Excellent (and inexpensive) Homeschool Science Online Courses!

CurrClick

I have found such an awesome resource for homeschooling! Since I am not very interested in teaching science, I am always looking for new and exciting (and easy) ways to teach science effectively and interestingly to my children. Well, I found another great resource!

Science Jim is just too cool! Right now he is offering (here) a Physics of Flight 4 week class for ages 8 and up via a live webcast on his website (links above). It's only $16 to bundle them OR you can choose which class(es) you want to take. I was really impressed by the video clips AND with what I've seen from him of Currclick! My children are so excited to be signed up for the Physics of Flight classes and are itching to watch the rest of the his Currclick bundle that I bought for $35!

When you go to Currclick, search for "Science Jim" and I really like this guy and the kids are so excited about science. Mommy is even more excited because someone else is doing the teaching and helping to conduct the experiments!! Woo-hoo! Not bad!

On another note....I would greatly appreciate it if you searched and bought any items from Currclick through this link, as I make a little off of your purchase (should you decide to do so). Check out their affiliate program at Currclick if you have a blog, as well, as every little bit helps to cut that budget! ;)

Enjoy!

Sounds awesome, Lisa! i have looked at Currclick items but have yet to actually purchase any so it is nice to know that you like them.

If I decide to get something else, will you get credit if I go through this link or is it item specific?

Thanks, Karen! Yes, I'll always get credit no matter what you order, if you just start by clicking that link or the one on my lefthand sidebar! They have some really cool stuff. My wishlist is so big...but I have to tone it down, if you know what I mean or else I'll go on curriculum overload! LOL!

Hi the Metzgers,

How are you?

Thanks so much for your wonderful ministry. God has blessed you with a wonderful family and I’m sure lots of families are blessed by it!

As large families are not the norm today in North America or other big cities, we large families really need encouragements, support and tips to go on. Many of us are convicted that it is God’s will to raise and homeschool a large family to glorify Him, however, during the journey, we are frustrated at times and ask, “does this really work?” as many of us are without experience. In light of this came the idea of this book.

I would be very much appreciated if you can submit an article sharing your experience and God’s grace during your journey. Guidelines are in the link below. It can be a blog you published before or a new piece that you specifically write for this book. I am very positive that many families will be grateful for your sharing.

All of your family members are invited as well!

Please seriously pray about it! =)

May God continue to bless your family abundantly!

Kay

P.S. It would be wonderful if you can also help spreading the word. Thank You =)

Calling for Submission!!
