Jensen’s Grammar

August 31st, 2009 (No Comments)

My son tried Jensen’s Grammar and found it to be tedious and hard to understand.  I look for material that is good for self-study and this didn’t fit for us. Holly W. Oldtown, ID Why does Timberdoodle give Jensen’s Grammar a positive review? Click here to learn more.

We used Created For Work for devotion time with our boys. We loved it, the material led to many discussions and helped us toward our goal of raising Godly young men. I highly recommend this source. Pam Lynnwood, WA

Betty Lukens Small Felt Set

August 28th, 2009 (No Comments)

Betty Lukens Small Felt Set is FANTASTIC!  I have currently loaned my set to my daughter’s Awana teachers to use in Cubbies – and they love it too.  I think they’re going to ask the church to purchase a set of their own (possibly the large set).  Perhaps I read the “official” review wrong, but [...]

Paperback LightWedge

August 27th, 2009 (No Comments)

We purchased the Paperback LightWedge for our seven and a half year old son as soon as he became an independent reader. This has been an excellent investment. He would have nightly bible time in his bed using the lightwedge and also read his personal reading books. It is convenient, long lasting, and easy to [...]

Bloco Marine Creatures

August 26th, 2009 (No Comments)

These foam puzzles are great.  I had to assist some of my younger kids with the directions but they loved it.  It was a lot of fun to use Bloco Marine Creatures for “Art time” in our schooling.  I think they are the neatest product I have ever seen. Becky Melrose, Florida

Milestones in Science

August 25th, 2009 (No Comments)

My 13 year old son was extremely bored with history but he loves experiments so when I saw Milestones in Science I bought it right away because it included 100 experiments.  Now he is getting the benefit of studying the history of inventors and recreating some of their experiments.  It’s the only subject he can’t [...]

Integrated Physics & Chemistry

August 22nd, 2009 (No Comments)

My kids have always enjoyed Tiner’s books, so we decided to try Integrated Physics & Chemistry 2 years ago, but we were sadly disappointed.  The first two or so chapters were very interesting, but it began to go downhill until at the end, my 10th and 11th grade children complained that it seemed that the [...]

Learn to Write the Novel Way

August 21st, 2009 (No Comments)

I recommend Learn to Write the Novel Way for anyone who has a writer in their family.  My daughter would write “stories” in her spare time.  When she got into high school and wanted to seriously write a book and didn’t know how to start,  I ordered this product.  She worked through it and started [...]

Language Lessons for the Very Young

August 20th, 2009 (No Comments)

I was searching for a language arts program to meet the needs of a unique child.  My child struggles with her left-handedness.  Anything requiring too many lines of writing in small spaces would leave us both nearly in tears.  But she is also a child who loves poetry and the beauty of language.  I hesitated [...]
