Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals for You!

I'm a little amazed by all the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals going on out there, but what a great thing for those of us watching every penny at Christmastime. Here are some of our very favorites, with affiliate links for the companies we love!

First up is CurrClick's Doorbuster Deals because they'll be gone by 3 PM CST! You'll also see a preschool package from Preschoolers and Peace, so grab that one if you don't have any of our resources. It's a great deal!

We are big fans of CurrClick here, sharing regularly about the resources we love there, from copywork that costs just 10 cents to download to live classes that have saved me from having to teach pre-algebra. 

Dayspring has a terrific sale on their entire site! We love their art, jewelry, and gifts. My girls have some lovely Scripture art in their bedroom from Dayspring.

Coupon code: 30FRIDAY14. The coupon is good towards the entire store (includes clearance, excludes Markdown Specials) and is valid through 12/1. Grab that coupon and go!

Grapevine Studies

All Grapevine Studies Old Testament bundles Parts 1-4 are 33% off on Black Friday only, and their New Testament bundles Parts 1-4 are 33% off on Cyber Monday. Save 20% off the Birth of Jesus bundle until November 30th. These are tried-and-true for Circle Time in our home. 

Oh also - sign up for the Grapevine newsletter by November 30th and you could win a Kindle Fire!

We've been talking about Compass Classroom a lot over on HomeschoolingIRL both because they've been our podcast sponsor this month and also because we really like their new Word Up! The Vocab Show video series. 

Creators of Visual Latin, Compass Classroom is putting out some great materials for history, Latin, filmmaking, economics, poetry, philosophy, and Bible.

2014 Black Friday Sale BIP

Oh, you know we love Bright Ideas Press! We've used The Mystery of History for years - 12, to be exact! We also love the Christian Kids Explore science series, WonderMaps, and all the fun stuff that goes with The Mystery of History

Use code HOMESCHOOLINGINRL and get 20% off the eBook edition of Truth in the Tinsel, our favorite Advent resource for younger kids.

Art lessons on DVD have changed how art gets taught and created in our home. In fact, it's often the only way it does get done because I'm so not an artsy mom. This is why I adore See the Light curriculum. We reviewed the Tiffany Window project a little while ago, so take a look and see if it would be a good fit for your family, too. And don't forget to use that Black Friday code!

What great deals are you grabbing this weekend?

All the Coupons and Deals We Have For You!

Whistling over here . . . it's been quiet on Preschoolers and Peace, hasn't it? If you're on Facebook with us, though, the chatter never stops! Come hang out with us, and in the meantime, here are the deals and goodies we have to pass on for November. Lots of affiliate links, which help us pay to keep writing and running the site. Thanks :)

First of all, some great ideas for Circle Time and advent celebrations:

Use coupon code BIRTHDAY now through November 10th to get 25% off any of the SQUILT music appreciation units.

*Code corrected* Use coupon code HOMESCHOOLINGINRL now through December 25th to get 20% off all Truth in the Tinsel books and ornaments. The printable ornaments are the best! (Unless you're a crafty mom and then I say, you go Mom!)

Simple Christmas Art Lessons

So, I (Kendra) am so NOT an artsy mom. Understatement. But I do really love Tricia from Southern Hodgepodge's chalk pastel series. Sometimes one of my older kids will work on a project with the younger ones and sometimes I get brave enough to try. We all end up making very nice works of art!

American Landmarks Art Curriculum For All Ages

The new American Landmarks study includes tutorials for drawing such icons as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone Falls, the Lincoln Memorial, and more. Hop over there for a FREE Golden Gate Bridge tutorial video!

Birth of Jesus

20% off the Grapevine Studies Birth of Jesus books now through December 15th. We reviewed Grapevine Studies here and think they're great with a variety of ages. 

Life of Fred math books are a great approach to math in an entirely unconventional way. My daughter used to read hers before bed every night! Whatever floats your boat ;) Educents has them on sale for ONE DAY ONLY. Grab them fast!

Lastly, The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas is on sale, too. Michele and I both have several chapters featured, and I'm telling you, this is one great resource. I am very proud to have been a part of this project. The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas would be a great gift for a homeschooling friend.
