English 1: Excellence in Literature is Now Available!

As most of you know, I’ve been working non-stop to get the first level of the Excellence in Literature: Reading and Writing Through the Classics series out in time for the new school year. Due to the pinched nerve in my neck, I have been behind schedule, but as of about 5 minutes ago, the e-book is now up and for sale! I’m so relieved;-).

The first level of Excellence in Literature now up and available! I’ll be sending out news in the e-zine, and personal notes to everyone who asked to be notified, but for everyone else, here’s the order link!

    Do you have a sample of the Excellence in Literature:English 1? It is hard to tell about assignments and get a feel for the curriculum without it?

    Hi Janice! I haven’t stopped by here in forever. Sorry! Life is busy. I met your husband last month at the RRHE homeschool meeting and found out that we are practically neighbors. Maybe we can get together sometime.
