Homeschool Freebies  and Giveaways

More Resources to focus on the Heart of Homeschooling

One of the very best homeschooling books I have mentioned and studied over and over is "Educating the Wholehearted Child" by Clay and Sally Clarkson. Numerous times, you would have seen me mention this book on my site and we have discussed it in our homeschool mum's study group for years.

This week it's our homeschool freebie!!

More Homeschool Deals happening right now!

This is the time to stock up for the next year as there are so many homeschooling deals around. Here's a few of my top picks. They're not freebies - but they're great deals!

Compass Classroom

I just love Compass Classroom materials, so I want to share some of their best products.

One I'm really love the look of is Homeschool Made Simple with Carol Joy Seid . This is a new series designed especially for homeschool parents. Carole Joy Seid has almost 30 years experience teaching thousands of moms and dads a literature-based approach to homeschooling.

Compass Classroom have excellent materials and I highly recommend WordUp - such a fun vocab show!

Dwane Thomas stars in this zany new show teaching Latin and Greek roots, as well as hundreds of English words.

Visual Latin  - really excellent material also by Dwane Thomas.

Economics - a wonderful video series which we tied in with Biblical Economics.

So, if you'd love to learn a craft, join a class and your kids can join you at the kitchen table as you learn it with them.

Circle Time by Preschooers and Peace!

Circle Time is our fabulous, all-ages-are-welcome, group teaching time that allows us to pray together, laugh together, and get to the subjects we often run out of time for.

Although I didn't call it "circle time" - that in essence is what it was.  A time for the family to do things together - such as memorizing, reciting poetry, reading aloud, praying, Bible study, hymn studies etc.. Whatever you'd like to do as a family. A great way to start the day!

SQUILT- Music Appreciation Curriculum

What a wonderful way to teach your children about beautiful music.  Super Quiet Uninterrupted Listening Time is the vehicle to do that! Teach how to listen, teach what to listen for. Mary Prather describes it in more detail in the video below. You can now buy all 4 volumes for $45.

Well - there's my top pick Homeschool Deals! Enjoy..

And if you've read this far down the page - send me what you're kids have been doing or plan to do and we'll make it look like a fancy "curriculum plan." (especially for the newbies who are anxious...)
