Upcoming 2013 Georgia Homeschooling Conferences
Conferences are a great place to meet other homeschooling families and to get some new ideas on curricula, activities, and general management of the children’s education.
Many of these are open for registration now, and some of the larger conferences offer a discount for advanced registration. A great money saving feature of attending a homeschooling conference is that many feature a used curriculum sale. Curriculum retailers and independent homeschool stores can also be found at homeschooling conferences,providing the opportunity to review a curriculum in depth prior to purchase, rather than being limited to the few pages that are featured on Amazon or some of the curriculum retailers website. The other benefit of the retailers being there is that you may be able to discuss your family’s curriculum needs and have their help in navigating the many available options. There are various seminars offered, including but not limited to choosing topics such as: curriculum, common pitfalls in teaching, and managing family life while homeschooling. Lastly, most of the Georgia homeschooling conferences have provided tracks for kids and teens, including entertainment for them, but not childcare for the younger children (although this may vary).
