I’ve been getting several emails wondering what our 2013-2014 homeschool curriculum choices are! And even though I feel like our summer just started, I guess it’s about that time again!

As usual during our summer break I’ve been planning like crazy, and trying to get everything in order.

AND…I am trying one new thing this year thanks to my English forum, so thank you all for participating, I hope it helped you out as much as it did me!


So without further ado, here is our curriculum line up for the 2013-2014 school year!


Teeny Tot: Preschool letter of the Week with some K4 Kindergarten mixed in. I don’t want to do full Kindergarten with her just yet. She’s , so I’m going to slowly mix in K4 items as she’s ready.


Tinkerbell (2nd Grade)



Turbo (4th grade) & Strawberry Shortcake (5th Grade)

So that’s it! Our 2013-2014 curriculum lineup!

P.S. We’re in the process of moving, so we’ve actually started school a bit early this year so we can take a couple weeks off here shortly to move. I’ll keep you all posted on our new school area, and moving adventures!

Need more ideas? Check out the awesome curriculum available on my website!

  1. Hi Erica, I was wondering how the Wordly Wise and Rod and Staff English was working for the kids and you this year. I am struggling to find something to help my son understand Grammar we have discovered that the curriculum that I have isn’t helping him grasp the concepts. I would be greatly appreciate any advise on this subject! Thank you!

  2. Hi All,
    I’m new to the site but wanted to offer a suggestion as many are undecided on a choice for Grammar. We started using Shurley English last year and I’m amazed at the progress of my kids! It was very easy, painless–even fun, actually, and to the point. It excels at teaching a student to use question and answer flows to dissect a sentence and label the parts, and also covers vocabulary, punctuation, tenses, irregulars, dictionary skills, alphabetizing, editing, and writing (outlining, revising, persuasive, descriptive and expository paragraphs, essays, autobiographies, various types of letters, journals. It may be worth a look! Blessings to you all 🙂

  3. I have a second grader too, and we are currently not doing a formal writing/composition curriculum. Do you do one with your second grader? I did not see one listed. I am torn between starting one this early or just waiting a couple of grades.

  4. Hey Erica!

    Question on the LEGO Robotics Simple Mechanisms….
    How did you order that? I know..could be a no brainer…
    Is it as simple as clicking on your link that takes you straight to order the Simple M pack? Is that it? Cos the video they have next to it is AWESOME. I just want what they have…how do I make sure I get that..lol
    Is that what you use too?

    Very Random…I know, sorry..


  5. Hi Erica,
    I notice that you use some Abeka language books without doing the whole curriculum. Do you buy the teachers guides for them? If not how do you go about using the workbooks effectively?
    Thank you in advance 🙂

  6. Hi!
    I am wondering how long you have used the WriteShop writing curriculum? Do you heartily recommend it? I am about to teach writing for our local co-op and wondered if this curriculum would be a good idea.
