Before you think about your curriculum spend some time working out how you plan to homeschool for this will effect your curriculum choices.
I can’t tell you exactly what to teach but I can guide you in the right direction.
The wonderful thing about homeschooling is that it’s not about what to teach and when to teach it. It’s far more fluid and as a homeschooler you get to go with the flow. That’s what so wonderful.
However I do understand that gaps in education are a concern for many of us and that is why having a general outline of what to teach can help ease our fears, especially in the early years.
When you first start homeschooling I think it’s a great idea to use a scope and sequence that will help you get a feel for the types of resources that can work well for your child’s age group.
If you would like to use the Australian National Curriculum as a resource when planning your curriculum here are a few ideas that will help you incorporate it into your homeschool.
Next I suggest looking at our curriculum ideas for each grade.
Depends on what you want to buy.
The Book Depository is an online bookseller that sells from the UK. I buy a lot through these people. You usually get the books within a week to ten days. You get free postage and a good price.
Fishpond are an Australian and New Zealand online bookseller who also provide free postage. If you want to find Australian books these are usually the best people to buy from online. Overseas books can sometimes take longer than the Book Depository but the price is usually the same.
Christianbook.com also sells a large amount of homeschool curriculum. They have many of the Christian titles that are not available on other sites. Their prices are very good BUT but the postage can be high. If you keep your order under $30 then you only pay $10.00 postage. I usually get my order in less than two weeks.
Currclick 's motto is curriculum in a click. You can buy small lessons for your children on nearly any topic. They sell ebooks so you can get your products immediately. Many of the resources on this site are written by other homeschooling parents.
