Do we have any homeschoolers here?

Mom Talk is a group for moms to come for advice and should be looked at as a more supportive community than Mom Confessions. Those who aren’t here for drama but want to connect with other moms or have questions about parenting can hang out here.

I am. I have three kids. I want a full curriculum. We did well on our first review but I want a really good boxed set.
I don’t use a boxed set myself, are you looking for secular or Christian based material?
Have you ever checked out Timberdoodle? I love the stuff on that site it has packages and a plan but it costs so much to ship to Canada I can’t justify ordering it.
I think Timberdoodle is great but it is out of my price range. I'm looking into Time4Learning.

We use ABeka. It is a very thorough boxed set in my opinion. It is very Christian, but that works for our family.

We are in our 7th year of homeschooling. It works for us. We are a very structured environment because that is what we have found works best for our kiddo's.

We seem to be struggling with language arts this year with both kids (5th and 6th grade). Youtube seems to be my friend as I am trying desperately to figure out what they are doing, so that I can help them get through this.

My kids are not being homeschooled, but I have been looking for one. I did find one that I fell in love with, however, it cost more than my mortgage.
Look into acellus.com its only 9month per homeschool student.
This is one I've actually never heard of but I'm interested. Is it secular? I may use that for our last year if it is. It looks kind of good. I kind of wish I had found that a few years ago. It would have saved me some major high school headaches. LOL

Are you doing the Charlotte Mason Method? I see Ambleside. We used that once too.

I do not, but I'm curious as to how you guys build curricula and such.
I just bought a base curriculum that I work off of. We use living books for the most part. We have to mish-mash everything together because we are Canadian and Atheists. Our math program is the same one the schools use here.

Resources I use are:

I’m a secular(Atheist actually) homeschool mom; my daughter was removed from ps almost ten years ago.
We both have some ADD, so I buy all materials ready to go, piecing it together by subject.
My daughter is now in high school. She likes some structure. She suffers from depression, anxiety, OCD, and some health issues. She has Aspergers and was a total bully-magnet.
