a *great* mind

Hi, BasketballGirl! Many blessings to your grandmother for homeschooling you and your siblings! It's a sacrifice of love.

CTC math is online with short video lessons and a few questions. If you don't understand you can keep reviewing more questions to achieve mastery. One subscription works for the whole family. No grading needed by your grandmother.

I know some working homeschool mothers that use Monarch. I'm not personally familiar with it, but my understanding is it is a Christian online program.

My household uses Ambleside Online. We read a lot of great books, and I have my children narrate, or tell back, what they read.

I pray for your homescool journey! Do as much as you can to help your grandmother and trust God to provide. He's given you a heat mind to know Him and learn about His world.

Sorry-I didn’t review that. I’m not sure of a better curriculum. I was wondering if she possibly had a friend who could help.

JeanBeanM 2024-01-24 17:55

Basketball girl, I’m asking my grown kids for any advice or encouragement they have, as we were in the same situation as a family. Try to get back to you. Not sure of a better curriculum for this issue, unless your grandmother has a former homeschooling Mom with a little time on her hands.

Hello everyone. I was public schooled up to 2nd grade and then 3rd grade was half private school half homeschool and then 4th and up was homeschooled.
What curriculum does everyone use. So far I've used Abeka, Saxon Math (BJU), Math-U-See, Notgrass History, and Masterbooks.
I enjoy Masterbooks because I live with my grandmother and she's homeschooling me and my younger two siblings. My youngest sibling has lots of problems understanding his schoolwork so most of the day she's helping him and then is too tired to answer questions that I have. My younger sister also feels this way but she has videos for her classes so its easier for her. She also doesnt have a lot of time so my schoolwork often goes uncorrected for a few weeks before she looks at it. Is there a curriculum that would help me with this?

Hello all :)

Question 2023-05-22 18:04

Question 2023-04-20 17:48

hey yall i'm recruiting some people for the group BIBLE FUN FOR ALL/ feel free to join at your own risk

If I was to design a Christian homeschooling system, I would include the strengths of ACE, but add a detailed testing system to identify where a child has unique gifting, and then customize an advanced teaching programme to nurture those gifts.
That would include creative fields such as art and music.
It's interesting that Mozart was homeschooled, and had a musician father to teach him.
Also Akiane Kramarik was mostly homeschooled, and is probably the greatest painter alive today.
What do you think?

I did ACE (Accelerated Christian Education).
It was the only one available at the time (late 80s) in Australia. We were among the pioneers.
Looking back, the key strengths were:
1. Heavy emphasis on Bible memorization. Key verses were learned, and printed on every page of every book.
Also rewards were given for memorizing entire books of the Bible. The value of this is priceless.
2. Goal system. You had to learn to set your own goals.
3. The most important subjects, Spelling, English and Maths were designed very well.
4. Science had plenty of great information on the famous Christians who laid the foundations of Science (Newton, Faraday etc).
5. Literature got us to read some of the best books outside the Bible. eg. Missionary biographies etc

The biggest drawback was the strong patriotism, which was irrelevant for us. But I suppose that could be a good thing for Americans.

It would be interesting to hear from anyone doing ACE now. They have probably updated the curriculum many times. We did mostly 2nd and 3rd editions.

I am just going to a Christian School. So I don’t do most of that stuff.

Question 2023-04-04 19:11

i have gotten used to it

Jappel 2023-04-04 14:34

Being the oldest, I was the guinea pig for curriculums. I have done Abeka, Landmark, Life Packs, Switched on Schoolhouse (computer) and Masterbooks. I might have forgotten one but that just shows you that I have done multiple.
I have enjoyed trying new things. Getting used to a new curriculum can be difficult. I would have to say that my favorite was Masterbooks. Very good Christian foundation with lots of pics and good instructions.
What curriculums have you guys gone through?

Cali2022 2023-04-03 19:54


Jappel 2023-03-30 13:41

Hey guys. I am back. About Abeka I would completely agree with Question's explanation. I have done it and it is not for the faint of heart.

Cali2022 2023-03-29 21:58

Do u like it?

Question 2023-03-27 22:27

A home school curriculum that is usually said to be more rigorous, so some people love it some people hate it

Cali2022 2023-03-22 18:18

What is that?
