Freebie Friday 3-21-08 – Sylvan Dell

Welcome to Freebie Fridays!

I have some great freebies this week brought to you from one of the new vendors in the Schoolhouse Store.  Sylvan Dell Publishing has recently added over 50 new children’s books to the store.   These are colorful, fun, educational picture books designed to excite children’s imaginations.  They are artistically spectacular and have great educational value. The books start with fun, warm stories-generally fiction with science, math or nature themes-and are brought to life by art.  Along with the books they also offer a bunch of great freebies.

The first freebie they offer is a MP3 version of their books you can listen to absolutely free!  Once you have listened to the book online there are teaching activities to go along with the stories. If that isn’t enough they also have crafts to go along with the stories, learning links and comprehension quizzes.

Also make sure to check out the Creative Minds section to find activities and educational information which relate to and reinforce the primary subjects of each title.  They even offer some of these studies in Spanish! There are so many great items on this website you can put together a whole study on a multitude of topics, all for free!

Here is one last fun thing from Sylvan Dell.  Right now they are holding the 2008 Picture Book Writing Competition for Homeschooled Students.  Your students manuscripts must be submitted by March 31st.  You have 10 days before the deadline!  You can read all about it HERE.  

By the way, today is the last day of the March Madness Sale at the Schoolhouse Store.  You will find items on sale for up to 80% off!  Make sure to stop by and take a look.

We have another great contest happening over at the Company Porch. Make sure to stop by and enter the latest contest.  They are giving away a free set of My-Word-Magnets from Kidtronic.  These look like a lot of fun!

Lastly, Sunday is Easter.  I hope that each of you will spend time reflecting on the gift we received through the resurrection of Jesus!  If you want to read all about why Easter falls so early this year make sure to stop by the Classical Astronomy website to learn all about it!

I’ll see you next week right here at – Freebie Fridays!
