La La Logic {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

lalalogtos
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.

First Start Reading by Memoria Press {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

I learned early on that my two children have very different learning styles. While my daughter doesn’t tend to favor repetition or work book approaches, my son tends to prefer it. She always needs a lot of interaction to keep her occupied and change to happen quite frequently. He on the other hand tends to prefer knowing what to expect next. Too much change to soon often frustrates him. If something is very busy he tends to get distracted and misses the point of the lesson. In realizing this, I knew that how my daughter learned to read would not be the same for my son.

When the opportunity arose through the Schoolhouse Crew Review Team to review a classical curriculum called First Start Reading by Memoria Press I jumped at the opportunity. What drew me the most to this curriculum was the fact that not only would my son be mastering his phonics but would also be improving his handwriting and early reading skills all together.

GPA Learn {School House Crew Review}

My son and daughter ages 4 and 6 years old take very well to using the computer. In knowing that, I’ve typically used computer time as something fun to do. It’s a great reward for doing well in their schooling and in their daily chores. I’ve learned however, to be selective in where and how they spend their computer time. I want them to have fun but also still be learning as they play. I’ll admit that sometimes with so many choices out there it can be hard to know which on-line curriculum and games are worth pursing for this purpose.

When the opportunity to review GPALOVEMATH by GPA LEARN through the Schoolhouse Crew Review Team came up I knew I had to apply for it. As a parent, I felt it was worth pursing. The helpful info-graphic and the fun character videos pretty much sealed my decisions. I felt my children would like it for many reasons and I was right in that assumption!

Visual Learning Systems: Digital Science Online {Schoolhouse Crew Review }

vsciencepin
Science is one of the most loved school subjects by my children. It’s interesting, hands-on, and exciting. In learning by observation and through experiments they are getting answers to the hows and whys of how things work. Science gives one the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills, pursue scientific interest further, and make informative decisions. In understanding the importance of science and its benefits, I’m more than delighted to have discovered Visual Learning Systems, an educational science publisher that offers top-quality visual curriculum for grades Primary all the way through High-school.

As part of the Schoolhouse Crew Review team, I’ve been given the opportunity to share my thoughts upon Visual Learning Systems Digital Science Online: Elementary Edition (Grades K-5) curriculum (Digital Science Online: Secondary Edition (Grades 6-12) is also available). I’d been on the look out for science curriculum to use during the 2015-2016 school year that I could make work for both my children. I was having a hard time deciding, weighing many pros and cons. I’ll admit that this review opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. This particular edition includes primary as well as elementary science which works perfectly for my 4 and 6 year old.

Egglo Entertainment {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

Easter is only a month away! During the month of March, I start gathering goodies for my son and daughter to celebrate this holiday. While they really love the fun side of Easter full of bunnies, chicks, candies, baskets, and prizes, I’m at odds in hoping they don’t miss the real reason why we celebrate this day as Christians. One way I try to push away from secular culture is to fill their baskets full of fun Christian themed music albums, movies, books, and things that point to Jesus. However, I’m still at odds feeling like there needed to be something more that would leave lasting memories & spiritual growth year after year.
