Can you believe the summer is almost over?
I walked into the grocery store the other day and there was an entire aisle telling me it is time to get school supplies. My kids actually love school supplies. Pencils, notebooks, staplers, etc.
For those of us who homeschool we also are looking for the best places to buy curriculum at the best prices. When you are teaching a learning challenged child you have to be very intentional. Everything has to help my child continue to move forward while covering as many subjects as possible.
I am always looking for decodeable reading material that covers science and history so I can kill the proverbial two birds with one stone. In this case reading and one of the other subjects.
Are you on the hunt for this school years’ curriculum like I have been? Here are a few resources that may help (This is only a drop in the bucket of possibilities, but it is a start).
In this post I will be sharing some of my favorite websites for your consideration. Every one of these sites has products that can help you teach children with learning disorders. Not all of these sites are affiliates but they are all worth taking a look at. In future articles, I will write some posts that will break down resources by subject.
Let’s get started.
1. Amazon –
Okay, you probably already buy from Amazon regularly. They have one of the most extensive collections of homeschool products out there. And one of the great things is you often can save even more by finding something in used condition. I love their selection of educational, games, toys, readers, manipulatives, and yes, curriculum.
2. Educents –
This site sells some of the more popular homeschool curriculum. But I like them for the products that have been created by other teachers and home educators. My son, Zane is working through the Zoo Animals Nonfiction Unit this summer to keep his mental juices flowing. Whenever I find supplements with photographs instead of childlike drawings I get excited and this one had that. He loves animals so this was a great choice for him. Perhaps you can find some things that are a great fit for one of your children.
3. All About Learning –
This is the home of the excellent reading and spelling curriculum by Marie Ripple, All About Reading and All About Spelling. She has created a parent friendly multisensory resource that takes the guess work away for parents who are feeling intimidated by teaching their dyslexic student. But don’t assume her stuff is only for struggling students. Her products are effective for any child learning to read and spell. Not only that, her site is loaded with FREE printables, excellent blog articles and so much more. Right now they are offering a summer reading program for kids. I’m not sure how she finds the time to offer all that she does. Check it out.
I have used this company’s books for 20 years. I am a firm believer that critical thinking skills are crucial. They have books that focus on figurative and require less reading and writing. This past year I used several of their resources especially for my teenagers. They have products that cover just about every subject and age level.
5. EPS –
This site has been providing teachers with resources geared to special needs for over 60 years. Loaded with Orton-Gillingham based literacy programs, math resources, and much more. Keep in mind that these products are geared to parochial school teachers. But they do sell to individuals and their products are tested for results.
I have been buying curriculum from this site for decades. They have one of the largest selections of homeschool materials around and like Amazon you can often look inside of the curriculum to get an idea of what the product is like. Some of these larger sites can be overwhelming because they carry so many choices.
I realize this is just the tip of the iceberg where homeschool sites are concerned. But if you are just beginning on the journey of homeschooling your children, this will give you a strong start.
