The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum List of 2017


The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum ListThe Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum List came out of a discussion I had with fellow homeschooling moms. Every year we struggle to find a homeschool curriculum list that provides both breadth and depth and includes resources to keep our kids engaged. Not only do they get bored easily, but we want them to have a well-rounded education. It hard to find new and unique products these days, it’s also hard to find a comprehensive Homeschool Curriculum List. So, we put together The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum List just for that very reason. These products are some that we use in our homeschooling, and/or have come highly recommended from other homeschooling families. We hope that you will spend some time getting to know the companies on this homeschool curriculum list. They are all small businesses and your support of them is not only greatly appreciated, it gives you the chance to try something new and innovative with your kids. The products in The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum List are sure to get your kids excited about learning this year. Have any suggestions for the Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum List? Please email Info@HowToHomeschool.net. We are always looking for suggestions.

Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum List – Reading & Writing

Go to the TOP of the Homeschool Curriculum List


2b Totally LiterateThe Red Well-Read Reader (TRWRR), the central product of 2B, has 361 rhyming stories. Each story has one predominant rhyme. Collectively, the stories systematically cover the entire English language, beginning with the short a, then the long a, and so forth through twenty more vowel classifications.

Because decoding remains easy throughout, there is no point where a child feels overwhelmed and gives up trying to learn. On the other hand, because the stories are written in part in a rather highbrow fashion, no youngster (no matter how smart) will grasp all the implied meanings nestled between the lines. TRWRR never talks down to children, whether they be 5 or 105 years of age.  For this reason, parents, foreigners learning English as a second language, and adults just now learning to read―all should appreciate the sophisticated content, as much as, if not more so, than do youngsters.

2B has over a dozen more learning products, all of which are super fun and extremely efficacious. To varying degrees they provide hours, weeks, months, and years of opportunity for parents to impart their knowledge and wisdom to their charges while teaching them how best to use the English language efficiently and effectively.

The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum ListBethlehem Books – In 1994 we launched our books apostolate with The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow, the first of more than 100 print books we have published over the years. Many of them, including Rolf, are still in print. We specialize in reprinting tried and true historical fiction, adventure tales, biographies, and family stories that help children and young adults expand their imagination and understand the past.

Years of educating our children at home acquainted us with libraries and second-hand stores, showing us a wealth of good children’s literature published during the last fifty years.  To our pleased surprise our appreciation developed into an actual “rescue mission” of reprinting a few of these good books, which rest on the solid moral values of a Christian Culture.

Our goal has always been to provide as much good family reading as we could afford and so we have entered the world of digital books, converting many of our print books into electronic format—eBook versions for sale side-by- side with their physical counterparts. At the same time we have introduced over 60 brand new titles in eBook-only format for our readers’ enjoyment.

From all of us at Bethlehem Books we wish our friends and readers many happy hours of reading literature to feed the imagination.

The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum ListEasy Grammar Systems – When Dr. Wanda Phillips is asked why her texts are popular, her answer is that they help children to learn easily.  As the author of Easy Grammar series, Daily GRAMS series, Easy Grammar Ultimate Series, and Easy Writing, Phillips is well-known for incorporating a prepositional approach, an “expanded building-block” paradigm, and cyclical learning, all to promote mastery.

Dr. Phillips wrote Easy Grammar texts (Grades 2-6 and Plus) to teach concepts. She first introduces common prepositions and deleting prepositional phrases to help students determine subject, verb, agreement, etc. Phillips is also noted for introducing concepts at a basic level and building for understanding–in just two-three lessons daily.  She has also added unit reviews/unit tests and cumulative reviews/cumulative tests to augment mastery.

Wanda designed Daily GRAMS texts (Grades 3-7) as daily, 5-10 minute reviews (180 lessons).  She developed a consistent format focusing on capitalization (#1), punctuation (#2), grammar and other concepts (#3/4), and sentence combining (#5) for improved quality of writing.  The process of reviewing concepts cyclically (rotationally) enhances mastery. Phillips recommends starting each class period with a review lesson.

 Dr. Phillips’s newest series, Easy Grammar Ultimate Series (Grades 8-12) provides daily teaching by following the same format as Daily GRAMS. The 180 lessons provide high-school students with continued learning and application in daily, 10-minute lessons and have been designed cyclically.  This allows students more class time for literature and writing.

Kids Times Tables – Children have been tested before and after learning the times tables using the Rhymes Tables Times Tables™ system. Prior to the training they averaged 18 correct answers out of 30. This is a reflection of whatever system, schooling, math help, or exposure the individual child had with the times tables. After an hour of math help using the Kids Times Tables method, they averaged 29 out of 30! Kids Times Tables

is an effective way to teach and get results teaching the times tables. Many parents have been able to teach the system in one hour. For many kids it is often best to teach the system in three 20-minute sessions due to short attention spans. Even if the student has special learning needs, we think you’ll be impressed with the results because this system seems to capture their special, creative abilities. We have found that math help that is fun and easy, is more effective and long-lasting.

BrainWare – The capacity to learn is different from the ability to learn.  Everyone has the ability to learn, but our learning capacity – how fast we assimilate new information, how deeply we comprehend material, and how effectively we recognize patterns – can be developed.

People used to believe that learning capacity (or intelligence) is fixed.  Today, we know from neuroscience research that it can be developed.

BrainWare Learning Company offers tools that help develop learning capacity through the identification and training of cognitive skills – skills such as attention, memory, visual processing, executive functions, and more.

If you are seeking to better understand and develop your child’s cognitive capacity, you can start with these helpful links.

BrainWare SAFARI.  Award-winning BrainWare SAFARI is the leading cognitive training program in education.  Grounded in four decades of clinical collaboration and incorporating the best practices of video-game technology, this is, as one homeschool parent says, “a program that should be a staple in every home.”

Mindprint Learning.  This cognitive assessment is scientifically valid and easy to administer, with a deeply insightful report that explains your child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses and provides tools and strategies to support them in their learning.

SkateKids and Ramps To Reading.  This cognitively based approach to literacy combines sound neuroscience and reading skills, focusing on comprehension.  It looks and feels like a video game and children call it “awesome.”

We look forward to having the opportunity to helping you support your child in achieving their potential.

The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum ListCharacter First Education – “Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness.” – Anne Frank

Besides studying what each character trait means, you will also have the opportunity to apply it directly to life with 5 “I Wills” that remind us what it means to live a life of character.

The Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum List

Character is Higher Than Intellect – Too many children perform poorly in school as they want to be entertained rather than taught; lack a work ethic, are bullies, belong to gangs or other anti-social groups; commit more serious crimes at younger ages, etc. To aid teachers and parents in teaching young people strong values so that they can make responsible decisions, Character is Higher Than Intellect was written and developed by an educator who is also a parent. It is based upon a values hierarchy of five levels:

  1. Self-Discipline
  2. Responsible Behavior
  3. Honesty to Self
  4. Honesty to Others
  5. Reverence for Life and the Creator of Life

These five core values encompass all values, form a hierarchy and bear an interrelationship one with another. The goal of the curricula is to teach learners analytical thinking skills and human performance skills so that they build frameworks of thinking patterns and behavior patterns upon which to base appropriate decisions and that these frameworks become strong enough to enable them to make responsible decisions even when the umbilical cord of influence between them and their parents, teachers, or leaders are severed.

The lessons are designed to utilize a variety of powerful teaching/learning fundamentals to achieve this goal in such a manner that students beg to participate in the activities. It has K-6 plus a Teen level; and parent manuals for ages 3-7, 8-12, 13-18.
