Sometimes if feels that homeschool life was simpler back 20+ years ago. Fewer options back then seemed to make for easier choices. Now there's so many options you can't possibly use all the stuff that you'd like to try. A lot of this old school stuff is still great even today. I think they just get pushed into the shadows of the new.
What I remember being popular 20+ years ago:
Spelling Power (although I could never implement it)
Learning Language Arts Through Literature (I'm thinking the old ones with the different colored covers for each one)
Primary & Intermediate Language Lessons
Igniting Your Writing
Story Starters by Karen Andreola
Moving with Math
Professor B Math
La Clase Divertida
Art Adventures at Home
Home Science Adventures
Singapore Science (I remember when this was new and nearly impossible to get...it was like buying on the black market to get the teacher's manual)
Trail Guide to World and US Geography
Around the World in 180 Days
Astronauts to Zippers
Hooked on Phonics
Lapbooks were poplular...
Then there's "Newer old school" like Math Mammoth, RightStart Math, Great Science Adventures (these were new and all the rage back in the day).
My all time favorites, that I would still use today if I had the opportunity, would be:
Mountainwood Talking Letters
These still give me warm fuzzies...
