Homeschool Curriculum Shopping!

This morning we hit up our second homeschool curriculum sale.  We went to this same one last year at Clearview Baptist Church in Franklin and were able to find most of our resources we needed for kindergarten.  This year we have a larger book list and I am hoping that if we get there early enough we will be able to find most of our curriculum. We have not settled in on a literature guide yet so I’m hoping I may find one at the sale I like. The list of supplements we have are books that are recommended for further reading that we can live without. If I find them on a good deal, I will snatch them up!

I created several wish lists on Amazon to help organize what I am looking for. I have printed these off and am bringing them to the sale as my shopping list.  This will not only help me to refrain from buying things I do not need but each list also contains Amazon’s price so I can compare!

I thought I would post links to the lists here.  I know homeschool families are always interested in what others are using.  I basically created the lists from the suggestions of two books that are forming the curriculum strategy of our homeschool. The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise-Bauer and The Core by Leigh Bortins. We are using a classical education model and the resources chosen for next year tie in with the content we will be learning with our Classical Conversations co-op.

So here are the lists! Wish us luck!

  1. Hi. Do you happen to have the dates for this year’s book sale at Clearview Baptist??

  2. Good luck with the homeschooling. If you expect the first year to be a killer, then maybe it won’t seem stressful. 🙂
