Scholastic History Simulation Tool Kits Giveaway {Subscribers}

This post contains affiliate links.

This week’s Super Subscriber Giveaway is for four Scholastic History Simulation eBooks:

 These ebooks are a super-cool way to role play a period of history. However, I am not a super-cool mom and they are just going to sit in a folder on my computer. I would love for one of you to put them to good use!

The giveaway is open through Wednesday, September 3rd, and the entry form will be at the bottom of each Are We There Yet? email you receive.

Thanks to all of the amazing bundle sales over the past year, my computer files are brimming with ebooks. Some are not applicable to me, and some I already own, so I am doing a weekly giveaway until they are gone. I’m only opening these giveaways up to my email subscribers. The very simple entry form will be at the bottom of all the emails.

Not an email subscriber? Sign up today! All of my posts will be delivered right to your inbox, which means you will never miss any of the amazing free resources I find. I send out a free monthly writing prompt calendar, and I have a new freebie pack starting in September that I am super excited to share with you! You are going to love it!!

*Note: Some of you receive my posts in your email through WordPress. The subscriber goodies can only be accessed through my newsletters, so you will need to unsubscribe to the WordPress updates and sign up here to receive the freebies.

Poppins Book Nook: My Little Pet Shop

This post contains affiliate links.

PBN What Will I Be

It is time once again for Poppins Book Nook. This month’s theme is: What Will I Be When I Grow Up? Please join in the fun with the linky & giveaway at the end!

So, when I asked Sweetpea what she wants to be when she grows up, she enthusiastically replied, “A pet shop worker!”. Since she adores animals, this came as no surprise, though I’m pretty sure she thinks that all a pet shop employee does is play with critters all day. ;)

We have the sweetest book to go with our animal theme. When I Grow Up is a precious story about a little turtle who snuggles up next to his daddy and tells him what he wants to be when he gets older.

When I Grow Up

Sweetpea has quite a few animal toys, so I decided to make her a printable pet shop set. I left the prices blank to give her some number writing practice. If I can ever remember where I put my handy-dandy laminator, I am going to laminate all of the price tags so she can use a dry erase marker and change it up. She carefully cut out the tags, filled in the prices, and set up shop.

The first set of price tags in the My Little Pet Shop set features the typical pet store animals. The next two pages include some of her favorite stuffed animals. I also added some sea creatures and buggy friends to give a silly twist. Please help yourself to a FREE set for your little animal lover!

*NEW* Homeschooling through the Seasons FB Page

hs seasons


I have a BRAND NEW Facebook group called Homeschooling through the Seasons. I will be posting seasonal and holiday educational resources every day, and I’m inviting you to join & share too! Unlike a Facebook page, where you are allowed to sometimes see only 10% of what I post, a group gives us the opportunity to share ideas and learn from one another.

The Are We There Yet? page isn’t going anywhere. I will still be posting my regular stuff, but the new group allows me to share the cool links that I don’t have time to put into a blog post. Come join us and add a bit of seasonal fun to your homeschool days!
