Several Recommendations to Share!!

I want to share several new finds that are helping us with our learning journey!

One is an online curriculum/supplement site. It is designed with a full Language Arts and Math curriculum for K-8th grade. They throw in Science and Social Studies as bonuses (which include tons of great info your kids need to know).

It is set up for a monthly fee per child, with discounts for 2 or more children enrolling.

Please check out the site at:    http://www.time4learning.com/

If you decide to try it out, please list me as  your referrer… Wendy Clayton

****************************************************************

Number two is a great site for swapping Paperback (or any other) books! It is called Paperback Swap.

The site is:    http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php

It is fun and wonderful! You start out with 2 credits to get 2 books as soon as  you list 10 books to swap.

If you try it out…it is free….please use my nickname:   wencla     or my real name Wendy Clayton,  as your referrer!

You can also request to be my “buddy” by using my nickname: wencla

This is a great site with unit study resource, lapbooking resources and much, much more! Take a minute to check it out! I am sure you will find something to help you with your schooling or to give your child something fun to do in their free time!

Here is another great freebie to whet your appetite for the upcoming Ultimate Homeschool Expo–set to launch on Monday, April 28th!

I just got an email from my friend, Cindy Rushton. She is “pumped” about her upcoming Ultimate Homeschool Expo. Actually, she is so “pumped” that she has just shared a sneak peek into her Membership Site.

You see one of the neat things about the Ultimate Homeschool Expo is that everything is ONLINE. Cindy builds a private, exclusive Membership Site that includes everything from the UHSE in one place–it has audios (from all of the sessions and from the bonus gifts that her speakers give to us), ebooks, complete unit study guides, articles, printable notebooking pages, cookbooks, on and on. I can’t believe all of the things that we receive for only $40. It is truly ULTIMATE!

Anyway, back to the reason that I am sharing with you…

Cindy just sent me permission to give you a sampler of one of her free gifts that is included on the Membership Site. I am so excited to give it to you! It is a audio and ebook set that she actually sells on her website, but she is giving away on the Membership Site. Here is the link:
