ack in 2009, my friend Cheryl of Copperswife and I did a whole series on homeschool curriculum that we called Marvelous Mondays. I don't think any other series on Preschoolers and Peace has been more popular or referenced more times. And lately I've been asked to update the posts, so yes! That's what we're going to do.
ou can reference the 2009 Marvelous Monday Math Curriculum post here. I will likely be reiterating our love for certain curricula that has held up here over the years, so revisiting those posts is a good idea. There are affiliate links where appropriate.
We still use Rod and Staff math for the elementary grades. Yep, they are workbooks and textbooks, but as I said back then, the books are rigorous and very straightforward, thorough in scope, and extremely affordable. If texts work for you, go for it, guilt free! If you want to steer away from them, go for it, guilt free!
We also still use and love Teaching Textbooks in junior high and high school (starting with pre-algebra), but one of our students prefers to use Khan Academy exclusively. My husband is his "coach" and has set up the tracking system that Khan provides for free. We took the number of lessons in the subject (currently, geometry) and divided by the number of school days and that became his schedule.
Need online classes that are live and hold kids accountable? We're using pre-algebra at Currclick and it's a great load off my mind!
