Morphology Junior Game

Great family game! This is a great game for families--it's fun and challenging for all ages. The rule adaptations from the "original" Morphology are well-designed to make play easier for the younger kids, but it keeps the quirky/crazy feel.

The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids

The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids

I LOVE the Sewing Fun for Kids book! It is a great resource for teaching beginning sewing skills. For those new to sewing, the spiral bound book is very informative and the thick, colorful pages are inviting. Sewing Fun for Kids gives many sewing terms and definitions, as well as thorough descriptions for sewing skills, and detailed instructions for the sewing projects. There are numerous activity pages throughout the book related to sewing that reinforce the terminology and concepts taught in the book. The book also includes nice plastic quilting tools and templates (located in the back of the book) which enabled me to give the book five stars even though the book is lacking a table of contents and/or index for finding sewing projects and activity pages. Sewing Fun for Kids is priced very well and highly recommended!

Deluxe Torso Anatomy Puzzle

Deluxe Torso Anatomy Puzzle

The 14 page book showing each piece and naming the parts found on it with a brief description of each organ and its function is helpful, but not thorough enough to fully utilize this puzzle. I’d suggest a good anatomy program or a helpful librarian. The parts seem to be well made, but I have not yet put it to the “kid test.” Some of the removable parts include: eyeball with muscles attached, lungs, kidneys, trachea/larynx with bronchi and a two-part heart with ventricles and atriums. The head is removable (really cool or really disgusting- you decide). Either way it allows for the examination of the four-part brain with brainstem, cerebellum and lobes. Also included is a spinal cord and vertebral column. There are too many parts to mention. This product (Deluxe Torso Anatomy Puzzle) would be a great addition to any home school conducting a formal (or informal) study of anatomy. Everyone should understand how the human body works in order to make well-informed health and medical decisions.

Video Review – A Day in the Life of a Timberdoodle Preschooler

The Filmmaker
We are just about ready to start our fourth year of homeschooling, and we are so excited that we found Timberdoodle! Our two-year-old BEGS for her “school” every day, even on weekends, and she likes to read her Timberdoodle catalog right before bedtime. We love how Timberdoodle makes the highest quality of Christian education both fun and affordable.
