April Showers Occurring All Month at SchoolhouseTeachers.com - April 10, 2019
Gena Suarez is a homeschooling mom and publisher of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine with her husband, Paul. “By this point in the school year, moms are thinking about changes they’d like to make next year,” explains Gena, “but they don’t need to wait until September to make changes. Moms and dads who love their curriculum become better teachers, and that’s why spring is an ideal time for parents to start using new resources. They can finish this semester strong and hit the ground running in the fall.”
To encourage spring renewal and growth in the homeschooling community, the Suarezes are holding an April Showers Sale at SchoolhouseTeachers.com, the curriculum division of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. For the month of April, an Ultimate Membership (regularly $179/year) is being sold for $111 per year (code: ONES). This gives an entire family full access to more than 430 online courses (PreK-12), hundreds of streaming videos, and many superior teaching resources. For US customers, the annual membership includes a complimentary 2019–2020 Hey, Mama! Schoolhouse Planner—a great organizational tool that will ship in May. Monthly memberships are also on sale at $1 for the first month (code: ONEDOLLAR), renewing at $14.95/month.
Parents are encouraged to visit SchoolhouseTeachers.com and become members before these April Showers are over.
