Here’s how we play Buzzword. We sit in the family room and take turns reading the cards while everyone guesses from the clues. It’s super fun and casual and that’s exactly the type of game we need when we are too tired to play a table game with the kids. They love it and so […]


BOB Books

While we borrowed some of these from our local library, our kids liked them so much that we eventually bought three sets.   Our second child needed a little more phonics reinforcement and these did the trick and were fun at the same time.  I’d highly recommend them.

Kumon Money Series with Play Money

September 23rd, 2010 (No Comments)

Quite good I have found the Kumon series of workbooks to be useful for all of my children who have used them.  The books dealing with fine motor skills are excellent; some of the pages can be done by young children with practically no assistance (such as in the cutting, tracing, and maze books), while […]

A great tool for our four boys ages 6 – 13 This has been a great tool for our four boys ages 6 – 13. They spent hours working on it and have memorized many countries that were new to them. They have all been asking to get it out again. Some pieces are very […]

They make GREAT gifts!! This series of Mennonite readers is wonderful!!  Plenty of challenging words in an interesting format means both my daughter and I, as her teacher, were satisfied.  I have bought several books in this series, and will continue to do so!!!  They also make GREAT gifts!

Sequential Spelling

We have used Sequential Spelling now for 18 months and I cannot say enough things about how much improvement I have seen in my son’s spelling.  He is dyslexic and spelling has always been so difficult for him.  Not anymore!  His writing used to be full of errors, now there are very few. But the […]

The following is a guest review from Some days, I am an amazing, inspired mom. And the kids all get along and play intense strategy games with educational value while working together around the beautiful coffee table I gave them for games and eating brownies… Ok, So there were no brownies, only pretzels. And, […]


Lots of Science Fun

September 9th, 2010 (No Comments)

This is an excellent science kit for young ones. I liked how durable and unbreakable the test tubes were. The experiments were fun and most of them have quick reactions, which makes them exciting. I love that they give you enough materials to do the experiments over and over. This has been played with for […]

A Reason for Handwriting

September 8th, 2010 (No Comments)

Excellent product with a couple of small downsides I used A Reason for Writing during this past school year for my sons, ages 6 and 8. I loved the concept of the Bible verses. I loved that the lessons were brief. My boys have a short attention span. I was using book A for my […]
