Weekend homeschool links

Did you hear that this week Amazon (in the US) reduced the price of the paperback version of Give Your Child the World to just $7?!

I don’t know how long this deal will last, but I hope you’ll snag a copy for yourself or a friend while you can. Right now they’ve run out, but more are on the way. Enjoy and thanks for the support, friends!

I would have LOVED this preschool program if it had been available back in the day–with its focus on the liberal arts & its gentle simplicity. And right now you can snap up Artsy Startsy for 35% OFF with the code “sprung” to kick off spring!

For those itching to get started ‪homeschooling, this is a lovely way to spend intentional time with littles. Be sure to peek at the sample week.

Have you ever taken a peek at All About Reading or All About Spelling?

These popular homeschooling programs provide “open and go” lesson plans that are multi-sensory and based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, a method that has transformed language arts for many homeschool families.

When asked what curriculum I’d recommend for someone just getting started with homeschooling, I often mention Oak Meadow

In our early homeschooling years OM gave a lovely blueprint to our days, offering both gentle structure & flexibility. Their creative, holistic curricula goes from PreK-12th, w/ an optional accredited distance school to join.

What better way to get kids interested in the STEM fields than with hands-on experiments? (Homemade chocolate anyone?!!)

Home Science Tools has everything you need, all in organized kits! From tech to physics to even forensic science, they’ve got you covered.
