{Review} Kwik Stix

untitled

 

When most mom’s hear the question, “Mom, can I paint?” they cringe at the thought of the paint and the mess that comes along with it.  The water that gets spilled.  The paint that gets all over not just the kids but random places around the house.  Then either grudgingly they say yes and pray that the paint stays in one place or they say no, not at this time and have disappointed kids.  Let me introduce you to Kwik Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc.  Kwik Stix, the paint that you will not hesitate to say yes to!

My family was first introduced to Kwik Stix earlier this year when we had the opportunity to review the product as a part of the Homeschool Review Crew.  The Pencil Grip, Inc. contacted me recently to see if we would be interested in reviewing their Neon & Metalix sets.  We said yes!  My kids love them and so do I!

I was once that mom that I mentioned above.  I cringed at the thought of painting, especially with 5 young children and Kwik Stix changed that!  I find myself now saying yes nearly every time they ask to paint and the two youngest (4 & 3) love to paint with Kwik Stix.

Kwik Stix are solid tempera paint in stick form about the size of a standard glue stick and are perfect for little hands.  You uncap, twist, & paint.  No water is needed so no mess when the cup is accidentally tipped over.  You don’t have to worry about the colors mixing because they do not bleed!  The best thing about Kwik Stix is that the paint dries in 90 seconds!  Yes, 90 seconds!  Kwik Stix are also great for classrooms and co-ops (96 ct & 144 ct sets are available!).  Clean up is a breeze!  Other than putting things away and making sure the caps are on tight so the Kwik Stix don’t dry out, clean up is minimal.

The colors in the Neon set are nice and bright & I love the glittery shimmer of the colors in the Metalix set.  Both sets are a great addition to the classic set we reviewed earlier in the year.

With Christmas quickly approaching Kwik Stix by The Pencil Grip makes an awesome stocking stuffer or gift.  They also make excellent gifts throughout the entire year!  You can find them in variety of colors and sets.  They can be found on Amazon (Metalix – Set of 6
Neon – 6 Pack, Classic – 6 Pack, Classic – 12 Pack, 24 ct Classic, Neon, and Metalix Combo set, 96 Pack, and 144 ct Classic – 12 of Each Classic Color) & at Target (online & in stores).

My older girls recently painted pictures of the characters from the movie ‘Inside Out’ (Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger).

{Review} FamilyChristian.com website review plus a giveaway!!

Recently, I had the opportunity to review FamilyChristian.com with a $25 certificate.  FamilyChristian.com has a wide selection of items from gifts, décor and apparel to books, Bibles and much more!  They even sell things for churches and various ministries.  If you are looking for something faith based please check out FamilyChristian.com or one of their local stores!
325556
When looking at what to spend my $25 on I took a look at the Bibles that FamilyChristian.com carries.  I have been looking for a new Bible for a while and haven’t found anything that was what I was looking for.  I was interested in a journaling Bible but nothing stood out in the Bible translations that I preferred until I came across the ESV Journaling Bible: Interleaved Edition w/ strap – Brown Leather at FamilyChristian.com!  It has a FULL blank page next to every page of Bible text!!!  Most of the other journaling Bibles only have extra wide margins and that wasn’t enough space for me!  The other problem that I was running into was the majority of the journaling Bibles had lined margins, which I didn’t want.  Sadly, this Bible did not go into my cart due to the cost ($129.99) but it was added to my wishlist!

I love to read and there is a large selection of books to choose from at FamilyChristian.com!  You will see all of the books that are sold in stores as well as at FamilyChristian.com.  There is not a filter to filter out the items that are sold at stores only so if you do not have a store close by you, you will see many products that are sold in stores only.  Here is what I finally decided on buying with my $25.  Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson and The Amish Nanny by Leslie Gould and Mindy Starns Clark.  Dee Henderson is one of my favorite authors and this is one of her newest books and The Amish Nanny is the second book in a series called ‘The Women of Lancaster County Series #2’.  Since I enjoyed book one I decided to go ahead and get the second book.  I am excited to receive them!

{Review} Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids

Beginner Spanish Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids Review

Are you looking for a fun and engaging Spanish program?  My family had the pleasure of reviewing the Starter Set 1 by Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids.

 

Beginner Spanish Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids ReviewMy family received:

  • DVD with videos for Levels 1-3
  • Three Parent-Teacher Guides
  • Flashcards and Card Games for Levels 1 to 3
  • Workbooks for Levels 1-3
  • Stickers for Levels 1-3
  • Go Squish Card Game

Flight 101: Basketballs Aren’t for Breakfast starts off in the morning with three boys and their mom getting ready for breakfast.  Then you follow the family throughout their day.  You watch segments of the video during every lesson and will watch the segments multiple times for the repetition.  The kids and I accidently watched the entire video for Level 1 the first time we played it.  We were enjoying it so much that I completely forgot about having to stop the video at the time marker for lesson 1.  (There is no marker on the DVD to let you know to stop the video).  At the conclusion of the video it left the girls and I wanting to watch more.

The Guide for Teachers and Parents has everything laid out for you!  It makes it easy for those who have had no prior knowledge of the Spanish language.  There are vocabulary word banks in the guide that include the English translation  of the words.  During every lesson you will watch either a portion of or the entire segment of the video and then there a few activities, including games, to do.  You will repeat the lessons multiple times and it is very flexible in fitting the needs of your family.  You can complete this program at the pace that works best for your family!

The flash cards are colored coded by level.  Blue for level 1, green for level 2, and red for level 3.  There is a set of picture cards, word cards, and word bank cards.  The word cards are all in Spanish and they match the picture cards.  Every picture card is numbered so you can quickly glance at the word bank cards for the answer.  The cards are used in the Go Squish Card Game and other activities that are found in the teacher’s guide.  They are open ended so you can design your own game or activity as well.

All of the very bright and colorful pages of the student workbooks are printed on quality paper.  The workbooks are designed for upper elementary students.  In the workbooks there are various activities to be completed by the students.  If you have younger students you can complete the workbook together.  The activities include a word search, a cross word, decoding words, and answering questions.  If needed, the answers are provided in the back of the book.

IMG_0126

Sheets of stickers with vocabulary words are provided to be placed around the house to aid in helping the students remember the vocabulary that they have learned.  I didn’t want to encourage my kids to stick stickers on things around the house so Sweet Pea and I brainstormed on how we could use them.  Sweet Pea decided to place the stickers on colored card stock and cut around the edges.  As you can see in the photo below she added a design to the edges while she was cutting them out.

IMG_0125
The Go Squish card game is similar to ‘Go Fish’.  The game is designed for 2-4 four players but with additional cards (either using the cards from the other levels or buying an additional set of cards) you can play with more children.  It is suggested to have a second set of cards if you have non readers playing so you will have two sets of the picture cards.  The object of the game is to get enough miles for Squisher to go visit his friend through matching the pairs together.

I think this beginner Spanish set is a great way to introduce Spanish to children!  It is designed to teach to the various learning styles and it keeps the kids engaged.  The girls want to continue using Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids along with the program that they have been using.

{Review} Talking Fingers Inc.: Talking Shapes

Talking Shapes {Talking Fingers Inc. Review}Peanut and I were blessed with the opportunity of reviewing Talking Shapes: A Supplemental Curriculum for Early Literacy by Talking Fingers Inc.   We received a one year subscription.

Talking Shapes {Talking Fingers Inc. Review}
{The link in this review is for the app but Peanut and I reviewed the online program and we used our computer to access the program.}

Talking Shapes takes seven stories and introduces all forty phonemes in the English language as well as introduces the alphabet to young children.  Every story builds upon what the child has learned in the previous books.

To access Talking Shapes, you log in through an internet browser.  It may take a few minutes to load so please be patient!

TalkingShapes1
Once loaded you will see a scene with seven books in it.  The completed books will be filled in and the uncompleted books will be grayed out.  The books must be completed in order.  There are four sections in each of the books; Story, Letters, Spell, and Read.

Patrissa & Natalia, who their friends call Pat and Nat, and living in the ancient world and love to tell stories about the letters and alphabet that they have invented.  While students listen to the entire story they learn the alphabet, their sounds, and how to blend CVC words.

 

Talking Shapes {Talking Fingers Inc. Review}

Students are given fun ways to remember how to write the letters.  The students trace the letter a few times and then move on to blending them together with other letters they have already learned in the prior books.  When blending they trace the letters, connect them together and when the letters are connected they hear the blended sound.  Peanut did have a bit of trouble connecting the tiles together using a trackpad mouse and will ask for my help with dragging and dropping.  If your child is able to drag and drop with a trackpad mouse then they should not have any problems with this task.

TalkingShapes2

 

The students work on spelling CVC words such as hat, cat, pan, man.  Each book has three games for students to do.  In Game 1 the students work on spelling the words by draw the letters inside the picture.  In Game 2 the students work on the same set of words but they now draw the letters inside the guidelines.  Then in Game 3 they work on the same set of words but this time they draw the letters inside the picture without any guides.

Talking Shapes {Talking Fingers Inc. Review}
Before the student finishes the book they listen to the story one more time.  The word that is currently spoken is lit up so the student sees it on the screen as well.  After the paragraph is read the CVC words scroll across the screen on balloons and the students work on filling in the blanks of the paragraph, one sentence at a time.  If the student needs assistance they can click on the lips and the sentence will be read back to them.  When they select the correct answer the balloon pops and the word appears on the blank.

 

Talking Shapes {Talking Fingers Inc. Review}
Peanut loves talking shapes and asks daily to play it!  I think it is a nice program overall.  Talking Shapes has kept Peanut engaged and she asks to use it regularly.  It has a lot of opportunities to practice tracing the letters and blending as well as learning the sounds.

{Review} CTCMath

CTCMath Review

 

We received a one-year CTCMath Homeschool Membership by CTCMath to review.  With the membership we have received unlimited access to all lessons for every grade and can access it from anywhere that there is an internet connection.  CTCMath is great for large families!  The CTCMath Homeschool Membership allows up to 10 students!

CTCMath Review

Parent Area of CTCMath:

In the parent’s area, I can manage and create tasks, manage my kid’s information, and view weekly reports.  In the parent’s area I loved having the ability to schedule tasks in advance! Creating tasks is simple.  I choose the date and time that I want the assignments completed, a title (up to 100 words) and description (up to 200 words) are entered, add the lessons, add diagnostic tests, and assign students to the task.  The other options that are available are that I can have the task report automatically emailed to me when the task falls due, I can require that the lessons and diagnostic test be completed in a specific order, and I can hide the year level of the lessons and diagnostic tests from my children.  Lessons & diagnostic tests are not available to my children until the date and time that are entered.  If needed the dates and times can be changed on every task.  The weekly reports are emailed to me every week.  In the weekly reports, I receive a pdf attachment that contains the weekly activity log and the overall performance of my kids (how many assignments that have been completed on time, late, and incomplete, the average grade, and how many lessons that have been completed.  The weekly reports are also available on the CTCMath website for up to three months.

Lessons are a great length for my young children!  The lessons are video lessons for my girls the videos have been less than 5 minutes in duration and then my children answer a series of questions.  They receive immediate feedback if they answered the questions correct or not.  At the end of every lesson I have an option of printing a copy (More about that later.) of the questions that my girls have completed.  The lessons take about 15 minutes total to be completed.

Student Area of CTCMath:

Every child has their own log-in information to access the student area.  The student menu contains lessons, tasks, results, settings, and history.  The girls have access to every lesson from Kindergarten to Trigonometry.  While it is a great option to have for student led learning, it would be nice to be able to have an option to disable access to other areas if needed.  All of the asks that have been assigned to the student are accessed from the tasks menu.  The girls are able to view their results for the tasks, diagnostic tests, as well as view detailed reports.  In settings, they are given the option to change the display colors, including making their own choice of colors to pair together.

IMG_1689

Printing from CTCMath:

After every lesson has been completed, CTCMath offers the opportunity to print the completed lesson directly through a print button on their website.  I like having the ability to print a copy of the work that my children have completed.  Sweet Pea has been completing most of her lessons on an iPad.  There are a couple of different ways to print the lesson from the iPad and I printed both ways to compare the way that they print.  The two options I used was printing through the print button on the CTCMath website and printing through the share to printer feature on the iPad.  I did notice a couple of differences.

The pages printed from the website print button:

I like that the pages included the student’s name, the date the lesson was completed, the grade level, the lesson name (Subtraction up to 20) & location (2nd Grade –> Number, Patterns and Algebra –> Subtraction), the score, the number correct, and duration.

On the printed page, I am shown the problems that my girls have completed as shown to them.  Some of the questions are just the questions themselves (IE: 12-4, 10+1, 37-23, etc.) and others had the questions along with the manipulatives they used (ice cream cones, smiley faces, blocks, etc.), the problem, a blank answer box, and a check mark to mark that the problem was answered correctly.  However, it did not have the answer in the answer box.  The formatting of the page is slightly off.  The questions themselves are smushed together and the words are overlapping.

From the iPad share to printer option:

When we printed the completed lesson using the print button on the CTCMath website there is a little more formatting at the header and footer of the page (see the picture).  In between the two it is set up similar to printing through the CTCMath website print option.  However printing through this option, the answers the girls responded with ARE included on the page.  Like printing directly from the CTC print button feature, the formatting is off when printing through the iPad share to printer option.  This time some of the questions, overlapped onto the question to the right of it, or part of the question was cut off completely.

I did find out that there is no way to go back and print a copy of a previously completed lesson so the lessons & tests must be printed at the time of completion.  An option to be able to print the completed pages at a later date or email a pdf copy of the completed lesson to the email on the account would be a wonderful addition!

Below is a picture of Sweet Pea using her Nabi Big Tab to access CTCMath.

IMG_1702

Overall, we enjoyed using the elementary school levels of CTCMath!   When I asked Sweet Pea what she liked the most she told me that she loves everything about CTCMath!  I think it is a great program whether you are looking for a complete program or something to supplement in the elementary school years.

{Review & Giveaway} All Things Bright and Beautiful

Are you looking for a great book to read to your young daughter or granddaughter?  My family had the pleasure of reviewing ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ by Cecil Frances Alexander and Illustrated by Katy Hudson.

AllThingsBrightandBeautiful

Cecil Frances Alexander first published the hymn ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ in 1848.  This hymn is still sung by many churches today.  Katy Hudson brings everything to life with her beautiful illustrations!  When the book first arrived I sat down and flipped through all of the beautiful pages!

IMG_2110[1]

IMG_2108[1]
In the book, three young children spend a day walking around, enjoying God’s creations, and discovering all of the things that are bright and beautiful.  From the sun, moon and stars to the plants and animals God made them all!

‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ is a 32 page jacketed hardcover book for ages 4-7 and retails for $15.99. Every two page spread is a part of Cecil Frances Alexander’s hymn and Katy’s marvelous artwork.  Sweet Pea enjoyed looking at all of the pages over and over again.  It is a great book to curl up together and read with young children!

About the artist:

Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in her spare time.
