Phew! It’s taken me all day long to trawl through the over 300+ emails in my inbox and pull out the very best deals for homeschool families (and a couple for those who work from home or have their own blog or business. Read all the way to the end for the best deals of the weekend!
Homeschool In The Woods
Our favourite history go-to, Homeschool In The Woods, is running a Cyber Sale until Monday! Ancient history, file folder games, timelines, activity packs, and war history, all bundled up and ready to go! If you want to see more about how their products work, hop over to read our reviews.
Homeschool Planet Christmas
The newly expanded Christmas Planet is on sale for ONLY $5.95. Christmas Planet! is a research unit study for families. Learn about the Christmas customs, traditions, and eats from 24 different countries as you study this joyous holiday as a family. Print the packet, color the badges, explore the links, and expand your understanding of Christmas around the planet!
If you’re not already familiar with Homeschool Planet, it’s my absolute favourite planner hands-down! There isn’t anything it can’t do (read my reviews for just some of the ways it can be used). Try it out free for 30 days.
Once you harness the power of Homeschool Planet, then see if your favourite curricula have partnered up with them and you can purchase the lesson plan (not the curriculum) and have it automatically schedule the classes for you – we’ve used a few of these with great success.

My Teaching Library
Don’t miss this huge sale of 25% off a year’s membership at My Teaching Library. Download as many products as you need for the whole year! You can read more about it in our recent review. This sale is good until the end of the Year 🙂
40% off Forbrain
It’s hard to explain exactly what Forbrain is and how it works…but it definitely works! We always know when our children need a ‘top up’ or repeat Forbrain program – how do we know? When they become unfocussed and they don’t complete their daily homeschool work in a timely manner. When their reading aloud sessions become choppy and difficult to follow. After a repeat of using Forbrain for a few weeks again, there is a huge difference – the homework is completed and they have some free time, and reading aloud becomes a pleasure to listen to. There also aren’t near as many uhms and ughs in their conversations. You can read our review from the first time we used this program here. For this weekend only – get not just the 30% discount they have advertised – use the discount code 3B8304462 for 40% off!
Homeschool Code Academy
Does your child want to learn how to code using Python? My son has been using Homeschool Code Academy’s Python for Beginners: Learn Coding at Home for the past few months and really enjoying it. He’s learned step-by-step through the process with Matt Bohn, a software engineer who himself was homeschooled – who better to lead the class? Learn all the ins-and-outs of it in our full review. Matt is offering a 20% discount using the coupon code THANKFUL20 until November 30.
Lessonface $15 credit
Let’s sing in the New Year! My children have used Lessonface for a few voice lessons (they also teach many instruments as well) and loved it. When you can’t take music lessons in person, then sign up for these virtual lessons with a live teacher! Choose the teacher who will best fit your interests and book your lesson times. If you sign up for lessons valued at over $30.00, then we’ll both receive a $15.00 credit 🙂
My children have loved listening to Maestro Classics CDs over the years. they love listening to the instrumentals, while I love that they also come with curriculum guides to give them insight into the stories they represent, as well as some musical history. You can read our reviews here. This weekend they have a great sale on their individual CDs as well as their 12-CD collection bundle.
