I attended out annual used curriculum sale today. I found a few prizes!

First was a pack of Learning Wrap-Ups. The set I bought contained addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions. I plan to get them out a few times a week through the summer and require 30 minutes of playing with them. Perhaps they will keep the Lambies skills up during our weeks off.

I also found Senior High: A Home-Designed Form-U-La by Barbara Edtl Shelton. I have heard good things about it, and had it in my Amazon cart. The mom who sold it to me also threw in Cathy Duffy's manual. I have some light reading to do this summer.

Another get-to-take-it-out-of-the-Amazon-cart find was "Do Hard Things" by Brett and Alex Harris. Well worth the $3 I spent.
I found a copy of Harvey's Elementary Grammar and Composition. I may or may not end up using it, but it complements my Mott Media McGuffey's series nicely.

Rounding out my purchases was Answers in Genesis's God's Design for Chemistry: Properties of Matter and Properties of Atoms and Molecules. These are another "I might use it, I might not" purchase, but at $5, you have to get it, right?

I really enjoy our annual sale. What's your best find so far this spring?

  1. We did Properties of Atoms and Molecules this semester, and my kids "cried" when we finished the last experiment and put the book away. :( It was that good!


I love comments! Please feel free to leave kind words, new ideas, requests for recipes, even gentle criticism if needed in the spirit of Proverbs 16:24.
