Code for Teens - A Coding Guide for Teenagers - Review

You know how much my son loves coding.  You also may remember the online coding class he did earlier this year.  And you already know how our family feels about electronics and children.  <--- We don't encourage it as much as other parents because we feel kids spend too much time on video games and watching how-to videos instead of actually doing.  However, because the world we are living in is becoming more and more technology-driven we want our kids to have some idea of how to navigate in a world full of "tech-geeks".  So we tried our hands and brains at another coding program.  I'm back today with another review for you, Code for Teens: The Awesome Beginner's Guide to Programming (Volume 1) from Code for Teens.

Math Refresher for Adults - Review

Hey yall!  I hope you are having a great week!  Let's chat about math a bit.  You know the subject people either love or hate.  Yes, that one.  If you are like me, and I am sure many other homeschool moms, you cringe at the thought of teaching math to your older kids.  Math is actually my favorite subject and I remember still being nervous as my kids got older knowing the math would become more complicated.  I've even heard parents say that they have hired a tutor, put their children in co-ops, or even sent them back to public school so that they didn't have to teach math.  Some of them never even attempted to do it they were just intimidated by the thought.  Math can be very intimidating especially when you haven't used it in a while.  I'm not talking about the everyday general math like budgeting bills, determining your children's allowance, baking in the kitchen, or grocery shopping I am talking the Geometry, percentage, Algebra, etc.   Well, you will be happy to know that I have found an awesome resource that I have been working through over the last month or so, that will give you the confidence you need teach your child math.  Math Refresher for Adults by Math Essentials has been a blessing and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to review it.
