As homeschoolers, we talk a lot about curriculum and what is the best curriculum for homeschooling, but we talk a lot less often about what else we need to homeschool successfully.
This year, I compiled a list of supplies that we find essential (and some that are nice to have but not necessarily must-haves) for several different homeschooling subjects and today, I’m sharing them all with you!
