Where to go for a boost of homeschool inspiration

This giveaway has ended; thanks for your interest!

Welcome to a giveaway–sponsored by my friends at Great Homeschool Conventions:

“Great Homeschool Conventions is in full convention season! With our first two conventions under our belt, we are ready for the next two, no… THREE events! 

We recently “adopted” an established St. Louis convention, and we’re so excited to be working with the previous organizers this year and in the coming years as we expand the St. Louis Homeschool Convention. We decided to host the St. Louis event this year, July 13-15th, so the folks in that area won’t miss their annual event.

For all our homeschool events, we strive to educate by providing speakers who are professionals in their field, who can better prepare you for the journey, aspire to encourage you as you connect with like-minded, grace-filled families, and equip you with comprehensive curriculum choices in the largest homeschool curriculum halls in the country.”

The 2017 dates and locations are:

  • TEXAS Homeschool Convention, Fort Worth Convention Center, Fort Worth, TX – February 23-25, 2017 – We had a great event! Make plans to attend in 2018 – March 15 – 17th!
  • SOUTHEAST Homeschool Convention, TD Convention Center, Greenville, SC, March 16-18, 2017 – We had a great event! Make plans to attend in 2018 – March 8 – 10th.

Still to come….

Giveaway: $140 K-5 science package from Be Naturally Curious

Welcome to this week’s giveaway–sponsored by Be Naturally Curious!

From Valerie at Be Naturally Curious:

“I am a mom to two energetic and inquisitive young girls and also happen to be a former college Biology professor.

One of my greatest passions in life is to help ALL kids experience the joy in learning science and exploring nature!

I believe this is best done by focusing on concepts and reinforcing learning with multiple, non-traditional teaching techniques, which is why I started Be Naturally Curious, creating science and nature mini-courses for kids grades K-5.

I love to share and discuss ideas about science and learning on our Facebook page —please come connect with us!”

Giveaway: $320 geography package from Pin It! Maps

Pin It! Maps

This giveaway has ended; thanks for your interest!

A note from Jamie: I’m such a huge fan of these hands-on maps! I’ve taken to leaving one on our coffee table with the needed pins stuck in the corner of the map. Whenever I pass by later in the day, one of the kids has put the pins in the right places. It’s part of my covert learning operations plan! 😉

Welcome to this week’s giveaway–sponsored by Pin It! Maps.

From Sara of Pin It! Maps:

“Excite your children with hands-on geography fun!

Pin It! Maps are large hands-on pin maps with colorful name and national flags. The Ultimate Bundle of Pin It Maps includes 12 pin maps, 41 control maps, and 1,752 flags.

Children will learn by pinning locations on the pin map, looking at the labeled maps and then putting the labeled map away (it can be used to check work.)

Students can work at their own pace with these. It’s a fun, hands-on activity; kids love it and adults love it because children can work independently.

In the past Pin It Maps have been limited to Montessori schools because of their high cost. This is an affordable set for homeschoolers.”
