Discounts For HSLDA Members!

It's time for a new school year. New books. Exciting new projects. Challenging new subjects. And feeling overwhelmed by all the planning. If you want a new way to excite your children about current events, but find that you don't have time to sift through the daily newspaper, we may have a cost-effective solution!

God's World News is currently offering a 25% discount on the first subscription for your family to all HSLDA members! God's World News is a bi-weekly or weekly newspaper that is mailed directly to your child and comes in four different levels so that the information is age-appropriate. For your younger children up to 1st grade, they offer Early Edition. Second and third graders will eagerly watch for Taking Off while those who are in grades 4 and 5 will enjoy News Current. Your older children in grades 6-9 will be intrigued with Top Story. You will also receive educational posters that coincide with what the children are reading and access to "Teacher's Helpers" on their website which list ideas on how to use the papers to launch deeper learning.

If you need a little extra help explaining those upper level math or science courses for your teenager, another HSLDA Member Discount may have the answer you have been seeking. Offering a 25% discount to HSLDA members is the online tutoring service SMARTHINKING. Many home school families facing the challenges of high school subjects wish there was a place to turn with tough questions.
