The holidays are over and we got back into the swing of our routine yesterday, gently. From last week's lesson in Terri Johnson's "Homeschooling ABCs" e-class, I printed a few stories from a living book download she offered as a freebie, and my daughter and I began reading them together. I continue to enjoy this six month long e-class and the helpful quick-links to information that I need plus the freebies that are included with every lesson!

I have been considering a purchase of a kitchen gadget after friend Amy posted about hers, here: http://settingofsilver.blogspot.com/2008/07/my-new-favorite-kitchen-tool.html

I have two items that we are using that will have reviews due soon:

All About Homophones


two of Write Shop's Story Builders, which I received as part of the TOS Homeschool Crew of reviewers *after* Write Shop sent me the free mini-story builder w/ a holiday theme, in their e-newsletter.

And, it's like Christmas after Christmas! I learned in the past few days that I'll be using/reviewing three more items (and maybe a fourth):

Math Tutor dvds - an Algebra 2 dvd, and a Word Problem dvd

something from Bible Story Songs


a book from Artistic Pursuits

and possibly something from David and Melinda Boring at Heads Up! I read Melinda's book, oh, two or three years ago. She's a speech therapist who homeschooled a child that sounded very similar a child I know on the autism spectrum. I'm hoping that even though I am an alternate on the TOS Homeschool Crew of reviewers, that I will be blessed to use and review something from Heads Up! If you have a child with unique learning needs, whether you're a homeschooler or not, check out the web site.

Penny, I am VERY intrigued by the Math Tutor DVD's. I really wanted to buy Teaching Textbooks, but they are too expensive for me. I think Math Tutor DVD's might be the answer
I am anxious to me know what you think. Rhonda
