I have never in my life been to a curriculum sale. I knew I would need some materials for all the kids this year. But I really went in thinking I would be in and out within 20 minutes. I really had no idea what to expect. Didn't take cash, just the checkbook. I really didn't spend much at all. Stayed in lower two digits too! But I walked out with 3 boxes and 1 big tote full of books! This was in combination with two separate trips that I made this morning to the sale. When I shop I will get a few things but really I am taking inventory of everything that is there. I leave for awhile and think about it. Then will go back if there is something that is heavy on my mind.
I ended up with a lot of A Beka books. A curriculum I hadn't really thought much about really. But I was able to find full sets on the cheap! I now have Emily's year filled, Elizabeth's year still needs a math curriculum, Jesse's year is complete and Jacob still needs some things. I am thinking of going with Alpha Omega lifepac's for Algebra I for Jacob. Wanting to stay with A Beka for Elizabeth's math.
In thinking of what individual things we are going to do. I know that I want to do Unit Studies with Elizabeth Anne this year. I found a Butterfly Unit Study on CurrClick...downloaded it free to the computer. When we are ready to start, just print and go! Tonight on a fellow homeschooling blog,
Teachable Scotts Tots Homeschool , I saw her talking about the Butterfly Habitat Garden. I think this would be perfect to enhance our Butterfly study!! I love it when things come together so nicely!!
