Are you new to homeschooling? Do you have friends that are just starting out? We are excited to be offering a “class” on the how-to’s of homeschooling. This is really going to be helpful step-by-step information for the beginning homeschool family.

And to top it off, we have some top-notch companies that are working with us that want to give portions of their curriculum to our class attendees. We are receiving hundreds of dollars in curriculum to give away to each and every class participant. Yay!

This is really going to be a wonderful opportunity for those just starting out in this homeschooling adventure or perhaps have a year or less under their belt. Pass the word around to your friends and neighbors. This is a class that any new homeschool parent will not want to miss. Class starts around August 1st!

Stay posted right here as details are to follow!

You all are amazing! And so fast too! Now, let me just clarify that I did not tell any of you WHAT to write in your reviews, but I am tickled pink by what you DID write! I am steadily adding names to my hat and cannot wait for the drawing on August 8th. I appreciate each one of you so much that I am already thinking about what else I can give that will bless all of you, above and beyond the 3 big winners. I’ll be chewing on that for a little bit…

IF you are wondering what I am talking about, just scroll down to the previous post. We are holding a drawing for an iPod Nano and 2 $150 gift certificates. Find out how your name can be added to our virtual hat!

By the way, it appears that CBD reviews are not posted immediately, so keep that in mind. Your name is entered into the drawing whenever you let me know that your review has been written. And I am entering your name whether you comment here on the blog or send me an email. Either way of communication is fine with me. And several of you are getting your names entered multiple times. Fantastic!

God bless you all,
Terri

We are holding a drawing for an iPod Nano and 2 Knowledge Quest gift certificates valued at $150 and you could be one of the winners. Let me tell you how you can have your name entered into our drawing.

Many people who purchase Knowledge Quest products let their friends know about them and often even post a review about them on their blogs. There are many of these reviews all over the internet. However, the pages for our books that are listed on Amazon.com and CBD.com are sadly lacking reviews. There are a small handful of reviews posted there and I am thankful to those readers who have taken the time to post their review, BUT it would be really great if there were more.

This is what I am proposing to do. I would love to give away an iPod Nano and 2 Knowledge Quest gift certificates for $150 to 3 individuals whose names are going to be drawn “out of a hat” so to speak. And to get your name in the hat, all you have to do is post a review of one or more of our books that you have previously purchased and then comment here with a link to your review. That’s it. I can’t tell you what to write in your review, but I do ask that it be honest and that it be for a book that you have taken the time to read or look through carefully. Please do not post a review about a book that you haven’t read or have only glanced at on a book store shelf.

That’s it. Post those reviews and then leave your comments here. Don’t forget to include the link to your review. And you can review more than one book if you wish. Your name will be entered for EACH review that you post.

Post your reviews by July 31st and we’ll hold the drawing on Friday, August 8th. Here are the links to our books on Amazon and CBD:

I received my new school planner this week from The Old Schoolhouse. It is called the The Schoolhouse Planner (not too surprising!) and it is loaded with helpful planning information. It is digital and interactive. I can type in my own personal information and then print it myself. Great idea, isn’t it? Here is some of what is included in the planner and why I am so excited about it:

Calendars in various forms yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily
Lists of holidays and places to record special days in your family
Planners for your homeschool in various styles to meet your individual needs
Pages for both long-term and short-term homeschooling goals
Curriculum planning forms
Evaluation forms and test score recording sheets
A through-the-Bible in a (school) year schedule
Forms for recording Bible memory and other memory work
Logs for recording books read, movies and documentaries viewed, etc.
A field trip planning form and recording log
A sample science lab sheet and nature study sheets
A place to record extracurricular activities
Outside classes, co-op, and support group information and recording sheets
Household planning forms
Daily, weekly, and monthly household schedule charts
Grocery, menu-planning, and food logs
Various budget and financial planning forms
Garden planning sheets
An appliance and electronics inventory sheet
Vacation planning ideas
Address and telephone records


There are also…
12 homeschool must-know items, one for each month of the year
12 essays from curriculum authors in the homeschool community
24 easy main-dish recipes from some top homeschoolers around the nation

2-page monthly calendar with BIG blocks with lots of room for writing in details each day

I feel fortunate enough to be one of the 12 authors that contributed to this planner, but that is certainly not why I like it. It is because it is so very usable! I will print extra pages of the ones that I will use the most and not print the pages that I won’t use at all (not too many of those!).

You can check it out here. I think that you will like it as much as I do.

Well, I am setting up my third blog in hopes that I might actually keep it going this time. I would like to communicate timely Knowledge Quest news and share a little bit about the personalities and goings-on behind the scenes. We would like for you to know us a little more than a website can convey and a newsletter has room to share.

Please use this forum to communicate with us and share your great ideas.

God bless,
Terri Johnson
