If you like upbeat, family and educational videos, then I highly recommend checking out Curiosity Quest. The host Joel Greene takes viewers on ventures that stem from curiosity requests. Each video starts out with a viewer question and then the adventure begins. The shows are not scripted they are hands on.
We received two DVD Combo Pack – Produce and DVD Combo Pack – Swimmers of the Sea. Both of which we really enjoyed.
The DVD Combo Pack – Produce ($24.95) had three episodes on it: Mushrooms, Orange Picking, and Cranberries. We loved all three episodes.
As my son is getting older now I have been thinking about study skills and ways to teach him how to study. I have had the chance to review Victus Study Skills System. It is a system approach to studying. It doesn’t just teach an isolated area of study or individual components to master. It teaches a way of thinking. The way these things are taught you can use these skills through a whole lifetime.
Monki Animal Builder is an app that lets your child have fun, be creative, and use their imagination in creating their own animal.
When you first open the app you press an arrow and you are brought to a page that has 6 eggs. Your child will pick which egg they would like to hatch. I noticed that each egg we picked had a different shape that it hatched. One hatched you press on the body.
If your child loves the medieval times then you have to check out Sticker Play: Knights, Dragons and Castles. This is an amazing app that we seriously could spend hours playing. This is interactive sticker book with sound and animation.
There is a wide variety of knights, king, queen, dragons, catapult, battering rams and many other things to choose from to make your scenes. You have 5 different scenes to choose from.
State Bingo and Geography Crossword is a very nifty little app that makes learning the states shapes, abbreviations, and capitals fun.
This app has three modes: easy, medium, and hard. Of course with my son, I had to choose the easy as this is all new to him yet. Then you can choose Bingo or a Crossword Puzzle.
The first thing we did was play Bingo. You solve the riddles to place your piece on the bingo card. You can even use a beautifully illustrated map to look for clues. When you win you send a state to state hood.
