Welcome back to our Back to School Survival Series! We are thrilled you are here.
Have you ever considered homeschooling without buying curriculum? I’ve been homeschooling for 6 years, and never once have I purchased a curriculum. Let me tell you how!
I don’t have anything against purchased curriculum, I’ve just never done it. Why? First and foremost, when I was starting out I had No Idea buying a curriculum was even a thing. So I planned our first year and it went swimmingly. After that, I kept reading on homeschool blogs and social media about people who had purchased a curriculum only to find it didn’t fit their family, so they were diligently searching for a new one. Sounded like more money than I had to spend.
But my main reason? I love planning our school year myself. I love doing the research, finding and/or making up worksheets and notebooking pages and projects, seeking books to help us along… all of it. And I really don’t think it’s any harder than searching through several curriculum sites trying to pick something someone else put together. It’s just a different kind of research.
