The York Home School Association is getting ready for its annual Curriculum Fair. Homeschoolers can expect to find new and used books for sale, workshops and curriculum 'show and tell' explained by the families using it.
Workshop speakers include Mike Snavely from Mission Imperative! speaking on creation topics, Susan Kallstrom giving an overview of the PA Homeschooling law and Donna Botterbusch speaking on the ins and outs of homeschooling the high school years.
This book fair originally began due to the "interest and increasing demand of local homeschooling families wishing for a local and a low costing curriculum fair," according to YHSA Fair Coordinator Julie Tate. "With the help of many YHSA volunteers, the YHSA Boy Scouts, 4-H club and others we have been able to set up a local homeschooling fair showing examples of different homeschooling styles, a variety of vendors selling new curriculum and books or services and showcase other opportunities that non-members or current members may not yet be aware of that YHSA has to offer."
There will be over 80 used curriculum and book sales tables. More vendors are welcome to apply until the deadline on Friday, March 26. "YHSA would love to promote our local economy. We would love to see a general science supplier, a music shop and any vendor willing to set up with cash and carry items," says Mrs. Tate.
