Freebies!!! Only 8 more days!!

Their are 2 wonderful freebies for the month of January but they do end in a week so HURRY and take advantage of them!! They are HUGE money savers!!

Deal #1)
     All Home Schoolers Granted One Year Free Access To Library Of 900 Interactive Children's Books For Ages 2-13

     Houston , Texas - January 10, 2011 - "We saw a story about a company called Tom's Shoes where for every pair of shoes purchased they give away a pair to a child in need. We thought that was a pretty great idea so we decided to give away free subscriptions to our entire catalog of books to home schoolers across the country with the hope that they will see why thousands of teachers subscribe to our theory that learning to read should be fun," says president Cliff Dew.
     All home schoolers are being given a one year free subscription to their catalog of 900 animated books, lesson plans, quizzes, story songs, games and puzzles that inspire early childhood literacy for ages 2-13 free of charge now through 12/31/2011.
It¹s an award winning safe and secure “Kid's Friendly” website that helps kids discover the joys of learning to read. MightyBookjr.com is ideal for English as a Second Language and English Immersion. There's even a whole library of books for kids with special needs.
     Simply log on to their home page at
and click on, "SUBSCRIBE NOW" and use this as your COUPON CODE: learntoread (lower case letters)

Deal #2)     
     During the month of January, the Funnix Reading Program will be FREE--no strings, no hidden costs. The Funnix sequence teaches 2 years worth of reading skills and is regularly priced at $249.
     The program is designed by the world's most successful creator of instructional materials, Siegfried (Zig) Engelmann, a maverick professor of Education who has authored many books, including Give Your Child a Superior Mind, and highly successful reading programs like Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons.
     Engelmann says of Funnix,"Teaching the lessons requires a lot less effort, and the lessons are more entertaining. Also, the program consists of 220 daily lessons, so it takes kids farther than most beginning-reading programs-- from being non readers to reading on the third-grade level."
     The free version of Funnix is electronic. You download the entire package of 220 lessons and other material onto your computer, and you have everything you need to teach the program. The steps of what you do and how you do it are spelled out in Teacher’s Guide, which you review before presenting the program. Workbook and textbook activities accompany the lessons. You print these.
     When you teach Funnix, you and you child sit next to each other and watch the computer screen. A narrator presents a series fast-paced exercises in each 30-minute lesson. The narrator asks questions, and your child responds--out loud. Your job is to reinforce correct responses and correct any mistakes by following simple rules for "navigating" through the material.
     In schools, the program works the same way, except that there's usually a small group of children being taught, and the person who leads the group is a teacher or an aide.
     The program has been very successful with a large range of children from ages 4 through 7 who enter the program knowing nothing about reading, including children who have been written off by schools.
     What is Zig Engelmann's reason for providing this amazing give-away? He indicated, "We've been trying for years to do things that make schools successful, particularly with young kids and lower performers. We figured that we're in a position to offer schools and parents a stimulus package that could be worth a lot for every kid who otherwise would not be accelerated or who would be a reading failure. Why not make the electronic package available to anybody who needs it? It doesn't cost us much to do it, and it could help in a small way to counteract the effects of bankrupt schools and dismal times."

I have downloaded both and my children and I are enjoying both of these wonderful free deals!!! Hurry it ends the end of January!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget Blog Hop Tuesday!!!
