School House

What are some good home school curriculums for a sixth grade girl?

It is my first year to home school my daughter. She is very into art, music and role playing so I am looking for a curriculum that will inspire her to learn. I have heard Switched on School House is good but very expensive.
All wonderful helpful answers, thank you.

I homeschool our 6th grade daughter as well and we use a variety of different curriculums. I agree with the other poster about units- its alot more planning for you, but its well worth it when your kids get so excited about learning! If you could "map out" what you want to teach her this year, then you can go from there. For example, we are doing American History, so I got a great series called A History of US. We read a chapter each day( they are VERY short) and then I give her a 5 question quiz on the lesson. After that, we do a hands-on activity related to the chapter. We use Exploring Creation With.... series for science and this year we are using the Astronomy book and the Zoology 3 books. We've done all kinds of hands-on activities as well as several field trips. She loves doing projects, etc... If you have any teacher supply stores in your area, you can go there and find all kinds of thematic unit books. There are a ton of websites too where you can get free lesson plans, worksheets, etc... Some of our favorites are:
www.suelebeau.com
www.schoolexpress.com
www.teach-nology.com
www.discoveryschool.com
www.abcteach.com

We use Saxon Math as well, and Wordly Wise 3000 grade 6 for spelling/vocabulary. I also use a variety of different writing books ( you can find a ton on amazon.com or Christianbook.com) and I compiled a reading list over the summer for her of books to read this year. Many of them are historical fiction books, since that is her favorite topic.

I have heard about S.O.S. but have not used it. You can go to www.homeschoolreviews.com to get reviews from other parents on just about every homeschool curriculum out there. The best advice I have gotten though is from other parents I have met! See if you can find a local homeschool support group or co-op. We belong to 2 support groups and 1 co-op and they have lots of fun art classes available, academic courses, etc... Have a nice evening!
