Florida law does NOT require any particular curriculum. Homeschool parents do not have to use public school materials. Parents may use any materials at any levels that work for their children. Materials do not even have to be textbooks or workbooks but can be websites, apps, ordinary books (sometimes called living books), magazines, graphic novels, or whatever works to help your children learn. Note that there’s no such thing as accredited curriculum; there are accredited programs that offer curriculum, but there’s no need to use them. Even in high school, feel free to use any materials that work for your children. You can adjust levels without permission from anyone or change materials if one isn’t the fit you thought it would be.
Where do you find curriculum? There are many available sources these days. Many buy from online sites--whether directly from publishers, or general book sales sites, or sites specifically geared to homeschool materials. There are Facebook groups specifically for selling homeschool curriculum, eBay.com, Amazon.com, and more. Some homeschool groups and homeschool conventions often sell curriculum. Used curriculum can save your budget. There are free materials available online or through a local public library and some schools or school districts offer free materials if you use the magic words "off-adoption materials" when asking.
How to choose? My suggestion is to proceed slowly and carefully
