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 concerned that in this digital age your kids are not developing a basic facility for cursive writing? If so, we may have found the answer for you!

CursiveLogic is an award-winning, innovative cursive writing curriculum that teaches the four fundamental strokes that form the cursive alphabet, rather than relying on rote memorization. This can make the subject much easier to teach and learn. It was developed by Linda Shrewsbury, a Harvard trained educator and a former homeschool mom, when she was asked by a 23 year-old, special needs student for help in learning how to sign his name.

The CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack has includes everything you need, including the workbook and easy-to-follow video instructions, to teach your kid penshipship that will last a lifetime. It retails for $49, but we can get members a $39 price (21% savings) with sufficient participation, so please:
