Resources for homeschooling families

General Homeschool Curricula Resources

Moving Beyond the Page is a literature unit study based curriculum. They offer complete curricula packages for preschool through middle school, but they also offer individual units. You can purchase a unit with a theme that will include literature based around that theme. Or you can purchase a unit that is based on a specific literature book. We’ve loved these! The questions and activities are designed to encourage critical thinking. This isn’t a Christian worldview-based curriculum, but it remains fairly neutral.

Schoolhouse Teachers- This awesome resource from The Old Schoolhouse has literally hundreds of classes for the whole family available for one monthly subscription fee. I’ve reviewed Schoolhouse Teachers here.

Compass Classroom offers video-based and online classes for history, economics, Bible, Latin, and more. We’ve used quite a few of their resources including Economics for Everybody and Word Up, a vocabulary program that focuses on Greek and Latin roots. I’ve liked everything I’ve seen. We haven’t used the online classes, but I love that they offer a monthly subscription to their streaming classes so that you can pay one price for everything.

Science Homeschool Resources

Apologia is probably best known for their amazing science resources- which is why I put them in this category- but they also have great Bible curricula, worldview curricula, and other books and resources for homeschool families. We’ve used their elementary and upper level sciences, the notebooks that go with the science books, and the elementary worldview curriculum. I can definitely recommend all.

Mobicip is a program that helps you to monitor screen time and make sure that kids are using their electronics for school and not for playtime. Because computers and tablets are often a central part of homeschooling now, it’s hard to avoid having kids use them. But this program will allow you to block apps and keep track of where kids are spending their time.
