2020-2021 Homeschool Curriculum Choices for 6th, 3rd, and Kindergarten

We are halfway through our year-round homeschool year and are so excited about all of the curriculum changes we’ve made. They have been the perfect fit for our family and have really helped us find balance in our days.

We started off the year with My Father’s World: Creation to the Greeks. We have used My Father’s World for years and have always loved it very much. We started this particular curriculum last March, after completing a year and a half of Exploring Countries and Cultures. We enjoyed the Biblical feasts and the activities that went along with the curriculum through November of this year.

We didn’t get to finish it all the way through though. Things have shifted a bit here in our home, and we found that it was no longer working for us in the way I had hoped.

For one, our 12 year-old son was struggling to keep focused with the group readings and wanted to spend more time working independently. He wanted more control of his homeschool responsibilities and didn’t want to wait around for his sisters.

I considered continuing Creation to the Greeks with my 9 year-old and 5 year-old daughters but didn’t think that the content moving forward was as age appropriate. So after much prayer and pondering, I finally decided to let it go and go back to the drawing board.

Here’s what we decided on and how it has been working for us.
