2011 Curriculum Fair on Simple Homeschool

Written by Jamie Martin, editor of Simple Homeschool and founder of Steady Mom

I vividly remember the moment I walked into my first curriculum fair at a homeschooling conference. 250 exhibitors had tables lined up side by side, there to show off their stuff (and convince me to buy it.)

In a word, it was overwhelming.

What I really wanted, what I really needed, were experienced friends who could let me in on what they’ve already learned about the curriculum-buying process. What worked for them, what didn’t? What resource was worth investing in–and what wasn’t?

Starting today on Simple Homeschool we’re doing just that–kicking off our own curriculum fair, simple style.

Over this month each of our contributors will write about the resources that have worked for them. From preschoolers to high schoolers and all ages in between, stay tuned to discover unbiased opinions from moms in the trenches just like you. Moms working with real budgets, real successes, and real challenges.

Get ready to find the inspiration you need to tackle planning for the upcoming year with confidence.

Welcome to the fair–grab your coffee and browse at your own pace. See you back here on Wednesday to get started!

If you could ask any question relating to curriculum or homeschooling resources, what would it be? We may be able to work some of the answers into our posts over the month.
