I am a new homeschool mom of a current 8 and 3 year old. We wont be starting bookwork things until next year when they’re 9 and 4 however due to finances, but I will be doing sooo much research and working with my girls in other ways.
I am having a really hard time finding and choosing which curriculum to use for History, Language Arts and Science. I REALLY loved the look of level 1 History, level 2 Language arts and Level 1 Science from Bookshark but now I’m worried about it.
I’ve been seeing comments and have gotten replies on how bookshark is actually terrible with wrong history information I guess, the content is dry or doesn’t go in depth very well and just omits evolution etc. entirely.
We’re not a religious family but not hardcore secular either. I’ve tried asking in secular groups on facebook but literally find the people in them to be rude. Hopefully it’s different here.
I also really liked the look of The Good and the Beautiful Science Units but feel there’s not a lot to them.
Anyway any suggestions for awesome faith-neutral or secular History, Language Arts and science for a 9 and 4 year old would be much appreciated.
We’re going to be using Explode the Code, Wordly Wise, Handwriting Without Tears and Math-U-See for the rest of our curriculum.
- Also I’d like to point out we do seem to be leaning toward the Eclectic Charlotte Mason Method of homeschooling and just really love good informative but visually attractive books. Not so much huge blocks of text without images to go with.
And I am going through the community posts looking up key words to find more information and reviews.
