Melissa says, “Overall, I enjoyed Economics for Everybody and would recommend it… Although, I watched several lessons with my middle schoolers and they were a bit lost. I think the content would better serve high school or upper level students.” Read the rest of her review at Reflections from Drywood Creek.
Heather says, “One of my favorite picks… is the Draw Patterns with Barroux Kit, a colorful, engaging book of essential skills disguised as a coloring book with all the bells and whistles.” Read the rest of her review at To Sow a Seed.
Jennifer says, “I took three years of Latin in high school and loved it. I also took Greek for a couple of semesters in college and thoroughly enjoyed that as well. But when it came time to pick a language to study with my own homeschooled children, I opted for… Spanish. Here in Texas, opportunities to converse in Spanish abound. Classical languages? Not so much. Even so, I haven’t wanted to abandon my Latin and Greek roots completely. Thankfully, vocabulary-building curricula such as The Critical Thinking Company’s Word Roots are ready to stand in the gap.” Read the rest of […]
Kimberly says, “One thing I have concentrated on this year is making our lessons fun. I can do that when I have awesome tools like Tiggly Math! This is a concept that uses math toys and your tablet. Kids get to have fun while they learn and I love this part of Tiggly Math . My kids warmed right up to this app and it has been a staple in our homeschooling curriculum for preschoolers. Another way to make lessons fun is by using Tiggly Words. Teaching your child to read is a big responsibility. My kids agree that Tiggly […]
Cathy says, “I highly recommend this product for everyone that is interested in teaching economics to their highschooler and would like it to be from a Christian perspective! My 10 year old got a lot of useful information from it. There are 3 lessons that are mentioned for an older audience, but he took away some valuable insights.” Read the rest of her review at Growing in God’s Grace.
Tawnee says, “…when we were given the opportunity to check out New Ravensburger XXL Children’s Globe 180-Piece Puzzleball we thought that would be great. Quite frankly, a globe for use in our homeschool was on my wish list so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give this a try. I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical as to whether it would be usable after it was made but I have been pleasantly surprised by its functionality.” Read the rest of her review at Adventures in Homeschooling.
Kimberly says, “Our favorite tool to use in homeschooling that helps us also get hands on is the KidCoder: Web Design Online Course. This is a course for 4th to 12th grade students that helps students learn how to build their own websites. Your kids will learn everything from HTML to graphics. I love everything my kids have learned. I also love the hands-on approach and how they have to get in there and learn.” Read the rest of her review at Natural Beach Living.
Monica says, “If your child enjoys sleuth work, he may enjoy Word Roots. On the other hand, if you have a straightforward learner, who prefers more explanation, this may not work.” Read the rest of her review at Chocolate Covered Boy Joy.
Jennifer says, “…we have been s-l-o-w-l-y working our way through the award-winning James Madison Critical Thinking Course this semester. This course has the same great quality we’ve come to expect from books published by the Critical Thinking Press, but it’s scope is more ambitious than many of their other titles we’ve used in the past.” Read the rest of her review at The Flanders Family Website.
Kimberly says, “Uncle Sam and You Curriculum is an excellent independent learning course or something you can do with the whole family. There are even 30 optional lessons on America’s patriotic holidays that you could use as additional lessons. My kids loved these lessons too.” Read the rest of her review at Natural Beach Living.
