Driving myself crazy looking for homeschool programs.

Online (Calvert) or boxed curriculum

What do you ladies suggest for curriculum?

Kindergarten next year and have been going thru "teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons" will be done in about 2 months. She is doing well with it.

Hi Deniselynn! :)  Welcome! :)

I would just continue doing what you are doing now.  You can do a lot just by utilizing the internet and your local library. On the interne, there are quite a few websites that are free for full curriculums.

Have you thought about whether you want a seculuar program or do you lean towards a more religious faith based curriculum?

After more research I want a program that allows me to teach but provides a certificate at the end saying they completed the grade. It doesn't matter to me religious I can always find bible lessons. More importantly I do not want common core.

First off, I apologize for my grammatical errors. YIKES! lol

Secondly, finding a curriculum that is not Common Core aligned is not that easy to find but can be done. I believe there are some websites that offer free curriculum but am not sure if they issue any certificates at the end. I write all of my own curriculum. I do know that you can buy whole curriculum or buy subjects singularly.

Another thing you should keep in mind is how everyone learns and then base your research of curriculum on that as much as certifications and finances.

You might want to check on your states view on testing homeschoolers. About half are talking about testing all kids with standard tests when they no longer have waivers for common core.

I've thought about making my own curriculum. I think I am leaning towards Abeka thru CLASS. Provides the program at a reasonable price along with certification. Have you heard of it?

Actually, I haven't heard of this. 

What does it entail? 

 I would say that if you can stay comfortable getting this program, then go for it.
