 Okay ladies, what curriculum or supply do you spend the very most amount of money on?  And Why?  What is your logic behind it. 

This is curiosity so please don't bash each other's responses.

Science.  I bought a text book, student notebook, and full lab kit for 7th grade.  I think I spend about $175 on it.

My English major ways don't do me a favor when I have to read emails and such from schools.  Seriously, if you're teaching my kid and grading my kid, make sure whatever you send out is grammatically correct.  Just sayin'.

Quoting bluerooffarm:

 Hey, Fred's cool!  Don't change till (unless) you need to.

Yeah, honestly the backa nd forth property.  As someone with a math concentration that nearly made my head explode. LOL

Quoting hwblyf:


Maybe I'll have to revisit.  I'm just happy with Fred right now, though, so it's not a high priority.  :)  Honestly, back and forth property?  Hmm....

 I'm a grammar police, so it bothers me too.  I try to ignore it everywhere, although sometimes it gets the better of me.  :-)

 What do you like about all about reading?  What makes it special?  All phonics programs seem a lot alike to me.

 what i like about 'all about reading' the teachers plan on how to go about it is very easy to understand, it doenst seem boring(when i start teaching with it will see about boring!!) nice short lessons, i like the rhyming and word games

its probably like all the other programs, but this one seems funner(i know not a word) more interesting for the kids, and short and to the point.

*oh yea i forgot! the poetry! thats my favorite!

 Short and to the point is important.  Let us know how it works.

 That's my reasoning for spending so much on Math, too.  It really just keeps building right along.
