Homeschool Discoveries

Sharing a few things I've discovered along the way…

All Quiet on the Bloggy Front… August 12, 2012

Filed under: News and Info — kirstenjoyhill @ 11:59 pm

Things may be pretty quiet around here for the next couple weeks (August 13th through August 26th).  I’m directing Vacation Bible Camp at our church this week, and then we’re taking 11 days of vacation/stay-cation.   I may write a post or two if I really feel like it…but don’t be entirely surprised if nothing shows up here for these two weeks.  I have a lot of posts in mind, so there should be some interesting things here to read after that! 🙂

I’m participating in the Summer 2012 Curriculum Clean-Out hosted by Jolanthe @ Homeschool Creations!  This link-up is full of give aways from bloggers who want to get rid of homeschool items that are sitting on the shelf gathering dust.  I will send one lucky reader a package of four items for preschool or kindergarten age students:

This package includes:

  • Playful Learning: Backyard Discoveries (easy nature-related science activities)
  • Mother Goose Math (nursery-rhyme themed math activities)
  • Teaching a Young Child to Read by Wood Smethurst (simple activities to work on reading skills)
  • Preschool Projects: Construction (ideas for a PreK or K unit study on this topic)

Would you like to win all four of these items? Just leave a comment on this post! You can get a second entry by subscribing via email or RSS and then leave a comment letting me know that you subscribe!

This giveaway is open to US addresses only.  Entries will close on August 4th and a winner will be selected via random number on August 5th.
