You can go all out and get all the bells and whistles... Do I recommend that? No!
My rule of thumb is to NOT go out and spend a ton on curriculum. Why? You want your children to have the best, right? Well, spending a ton of money does not necessarily mean you are getting the best. It means you have spent a lot of money. When you go out and spend a ton of money on curriculum, you feel like you have to use it...primarily because it cost a lot of money. What if your child hates it? Then you are being counter productive. Find the best resources you can find at the best cost that you can find them in order to be flexible. When you are flexible, you can help your child love to learn. So, what DO I suggest?
