CursiveLogic {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

toscursivelog

I learned cursive as a child and still use it to this very day.  I always find putting pen to paper to help me sort out my thoughts a lot easier than on an electric device. In fact, studies have shown that writing by hand helps students to process information better and recall information much more easily.  I feel it’s important for everyone to be able to read and write cursive. It helps with fine motor skills and sharpens ones mind in so many amazing ways. In knowing all of the benefits cursive provides, I have found it quite important to teach both of my children this skill and am happy homeschooling provides me the freedom to do so.

In being a member of the Schoolhouse Crew Review team, I was introduced to CursiveLogic, a penmanship curriculum that introduces learning cursive in a whole new way. I was sent the single top-spiral bound CursiveLogic Workbook  to share my experience with while using it with my daughter. In having attempted a previous method and not getting very far, this new attempt of learning cursive shows great promise.

Learning Resources – Create-a-Maze {Review & Giveaway!}

marblemaze1
My children ages 7 and 4 enjoy mazes quite a bit. I like mazes too because I know in solving or creating our own that we are challenging our mind in new ways and boosting critical thinking skills. My children’s experience with mazes has mainly been with those strictly found in activity books and in games on the computer. Though recently, they were given a hands on approach to mazes. Many thanks to Learning Resources for the opportunity to share our experiences with their latest educational game Create-a Maze.
