Homeschool Resources

If you are new to homeschooling, welcome! This is my one stop shop for linking all our curriculum ideas and homeschool resources for preschool and early elementary. We have personally used everything listed at one point or another.

We have used different curriculums for different subjects over the years, so I’ve tried to organize things by both subject and by grade level.

If you are brand new to homeschooling, I recommend beginning with my posts How to start homeschooling for the beginner as well as my list of Pros and Cons of Homeschooling.

If you are leaving any kind of traditional school setting to homeschool, here’s everything you need to know about deschooling before you jump into homeschooling.

We currently have a first grader, second grader, preschooler, and newborn so I will continue to add and update this homeschool resource page as the kids grow!
