A Giveaway!

All over the blogosphere, I am reading posts from homeschoolers who are in the midst of planning for their upcoming year. I am sort of there, sort of not. I know pretty much what we are doing, but I have some nitty gritty details I still need to sort out. But that will have to wait til we get finished unpacking and I finish up some other stuff.

In the meantime, I have come across two recordkeeping books I would love to give to someone who needs them! These books are put out by The Notgrass Company. To read more about them, go to this link. These were created specifically for people who use a more relaxed/unschooling/unit study style of learning. It is a way to capture all the learning that takes place. I got them several years ago with the intent of using them, but found that the old adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applied. My way of recordkeeping was working, so why change it up? So, I shelved these and found them when we moved.

I will say that the covers on these are the old covers and you can't see them on the website. One is beige in color and has a horse on it and one is yellow with a butterfly. Both are cute. The horse would work for a boy or girl and the butterfly is totally girl!

Leave a comment saying which one you want and I will choose two winners at the end of the week.

Recordkeeping/homeschooling not your thing? Stay tuned-- I have more giveaways coming!
Pin It!

Those are great, but would end up sitting on my shelf, too. I'm thinking of giving away a few items I found on my own shelves today. Great idea!

We would love either of these, as we homeschool two girls. The style suits us as we like to keep track of the other things we do, not just the "academic" stuff!

Congratulations on your new home. :)

I would love the Butterfly! Found my way back here via Heart of the Matter!

The horse one would work great for me! I have a boy.
I consider myself VERY relaxed when it comes to homeschooling. I've been at it for 12 years, just graduated my oldest. My youngest is in Kindergarten at the moment. We will start first grade sometime in the next month or two.
I guess I will be a homeschool mom for at least 12 more years!! LOL!

Anyway, I enjoy reading your blog! Thanks for sharing with us.
Love and blessings,

I'm right in the middle of homeschool planning. We have all of our books, now I'm trying to figure out a weekly schedule/daily schedule.

I've never used a lesson plan book, but want to.

We'd love either one.
Thank you

Hi! We are new to homeschooling, so any and all help (including a new planner!) would be appreciated. Thanks! Kellyann

Ooh! We would love either of the planners, for two reasons. 1: who doesn't love free stuff!?! and 2: we have one 1st grader using his own Notgrass record planner and a Kindergarten brother chomping at the bit to get his own "cool school stuff!"

I recently read a neat Charlotte Mason quote that said something like "education is a life-style, an atmosphere and a discipline." Anyway, we will be having our 3rd little boy this October--I would love a planner like this for my oldest boy! Thanks for the opportunity! Blessings on your homeschool year
