Yes You Can Homeschool and This Can Help!

The fact you’re here, reading this article tells me that you care about your child’s education. I know it can feel overwhelming for a parent considering homeschooling. There are so many things to consider, so many things to do, and what seems like so little time until school starts. So, where do you start?

Just start with what matters most to you. Make one small change at a time. Take one step at a time. You don’t have to get everything right to make a meaningful impact on your child. The fact is, homeschooling doesn’t have to take up a lot of time and it doesn’t need to cost a lot, either.

You are your child’s first and best teacher. You are smart, capable, and the best person to determine your family’s most important homeschool goals and create a path for your child’s success. I know you can do this! And I’m here to help if you get stuck or need more encouragement.

Looking at all the resources out there and the cost and not sure where to start? I have great news! Right now, you can get homeschool inspiration and resources in one place with The Ultimate Homeschooling Bundle. Get 51 eBooks, eCourses, and printables to help you homeschool – from preschool through high school! It’s all 97% off for 5 days only.

Honestly, it’s a no-brainer. Even if you only homeschool this year and only use a few resources, you’ll get your money’s worth. The cost is just $29.50 US and most resources are worth more than that when you purchase them separately. Many of these resources are for you, the parent, such as the “Techie Homeschool Mom’s Guide to Digital Student Projects” eCourse (reg $24.00) that helps you learn to create digital projects that fit for any lesson plan. And “5 Days to Your Best Homeschool YearseCourse from my friend Ana Willis (reg $77.00) that shows you how to experience a more peaceful, joyful, organized, and smooth homeschool journey!

When you grab the bundle by Tuesday at midnight, you get this amazing bonus:

But wait, there’s more! (Haha, that’s so cliché). If you purchase via my link, simply forward me your receipt from the folks at Ultimate Bundles and I’ll gift you a copy of my Digital Homeschool Organization Pack. It’ll even help you organize your bundle resources so you don’t forget about them. It currently sells for $15 but it’s yours free with purchase. Simply send that receipt to [email protected]

And if you try the Ultimate Homeschooling Bundle and don’t find anything you like (which I don’t think will happen!) you do have a 30 day money back guarantee.

Homeschool Resources Under $30

Are you struggling through the winter doldrums? Do you need to mix things up with some fun activities and curricula for your kids? Check out these homeschool resources under $30.

Here’s a list of the best affordable homeschool resources – all available for $30 or less on Educents.

Helpful Resources

Homeschool Music Journeys – Twelve activities and eight colouring pages introduce kids to a world of music-related fun, from Australian clapsticks to Indian ankle bells and Egyptian rattles. These projects fit perfectly into any homeschool curriculum where music is a part of the learning and discovery!

Photography Lessons for Kids – Add some fun to your homeschool! Whether your kids have a point and shoot or a DSLR camera, the fundamental rules of photography can still be taught.

Math Resources

Times Tales DVD – Kids can learn their times tables in a snap! We have used the paper version of Times Tales and it really works! Most homeschoolers say the DVD only takes about an hour to teach kids the upper times tables. There’s also a downloadable version available.

Life of Fred Math Stories – After reading the Fred books, kids will never say “math is boring” ever again. My daughter was getting into a slump and needed to take a break from our regular math curriculum. These books are really helping her understand the concepts. Fictional stories weave in math concepts with real world examples. Start with the Apples book for early math, and follow Fred all the way to calculus lessons!

Science Activities

Early Access Tyto Online – Learn, create, and play with your student. These polymers can help teach measurements, chemical reactions, and following directions.

One Minute Science Mysteries – Each story, just one minute long, challenges students’ knowledge in earth, space, life, physical, chemical, and general science.

Language Arts Games & Lessons

Silly Stories Cursive Handwriting Practice – This copybook uses wacky classic tales to provide a fun platform for cursive handwriting practice lessons. It’s fun for everyone!

The Best of StoryClub – Video Picture Books – Video Picture Books Featuring Real, On-Screen Storytellers mixed with amazing Picture Book Illustrations. Great for bedtime, Naptime…Anytime!

uKloo Early Riddle Edition Treasure Hunt Game – Disguised as a treasure hunt, this literacy game gets kids physically active as they strengthen reading comprehension skills while solving clues to find a surprise.

Introducing the NEW Educents Marketplace

Introducing the NEW Educents Marketplace

I just received an email from the founders of Educents, Kate and Kaitlyn, with some really exciting news. Until today, Educents was a website for parents and educators to take advantage of daily deals. But those deals expired… And there were only 50 deals available at once… I wanted saving money to be even EASIER. Kate and Kaitlyn agreed. So they created the new Educents Marketplace. It’s even easier to discover affordable educational resources that make learning FUN!

Thousands of new products – Educents Sellers can now offer ALL of their bestsellers on the new Educents Marketplace. There’s a wide variety of worksheets, lesson plans, educational apps and toys. Shop The Young Scientists Club, Scholastic, Workman Publishing, Alpha Omega Publishing, Life of Fred books, hundreds of printable units created by educators, and more!

Offers that NEVER expire – Sellers can offer our favorite educational products year-round. Once a deeply discounted Daily Deal expires, you can still find that product available on Educents at the lowest price.

Discovery – It’s easier to search on Educents. Search for your kiddos’ interests like Minecraft or Frozen-inspired resources, and then sort by grade level, subject, brand, and more!

Follow your favorite brands and Sellers – The “Follow Me” feature lets me add my favorite Sellers to a list. Click the heart on the Seller Storefront. You can also see which Sellers are the most popular with other shoppers!

The Educents Marketplace is exactly what I want it to be — the best place for parents and educators to find the resources I NEED at an affordable price.

Love, Luck &
Laughter,
