Our Curriculum

We strive for experiencing the extraordinary while still being enchanted by the everyday. Primarily, we are a unit study family with a Charlotte Mason flavor and a sprinkling of unschooling.

We use Five in a Row (FIAR) as our core curriculum at all levels through grade seven. In between our FIAR titles, we explore unit studies that are driven by student interest.

In the upper grades, we use a similar holistic approach to learning and use programs and curriculum which match that philosophy. We practice “project based homeschooling” and encourage our children to engage in their passions daily. Below you’ll find curriculum and resources that we have found most useful in our homeschooling over the last 8 years. (I will continue to update this page)

Swallows and Amazons- the best of reading aloud!

An ample dose of reading aloud- daily!

The Real Life of Decimals...

We use Life of Fred at all levels of math.
