There are many different types of schooling at home curriculum packages that you can choose from. Donít worry if you donít find any one that you feel perfectly matches your home teaching style. In fact, many home school parents use a combination of several different packages that they have, over time, modified and tailored to meet their specific familyís needs. What you donít want to do is try to force a particular curriculum to work. Again, pick and choose what works for you and donít forget about many online homeschooling materials available to you.
