If your looking to add a little change to your history class, I suggest checking out the amazing audio dramas from Heirloom Audio Productions. The audio dramas will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep your child very engaged. We have really enjoyed listening to Beric The Briton, for this review.
Beric The Briton is a story about faith, grace, sacrifice, and redemption. It is set back in the time period when Nero was King of Rome and the ruler of Britannia was Queen Boadicea. Britannia was at the time living under Roman occupation.
One of the things both my daughter and I love are to read poetry. She has always liked to do this since she has been smaller. We had the chance to review Linguistic Development Through Poetry Memorization by Institute for Excelling in Writing. The nice thing is this program was designed for grades K – 12.
For this review I did receive the Linguistic Development through Poetry Memorization Teachers Manual and CD’s. This also allows you to download the the Student E-book and Seven audio MP3s. I also did receive a Student Book. Please note that the Student Book Spiral Bound is a separate purchase. It is not included with the Teachers Manual and CD’s.
Apologia Educational Ministries has a new series of books called iWitness. They take you on an incredible journey through things such archeological biblical discoveries, the Old Testament and the New Testament. We learned so much from reading these books. Everything was so fascinating that you just want to keep reading to find out more. We had the chance to review three books: iWitness Biblical Archaeology ($14.00) New Testament iWitness ($14.00) Old Testament iWitness ($14.00) iWitness Biblical Archaeology takes you on a journey about important finds that give us good reason to think the history of the Bible is accurate. Some of the topics you will find here is the flood, searching for Noahs’s ark, Egyptian Chronology, Exdous, some different inscriptions, Seige of Jerusalem, Old testament History, Dead Sea Scrolls, It talks about Jesus. It’s hard to pick just one or two to talk about because it was all truly fascinating. I will pick a couple our favorite parts.
A couple weeks ago I was introduced an app called Playtales. Playtales is an awesome app for kids. There is storybooks with mini games and cute little toys. The app is free to download and you can even preview 2 of the books on your bookshelf and 1 toy on your toy shelf. You also get to preview things before you buy them. Well I have a great announcement to share about the tales. The tales are now permanently 99 cents. What an awesome deal. I was really thrilled when I heard the news. I just recently bought my daughter Crazy Farm. We haven’t played it yet as we have been sick the last week. My daughter is crazy about the story and the mini games.
