All American History

June 30th, 2010 (No Comments)

I appreciate that this history curriculum(All American History) was more detailed than the text I used when I was a young boy, thus I learned things while teachings my children that I did not know. At the same time some of the details were about things that were too trivial and thus should have been […]

Wedgits

June 29th, 2010 (No Comments)

I purchased Wedgits years ago from Timberdoodle. From an educator’s point of view, this is definitely the best toy I’ve ever purchased. Age doesn’t matter with these things!! My husband and I enjoy them as much as my children (ages 3-12) do! I took them to our church for our AWANA program and it occupied […]

Rolit Junior

June 25th, 2010 (No Comments)

This game (Rolit Junior) has become a favorite because of its wide age appeal. While challenging enough to keep older children constantly strategizing, it is simple enough to captivate the little players, too. Highly recommended! Anna Washington

I am so excited to finally get these puzzles! I have been looking at them for a long time, and finally decided to make the plunge and buy the set, and I am so thrilled! As soon as they arrived, I popped open the box and jumped right in on the Africa puzzle. I love […]

Developing the Early Learner

June 22nd, 2010 (No Comments)

These books are pretty good. They’re black and white, so they aren’t visually interesting, but most of the exercises are pretty good. They’re best for students who are ready to ‘do school’ with formal seat work but who aren’t ready to write well. Amy Texas

The Never-Bored Kid Books Ages 4-5

June 21st, 2010 (No Comments)

It’s FUN SCHOOL! I prefer this series (Never Bored) over all the other cut/paste/trace/color/sequence/etc. books we’ve tried. The title doesn’t look or sound like school, but it covers those basic skills. My daughter did these on her own when ever she wanted to, and they lasted through a year plus. A must have!

miniLUK Starter Pack

June 18th, 2010 (No Comments)

I ordered the 1st grade curriculum and when I saw that it came with the MiniLUK I honestly didn’t know what to think.  What I did think was that my son was going to have trouble with it and probably not like it.  Boy, was I wrong.  I had opened it up to figure it […]

PrismaColor Pencils

June 15th, 2010 (No Comments)

We have used PrismaColor in the past, and everytime I put together my ‘ideal’ order with Timberdoodle, (i.e. make my dream list before going over it with the budget in mind), and I mean EVERY time, at least one set of Prismacolor is on the list, when I really only NEED history or English or […]

Color Shifting Illusions Thinking Putty

June 14th, 2010 (No Comments)

I ordered Thinking Putty for myself. I have  A.D.D and wanted to see how well it might help me center. I LOVE it. I’ve noticed that I  WANT to use it (unlike many other fidgets) and that I can do enough things to keep it from getting boring. As a fidget it is wonderful. I […]

Sing The Word: Great in Counsel and Mighty In Deed

June 11th, 2010 (No Comments)

With a background in music education I strongly believe in the power of music to aid memorization. I was skeptical about the ‘Sing the Word’ CD series prior to purchasing one out of concern for the quality of the music and recordings. I am happy to say that our family has been very pleased with […]
