Cerebellum Corporation: 25% Off All Videos (Educational)

Cerebellum Corporation is having a Winter Sale of 25% Off ALL of their educational videos.  They sell DVDs from Just the Facts, Light Speed, and The Standard Deviants.  They have other  educational products too (such as Rocket Books and African American literature from Dunbar). The sale ends January 31, 2010.  They are also offering FREE Shipping on orders over $50.

FYI:  We have used a couple of different DVDs from Standard Deviants and have found them to be comprehensive and engaging. They are certainly not the “view it in an hour” kind of educational DVDs.  They are packed full with information that is broken down into topics. We find that tackling one or two topics at a sitting is sufficient for a day’s lesson.

Have you tried any of their products?  If so, let us know what you thought of them!

Update from Homeschool Freebie of the Day

Earlier, I posted the FREEBIE resources for Monday through Thursday of this week.  I had to leave out Friday because it was a surprise. Well, the Friday surprise didn’t work out as planned (It’s actually a GREAT thing for them!) and so they have released a regular FREEBIE for Friday.  They’ve also made a special announcement about changes to the Friday format.  Below is a cut & paste from the email with all the necessary details.

Friday, Jan 8th:
WHAT SHALL WE DO NOW?
Five Hundred Games & Pastimes (PDF ebook)

A wonderful volume of delightful activities, projects, and
things to do compiled by Dorothy Canfield back in 1907,
especially for any child who’s felt bored and wondered
what to do next. In this book, you’ll discover the things
your great grandparents did for fun back when they were kids.
It is just great.

Some of our favorite sections are the sections on building
your own dollhouse furniture, things to make indoors & out,
writing & drawing games, how to enjoy the countryside,
rainy day games, and lots more.

This is a huge book, chock full of fascinating, fun stuff.
We suggest you keep a copy on your computer and refer to
it from time to time whenever your tribe is bored and wondering
“what shall WE do now?”

You can pick up your copy of this resource tomorrow at

This Week @ Homeschool Freebie of the Day

Homeschool Freebie of the Day, one of my favorite sources for free downloads, is back after taking a holiday break.  Their Heads Up email has hit my inbox, so here’s a cut & paste of what’s in store this week:

Monday, January 4th:
Supermom’s Simple Guide to Healthier Eating for Beginners and Beyond (PDF ebook)

“I know I should be eating healthier, but I don’t know where to begin!”
“A healthier diet would be nice, but my husband and kids will never go for it.”
“Healthy food doesn’t taste good.” Have you ever had any of these thoughts?
Many people do! Incorporating healthful habits is important for all of us,
but it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what to do, how to do it,
all the while wondering whether or not we’re going to like the taste.

In her long-anticipated first book, “Supermom” Erica Johns shares her
philosophy of taking realistic baby steps toward your healthy eating goals,
rather than burning yourself out on extreme health plans. A homeschooling
mother of six, she understands the unique challenges of time management
and healthy living on a modest budget.  A must for homeschool moms that
want to start out the new year with a practical plan for health and
weight loss that works!

Blog Recommendation: Daily Essentials and Deals

Megan, author of Daily Essentials and Deals, has a family friendly blog site with (in Megan’s words) a three-fold  purpose:  “First to help me get my daily dose of the Bible (and be accountable), second to focus on family, and of course to talk about THE COUPON DEALS!”  I subscribed to Megan’s blog several weeks ago and have found her coupon links very helpful.  I also enjoy her posts and pictures.  If interested, you can subscribe to her blog.  Or, just drop in and visit her site once in a while.  I recommend subscribing because, as does mine, her blog has some time-sensitive offers.

Also, as a fun bonus, she sponsors giveaways.  The current giveaway is a bottle of lotion from Skin MD, which the company provided to Megan for the giveaway.  Click here to see the details and then leave a comment for an entry in the giveaway.  The giveaway is open to everyone!  :o)
