Schoolhouse Review Crew: Science 4 Us Online

It is a heavy "review" kind of week! So today I am reviewing the online subscription for the Schoolhouse Review Crew. The Square-in-the-Middles (Bruiser and Buttercup mainly) have really gotten a lot out of kids shows that are geared towards teaching science. I don't have a simple science program for them to work on so really appreciated having the chance to review Science4Us when it came around!
Science4Us Review
This program is geared towards kids in Kindergarten through second grade, and can also be used as an early science review by kids in third through fifth. We used it with Buttercup (K/1) and Bruiser (3rd). The older kids didn't look at it; Mr. Magoo (2 years old) looked on while they worked. And they love this program!!

Homeschool Review Crew: KinderBach Review

So! My first homeschool review post of the year - KinderBach Online Piano Lesson Membership and Teacher Corner. My hope in applying to review this program was that I would be able to temporarily "replace" the fantastic piano teacher we had when we lived in Baltimore. 

Kinderbach Review
I know that no program will likely ever replace a good live instructor, but I wanted to get something in place to keep them from losing the skills they gained while with Mrs. Diane. In Baltimore we had only an electric keyboard for the kids to practice on; once we moved to Virginia, we had space and ability to get a decent wall piano off of Craigslist… and then had no teacher.

Featured Product Friday: Diffusers

I thought I'd take a bit of time this morning to talk about some of the lesser-known products that Young Living sells. Perhaps I'll make it an every Friday deal, but I don't know yet. For now - it's just Featured Product Friday - and today we're doing Diffusers. 

There are FIVE diffusers and a resin burner that Young Living sells and then you can get others from outside sources. A couple of notes on the diffusers: you don't want to heat your oils because it affects the therapeutic quality of the oils. I have used Thieves in my tea and still gained relief from a sore throat, so it does not completely eliminate the help you may find in using oils, but it does affect the quality somewhat.
