  1. Hi y'all, We just received a truckload of our own books that can't be sold in bookstores, since they have tiny dings, bends, or scratches on them (the content is unaffected). So we're selling them for 60% off the cover price. Writing With Ease, Story of the World, First Language Lessons, Writing With Skill, The Top-Secret Guide to Getting Your In-Laws to Stop Nagging You About Your Homeschooling Choices, and more! Ok, one of those may have been a joke. The books are at our office, not our warehouse, so you'll need to purchase them by phone. Call 1.877.322.3445 to find out what's available, and to buy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  2. Hi all, I knew you'd want to know that we're offering two brand-new audio lectures by Susan Wise Bauer, recorded at homeschooling conferences: Burning Out: Why it Happens and What to do About it Every home school family finds itself in the doldrums occasionally. But when the doldrums last for weeks or months, it’s time to consider the possibility of burnout. In this seminar--drawn from years of personal experience with effective home education and burnout--Susan defines burnout, investigates the elements that make burnout more likely, and offers a series of practical, experience-tested suggestions for moving forward. and What is History? How and Why Should I Teach It? Choosing the right program isn’t the first step in teaching history to your students. Before you can make informed decisions about what curricula to use, you need to understand why you’re teaching history at all--and define what your student should be gaining from it. This seminar will explain what history actually is (you might be surprised!), survey different methods and approaches for teaching, and suggest appropriate goals for elementary, middle-grade, and high school students. Both are now available as MP3 downloads, along with all of our other lectures.
  3. Hi all, The instructor book and the student book for Writing With Skill, Level 3 are now available as PDF products on our webstore. The physical books are being printed right now, and will soon be shipping to our warehouse. Enjoy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  4. Hi y'all, Just a quick note that we have posted free samples of "Writing With Skill, Level 3 Instructor Text" and "Writing With Skill, Level 3 Student Workbook" on the Peace Hill Press samples page. For each book, the sample contains the Table of Contents, the first ten weeks of lessons, and any appendices that are relevant to those lessons. We are getting ready to hand these books to the printer, and expect to have copies for sale within the next two months. Peace Hill Press will have it first, then Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I'll announce availability here, and Peace Hill Press will also update you through its Facebook and Twitter pages. Thanks for your patience. Enjoy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  5. Hey y'all, Just a quick reminder that Peace Hill Press has lowered its prices by 20% on nearly everything in the store...and we've lowered the prices on our already-discounted "School in a Box" kits by 10%. No need to enter coupon codes, etc; the prices are already cut. This sale continues through Monday at noon Eastern time. Justin at PHP
  6. Folks, It's July and there's nothing good on TV, and we're bored, and we have so many stacks of lightly-scratched-and-dented copies of Writing With Ease workbooks (and a few other things) sitting in the office that we've got no room for our normal squirtgun wars. So in desperation, we're selling these books at 60% off the cover price. Orders over $50 will get free shipping. Call us and save a ridiculous amount of money on your back-to-school shopping: 1.877.322.3445.
  7. Sometimes our books are damaged in the printer-to-warehouse-to-bookstore journey, and we can no longer sell them at full price. But if you don't mind a bit of minor wear & tear (small scratches, etc), you can save money on all kinds of Peace Hill Press products! We keep a list of currently-available discounted books here. Since they're kept at our office, rather than at our warehouse, you'll need to order them by phone. Call us at 1.877.322.3445.
  8. Hope this works, I've never tried an attachment before. But I thought of you all right away and couldn't leave this in my email in-box. :) Aren't they cute?
  9. Hi all! The first ten weeks of Writing With Skill, Level 2 Instructor Text and Writing With Skill, Level 2 Student Text are now available as free PDF downloads here. That's over 400 pages of educational awesomeness. Remember, you can also pre-order these books from us by emailing info AT peacehillpress DOT com.
  10. UPDATE on Writing With Skill, Level Two: We're happy to announce that this weekend we're sending Writing With Skill, Level Two (Instructor Text) and Writing With Skill, Level Two (Student Text) to the printers. We expect to be shipping books to customers by early September (possibly earlier than that, but we don't want to raise unrealistic hopes). The books are going to be fantastic. Also, huge: 632 pages for the Instructor text and 504 for the Student text. We should market them as bicep-training. In anticipation of their release... 1. On Monday, August 5th, we will make available the first TEN WEEKS of the Student and Instructor texts, as a free downloadable PDF (it will also include the Table of Contents and Introduction, so you can get a good idea of where the year's curriculum is going). 2. This coming Monday (July 29th) we will begin accepting pre-orders for the print version of WWS 2 at a DISCOUNTED RATE [10% off the cover price, plus free shipping within the continental United States]. This offer will only be available until the books are released. We will also offer a special discount on the downloadable PDF version of Writing With Skill 2 (student and instructor), which will be available on our store for ten dollars less than the price of the print books, from July 29th until the print books arrive. Here's how pre-ordering a print book will work: --To pre-order the print book, send an email to info AT peacehillpress DOT com with the subject line "WWS 2 pre-order." The email must include the following information: your first and last name, your telephone number, your email address, your shipping address (and credit card billing address, if it's different), and how many copies of WWS 2 Student and WWS 2 Instructor you want to order. --If you pre-order a print book, then when the books are at our warehouses and ready to ship, we will call you on the phone and take your credit card information, and then ship you the books. --This pre-order must only include WWS2 materials. You may not add other items or products into the order. --We receive the books before Amazon and other retailers do, so this is likely your fastest way to receive them. --To order a PDF copy, just go to peacehillpress.com (starting on Monday, July 29th) and look under Language Arts>>Writing>>Writing With Skill>>Level 2 PDF download. If we've forgotten some detail, please ask, either here or on our Facebook page.
  11. Hello all, From now until Mother's Day, we're discounting our book of honest-poetry-for-mothers-of-small-children, "What it Is is Beautiful," down to $4.99 on our webstore. This book makes a wonderful gift for a young mother. It's not poetry about sunsets and flowers (mostly). It's about minivans and cracker-crumbs and secretly wishing your family was like the shiny families in commercials. Readers describe it like this: "Her poetry is not the kind of poetry that is hard to understand or tries to be too smart for its own good - instead, it's full of relatable language and common experiences to which every parent reading will be able to nod in agreement, or chuckle, or weep with gratitude that someone else has been through what you're going through." "Tender, funny, life-giving." "Her poems are so accessible and relatable, and they read like a shot of pure grace." Find out more, read samples, and order the book here.
  12. Says dh, who just came home from a bike ride into the St. Charles Riverfront area. Apparently, there was a Scottish festival or some such thing going on. Sadly, he took no pictures. :thumbdown:
  13. Hey folks, it’s SALE time! We know that in mid-February, when it’s cold and bleak outside (yes, yes, Southern Hemisphere folks, we see you smirking. Your day will come!), and you’ve been “doing school” for months, and some things are working but lots of things aren’t, and you wonder if you’re actually de-educating your children, and you can’t play “run outside so Mommy can have five peaceful minutes in the bathroom PLEASE” for another six weeks (unless you want the little darlings to get frostbite)…it can feel like “Groundhog Day,” in which a character is stuck in endless repetition of the same dreary February day. So we're doing our part to inspire you with a little Sale on inspiring (and fun) items: this Saturday through Monday, on our webstore, all our audio-lecture MP3’s will be $1 less; you’ll save $5 on The Well-Trained Mind or The Well-Educated Mind; Peace Hill Press coffee mugs will be $2 less, and tote bags will be $1 cheaper. We believe in you. The kids will be OK; you’ll be OK; and yes, Spring will come again.
  14. Nothing in the article will probably be all that new to people on this board but I thought people might be interested in reading it. http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/magazine/home-schooling-pioneer-susan-wise-bauer-is-well-versed-in-controversy/2012/10/29/521a3070-da80-11e1-9745-d9ae6098d493_story.html
  15. Ok, please don't shoot me but I've been around for here for a few years. I'll admit, I'm not incredibly active but I've read a lot. I find such useful information on these boards. Most of my curriculum choices have been a result of reviews, rants, raves, etc. that I've read here. But somebody please enlighten me: WHERE DID RYAN GOSLING AND KILTS COME FROM????? LOL Or is it one of those things everybody seems to "know" about but nobody knows when/how it started. They are certainly hilarious. :lol::lol::lol::lol::bigear::lol::lol::lol:
  16. Peace Hill Press is proud to offer our very first book of poetry: "What it Is is Beautiful: Honest Poems for Mothers of Small Children," by Sarah Dunning Park. Writing from the laundry-laden trenches, Sarah shares nineteen spot-on poems that capture the jumble of emotions inherent in motherhood: delight, guilt, resentment, and gratitude. Here's what some actual moms have said about it: "Sarah's poetry is poetry for 'the rest of us.' Reading her work is like talking to a friend--a friend that speaks lyrically and says things we're all thinking. Her poems make me smile and nod like an idiot--I'm pretty sure they were written for me." Tsh Oxenreider, creator of SimpleMom.net "These spare, evocative poems remind us that there are no easy answers in mothering--but that strength and comfort lie in asking the questions." Susan Wise Bauer "I keep a copy in my purse, for times when I need comfort, or a smile of recognition, or a handy small object with which to swat my child's hand away from the grocery store shelf of Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs." Name Withheld, but She Knows Who She Is It's now available for the ridiculously low price of 6.99. That's, like, 54 cents per incredible poem. (We know you just spent too much on Mother's Day presents, so we're being kind to your wallet.) And if you buy it along with 14 dollars' worth of other products on the store, we'll discount it 50%! See samples, fall in love, and purchase it at: http://www.welltrainedmind.com/store/what-it-is-is-beautiful.html
  17. ETA this is not about cereal that was one point of aggravation please do not respond over the cereal that is not the point I was stating how my daughter was acting and it seemed that was hard to understand so to be clear this is not about the cereal I have a 15 year old daughter who is a really great kid 99% of the time. She has some small moments nothing ever major. She helps me out with the youngers doesn't run wild has great manners other adults adore her but every now and then I am just kinda at a standstill. This is the situation... A few nigts ago she came to me with Can my friend stay all night? OK there has only been one friend who comes here often which I totally adore and calls me mom. I just love her considering the relationship it is not an ask situation so right off I knew this was someone else. She talks about a kid I have never even heard of before. Well I say I guess it is summer we do live in the boonies not many other kids around etc. Right off she says the kid is coming Friday and leaving Sunday night.Um NO! I don't know this kid I would not feel comfortable with all that. OK fine she will leave Saturday afternoon. I fully expect the kids mother to drop her off I have been giving directions over the phone assuming it was the mother No it was the sister in law who looked about 16 to be truthful. Not happy but the kid is here what can I do right? OK move forward it is dinner I hear my kid go into the bedroom telling her what we are having for dinner the kid is all I don't eat that tell your mom I already ate, OK for me and 4 kids we have a 600 a month budget for food and not food items this includes the animals food too toilet paper etc. Everything is budgeted I have a kid with food issues (tourettes adhd etc) Meals even breakfast is totally planned down to how much cereal is needed for a week. I always make sure to get a bit extra in case of guests a bit ..... I tell the kid I will wrap her dinner up and she can have it later if she gets hungry. I catch the door to my daughters room locked this is a major NO NO we do not lock doors I knock I enter there is no reason to lock doors especially since she is sharing a room with her sister. This ticks me off I say nothing I wake up this morning to make my youngest breakfast the bag of cereal is gone. Just gone I am like OK where did the cereal go? They had taken it in the bedroom at some point and ate over half the bag. Just snacking on it like chips or something. I am very angry. That kids plate is still wrapped in my fridge along with lastnights leftovers. The rule in this house being if you are hungry later you eat the leftovers period. Now she tells me the kid will be picked up tonight instead of this afternoon. I want the kid to leave I am angry and I feel like I am going to snap. Am I overreacting?
  18. ...in a while, I thought I'd mention the Highland Games are this weekend in a nearby town. :D. I'm thinking I might have to take the kids. And a camera :D
  19. I take no responsibility for this. Dh has heard of the hive's fascination with kilt pics, and emailed this to me with the request to share it as his contribution to the hive.
  20. In case you haven't noticed my post count, I'm a total Noob. I would love to learn more about the "culture" of this place. Would you be willing to link me to what, in your opinion, is an essential thread, here at the forums? I'd love to learn more about this place! :bigear: What are some classic threads that I could go read that in your opinion, would give me a real flavor for some of the great discussions you've had around here. (If they're funny, well, then, so much the better!) I'd prefer to avoid making silly Newbie mistakes by bringing up topics that have been discussed ad nauseum.:blushing: Although, of course, it's possible that a thread like this one is that very thing! So, forgive me if it is.:blush: School me? :001_smile:
