  • Giveaway: Pick and Draw Game

    67 comments / Posted by 7

    This next prize was donated by Rich over at Pick and Draw Games. It's a fun game that everyone in the family can play and enjoy. (What better way to overcome burnout than changing it up a little with a card game that encourages creativity?) In the game, you create different cartoon faces based on what card you draw. Even the most insecure artists can join in, because you are simply copying the card. Free spirits can customize as much as desired. There is no winner or loser in this game! We've all played this here at Geography Matters. (Here's a little tip for your smallest players: if they are having trouble making the shapes and becoming frustrated, let them trace the cards instead!) There are two sets of the game up for grabs today! Just leave us a comment telling us what your favorite card or board game is. You can also earn additional entries by liking Pick and Draw on Facebook. Be sure to use the Rafflecopter widget below to let us know which tasks you've completed. a Rafflecopter giveaway

  • Facebook Party Freebies

    6 comments / Posted by 7

    Thank you so much for participating in our Facebook party. We are so glad to have you! As a token of our appreciation, we are giving you some free products tonight. These are both related to our first topic, Notebooking. First up is an mp3 workshop download of Establishing Excellent Student Notebooks by Cindy Wiggers. Besides graduating all three of her children from homeschooling, Cindy founded our company, Geography Matters, with her husband Josh. She also has a passion for hands-on learning and this workshop is one of our most popular! You'll need to follow the link and add the mp3 download version to your cart.

    Establishing Excellent Student Notebooks

    Tonight's other freebie from Geography Matters is a digital download of Cindy's Nature Journal. This is a perfect way to get your feet wet with student notebooking. Your child will learn to delight in nature and create a fully customized nature notebook with these printable pages!

    Nature Journal eBook

    To receive both of these items for free, you will need to place BOTH products in your cart. (Even if you only want one, the coupon only works if both items are there. You will not be obligated to download the file you don't want later on.) Use the coupon code FBFREEBIE at checkout. Be sure to select "Digital Download Only — No Shipping Required" as your shipping method. After you checkout (the system will not ask for your credit card information as long as nothing else is in your cart), go to the "File Downloads" tabs in your account to get your files. (These will remain in our system for you, so you have plenty of time to download! Just be sure you check out within 24 hours, because the coupon code will expire on January 13th at 9 pm.)

    We also have another freebie for you, generously donated by the great folks at A Journey Through Learning lapbooks. They have donated one of their new DigiFolios on Current Events. This is a perfect way to get your student into digital lapbooking!
