2015/2016 Curriculum

     We’re eclectic homeschoolers. It wasn’t always that way. Years ago, I used prepackaged curriculum and stuck to every piece unwaveringly. I wasn’t flexible and that created burn-out. In response to that overwhelming feeling, and partially in an effort to learn about flexibility, we tried a couple years of unschooling. Not quite my cup of tea, so I looked at and incorporated Robinson Curriculum and Eclectic Education Series. As time went on, we discovered that this style wasn’t quite what we wanted or desired for our children. It has taken our larger family several years to find what works for each individual child and our family as a whole. The answer comes in eclectic homeschooling; we take what works and fits from all of the different methods per subject. As a result, our curricular choices will differ from others in both big & little ways. What works for us won’t necessarily work for others and that is okay. If we wanted a one-size-fits-all style of education, we would send our children to a traditional school!
