An Old Fashioned Education

Post by Sonshine on Fri May 08, 2009 11:16 pm

http://oldfashionededucation.com/

Homeschooling can cost a fortune if we're not careful. A textbook plus the answer manual, teacher's manual and test booklet can easily run over $200! And that's just for one grade level and one subject. Good grief! Do they think we're all growing money-trees in the back yard? I live in a single income household and there is no way on God's Green Earth that I can afford to spend as much on homeschool supplies as I'd like to. Since buying whatever strikes my fancy is not an option I have decided to seek out as many free on-line resources as I can find. There are literally thousands from which to choose. Since there's no way I can use everything available I have chosen to focus mainly on texts in the public domain with minor reference to a few other significantly useful sites.

I have lucked out in my homeschooling books. We have a large homeschooling family and my children are the last to go thru. I have gotten all the books from them. I also found some on an online classified for really cheap. Then there is a local church that has a sale day for all of us and alot of us swap for what we need. We are starting our last one this next year in kindergarden. I also use crayola for art alot. They have a very good web site for stuff like that.

There are also the Book Samaritans for any who REALLY have a financial hardship in getting homeschool books. Not sure of their website, but they are there to try and help at no cost to those who need it if at all possible.
You have to send them a letter stating why you are needing help getting books and the ages/grades of your kids. You can be as precise as you have to be, or as vague as you can possibly be (as in you can state you need such and such a book and hopefully they have it, or you can just say I have this kid in this grade level and they need English, Hist, etc. and take whatever comes.
They ask that whatever you do receive from them that you never, ever sell but regive and they accept donations of books and things as well.

The address for Book Samaritan is:
1715 Grandview Pawhuska, OK 74056

From what I have found it is still there, but there is something wrong with their webpage it seems.
Sorry it's taken me a bit to reply. I have been under the weather with allergies and am just miserable! Hardly anything but the basics are getting done here and it's starting to show! Sad
I bought some generic zyrtec and some severe head congestion stuff, and hoping that it works SOON. All the kids are kinda down too. No energy, stuffy, and just miserable....

I'm sorry you're having such problems with allergies. They really hit me hard this year too, but fortunately mine is starting to settle down now. Good thing too, the garden was getting out of control with weeds. Hope they zyrtec helps. I haven't been able to find anything that helps mine.
