Free Printables!

Have you visited Education.com? This is a great site for a plethora of information including activities, finding a school or even a college, and LOTS of free printables! You may find that you would rather just have the workbook at your fingertips when you want it, and you can order them here, too. You'll find workbooks for every age, and every subject! 

Visit today and let me know what you find!

Have You Considered Renting Textbooks?

Textbooks can be so expensive! We just paid $275.15 for two textbooks for our oldest daughter's college classes. I can't imagine what we will have to pay when she is taking six classes next year! I don't want to think about it.

After finding Campus Book Rentals, I may never buy another textbook! I checked on the books we just bought, and we would have saved almost $100! Here's one of the books we just bought:

It's so easy to search for books. I just put in the ISBN, and my books came up with pricing and other details. Many books were a lot less expensive to rent, but this is a brand new book. Watch this video to see how it works:


I told you it was easy! 


Another thing I love about Campus Book 
Rentals is that they give back through the Making a Difference Program, which supports a couple of different 
charities. One of those charities
is Operation Smile, where children with cleft palates and other disfiguring facial deformities are able to have life-changing surgery that they probably never would have received otherwise. Just look at this before and after photograph!

The next time you are looking for textbooks, check with Campus Book Rentals first. You'll be saving money, which will put a smile on your face, and you'll help put smiles on the faces of these kids through Operation Smile. That's a win-win in my book.

Come back and share how much you saved by using Campus Book Rentals!

Have you seen Study Dog?

More and more companies are coming out with phonics programs, which, in my humble opinion, is not a bad thing. According to an article in the Huffington Post, high schoolers are reading books appropriate for fifth graders. If my child was in that group that needed help, I would do whatever it took to improve their ability to read. This isn't a subject a parent should take lightly. It's not like that marine biology class that may never be discussed again. This inability will follow them all their lives.

Though there are programs that help the struggling older reader, the time to really focus on reading is when they are young. Finding a program that engages the short attention span of most little ones is so important. When your child asks to do another lesson, you know you are on to something.
Study Dog looks like it would hold the attention of any young child. Its engaging, colorful format looks more  like a fun game than a learning tool. You'll also find tools for charting your child's progress, which, according to the Study Dog website, is pretty stellar; 6 million kids have learned to read better.

The price of Study Dog isn't too bad, either. If you pay for the year, it's just $4.99 month. It's more if you pay by the month, but you can do a free 7 day trial, and then you have 30 days to cancel for a full refund. It's would certainly be worth the money for me if I still had a young child in the house.

Review: Discover Intensive Phonics by Reading Horizons

Don't you find that our kids are expected to know so much more at such an early age? I remember when my oldest was going into first grade. I had only thought about homeschooling at that point. She had gone to preschool each year for the typical Mommy & Me at 2, a couple of hours in the 3year-old program, and a half day for the 4 year-old class. Then she went to a private Christian school for kindergarten. My girl was learning fast and I just knew she would do well once she got to regular school.

You can imagine my surprise when my little rocket-scientist-to-be brought home a letter from her teacher telling us that she would be put in the lowest reading group. The LOWEST! I read to her every day! She knew how to read several of the books I read to her daily. I just could not believe she wasn't in the top group! Wake-up call! Evidently, the school she was in for first grade had an amazing pre-K and K program and most of these kids were on a third grade reading level. 

So, I scrambled. I bought a popular reading program (this was over 10 years ago) and got to work. The program was phonics based, and she took off reading. Within about a month's time, she was in the group just under the top level. It was a lot of work, but we did it. I only wish I had known how important it was to prepare her before she got to first grade.

When I was asked to review Discover Intensive Phonics by Reading Horizons, I jumped at the chance. I try to bring my readers the best educational resources available. The website looked amazing, and I couldn't wait to see what the actual program looked like.


I have to say I was initially overwhelmed when I got the package. For purposes of the review, they sent me a lot of information so I could really see how the program works. I must also add that this program is currently used in many school systems. I really love that they have a program for young kids, but also offer a different program for older struggling readers. According to a recent article in Huffington Post, high schoolers are reading at a 5th grade level. From that article:

The results come from "What Kids Are Reading: The Book-Reading Habits of Students in American Schools," a report by Renaissance Learning, Inc. The data covers book-reading records for the 2010-2011 academic year among 2.6 million students in grades 1-12 from 24,465 schools in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

I don't know how you feel about those statistics, but I find it frightening. As parents, we need to take back the responsibility of being sure our kids are reading at grade level. 

Using this program is easy once you understand the layout. The teacher's guide is in units and sections, and you'll find extras depending on whether students have had phonics instruction. Once you get the hang of the guide, you'll find the instructions easy to understand:

"At the conclusion of this lesson, students will begin to practice writing their names. Provide each student with a sample of their names written on lined paper."

This lesson continues with vowel instruction for the letter "a." That is all you will do for the first day. I have to add here that for homeschoolers, you could easily go through several of the lessons each day. I love that the program teaches writing, as well! You will also see different styles of handwriting so you can use whichever style is used in your child's classroom if they are in school. This is important as schools want the students to stick with one method.

The program I received also came with 4 readers. I like that they don't make the readers look like they are for 4 year olds as we often need to use them with older kids.

There is also an elementary CD provided with further instruction to maximize the program's materials. All in all, this system would be perfect to use with a beginning or struggling reader.

This program now comes as a software download, as well, making it even easier to use all it has to offer. You'll get a user name and password which gives you access to lessons. Each time a lesson is completed, your child will have access to other lessons. I think most children will be able to sit on their own to do these lessons, with a parent waiting in the wings in case they run into a problem or question. Future lessons are locked, which would be incentive to my kids to work at a good pace so they could unlock the next lesson! Your child will also learn vocabulary words after completing each lesson as this program boasts 10,000 vocabulary terms. Again, the student can earn points to progress to the next level. You even have options to change the way the background looks and make the voice a female voice or male voice, depending on your child's preference. 

Once your child has begun reading you will be able to access the library where you'll find 225 non-fiction passages from topics on sports to world leaders, and ranging from level 1 all the way up to level 12.9. You will have everything you need to prepare your child to be a fluent reader with this program.

After looking over both programs, I would definitely order the software over the books version. That's just my opinion, but I know most kids would rather be on the computer than looking at another school book! It would be a nice break from their other classes, too. 


If you have a child that is not reading, or not reading well, you need to check out Discover Intensive Phonics from Reading Horizons. Don't take my word for it. The company offers a 60 day money back guarantee. In fact, you can even try the program right now for 7 days for free. 

I would love to hear about your experience with phonics programs, and especially with Discover Intensive Phonics if you've used it. Please share in the comments below. 

I received a program from Reading Horizons in order to write this review. All opinions are my own. 

Book Review: 101 Great Gifts Kids Can Make

I know people love getting handmade gifts from their kids, grandkids, students, etc., but sometimes I just feel like it's the same old stuff. Which is why I love this book, 101 Great Gifts Kids Can Make by Stephanie R Mueller and Ann Wheeler. 
First off, the Table of Contents gives you all the ideas, broken up into categories. Thank you! So, I'm looking for ideas for Christmas Presents, and I see in Chapter 4 there's a list of "Office Originals." Here you'll find directions on how to make calendars, mouse pads, and other items perfect for Mom or Dad's office, or for a teacher's desk. There is even an entire chapter devoted to "Wrap it Up!" You'll see directions there on how to make gift bags, decorative wrapping paper, and more! 

The step by step instructions make it easy for your kids to make 101 Great Gifts, just like the title says! Most of these are so easy I think your kiddos could do it on their own. You can purchase 101 Great Gifts Kids Can Make at Gryphon House or other book retailers.


I received a copy of this book for purposes of this review.

Algebra Explained- App Review

I loved Algebra in high school. Call me crazy, but I thought it was fun! Ask my daughter how she liked Algebra 2 Honors, and you will get a very different answer.

I am betting she would have done much better if she'd had the Algebra Explained app by iLearnFastSoftware.com. This app is actually makes Algebra fun! 

Using entertaining videos, study cards and practice problems, this is so different than learning from a boring textbook. Designed by a former math teacher with a Masters in Curriculum Development, these lessons are so easy to follow. Some of the concepts in Algebra are very abstract, but they are explained using everyday language that makes it easy to understand.



When my oldest daughter was in 8th grade in private school, I paid a tutor on top of the tuition at the school as she struggled with Honors Algebra 1 and her teacher didn't have time to work with her. If this app had been available then, it probably would have saved me the extra tutor money!

To give you an idea of what this program features: (from the app page)

• Each lesson is an expertly produced video with clear examples that use coloring and animation to highlight key concepts
• 10 thoughtfully created and sequenced practice problems per lesson
• Study cards for key facts with the ability to edit, create or delete study cards
• Email your study cards to yourself or a friend
• Electronic scratch paper
• Electronic graph paper
• Calculator
• Quizzes and a test 
• Problems & lessons that emphasize personal finance 
• History of practice sessions
• Souvenir diploma for graduates
• **Add additional learners for free**
• Password protected login as desired
• Reporting to track progress by learner, lesson or date


All this for $3.99 for each chapter! Only 3 1/2 chapters are available at this time, but 3 more chapters will be available in the fall. The apps are currently available for the iPad and iPhone only, though the company is working on releasing it for Android. 

My younger daughter starts Algebra this year, and I can't wait to see the difference this app makes for her!

I received codes to access these apps for purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.

Book Review: Make it Count,180 Devotions for the School Year

Do you regularly do devotions to start your day? We have tried so many times, but it seems like by the second month of school, we are forgetting it again. We get busy and say we will do it tomorrow, and then tomorrow is just as busy!

When I received the book, Make it Count180 Devotions for the School Year by Sue Christian, I first thought the devotions were too short. Each page has a scripture verse, and a short paragraph related to the verse. Here's one that is timely, with all the talk about bullying in the news:


 In school there is a lot of talk about others, and some of it can be unkind. Be careful with what you hear about someone else. Gossip can be very dangerous.
"A solitary witness against someone in any crime, wrongdoing, or in any sort of misdeed that might be done is not sufficient. The decision must stand by two or three witnesses." 
Deuteronomy 19:15

Could you think of a discussion to go along with this? I know I could. I think this could easily turn into a 10-15 minuted talk with my kids. In the devotionals we have done before, some of them had 3-4 pages to read before the discussion. After the first page, my kids were probably thinking about what they needed to get done for school, and not even listening anymore! I like the idea of having a scripture verse and a short explanation, so we can spend some time on what it means, and how we can implement it. We are planning to start the school year with this book. Hopefully it will help us to start each day with scripture and discussion that will help us grow to be more Christ-like.

You can pick up your own copy of Make it Count at Amazon.com, Christianbook.com and other book retailers.



I received a copy of this book for purposes of this review. No other compensation was received.

Marlow and the Monster by Sharon Cramer


I am periodically asked to review books. Some of them are really cute, and some, not so much. Once in while, I will receive a book like Marlow and the Monster by Sharon Cramer.


When my daughter (almost 16, mind you) saw this when I first opened the envelope, she took it from me and curled up on the couch to read it. The illustrations, also by Cramer, are fabulous. As you can see from the photos, most of the illustrations are in quill pen and ink, with just the monster in beautiful, bright, bold color. So clever! Each illustration in this book took between 30-40 hours to create. It truly is a work of art. 

The story is about Marlow and a monster that keeps visiting him. The monster is not at all scary, but he thinks he is! The monster hides whenever Mom or Dad are around, but manages to get Marlow in trouble on more than one occasion. Marlow becomes pretty frustrated as no one believes the monster is real. Finally, he takes the monster to his sister's room, just to get rid of him. Marlow gives the monster to his little sister, Sarah, who screams when she sees it. It doesn't take long for Sarah to realize the monster is not so bad.

Marlow and the Monster is the fourth children's book by Cramer. She also wrote the three book series, Cougar Cub Tales. A mom and a nurse, Cramer understands how all children have confronted monsters of their own.

Your children will love this book! It's the kind of book that would make my kids ask, "Again, again!" I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

If you have little ones who are afraid of the dark, or worried about monsters, download your own copy of tips from author Sharon Cramer here.

You can get your own copy of Marlow and the Monster at Talking Bird Books for $14.95.

I'm excited to share that one of my readers will win a copy of Marlow and the Monster!

Review & Giveaway! Smart Start by Pam Schiller

We all know how important brain development is in the early years. If there are activities we can do to improve brain function, why wouldn't we want to spend time doing those activities?

The only reason I can think of that parents would not spend time stimulating their child's brain is that they don't know what to do. Pam Schiller, PhD, served as head of the Early Childhood Department at the University of Houston, and wrote the book Smart Start to teach parents how to help their children boost brain power. In this book are those activities that you need to be doing on a regular basis to form those needed brain synapses.
From Smart Start, "There is currently little debate about whether learning is more dependent on nature or nurture. It is clear from the research that nature lays down a complex system of brain circuitry, but how that circuitry is "wired" depends upon external forces such as nutrition, surroundings, and stimulation."

To give you an idea of what activities are included (you can start using these now!)
  • Animal movements: Demonstrate how an animal moves. Ask your child to copy your movements.
  • Place a large sheet of paper on the floor and help baby finger paint on hands and knees. This will strengthen shoulders and hips and encourage weight shifting.
  • Rearrange the children's toys and equipment every so often. Let the children help if they express an interest in doing so.
  • Read a book backwards! See this information on page 91 of the book. Fascinating!
These are just a few of the ideas in this much needed book. You will find more strategies listed by type of activity, with age-appropriate activities listed in each chapter. In addition, you'll find suggestions for books to read to your child at different ages. 


You can purchase Smart Start through Gryphon House here or check with your local retailer.


I'm excited to give away a copy of this book generously provided by Gryphon House Books! Entering is easy! 
Follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter below! 

I received a copy of Smart Start for purposes of review. All opinions are mine.

GoSum Math App for iPod or iPad Fun!

Kids love apps, there's no doubt about it. But a math app? I spent some time playing GoSum, Count On Fun! today, and I can definitely see how it could become addicting! 
Played like Scrabble, the object is to make a correct sum, horizontally or vertically, that is connected to an existing number. Easier said than done!


It took me a while to get the hang of it, but once I did,I was on a roll! I beat myself in the first game 44 to 30!

I passed the game on to my 13 year old daughter who  played it for a few minutes and said, "I thought I was still on summer vacation!"  She was not nearly as interested in the game as I was.

Once we are back in the swing of the school year, I think this app would come in handy for practice in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In fact, I am betting my daughter would love it if I gave her the day off from Pre-Algebra to let her try her hand at it again.

Just not until then!

GoSum for the iPhone is available for download at the iTunes App Store for 99 cents. I can promise it will get you thinking again after this summer break!

Do you have a favorite app for learning math? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!

FLVS Superstar Students ROCK at USTA Nationals!


If you have spent any time here with me, you know how much I love Florida Virtual School. My girls both attend FLVS from home. You might say we are homeschoolers, because we do school from home. But each class my girls take has an instructor that works with them, just like in a brick and mortar school. Even better, their teachers are available from 8am-8pm by phone, email, text and even instant messaging! It's pretty awesome.

Other families love it, too, for many different reasons. The Whitehurst twins of Tallahassee attend FLVS as they are tennis players and it allows them the freedom to attend competitions all over the country and still attend their school classes. We aren't talking local tennis club competitions. These kids have been there, done that. They are competing in the USTA National 16-18 year old Championships! In fact, as of just this week, Terrence and Terrell, who are identical twins, scored a big win in USTA doubles in Kalamazoo, MI. These guys also happen to be straight A students. Not an easy feat any way you look at it, but FLVS makes it easier. These boys can get their school work done while they're on the road, just by taking their laptops along.

Congratulations, Terrence & Terrell! You rock!

I have in no way been compensated for writing about FLVS. My girls attend free, as does any student in the state of Florida. You may be able to attend a free virtual school in your state, too. Check with Florida Virtual School or your local school board.
