It’s that time of year where I would rather be bear foot then to have to wear socks and shoes. The only thing is my heals crack and are really dry. I don’t like to use those pumice stones, as I don’t like sitting there to scrub the dry stuff off my feet. I was really excited when the GREEMU by Devonian came up for review. I wanted to see just how it would work on my heels. GREEMU is an alternative to emu oil. It is a 100% natural blend of plant oils.
One of the things we really enjoy in our history class is to read different biographies about people from the past. YWAM Publishing has a nice variety of different biographies of both men and women of history. For this particular review we received the book Heroes of History – Christopher Columbus and a digital copy of the Unit Study Curriculum Guide. This book is for ages 10 and older.
One of the things that I have been pushing to work on with the the kids is writing. For me it has been hard to find something that works on both sentences and grammar. I was really excited to be able to review a curriculum called Writers In Residence by Apologia Educational Ministries. This is geared for children in grades 4 – 8.
Does your child have areas in math that they struggle in? Maybe you are looking for something that would be great for review. A+ Interactive Math now has Math Mini-Courses. For this particular review I was able to take a look at two different courses: Time and Money.
The Math Mini-Courses are affordable and allow you to a one year access. The price range on the course ranges from $9.99 to $19.99. This would be an ideal way to bridge any learning gap that your child may struggle in. The courses are online and are good for one year. Everything you need to teach is available at your finger tips. The program even does the grading for you so you don’t have to. The programs offer a very basic in-depth review to a more advanced level. There are a total of 20 courses.
Are you looking for a fun way to incorporate phonics, reading, spelling, and typing? Read, Write & Type by Talking Fingers Inc. is a program for children in grades K – 2. Children learn phonics, reading, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation, and even keyboarding. This is a great program for those learning to read or for those that are learning to read and write in English. For this review I received a one year subscription.
