COMMUNITY UPDATE

What's Happening at the Co-op...

Please join us in giving a hearty Co-op "Welcome!" to 344 new homeschool families in the last week!

We're pleased to announce our Learning Styles contest winner! Congrats to "saberger", who won a $50 Amazon Gift Card for her response to "How does your child learn?" and how she has adapted her teaching to the learning styles of her children:

"...Each child has a completely different learning style and they look at everything in such different ways. I do try to take advantage of the fact that they look at things differently by doing history together and discussing everything that they learn. It has really been pretty fascinating for me to see these significant differences in them. I mean, I always knew that they had different personalities, but this is so cool and invigorating for me to learn about how THEY learn! And now I can pick and choose curriculum that suits them best! Homeschooling was the BEST...DECISION...EVER!!! :)

Within minutes, they'll be thrilled when they see their name, books, comments, and hours read published at the top of our Reading Champions page!
  • Every Wednesday from June 5th through July 10th the Co-op will randomly draw four (4) winners from all qualifying reading entries. Each winner will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card and will be notified via email.
