We are going into our 2nd year of homeschooling. DS is going into 4/5 grade and DD is starting K. I have been looking extensively at various homeschool curriculums. We used Seton this past school year but I think I am looking for something a little more ‘fun’ now for a couple subjects (of course Religion we will stick w/ Seton).
I went to a homeschool fair (Christian, but not Catholic…I missed the Catholic one, it was pretty pricey) recently and looked at A Beka and a few other curriculums.
Basically I am wanting to know if any of you here have tried anything other than the Catholic programs. I found that A Beka seems much more kid friendly, more colorful, and just plain fun looking. Seton, Kolbe, and CHC just don’t look like they have as exciting ‘learn to read’ programs for Kinder. KWIM?
So who out there has used programs that weren’t ‘Catholic’? Of course I would use Seton (or one of the other Catholic ones) for most subjects for DD but I was looking mainly for an intriguing reading program which is what A Beka seems to have.:shrug: **
