Today I am going to reveal our 7th grade homeschool curriculum choices.
I have one child going into 7th grade, and one that’s at a 6th/7th grade level. Her curriculum choices will be listed, too.

Our 7th Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices (2020-2021)
Jacob’s Elementary Algebra
Last year we did Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra. This year we both decided offline would be better for us right now, so we ordered from Masterbooks.
We have searched high and low for a curriculum that fits my daughter. So far, no luck! I wanted to try out Principles of Mathematics this year, but it was not what we’d hoped it would be.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about CTC math from friends. So, I decided to give it a try this year.
We’ve also moved my 4th grader into CTC math as well.
You can get CTC math for 1/2 price if you’re a homeschooler! It’s super affordable for the whole family.
Language Arts/ Reading/ Spelling
This year we really needed to focus on writing skills & reinforce their grammar skills. So, we chose Writing Stands Beginner 1.
We are reading through all the books we haven’t read yet on Ambleside Online’s Pre-7 booklist.
There are some really great classic books on this list! Right now we are listening on Audible to Anne of Green Gables.
I found Daily Grammar while searching for free homeschool resources. It has 440 short daily lessons. We are going to start with the section we need to work on most.
Each day I record what words were misspelled in their assignments, and they copy them down in a notebook for practice.
Art/ Artist Study/ Music Study
Ambleside’s Rotation for Art Study and Music.
American/ World History
- George Washington Carver: From Slave to Scientist, Janet & Geoff Benge (Biography)

We are continuing with some of the same resources we used last year. We are doing more The Good & The Beautiful Science units, and Easy Peasy for PE.
Here’s the line up for PE, Health, & Science this year:
- Mystery of the Periodic Table Benjamin Wiker
- The Wonder Book of Chemistry (1922) or The Story-book of Science (Illustrated)
- Science Experiments via Pinterest
- Ordinary Genius: The Story of Albert Einstein (Trailblazer Biographies)
If we need more science units before the school year is up, I’ve been eyeing the Mammals & Botany units as well.
Tales From Shakespeare
Julius Caesar (if we get there)

Scheduling Your Year
If you need help scheduling your year, I highly suggest ADE’s scheduling cards. They are a lifesaver for anyone who is a Charlotte Mason homeschooler.
What about you?
I’d love to hear what your 7th grade homeschool curriculum choices are. Leave it in the comments.
