We Love Our Sponsors

I have to say that I am SO excited to share a few more of our FANTABULOUS Sponsors with you today. I love being able to share the yummy goodness that I love with other homeschooling families.

Firstly, I’m so excited for whom ever wins this wonderful prize from Whole Heart Ministries. As a veteran homeschooling mom, this book was the first one that I encountered all those years ago. To this day, 10 years later, it IS my all time favorite go to resource ever.

Whole Heart Ministries is donating 1 copy of Educating the WholeHearted Child Ebook.

Our heart’s desire in Educating the WholeHearted Child is to give Christian parents who desire to homeschool a detailed and trustworthy map that will enable them to confidently and joyfully follow the path of biblical home education from beginning to end.

The WholeHearted learning model of Christian home education presented in this book is a comprehensive, uncomplicated, commonsense, Biblical approach to homeschooling that integrates all required areas of study for children aged 4-14. It shows you how to use real books, real life, and real relationships to liberate learning in your home from the tyranny of textbooks, the grip of curricula, and the rigid rules of school.

Understand, though, that this book is not a curriculum. We do not tell you what to do every step of the way since you and your family situation are unique. Rather, this book is about a way of thinking about your home that will guide you onto and along the right path and will give you all the tools and help you need to walk it confidently with your children.

You’ll find 384 help-filled pages packed with useful information, insights, and encouragement:
■Ideas: Hundreds of practical ideas, teaching methods, lifestyle suggestions, and product recommendations
■Insights: Dozens of scriptures, personal anecdotes, quotes, notes, and comments
■Anecdotes: Dozens of “In Our Home” snapshots of Clarkson family living
■Books: A recommended “Family Favorites” reading list of whole and living books
■Helps: A section of reproducible forms for planning and record-keeping

Approx value $24

 

As a Food Storage kinda gal, I love this next prize. YAY to whom ever wins this wonderful addition to, or starter to, their own home food storage.

Shelf Reliance is donating 1 Cansolidator Pantry

Cansolidator Pantry Can Rotation System holds and rotates up to 40 cans. First can in is the first can out, preventing lost and expired cans forgotten at the back of your pantry!

Approx value $44.99.

 

And lastly, what is one of the best things about homeschooling? Simply that it can be so much FUN! This wonderful sponsor and their generous prize offering makes that all the more possible.

SimplyFun is donating 20 Sum It Up Sets – one for each winner.

Make learning about math, vocabulary, and money fun with this special collection of SimplyFun games!

Approx value $92/each.

Homeschooling Programming


Our kiddos are huge fans of Homeschool Programming. Which makes me one even more so! The self-study courses are teaching each of them to write their own computer programs and games.

Prize 1: ( Category to be determined)
KidCoder: Windows Programming
The first semester course teaches 4th-8th grade kids the fundamentals of Visual Basic and creating Windows applications. Students learn about computers and logical thinking skills. This course is the springboard into the second semester KidCoder: Game Programming course.

Prize 2: (Category to be determined)
TeenCoder: Windows Programming
The introductory course teaches 9th-12th grade teens the Microsoft C# language, Windows programming, object-oriented programming and important computer science concepts. This course is the pre-requisite for the second semester TeenCoder: Game Programming course.

Both prizes will come with exclusive instructional videos. Homeschool Programming covers every chapter and lesson topic with animated, audio-visual Flash movies to prepare students for the textbook material. Watch screen-casts of the instructor walking through key parts of the development software and activities!
