Great Homeschool Magazine

You may all remember that back in August I reviewed The Old Schoolhouse Magazine Digital Version. Well, I still love the Digital version but sometimes you do want a paper version of The Old Schoolhouse. But looking back I realized that I didn’t talk much about the actual magazine.

I like this magazine a lot. It is great to have this great resource. It offers advice in teach methods, life management and even product reviews. There are apple contest that reward readers. There is even a Natural Schoolhouse feature. Recently this feature was a sweet peace tying in eternal lessons with new lambs. It is also refreshing to see and hear from moms that are where I am but further along. So why am I mentioning all this now?

I wanted to tell you all about The Old Schoolhouse Magazine’s Fall Special. You can get two years of the magazine, 6 fabulous physical gifts (no downloads!) worth over $120, plus the current issue of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine that is full of ideas for the new school year, so you start receiving your magazine in a flash!

It really is one of their best deals ever and you don’t want to miss out. In fact, they’ve got a really cute Homeschooling with Heart tote bag (valued at $13.95) for the first 1000 to subscribe. About half of them are gone, but you should still be able to get one if you hurry!
(They will remove the info from the subscription page when the bags are all gone.) The total value is over $212, but you receive it all for only $39 – 50% off of cover price! Plus subscribers get their online monthly Teacher’s Toolbox which focuses on a different topic each month, giving you words of encouragement, hands-on teaching ideas, book recommendations, field trip ideas, and a bonus download item.

So go run get this great deal!

The Old Schoolhouse: Digital Version

I used to get the paper version of The Old Schoolhouse magazine. It would come and I could pour over it for a week or two. The most frustrating thing was figuring out what 1 person I would share an article with. But then budget cuts hit the NerdFamily and unfortunately magazines were sad victims. As budget regulated I realized that I didn’t have time to pour over a magazine between blogging and homeschooling. I have to say that I felt I was missing an enrichment that I was getting before. I don’t belong to an ISP and this was support group.

Well, with the arrival of the digital version all is right(and maybe even better) with my world. First of all it is like 30% cheaper than the paper version. Being a cheapskate and a mother of 4, that is always a good thing. I love that it is portable and searchable. Since I do everything on my laptop now, I love being able to just pop over and read an article when I have a couple of minutes. You can even download it so you can read a piece when you aren’t online.

Now I have a strange confession, I love the fact you can click a button and forward an article. So when you have that new homeschooling friend who needs to read that encouraging piece or that naysayer who needs a little “information” that is firmer than your word;), just email it.

The reader is really smooth. I have to say that I was braced for a pdf format so the nifty little reader was a breathe of fresh air. You can adjust your sizes to fit your screen or the font size you need, your choice! Another cool thing is about the links. Everything is already web enabled so there isn’t any more of the trying to remember to make a note of the web address and getting to it later.

Obviously I love it so go check it out!

A New Milk!

Recently Stemicks Heritage Foods came out with Little Einsteins milk that is rBST hormone-free and enriched with Omega-3 DHA and I wanted to share a link for a $1 off coupon. What makes this different is the Omega-3 DHA that is also found in baby formula. DHA is important in the development of the brain, especially from birth – 5 years of age when the brain increases approximately 3-1/2 times in mass. DHA is the primary fat in both the brain and retina, and ensures that cells in the brain retina, heart and other parts of the nervous system develop and function properly. Each eight ounce serving providing up to 32mg of DHA. Disney Little Einsteins milk is available as a 64-ounce package in low fat 1% and reduced fat 2%. So go, take the coupon and try it;).
