Be sure to review the homeschool laws for your state. Some states have requirements covering the subjects and number of hours you must teach each year.
Developmentally appropriate materials are a critical aspect of the successful curriculum. Most children have some variation and may not be at the same age/grade level in all skills.
Your child's learning style (visual, auditory, tactual, kinesthetic) may not have much impact on the choice of subject material to cover, but it should be carefully considered when using materials and supplies for presenting that material.
Benchmarks and typical courses of study can provide a useful framework for your curriculum.
The cost of materials is another area which will have little impact on the content of the curriculum, but it will certainly influence your choice of materials and resources.
Any developmental delays, disablities, or severe knowledge deficits should be taken into account when planning your curriculum.
Review and research benchmarks, standards and typical courses of study.
Develop a comprehensive list of goals for the year (at a minimum), detailing the subjects you wish to cover.
Explore homeschool resources, materials and advice.
Select the materials and resource you will use to meet the goals you established in Step 2.
Evaluate your budget and purchase materials.
