The Home Learning Book Club, led by AHEM volunteer Amy Faeskorn, provides homeschooling families with a regular opportunity to read and discuss titles related to learning at home on a wide range of topics. Group members choose books based on the interests of those present at each meeting, and discussions are extremely open and relaxed. Pre-registration is not required. Anyone is welcome to attend, including those who have not read or finished the chosen book.
Our next selection is Deschooling Society by Ivan Illich. We will be meeting on Tuesday, June 2 in the café of the Chestnut Hill Wegmans at 7:30 p.m.
Mark your calendars: the sale will be held Friday, June 5, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Saturday, June 6, 9 a.m.–2 pm.
Take time to gear up for the next part of your educational adventure at Voyagers’ Annual Learning Resources Fair. This year’s sale is sure to have a great selection of items both donated and consigned by veteran homeschoolers!
As in the past, the Learning Resources Fair will be offering gently used educational materials, such as reference books, curricula, workbooks, fiction, nonfiction, musical instruments, educational DVDs, audio books, educational games and toys, and manipulatives -- a variety of learning resources you can use to educate your family, whatever your style.
If you are looking to clear off the shelves to make room for next year, consider donating your gently used materials to Voyagers. A signed receipt for donated goods received by Voyagers, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, will be available to all donors. Voyagers receives 100% of the sale price of your items.
If you are looking to recoup some of your cost on those expensive learning materials, consider consigning items with the Learning Resources Fair. Sellers determine their own prices and receive 70% of their total sales, with the remainder benefiting Voyagers. No need to register in order to participate! Just come in during our drop-off hours on Tuesday, June 2 from 10 am – 4 pm, Wednesday, June 3 1 pm – 4 pm and Thursday, June 5, 10 am – 6 pm. Labels and instructions can be found at http://public.voyagersinc.org/learningresourcesfair
The Learning Resources Fair cannot possibly happen without volunteers. Volunteers who sign up by the first drop-off day to work at least three hours receive the benefit of shopping before the sale opens to the public. Volunteers are needed to help with intake of consigned and donated items, tagging of donated items, setup, customer service, and cleanup. Children 10 and up may volunteer with a volunteering parent. Teens 14 and up are welcome to volunteer with or without a parent.
