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.
Jennifer says, “I’ve been using Easy Grammar to teach grammar for more than two decades, but it wasn’t until four years ago (just before we graduated our fifth) that I discovered the Easy Grammar Ultimate Series.” Read the rest of her review at the Flanders Family Website.
Monica says, “I jumped at the chance to review the Fallacy Detective because I live with the Great Debators, otherwise known as my two sons. All of a sudden, I have gone from knowing everything to not very much. Well, we may as well put that faulty reasoning to the test.” Read the rest of her review at Chocolate-Covered Boy Joy.
Jennifer says, “I’ll admit I was a little skeptical when I first cracked open The Amazing Dr. Ransom’s Bestiary of Adorable Fallacies. I’d taught a logic class for a local co-op several years earlier, and I’d taken a couple of critical thinking classes myself even further back than that, and this book didn’t look very “scholarly” to me. It certainly wasn’t like any of the texts I’d used in the past.” Read the rest of her review at The Flanders Family Website.
MaryEllen says, “When Timberdoodle sent us the Circuit Maze from Thinkfun, I was originally hoping that the kids’ grandpa would be able to teach them about electricity and play the game with them… Fast forward several months and the game had still not been used. We kept forgetting to take it to grandpa’s house, and time with daddy is usually spent doing outdoorsy stuff like soccer or basketball. So once again, mommy braved learning something new, and this time I was successful! All this time I had put it off because I was too intimidated, but it wasn’t really that […]
Jennifer says, “We started using a history curriculum this past summer that is a departure from our normal “living books” approach. The America the Beautiful series… definitely falls into the “textbook” category, but my elementary-aged children have thoroughly enjoyed studying it.” Read the rest of her review at The Flanders Family Website.
