  1. My daughter-in-law just decided to home school her oldest son, 9. I’ve just sent her the link to your site, and am proud beyond words of both her decision to do so, and of YOUR having created site like this.

    Asante

    Can you recommend any curriculums that you use or used as a homeschool parent. Thank you! Love this site!

    Asante

    1. Jalila,

      Thank you for visiting. I typically write my own curriculum, but a great curriculum that I recommend is the Kamali Academy African centered curriculum. You can preview and purchase it at kamaliacademy.com.

      Best,

      Nikala

      1. Nanette Williams

        Is the Kamali Academy African centered curriculum core curriculm centered? Is it secular? And can you explain how testing is done if you write your own curriculum. Thats what is throwing me off from catching the concepts of homeschooling. I know its what i need to do but i dont want to make a situation worst than it already is. The guilty parent lol. Thanks you advance. To narrow it down a bit if i want to teach Yoruba or kemetics how do i come up with the once a year testing that is required. Or is it required.

      2. Hi Nanette,

        Testing requirements vary by state. What state are you in? I can point you to the regulations for your state.

        In my state, Texas, standardized testing is NOT required. Kamali Academy curriculum is not core centered and is not religious.

        If you are a “guilty” parent, you can cover the “core” subjects first and then add the other courses that you want to add, such as Yoruba and Mdw Ntr to your curriculum. If you are completely overwhelmed, you can use an online system like Time4Learning for the core subjects, and then go from there. Time4Learning also tracks grades and attendance. Please let me know if this helps.

        Thank you for your question!

        Please email me through the contact page with your choice of the 3 e-books (see most recent post about contest) so that I can email it to you.

        Love and Light,

        Nikala Asante
