Homeschoolers ~ FREE for the Summer, Yes FREE!

I am so excited to share these special FREE offers with you and with ME!  Yes, I am thrilled about some of these and will be using these discounts right alongside of many of you! When given the opportunity to peek at these deals in advance to prepare to share with you, I quickly noticed a couple that really intrigued me.

First, I had never heard of myON Literacy Program and after looking around I am so excited!  I have a little bookworm and this looks amazing for her!!

eMedia Music Academy is another one we will definitely be spending time looking at during this free summer trial.  Our oldest plays guitar and is interested in music, so this just might be a great fit!

Picture Smart Bible ~ DEAL!!

This sale is now OVER.

I haven’t shared much about the Build Your Bundle sale that ends soon, mostly because I didn’t contribute anything to it this year.  Also, I just haven’t had time to really look at it to see what was included.  While at Teach Them Diligently  this past weekend, I was talking with my friend Jolanthe about the bundle sale.  She mentioned what an incredible deal the bundles with Picture Smart Bible were and I was shocked.  We love Picture Smart Bible and I couldn’t believe it was included.

Sale info has been removed since the sale is over.

Homeschool Lesson Planning Made Simple

We were given a subscription to Lessontrek for review last year and I never stopped using it!  When we were first given access, I liked it, mostly because of the color coding…that is right up my alley!  As we moved along I got more comfortable with the features and then I really liked it.  Now, after using it this entire school year, I can’t imagine not using it next year!  It really is such a great fit for us!

Homeschool Lesson Planning with Lessontrek

I use and love Lessontrek for our homeschool lesson planning and think many of you will love it too!  I have an awesome discount for you and even an extended FREE trial period so all of you can give it a shot and see if it’s a good fit for you! Lessontrek stayed on after our initial review as a blog sponsor and I work with Jason {the developer} to share Lessontrek with my readers! We truly hope this discount and the extended free trial offer help you out!

Lessontrek Online Homeschool Planner Review

New Features…

Since our original review, Lessontrek has added new features!  I am super excited they now have a transcript feature in plenty of time for me to use with my kids!  There’s also a new gradebook feature.  I haven’t tested these out personally but will be using them in the future.  Here’s a screenshot from the transcript creating page, so you can see how simple it is!  You enter in the info and it pops out a beautiful transcript for your homeschooled student!
