As gifted/2e homeschoolers, we know that every child is different and requires a different approach to learning. As consumers, we know that capitalism assures a certain level of diversity as well. (How else can we explain the vast wall of breakfast cereals that torture our decision-challenged kiddos?)
Another thing we know as gifted/2e homeschoolers is that one could go bankrupt amassing all the materials we’d like to offer our amazing students. Microscopes, math manipulatives, libraries, and so much more for little minds that go lightening fast.
Consider, then, the challenge of finding all those curricular options, putting them in one place, and making them affordable. As it happens, there is a resource out there that does that well. Homeschool Buyers Co-op researches homeschooling curriculum options and chooses a handful of the best. Then they negotiate deep discounts on those chosen few to offer their members.
Beyond that, they maintain a database of free homeschool resources, a summer reading program, and a list of field trip destinations throughout the US and Canada. They even have a frequent buyer point program.
