Math Mammoth Review

Posted by Orilla on 23rd June and posted in Reviews

This is a terrific math product for grades 1-7. The worksheets are cute, colorful and fun. You can either get them downloadable and or on CD.

As a mother that has a special needs child I have really fallen in love with this setup because it has short lessons, are fun and if the child doesn’t pick it up immediately they will go over each new item to be learned, so you can have several pages to work with. It is also in pdf format so that you can print off the book as many times and you need. This comes highly recommend!

If you aren’t for sure where your child should start in Math Mammoth they have a placement test that you can give at http://www.mathmammoth.com/complete/placement_tests.php. Get yours today at http://www.mathmammoth.com/packages.php. Make sure to check out the special discounts.

Thanks for a awesome product.

Review of Sightwords.com

Posted by Orilla on 29th April and posted in Reviews

This is an awesome website! All students would benefit from this, but especially the special needs children that struggle with putting sounds together and making words. I have been using this with my own special needs son lately and LOVE it!!! Why?

They have put together words for Pre-k through 3rd grade. There is a page with all the words so you have a list of them and then they have made it where you can print them out in a flash card and laminate them so they won’t wear out. You can also customize your words. Don’t know how to teach them to your child? No problem they have a whole section on how to teach them in different ways.

Another awesome thing that they do on their site is to have all sorts of games to play with your child to help them learn the words. Games like Bingo, Snakes and Ladders, Fly Swat, Fishing, Go Fish, Memory, Bean Bag Toss, Parking Lot, Pathways, Old Maid, Book Land, Dominoes and Christmas Activities.

My son loves playing these games and even though he is still struggling it makes it a lot more fun for him and we know that he will eventually be able to read because of this program. Check it out for yourself! It is FREE and I think you will agree. Go to http://www.sightwords.com to see it for yourself.

This audiobook is one of three book that Jim Hodges has done by Amy Puetz. Amy is a homeschool graduate and author and I love reading her works but with her writing and hearing Jim Hodges read them, the book takes on a whole new outlook. This audiobook has almost 10 hours worth on it.

This audiobook has 10 adventures that played a big part in history. A few of them that you will hear about is David Livingstone, Herman Cortez and John Paul Jones. This audiobook is geared towards boys but you will find that your girls will love the adventures these men go through. Both our kids, teen daughter and mentally handicpapped son loved these adventures.

This audiobook is available at http://jimhodgesaudiobooks.com/amypuetz_ten_great_adventurers.html in either mp3 CD format or by digital download. I’m sure you will love it as much as we did!
