I've received many phone calls recently from parents searching for the "best homeschool curriculum."
One of the most important things to keep in mind, regarding a homeschool curriculum, is that homeschooling is NOT "school at home." Homeschooling is a wonderfully enjoyable lifestyle. When you view it as a natural part of everyday living and learning, it will provide highly successful results for your children and your family.
When parents try to turn homeschooling into "school at home" -- with textbook readings, quizzes, tests, endless worksheets -- the benefits of homeschooling quickly fizzle out, resulting in boredom and disinterested children. And, as we know, when children are bored and disinterested, they do not learn.
For the parents who call or e-mail me, seeking the "best homeschool curriculum," I suggest several ideas for them. One suggestion is: The best homeschool curriculum is right outside your door. Step outside and enjoy nature's own Homeschool Curriculum Activities.
Or try some of our Free Daily Homeschool Curriculum Activities here. Just look for the Free Daily Hands-On Activities (beside the red-and-blue hands) on the Home page of our Everything Homeschooling site!
You'll quickly be on your way to an enjoyable, educational homeschool experience that your children will enjoy and learn from!
