Used Homeschool Curriculum Sale

{UPDATED WITH TONS OF NEW ITEMS!) Having homeschooled for over 11 years now, and having done numerous curriculum reviews, I have accumulated an abundance of curriculum that I no longer need. I have one that has graduated, none of elementary age any more and two very different children from the first that are still homeschooling. What does this all mean? It means I am having a used homeschool curriculum sale!

Welcome to my Used (Like New) Homeschool Curriculum Sale. After 11 years it is time to clear out some of our curriculum. Many of these are like new, never written in. The sale will be going on all summer (or until everything is sold)! Be sure to check back in as I will be adding more as I unearth more from the many bins I have been saving!

I have curriculum in every subject, spanning different ages, and various learning styles. While the title says “used curriculum sale”, many of the items have never been written in and are “like new”. I will do my best to describe any writing or flaws if an item has them. Each item is sold “as is” and cannot be returned for any reason.

SHIPPING COSTS (to US only): $6 for first item (lot), $3 for each additional item (lot). Individual Books (like a single Teacher’s Manual $5). I am not looking to make money on shipping so if you have questions or want to try and combine things just e-mail me. heidi @ startsateight .com and I will weigh your items to get the most accurate shipping price I can.

Payments will be accepted via Paypal. As people are free to buy and pay at various times, I will be shipping in batches – once a week. Upon payment confirmation I will get your box ready to ship. When I have shipped I will send you an e-mail with the tracking number so you know when to expect your package.

E-mail heidi @ startsateight .com with the items you would like. I will get back to you to let you know if they are yours or already spoken for! As soon as I receive payment for an item I will mark it as sold!

Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra 2.0 – $25

This is only the Pre-Algebra 2.0 Text and Pre-Algebra 2.0 Answer Key/Test Bank.

We have been using Teaching Textbooks in our homeschool for many years. My oldest daughter, who used it for all of her high school math from Pre-Algebra through Geometry, scored very well on her math entrance exams for college. While I know many who like to use just the text, or use the text along with the cds, we have always just used the cds. This was the first Teaching Textbooks we purchased and thus did not know what our preference would be.

Here are a couple of articles I have written about our experiences with Teaching Textbooks:
