Katy and the Big Snow | FI♥AR with Bo

2/10/2017
-Bo is 6 years old-


Proverbs 31:17 says, “She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.” We decided that was a good verse for Katy in Katy and the Big Snow when we first rowed it. She works hard to plow the city so the city officials can do their jobs. She goes North, South, East and West to shovel each department out. . .

Times Alive | Review

Times Tables the Fun Way {Review}
Times Alive is a series of "online lessons with animated songs and stories to learn times tables the fun way."

The program teaches the memorization of multiplication facts through stories and songs. It is interactive and multisensory. Stories and songs have visual and audio clues, but the program also has kids using their fingers to learn number tricks.

Math facts are one of those things that just have to be committed to memory, so I thought this would be a fun, quick, and easy way to have my children practice the times tables for 20 minutes per day, twice a week. I thought the online aspect with games and quizzes would be motivating and fun for my children, Eliana (10) and Boaz (6).
