I need ideas on how to spend my son's allotment money.

Posted by   + Show Post

I decided last minute to register him to a state funded homeschool program. I already bought the complete curriculum, science kits, school supplies and etc. 

How will you spend the $2000? The computer and tablet are excluded from this allotment but I chose not to buy new computer or tablet. We don't need it right now. Maybe next  year.

Laminator and supplies? Printer?

If you have printers, I would buy printer paper and the ink toner. I would also buy some crayons and activity books. Along with pencils and erasers. You could also think about getting book bags/backpacks. Do you have a chalk board or a white board?

You're not getting none of those?

Maybe you should consider an English tutor?

Quoting mommy4lyf:


Everything that is related to his individual learning plan. Includings lessons and private tutors but we're not getting none of those.

Quoting usmom3:

 What are you allowed to spend it on?

No. It's not applicable. My son is receiving Speech Therapy 3x a week. I am considering Math tutor but not now. I can still handle it.

"we're not getting none of those" is a double negative and grammatically incorrect. If you are teaching him English, he should learn it from someone who can recognize it.

Yes. I am considering toners and papers coz I print workbooks and worksheets. Someone mentioned laminator (that... I don't have yet). I have 2 whiteboards already and easel papers I used a lot so I will include that in my list. Crayons and color pencils are always needed =)

Do they allow you to buy items like printers? We can't buy easels as they are considered furniture, not supplies.

My son have receptive-expressive language disorder. English tutor is not a priority right now. As, I said, he's receiving speech therapy 3x a week.


Sorry, English is just my second language...thank you for correcting me.

Just the easel pads for writing. Yes. The printers are also covered but I got two already.

You're fine. I assumed this isn't your native tongue. I have a deep love for the language, but I think it is nasty to behave in such a rude manner to someone who makes simple grammatical errors, and I am sorry that someone chose to use her sarcasm rather than her kindness when rudely correcting you.
