This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is Peculiar of How do we get there from here?


I have so much respect for those who choose to homeschool especially since I know I could never do it. I don’t think I have the commitment or the patience. At my school, it would probably be recess all day!The Old Schoohouse Magazine is a great resource of inspirational and practical content for all homeschooling families. This full-color 200-page, quarterly publication is designed by fellow homeschoolers who can relate to the unique challenges and issues that you face every day. They also provide you with a Schoolhouse Store to insure that you’re properly equipped with everything you’ll need in your schooling endeavors. Definitely a valuable one-stop place!

Some of the areas the Old Schoolhouse Magazine discusses are:

  • Teachers’ Lounge — Get to know our “Family of Readers”. Each issue includes a “Readers Helping Readers” section, featuring answers from several of our readers to a question posed by one of our readers.
  • Show & Tell — Meet several homeschooling families who tell a little about themselves, how they homeschool, and what they’ve learned. This section demonstrates that homeschoolers are certainly not all alike! You’ll see a wide variety of backgrounds, circumstances, styles, and great ideas.
  • HomeschoolBlogger — Join our community of homeschool web bloggers to learn from others, and meet new friends—without even being online! In this column, we tap into the wealth of wisdom, wit, and creative insight in the best of recent homeschool blogs.
  • Show & Tell, Too — Get to know the people behind educational companies and products! Learn what they have to offer and how you can benefit from products designed especially for homeschoolers—often by homeschoolers.
  • Homeschool Nations — Keep up-to-date on what’s happening in homeschooling news, whether it affects all homeschoolers or is especially relevant to particular states or countries. Homeschool Nation is often brought to you by a homeschooler from your location.
  • And many more!

    I love this mag! I used to get used copies from a lady at my church. No matter how old they get, the stuff in them is ALWAYS relevant. You can keep them for years and always look back at this for useful stuff. I hope I win!

    I have never really looked into TOS until now. They have some amazing features. I love the fact that they offer so many resources for homeschoolers. I just started this past Jan and can use all the help I can get.

    I was really interested by the figure of 33,000 of TOS published quarterly. That’s really respectable!

    You say that you really respect homeschooling, but you couldn’t do it yourself. One of my friends is a mom to twin girls, and she says that people tell her the same thing all the time, they really respect her but they couldn’t do it. She replies, “Sure you could, if you had to.” There are few people who HAVE to homeschool, but for anyone who feels that it is the best option for their family, I hope that they can find the info and support they need to make it a reality. I do HAVE to homeschool all my kids from kindergarten through graduation unless we move out of state (my kids are non-vaccinated, and we live in one of two states without an optional exemption, so I can’t enroll my kids in any public or private school), and even though it seems daunting, I know I’ll do it. My oldest begins kindergarten this fall, and I also have a 3 3/4 y.o., 2 y.o. and am 14 wks pregnant.

    Thanks for the chance to win this mag. It would really be a blessing to me to win it. It looks like a great resource.
