Are you ready for school to start?
I am! I am!
I have really enjoyed summer break. I have spent a lot of time at the pool, even more time lesson planning, and even fought off some bats! Soon, however, the Olive Plants Home Academy will be in full swing. I will share our 2014-15 curriculum plans in days to come but wanted to take a minute to share a great resource with you today! (AND A GIVE-AWAY!)
It is my honor to spotlight a very talented curriculum and e-book author, Kathy Hutto. She is a personal friend of mine-- a sweet, God-honoring lady with two of the nicest kids you could ever meet (one of them is a student at the co-op I lead). She also just happens to have amazing teaching ideas oozing from her pores.
Here is just a sampling of the many wonderful items available at her CurrClick store.
|An Excellent Homeschool Planner|
|Virtual Field Trips!|
|Resources for Special Needs Students|
|...and even a book |
on writing and publishing ebooks!
Kathy also offers memory aids, posters, lapbooks, spelling sheets, and (my personal fave) silly sentences. She is such a gifted and experienced teacher who has taken great care to publish affordable materials for use at home or in a formal school setting. Most of her items cost between 50 cents and $5!
She has also graciously offered to give away
one of her fabulous products (up to $25)
to an Olive Plants reader!
