It’s not too late (plus 11 of my favorites from Build Your Bundle)

Doubtless you’ve heard of the Build Your Bundle Homeschool sale. It’s definitely been the talk of homeschool circles online. I admit that sometimes I don’t pay attention to these things just because I think I don’t have time to study the choices and I really don’t need any more digital curriculum that I might never get around to using. I can honestly say that’s not the case with the Build Your Bundle sale. It was supposed to end yesterday, but they’ve extended the sale until midnight tonight for anyone who wants to make a last-minute purchase (which is what I always end up doing).

To simplify your choices a little and answer any questions about the usefulness of the resources included, I’ve made a list of my favorites from the sale that I’ve actually used, reviewed, and can recommend. I’m not a high-pressure kind of salesperson and I won’t recommend anything I wouldn’t actually use myself. I really hope this helps as you’re planning for next year’s curriculum!

Top 11 Favorites from the Build Your Bundle Homeschool Curriculum Sale. Ends 6-2-15 at midnight!

Homeschool Curriculum in the Digital Age

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for ways to save in our homeschool budget.  I try to use whatever thrifty resources I can, which often includes digital products. I was an old school holdout for years before I came to accept digital homeschool curriculum and books, but the practical side of me (read: frugal) won out.

Homeschool Curriculum in the Digital Age ~ 6 Advantages of Using Digital Homeschool Curriculum

 

Advantages of Digital Homeschool Curriculum

There are some advantages to digital homeschool curriculum that I’ve come to appreciate in the past few years:

  • it’s available instantly when you need it
  • it doesn’t take up room on your bookshelf
  • it’s easily portable (we like to read on our Kindle)
  • you can print what you choose when you choose
  • it can be used for more than one student and printed multiple times (depending on the particular copyright permissions of the material)
  • it is generally less expensive than print materials

One of the great resources I discovered last year is the Build Your Bundle -Homeschool Edition. Not only does it offer great prices on digital curriculum, it’s very customizable to suit your individual needs! I love that! There are bundles for Charlotte Mason, copywork, math, science, history, language arts, middle school, high school, preK and elementary, just for boys, and just for girls. If none of those meet your needs, you can build your own bundle with selections of your choice. Does it get any better than that?

Yes, it does. Why? Because not only does it offer pre-assembled bundles, but you can actually build your own bundle of resources! Perfectly customized and individualized, just like homeschooling!
