Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App Review

The most important part of our homeschool is Bible study.  As a Christian, it is a must that our children know and have a personal relationship with the Lord.  Although, all of my children have learned to read the KJV of the Bible my youngest son and my niece still enjoy bible stories with fun colorful pictures.   Planet 316 and WorthyKids/Ideals provided us with just that and more with their Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App.  They have brought bible bed time stories to life with their augmented reality in our home.  We were thrilled to be able to review this and share it with you all.

Adaptive Math Curriculum Online from A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc.) - Review

We all know that math is one of those subjects that you either love or hate.  There's very rarely an in between when it comes to math.  I happen to be on the love side it has always been my favorite school subject.  The problem is I am not always good at teaching it because I can't always explain how to get the answer to a problem.  I just know the answer.  Yes, I know I am a total math geek.  So, between pulling my kids from public school and changing math curriculums a few (maybe a lot) times trying to find the right fit I knew my kids may have had some learning gaps when it came to math.  I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to review Adaptive Math Curriculum Online.   With Adaptive Math Curriculum Online from A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc.), we were able to identify and address those learning gaps.

Latina Christiana from Memoria Press || A Curriculum Review

I love it when I have the opportunity to learn with my kids!  I never learned Latin growing up when I was in school, but I wanted to introduce it to my kids being that many of our English words derived from Latin.  We had the opportunity to review Latina Christiana from Memoria Press and I have really enjoyed learning alongside with them.

Creation Illustrated Review

Unit Studies are a great way to dig deeper and learn more about a specific topic while still using all subjects.  So basically a unit study combines all your tradition subjects around a particular topic.  They can be as short or long as you want them to be.  I did some research on them when I first started homeschooling and always wanted to try one, but never made the time to create my own.  You have to really plan that out!  Then I heard about Creation Illustrated!  What!  The Unit Study was already put together for me?  Awesome!  Creation Illustrated sent us two of their unit studies as well as gave us access to those magazines that go with those unit studies for us to review.  I was excited to check out this popular method of homeschooling our family focused on Pine Tress Unit Study.
