My daughter absolutely loves apps where it gives her a little challenge to think about the things she has to do to complete different levels. AvoKiddo has come out with a new app called Thinkrolls: Kings & Queens. There are two levels: Easy is ideal for younger kids (5+) and the Hard levels for older kids (8+). There are 115 easy puzzles and 113 harder puzzles. My daughter will investigate both levels of the game. She is still working on the easy levels.
One of my sons favorite subjects is science. He loves the hands on way of learning and is a very visual child. I was really excited to be introduced to The 101 Series. The 101 Series is Chemistry 101 , Biology 101 and Physics 101. For this review I did receive the DVD of Chemistry 101. This particular curriculum has a Christian approach. It best suitable for ages 15 and up.
Does your family like board games? My kids love playing board games. We try to make a night each week to have a little family time and take a break from all the electronics. I am really excited to share a brand new game called Commissioned by Chara Games. This game has a christian theme and is best suited for teens and adults.
I remember being a kid and having to learn the different parts to sentence diagramming. I don’t think I really liked it back then to be honest. Grammar wasn’t one of my best subjects. However, the one thing we have been working on is sentences and sentence structure. So I was really excited to see that The Critical Thinking Co. had a book out called Sentence Diagramming: Beginning for review. This particular book can be used with grades 3 – 12. It was interesting to see that my daughter is the total opposite of what I was back in school. She actually really enjoys this!
Do you like to teach with Unit Studies? My kids love unit studies as we can spend more time on the things we are studying if we choose. There are so many things we can add in as well. Homeschool Legacy has many titles to choose from for unit studies. For this review we received a Once-A-Week-Micro-Study called Cooking Up History with the Founding Presidents. This is for Grades 1 – 8.
