The Master and His Apprentices textbook and companion teacher guide are now available through Rainbow Resource Center (rainbowresource.com). Started in 1989, Rainbow Resource Center is the premier homeschool product catalog. Their selection of over 50,000 items includes individual favorites like Saxon Math, Apologia Science, and Andrew Pudewa’s Excellence in Writing in addition to complete curriculum sets from publishers like Alpha-Omega, Abeka, and Bob Jones University Press. Of course, there are also countless other options, including a myriad of standalone elective courses.
If you have not yet looked through a Rainbow Resource Center Catalog, I suggest you do! I still have fond memories of pouring over the annual catalog with my mom as we picked out our homeschool curriculum. Naturally, our core curricula, like Saxon Math, didn’t change, but choosing new elective classes was always a highlight for me. Letting older students research and choose their own electives can be a great way to get them excited about studying. Plus, you never know what this exercise could lead to as kids learn about fields related to their interests. Personally, it was experimenting with different curricula that ultimately set me on the path to writing a homeschool art curriculum!
Now, being a visual learner, I often wanted to physically see curricula before making a final decision. Especially knowing I would have to complete whatever I chose! This is one of the many reasons homeschool conferences are so helpful with their extensive vendor halls. Every year, Rainbow Resource Center has one of the largest booths at dozens of conferences throughout the United States. More impressively, a typical booth layout has 3,800-4,200 products displayed!
While some of these resources can be purchased on the spot, others are samples and will need to be ordered and shipped to your home. However, all orders placed at homeschool conferences receive free shipping. This applies even when the total doesn’t hit the usual $50 threshold to receive this discount. A list of conferences Rainbow Resource Center will be attending in 2018 can be viewed here. We highly recommend you check them out when they are in your area!
While not all resources are Christian in focus, I believe that Rainbow Resource Center does an excellent job of offering quality homeschool products that will help raise Godly children. For this reason and more, I am excited to partner with Rainbow Resource Center! You can now find The Master and His Apprentices textbook and teacher guide (physical and digital) on their website. I sincerely hope your family benefits from their products as much as mine!
