The final piece of our curriculum was ordered yesterday. I’ll admit – I waited until the last moment on this one, but I also knew there was a sale coming up, and let’s face it – every dollar counts!
That said, below I included a few links for reading when you have a minute, both encouragement for moms and fun for kids, as well as are some VERY time-sensitive offers below, so be sure to check them out if you are interested!
Summer seems like the perfect time to tackle ALL THE BOOKS that have been catching my eye. To inhale fiction like candy, if you will.
Our summer plans to sit and relax by the pool have come to a bit of a halt as our pool decided to close for the summer (I’m not going to cry), so instead we are creating cozy spaces around the house to curl up and enjoy new authors.
One thing that I have been dipping into a bit more over the last few months – audiobooks. I recently discovered Chirp (discounted audiobooks) and Libro.fm (get a free month here) and am still finding my groove with listening/following along with the stories.
Do you find audiobooks or paper/digital books easier to follow?
One of the difficulties I find for myself in listening to audiobooks is the ability to not drift off mentally. Also, having the same “voice” reading a story makes it difficult for me to follow a story line (especially early on) when there are character/view shifts, especially...
Well, this year certainly didn’t end quite as we expected. At the start of this year I had different ideas in place for how things would wrap up, especially since our ending last year went completely off the rails as well.
Different expectations for our kids and especially myself.
And then it all went haywire again.
While schools around us assigned grades after their third quarter ended, we kept at our classes and are finishing them up, much to the dismay of some kids. (Yeah, I’m mean like that.)
It has meant later mornings. More relaxed days (as in, my kids ate CAKE for breakfast one morning). But with that relaxing, the structure of our days fell apart with everyone home (including my hubby to work). Pretty much as life for everyone around us.
All that said, we are pretty much wrapped up with our school year. Zoom calls were set up to work on group classes (science and personal finance).
One child has only science to finish up (Kaleb), another has geometry...
With many families in the midst of planning and buying homeschool curriculum for the upcoming school year, it’s helpful to see the ways in which money (and time) can be saved!
From now until May 18, 2020, the Build Your Bundle sale offers amazing savings along with well-known curriculum. It is packed full of resources for both your home and your school – a little something for everyone.
There are SO many things in the Build Your Bundle salethat I am excited to share with you! Several of the products are ones that we have used in years past (or highly recommend), including A Journey Through Learning, BiblioPlan, See the Light Art, 1+1+1=1, The Crafty Classroom, and our own Pattern Block Bundle. I’m planning on taking advantage of several of the items myself and will be sharing my choices with you soon.
Bundle sales can often seem overwhelming – I know! The first year of this sale, I felt completely backwards. There is so much to dig through but so many gems...
In less than a week, the 2020 Build Your Bundle homeschool sale is coming – Monday, May 11 to be exact. We are taking part again this year as a contributor (and also a purchaser) – and there are so many fabulous publishers and products to share.
There are over $5800 in prizes are up for grabs in this year’s giveaway! Plus, if you enter before the sale launches on May 11th, you’ll get a chance to win every single bundle in this years’ sale! It doesn’t get much better than that!
