Curriculum Resources

There is a vast amount of teaching resources out there! To help guide you in selecting what is best for your family at this time, we encourage you to read the section of The Guide to Homeschooling in Florida entitled "Homeschooling Options, Approaches, and Resources."  We suggest that you learn about different approaches to home education, research different curriculum resources, ask current homeschoolers about their curriculum choices, and then, after considering your child’s learning styles, choose an approach and/or curriculum. Be willing to adapt and/or change as you learn what works for you and your child. We suggest some resources below to start you in this process that you can find here in our local libraries.
