    BookShark is a complete literature-based homeschool curriculum for students from kindergarten through eighth
    grade. It uses a variety of educational resources including literary fiction and nonfiction, biographies, illustrations and hands-on experiments to deliver an engaging and complete education that extends beyond textbook memorization. BookShark combines a proprietary History, Science and Language Arts offering with a wide range of math options, including Teaching Textbooks, Saxon and Singapore, to ensure you have everything you need for an entire school year.

    BookShark’s literature-based homeschool curriculum is easy for parents to teach. All of the planning and preparation is done for you, so you can enjoy learning together. Bookshark provides you with a 36-week, 4-day schedule designed to save one day a week for sports, field trips or other extracurricular activities.

    SecularHomeschool.com members could win either a BookShark Science Package or a BookShark Language Arts Package during our April 2015 giveaway! (AND if you order any of these items from BookShark in April and win the giveaway, BookShark will refund your purchase plus give you a $25 coupon toward your next purchase!)


    BookShark Science Packages are packed full of experiments and resources that keep science interesting! The 36 week school year is fully planned with an instructor's guide, multiple books, an entertaining DVD that walks you through the experiments and science kits with all the materials needed to do the experiments. All of the work and preparation is done so you can focus on teaching! (Retail value between $150 - $210)

    BookShark Language Arts is new and improved! After interviewing numerous focus groups, they found what parents wanted:
    1. They wanted to know what skills they were teaching.
    2. They wanted to know exactly what to say to their students.
    3. They wanted to know if their students had mastered the skill.

    Bookshark had classroom teachers work with homeschool moms to add these changes to their instructor guides. To address those needs, they added:
    1. Weekly overviews to ensure parents know what they are teaching.
    2. Daily lesson plan scripts so parents know exactly how to instruct their students.
    3. Weekly rubrics to help parents evaluate their student's progress.

    The Language Arts giveaway includes the Language Arts Instructor's Guide as well as the corresponding Readers. (Retail value between $150 - $210)

    Money for Homeschooling: Good or Bad?

    Well just looked this up - AZ is at about $7K per pupil. Only Idaho and Utah are below us in spending per pupil. Some states spend twice as much. Some counties way more than 2x as much.

    Big Game Hunting

    Walter is done. He might as well have shot himself. I hope that Cecil is the catalyst for a mass movement against the illegal wildlife trade - be it hunting, trapping, 'pets' or parts.

    Money for Homeschooling: Good or Bad?

    I believe public education is important. I KNOW that if I did not have access to it, my life would be very different. But huge and unwieldy seem to be good descriptions these days.
