This is for those of you who homeschool, who have a pile of curriculum ready to sell or still need something. (If you don't know, I teach my children at home. Since I belong to different homeschool networks and most of my readers came from word of mouth, I know I have a lot of homeschool readers.)
More information can be found at this link. Basically, if you want to sell . . . get moving and follow the directions! (Sorry for the late notice.)
If you want to buy, show up on Saturday, August 25th between 8 am and noon. The address is: 624 W. Aviary Way, Gilbert, AZ 85233 (See link for details on buying or selling.)
Off topic, but I just have to share this . . .
I highly recommend a book called Vocabulary Cartoons. I've read reviews from public school teachers who say their kids ask to do vocabulary everyday. My kids are loving it, but we've only been doing it for a couple weeks. The list price is $12.95, but it's only $8.45 on Amazon.
My kids are between 9 and 12 years old and we do it together. I talk about the word and show them the cartoon then they make a flashcard to practice the spelling and definition. Really, there is little practice needed for the definition. The words stick!! It's actually an SAT vocabulary prep book, but they're enjoying it at this early age. I figure if we do one a day now, they won't be cramming for SATs later! :)
Their favorite so far is the word "abut" which means "to border upon; to adjoin." They have a cartoon of several people sitting on a bench, with a rear (butt!) view, smashed together, one falling off. The key phrase is "abutting butts."
I learned one new word so far. It's "abstruse" and means "hard to understand." The cartoon has two moose friends, scratching their heads, watching their strange moose friend reading a book and soaking his feet. The sentence they give you is, "His friends consider Mike, the moose, to be very abstruse." Seriously . . . I don't think I'll ever forget what it means.
I saw they have a lower level book. (3rd – 6th, but the words will still be a challenge.) I just ordered it today since I didn't know it existed before. I think we'll back up and do that one, once it arrives. There is also a third one for SATs that is called Vocabulary Cartoons II.
(Disclosure: I do receive a small commission for Amazon purchases you make through my link, but that was not my motivation for sharing this with you. Get it wherever you want! You will love it, even if you don't homeschool!)
(Thanks for the sale information, Andrea!)
