Though I was hesitant about my daughter taking a detailed two semester science course online, I took a leap of faith and registered her for Mrs. Mackin's General Science course. I am so glad I did! Mrs. Mackin is a fantastic teacher. She is well versed in science, but explains concepts in an easy to understand manner.
It is obvious that Mrs. Mackin loves the subject matter and enjoys teaching it. Consequently, she eagerly and thoroughly responds to student inquiries during class and geniunely cares about her students' progress. Mrs. Mackin runs a well organized class and she maintains excellent communication with students and parents alike. My daughter has already registered for her next class. I highly recommend Mrs. Mackin's courses! ...
This is a fun game to add into a unit on earning to tel time. Learning in a hands on way is always fun for my children. This publisher produces cute products that children will want to return to time and time again.
My daughter wanted to learn about dogs this summer and I wanted her to learn cursive - this was the perfect product. My kindergartener wanted her own handwriting assignments and this product had print as well so I didn't have to purchase two products!
Dd has requested we do a unit study on the sun, so this copywork seemed well suited to the topic. She just learned cursive this year. I am so pleased that I can offer her several different formats to choose from. The pictures of St. Francis at the end are gorgeous, as well as informative, since titles, artists and dates are given. If you have multiple kids, it will work well across a wide age range. This is an excellent product.
This is such an amazing resource for the busy homechool mom. I love the way that it is laid out, day by day. All the prep work is done for you. This covers so much more than just literature! We will be on the look out for more of this publishers units in the near future.
If you need a way to teach children more about sharks this would make a great choice . The graphics were very cute and colorful. This is a great product to help children learn to research. It was simple to put together and easy to implement in to our school day. The pages can be used in a wide variety of ways and with a wide age range of students.
Very happy with the product. I was looking for a list of homeschool preschool ideas that I could easily do without much planning or a schedule. This provides that and more! Letter sheets/coloring pages are just enough. Activities are as simple or complex as you want to make them. There is also a section of weeks all planned out for you if you want something more straightforward and organized. I wish I would have paid more....easily worth $20-$30 dollars for a whole year of preschool!
This is a great way to learn more about World War 2. A wide variety of activities are included in the download. The worksheets are so simple to incorporate into your school day! They truly are download and go items. So many great ideas are in this packet!
This was a giant waste of money. It presents almost no information, and the "lessons" are nothing you couldn't do on your own. ("look up a poet and learn about them" is one of the lessons. Like, that's the entire lesson.) Several of the links are no longer functional.
This lapbook is extremely well done as are all the lapbooks are that I have purchased from Hands of a Child. Their breakdown of the events during this period is done so well and at a child's level. I even get a better understanding of the events with their explanation. As always, a schedule is included as well as suggested and related reading. A very well done summary of Ancient Civilizations. Thanks ladies for a constant supply of these wonderful products.
I've been purchasing lapbooks from this company since they started and always find superior quality. I love the schedule, the book suggestions, the recipes. It was definitely an eye opener for my kids to see how life was during that time. The instructions spelled it out very well at a childs level. Well done, ladies. I'm a forever customer.
I've been purchasing lapbooks from this company since they started and always find superior quality. I love the schedule, the book suggestions, the recipes, and how insight is given for the Christian perspective on this book. I very much loved that they gave a summary of each chapter in the event that the teacher wasn't able to read the book. Well done, ladies. I'm a forever customer.
In my opinion, this is the best historical cookbook I've gotten for my kinetic learning son. It's helped us wonderfully with ancient history so far and I'm looking forward to using it as we continue "time traveling" through history. We like to finish up each section of our lessons with a meal like they would have eaten in that period. I appreciate the information included about the farming, eating habits of the peoples, and how other foods were brought to the area we are learning about at the beginning of each section. About the only thing I was dissappointed with is that there are only two recipes on average for each period and sometimes only one per country. Since we make a meal, we usually have to find additional recipes for our menu. Don't get me wrong, this is a great cookbook to help us get started! I'm looking forward to using this cookbook as we continue our travels through world history....
