I have to say, I have looked through most of these and will likely go back and get a few more! I'm very happy with the majority of my purchases so far. :)
We are doing Tapestry of Grace this year as a family so the outline map book is going to be great! I need some maps to work with instead of hunting for free downloads online. And the math puzzle book will be great reinforcement for my 7th and 4th graders, but especially for the 7th grader who will be working on the basics this year in order to prepare for pre-algebra next year. And those math comics? My older boys are going to just love those!
If you've placed a dollar deals order, what have you picked up? Happy schooling!
