It’s time to start sharing curriculum! Today I am sharing our 2018-2019 large family homeschool curriculum choices. These are the subjects we do “one room schoolhouse style.” All of my children who are able participate with us when it comes to all of these subjects. We are using My Father’s World as sort of our spine, but I’m adding in lots of other things that I am so excited about!
