Welcome to my Homeschool Closet Giveaway--
— “[T]he Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
Valerie at Little Blots had this great idea for Homeschool Closet Giveaway (click the graphic to the right for her link) and I just LOVE It! What a generous and amazing idea!!
I realize we are about a week behind the other giveaways- but think of it as a "2nd chance to win." :) :)Listed below are the "shelves" I have to giveaway. Simply leave a comment on my blog with which shelves you are interested in and I will draw a winner this Friday, September 19th.
While you're here, check out some of my free schedules, forms, ideas and other homeschooling "helps." As well as our nature studies which really are the heart of my blog! :)
Shelf 1: Gently used set of Bob Jones Kindergarten "Beginnings" paper books. These were given to me by a dear friend that uses the BJU program. We school based on the Charlotte Mason method so we do not use BJU - however - they are still cute little readers for your younger student. My girls enjoyed "practicing" with the readers even though we do not use the program. As I said, they are gently used, some have the child's name written on the back in the certificate spot but otherwise GREAT condition ;).
This set includes 32 full-color readers which correlate with K5 Beginnings.
In all of the twelve page readers, you'll find one selection each of Bible
accounts, family stories, information books, and literature selections. The
"Reading Guide" in each reader gives parents advice on how to help beginning readers.
Shelf 2: Another BJU set that was passed along to me. The BJU 1st grade readers set. These are in GREAT, gently used condition. These are nice readers as well, even if you do not use the BJU program.
The six Student Texts contain a variety of colorfully illustrated stories, poems, plays, and articles.
A - Colors Glowing
B - Feathers, Fins, and Fur
C - Helping Hands
D - A Day to Remember
E - Hear the Music
F - Treasures to Keep
Shelf 3: Gently used (no marks or any bends) - "The Mudpies Activity Book- Recipes for Invention" by Nancy Blakey. Kids age 2-12.
Shelf 4: Set of 3 science readers. This shelf includes a prior library book, "Experiments with Animal Behavior" by Ovid K Wong; Scholastic "Butterflies" book (very simple, easy book- great for prek - k); Hello Reader! Level 4, "Armies of Ants" by Walter Retan. I will mention on the "Armies of Ants" book- there are mentions of "hundreds of thousands of years ago". Just a warning. You can easily skip over this part but I wanted to ensure it was pointed out.
So those are my 4 shelves for this week. I think this is such an amazing idea that we may continue it once a week or so. We have so many books laying around and its wonderful to be able to pass them along when we're finished! I think this is such a blessing!
Please comment before midnight on 9/19/08 and I will email the winners letting them know they've won. My son has a sparring tournament on Saturday so please bear with me as I get the emails out this weekend. :) Good luck!
In His Name,
