Ever buy a curriculum and then kind of want to use it to do your own thing, but feel guilty about it?

No guilt!  Homeschoolers are known for doing our own things LOL

There are parents who use Saxon Math as independent study, secular Sonlight and Charlotte Mason users, boxed curriculum followers who add lapbooks, even unschooling children who choose textbooks sometimes.  Ahh, the freedom of homeschooling!!

One of the fears new homeschool parents express is they fear they will miss something causing the child problems in the future. As a result many start out clinging to the public school approach using their textbooks, worksheets, ext. But eventually they start creating their own curriculum, and only using prepared resources when adventagious. Keep in mind, independent studies reveal home educated children out perform their public schooled counterparts, so we are donig something right.

 

Understanding the different methods used by homeschoolers is very encouraging and helps you get started in creating your own curriculum.  This link explains.

Remember, curriculum is a tool not your master. You decide if and how you want to use it. Do what's best for you and your children's learning style. That's the freedom we have as homeschoolers!
