In-Store Events

Our 2016 In-Store Events schedule is listed below.

Some of our In-Store Events are free of charge. However, most (e.g. our Workshops) take place in our basement classroom where seating is limited. For these, pre-registration with a non-refundable reservation fee is required (good for up to two immediate family members) on a first-come, first-served basis. Except where noted below, Workshop attendees will be given a $5 credit toward any purchase made the evening of the Workshop.

All Workshops begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. and last 1 - 2 hours, although we're happy to stay until all questions have been addressed. We ask Workshop attendees to arrive 15 minutes early so we can get everyone checked-in and start each Workshop on time. CEU documentation is available on request. Call today to register! 763-241-HOME (4663)

Please carefully note below which of these listed events require pre-registration. Please DO NOT just show up for events which require pre-registration as it is likely there will not be room for you to attend.

Sorry - child care is not provided at any of our In-Store Events, although nursing infants are fine.

2016 Event Schedule

  • Tuesday, February 16th - The Logic of English Mini-Training Workshop
    Denise Eide (Logic of English)
    Non-refundable registration fee: $15 (includes same-night $5 store credit)

    Learn the tools needed to teach reading and spelling effectively. In this two-hour workshop, your understanding of English will be transformed! Award-winning author Denise Eide will reveal tools that explain 98% of English words. No longer will you need to tell your children “that is an exception” when they misread or misspell a word. You will learn:

    • The rule that explains the two sounds for C in “accent”
    • Three of the nine reasons for a Silent Final E.
    • Why we drop the Silent Final E in “servicing” but not in “serviceable”
    • Why many math- and science-minded kids struggle with reading and spelling - and why this reflects their gifts, not their shortcomings.

    Current Logic of English users will also benefit from this presentation and have an opportunity to perfect their teaching of Spelling Analysis.

    Ray Notgrass (Notgrass Company)
    Non-refundable registration fee: $10.00 (includes same-night $5 store credit)

    It's so obvious that we often miss it. People who follow Jesus have been changing the world for good for almost two thousand years. As Jesus changes us and changes our relationship with God, He leads us to live differently and to see the world and other people differently. Ray Notgrass surveys how people following the way of Christ have impacted the world's perceptions of morality, the value of children, business, labor, helping the poor, politics, and other areas of human society. This would be a great workshop for both you and your 9th grade or older teen.

This is a free event with no pre-registration required.

    Non-refundable registration fee: $10.00 (includes same-night $5 store credit)

    The Math Games Workshop is now at a new level. Many of you have said that you need to actually play the games to be able to teach them to your family at home. So, this is it. We’ll cover the why’s and how’s of using games to bring math to life and increase understanding in students. Then we’ll dive into a time of learning and playing math games that include everything from understanding number basics, getting the facts straight, the base-ten system, and numeric operations. Space will be somewhat more limited since we’ll have tables set up for our game time. Let’s play!

  • Tuesday, November 15th - Struggling Learners Workshop
    Shelley Jo Moyer
    Non-refundable registration fee: $10.00 (includes same-night $5 store credit)

    Homeschooling has its challenges. When you add a struggling learner, it can become a discouragement and cause you to ask the question, "Can I do this?" This workshop will encourage, educate and give practical ideas. It is designed to let parents know they are not alone, show them how to break down school for their child, and provide recommendations on different types of curriculum that may help.

    Shelley Jo Moyer is a mom of five with a degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology who has homeschooled for 17 years. She has experience teaching in her home to children with mild learning glitches and with severe dyslexia. Using her own creative ideas and those gleaned from others, she has created a way to educate and embrace the challenges that come with struggling learners.
