Interested in obtaining 41 top quality free education / Homeschool items (ebooks) (Limited time) grab them here.  I know they're great products because I created them and the rave reviews are there for all to see.  Share with your friends and homeschool groups.  By the end of this weekend I may even more.

Donnette Davis, that's me.   I'm married to Craig Fry, have a full time job in law, mama to 6 humans, 5 canines and 4 felines, and wife to one sports-crazy elite athlete manager who tolerates my need for working 18-20 hours a say, maintaining various websites, blogs, social media campaigns and a published author.

I', also a great fan of helping people when I can if I cam, and I love to share great deals.  After all who couldn't do with sharing a few $ every month?  I sure count my pennies.

I love Teachers Pay Teachers, Paul is Hand on and very fair and I am honored to work with them.   Some of my recent over 200 products there include the following below.   I try to work according to themes.  Next week will be explosive so for four day starting today I am having a sale.   Out with the old, in the with new (not literally of course) :)

Teachers Pay Teachers – 27830 Free Educational Downloads « St Aiden's Homeschool Blog

From Paul Edelman, founder of TPT

This is our 100th 10 Free Downloads newsletter which means we’ve highlighted 1,000 great free downloads to help make your teaching life easier every week. To celebrate, I came up with a contest with $1,000 in prizes plus a $1,000 bonus for your favorite plus another $1,000 for our favorite. I guess that makes it $3,000 total!
The contest is to redesign our ‘It’s About Time’ banner, the one you see where we used to show ads. Here it is:
Your job is to make it even better. You can keep the same copy or create your own while maintaining the same or similar idea. The only acceptable size is 300×250 and you can post up to 3. Voting will end next Saturday, April 28th at Midnight PST. Submissions and voting happen on our Facebook Fan Page starting today. Here’s how:

The 10 banners who get the most LIKES on our Fan Page win $100 each and the one who gets the most LIKES wins a $1,000 bonus. We’ll then choose our favorite to place on the site and award that creator $1,000. We’ll reach out to all winners via FB to organize prize payouts. Spread the word on your blogs and have fun!
