I'm interested and will know what I have left after tonight's local HS swap sale.  I missed out on the last one due to an out-of-state trip.

I am intrested, I went through my books already. I don't know how long this game will last, but I will be out of town September 20-27 ! I do not have a lap top and will not be able to check in that week. Also if it ends that week, I won't be able to mail out until after the 27th, if that is a problem let me know and I will not join this game.

 

Stacey here is some of the books I am looking for.

I am looking for Christian Liberty Press books.

I am also looking for reading books grade 3 level that boys would like. Always art supplys, art books.

Hi everyone,  I would love to join in this time!  Last time I arrived too late and just had to watch the fun.  Boy was that a bummer!!!

I am trying to have more fun this year!!  I do want to do more hands on stuff with the kids.  So I will be looking for games and  lapbook or unit study ideas and supplies,  We are still working on North American History.  

I am looking forward to a little more routine around here.  Blessings, Carrie

they come to me. I then forward them to our Game Mod who holds them to be returned to each player upon the successful completion of their portion of the swap.

I am interested depending on how soon it would start/end. I probably need to be out of town for early Sept. I would also need to go through and see what I have to trade. I'll watch to see if the dates will work for me. Thanks! Dawn

We sorted through a lot of materials this summer, so I'd be in again. The spring swap was a lot of fun! We'll be gone Labor Day weekend but otherwise will be available any time in the next few weeks.

I would be interested. I am looking for kindergarten materials, preferably Christian-based like Abeka. I've got a lot of stuff to go through, I picked up quite a bit at our local FOL sale a few weeks ago and some of it is stuff we won't need for several years yet so I am willing to pass it along to someone who needs it now.

Okay I didn't post what I am looking for so I'll put this out there in case any one is going through stuff also.  I'm looking for history and hands-on stuff and anything for the older grades 9th and above.  (I know slim chance but I thought I'd throw it out there.)  Thanks for posting what you are thinking about I'm finding stuff!!  YEAH!!!! MY dh is so excited this is coming up again!

I will probably join in again this time.  I would like non-fiction books on 3rd grade reading level or below.  We would love any resources related to Africa or about animals.  Someone in a previous swap posted some wonderful file folder games and we would love to have something like that again.  We also could use art supplies and preschool materials.
