Black Friday Deals- Homeschool Edition
Updated: Nov 27, 2020
All of the best deals on curriculum, games and more, compiled to make your week just a little easier!
If your week looks anything like mine, I know that having these links all in one handy spot will be a time saver and a game changer. I compiled a list of secular curriculum resources, plus some of the other sites and pages we use a lot during our homeschool week, PLUS handy Amazon links for games (this is the best time of year to stock up on ones you've been wanting to grab) and other goodies. I'll mention the discount and the dates valid for every link. Some of them will be Black Friday only, some Cyber Monday, and some are valid through both, so make sure to check! Happy Shopping, friends!!
Blossom & Root- one of our favorite, secular, curriculum companies. You can find reviews of the River of Voices history curriculum here or a general overview here . They are offering 30% off of anything in their store, and the sale runs from now until 12/31! Shop your options here and use code frozen30.
Grammar Galaxy- This fun-to-use grammar curriculum is also well-loved here. (I promise I'll get a review up soon!). Note: This company does offer a few non-secular options, but Grammar Galaxy itself IS secular. It's grammar done through story format, so if you're a literature based homeschooler, this will fit right in. The kids love to go on "missions" and learn about grammar in an engaging way. You can save 25% here with code HOLIDAY through 11/30.
Brave Writer- On Cyber Monday only (11/30) you can Buy 1, Get 1 FREE from any of their literature singles! So any single-issue Arrow, Dart or Boomerang, and in any combination. This means if you've been wanting to dip your toes in to Brave Writer, OR if you just didn't know whether Dart or Arrow would be a better fit, for example, you can get one of each to try out.
SEA Books & More- The online bookstore run by the Secular Eclectic Academic homeschool group creators, this is a great spot to get curriculum and books that are rigorously vetted to be fully secular in nature. You can get 30% with code SAVE30 through 12/1. Check out the most extensive Harry Potter unit study out there or this amazing resource for Project Based Learning!
Pandia Press- A wonderful resource for history and science. We'll be using their newly released History Quest (and I promise I'll review them too!) and they are also a source for Real Science Odyssey. They have 25% off through 12/1. No code needed, discount reflected in your cart.
Evan-Moor Skill Sharpeners are my favorite workbooks around! We've used many of them, as well as the Fundamentals, with great success. I also have a review of their Top Student workbooks here! This is a Cyber WEEK sale, so it will not start until 11/30 but will run until 12/4! You'll be able to save 30% with the code CYBER30
Build Your Library- This is another great resource for curriculum with a Charlotte Mason/literary approach. They also have some really wonderful unit studies, including Harry Potter! They have 25% off of all products, from 11/23-12/6 with the code EGGNOG!
Curiosity Stream- I know a lot of us hesitate to add one more streaming service to our list, but this one is SO worth it. I downloaded it to watch the amazing dino videos when we began the Blossom & Root Prehistory unit, but we'll for sure keep it even when we're finished. It's chock full of amazing content and makes a perfect supplement for any subject. 40% off of your year signup on 11/25-11/29 or 25% for Cyber Monday on 11/30.
Bookshop is an amazing book resource that supports small independent book sellers. If you'd like to avoid Amazon, shop here! I'm still working on cultivating my book lists, but will update with more soon! In the meantime, search for anything specific you might be looking for. They'll be offering FREE SHIPPING from 11/27-11/30! (while this may not sound like much, it's huge considering shipping costs are often what drive people to buy from Amazon, even though the books themselves are comparably priced. So take advantage of this AND do something good with your dollars!)
Epic! reading app for kids- We LOVE this reading app! There is a huge selection of books, of all different genres, AND I've even found some of the selections for the B&R River of Voices curriculum. There are audio books, and also a great selection of "Read to Me" books, which are a great tool for budding readers. Get 50% off of a year of Epic! through 12//6, no code needed. (You can have up to 4 readers per parent account, and tailor each reader account to the child's age and interests! This is perfect for families)
Better World Books is my favorite source for used books! You can check out my ode to them, and all the things I love about them, in this post here. They're offering 20% off of 3 or more used books (that ship from them) plus free shipping! Valid through 11/29 with code FRIDAY20
Rocketbook reusable notebooks! These are amazing to have around, whether it's the newer hybrid planner option, the regular Fusion planner, or just a straight notebook. The glidey paper can also work wonderfully for kiddos with dysgraphia or other kiddos who need less resistance while writing. Of course, the eco-friendly nature goes without saying! Get 25% off through 12/1 AND a Free executive notebook with orders over $75!
Kiwi Co subscription boxes- The geography based Atlas crate is a favorite here, and something we look forward to getting each month! (we get the Deluxe with the included book, and LOVE making an easy unit study out of them!) but the deal goes for any of the boxes across their line, which is up to 30% (depending on the length of subscription) plus FREE shipping with code MERRY, through 11/30

Check my Amazon storefront list for games and keep an eye on any favorites! Now through Cyber Monday is a great time to stock up on anything you've had your eye on! For instance, Catan and Ticket To Ride are both HALF off right now, so it's a great time to snag them.
And that's all I got for now, friends! I hope this helps you stock up on any needed curriculum or resources for the spring! Please be sure to share this, if you found it helpful! It means a lot!
