A Few Independence Day Deals

Independence Day Deals

Every holiday seems to bring an inbox full of emails + sales.  It can be hard to sift through the duds sometimes so I wanted to share some of my favorites that are going on this week in honor of the Independence Day holiday. 

Analytical Grammar – Grammar Independence Sale

There are so many methods + approaches to teaching grammar, but I have found with my own children over the years that a one time mastery approach around the middle school years is the way to go.  We love using Analytical Grammar to help us achieve mastery once and for all!!

Now through July 4th, you can get 17.76% off ALL Analytical Grammar products + FREE media mail shipping by using the coupon code – 1776FREE.

AG Grammar Sale

Rocky Mountain Oils – Store Wide Sale + Free Gift with Purchase

I have shared a few other times about my love for Rocky Mountain Oils.  I am currently using the Tohi skin care line and I am pretty much in love with the cleanser.  It is so light and feels so great after a hot summer day at the pool.

They are having a great Independence Day Store Wide sale going on right now.  You can receive 10-25% off any purchase, as well as receive a FREE bottle of either the Tohi Sacred Skin Moisturizer (it would go great with that favorite cleanser of mine) or choose a bottle of Blue Tansy with any purchase over $200.  This sale ends Thursday, July 5th. 


Apologia – Save 35% off Textbooks

We love the conversational style science textbooks from Apologia.  They are on sale over at Christian Book right now.  Sale ends July 3rd. 


Usborne Books – New Customer Special


Usborne has a fun new customer special that is perfect for the Independence Day holiday this week.  The book title Americanly is normally $11.99, but you can get it for $6.00 with any $40 purchase.  This fun title goes all over the USA showing landmarks + it uses fun adverbs along this way.  We love this one!  You can find some fun resources to go along with this book title here

Happy July!!! {Homeschool Mom Life}

2018 - 07.01.2018 - Quick Van Chat   Happy July

Happy July Friends!!

I hope your week + month are off to a great start.

Just a quick van chat today sharing about our week + our summer school plans for this new month.

Details From Today’s Video…

  • The Collingsworth Family – We fell in love with this family during their concert last night.  It was an incredible night of worship.  Red heartRed heartRed heart


  • All About Spelling – Summer is the perfect time to focus in on weak areas or subjects that you just cannot get around to during the regular school year.  Our oldest 4 children will be using different levels of this program to strengthen their spelling skills this month.

All About Spelling

  • America the Beautiful – We are really enjoying this middle school American history program from Notgrass.  I love how it ties in scripture, literature, and creative writing along with history, landmarks, biographies, and geography.  That is a lot bang for not a lot of time!! It is also SUPER EASY for this homeschool mom to use and implement. 


So tell me…  What are your plans for this month?
