August 30th, 2010 (No Comments)

My little ones have been burning up a lot of extra energy with this puppy, which is a very good thing as we have been very snow-bound all winter!  Our youngest named it “Rover” (how original!) and it has been dragged and loved on all over the house. It is definitely lots of fun for [...]

Christian Kids Explore Physics

August 27th, 2010 (No Comments)

I was so pleased to find a physics text geared for an age range instead of a narrow grade level–particularly for this younger age range. I have a gifted child who has never fit the standard scope and sequence.  He really wanted to study physics, but most books are for older middle school and have [...]

Pathway Readers 5th Grade

August 26th, 2010 (No Comments)

Pathway Readers are by far my favorite way to teach reading skills while at the same time discussing all the true-to-life character dilemmas faced by all children growing up in close-knit families today.  The children portrayed in the readers are real kids, not perfect by any means, but they demonstrate a teachable spirit when corrected, [...]

August 23rd, 2010 (No Comments)

We received our Bubber three days ago. It has already provided HOURS of hassle-free entertainment for our boys, aged 9 and 6. They say it’s like cotton candy and Delta sand mixed. I’m glad to say it isn’t near the mess that Delta sand is..or cotton candy for that matter I find it irresistible, as [...]

Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 3

August 20th, 2010 (No Comments)

Evan Moor Daily 6 Trait Writing- I just found this style of writing instruction to be all breadth and no depth. After 3 or 4 years with trait based writing, I suppose students can turn out simple compositions which would go over well on state writing tests, such as our own FCAT. The trait based [...]

Key To Algebra

August 17th, 2010 (No Comments)

The Key To Math series has been perfect for my son who has wanted to learn math mostly on his own. He talks about “what they are teaching me” even though all he has is workbooks. The only thing I’ve had to do is check his work, and the answer keys make that task very [...]

K’nex Intro to Simple Machines: Gears

August 16th, 2010 (No Comments)

I bought my 6.5 year old son this K’Nex set because I wanted a specific way to challenge him in new engineering and building methods.  He spends many hours with Legos during the day, but I would like his mind to be more well rounded.  This suited him perfectly.  I assigned one project at a [...]
