    So, you are a few weeks or even a few months into your school year and realize that you HATE (yes, that is a strong word but when it applies, it applies) some or all of the curriculum choices you made. You are not alone. We have all been there at one point or another. It is a part of homeschooling. ...

    Collect the Seeds

    The first step in making a seed board is to collect the seeds.

    • Buy at the store — You can purchase packets of a variety of seeds;
    • Raid the kitchen — Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat have seeds you can collect;

    A lot of people like RSO. It's a good option. TOPS is a decent one for experiments. Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding is good if you're willing to put up with the hard to use format.

    Front Row Education is somewhat similar to Moby Max. But it doesn't place you in any specific grade. Lessons are assigned based on placement test results.
