    The absolute best homeschool curriculum

    The best curriculum is one that is relaxed, and free of high pressure. It is an environment that is enjoyable, and motivating. One way of keeping it stress free is to not schedule more than is easy to do in a day. Plan on the basics like Bible, Phonics, Spelling, and Math, then there is plenty of time to go at your own pace on the other subjects, and if not the child has still learned the basics.
