Subscribers to our Homeschooling with the Trivium eletter will receive several freebies in the next issue — coming this week.
Grammar-Land or, Grammar in Fun for the Children of Schoolroom Shire by M.L. Nesbitt (PDF ebook), from Homeschool Freebie of the Day
“What is Grammar Land? Where is Grammar Land? Have you ever been to Grammar Land? Wait a minute and you shall hear…” In this classic read aloud book, published way back in 1878, author Nesbitt creates an amazing fantasy land not unlike “Alice In Wonderland”, where the citizens are the nine parts of speech (Mr. Proper Noun, Dr. Verb, Little Article, etc.) and all are governed by the stern but wise old Judge Grammar. It’s a fun, fascinating way to learn some of the basic grammar rules all the while carried along by the very memorable characters and a wild adventure to boot. Highly recommended!
The Boston Tea Party by Josephine Pollard and H. W. McVikar (PDF ebook), from Homeschool Freebie of the Day
A wonderful old time picture book telling the story of the Boston Tea Party, which occurred in December of 1773, exactly 235 years ago! Yes, it is an old OLD book, originally published in 1812, but don’t let that fool you. This is a hugely enjoyable historical romp back to the events surrounding that milestone event in colonial America. Beautiful, witty illustrations and text in verse make this an absolutely delightful picture book your kids will truly enjoy – and learn a lot of history from, too!
Stitchery For Girls – A Five Year Course (PDF ebook), from Homeschool Freebie of the Day
This classic curriculum was originally written in 1911 as a five year course in hand sewing and stitchery for girls in rural schools and for home instruction. Obviously, there’s no electric sewing machines mentioned here at all… but all the basic instructions, exercises and learning projects in this book are still a great way to teach hand sewing step-by-step today. We know it is pretty much a lost art, but there is some great instruction here! Lots of good advice to the teacher on how to instill good habits into their students as they progress through these projects over the years. Check it out and learn to sew… exactly the same way great-grandma did back when she went to school!
Gold, Peace, and Prosperity by Ron Paul (ebook) from Patriot Newswire
Ron Paul has been the leading champion of sound money in the Congress. Here he explains why sound money means a new gold standard. The monograph is written in the clearest possible terms with the goal of explaining the basics of paper money and its effects of inflation, business cycles, and government growth. He maps out a plan to bring about a dollar that is as good as gold, one that would be protected against manipulation by government and central bankers.
