Thinkwell Review

Vendor: Thinkwell
Product: High School Math
Age: High School

About: Thinkwell is an online program that has given me the chance to review one of their High School Math courses, Geometry.  I used this with my 9th grader who has already completed Algebra and had been starting Geometry. The courses are all video based. The Geometry course that we did is priced at $125.  This is completely online. You watch a video of instruction then it gives you review and practice, which is automatically graded. This also gives you instant feedback too. You can also get printable worksheets with answer sheets for additional practice. You get access to printable notes, quizzes and those practice worksheets for you online subscription as well. These are all in color and ready to go format. 

My daughter that used this likes to do school on her own. She has preferred the online method over books for a couple years now. This one was different in the sense that instead of reading instructions for her work she was actually getting video instructions to watch and then on to doing her practice work. I liked that it automatically graded her stuff and that it gave her feedback so she could I turn correct herself or go back and review the instructional videos again. We also had the option to print the notes for her to follow along with or have handy while doing the work to go back and remember steps and rules. We really enjoyed this program all together and will continue using it to fulfill her Geometry credit for highschool. I also like that she can go at her own pace with it and go quicker when she wishes. She has always gotten bored at doing a slow pace program. If you want something to help take the lead for your kiddos you should check it out. They also have other age level programs you can use too.

Skidaway Island Georgia Field-trip

Skidaway Island State Park

Each week I try to take the kids to a new place and explore or learn something.  This week we went to Skidaway Island State Park here in Georgia.  We decided to do the 3 mile hike and see what we could find.

The Spanish Moss was beautiful.  It hung from the trees helping create a nice shade over our trail.  We also learned that Spanish Moss is free growing.  It gets everything it needs from the air around it.  That means it can grow anywhere and it is not rooted into anything.

The trees that were along the stream have their roots exposed from the tide going out and taking the sand/dirt with it.  This tree was slowly starting to fall over while still being fully alive.  Such a breath taking image.  We plan to go back and get some family pictures done around this tree.

Seriously everything here was breath taking. Even the kids enjoyed every mile of it with no complaints which was a shock.

We also learned about a Giant Sloth that was found here in Savannah.  This thing was HUGE!  I mean when you think of the Sloths we have now you do not ever imagine one being this size.  How would you even react to seeing something of this size?

Even little Syler enjoyed the view and he hates the heat and usually fusses.  He passed out a couple times along the walk but never fussed.

Sound For Life Ltd Review

Product: Soundsory
Age: Minimum of 3 years old

About: Sound for Life Ltd gave me the great chance to review Soundsory. Soundsory can be used with any age from 3 and up. It is a multi-sensory program that comes with headphones. The program has specifically designed music that is processed with neuro-acoustic modifications that you add in movement based exercises to. It it meant to help those with delays such as; motor, balance, and coordination. It can also help those on the autism spectrum or with other developmental delays. Also with things like sensory and auditory processing disorders, ADD, and ADHD. This program is 30 minutes long and should be used each day for 40 days. The days are split into two parts with the first part being 25 minutes of rhythmic music listening and the second part of the day is 5 additional minutes of music to be added to the provided body movement exercises that you find on their website. You can do things like color, draw, dance, or play while listening to the music. They also recommend a 4 week break in between repeating of the program.

How we used: We used this with my son that has ADHD as well as being on the autism spectrum. the headphones fit him, but could be a bit smaller for his head at 5 years old. He liked how once he heard the music it actually helped block out background noise. This actually helped him be able to concentrate when drawing and stuff. Normally he hears anything he has to turn look and gets distracted so much longer than he actually participates in the activity he is doing. I will say he hasn't been to fond of the movements. He doesn't like people watch him do things so it was hard trying to show him without him being embarrassed.  Overall so far I really like it.  I like that it helps him be focused and pay attention to his work at hand and less all over the place.

I recommend that anyone with a kiddo that needs some help focusing really look into this.

Also be sure to check them out on social media.

Crafty Classroom Review

Vendor: Crafty Classroom
Product: R.E.A.D. Curriculum Notebook K

I love trying out new ways to teach my kiddos to read. Crafty Classroom gave me the opportunity to try out their program, R.E.A.D. Curriculum Notebook K. Crafty Classroom makes many other fun learning subjects as well. Some of them include; alphabet, Bible, math, reading, geography, science, and writing. The R.E.A.D stands for Ready, Eager, Able, and Determined to READ! How awesome is that!! This curriculum is a 36 week course for use 4 days a week. There are daily warm ups/calendar work. Each week there is a word family, 2-3 sight words, writing prompts, grammar, early readers, and science sequencing. Every 5th week the beginning blends cycle, this is a review week.  There is also quarterly assessments and review games. Everything is set and ready for you to start teaching with very minimal prep work.  There is a daily and weekly schedule to follow to show what needs to be done and when. The pages are nice and colorful to grab your kiddos attention. This is a very large PDF file.  We printed out all of the reference pages and then I just printed enough for each week that we were in. 

We worked on this following the provided schedule.  The daily warm ups were nice to help practice writing his name.  We also went over the time and weather. Each sight word is in a pretty colorful page with example words. Next we move on to learning the sounds of its letters and reading it.  There is pages to practice writing the word as well as other words that contain that sight word as well as other activities. Like week one we learned AM. The sight words to go with it were I, am, and a.  In language arts we learned what nouns were. We had writing practice as well as the reader, Yam Jam. Every fifth week there were blends to work on.  This week is only learning and reviewing the blends and reading several early readers to get your practice in. 

I used this with my new Kindergarten child.  We liked that it followed our 4 day work week, we usually do field trips on Fridays.  The lessons were short and sweet.  There was the added review that I enjoyed.  I also like that there were assessments, this is really great for those of you in states that require them to be kept for record keeping.  It is also great to be able to see where your child is at, if they grasp the lessons they have learned or if there needs to be more practice on them. I really think this is a great program to start your child in to learn to read.  It also gives you some more subjects to touch on as well through it.  

Also be sure to check out what my other crew members had to say about Crafty Classroom and some of their other curriculum that they were able to review.
