We’ve just updated the Botany Curriculum Schedule.
Homeschooling mom L.S. shared this recently about her kids’ experience with our Chemistry in the Kitchen curriculum (shared with permission):
“I went to public high school and took Chemistry 1 & 2, but nothing in those classes would have actually helped me to pursue a science related career. My kids are learning so much more than I ever did in those classes and have retained it all! I memorized formulas, vocabulary words, methods, and all the other traditional chemistry concepts, but it meant nothing because it was all for a test and a grade. The things my kids are learning with this program are being learned organically and the concepts are coming up in everyday situations. They know their stuff!!!
Both my kids have issues, my son has mild cognitive issues (epilepsy) and my daughter deals with ADHD although she is ahead cognitively. For BOTH of them to grasp the same material and for it all to make sense is HUGE!!! ”
Her comment is exactly what I hoped for when I created this curriculum (and the other Guest Hollow programs as well)! I get so many comments about kids who are learning, retaining, and enjoying the material in our curricula – whether it’s chemistry or grammar or one of our other programs!!
Please share with others about your experience(s) with Guest Hollow and consider leaving a comment below and/or a review in our store (http://guesthollow.com/store/). We need everyone to spread the word so that other students can benefit from the Guest Hollow style of learning! Share the love for GH!
Jr. Anatomy is now updated! We’ve fixed any broken links and also removed a book from the resources that is no longer available new (The Truth about Poop and Pee). It’s been replaced with the book: Poop Happens. We’ve also added a printable book and materials list to help you with your planning and shopping.
If you purchased this program within the last year, you can access the new schedule via your downloads by logging into your store account. See this page for help:
We’ll be uploading new schedules for the other curriculum programs soon!

I’m trying to figure out my work “queue” based on what YOU would like (or need). Right now I’m working on a high school American history Year one. Year one will cover early American history up to about 1900. Sometime after that I will be making a year two that will cover 1900-modern times. Year two will be completed in time for users of year one to jump right in when they finish year one. I do have enough time to slip something in between year one and year two work-wise. Anyway, please vote in the comments which curriculum YOU want. If you’d like more than one thing, please list them in the order you’d like to see them.
Here are the options:
American history for elementary grades (that tracks with the high school level)
American history for middle school (that tracks with the high school level)
High school geography
Earth / physical science (please specify if you’d like it for high school or a lower grade)
High school elective: psychology
High school world history
High school language arts
Phonics program with cute readers
Math packets (comics and such to teach elementary grade math concepts)
Other: Please share any other things you would like or need in the future.
Thank you for participating!! Your comments will help shape my future projects!
Do you know which states were aligned with the Confederates, which were aligned with the Union, and which were considered border states during the Civil War? Your students will after using Guest Hollow’s up-and-coming high school American history curriculum! 😉 I’m hand drawing maps for the workbook / study guide!
I’ve always been a big believer in using maps while studying history. 🙂
This is what it looks like as I’m working on a curriculum! The people at the library know me by name, lol….This pile doesn’t even show the books I’ve already returned or the books I’ve managed to get on my Kindle (my reading preference).
I’m reading through TONS of books for the future high school American history curriculum to decide what I want to use and what I don’t! I’ve already culled quite a few and have added others to the YES list.
I’m glad I’m a fast reader. Usually I can read an average of 400-500 pages a day (give or take). I’m making sure every book choice meets my standards and has that “interest” factor. My husband and I will also be watching quite a few movies in the weeks to come. Let me know in the comments if you have any early American history favorites!
I’ve also started working on the study guide! YES, there will be a study guide with this program as there is with chemistry and physics. I plan on putting some comics in this one to add a little humor and to help students remember concepts. I can’t wait to share more!!
Our new language arts program is ready for purchase!
Our language arts program is unlike any other language arts program I’ve seen! Be one of the first to check it out and get your kids to love language arts!
Guest Hollow Language Arts is engaging, contains customizable elements to make a great fit for all types of learners, and approaches language arts subjects through diverse and colorful resources instead of a pile of boring workbooks.
Our language arts schedule is a little different than most homeschool language arts curricula in a variety of ways. Some of the key differences:
❤ It can be used for a variety of ages and grades, from grade 2 through grade 6. This means you can teach multiple students at once without having to use (or pay for) multiple language arts programs!
❤ It uses literature and a variety of books to teach concepts rather than tons of boring workbooks.
❤ It provides (optional) teacher education with parent/teacher reading assignments and articles to help YOU become a more informed homeschool teacher.
❤ It gently guides you into making your own curriculum-related decisions, so you can feel more confident doing things “your” way in future years.
❤ It’s flexible, so you aren’t locked into a set of books that doesn’t work for your student.
❤ Tried-and-true traditional methods are incorporated in the program mixed with fresh and fun new ways of learning things to reach a variety of learners – from the gifted to the reluctant!
