Convention 2011:Purchases

I did not need a lot of new curriculum this year, we are going to be straddling years with what we have on hand. So I took this years convention as a chance to find some fun learning items.

We really enjoy the Opal Wheeler composer series. We are reading Bach right now and G is learning one of the included Minuets in piano lesson. I chose Brahms and Schubert to compliment our Story of the World studies.

I always stock up on Jim Weiss Cds that will enhance our history study.

We purchased these stop motion movies from the homeschool creators. I hope they will give G some new ideas.
I have had this book wish listed on Amazon for quite a while. I opened it up and really think it will be some real world fun. Zaccaro was the only speaker I wanted to see that I didn't get to this year.
I hope these EMA board games are as fun as they look... if not now them they will be a great resource later.
Daddy had never seen one of these chess sets... he wanted this more than G. giggle

I thought this simple game looked really fun but was worried G wouldn't think so. I was so wrong. He enjoyed it as soon as the vendor taught him how to play.

G loves look and find puzzles... this game fills that love.
Another game I hope it is as fun as it looks. I got it on good authority that it is great family fun.

The price tag of this science kit really threw me off but the benefits won me over. Won me over so much I actually bought 2! I plan on doing a post just on this product soon.

A bag full of OOOHS and AHHHHHS! We are putting up the chemistry text for the rest of the year and using this kit. 70 experiments! This one gets it's own post too. I got a great convention deal from Timberdoodle for $25!
