Scholastic has put out educational magazines for years, but they were out of reach for many homeschool families. In the past, subscriptions were less than a dollar per issue, but only if you ordered in bulk, for a whole class of students. Order one subscription, and the cost skyrocketed.
There’s good news at last for homeschoolers. Scholastic is now offering their magazines at prices specific for our families. Some are as low as $8.35 for 32 issues!
Bulk orders are still even cheaper, so homeschool groups may want to combine family orders for lower prices. Still, these prices are much lower than they’ve been for single subscriptions and they’ll be delivered right to your home as often as weekly.
The magazines come in four age levels, with a variety of subjects. Some of the subjects include life skills, math, art, science, foreign language, cross-curricular and language arts, just to name a few.
Prices vary, with some magazines much cheaper than others. (Why is it that magazines for older children tend to be so much more expensive?)
