Homeschool Curriculum 2012-2013

Well it’s about that time again, time to get ready to start a new school year. Are you ready? I am not.

Yeah, this used to be the organized homeschool room. Now it’s a layer of old, new, and miscellaneous stuff that just doesn’t belong.

My table may be a mess, but I do have our homeschool curriculum picked for the year. Take a look at my eclectic list and I’ll try to get a little more organized in the meantime.


It’s SO helpful when you’re teaching multiple students, at different ages and stages, to be able to do some learning together. That is one of the reasons I have chosen the following curriculums.

Tapestry of Grace Year 3 19th century history, literature, writing, reading, geography, and art.
Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology
BSF Our whole family will be attending Bible Study Fellowship and studying Genesis.
Fighter Verses We hope to memorize some of these this year along with our church family.

2nd Grade

My son, Joel, will be working his way through these books this year. He is a little young for second grade, so I will just take it at a pace that works for him.

Singapore Math 2A and 2B U.S. Edition
Abeka’s Phonics, Language, and Spelling
Dianne Craft Handwriting Program

3rd Grade

My daughter, Lydia, loves her Math and is excited to learn how to write cursive this year.

A Reason for Handwriting Level T
How to Study Your Bible for Kids by Kay Arthur

5th Grade

I can’t believe I have a 5th grader! Abigail will be improving her typing skills this year and hopefully typing more of her writing assignments.

Singapore Math 4B-5A U.S. Edition
Abeka Language and Spelling
Handwriting Proverbs
Jesus–to Eternity and Beyond!: John 17-21 by Kay Arthur

I hope to review each of these curriculums this coming year and share why I chose them. What would you like to see first?

  1. Looks like you have a great plan and are ready to go! Enjoy the organizing of your room in the meantime. We will be using the Apologia book this year too and are looking forward to it.
    Have a great year,


  2. It’s nice to see someone else using Singapore Math. We’ve been using it for quite a while and really like it. Hope you have a great year!


  3. I’ve heard Tapestry of Grace on several blogs, but really don’t know much about what it is, so I’d love to read a review of that one. We use the same as you do for Science and Handwriting.


  4. I am a first year homeschooler, and I have a lovely schoolroom- decorated and organized and ready to go. I KNOW that it will look just like that picture before you know it! That’s what happens to rooms that get used and lived in by children and mamas!

    You have a great line up for everyone. Abeka does have a great language/phonics program. I’m would love to see what you think of TOG. have a great year of learning!
