It seems to depend on the subject matter as to how much of a lesson plan comes with it. When all is said and done, I don't think we'll be using them but I thought maybe that info would help someone else who is curious about it.
We've pretty much decided that we will probably go with Oak Meadow with a substitution (or an addition) of Singapore Math. DS has officially decided he wants to homsechool but he thinks he wants to finish out this school year. He is ready to sit down with his father (my ex-husband) and I to talk it all out. Here's hoping it goes well! And DS checked out all of the various curricula I had found and was totally enamored with OM's fifth grade curriculum (with the exception of the math). So, if this all works out, I will be using OM for DS and DD (fifth grade and kindergarten). Wish me luck!
That's awesome! Do you know if they include lesson plans, or is it just textbooks?
After the comment here about Evolution (and a few I have found elsewhere) speculating that their materials are in some way pirated or just a conglomeration of other curricula that could be bought cheaper elsewhere, I decided to contact them directly. Here is the email I received in response:
