Back to Homeschool Giveaway

It’s Back to Homeschool time all around us!  What better way to kick off a new year than a giveaway?  I got with my 9 year-old son and asked him about his favorite homeschool items from the last year and that’s how our Kid’s Choice Basket was born.  Everything in our giveaway basket was personally chosen by him — I think that should speak well for these items!

Kid's Choice Back to Homeschool Giveaway

(This post contains affiliate links; please see disclosure for details.)

Here’s what’s included in our giveaway:

1.  Magic School Bus: A Journey Into the Human Body Kit – If you’ve been following on Instagram, it’s likely that you’ve seen us using this kit and didn’t even know it!  The Boy and Prissy both have had a blast learning about the human body with this Magic School Bus Kit.

2.  Sheldon’s New Primary Language Lessons (generously donated by Brookdale House) – Language arts wasn’t The Boy’s favorite subject for the longest time.  In fact, he loathed it until we found Sheldon’s New Primary Language Lessons.  It changed everything about his view and understanding of language arts and now, get this, he LOVES language arts!  Brookdale House‘s approach to gentle grammar was exactly what he needed!

3.  Escape of the Killer Noun (also donated by Brookdale House.  Pretty sweet, huh?) This living book approach to language arts was also a hit with The Boy.  In fact, he’s waiting patiently for the next one in this series to be released.

4.  The Boxcar Children – I tend to do read-aloud time during lunch and The Boxcar Children was The Boy’s favorite read-aloud from last year.  He loved the series so much that he ended up borrowing other Boxcar Children books from our local library to read on his own.

5.  Peter Pan – This was also one of his favorite read-alouds from last year.  Like The Boxcar Children, Peter Pan was also a hit with my then toddler.  You can’t go wrong with classics like these, friends!  You’re never too old or too young for good literature.

6.  8 pack of Sharpies – The Boy uses Sharpies for journaling, drawing, and Art for Kids Hub projects frequently.  In fact, he’s downright obsessed with Sharpies.  I even have to hide mine from him.  True Story.

7.  Pencils – because you can never have too many, right?

8.  CaseMate 160 Page Journal – The Boy always has a journal in his hands for writing, drawing, and whatever else comes to mind.

    Approximately 25% is left. I also tend to use things upnfrom year to year and wait until I need it. Not buy everything at beginning of year.

  2. I am done at the moment. However, because we school year round, we will buy the next level of AAR and AAS later this year probably. I also look at things all year long and enjoy taking advantage of sales, giveaways and used offers to prepare for future needs.

  3. I’m not sure – this is our first time homeschooling, so I hope I have all that I need, but I’m sure I will find stuff that I don’t have yet.

  4. I haven’t done any shopping yet. I’ve been busy researching homeschool options since this will be our first year in the adventure!!!

  5. Great idea to let him choose! My kids enjoyed the Boxcar Kids also. My MIL shared them with the kids when they were younger, saying that her three boys loved to listen to them read aloud when they were little. My kids followed in their dad’s footsteps. =)

  6. We have already started school for the year. Now I am just waiting on things to go on clearance so I can stock up for next year.

  7. I shop the back to school store sales for the stuff we use up, like markers and notebooks, and I have to carefully plan our budget for the curriculum purchases since we’re in 2 co-ops (4 kids!)

  8. We started school in July so we have the minimum needs covered… everything in this basket would be put to excellent use by my two creative, book-loving kiddos! Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. I would have to say that I have about 50% of my shopping still left to do this weekend. Plus, we have to get our first week of new school clothes or jammies. Kid’s choice of course. Thanks for this great opportunity.

  10. I am not sure as we are still camping waiting for our house to close so we can get our stuff and unpack everything to see what we have or need. I want to but encyclopedias for sure still.

  11. I currently have to homeschool for free, so I have no shopping to do. We’re just using up all the supplies and workbooks we have left, and I scour the internet for free worksheets and lesson ideas.

  12. I have almost checked everything off on our school list. We have 2 learning games and a book or 2 left to get. Of course I know I will probably end up getting more than what’s on the list but that’s OK?

  13. Have just a few little things left…like glitter glue, markers, and a few things for my preschooler! And maybe a stash of chocolate for me! 🙂

  14. At this time we are trying to do it as free as possible, so not much on my list, just basic supplies like glue, and of course, everything in this basket:)

  15. I am done shopping for back to school as far as I know. I tend to buy throughout the year as needed. I am always adding new things and changing things up!

  16. Actually, I am almost done with my shopping, as I have bought most of it throughout last year whenever I had a coupon or something I needed was on sale.
    Thank you for this awesome opportunity. Blessings.

  17. We just started today so I’m done. At least until I find something else I “need,” LOL. Love the Magic School Bus in this kit. It looks like a lot of fun!

  18. I have only a few notebooks and folder left from last year. I still have 95% of homeschool stuff to buy. My husband was in an accident, so we will have to free-school for a while until we can get anything. We could really use one of these baskets! Thanks to you all for throwing this giveaway.

  19. I don’t have any shopping left to do. We actually started school back at the beginning of June. We missed a lot last year and we’ve already had a few weeks of breaks this year (2 weeks I hadn’t planned for). We’re already behind on some things.

  20. I haven’t done any back to school shopping so far. I still have a lot of stuff we didn’t finish from this past year.

  21. I think I am pretty much done. There are one or two things that I’m playing around with the idea of getting. But I’m not sure yet.

  22. I have most of my shopping done. We school year round, so I am buying things as we need them. I have gotten some great deals at Back to School sales, though!

  23. I’m done with our school shopping. Since my kids are aged 4 and under, I didn’t have much for which to shop.

  24. I probably have 25% left to buy! We will be going on a special date to buy some of the supplies at Target 🙂

  25. I have most of my shopping done, good thing since we start next week! Thank you for the opportunity to enter your give away!

    I still need to purchase nearly everything that we didn’t already have from previous years. I’m still scrambling to scrape together the money. Anyone want to buy some cloth diapers and baby carriers, lol?!

  27. I *think* I’m all done with my shopping. Of course, I’ve thought that before & then needed 1-2 more things 🙂

  28. We are half done. The budget is extremely tight this year so everything else will have to be added throughout the year

  29. I do my curriculum shopping in the spring, so that has been done for a while now. I wait to buy supplies like pencils and notebooks until August, when they go on sale. I still have to do that shopping because we’ve been so busy this month with camping trips, day camps, and a family vacation.

  30. I bought A LOT when all the school supplies items went on clearance in late August last year. We had more than enough to start this year without any additional shopping for supplies. Our curriculum is bought and our books are on the shelf. Yay! 🙂

  31. I am still trying to decide what to use for math this year, and if we will start studying a foreign language this year.

  32. I have all the major stuff already, however, there are a few things I still need to get when the money is available. This is a great giveaway. Tell your son he did a great job coming up with things for the basket!

  33. I have all of our non-three ‘R’ subjects to shop for. I have reached that point where I am second guessing everything I have purchased, though!
