It’s curriculum buying season and the number one question on everybody’s mind is: “What should I choose?” I talk a lot about curriculum on my blog but today I wanted to specifically address what we need to know and how we can create a brief, big-picture “plan” of our days to help us identify, before we buy, if a program is going to work for us or not. Choosing curriculum is not easy, but it’s not impossible either!
What you need to know before choosing curriculum
Today’s episode is full of advice, practical tips and strategies to help you begin to identify both your homeschool vision and how various curricula fits with that. We talk about budgeting, scheduling, all in one programs vs. individual programs, and how you can begin to organize your plan for the next year! Whether you are a homeschool veteran looking for curriculum for a new season or brand new to the homeschool scene, this episode will walk you through choosing curriculum that works!
