Homeschool curriculum choices and purchasing sources

Homeschool curriculum catalogues can swallow you if you are not sure for what gem you are looking. Winter is the time of year to start flipping through those pages and marking with sticky notes or highlighters those items you think might further your educational journey with your children.

Some of the best I have seen come from Christianbook.com and Rainbowresource.com. These have great descriptions of everything from Saxon Math, to Apologia, to unit studies and biographies. Some of the best features are the personal reviews of the products. The Rainbow Resource catalogue is larger than a phone book, and has some of the most extensive reviews and descriptions that can be found for homeschool curriculum. Both catalogues can be sent to you free of charge by requesting them at the websites.

It is important to start searching for your next homeschool curriculum help and resource now because spring can be the best time to buy these items. The prices are historically lower at homeschool book retail locations and families are doing their spring cleaning. Many families are finding that there are several wonderful sites to buy and sell those used (or sometimes just new and dusty) books.
Some of these sites are: 1) Vegsource  2) Homeschool Classifieds http://www.hand 3) Second Harvest Curriculum.

Also check out your local homeschool support group. Many have online groups or web sites with options for listing items for sale, and this would save on the shipping. As with any purchase online, ask questions, request photos, and clarify shipping schedules and costs. Starting now gives you something to do on these cold winter days and gives you the time to find the curriculum you need at the best prices.
