Homeschool curriculum choices can be over.whelm.ing!
Like over the top make you crazy trying to choose which is best for your children. If you are like me, each child has a different learning style, but you can’ justify 2 or 3 or even 4 different sets of books to cater to each child.

I am about to embark on year 7 of homeschooling and my second round of high school, I don’t call myself an expert, but I have gone around the block a few times and read my share of curriculum catalogs.
While we have run the gamut of styles from K12 to Unschooling, I have really enjoyed Charlotte Mason style the most.
I use (loosely) Simply Charlotte Mason as a guide. There is also Ambelside Online.

Critical Thinking
Anything from Critical Thinking(not an aff. Just love their stuff)

History:
Living History. Books from the library. This is where I use Simple Charlotte Mason as a guide. The books are listed in age appropriate sections by era.

Literature
I use the Simply Charlotte Mason literature list as a guide as well. I get the books from the library or search Amazon for free downloads.

Math:
Teaching Textbooks. We have tried Saxon and Math U See. Teaching Textbooks seems to be the best for our family. The kids watch the cd on the computer and it teaches them as they figure the problems.

Science:
Apologia Biology. We have loved ALL of our Apologia science over the years. I have heard both good and not so good about their Biology. My kids aren’t going to an Ivy League College so this works for us. There is also the Living Science list. I will get these books from the library
