Daily Lesson Plans – Give-away and Free Shipping!

  |   Curriculum, Teaching Elementary School, Teaching History, Teaching Middle School   |   No comment

Editor’s Note: I’m sorry this give-away has expired.

So Much News!

First of all, you know how you hate to order a CD and pay a small fortune for shipping?  Well, we do, too.

And that is why we are now offering FREE SHIPPING on all of our curriculum CDs!  Yep! (To United States’ destinations.)

Free Shipping AND Give-away

This give-away is ‘in honor’ of the completion of our Second Grade Daily Lesson Plans – (which actually happened a while back, but  if you read my last newsletter you understand what happened to delay this announcement).

Next Wednesday, March 21st, we will randomly select ONE WINNER TO RECEIVE A YEAR OF our Christian, literature-based DAILY LESSON PLANS ON CD!!  Worth $200, this is all the homeschooling curricula you need to teach history, science, language arts and fine arts – for one entire school year for one of your students!

In addition to our Teacher’s Guide that instructs how the plans are to be used, you will receive:

  • Set I (Ancients, Middle Ages and Renaissance & Reformation) AND
  • Set II (Colonial Life, Revolution and Western Expansion), AND
  • Set III (Civil War, Immigration and Modern)

You choose the grade level!  Currently available: First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, Fourth Grade, or Middle School (best for 7th or 8th graders).

All you will need to get to go with the lesson plans are the books we use and the supplies for projects and activities. The books are available at your local library, used bookstore or on Amazon.com! (See our book pages to see which books we suggest for each grade level. You may even have some of them already.)

You have several chances to enter! Do one or more of the following:

  1. Tweet this offer. (You may use the button below this post on our blog.) Make sure you leave another comment with your twitter name letting us know about it.
  2. Read and comment on one of our last three blog posts  before this one and comment on this post to let us know.
  3. Leave a comment on this post and tell us why you would like to win!
  4. Post this offer on your Facebook page and comment to let us know. (Below this post on our blog .)
  5. Post this offer on your Google+ page and comment to let us know.
  6. If you haven’t already, go to our home page and join our mailing list. Then leave a comment on our blog and tell us you did!

If You Don’t Win, Don’t Worry

Of course, we can only have one winner – but for everyone else, after our random drawing we are going to be offering VERY special pricing on all of our Daily Lesson Plan CDs for one week only.  Along with the free shipping – this will be a fabulous offer!

If you have been looking longingly at our daily lesson plans, this will be your chance to take care of all of your history, science, language arts and fine arts curriculum for one of your students for next year, at a price you can afford!

Look for the details of this sale when we announce the winner of our Daily Lesson Plan Give-away.

Christian literature based homeschool curriclum

 

 

P.S. Don’t forget – our free shipping on Daily Lesson Plans CDs will be in effect as well as the very reduced prices for one week AFTER our give-away!

    I’m not sure if I missed the deadline or not, but here goes. I always have the best of intentions, but I seem to get sidetracked more than not. My biggest hangup is not planning realistically in the first place. I’m hoping that something like a lesson planner would ease the pressure of what to do next so that I could focus more on the relationship and joy of learning along side my daughter.

  • Sherry Osborne | Mar 22, 2012 at 2:59 am

    The lesson plans are one thing I am missing. I would love to get a copy. I’ll post this on Twitter as well. @HSSNetwork

    I read the article that education is a discipline. I am so scattered. I feel like I have ruined my daughters education. But by His grace I have not. But it
    is always encouraging to keep trying. It is also encouraging to read great articles. I would love to win this give away because I love charlotte mason homeschooling. Have always loved it. But I am not a good planner, I am a good follower. Thank you for all you do for us out here.

    I hope all the lesson plans are being offered on CD. My son will be entering 7th grade next year and he is so excited about the layout of this program. I gave him several options and he said this one looked like it would be fun and very interesting. We LOVE the High School Literature programs. The writing assignments are great for my daughter. She really gets a lot out of them. We’ll be doing American Lit next year for 12th grade (a bit out of order, but it works for us). The program has allowed us to continue using a challenging curriculum in a Charlotte Mason attitude…I love it.

    Thank you for all you are doing.

  • Tracey M. | Mar 15, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    I would love to win the second grade lesson plans! My daughter and I are currently using the first grade lesson plans and we are enjoying it tremendously. I wasn’t sure how I would teach history and if I would enjoy teaching it since it was never my favorite subject. Epi Kardia has made it easy and fun for us both while exposing us to a variety of historical time periods instead of focusing on just one unit. We are learning so much! I would love to use parts of the second grade lessons now as extensions for particular units based on my daughter’s interests. I would also like to continue using the curriculum so winning the 2nd grade lessons help financially. I am very interested in how the historical units will be extended each year and hope to “see the big picture.” I love the fact that the lesson planning is already done – this saves me so much time! It is well organized and easy to follow.
    God bless,
    Tracey

    • Dana | Mar 19, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    This is my first year using Epikardia and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I understand history in a way that I never have before. It has taken so much pressure off of the teaching because I am getting it! The lesson plans are too costly for our budget, we use the overview, so winning a full year of lesson plans would be fantastic! Thank you for this Christ-centered option to teaching our precious children.

    • Dana | Mar 14, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    I shared on Facebook. Although I’ve made my own lesson plans for this year, I have a baby coming soon, we just did a military move and won’t have any of our supplies for a while which throws us off, my husband might have fibromyalgia (we’re looking for a diagnosis), and we’re not sure what the next 6 months will hold, let alone the next year. So having it all laid out for me would be a real blessing.

    • Dana | Mar 14, 2012 at 4:07 pm

      Tanya, it sounds as if you have a TON going on this next year! I can see that the structure of already-made daily plans would be a huge help to you. Thanks for commenting.

  • Kodi | Mar 14, 2012 at 12:20 am

    I would love to win this! I have been struggling with lessons this year and decided I needed more structure, especially since I will be adding my middle child soon. My husband has changed jobs that included a paycut and I am on an even tighter budget then before! This would be huge blessing for our family in our desire to supply our children with a Charlotte Mason education!

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?

 

You don’t have to tie them to their chairs to get their school work done.

Instead, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and and dangerous escapes.

Immerse your children in the sights and sounds of history through reading excellent books. Bring history, science and fine arts to life by reading our best-of-the-best book suggestions. (A traditional textbook just isn’t going to do this for your kids.)

Like doing things your way?

Put together your own curriculum (history, language arts, science and fine arts) using our chronological history unit study framework with hundreds of pre-read, best-of-the-best book suggestions and assignment ideas (Unit Program Tools).    

 OR…

Take a deep breath and stop worrying about not covering enough with our open and go Daily Lesson Plans covering history, language arts, science (K-8th) and fine arts.

All done for you and ready to go.

 

Teaching High Schoolers? Study history and literature by making a model, illustrating a scene from a book, or planning and putting on a Renaissance feast!

(We write essays, too, but not all the time).

Customizable to fit YOUR kids.
