One of the things my daughter has struggled with in the past was reading. She has really blossomed in hear reading the past 6 months. Reading Kingdom has been a great asset to my daughter since we have started reviewing it. Reading Kingdom Online is an online programs that teaches children ages 4 – 10 years how to read and write to a third grade level. Reading Kingdom uses Dr. Marion Blanks Six Skill Integrated Method: Sequencing, Motor Skills, Sounds, Meaning, Grammar, and Reading Comprehension.
Do you have a child that wants to learn a foreign language? Middlebury Interactive Languages teaches kids in grades K – 12 Chinese, German, Spanish, and French. My daughter has been asking for a year now to learn Chinese. I knew it would be challenging but I never realized just how much fun it would be. For this review we did the K – 2 Chinese Courses. In this specific course the child is learning Mandarin Chinese.
I love game nights with my family. They bring some of the best memories, smiles and laughter. We had the chance to review two really fun and amazing games: Wonky: The Crazy Cubes Card Game and Tapple: Fast Word Fun For Everyone. Both of these games are made by USAopoly. USAopoly sure does know how to bring the fun into gaming!
Unit studies can come in handy when you want to study something specific. It’s nice to be able to incorporate different subjects while your study one topic. For this review we received a physcial copy of the book HEROES OF HISTORY – Davy Crockett: Ever Westward, and a Unit Study Curriculum Guide by YWAM Publishing.
Heroes of History are very interesting biographies that bring history to life. The stories are true stories about men and woman who changed the course of history. The stories are in a narrative format that discuss history, geography, government, and science topics. Davy Crockett is suggested for ages 10 and older.
Lately I seem to find myself looking for worksheets for review for the kids, more so my son as we learn skills and if we don’t use them it’s like he files it away in his brain but retrieving it sometimes is an issue. I also have been enjoying building on the kids skills as well. Super Teacher Worksheets has been able to fill the gaps for me when it comes to finding things for review as well as new things I can introduce to the kids. I was given an Individual Membership for this review.
