SmartKidz Media Library for Homeschoolers {Schoolhouse Crew Review}


I like supplementing our schooling with educational shows, movies, and documentaries.  While going through unit studies, I plan ahead and usually can find what I need at our local library but not always. But when life gets busy and I need to put something on as a substitute  from our normal studies I can’t always plan ahead. This leaves me to search on the net and sift through a few of our subscription services. These services aren’t terrible but  there typically is  a lot of other content to sift through to find the educational material hoped for. Much of the content is not always family friendly or appropriate to browse through with my children around. We’ve happened across things on-line and through these services that have had ads that contained bad language, inappropriate images, and so on.  The ease of being able to move to unsafe destinations is simply unraveling and not something I want my children privy to.

WordBuildOnline {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

My seven year old second grader has started becoming more interested in reading. She’s grown out of early readers and has shown a desire to seek out more age appropriate materials.  I know that since she can sight read quite well that it is important to ensure that her reading comprehension grows along with it.  I wanted an approach to Vocabulary that would appeal to her learning style.  My preferred  features would be a no pressure, fun independent online program, that teaches a number of concepts at a pace that wouldn’t be rushed and could adjust to the skill level of the student. You can’t imagine my joy when I discovered that such a vocabulary program exist!

Apologia Field Trip Journal {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

Exploring Creation Field Trip Journal Review
Field Trips are something that most children enjoy. In getting out on the field, children are often completely engaged in their topic of study. Multiple senses being awakened increase every learning experience . Field Trips trump learning through a book or video because you just can’t substitute the real thing. In realizing the importance of these experiences, I’ve been planning many field trips to supplement our schooling. Our trips mainly revolve around personal interest and age appropriate educational experiences that I feel my son and daughter should witness first hand.

La La Logic {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

Logic an important skill for a child to learn. I’ve seen it done without any prompting but I feel practice should be offered. The ability to find reason in every situation is crucial. Logic in children can be seen in them taking something apart, seeing how it works, and putting it back together. These skills are important and likely be used throughout ones entire life whether it be for a job or specific situation. One way to teach these skills to young children is through puzzles, books, and reasoning games. I believe that with this skill new situations, experience, and challenges won’t be greeted with a give up attitude but with their head held high in confidence.

The Schoolhouse Crew Review Team has introduced and allowed me to review yet another fantastic curriculum choice for my children called La La Logic. This critical thinking based program is geared toward children age 3-6 years old. It’s most likely best suited as a supplemental preschool curriculum. It has the capability to enhance what you already may be teaching in gearing kids to boost their brain power and solve a plethora problems with ease.
