You might also consider KONOS - I would say Volume 1 based on the ages of your girls. The web site is . Don't be overwhelmed by it - you can just ignore the lesson plans and just select the activities you want/can do and go with it. I think there may even be a konos email list you can sign up for, and you can sign up for the KONOS newsletter which might be helpful. Each KONOS volume is meant to be used over two to 2-1/2 years, and you can just use books from the library (you don't *have* to use their recommended list of books), so one volume could last you quite a while. KONOS covers all subjects except math, phonics/reading/grammar, and writing instruction. It's quite cost effective, since you can use it for all of your girls at once.

Another option would be the Prairie Primer. It's a one year unit study based on the Little House on the Prairie series. You would need to purchase the Little House books (or get them from the library) and use books from the library. As I recall, you would also need to supplement with math, phonics/reading/grammar, and writing instruction. You could also use this with all of your kids, just adjust to each girl's level. I'll link their web site below.

Once your oldest reaches 4-5th grade, then you could start her on Learning Adventures, and let the other ones tag along at their pace. Learning Adventures also has an email list you can sign up for and find out how to adjust things for the younger kids - lots of people do it.

I hope that helps
