Tiny Traveler board book series: Japan and Italy

small-logo

 

The Tiny Traveler by Misti Kenison is a series of books created with children ages 0-3 years old in mind. This series takes the basic concepts of nature and numbers and ties those in with world travel! It’s a clever way to introduce children to countries and their cultures. It’s a great series to get a jump start on Geography! Even though this series is meant for younger children, my five year old son enjoys looking and learning through these books about far off places that we dream of one day visiting.

Learning Resources – Tumble Trax Magnetic Marble Run {Review}

DSCN4015
The Tumble Trax Magnetic Marble Run is useful learning tool for at home or in the classroom. I enjoy having my kids play with this set because I know that they are practicing their engineering and problem solving skills in a fun hands-on way. The brightly colored set offers enough pieces to get really creative. My kids think it’s really cool seeing that when adjusting the parts in certain ways they control not only the direction in which the marbles fall but also the speed the marble goes when reaching the intended destination!

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

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}

smartkidz

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.
