I just became a 'legal' homeschooler. I will be homeschooling my 13 yr old daughter (pray for me LOL) and I would love to know what curriculums you all use.

We prefer more hands experience rather than sitting in front of a pc for all 'class' work. I have looked into KONOS and the curric from our school district and neither seemed right for us.

Any advice, websites or info would be greatly appreciated!

Have you considered cyberschool? The curriculum is provided. I'll pray for you! I'm a certified HS teacher but would never want to homeschool. That being said, my youngest is 13, in 8th grade and is in his second year of cyberschool. We both love it!

Homeschooling is a LOT of work! Good luck and have fun with it. It's very hard being both mom and a child's teacher. I like being a Learning Coach and not the teacher. A lot less stressful and no push/pull going back and forth between two important roles.

I admire what you are doing and hope you find the curriculum that suits you and your daughter best! If you're searching for curriculums, consider checking out the cyberschool ones, too, in order to cover all bases.

Congratulations. I homeschooled my 3 boys. You will have a wonderful experience and you will find you may want to pray for the children in the system instead. They really need your prayers.

I tried various programs and curricula with my children. I would not spend too much money in the beginning until you know which way of learning you will enjoy the most. I do think math and the understanding of math is important, and how to write a really great paper. I haven't purchased curricula in a very long time, as my 15yo is using leftovers and handme downs.

I don't especially like KONO's, but that's my opinion. I do like The Well Trained Mind, but I liked her first book the best, and I do use that one for a resource. I do like Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum, but that's a Catholic resource and I am Catholic and we have a great Catholic church, but there is not a school associated with it nearby. I like Tapestry of Grace, but I bought the orginal edition and use that with my own resources. I have also tried Calvert, American School, a few online schools that I can't remember the name of right now.
I have used Bob Jones books, and Rod and Staff. I have not used Abeka, but I've heard good things about it.
My kids have learned a lot, and had a lot of fun in the process. I think at the college level, you will see your efforts have paid off with their ability to handle the work, and the attitude they have toward college.

If you have any questions about a curricula, I may be able to help, but my opinions could be outdated by now.
