Win a FREE Second Form Latin Set! Entering is EASY!

Most of us have settled into the new semester and are busy pressing forward to finish on schedule, so we figured it’s the perfect time to liven things up with another curriculum contest. Since we know so many of you have had success with First Form Latin and plan to continue with Second Form, we’re giving away a Second Form Latin Set.

I just got off the phone with a customer in the Virgin Islands. We’ve gotten about 9″ of snow today, with more on the way this evening.  I do love a good snow day, but as I gazed out my office window and saw yet another vehicle slide off the road, I couldn’t help but wonder what kind of day he was having in that tropical location.

So the question for this contest is a just-for-fun poll. If you could be anywhere else in the world today, where would you go?  To enter simply write your answer as a “Comment” to the contest post on the Finders-Keepers Facebook page. The winner will receive a free Second Form Latin Set.

All entries must be received by Noon CST on Wednesday, February 16th, and the drawing will be that afternoon. One winner will be selected randomly from the number of responses received. The winner will be announced on Facebook, and he or she will receive a message from Finders-Keepers requesting shipping information. Please feel free to repost the contest information on other Facebook pages, and to share it with friends and family. However, we do request that responses be limited to one per person.

And don’t forget, the Finders-Keepers website offers fantastic prices on Memoria Press Latin materials with FREE shipping on all orders of $50 or more.

Win a FREE Apologia Biology Set (Student Text, Solutions & Tests Manual, Extra Test Booklet). Entering is EASY!

contest post on the Finders-Keepers Facebook page.  The winner will receive a free

For our Apologia Biology contest, we had originally planned to touch upon biodiversity and the interdependence of life.  However, the oil crisis in the Gulf—which is, of course, upsetting the balance of nature—is such a sensitive and/or grievous subject for so many that we thought it best to go in a different direction for now.  Having said that…

Since Biology is the study of life,  for this week’s contest we’d like you to name a song that has some form of the word “life” in the title.  It can be any genre (hymns, country, pop, etc.) , from any era, and in any language.

To enter simply write your answer as a “Comment” to the appropriateApologia Biology Set.

All entries must be received by Noon CST on Wednesday, June 16th, and the drawing will be that afternoon. One winner will be selected randomly from the number of responses received. The winner will be announced on Facebook, and he or she will receive a message from Finders-Keepers requesting shipping information. Please feel free to share the contest information with friends and family, but we do request that responses be limited to one per person.

The Finders-Keepers weekly Facebook drawings have been so popular that we’ve decided to continue them into the summer.  We’ve been blessed, amused, informed, and encouraged by the responses we’ve received to our previous contests, and giving away free materials has been downright fun.  Now we’d like to hear from our Facebook friends regarding what they’d like the opportunity to win in the coming weeks.

Entering is really easy. First browse through the items offered at our website, then respond with a comment to the contest post on our Facebook page naming an item you’d like to see offered as one of our giveaways.  (Feel free to explain why, if you like.)  There’s a lot of good stuff available, so for this week only we’re encouraging participants to enter more than once.  Additionally, we’d love for you to pass the contest information along to likeminded friends to increase the chance of having your favorite products featured as prizes. For instance, if your student will be in an Apologia Biology co-op next year,  you might invite everyone in the group to enter products from that category as potential prizes.

The entries will be tallied and considered in conjunction with shopping trends and our advertising budget to determine which items will be given away in upcoming contests.

All entries must be received by Noon CST on Wednesday, June 2nd, and the drawing will be that afternoon.

Win a Free DIVE into Math Instructional CD! (Choice of Level) Entering is EASY!


Our daily interaction with numbers is almost constant, and largely unconscious. We go through our hours making instant calculations, and occasionally we apply our energies to more complicated problems. Can I make it to the airport in time without speeding? How much baking powder will I need if I triple this recipe? Does the shipping charge for ordering Product X online negate the sales tax savings? Should I buy down points on my mortgage?

Training our kids to be strong, quick mathematical thinkers is a gift that will serve them well all their lives. One of the reasons we’re such fans of Saxon Math is that it provides an excellent foundation for using math skills in both academic and real-life settings. The video instruction of the DIVE CDs makes learning that much easier, and we’re so grateful they were available for use with our children.

For this contest, we’d like to hear about the numbers that factor into your day, and perhaps how you’d like to see them change. Want the number on the scale to go down? The temperature to go up? Disappointed with the tax bill? Perhaps you’ve calculated your generations with an, “If each child has X number of kids…” scenario, or maybe you’re grateful to have correctly calculated how much of last year’s harvest would need to be “put up” to make it through until spring.

To enter the contest, simply write a “Comment” to the contest post on our Facebook Page letting us know about the numbers that are on your mind. The winner will receive a free DIVE Instructional Math CD (choice of levels). All entries must be received by Noon CST on Wednesday, April 21st , and the drawing will be that afternoon. One winner will be selected randomly from the number of responses received. The winner will be announced on Facebook, and he or she will receive a message from Finders-Keepers requesting shipping information. Please feel free to share the contest information with friends and family, but we do request that responses be limited to one per person.

And don’t forget,the Finders-Keepers website offers all of your favorite Saxon Math and DIVE products, and shipping is always FREE for orders of $50 or more.

Win a Free Shurley English Homeschool Kit! (Choice of Level) Just enter our Facebook Fan Contest.

Shurley Homeschool English
Our family discovered Shurley English after having wasted a lot of time and money on other materials that just weren’t getting the job done. I found myself having to re-teach the same concepts year after year, and my kids weren’t getting the big picture. English was a snooze for the kids and a snooze for the teacher, which I suppose would have been okay had they actually been learning.

When we started using Shurley, the clouds parted, the sun shone brightly, and birds started singing. (Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration.) My kids were learning! They were engaged! And they were actually really, really good at English!

I’ve learned a lot from my curriculum failures over the years. I now know which factors are non-negotiable, and which ones I can take or leave. So what’s important to you in school materials? Reasonable price? Ease of use? Rigorous academics? Adaptability to multi-level teaching? Something else?

For this contest, we’d like to know how you feel about these things. To enter, simply write a “Comment” to the contest post on our Facebook Page letting us know what’s important to you in a curriculum. The winner will receive a free Shurley English Homeschool Kit (choice of levels).

All entries must be received by Noon CST on Wednesday, April 14th, and the drawing will be that afternoon. One winner will be selected randomly from the number of responses received. The winner will be announced on Facebook, and he or she will receive a message from Finders-Keepers requesting shipping information. Please feel free to share the contest information with friends and family, but we do request that responses be limited to one per person.

And don’t forget,the Finders-Keepers website offers free Printable Shurley Extra Practice Sentences, free Printable Shurley Writing Templates, and a Shurley Scope & Sequence, as well as fantastic prices on Shurley English materials with FREE shipping on all orders of $50 or more.
