Last in our series on ensuring your homeschool can survive in a financial crisis, I shared three free literature-based curriculums. But, each of those assume that you have an internet connection available. And sometimes, that just isn’t possible. So today we’re going to look at two inexpensive homeschool curriculums to have around either as your main curriculum or to use as your backup plan.
Both of these curricula are literature-based curriculum that use mostly public domain works (which are included) for the bulk of the curriculum. Both are on CD. And both use the 3R approach to learning, which means that they focus on Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic (math), with History and Science covered via living books/literature.
The two curricula are Robinson Curriculum and Accelerated Achievement (also known as A2 A-squared). During my search for a backup curriculum, I looked heavily at both of these. There a lot of similiarities, but there are differences as well. Personally I chose Robinson Curriculum, while a good friend of mine chose A2.
Being that I’ve chosen Robinson, I’m obviously biased about those differences, so I’ll leave it up to you to decide which might work best for your family and budget.
But I do recommend checking out both curriculums as low-cost (cheap) homeschool alternative that will still give your children a wonderful education.
Have experience with either Robinson Curriculum or A2? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
