Thinking back, what was your favorite December activity? What gift did you or your children enjoy the most?
Here’s my attempt to catch up, in pictures:
Better World Books is taking 25% off all of their used books when you buy 5 or more. The code is BLACKFRIDAY. There is a bit of a learning curve with their site so listen up. The discount is only good on books sold and shipped by the company themselves – NOT on anything sold by “Other Sellers”. Some items have a little “SALE” tag by them – that means they qualify for Bargain Bin pricing and do NOT qualify for this sale. Do not put any Bargain Bin books in your cart or the discount code will not work, even if you have 5 other books that do qualify. I ended up placing two orders: one with Bargain Bin books and one with discount code books. Shipping is free so it wasn’t a problem once I figured it out. I picked up several books here that we need for doing Sonlight preschool next year. The cheapest used books on Amazon are usually $4.00 ($3.99 shipping + $0.01 price) so being able to order some for $3 was a rare treat. This is the one that ends at 9 AM.
Laura at Heavenly Homemakers is offering 30% off of her digital products with code PINKFRIDAY30. This includes her Learn Your Letters, Learn To Serve preschool curriculum! It’s similar to other letter of the week programs but emphasizes serving those around us for the glory of God. I’m planning to use this one as a part of our school time next year.
Here’s an affordable version of a classic Montessori work – made even more affordable with a deep discount! Jo-Ann’s has a pack of three Learn to Fasten “frames” and a Learn to Lace set. Each three piece set is only $12.99 AND there is a code at the top of the page for free shipping with no minimum purchase. My Mom and I already made are own set or I would definitely be snatching these up.
All products are 25% off any purchase of $25 or more PLUS free US shipping. Check ebay first though!
Enjoy, and let me know what else I’m missing!
Hey blogger friends… can I get your thoughts?
I’ve been tossing around the idea of upgrading my blog to it’s own domain and trying to monetize it a little bit. Sort of a “go big or go home” type thing. If I did it I think I’d be more motivated to write regularly and try to build an audience. I don’t really know how to go about it, or if it’s worth the bother. I’ve looked at a few ebooks about blogging but haven’t purchased any yet. I used to have a small, regular following and I miss really writing.
What do you think? Is it worth it for you? Any advice on where to start?
Kent was 26 months old.
Week 2 of Bible Basics for Two Year Olds was all about how God Made Plants.
Special Theme Activity
We watched the seeds gradually grow and sprout and talked a lot about how God made the seeds and gave us the sun the help them grow in to food for us.
I didn’t get a picture but we did get some plant related books from the library. Our favorite was “Tops and Bottoms”. From our own collection we read “A Tiny Seed” and “The Little Red Hen”. That last one is a long-time favorite of his anyway
I tried to encourage him to collect some natural materials from outside so we could make a collage but he wasn’t interested. I’d suggest he pocket an acorn and he would shout, “No!” with a very offended look on his face and toss it back to the ground. Apparently, acorns belong outside. Silly mama. 😉
What’s your favorite way to play with or learn about plants?
