I've written a post and recorded a video at my website about choosing homeschool curriculum and books. It's easy to think that we need a certain book or package but are we really asking the right questions before making the purchase? Once a parent asks themselves the questions listed in my post, they should have a pretty good idea of whether or not they should purchase what they think they really need to have.
I also address what to do during those times when we purchase homeschool books or curriculum and find that it was not a wise decision for our families. This happens to every homeschooler at some time and we need to go easy on ourselves when that happens.
Hopefully these 10 questions will help many homeschoolers purchase just what they need this year for their children. It's easy to buy a packaged curriculum and think that it will solve all our problems, but we need to remember that we really need to keep our children's best interests at heart when choosing what they will use for the year.
Check out my 10 questions and let me know if you have any comments.
