Vegas Kids Zone is dedicated to getting discounts for subscribers! Sign up for the weekly newsletter for the latest deals, field trips and meetups!

UPDATE August/September 2021!  I am working on some great deals and will keep you informed on the latest in the weekly newsletter.

We all need a break from all that’s happening, both socially and financially. I’m teaming up with a few local and national companies each week to bring subscribers deals. This year has been hard enough! But a good deal and some fun activities can put a smile on your face and, more importantly, your child’s face. If you are looking for things to do around the valley, each week I scour all the schedules of cool places and businesses to find the Top 10 Things to do in Las Vegas This Week and this week’s best deals on Amazon for kids and parents!  Let’s get started!

Upcoming Events

We’ve moved park day inside to the Centennial Hills Library Homeschool Resource Room since it’s so dern hot. If you are a new homeschooler or new to the area, come on out and say hi! Us parents chill out in the homeschool resource room while the kids play on the 20+ computers in the resource room or with the crafts we bring.  I’ll also have NOIs on hand to fill out along with educational plans. (This week I can’t be there but a few of our regulars will be!)

AUGUST 18! Golf is coming back!

 

Local Deals

Assessments and Curriculum Deals

Felicia Wright is a professional educator that has transitioned to homeschool teacher (one of our favorites!) and trained to give your child a thorough assessment at any level.

NEW! If you need to get an assessment, or you (like me!) love a good overall assessment each year, I have an incredible resource we’ve used to keep us on track in our homeschool this past year. Felicia Wright is a professional educator and amazing teacher we have worked with who really cares about kids. She got my son, who is on the spectrum, to race to the car to get to her class and write pages for her (For me? He begrudgingly writes a sentence, and it’s usually not very positive!).

She is offering $25 off with code THEHOMESCHOOLCAFE! The Education Assessment with a consult call includes an hour with Mrs. Wright to go over your child’s results and you can ask all your burning questions! We hired her when we first started homeschooling and it helped me gain insight into what they needed, set up our first year to be a success and not waste more money on curriculum that didn’t work. You know how that goes!

 

NEW! Funcation Academy is offering 18% off its full project-based curriculum with live teacher support for The Homeschool Café readers!

We signed up for Funcation Academy when I had just started homeschooling. The twins loved it because they were able to connect with other kids in the homeroom, do their work independently, check in with teachers and then circle back to talk to their friends around the country in the Funcation Academy clubs and other social opportunities.

I loved it so much I reached out and talked to Amy Scott, the founder of Funcation Academy. I felt Amy Scott as a mother when she said this right here.

“I’m a fairly educated person, but I can’t teach 9th grade algebra,” Scott said. “It’s definitely beneficial to have the support, wherever you can.”

And then this when we talked about how hard it can be as a homeschool mom when you struggle with teaching them something they are struggling with.

“They are really not struggling,” she said, “they are learning.”

Kids can also earn Funbucks that they can spend on approved items in the online store. Everything ships through Amazon. Parents can also put parameters on the shop to know what their child is buying and encourage them as they learn about finances. There are many opportunities to socialize, from the homeroom to the extra fun clubs.

“You get to use whatever features and services you see fit that we provide,” Scott said.

Once you have completed the free assessment, you will receive a special code from Funcation Academy to get this full curriculum with teacher support for under $40 per child! The free assessment really helped us get a better understanding of where we needed to focus and what they had mastered.
