BookShark Discount Sale

Save $20 off a purchase of $100 in September!

I’m excited! I met the Director of BookShark at the FPEA conference last May. We got to chatting and I was impressed with the BookShark company and its curriculum offering. Although our homeschool approach is to unschool, the way we do that is to supplement our boys’ interests with loads of books. Outside of Legos, books are the most frequent item that you will find lying around our house.

BookShark is a literature-based curriculum, thus they have tons of books. And maps. And workbooks. And..

BookShark has agreed to offer Homeschool Helpdesk subscribers $20 off a purchase of $100 during the month of September. That’s 20% off! That is the BIGGEST discount BookShark offers and they are offering this to our little Gainesville homeschool community. SWEET!

In case you didn’t know, BookShark is a complete, literature-based, homeschool curriculum developed for Kindergarten to Eighth Grade students. Their curriculum uses literary fiction and nonfiction, biographies, illustrations and hands-on experiments that extends education beyond the typical textbook memorization. Here is a link to their site where you can check out their curriculum packages for your child’s grade level: BookShark Company

BookShark carries some familiar curriculum like Saxon and Singapore Math, Story of the World, Worldly Wise and Handwriting without Tears. Plus they carry complete science kits (I love that Kindergarten covers Biology, Botany & Physics!), markable timelines and maps and other supportive resources that I haven’t found elsewhere.

Here is a list of all their products: BookShark All Products

One of my goals for the Homeschool Helpdesk is to support the Gainesville homeschool community (and surrounding North Florida communities!) with resources targeted to homeschoolers.

So in upcoming months, I’ll be contacting more local area businesses, curriculum providers, and other educational places of interest to see if they are interested in promoting homeschool-specific classes, discounts, field trips, etc.

I hope you’re psyched about this special discount promotion! I know I am! I love actually owning good, quality books that my kids can turn to over and over again instead of returning them every three weeks to the library. It’s fun to have our own mini-library and even “fun-er” to buy homeschool curriculum on sale!

Happy homeschooling!
