I am not sure if I am just starting early but is there anyone else who is searching out next years curriculum? For us we don't really start "next year" my plan is to school year round. Last year I started in May but I seem to be playing catch up with my 8 year olds work because I've been very relaxed lately. Currently both of my kids are doing Classical Conversations like I mentioned on a earlier post. Cameron also uses Teaching Textbooks and just finished the 3rd grade book and will be starting 4th grade TT in a week. We also have been using Rod & Staff for grammar. We started using Simply Grammarl but I slowly started focusing on R&S because it explains everything so simply. Next year I Cam will be doing grammar at CC. But I have been searching for a  Latin curriculum and I think for Spanish we will use Rosetta Stone. Art is a challenge for me because most of the time my kids want to paint I cant even find a paint brush. I think I will have to stock up on those and not let Emma use them as magic wands.
Emma is a different story, I have no idea what I am using for her in Kindergarten. I am tossed between Horizons phonics and math, ,Veritas press phonics and Sing spell read and write . I have looked into My Fathers World but it was lacking in some areas for her. Also Learning Language Arts through Lit and I didn't like it very much. I understand Kindergarten learning should still remain fun so SSR&W looks appealing. But I love Horizons just don't know if she will. Does anyone use any of these curriculum's? Please share your experiences.

  1. SSR&W is a very good curriculum but it has a lot of pieces and parts, so for me it was too much stuff to shuffle - I do like to use manipulatives/games but not every single day. I have the whole set if you would like to borrow and check out all that goes with it.
