Do you like to use unit studies with your kids? What about making things you can create while learning and making it a keepsake? My daughter is really enjoying learning about Ancient Greece. We received HISTORY Through the Ages Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Greece for our review, by Homeschool in the Woods. This can be used with students in grades 3 – 8. For this review I received the download.
Do your children love to cook and bake? My daughter absolutely loves to be in the kitchen with me learning how to cook and clean. Now she can be in her own little kitchen in Dr Panda’s new app called Dr Panda’s Cafe. Your child will get a hands on look at working in restaurant by seating, taking orders, cooking, serving, and cleaning up for some really cute and adorable animals. The suggested age for this is 5 and under, however my daughter is 8 and absolutely loves this app.
Do your kids love stories? Do they like activities to be part of that story? The Get Qurious – Maker Box is a new and amazing product for kids ages 4 – 9. This box set combines a digital story with physical activities that interact with the story.
You receive a box that has puzzle pieces, story cards, masks, and sticker book. You download the Get Qurious app onto your device. The instructions that come in the box are easy and it kind of kids you through which activities to do first. Really you could pick any activity but doing it in order the first time, you really understand what everything is for. As I work through this review I will explain the contents in more detail.
My daughter has been really into bible studies this last year. She has her own bible but it is a New King James Version and a little hard for her to understand. She was really excited to see The Beginner’s Bible from Zonderkidz. This is a perfect bible for kids ages 6 and under, however my daughter is 8 and is totally in love with this.
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.
