We don’t follow a boxed curriculum, and don’t recommend them. The majority of homeschoolers have found that from one subject to the next their children will be on various grade levels. We tend to do a lot of lessons online, or reading. We have workbooks but they’re usually just filler work, when one finishes early or we’re waiting somewhere, etc.
