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.

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.

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
tosftjournal
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.
