Visiting the Crew Family
We’re back with more great reviews to share!
Becky from Purposeful Homemaking shares about a book that made an important impact on her homeschool mama heart.
This book was honestly the turning point for me in homeschooling. After one year of it I just wasn’t sure if I could do it too much longer. After reading this book though, I knew it was about more than just teaching academics to our children and God confirmed in my heart that we were making the right choice. No longer was I going to say to my son, “next year you’re going to school!” Homeschooling is what God has called us to at this time in our lives.
What homeschool family doesn’t use games from time to time to spice up or enhance their home learning? Christine at Our Homeschool Reviews tells us about Wits & Wagers.
From the manufacturer:
First, every player writes down a guess to a fun question. Then players try to score points by choosing which guess is closest to the right answer without going over. That is it!
The game features 300 new family-friendly questions. And even better than that, Wits & Wagers Family includes Meeples– fun, cute, human shaped wooden pieces that the players use to select which answers they think are correct.
April from Eclectic Montage discusses an important product for high school homeschoolers.
As homeschoolers, we know that our SAT scores are going to be very important to college admissions. Colleges may or may not give credence to our student’s grades, but they will look at the test scores to see if their abilities correspond with what we say they can do.
Additionally, SAT and PSAT tests are critical for those students seeking scholarships. Colleges offer merit awards based on these scores. The higher the score, the more likely it is that your student will be offered monies to attend school.
With each of my children, I have purchased the College Board SAT Study Guide. Used alone, I found it to be difficult for my kids to get into. The practice tests are invaluable, but the content isn’t very helpful. Along comes College Prep Genius. Using this College Board guide (as recommended with this program) along with a workbook, text and DVD’s, not only are the types of problems identified, but test taking strategies are covered.
Thanks for sharing, ladies!
