We are heading into our 18th!! year of homeschooling. We’ve successfully graduated two daughters, ages 22 & 20, and they now work for my husband. Our students are going into 11th (ds), 9th (dd), and 5th (dd). I love planning for a new year and putting all of the curriculum pieces together. I still have to work out extra-curriculars, but our core subjects are ready to go.
Here is our 2019-2020 Homeschool Curriculum Plan:
~*History*~ group work
We have always done history as a group, with different levels of assignments. I usually piece it together using various free history resources. I came across a fantastic (not free) resource during my research that will be the anchor of our history plan this year – The Giant American History Timeline. I bought the pdf version from the website. I will assign a few of these timeline notebook pages each week, along with books to read and a variety of online activities (videos, games, articles). Are you interested in me sharing what we use as we go along? If YES, leave me a comment.
These are some of the helpful resources I’m using:
- TruthQuest American History I
- U Read Thru History free curriculum plan
- Fields of Daisies American History free curriculum plan
~*Writing*~ group work
My gang does not care too much for boring writing assignments that have no purpose, but they willingly do the activities in The Writer’s Jungle by Brave Writer. Check out my review if you want to learn more about this guide for teaching writing.
My girls and I will be studying I & II Corinthians through Community Bible Study. I’m not sure what my son will be doing yet, but I might have him work through this Basic Apologetics course from the C. S. Lewis Institute. I would take the info from the study guide and put it into worksheet format. I’m also considering 52 Major Stories of the Bible.

I would love to win the Christian Book Giveaway. We are going to start homeschooling in a couple of weeks and I still have some curriculum to purchase. Money is tight in our house, so this would be a true blessing.
