Putting Together a Homeschool Language Arts Curriculum

 

As I always say, one of the best advantages of homeschooling is being able to teach the way your kids learn. Choosing individualized resources yields great results when it comes to encouraging the joy of learning!

You can put together your own homeschool language arts curriculum using resources from the Homeschool Buyers Co-op.

Note: I was compensated for my time in writing this post, but the opinions are 100% my own. I was not required to post a positive review.

Homeschooling requires outside of the box thinking and that definitely extends to the curriculum we choose. There are so many options out there that it can be hard to narrow it down, especially when it comes to essentials like learning to read and write. I’ve found language arts curriculum at Homeschool Buyers Co-op that has worked well in our homeschool, as well as being budget-friendly.

Homeschool Buyers Co-op has an award-winning selection of language arts products, including curriculum for phonics, reading, writing, vocabulary, spelling and grammar.

Our Favorite Homeschool Language Arts Curriculum

We’ve tried our share of language arts curriculum over the years, but these are a few favorite resources that have been tried and true for us!

Grammar:

Fix It! Grammar is from a well-known name in homeschool language arts — Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). In just 15 minutes a day, your students (grades 3-12) can learn the grammar concepts they need for successful writing. It’s all done through fun stories that they read and correct. Each lesson includes four sections:

  • Learn It (explore the concept)
  • Fix It (find and fix the errors in the passage)
  • Discuss It (practical application)
  • Copy It (rewrite the correct passage into a notebook)

Literature:

Progeny Press offers literature guides from a Christian perspective. The Progeny Press mission statement outlines their commitment:

not to bring you only ‘safe’ fiction, but to teach literature that is well-written and that will help students develop and refine how they deal with man’s philosophies in relation to God’s word. Progeny Press also examines literary terminology and technique in good, cultural literature to equip students to understand the craft of writing and to enhance their joy of reading.

The literature guides are available in both print and pdf formats from Homeschool Buyers Co-op. There are 100+ titles across the age ranges of K-12. We’ve personally used the Anne of Green Gables, Treasure Island, and The Courage of Sarah Noble guides. You can check out all of the titles and read more details here.

Learn to Read/Phonics:

You probably recognize the name Explode the Code as a phonics-based learn to read program. Did you know there is an online version? You can cover books 1-8 in the series with multisensory online lessons! It’s ideal for new or struggling readers in the K-4 grade range.

My daughters also enjoyed using Reading Eggs online. The characters are fun and engaging. If your kids look forward to online game time, this could be a good alternative to “gameify” reading for them. You can save 25% at Homeschool Buyers Co-op.

Writing:

My girls love to write, as do I. We also love resources that embrace that inner spark of creativity and nurture it. Brave Writer does that for your youngest writers all the way through high school! There are so many options in this enriching language arts program.

I'm a reader, writer, dreamer, wife, and homeschooling mom of 3 girls. We take a relaxed, eclectic, Charlotte Mason-leaning, Montessori-ish, literature-rich, delight-directed, almost unschooling-at-times approach to learning. Lots of unit studies, field trips, and lapbooks, too. I like to blog about our learning adventures (plus faith and encouragement) at Embracing Destiny.
