If you were to try one complete curriculum with 3 kids (will be ages 4, 6, and 10) who all learn in all styles and are all in the gifted range, what would you choose and why? (cross-posted)

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a complete curriculum. 

Even the most pricey boxed curriculum will not be enough. 


Me personally I just piece it all together from textbooks I find at thrift stores. I also use work books, internet sources and the library.

 I don't believe such a thing exists, I have never known of a homeschooler that used one curriculum for all of their children & had the whole thing work great for all of them!

The only thing I could think of is the Charlotte Mason approach and have them all do their own math.

No such thing. Each curriculum has its own strengths and weaknesses.

No such thing.  Even "boxed curriculum" will not give you everything you need.

Memoria Press (I have to caveat that I would sub out their religion in favor of a Catholic one, and I would sub out their math - I do not care for Rod and Staff).

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

We love using A Beka. but my 12 year old is in the 7th grade and we just started the 4 year old kindergarten with my 2nd daughter. I have no idea how it will work when the boys (2 years old and 7 months old) start working on "real curriculum".
