Getting Ready to Head for the Holidays!

This week begins our Heading for the Holidays week, and we are planning quite a celebration! We are having two special events that you won't want to miss, and some great sale prices on some of our favorite holiday titles! The two special events this week are:

Heading for the Holidays
Twitter Party on Wednesday, October 26th, 1 - 2 p.m. (EDT)! We'll be talking about homeschooling through the holidays, making memories, and learning lasting lessons of love. We will be offering plenty of goodies and some amazing prizes!

Second, we are excited to announce a fun and encouraging Internet radio broadcast, and you are NOT going to want to miss this! Mark your calendar for Thursday, October 27th, 4 - 5 p.m. (EDT), and then listen at Living Inspired With Tricia Goyer. The last time these two were on the radio together, there was an abundance of laughter, tons of heartfelt sharing, and loads of encouragement from two of homeschooling's more experienced veterans.

This Thursday, they will once again be sharing and encouraging! They are going to be talking about plenty of things, like the importance of our veterans--remembering them, and honoring their service. With Amanda's Veteran's Day unit study and Tricia's exciting new WWII novel, Remembering You, they have stories to share and ideas to help you as we approach Veteran's Day on November 11th. 


In just one week, we will be launching our first-ever Heading for the Holidays month-long Thanksgiving cooperative on the USAB Facebook page. Make plans now to join us as we share our path along the Thanksgiving unit study. R.S.V.P. for the event now. We will be reviewing books, posting recipes, gift ideas, learning links, and much more throughout the days of our Heading for the Holidays experience.

Use coupon code FBThanks3 to save $3 off the purchase price of the Thanksgiving study through 10/31/11.

Bring your own ideas, recipes, suggestions, and questions. This is going to be a time of fellowship, sharing, learning, and gratitude. We are looking forward to having you join us as we count our blessings and prepare our hearts and home for Thanksgiving.

To help you capture all these fabulous memories you are going to be making - we have two very special units on sale at a very special price this week:

Digital Photography Unit Study Adventure  (K-12) - $5

From Aristotle to Ansel Adams, people have studied light and photography for many years. From the first simple photographs to those coming back from outer space and the inside of a man, photography has opened up our world and beyond. Use this four-week unit study to teach your children how a digital camera works. Learn about the basic elements of composition and other important aspects of taking a good picture. From backyard scavenger hunts to photo journals of a typical day in your life, this academic adventure is both fun and fascinating!

Scrapbooking Unit Study Adventure (K-12) - $5

Did you know that Thomas Jefferson and Mark Twain were avid scrapbookers? Did you know that girls included hair weavings in their scrapbooks in the 1800s? I was amazed to find out that Mark Twain probably made more money from a scrapbooking invention than he did from royalties on his books!

In addition to assembling family scrapbooks, your students can use the ideas in this study to create wonderful memory albums for each unit study they do. Perfect for reminding students of all they’ve learned!
