stay tuned!
We are heading into our 15th year of homeschool – having homeschooled from preschool all the way up through high school. This is yet another big year of homeschooling for us: our elementary children in second and fourth grades. A last year of middle school for middle girl in eighth grade (next year a high schooler!) Plus both a junior and a senior in high school. Yes, we will be having ‘senior moments’ for two years in a row! So much to be thankful for!

Would it surprise you to know that our methods truly are a hodgepodge? One ingredient added. Another sifted in. Mixing slowly. Seasoning to taste. The roots of our method are classical. There’s a healthy dose of Charlotte Mason enrichment. Plus, the unit studies help us all learn together. And the whole-hearted approach speaks of each child’s relationship with the Lord.
This looks short and sweet but each one of the linked posts below is packed with information. However, please don’t be overwhelmed. Remember, this is a listing of the favorites we’ve used in all of our years of homeschooling with all sorts of learning styles!
Homeschool Curriculum Choices by School
- Homeschooling Multiple Ages – Curriculum Choices – we do many of our subjects and learning all together. Layers and levels – lasagna learning.
- Preschool and Kindergarten Curriculum Choices – having had a preschooler for 17 years – there are many favorites we’ve turned to over the years.
- Elementary Homeschool Curriculum Choices – So, each day I start with the little ones first. And I know the day will come when they outgrow the little desks. But before I get into curricula resources, I want to share with you part of the continuing homeschool makeover. A big part of homeschooling is finding your groove. We’ve found that learning centers are the very best for our ages and stages.
- Middle School Curriculum Choices – Our middle school girl is a busy, kinesthetic learner who loves to craft. She loves to make things. Do things. Move. Participate. Give her a display board for a biography report. Let her make a salt dough map. She loves to color while I read. Crafts, creations, busy. That’s her.
- High School Homeschool Curriculum Choices – This year we again have two high schoolers – young adults in 11th and 12th grade. I have a senior and a junior, y’all!
