Free Celebration Education Curriculum!

Follow along with Celebration Education's fun exploration theme this year with our free at-home curriculum!

Since 2006, Celebration Education has held in-person classes for students that are homeschooled. This year, Celebration Education is providing free at-home theme-related curriculum outlines that anyone can use. They are meant to complement our classes but you don't have to take our classes to use the curriculum.


Each outline has enough easy-to-use content for one week of hands-on projects. Ideas for reading, writing, and math activities are included! If this style of learning suits you, you don't have to buy any curriculum!


Here's a sample one-week outline.


Just join our email list (at the bottom of this page) and you'll get the weekly outlines delivered to your inbox each week!



Here's how to use the curriculum.

You don't have to do it this way, but if you're a planner, these resources can help you get started.

The minutes listed are generalizations. Children may take less time or, if interested, may take much longer until they are satisfied with the activity or project. The schedule is just an example. Each family will implement the activities differently – do whatever works best for your family!


Mental math activities (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) and mental solving are learned through repetition in any form. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • watch and memorize math facts songs like those from Schoolhouse Rock

  • take timed tests

  • practice skip counting

  • do mental math exercises in textbooks such as Saxon Math

  • play online mental math games
