My recommendations this week:
I love this journal (for kids ages 5-10, I’d say) and I’m so happy to see that Amazon finally has it back in stock. We’ve used this one for years and I was pleased when the kids asked to make sure we’d be bringing them on our vacation this week.
Check out what’s FREE on Kindle right now – I appreciate books like this that help our kids fall in love with numbers and realize how interesting & relevant they are in our lives! This one takes a look at the number four & the many different ways it appears in the world.
Featured sponsors this week:
Those of you who use All About Reading might be happy to hear that Level 4 has just been released…AND for one week only it is being offered at $20 off! This popular program doesn’t often go on sale so it’s worth checking out if it peeks your interest.
Such a fun new discovery for our homeschool with The World’s Most Fascinating Rock Collection delivered to our door each month!
I loved collecting rocks as a kid, and this is a beautiful way to learn about & display them.
Brave Writer’s approach focuses on enjoying writing & using it to build relationship and love of learning (instead of a hate of learning, which so often happens with this subject!)
Julie offers both curricula and interactive online classes & you can download freewriting lessons to try out here.
