Curriculum and Checklists
The TFs at Sage Oak are here to help you choose curriculum and resources to make your educational journey a success. To help you get started, you can review the checklists and recommended curriculum below.
Curriculum Comparison Charts by Subject
Please note that the vendor who created these charts (Rainbow Resource) sells religious curriculum, which Sage Oak cannot purchase. The charts clearly note what is religious and what is not.
Home Educating Environment
Setting up a home-educating environment in your home that works for you and your child(ren) is an important best practice for home-educating. Take a look at some actual home-educating environments from our own TFs that home-educate their child(ren).
If you would like to film your home-educating environment for us to share here, please follow these guidelines:
- Must be 5 minutes or less in length
- Must submit a Photographic and/or Video Release Form along with the video
- The video may not have any people or children in it. You can talk through the video and point out the various components, but no individuals in front of the camera.
- This is a home-educating environment and organization video, please no discussion regarding curriculum.
*Email the completed video and release form to Jamee Block, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that due to storage size, we may not be able to post all videos submitted.
Home Educating Best Practices
