A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc.) – A Homeschool Review

In our homeschool journey, we have yet to find a perfect fit for math curriculum. So when I was given the opportunity to use and review the Adaptive Math Curriculum Online program from A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc.) I jumped at the chance! The Adaptive Math Curriculum Online program utilizes adaptive placement tests to find any gaps in your child’s learning and then develops a lesson plan to help fill those gaps. It includes video lessons, interactive review, practice worksheets online, automatic grading, tracking, re-testing, and is completely automated-

Some of the others on the review crew are using the Family Math Package, which does not pre test students. It is a package of all the grade levels with video lessons, interactive review, practice worksheets, chapter tests, automatic grading and more. This program is quite flexible because you have the option of moving your child from one grade level to another, depending on where they are in their learning.

Adaptive Placement Tests

After setting up your parent account and adding your students, you will have your students go through the adaptive placement tests. You could have them go through them one at a time, taking a placement test and then having them complete the lesson that the program designs to fill any gaps. Another option is to have your child go through all of the adaptive placement tests in a row, and then go back and do the necessary lessons. I had both my 2nd and 5th graders using the program and we opted to have them do one placement test at a time and then go over the lesson if needed.

I would highly recommend sitting with your child as they go through the tests in case they need some help. I found that with my own children, they were confused by some of the terminology that was different from what they were used to in their previous math program. The first time my 5th grader went through one of the tests he received a very low score. Because it was a topic that I knew he had already mastered, we went back over it together and I realized that he just needed some of the different terminology explained to him. Once he knew what the question was asking, he was able to fly through them and met the goal the program set for him to pass and skip the lessons for that topic.

Below you can see my son’s first attempt at a placement test, working alone, when he was confused about some of the terminology.

And here is the same test, after I sat with him and explained some of the terminology that he wasn’t used to seeing in his other math curriculum.

Video Lessons

After your child has completed a placement test where they haven’t met the goal score, the program designs a lesson for them to fill the gaps. The lessons are broken down into bite-sized sections, and your child can click through the lessons, working at their own pace. The lessons contain video lessons with colorful animation and clear explanations.

Online Worksheets

You can also generate online worksheets to go along with each lesson for your child to practice and reinforce what they are learning. If your child is having trouble, they can view the detailed solution to help them.

Parent Dashboard

The Parent dashboard allows you to set up your students, and also allows you to view their progress. Below you can see my 2nd grade daughters summary for some of the placement tests she had taken up to that point. You can also look into how they are progressing in their lesson plan, and how they are doing with the online worksheets.

The parent dashboard also gives you access to a video tutorial on how to use the program, and navigate both the parent and student dashboards. I recommend watching the tutorial, as it may be a bit confusing to navigate around for the first time without it.

Final Thoughts

After working through the program with both of my children I think it is a useful tool for finding the gaps in your child’s learning and giving them the opportunity to review and cement concepts they may be having trouble with. Although the placement tests may require supervision for younger students, the lessons are easily done independently by the student. As a homeschooling mom of multiply children, anything that can be done independently is a major plus in my books!

I’m not sure I would use it as a stand alone math curriculum, but it makes a great supplement and review tool! However, I think the Family Math Package might work better as a stand alone curriculum. Depending on your needs, either would make a great addition to your family’s homeschool.

Help Teaching Pro by HelpTeaching.com – Homeschool Review

Help Teaching Pro by HelpTeaching.com – Homeschool Review

As a homeschool mom I love anything that can help make our school day a little easier. So when I was offered a chance to review a one-year subscription to Help Teaching Pro from HelpTeaching.com I jumped at the opportunity!

The Help Teaching Pro subscription gives access to a plethora of lessons, worksheets and tests over a variety of subjects from preschool to grade 12. And if that wasn’t enough they also provide a test maker and worksheet generator so you can make your own!

One of the things we made great use of was the worksheet generator. It is super easy for me to customize math worksheets for both my 2nd grader and my 5th grader. A quick math drill sheet is a great way to get warmed up for our math lessons, or if we are short on time but still want to get in some math work. The worksheet generator allows you to choose the number of questions, the type of questions, and the number of digits in each question, and even give it a custom name. Then you can either save, print or download the worksheet for immediate or later use. My 5th grader actually asks to do the math worksheets, sometimes we add a timer and see how many questions he can complete in a set time, or time how long it takes to complete all of the questions. Then the next time around he can try to beat his previous score/time.

Another really neat feature we used is the pre-made lessons. You just choose the subject, topic and grade and then pick the lesson you’d like your child to complete. The lessons teach the concept with text, give practice questions and have a video to further explain the concept. There is often a related worksheet that is linked to the lesson as well. You can assign the lessons to your students, who can then complete the lesson online.

Then there is the tests and worksheets section. There are so many subjects and types of worksheets that I won’t even attempt to list them all, but trust me, you are sure to find ones that will work for your students! I particularly like the Language Arts worksheets. I’m always looking for more ways to get my kids writing, and HelpTeaching.com is full of them! There are even Graphic Organizer worksheets,Study Skills/Strategies worksheets and Vocational worksheets.

We will definitely continue to use the Help Teaching Pro subscription from HelpTeaching.com. It is such a great resource for supplementing your homeschool learning and takes all of the work out of making customized tests and worksheets. And for those days when you are super busy and it’s hard to teach a full lesson yourself, you can rest assured that the pre-made lessons and worksheets can fill in for you.

I highly recommend checking out Help Teaching Pro for yourself. I’m certain you will find it beneficial in your homeschool too!

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology from Apologia – Homeschool Review

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology from Apologia – Homeschool Review

Okay, so I am SUPER excited about this review! I’ve used Apologia before to teach Astronomy and I really liked how they lay out the lessons and include a lot of hands on activities and experiments to go along with what your learning. I just knew we were going to love their other topics as well!

Today I am reviewing Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology from Apologia. This included the following items:

First I want to talk to you about the textbook. This thing is laid out in such an awesome way. You know how some textbooks are all words and they are just so boring and monotonous to read? Well the Apologia textbooks are NOTHING like that! It is a beautiful hard covered text full of colorful pictures to go along with the lessons. There is nothing boring or monotonous about it!

At the front of the book is an introduction section that briefly explains how to use the book and gives a link and password to the course website. The website provides links to more resources for each lesson to further your learning. There is also a detailed list, broken down by lesson, of all the items you will need to complete the activities. Most of the items are every day things most of us will have around our homes already.

Throughout each lesson the text is broken down into manageable sections. There are a variety of Try This boxes mixed in that provide quick and easy activities to do. Dispersed through the lesson, at natural pauses in the reading, are questions printed in blue that give your child a chance to review and explain what they have learned so far. At the end of each lesson are three review sections: What Do You Remember?, Notebooking Activities, and Personal Person Project. There is also a larger project or experiment to wrap up each lesson with a great hands-on approach.

I also want to mention the audio CD that is available to go along with the textbook. It contains an audio recording by the author, Jeannie, of all the lessons. I don’t know about you, but I can get pretty tired of doing all the reading to my children through out the homeschool week. With the audio CD, I can pop it into the computer and turn on the audio for the lesson we’re on (the audio is broken up into small sections, so if you need to stop in the middle of a lesson, it is easy to resume later). The audio doesn’t read out the Try This sections, but does make note of them so that you can pause the audio to complete them, and then continue on. One thing that I really want to mention about the CD is that Jeannie’s voice is easy to listen to. It’s not some bland professor-type voice reading without expression. It actually sounds like a fun teacher reading to you, full of expression. This makes it so much easier to follow along and be engaged with the reading.

Lastly, but certainly not least are the notebooking journals. There are two versions, the regular Human Anatomy Notebooking Journal and the Junior Anatomy Notebooking Journal. The first is meant for children in upper elementary (grades 4-6) while the 2nd is geared towards lower elementary children (grades K-3). They are both fairly similar, but with the Junior version offers coloring pages and simpler versions of the various activities inside the notebooking journal.

For example, for lesson 2 the notebooks have a diagram of the skeletal system. The regular journal is blank, requiring the student to label the different bones on their own (using the reference diagram in the textbook). The junior journal points to the different bones and even gives the first letter of the bone name that is to be used, making it easier for younger ones to complete the same activity. You can see a comparison in the photo below. The page on the left is of the regular journal and the page on the right is the junior journal.

Another example, shown below, is a crossword puzzle. You can see the regular journal on the left has more words to use, and there are no hints given. In the junior journal on the right the puzzle uses fewer words and gives some hints by having some of the letters already filled in the puzzle.

Some other great features in the notebooking journals are:

  • Descriptions and instructions on how to use each page in the journal.
  • A suggested schedule for working through the lessons.
  • Answers to the vocabulary activities.
  • Field trip sheets.
  • Minibooks.
  • And Personal Person templates.

The quality and ease of use of Apologia’s science programs makes it an easy choice for homeschoolers. The different level notebooking journals makes it easy to use the same program with multiple age groups. I know that we will continue to choose them for all of our science needs as we continue on in our homeschooling years to come.

Carole P. Roman books and collections – A Homeschool Review

Carole P. Roman books and collections – A Homeschool Review

This week I will be reviewing three titles from the books and collections of Carole P. Roman.

Carole P. Roman is a very talented, award-winning children’s book author. She began writing as a dare from one of her son’s! Carole created Captain No Beard based off of an imaginary game she used to play with her grandson.

She has won many awards for her books, far too many to name them all. But a few of them are the Kirkus Star of Exceptional Merit, the NABE Pinnacle Award, the IAN Award, the Moonbeam Award 2014, the National Indie Excellence Award Finalist, and the Shelf Media Outstanding Series Award.

She has since created a number of collections and book series including:

  • Captain No Beard
  • Oh Susannah
  • Bedtime Stories
  • If You Were Me And Lived In…..  An Introduction To Ancient Civilizations Through Time
  • If You Were Me And Lived In…..  A Child’s Introduction To Cultures Around The World

These books are packed full of great facts and information and are beautifully illustrated! Educational children’s books can be such a fun way to explore history and cultures or even just to practice reading.
We received 3 books from the If You Were Me And Lived In….. An Introduction To Ancient Civilizations Through Time collection to add to our home library. Without further ado, let’s dive a little deeper in to these books to see what they’re all about!

If You Were Me and Lived in . . . Viking Europe

The book If You Were Me and Lived in… Viking Europe has 76 pages which includes the main story itself, a list of some Norse Gods, information about some important Vikings in History and a glossary of terms. The pages are beautifully illustrated in an almost cartoon-like style which really catches the attention of my children.

The story is chalk full of fun facts about Viking Europe! For instance, if you were born into a viking family you would be part of one of three classes,  Jarls, Karls or Thralls. Of course the book goes into more detail, describing the different classes. And did you know that vikings gave their guests ale in cups made from animal horns with a pointed bottom? This made it so they either had to drink it all at once or pass their vessel around. We also learned that a viking child would call their mother Moder (mo-der) and that dagmal (dag-mal) was what they called their morning meal.

If You Were Me and Lived in . . . the Middle Ages

The next book that we read was If You Were Me and Lived in the Middle Ages. This one is a whopping 97 pages! Twelve of those pages are a glossary of terms! Did you know that a fletcher (flech-er) was a person who made arrows or that a small tear-dropped shaped string instrument is called a mandore (man-dor)?

The book describes how if you lived in the middle ages, you might live in a motte and bailey castle that your father built, complete with a gatehouse and drawbridge. Did you know that salt was an important and expensive item at that time? If your place at the dining table was near the salt it indicated that you were more important than other people in the household. We all found that very interesting and something we hadn’t learned yet in our study of the middle ages.
Peasants were at the bottom of society and lived in simple huts made from a wooden frame filled with a plaster of animal hair and a clay called wattle and daub.

If You Were Me and Lived in . . . Renaissance Italy

The last book that we had the pleasure of reading is If You Were Me and Lived in… Renaissance Italy. This book is a little smaller than the other two at 54 pages, but still contains so many interesting facts about Renaissance Italy. There is a different illustrator for this book than the previous two, but it still maintains a similar cartoon-like style that our family really enjoys.

Just like the other two books, this one does not disappoint! We discovered some really neat information about renaissance Italy. Some common names for girls were Docle (dohl-chey) and Lisabetta (liz-a-bet-ta). Common boys names were Lorenzo (luh-renz-oh) and Cosimo (coh-zi-mo). We learned about the Medici family and how they owned the largest bank in Europe and supported famous artists. We found it both neat and weird that children drank ale or watered wine with their meals. Everyone knew that drinking water was very dangerous and that you could get all kinds of illnesses from it! The book also talks about why the Renaissance was so important in art and  tells of famous people from that time. And, of course, there is a glossary of terms which is fun to read through as well.

Our whole family really enjoyed these books and how they made learning about ancient civilizations more fun. Because of their length, we didn’t get through them in just one sitting. The kids would ask to read more at bed time, and would beg for one more page before we put the bookmark in! These are winners in our house and have earned their own spots on the bookshelf.

So whether you are studying these time periods, or just want some fun and educational books to read with your family, I highly recommend any and all of Carole P. Romans books!

Home School in the Woods – A Homeschool Review

Home School in the Woods – A Homeschool Review

Did you know that learning about history can actually be pretty fun?

Well it can! We have been playing some of the file folder games from Home School in the Woods. They now offer many of their hands-on history projects Á La Carte.

We chose two different file folder games to review: Mercenary Madness! and Journey Through the Middle Ages, both at a very reasonable price of $4.95. They are both geared toward children in grades 3 to 8. We used them with my 2nd grader and 5th grader as they are both studying this time period in our homeschool right now!

Journey Through the Middle Ages

The first game we used was Journey Through the Middle Ages. It comes as a neatly organized pdf file with full instructions on what supplies will be needed, how to print the pages (some are better to print on card stock) and how to assemble them.

Then we set off cutting out, gluing and coloring all the different components. This is a really neat part about these file folder games. Not only do you end up with a fun game to play together, but the kids get to actually make and put it together themselves (with a little help from mom).

After getting it all put together we read through the game instructions and started playing. Some of the questions were a bit tough for my 2nd and 5th graders as we haven’t covered all of the material in our personal studies yet. I went through the question cards and picked out ones they would know, or at least had a better chance of guessing at. We also threw in a couple of the harder ones for fun, and I just gave hints as needed.

The players move around the map, making their way to the different castles. At each castle, they collect a castle card. The first one to collect all the different castle cards wins!

The more we played the game, the more they started to remember the answers. It’s a really neat way to learn history trivia while feeling like play!

Both children asked to play again and again. They enjoyed the friendly competition between the two of them, and I enjoyed that they were learning something!

Mercenary Madness!

The next item we chose was Mercenary Madness! It is also a file folder style game, with the setup instructions being fairly similar to the first game. Print, color, cut and paste.

The questions in this one were a bit more challenging, as we haven’t quite gotten that far in our studies yet. But I was still able to find a good number of the questions that they have learned about, and gave hints for the others.

In this game they collect coins as they move around the board. There are Spoils and Spoilers squares, and depending on how they answer the trivia questions, they can collect or lose coins. They had a lot of fun with this game too!

The game ends when both players make it to the battlefield. The winner is determined by who has the most coins at the end. My daughter was so excited that she beat her big brother by just two coins!

More fun while learning about history!

Home School in the Woods has many other Á La Carte items available on their website. They range in price from $1.95 to $9.95, which is quite an affordable way to add a little fun to your studies if you ask me.

Of course we weren’t able to try them all for this review, but there are a couple of other ones that look really fun that I might like to try out in the future.

The Jamestown Replica would be so much fun for any young builder in your family.

The Art Of Quilling would be great for children (or even adults) who are more artistic.

CursiveLogic – A Homeschool Review

CursiveLogic – A Homeschool Review

Hello there! It’s time for another homeschool review!

We’ve been pretty busy during the last few months trying out different homeschooling products to share with you, and it’s been a lot of fun! This week we will be looking at the CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack and The Art of Cursive from the wonderful people over at CursiveLogic.

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to open the mail and find these waiting for me in all their beautiful glory! (Does it make me sound weird to be so excited over homeschool things? Haha!) But before even receiving the books in the mail, I received an email with a link to an instructional webinar that explains the CursiveLogic method step by step for parents.

I thought this was wonderful! I was able to watch through the webinar and see exactly how I am supposed to work through the book with my son. So once the books did arrive, we were ready to dive right in, knowing exactly how to get started!

I decided to use CursiveLogic with my 11 year old son who is in 5th grade. He’s certainly seen cursive writing before, but has never written in cursive. I’ve always know that I want my children to learn cursive in our homeschool, but it always seemed like a daunting task and so I had been putting it on the back burner. Well there is no excuse now! CursiveLogic has fallen into our laps, and it looked like a clear and concise program to use.

CursiveLogic has a wonderful approach for learning cursive to work for kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learners. It teaches the lowercase cursive alphabet by breaking them up into four groups based on shape. Each group is taught together, using tracing, a catch-phrase, and writing the letter grouping (or string, as CursiveLogic calls it) on your own. I really like this approach. Rather than trying to teach each letter individually, students are learning them in groups, and seeing, right from the beginning, how the letters connect together. There are even dry erase pages at the end of the book so your child can practice their cursive again and again!

As you can see from the picture above, the workbook is bound at the top edge rather than the sides. With side-bound books my son usually struggles with the binding being in his way when he turns the page over. With CursiveLogic we don’t have that problem, they’ve really thought of everything!

Here are some before and during photos of my sons writing. The before sample is what his printing usually looks like. You can see that his letter sizes aren’t the same, and in the bottom line he hasn’t left space between his words. Often times he will also have what I like to call “floating” letters, where some are high and others are low.

Now you can see, after just a couple of weeks in he was already showing great progress with his cursive. No more floating letters, his letter size and spacing is improving too. I don’t doubt that it will get even neater as we continue to work through the different letter strings and he has more practice.

We also received The Art of Cursive, which is cursive instruction artfully woven into an adult coloring book! How neat is that?! Now it’s not designed to teach cursive to children, there just isn’t enough instruction for that. But it would easily help a teen or adult to learn and practice cursive. Or for those that already know cursive but like to color, it’s a great tool to really cement those cursive strokes. I have been having fun with it, using it as a nice relaxing activity once the house has quieted down for the evening, or before the kids are up in the morning. I think it could also be used as good practice tool for a young one who likes to color and draw, after they’ve already been through the workbook.

As a little bonus to our readers, CursiveLogic has given us a special discount for you!  Using the code CREW2018, you can save 20% on the Quick-Start Pack, which is the webinar + workbook combo.  The code will be active through the end of March. Enjoy!

The Art of Cursive & Quick Start Cursive {Cursive Logic Reviews}
The Starfall Home Membership – A Homeschool Review

The Starfall Home Membership – A Homeschool Review

Hi there fellow parents and homeschoolers! Today I want to share with you my review of The Starfall Home Membership from the Starfall Education Foundation.

So You Might Be Wondering, What Is The Starfall Home Membership?

The Starfall Home Membership is a yearly subscription that unlocks hundreds of fun, educational activities for children from Pre-K to 2nd grade. Children can learn essential reading and math skills through play with animated songs, mathematics, and reading activities.You can get this low-cost membership program for only $35/year.

The program can be accessed via your computer/laptop or through the app on a tablet. I love that there are two options! When we are at home it’s nice to be able to pull up the website on the laptop which has a bigger screen. When we are on the go I can bring up the app on the tablet for the kids to use while out waiting for an appointment or running errands. And the tablet is much easier to hand over to my toddler, without worrying that he might find a way to wreck my laptop!

How have we been using Starfall?

My youngest two children have both been using Starfall. My 7 year old daughter is in grade two, and although we find some of the material to be too young for her, there are still plenty of activities for her to have fun with. She has been reading some of the short stories as well as practicing her addition and subtraction facts.

In the center of the home page you will find a character smiling back at you. Your child can change the appearance of the character to suit their likes, or even to resemble themselves! My daughter loves this type of thing and set to work straight away to pick out a hair style and clothing for her new friend. I think this is a really cute way to add a personal touch to the program.

I also have a 2 year old who may not quite be pre-k age, but he still really loves to explore through the Starfall app on our tablet. He clicks through the alphabet and colors and enjoys all the fun songs too! Whenever he is using the app all I hear are squeals of excitement and adorable giggles!

Starfall also provides a Parent-Teacher area. This is where you will find a bunch of helpful resources on how to use Starfall, such as a complete guide to using Starfall for different ages and subjects. There are also many supplemental resources to use along side the Starfall website/app. From ELA and Math worksheet generators, to custom printables and downloads, you will be sure to find something that will complement your child’s learning experience.

Would I recommend Starfall?

Absolutely! If you have children in the target age range of Pre-K to 2nd grade Starfall would make an excellent addition to their learning. My kids are always wanting to use technology in their play, whether it is the computer or a tablet. I’m glad that there is an educational option available for them. It gives more purpose to using electronics, which is a big factor in my decisions on which games/programs to purchase and use with them.

How can you get The Starfall Home Membership?

You can visit The Starfall Home Membership page at the Starfall Education Foundation website and become a member today!

Ultrakey Online Family Subscription | A Homeschooler Review

Ultrakey Online Family Subscription | A Homeschooler Review

In today’s world our children are surrounded by computers and technology. Learning how to type proficiently has become an expected part of educating our children. Even some preschool aged children are using tablets and other tech devices on a daily basis now!

So where does a homeschooling parent start when it’s time to teach and solidify good typing habits? Look no further, because I’m going to tell you all about a great typing program that we had the chance to use recently.
Let me introduce you to my new favorite typing program: UltraKey Online Family Subscription from Bytes of Learning.

There are a few different options to choose from, including: personal use, family use and classroom use. For this review we were given access to the 1-yr Online Family Subscription. A free parent account is included, and from there you can choose how many student accounts you’d like (3, 5 or 8). Depending on the number of students, the cost ranges from $29.95 to $49.95 which, in my opinion is very reasonable as it works out to roughly $10 or less per student account.

During our review I had both my 7 yr old and my 11 yr old using the program. Both of them really enjoyed the program right from the beginning. They would work through a lesson and a skill check each day, which amounted to about 20-30 minutes per day. Their main focus was on accuracy this time around, but I plan to have them work towards improving their speed once they have completed the beginner level.

One of the great things about UltraKey is that it can be used by pretty much anyone, beginners to advanced users. You can set your own goals or have the program set them for you. There is even a placement test you can take to find out where you’re at and what your goals should be.

To get started students will learn proper keyboarding posture and where to place their hands. My 7 yr old went through these lessons as she is a beginner at typing, but my 11 yr old decided to skip them as he has been typing for some time now and has the posture/hand placement thing down pat. After that they worked through the different lessons, each followed by a skill check to see how they are progressing.

There are many settings that you can adjust to better suit each student. You can enable or disable back spacing, adjust the transparency of the model hands in the lessons, and even change the background image!
I loved that we had so much control over how we used the program. I was able to tailor the program to each of my children, rather than be forced to use “cookie-cutter” settings.

During the lessons students are encouraged to take a break and stretch. My children both found this fun and would get up out of their chairs to stretch, usually followed by a few giggles after I would ask what they were doing. “It told me to do it”, laughed my daughter.

When they aren’t working on their lessons or skill checks, they can visit the games section. The games help them to practice their typing while being a little more interesting than the lessons. I’m not sure either of my children would consider them exciting games, but more like fun practice. Either way, it is a nice change of pace to break up the lessons and practice what they are learning.

I really appreciate the parent dashboard where I can view the progress of each of my children and see how they are improving. As they finish the lessons they are congratulated with a completion certificate that you can print out and present to them. My 11 year old was eager to have his certificate printed out as it gave him something physical to show his accomplishments.

I would definitely recommend this program to anyone wanting to teach typing to their children, or even to improve their own skills. Anything that my kids can use without complaint is a winner in my book! Both of them are happy to do their daily lesson when I ask them, and there are no moans or groans about it!
