Homeschool Planet - FREE 30-Day Trial

Are you thinking about a new planner? Or, do you need to change what you're currently doing?

If so, organize your world with a subscription to Homeschool Planet - everything you need to organize your home and your home school in one easy-to-use online planner!

But, don't take our word for it - here's what Co-op Member Mary C. has to say:

"This program got us back on track. We were at the point of chaos. I felt like nothing was getting done, and was yelling at the kids more than teaching. Now we print an easy to access "master list of assignments" each week. I can delay, replace or combine assignments to make room for field trips, impromptu science experiments, or sudden artistic inspiration. It just take a second. I was even able to create my own class and lesson plans to be incorporated into the schedule. And now instead of yelling at kids to get things done, I have identifiable moments to praise them as they cross a completed task off the "master list."" Click here for more testimonials!

Homeschool Planet now offers NEW time saving lesson plans featuring professionally-designed lesson plans for popular curriculum such as Saxon Math, Human Body Detectives, Mystery of History, Wordly Wise 3000 Online, Institute for Excellence in Writing, and many more, so you can spend more time teaching and less time planning.

For some, there are a few more details to be worked out before we can go live. We hope to take these Group Buys live in the few weeks. Stay tuned!

Member Meter

Member Meter Intro

Negotiating and sponsoring GroupBuy savings is an expensive and time-consuming proposition, but we love doing it, especially when there is strong member interest.

This section of the newsletter is your opportunity to see -- and influence -- what programs and products we bring to our membership.

Please take a look, then let us know: What do you think?

Are you looking for a way to ensure your K-5 child gets exactly the kind of math practice she or he needs? If so, we may have found an answer for you!

Komodo is an award-winning, online math practice program with a unique approach: when you sign up, you tell them about your child(ren) and they provide a short diagnostic math test for them to take. Then a qualified math teacher assigns a personalized learning plan based on their age, test scores and individual needs. Komodo’s approach complements your core math curriculum by providing your child with targeted practice in the curriculum areas that matter most.

As you would expect, that personalized attention adds a bit to the cost, but your Co-op membership will save you 20% off the retail price of $89.99 with sufficient participation, so please:
Take a look and let us know:  What do you think?
If you are looking for an online program that your 3rd-5th grader can use independently to improve their writing and grammar skills, heads up!

CaptivationStation is an innovative digital writing and grammar platform based on the award-winning WriteSteps curriculum. Students get step-by-step daily lessons that they can watch and then practice independently.

A unique feature of this program is that students can share their writings for feedback from other students with similar interests in a safe environment.

If you were to get this program on your own, you'd have to pay $619 for a classroom license, but Co-op members can get a 1-year license for $119 per student with sufficient participation, so please:
