Monkee Books

The proprietor for a website for buying and selling homeschool curriculum recently shared their up-and-coming website with us. It’s called Monkee Books. It’s like E-bay or Etsy for homeschool curriculum. So if you have a curriculum need or you need to sell some of you own curriculum, go check it out!

When poking around on their website a little, I also noticed that the owners are local! So it would be great for us to support them and help them build their business…all while we are getting good deals on our own curriculum or selling our old curriculum to make space on our over-stuffed book shelves!

Online Courses for Home School

Jennifer Tharp, of My Online High School, submitted the following information for a complete online homeschool experience.

Good afternoon!

I would like to share a great program with you that is perfect for homeschool students as well as co-op groups. Whether you work with your children in your home or in a group setting our courses are a great addition to what you’re currently doing.
I’ve attached a benefit sheet for additional details. Your child will be able to experience and learn the discipline needed to be successful in the next level of education in a supported environment.
If you’re running into a course that you’re not completely comfortable with or your student would benefit from being accountable to an outside instructor we’ll be a great fit!
Our courses can be taught by you or one of our highly trained instructors.
Please email me to request a detailed course listing for your review. We are always adding more courses….like our trade certification courses in Electrical, HVACR & Plumbing. Learning one of these skills means a job for life!
Feel free to email any questions you might have or for additional information. Our website for non-traditional learners is currently under construction.If anyone would like to see a demo, I can also provide the log in information for that. I look forward to hearing from you! Have a fabulous day!

New Personal Finance Curriculum for Homeschooling

Information submitted to prescotthshub@gmail.com:

money128

Homeschooling Families:

My name is Jane Slotnick, and this will be my fifth year to teach personal finance at Oklahoma Christian School in Edmond.  During my years, I have developed my own curriculum for my students.  My husband, a programming whiz, decided he wanted to create an interactive web-based program that would allow kids to learn about many aspects of financial literacy in a real-life simulation.  Everything from banking to taxes is included.

The name of the course is Personal Finance for Teens.  URL is www.perfinforteens.com.  When you select the Demo Site tab, you’ll be able to see both a teacher and student account.  As a homeschool parent, you would be the teacher with as many students as necessary connected to your account.  Several homeschooling families at my church have used the program and loved it.  Learning has skyrocketed for both those families and the students I teach at OCS.

Please take a look at the program and share with the other families in your group.  It is a great option for teaching this valuable life skill.    If you have any questions, I would be happy to help you any time.

Thank you so much,

Jane Slotnick

This does look like a great resource for homeschoolers. Since my kids aren’t old enough to start the program, I will pin it to a Pinterest board for future reference. So if your kids aren’t old enough either but it looks like a good curriculum, bookmark it, Pin it, save it somehow so you don’t forget about it! (FYI–I am not endorsing it, nor reviewing it, nor being compensated in any way to share the info here. Just like many other resources on this page, the owner emailed me asking me to share the information with others, and I am gladly obliging!)

Classical Conversations

Hi there!

If you or anyone you know of that would be interested – we are having another CC info meeting day on Wed., January 28th.
We will be meeting at 12pm –  bring your own lunch and have the kids play while the moms (parents) meet for a CC info meeting.

Later that day we will have another meeting at 6pm – 8pm at one of the local libraries.

If you would like to attend please contact me and I will give you the meeting address.

We are currently in negotiations with a local church in Prescott near the Senator Hwy to see if we can use their campus as our regular meeting place.  We would love to have you join us as we will hopefully be meeting once a week at this new location.

Sincerely,

Maggie Jones
Director, Prescott Valley Classical Conversations
