Benefitting from the Homeschool Convention Part Two

Now that I have some idea of what I need to look at I’m ready to head over to the convention website and make a plan of attack. I have a babysitter for the whole day, but I love curriculum and I know how easily I can a: get sidetracked and b: overspend.

So looking at the schedule I don’t see any workshops that I want to attend until mid-afternoon. I’m not sure what time I’ll get into the use curriculum sale so I’ll have to adjust this once I find out when that is..

My plan at the moment is:

9 am Arrive, find parking and finish registering

9:30 Take a swing through the exhibit hall and write down the locations of the vendors I want to see. I’ve already been checking the vendor list online to see whose coming so I have some idea of who to look for.

10:00 Sit down somewhere and look at that list, break it down by subject.

10:15 Start looking at Science materials

11:00 Switch from looking at Science materials to looking at Foreign Language Materials

11:45 Find a place to sit down, eat lunch and look at my notes

12:15 Back to the Exhibit Hall to look at biographies, History, and Geography materials

1:30 Either go to a workshop or look at Math manipulatives

2:30 Out of the workshop if I went 1/2 hour to look at whatever I want before going to another workshop at

3:00 Workshop

4:00 Finish up shopping and come home.


Wow! that looks exhausting already….

    You didn’t schedule in time to catch up with old friends! That part always threw off the rest of my schedule. 🙂

      Well, it’s been so long since I moved in these circles I’m not really expecting to see any! That is a good point though…K
