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)
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.
So, this year I decided to go back to what we know works. That’s Easy Peasy Math. We’ve used years 1-6 of their math program so far. It’s a very solid program.
My oldest son used Easy Peasy Step 1 & part of Step 2. He was able to skip ahead 2 levels when we switched curriculum.
Another great bonus with Easy Peasy is that it’s completely free when you use the online version. The offline version is very affordable as well. I’m talking $20-$30 for a complete year of math.
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
EP Modern Art & Music to go along with Modern History.
EP Modern History along with some living books we have for that era. Geography is built into the course.
We don’t follow EP History exactly how it’s written. There are a few things we will be skipping and adding in to make it as CM friendly as possible.
This year I let them choose what language they wanted to learn. My daughter wanted to continue with Spanish, and my son chose Chinese.

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:
- Arthropods by TGTB
- Space Science by TGTB
- Maturation by TGTB
- EP PE & Health by TGTB
- Nature Notebook by TGTB
If we need more science units before the school year is up, I’ve been eyeing the Mammals & Botany units as well.
What about you?
I’d love to hear what your 7th grade homeschool curriculum choices are. Leave it in the comments.
