The Dynamic Homeschool Duo


Fight chaos on every front with your own Dynamic Duo! With a subscription to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine and its trusty sidekick The Schoolhouse Planner, you'll be equipped to tackle every enemy known to homeschoolers:

  • Disorder
  • Discouragement
  • Procrastination
  • Time shortage
  • Lack of motivation
  • Balancing home and school
  • Curriculum confusion
  • Menu planning
  • Household management
  • Scheduling chores
  • School boredom
  • Burnout
  • ____________ (fill in the blank)

The Old Schoolhouse Magazine is a quarterly 200 page magazine that will infuse your school with great resources and inspiration. This is the professional journal for homeschoolers with each issue brimming with tips for teachers, product reviews, articles by veteran homeschoolers in various disciplines, ideas for science studies, read alouds, phonics, writing helps and much, much more.

For a limited time, this incredible magazine is only $7.95 for a year subscription in the US (new subscribers as well as renewals). The normal subscription price is $25 dollars! And the digital version is only $6.95--at that price, you may want to take advantage of both. The print version to tear out and file articles for later reference or to loan to a friend and the digital version so you don't have to wait for the print one to come in the mail!

Read the digital version from a reader or using a reader app for your i-Touch. So when you are sitting at the doctor's office surrounded by outdated or immodest magazines, you can pull out the latest edition of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine and read away (hardly noticing your 30-45 minute wait...)!

This special subscription rate will begin with the 2010-2011 Winter issue. If you'd like to start off your school year by adding in the Fall issue as well, the price is $12.95. You may want to do some early Christmas shopping and purchase a gift subscription for homeschooling friends. It will help fend off their post-holiday blues and give them encouragement to finish the second half of the school year strong!

The other half of the Dynamic Duo is The Schoolhouse Planner. Basically, it's the planner to end all planners. With over 600 pages to guide your organization of home, family, kitchen, school and time, you will have at your fingertips the tools to not only plan but bring to fruition your goals. One feature I especially like is the variety of school planning schedules to choose from. Here's an example of the lesson planning form I printed off for my kids. I used different color paper for each child:

I chose to print off and fill in my information by hand but it is possible to type directly on the form and save and print that way as well.

The Schoolhouse Planner is not just a bundle of forms, it also provides articles written by respected speakers in the field of homeschooling to instruct and inspire you each month of the year. Read them all at once for a super dose of encouragement, or save to read each month as it comes. Either way, you'll have lots of tips to refer back to and implement as the need arises. With helps for the whole year and forms for every area on the home front, $39 for the planner is a great investment (that's about the equivalent to the cost of one foo-foo coffee each month)!

Normally this Duo would cost $64 but for a limited time you can get the pair for $46.95 (that's more than 25% off the pair). So for less than $50, you can be armed with the tools of your homeschooling profession (far less than the cost of the average professional journal alone!). Or if you are only interested in The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, order for $7.95 and enjoy a 68% savings on your subscription.

At The Old Schoolhouse Magazine home page, you can take an online peek at the summer issue. Then hop over here to see some sample pages of the planner. You won't believe what's included.

For ordering information, you can sign up for your Old Schoolhouse Magazine subscription here.
And the Schoolhouse Planner can be ordered through here. You may also want to browse some new combinations of the Schoolhouse Planner along with specialized planners for primary, middle or high school students.
The Old Schoolhouse Magazine and The Schoolhouse Planner can be purchased separately. But the deal on the 1 year subscription is only available through Wednesday, September 15 so hurry to take advantage of this offer. And remember you can add in the current issue for a total of $12.95.

Happy Homeschooling,
Jill
