Review: MaxScholar

MaxScholar Reading Intervention Programs  is a collection of online interactive programs designed to help beginning and struggling students how to read. It uses well-researched and proven methods such as the Orton-Gillingham approach and the Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes. Now both my girls (ages 8 and 11) read way above their age and grade level. I still requested […]

Review: Critical Thinking Co.

The Critical Thinking Co.™ is one of our favorite publishers. We have been using their books in the HP Academy of Homeschool Shmool (yes, that is our ‘official’ name, according to the girls) and the kids and I love window shopping on their website. It was a bit difficult choosing which book to review, since we […]

Review: Home School Navigator

If there are things that I am always on the look out for, it’s different ways to teach Math, and an acceptable (to her) writing curriculum for Breeze. When we were given the opportunity to review Home School Navigator I was hoping that it would finally be THE curriculum we were looking for.   Home School Navigator […]

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 […]

Review: Forbrain

I always tease my daughters that they each have two volume settings for their speaking voices. Breeze’s voice settings are only Loud and Louder; and Raine’s are Soft and Mumble. My aunt (who works with special needs kids) was telling me about a voice feedback hack to help the kids hear themselves better so they […]

Review: Let the Little Children Come

I find talking about God, the Gospel, and salvation daunting sometimes, especially when talking to children. That’s why this Gospel Tracts and Evangelism Tools Sampler Pack that I got for review  from Let the Little Children Come is wonderful. Each of the ten items in the pack helps engage children children’s attention and interest, and makes […]
