Wow! Summer is going by quickly! If you’re like me, you’re desperately trying to cross off those “summer bucket list” items before it’s time to return to the school routine. For example, we squeezed in a camping trip this weekend because we didn’t want to miss out on the chance to sit around the campfire with our kids.
Speaking of not missing out, if you are planning to use online homeschool curriculum this year, here is something you don’t want to miss – a free back to school gift basket brought to you by Global Student Network (GSN). When you enroll your student for a full year curriculum program with Global Student Network between July 15 and August 15, 2018, you will receive:
- Link to free DIY homeschool portfolio kit
- Link to free homeschool record-keeping system
- Free homeschool student ID card
- Free access to Study Island for one year
DIY Homeschool Portfolio Kit
Organize all those pesky records, files, documents in one handy binder.
GSN’s DIY Homeschool Portfolio Kit Includes –
- Materials list to create your portfolio
- Instructions to assemble your portfolio (what to put where)
- Reporting instructions (which reports to print, how often, and how to compile them in the portfolio)
Homeschool Record-Keeping System
GSN’s system allows the parent to create a private account into which they can enter classes their students have taken along with the corresponding grades. The record-keeping system –
- Calculates GPA
- Determines cumulative credits
- Prints report cards*
- Prints transcripts*
*Report cards and transcripts – Because you, as the homeschool parent, are operating the homeschool, all documents generated and printed from our service will bear the name of your homeschool. Global Student Network is a curriculum provider, not an educational institution. Therefore we cannot issue official documents. We simply offer the tools that allow you to generate the documents on your own using your own school’s name.
Homeschool Student ID Card
Why would a homeschool student need an ID card? With an official student ID card, bearing the name of your homeschool, your student could be eligible for:
- Discounts at stores
- Discounts at restaurants
- Access to programs at museums
- Entrance to events
- Entrance to exams (like SAT, ACT)
- Book/newspaper discounts
- Clothing discounts
- Tech/wireless discounts
- Insurance/transportation discounts
- Entertainment discounts
Edmentum™ Study Island is an interactive learning platform where students in grades k-12 can strengthen their knowledge and skills in language arts, math, science, and social studies.
A $99 value – free to you!
