Young children are almost always hands-on learners. That is why your child picks up and touches everything. It may look destructive, but it is how God has programmed him to learn. And because at this age your child will learn more easily using this preferred learning style, we recommend adding a hands-on thinking program to any written curriculum, to add balance and success. bambinoLUK is intended to maximize your child’s learning. It contains one easy-to-operate controller with six tiles housed in a transparent case and a number of different workbook sets targeting memorization, concentration, visual perception, logical thinking, linguistic skills, […]
Laura says, “The Wikki Stix were a lot of fun and introduced a fantastic sensory aspect to learning the letters. I am very impressed with the durability of the Wikkies and we will incorporate them into our preschool program.” Read the rest of her review at Homeschooling Five.
Jess says, “…one of my favorite things about Timberdoodle curriculum is that it is FUN and the girls don’t necessarily see it as “doing schoolwork.” Wikki Stix Alphabet totally fits into that category! The girls love it and choose it during free play time, in addition to when we work it into school time.” Read the rest of her review at Educating Everywhere.
Dana says, “Tiny Polka Dot is perfect for children ages 3-8 (and older) and packs a lot of fun and learning into one little box of cards. We instantly fell in love with the bright colors, high-quality cards, and easy to follow instructions.” Read the rest of her review at The Art Kit.
Jennifer says, “My daughter has really enjoyed working through this book. Some of the more challenging patterns kind of frustrated her but pushed her to see that whatever she practices enough is possible. I definitely would recommend this coloring book to others.” Read the rest of her review at Homeschool Happenings.
As a foster family with little ones 1-4 years old, devotion time has radically changed from previous years, when we were a family of grown ups! Our morning devotion routine starts with gathering the family and getting the little ones seated quietly on the couch. Honestly, this is probably the most difficult part! Some mornings are finally almost effortless, but some mornings way more time is spent on obedience than on devotions. Not to worry, this is both normal and extraordinarily valuable for the children. In fact, the toddlers probably benefit more from that training than from the actual contents […]
Jennifer says, “Physics 101 did not disappoint. Although I planned to use this introductory course for my high schoolers (it’s part of Timberdoodle’s 10th Grade Curriculum Set), my younger kids quickly became engrossed in the video lessons, as well. So did I. I learned stuff in this course I never knew before — despite the fact I’d taken three years of physics in high school and college. That’s because Wes Olson, the host of the 101 Series, is a master at asking intelligent questions, then answering them with easy-to-follow explanations.” Read the rest of her review at The Flanders Family […]
Suzanna says, “I have two sons doing high school chemistry this year. This year I have a son in 9th grade and one in 11th so one of them is using Integrated Physics and Chemistry and one of them is using Jay Wile’s Discovering Design with Chemistry. So when Timberdoodle offered me a copy of Chemistry 101 in exchange for a review I jumped at the chance. I knew that having a teacher that’s passionate about the subject matter would make Chemistry come alive for them.” Read the rest of her review at Wonder-filled Days.
Renee didn’t love Wordsmithy. She shares her honest thoughts on Little Earthling Blog. She says, “This book does indeed cover seven topics to help with writing. There is no homework, so for the right student, this just might be a great choice.”
Why don’t we add a Bible portion to our curriculum? From the time our children could sit in our laps, family devotion was a mainstay in our home, so teaching Bible to our children was paramount. But for too many families the sum total of Bible instruction for their children is Bible workbooks that are little more than read-and-regurgitate exercises, and that alarms me. Yes, I did want children to know the facts of the Bible – who killed a giant with a small stone; who was thrown into a lion’s den; and who changed water into wine, and The […]
