Christmas In September

I always find it interesting to see what others order for the year. I just put a big order in to Rainbow Resources and wanted to record this stuff for my own records. Part of our school day on Friday was looking through our Rainbow catalog to get some cool ideas of what we wanted to study this year. Caleb said: physics, more about the great outdoors, Maine history and geography. Lundi said: how money works (economics), geology, horses, more Shakespeare and writing.Harrison said: rocks and crystals, more ETC, microscope observation and dogs. Lauren said: nature, more ETC, babies (don't need to order anything for this one) and crystals. With this in mind, here is what I ordered:
  • Cartoon Guide to Physics
  • Exploring Physics
  • Physics and the World Around You
  • Explode The Code (x5)
  • Spectrum Phonics
  • Shakespeare for Young Readers
  • Any Child Can Write
  • Writing Warm-Up
  • Pet Tornado
  • Geology By Design
  • Cave Book
  • Rocks and Fossils
  • Break Your Own Geodes (x2)
  • Glow in the Dark Geodes
  • Smithsonian Crystal Growing Kit
  • Sticky Stones
  • Fossil Collection
  • Pocket Full of Pinecones
  • Knot Tying Game
  • Oh, Wilderness
  • Spotters Guide to Birds of Prey
  • Spotters Guide to the Night Sky
  • Spotters Guide to Rocks and Minerals
  • Spotters Guide to the Weather
  • The Way Babies Were Made (not for Lauren)
  • Where Do Babies Come From? (not for Lauren, either)
  • Engineering the City
  • Historical Who-Dun-Its
  • The Smithsonian Giude to Horses
  • A.O.P Switched on Schoolhouse /Maine
  • Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?
It should arrive in about a week. We're all excited, we love getting our new homeschooling stuff!!!

All I have left to get are our regular consumables (math, grammar, history and writing) and we are......good. to. go!
