Bonnie Terry Learning

Before working with the Homeschool Crew, I had never heard of Bonnie Terry Learning.  I’ll assume that you have not as well, and try to give a brief description …
Bonnie Terry is a Board Certified Education Therapist who started Bonnie Terry Learning in 1992 as a way to help share her learning support materials with teachers and parents around the world!  Ms. Terry says, Our philosophy is that all students can learn; they just need the tools and the encouragement to find their wings to reach their goals. And we have results to prove that this is true.

Several members of our Crew have received a variety pack of materials from Bonnie Terry Learning for their review.  These items include the following:

  1. Have to tell you, playing the Sentence Zone game got kind of wild and wacky, with three people scrambling for cards at once, trying to build the longest, most complex, most entertaining sentence possible!

    See my review at the Mr. Linky for more comments on the Zone and the Writer's Reference Guide.

  2. I would have loved to have read your review, but was unable to because the font on her is so small and the color does not lend iteself to be easily read. Hoping this can be changed because I am currently looking at this curriculum and am in need of getting some well rounded reviews.

    Thanks much!
