Amazon Prime Day is happening now! And some of our family-favorite board games, educational games, and other homeschool essentials are on sale! Even if you don’t catch this post while the prices are low, this is a great list of resources to put in your cart or price-watching app and grab for gifts, holidays, or just when you need to keep things fresh!
Homeschooling with stuff
Let me start by saying it does NOT take a lot of stuff to homeschool. You can do it, and do it effectively, with little more than a library card and some notebooks. When you are able to make an investment in curriculum, books, resources, and tools, you want to do so wisely. One of the ways I’ve made sure I’m putting our family’s funds into is to seek out recommendations from homeschoolers with experience. In that spirit, here are some of my top recommendations available on Amazon.com!
The idea of using board games for learning is really taking off in the homeschool world! Playing games as a family has so many benefits including multi-age learning, critical thinking, good sportsmanship, and sometimes even a fun way to approach fact memorization!
Our family loves trivia games, but some of the newer and creative strategy games are really popular with my teens. We can also all take turns entertaining the toddler with his favorite cooperative games.
Home and office
This list has some of the home and office tools that are most definitely “extras.” I’ve found them incredibly helpful in our homeschool, yet they are by no means necessary. But if you’re looking for a deal on something that’s going to make your life a little easier, check these out.
So there’s a start and some recommendations from this veteran homeschool mom!
I’ll be updating this post as deals pop up, so be sure to check back.
In the meantime, sign up for free trial of Amazon prime so you can grab some great savings!
