My books

Here at Plain and not so Plain most everything is offered free for you to use.  I believe in sharing where I can.  I also avoid any advertising or pop up windows so that your experience here can be an enjoyable one.  Then how do I support my site, with no income from other companies?  I write books.  Here is what’s crazy…..I also offer my books free of charge on my site through various posts.  I don’t want money to stand in the way of someone who can’t afford something.

I believe in reaping and sowing. Give and it shall be given to you.  I look to God for all my income resources and He is faithful .

With all that said, if you want to support what we do here, you can purchase any of my books.  Again, if you can’t afford it, look around and you will find it somewhere on my site.

One of my greatest views is for  basic skills curriculum.  This is offered as a download to you free of charge. I have been approached by others who don’t have the resources to print it off inexpensively so now I am going to offer you the chance to buy a physical paperback copy through Amazon.  After uploading my complete curriculum, I set the price based on the minimum that Amazon allows me to do.  This is to make it as inexpensively as I can.  Again, if you can’t afford, download and print if off my site for free.

At Plain and not so Plain Academy we believe that learning at home should be an enjoyable time between you and your child.  Not something that they dread because they have hundreds of repetition problems to do over and over again.  Plain and not so Plain Academy’s approach to schooling is to  concentrate on the basics and then fill in with real life learning.

This approach to schooling is meant to take the stress and fear out of teaching your child at home.   We take all the extra complexities out of schooling and get back to the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic.    This allows the student extra time to pursue other areas of interest.
