Every man, woman, and child in your home owns a computer. You built them yourselves. You like them. You can’t help it.
You really wish someone would put everything your children need for their entire school career on a few disks, to save you some time. After all, when you prefer life in front of your computer, you hardly feel like shopping at curriculum shows in some out of the way huge city.
Funds are tight for you, too, and you’d be willing to do more than your share to save some money. You could use a true, budget-saving curriculum that has no frills but doesn’t charge for them, either.
And you’ve noticed lately that the house seems to be shrinking and home school materials haven’t helped that problem much—you never guessed it all would take up so much space! Isn’t there some tinier, tidier version that you could stuff in a bag or something, and not have to build shelves or buy a storage hut for?
Is this the 21st century or did I imagine it!
And whose bright idea was it to make the teacher book identical to the students’! Everything takes twice the space and funds, that way, and really, if you can’t score first grade math without an answer key, well, wow.
It just seems to you all the materials you need could be in one package and that could be the end of it.
Why prolong the agony?
Why keep going back and going back, just to get what you knew you would need, anyway?
Seems like if it were all pre-packaged, it could cost even less.
Is this you?
Do you need something that saves time, money, space, and doesn’t insult you?
Is it out there?
A great old-fashioned schoolbook type curriculum has been committed to CDs and includes everything you need from lined paper for penmanship practice, through all textbooks, all the way to every outside reading book you will ever need to educate a child, ALL ON CDs. True, you’d want to print off some of it, since it is not interactive, but it is all there, from that first kindergarten matching exercise, to the last calculus test, and all points between.
At the risk of seeming to bend the guidelines, which I am NOT, (this is only an informative blog, please!) let me suggest you scout out the Robinson Curriculum.
It may be the answer to all your needs.
