It's a Give-away!

Update: I am extending the deadline on this giveaway to Sept. 1, 2014 to allow time for more entries. You can also share on Pinterest to enter, so please, help spread the word. Thanks!

Hey Olive Planters!

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

Unit Studies

Virtual Field Trips!

Supplemental Materials

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!

To enter, visit Kathy's CurrClick store and tell me in comments to this post what item you would choose if you were the give-away winner.

You can earn 1 bonus entry each by sharing about this giveaway on facebook or twitter. Notify me here in comments or include #kathyhutto in your post/tweet so I can give you credit.

Earn three bonus entries by liking Olive Plants on facebook and/or following me on twitter, @Homeschooldawn.

Earn FIVE bonus entries by subscribing to Olive Plants.

You have until August 13th to enter. I will pick a winner using random.org. (I'm old school because I don't want to buy a rafflecopter subscription right now. ;-)

Happy last few days of summer!

Whoops! I have had this as an open tab on my computer for weeks, waiting to have a few moments to look over her products, but we've been traveling the whole time and it never got done. : ) If you want to try again for the give-away I can pin it (where I actually have a number of followers, as opposed to my blog or twitter!). Kathy does seem to be very talented!
