Homeschool Teacher Loves Calvert Home School Curriculum

Convenience = Calvert in a Box!

Calvert home school curriculum allows easy homeschooling success for mom of two “special ed” kids.

I have used Calvert home school curriculum for a couple of years now and I like the program.

If you are unsure about how to proceed with homeschooling, there is a lesson by lesson plan book for each grade. Generally, we just do a lesson each day; all subjects are covered so the students get a full course thru the year, but it is easy to skip forward and cover what the student needs.

For the ones that are having trouble in math, there is quite a bit of repetition, but when they finally get the concept and you skip to the next chapter, everything flows along very nicely.

I have a 2nd, 4th and 7th grader right now. Two of my students are "special ed" kids, but they are moving along quite well with Calvert. I will be staying with the program in the upcoming years.

I believe that Calvert is reasonably priced, and it all comes in one box, without any scrambling around looking for extras to finish the lessons.

The reading program for the 7th grader included: AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, ANNE FRANK, ROLL OF THUNDER, and KIDNAPPED. The books came in the box and the lesson plan book has all the questions to ask for checking his understanding of the book. You will also find a section for vocabulary enrichment for each book.

I just wanted to know if you know of any resources to purchase a used Calvert 7th grade curriculum. Thank You!

Hi Michelle,
You may find Calvert used homeschool curriculum on Vegsource's Grade 7-12 used curriculum board. I just looked and noticed a seventh grade course was listed recently.

You can also list the resources you want to buy on the Vegsource WTB (Want to Buy) board. is another great website to find used Calvert curriculum; you will also find a WTB board where you can post the items you are looking for.

Another great place to find Used Calvert Homeschool Curriculum is on ebay.

I have used all three of these websites to buy used homeschool curriculum and materials for my family. Always be extra cautious when purchasing any used curriculum online; you don't want to waste your money. I've included some tips for you below.

Good Luck, Michelle!
Heather :)

Calvert Homeschool Academy Review: 1st Grade

by Hannah
(Paragould, Arkansas,USA)

Homeschooling mom shares some pros and cons of Calvert homeschool curriculum; read her review to find out what she liked and didn't like about this program...

The First Grade Calvert homeschool curriculum worked well for our family. The books were excellent! My son, Alex, loved the bright colored pictures and detailed assignments.

I would use Calvert again, if it were more affordable. Their prices, especially if you want the teachers resources, are extremely high. However, I can use the books that we used this past year for my younger daughter once she begins 1st grade as well!

Hannah, thanks for taking the time to share what you like and don't like about Calvert homeschool curriculum. Your thoughts are appreciated! Blessings, Heather :)

Calvert Homeschool Review

by Sandi Brubaker
(Lake Station, IN, USA)

Calvert Homeschool Success!

Calvert Homeschool Success!

First time homeschooling mom shares how Calvert homeschool curriculum eased her worries and gave her confidence...

I choose Calvert homeschool curriculum for my daughter for preschool. I was a first time homeschooling parent and I wanted a curriculum that was already made for me. I wanted it as easy as possible, providing me with everything I needed.

Once I received the packet of material, it had 160 days of lessons plans already for me, with everything my daughter needed to complete her lessons. Example: pencils, crayons, math blocks, coloring sheets, etc. I was excited!

We started in the fall, and found out very quickly that this program was "too easy" for my daughter. But, being the first time homeschooling parent I loved the confidence it gave me to do this. I followed Calvert's daily program, except I'd do 2-5 days together, because of where my daughter was already educationally.

I also learned that including my own material would not be overwhelming for her.

So, for confidence for me, this was a great program. For my daughter I thought it was too easy.

Would I recommend Calvert homeschool programs to others? Yes. Especially if they are looking for an "easy" way of homeschooling.

Thanks for the great review of Calvert homeschool curriculum, Sandi! I love the details you provided; I think other parents, especially first-time home educators will find your experience very helpful. Blessings, Heather :)
