Review: CodeWizardsHQ

The Hubby is in IT. So are my dad, my brother, my uncle, my aunt, and a couple of cousins. So you could say that programming, coding, IT and all that are in Raine’s blood. As a family, we’re all advocates of Girls Who Code. Raine has been trying to learn how to code for […]

Review: A+ Interactive Math

As a reformed Math-hater, I always am on the lookout for new ways to teach and learn Math. That’s why any time anything Math-related comes up for review, I immediately volunteer.   A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc. seemed particularly intriguing because it offered “Multi-Sensory Interactive Math Full Curriculum.” We chose the  Family Math Package for this review.  […]

Review: Creation Illustrated Unit Studies

We recently moved up to Baguio, which is also known as “The City of Pines.” I grew up here in Baguio, surrounded by all these gorgeous pine trees (when I was a kid, we’d even have fresh pine trees as Christmas trees–but now any tree cutting is strictly regulated), yet I have never really bothered […]

Review: NatureGlo’s eScience – MathArt Bundle

The Hubby and I advocate literacy and numeracy. We also are always on the lookout for ways to teach and learn Math, and for ways to relate Math to the real world.  That’s why when the MathArt Online 4-Class Bundle from NatureGlo’s eScience came up for review, I immediately begged for it.   I was intrigued […]

Science for the Year: Apologia Chemistry and Physics

The girls share a few subjects: Science, World History, Bible & Character. This means we have the same lesson for both, with slightly different age-adjusted follow up activities. We’ve been doing this since we started homeschool, and it really does save me time. Last year for Science, we did Apologia’s Exploring Creation Swimming Creatures of the […]

Review: A Pirate’s Guide t’ th’ Grammar of Story

Both Raine and Breeze didn’t work too well with the Language Arts program of Sonlight and Bookshark, so we were looking for a better alternative. Raine found her groove with Apologia’s Writers in Residence this year (more on this in a separate post). Breeze was a little more difficult to pin down. When I got […]

Review: Brinkman Adventures

We have been enjoying audiobooks for some time now, and a well-narrated one can keep the girls enthralled for hours (Neil Patrick Harris’ reading of Beverly Cleary’s Henry Huggins has been the hands-down winner so far). We’ve never tried a full-production radio drama like Brinkman Adventures before, so I was excited to have the girls […]

Review: Super Teacher Worksheets

The girls love worksheets, so the Individual Membership from Super Teacher Worksheets was a welcome review. Super Teachers Worksheets is a by-membership site where you can find and download a plethora of worksheets (mostly for K to 5th grade, with some of the chapter book activities going up to 7th grade). With worksheets that cover […]

Review: Let’s Go Geography

My kids have always been fond of geography, so when Let’s Go Geography offered one year of their three-year geography curriculum for review, I wanted to try it out. What it is and who used it Let’s Go Geography is a downloadable curriculum that tackles one country every lesson. Each lesson is a PDF file […]
