About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

Free Twain Lit Unit.

This month's featured book at Wowio is:
The Notorius Jumping Frog of Calaveres County, by Mark Twain. WOWIO MAIN PAGE (scroll to bottom).

You can download this for free without even creating an account, though I actually recommend you sign-up with them. It's all free and they have some really great books. Look for all the Great Projects You Can Build Yourself books - really cool! And yes, even the iPod thing is totally above-board. My daughter received a pink one in the mail - sent straight from Apple - within a week of getting the 10 referals. We didn't even pay shipping.

If you'd like to turn the Jumping Frog into a full unit study, here are some links to free lesson plans:
SHORT STORY LESSON PLAN - for younger students
STUDY GUIDE - for older students (Check out the "Jumping Frog Series, Newspaper Interactive" link in the left-hand column to create a newspaper you can print!)

Just to note - edsitement.net has many literature guides. You can find the main list HERE.
