Why is it so fun to read about another mom’s homeschool curriculum?

I love seeing what other homeschoolers are using for their kids!

If you enjoy it too, here’s a peek at our homeschool curriculum for preschool through junior high.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you probably already know that my husband and I are blessed with five kids, who are all school age this year.

(You can check out my other posts on homeschooling preschool through junior high right here.)

Here’s what homeschooling looks like for us in each of these grades: 

Preschool: 

I devoted an entire post to homeschooling a preschooler, so I won’t unpack all that particulars again.  (You can read it here, if you missed it.)

I will say, I absolutely love the sweet little preschool years!

Our youngest child, Caleb, is four years old he loves doing school along with his older siblings.

This year, we’re enjoying Time4Learning preschool, along with Rod and Staff preschool workbooks and lots of hands-on learning games and toys.

Caleb loves his preschool workbooks! This is our first year to use Rod and Staff for preschool, and so far we are loving it.

If Caleb keeps up his current pace with his preschool, I plan to start him in My Father’s World kindergarten in January.

I’m a big fan of Write Through the Bible!

Fourth Grade: 

Our oldest son, Keith, is in fourth grade this year.

Like most boys, Keith is super active and prefers physical activity over academics. 😀 

Here’s what Keith is doing for fourth grade:

Our oldest daughter, Amy, is thirteen and in her last year of junior high this year.

This girl is an avid reader and keeps me on my toes as a homeschooling mom!

Here’s what Amy is doing for eighth grade this school year:

Amy is also enrolled in Karate this year, and is in her seventh year with piano lessons.
