With the close of 2011, as well as the holiday season, we all look forward to a new year. I always get excited about teaching my son during the new year, and I feel rejuvenated and rested after the holiday break. If you held off on materials and books now is definitely a great time to make these purchases. Many of the books and materials I showcased for lesson plans and unit studies are half off-if not more! Upon noticing these awesome sales this morning, I felt an update was needed.
Many of the book club and author studies featured on the Homeschool page at BellaOnline have corresponding books at fantastic sale prices. For example, "The Lightning Theief", by Rick Riordan, is majorly reduced in price. The hardcover deluxe edition is at a price of $16.50, reduced from $25.00. This is the basis for the movie coming out early 2010 with Pierce Brosnan.
There is also a box set, paperback, for only $11.69. This is reduced from $20.00! Check out the books below for other sales I have found. There is also a sale on "Ramona" books by Beverly Cleary. As featured in my articles, these are classic books that are wholesome and fun to read. Plus, there is a Ramona movie set to come out in the Spring of 2010. The movie would be a nice idea to culminate an author study on Beverly Cleary.
A few American Girl items are also on sale, which is not always common. These will make great gifts to go along with unit studies on these classic dolls, or even an American Girls book club.
Have fun checking out the post holiday sales- and Happy New Year!
