It is almost time to get back to school and that means planning and ordering your curriculum. Wading through all the choices can be a bit daunting (to put it lightly). Our friends at Homeschool Buyers Co-op have put together some helpful tips for choosing curriculum for your new school year.

Get Organized

Make sure you have lesson plans, assignments and a grading plan in place for the new year. A homeschool planner can help you to start your year organized and keep your homeschool on track. 

Learning Dispositions

Teaching to a child’s learning disposition can help improve their (and your) homeschool experience. If you are not sure what style of learning best suits your child, take a learning style assessment to make informed choices for your curriculum needs

Core Curriculum

Selecting your core curriculum can always be challenging. There are so many options out there. Selecting an all-in-one curriculum can help to ensure your essentials are covered


What do your kids love to do? Electives can be a fantastic way to foster their natural talents while they explore something they love. Check out art and music electives for your creative kids, explore a foreign language with your future world-traveler or help your soon-to-be new driver learn the rules of the road. Electives are the perfect educational way to support your child’s favorite activities and hobbies. 


The perfect homeschool curriculum doesn’t have to be expensive! The Co-op has the best prices on all the curriculum you need for your school year. Best of all, everything has been thoroughly reviewed and vetted by veteran homeschool parents so you know you are getting the best deals on the best curriculum.
