I homeschooled my girls for a while. The younger one was in 3rd grade and my older one took 10th and 11th grade in one year. Check out these sites: www.alibris.com or www.bn.com .. they are both great sites. Barnes and Noble almost always has used books that you can get for a fraction of the cost. Alibris has many different texts and out of print books that you can get very inexpensively. I hope this helps. Good luck and enjoy.

Stephanie I am not sure where you are located, (which state) I currently live in PA. We have numerous homeschool resource center in our area. I also belong to a homeschool organization and at the end of the year the mother post used material so they can get rid of it. CBD is good as well as Amazon, Ebay or Alibris books will be able to provide material both new and used. I am not sure if you have chosen traditional homeschool or cyber. It does make quite a difference. I know we have 2 conventions also that provide materials in this area, one is in May and one coming up on August 8. I do have a phone number and info for the local used homeschool store I currently shop at. If you are interested i would be happy to pass it along. Just let me know.



Hope this is helpful and I am not to late to your post.

I found www.half.com to be really cheap. One book I needed for a college class I found on half.com at over 40.00 less. Good luck.

Most schools will assist parents that are homeschooling. I work in a Jr. High library and we sign books out to students that use our school to home school with. Check with the principal of your local Jr. High school.
