40% off Grapevine Studies for Students – through February 7th only!

Over the years our kids have drawn their way through multiple Bible stories using simple stick figures and learned so many Biblical facts and truths. They’ve even started using stick figure drawing in their other subjects, like history, because the method has been so effective for remembering what they are learning.

They have some fabulous studies to finish out your school year, including an 11 week study on the Resurrection. Our kids loved that study! 

Save 40% on Grapevine Student Books

Grapevine Studies student book and student ebooks sale.
 

Through February 7th you can take a whopping 40% off all student books and student ebooks from Grapevine! This is their BIGGEST sale of the year and one you don’t want to miss.

 

About-Levels Books-or-eBooks FAQ-page

 

If you’re not sure where to start, browse the Grapevine site a little and get an idea of what would be a good fit for your family. There are studies and ebooks for preschoolers through family studies. We’ve always chosen the ebook versions of each study, loaded the teacher’s manuals on my iPad, and printed off what we need for the kids.

What We Love About Grapevine

  • Four-square layout for the studies ~ this feature saves a lot of paper space and ink on printing.
  • Multi-colored stick figures ~ the variety keeps the kids really involved in the details of the drawings, even though the drawings are based on stick figures
  • The ebook works PERFECTLY on iPads and Kindles ~ Teachers can save more paper and ink by using the ebooks on laptops or iPad. This feature has changed my opinion of ebooks!!
  • It is multi-aged focused ~ I love that we can use this with all of our kids, and everyone is learning during the lessons. The visual aspect helps the kids remember more about the lessons and the fact that we can work together as a family means a lot to me.

Heirloom Audio Productions

Heirloom Audio dramas

Heirloom Audio has fast become one of our favorite audio adventures to pop in at home or in the car. Combining historical learning with fast-paced adventure makes for an amazingly wonderful learning tool for the entire family. We have listened (and relistened) to all five of their dramas and highly recommend them. Their NEWEST adventure, The Cat of Bubastes, has been released and it is equally as good as the first five! 

Recently I shared about the 5 Reasons We Recommend Heirloom Audio, but wanted to remind you all of a special they have for my readers. Each audio drama is usually $29.97, but you can order a four audio adventure set (two of each drama) – one set for your family and one set to give away at a HUGE savings. In the past we’ve ordered together with a friend, making the deal only $10 for each CD set. You will also receive several bonus items, including teaching guides and soundtracks for each adventure.

Kwik Stix have a fast drying formula that allow them to dry in 90 seconds while still leaving a paint-like finish! No cups, smocks, water or brushes required. Kwik Stix come in assorted vibrant colors with coverage that won’t crack. Great on poster paper, cardboard, wood and canvas.

homeschool coupon codes and sales_edited-1

We are gearing up to start school on Monday, and for us that means a mad dash to get all the curriculum in order (that would be when I realized I forgot to order two books!), getting a small batch of freezer meals prepped so I have some breathing room in the next few weeks, and savoring the last few days of the pool being open and friends being able to visit any time. Have you all started school yet? 

Here are a few reading links you may find interesting as well – they are links the kids and I have found interesting or helps for homeschool families. The main talk in our house has been the Olympics (the late nights are about to do us in though!). Now that swimming is over, the kids and I have also had some talks about a certain swimmer and the story that is unfolding regarding a not-so-true story he told. Great example of really poor choices – and will be interesting to see the consequences. 

There are some time-sensitive sales, giveaways, and goodies in this post, so if you are at all interested, I’d encourage you not to hold off! I’ll try to put them in order of when the deals expire to help you out. :)
