My friend, Nancy recently called me to ask if I knew where she could get an i.d. card for her homeschooled teen who needs a picture i.d. to take the SAT test. I knew just where to send her because I needed a teacher i.d. to get into Six Flags for free last year.
I was able to get a professionally printed, plastic teacher i.d. card with photo from Homeschool Buyers Co-op. You can print your own teacher or student i.d. card, or have them send you a plastic one for $6.95.
I also got a discounted driver’s ed program from Homeschool Buyers Co-op last year. It is free to join, and they send regular emails listing discounts available on various curriculum.
Another resource I use regularly is Plugged In, which is Focus on the Family’s site to review movies, videos, music and tv shows. I just type in the show or movie I want to know about and the site gives me a summary, plus “positive elements”, “spiritual content”, “sexual content”, “violent content”, “crude or profane language”, “drug or alcohol content”, “other negative elements”, and a “conclusion”.
