Calling All Homeschoolers - Free Subscription to Discovery Education Streaming Plus

I wanted to share some exciting news for my homeschool friends.  Homeschool Buyers Co-Op is giving away a FREE subscription to Discovery Education Streaming Plus to every homeschooler for the summer.  That's right, from June 1st to August 31st, 2015, you can stream over  12,300 full length educational videos.  Not to mention tons of other educational resources including games, interactive, images, and more.  What a great way to learn all summer long.  This opportunity would usually cost you $375.00 for a year subscription.

I have not reviewed this free service, I signed up today for my free subscription and I'm really excited to try it out. Get your free trial here.  The subscription is totally free for homeschoolers till August 31, 2015.  No credit card needed.
