We are so excited to be kicking off our school year next week! In my last post I announced that we are homeschooling for this next school year. Still so crazy to be saying that!! We can’t wait to get things started! I have had lots of questions about material we are using and how we are structuring things, so I wanted to share what we have chosen for our family!

I have spent hours and hours watching every YouTube video and reading every blog post about 5th grade homeschool curriculum to see what I thought would be best for our family. Rather than buying one full curriculum from a certain place, we chose to buy certain things from different companies. I will also say that I am more of a “free spirit” when it comes to this type of thing. Although I do have a plan in place, I read plenty of things saying “don’t outline your whole year because you never know what will work and not work for you”. I have an idea of what we are going to be doing, but we will be taking things week by week. Especially if my daughter has a peaked interest in a certain topic, then we will run with that and get more in depth with that specific topic/idea.
The Good and The Beautiful is a very popular place for curriculum. They have a lot of free downloads right now which I think is wonderful. We downloaded the Science unit from them and I purchased the Handwriting Workbook. We are really excited about both!
BJU Press is another popular place for curriculum. This is who we will be doing out English with and we got the English 5 Subject Kit. To go along with our English, I also bought these on Amazon just as some more fun things to do. I got one grammar workbook and one writing workbook.
I saw this Brain Quest workbook and we are also going to be using the pages in to when they apply to what we are learning about. The pages look super fun and I’m excited to include this.
For Social Studies we are going to be working through this 180 Days of Social Studies workbook.
Math we chose to go with Math Mammoth. I am excited to give this a try!!
I am also going to put on the list below other school supply things I bought for our homeschool room!
