Rime to Read

We have had a chance to try Time 4 Learning with both of my girls recently. It is an online learning program. They set up an account for each child and the lessons are based on your child's level of learning. Of course if you want to change those levels you can change them to higher or lower if your child needs that.
They have a timer that you as a parent can set for a certain amount of time and the children must do that amount of lessons to get to go to the playground. The playground is all kinds of fun online games. Mine love the lessons almost as much as the playground. My oldest especially loves using the computer to do school work and looks forward to doing it as much as possible. She has learned a lot from Time 4 Learning in the short time that we have used it. She would love to continue the subscription!
- 4 grade levels to choose from!
- Pre-K to 1st grade
- 2nd to 3rd grade
- 4th to 5th grade
- 6th to 8th grade
- Cost is $19.95 per month for first child
- Cost of $14.95 per month for each additional child
We have been learning the names of the States this school year and making a United States Notebook. We have been learning each state and where it is located, the state flower, bird and flag. My oldest has learned a lot of information doing this and has developed an interest in The United States map. So we were excited to get this book in the mail. It is a cute book that teaches all the States with rhymes. My husband and I have really enjoyed sharing about The Little Man In The Map to all our family and friends! So many people have never noticed him there before!
I have always enjoyed learning things with rhymes and songs and so do my children. So this book is perfect for that! My kids like to make up songs and rhymes all the time for learning things. So if you are trying to create a joy for learning in your children go to Schoolside Press and see the book. You can get the book for $19.95. The Little Man In The Map Wall Map is $21.95! They have a combo special for both items for the price of $35.00. They are also offering FREE SHIPPING for the holidays! This would be a great gift for your children or grandchildren this year!
The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
is having an amazing sale on subscriptions during their annual Black Friday Sale November 26 – 30. For those 5 days only, they are drastically reducing their one-year subscription price to $7.95! That's the price you would usually pay for just one issue at a bookstore!
This is their lowest price ever on the magazine and they want all of you to take advantage of this offer and share the info with your friends.
Please don't miss out. Your one-year subscription will pay for itself time and time again as you receive practical tips and Biblical encouragement to keep going strong in your commitment to homeschooling and to the Lord. Since it's a quarterly magazine, they even have a monthly subscriber's only E-Newsletter called Teacher's Toolbox that will give you seasonal teaching ideas and a free E-Book download! It's like joining a unit study of the month club! The free E-Books alone are valued at almost $250/year. It's really perfect for people who are homeschooling on a shoestring or just wanting to add in some little extras to your teaching.
Plus during the Black Friday Sale, they have all kind of bonus gifts when you spend $50, $75, $100, or $150. Some are electronic downloads that you can download immediately, while other are physical products mailed from various vendors directly to your home.
AND, their Win Big contest is going on so if you just happen to be customer 67,000, you will receive a prize package valued at almost $500 which includes a $150 gift certificate to the Schoolhouse Store! Who couldn't use that? And you can qualify to win it no matter how much or how little you spend!
Mark your calendars for November 26 - 30th and do a little shopping from your seat, not your feet at the Schoolhouse Store's Black Friday Sale!

There are 26 lessons that you get when you subscribe. One lesson each week will come to your email. With each lesson also come a lot of freebies. Over $250.00 worth of free curriculum. In fact right now on the site there is a 5 day free mini class! You can sign up and see if it is something that you think would benefit your family.
The cost of the 26 lessons is only $10.00 per month for 6 months! That equals out to only $2.30 per lesson! I spent more on books that didn't help me! I highly recommend it! I don't think you will be at all disappointed with the lessons. In fact I can't wait to get the rest of them myself. So go and see for yourself at Homeschooling ABC's!
Thanks so much to Terri Johnson for allowing our family to review your site! We love it!

This book was written for young people about pre-teen age, so it wasn't on my children's level. So Mom had to read it. I will say it was a bit difficult to keep my mind on it. Probably due to my age and to my taste in books to read. I feel that young people who like mystery novels and fast paced books would have no problem with enjoying the book. Here is a little bit of informaition about the book from the back cover.
Encountering a deadly illness, the Murphys must also wrestle with a startling discovery and its potential results. The Missing Link has been discovered, finally providing evidence for the theory of evolution. But, what about the Bible? Didn't God create the world as recorded in Genesis? In addition, is there a connection between their adventure on the high seas and their discoveries a the dig site? Join the Murphys as they are faced with danger and a race against time in search for the truth.
So go right over to Media Angels and get your copy today. For just $8.99 you can get this book. For $22.00 you can get the 3 book set! They have lots of other books available at the Media Angels Store also. So go by and see what you think.
