I know what our curric cost, but I honestly couldn't tell you what I spent on extra supplies, extra curric and sure don't know what we spent on field trips. It was definitely worth every penny spent though!!!
This year curric cost more b/c my LO is going to need 1st grade and that cost more than K. We will see where the field trips lead us.
Not very much, maybe $100. I only have one child in school at the moment and plan on spending more this coming school year. For Kindergarten we used K12 and for 1st grade we will be using our own curriculum. I'm very excited and I'm still in the budgeting stage and deciding which curriculum we will use.
Quoting chotovec82:This school year was just getting started and I easily spent a thousand dollars. Next school year will be less. I already have most of his books. I still do have to buy Math U can see (primer and whatever Aiden tests into), All About Reading (pre reading and whatever Aiden tests into), and growing with grammar lvl. 2 and winning with writing. So i'm looking at about 440 bucks to still spend.
I'm building my girls a desk this year, plus I have a bunch of school supplies that I've collected over the last couple years (the schools keep getting low or running out and needing us to send more, so I thought I'd be prepared). So I know I'm gonna be spending a little more this year because of the desk and just getting their learning area prepared... but I'm also gonna save a little on school supplies because I've got some stocked up. I'm expecting about $200-$300.
So far I've only spent $163. I still need about two books so for books alone I'm hoping to be under $200.Zoo membership is $75 and I'm sure I'll spend another $100 on supplies. Next year I will probably spend a lot more since there is a packed curriculm that I am interested in but it starts at 3rd grade.
