Happy May! May is our last month of "regular" school for us, so we only have a few weeks left of our core curriculum, but we are going to still be using review products through the month and summer! It's time for another check in on what we've got in house for review products. Since my last check in, I've added our reviews for Music Appreciation 1, Princess Cut (a movie), Exploring Human Anatomy/Physiology, A+ Interactive Math, Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Storybook Life Unit Study, Media Enhanced Books from Weigl Publishers, and Online Computer Programming Class from CodeWizardsHQ--did you check them out yet? In house, we have art curriculum, books, workbooks, unit studies, and more! Let's see what's coming up!


1. Reading Kingdom
Are you looking for a comprehensive online reading program? One that assesses your child's skills and places them in the right level for reading, typing, spelling, and writing? Then keep your eyes out for my upcoming review of Reading Kingdom. This program teaches kids 4-10 how to read and write with comprehension at a
3rd grade level (Lexile 750). Needless to say that was ideal for my 7 year old who is in between 2nd and 3rd grade right now. How will this compare to some of the other online reading programs we've worked with? Make sure you come and check our review when it goes LIVE the week of May 7th, 2018.

2. Books from Kayla Jarmon
A collection of three digital books (A Boy and His Dog, Dying is Part of This World, and Don't Forget Me) to read with my boys. Review goes LIVE the week of May 8th, 2018.

3. Kids Email
My boys were both thrilled to have Kids Email back to review! They are both really into typing, and have been wanting to start sending emails again to their relatives and friends. I like the fact that this program promises to keep their email information safe and free from advertisers or other data buyers--also allowing me to see what comes in and out of their accounts! I am curious to see if any changes have been made since we last reviewed it. Make sure to check out our review when it goes LIVE the week of May 14, 2018!

4. Home School Navigator
Over the last several weeks, we have been reviewing Home School Navigator--a Language Arts curriculum for elementary. i was fortunate to meet the creators of this resource at the GHC in Cincinnati back in April. I was thrilled to learn more about it and get started. We've been using the green level with my 7 year old. We are currently starting our 4th week and we will be starting our interactive notebook this week! My review for this curriculum will be going LIVE the week of May 22,2018.

There will also be reviews on PandaParents and Reformed Free Publishing by other members of my review crew!


5. Something Fishy at Lake Iwannafisha (The Critical Thinking Co.)
The Critical Thinking Co. is a best selling publisher for workbooks and products that promote...critical thinking! LOL. We've reviewed some of their excellent material in the past, and we are doing it again. This time we are reviewing a detective style book. My son will work as a police detective to solve this fun and engaging crime mystery. The book and activities teaches basic forensic information and how it is used to solve crimes. Using the lessons and his brain, my son will then have to work through the mystery to determine who committed the crimes. This is a great workbook for us heading into our summer break! My review will be going LIVE the week of June 4th, 2018.

6. New American Cursive 2 (Memoria Press)
We are thrilled to have another Memoria Press product in house. This time it is the New American Cursive 2 (Scriptures) to use with my youngest son (age 7). It is for children who already have basic cursive skills that just need "refined". I am curious to see how my son improves with this book. My review will be going LIVE the week of June 5th, 2018.

7. ARTistic Pursuits Full Video Lessons by ARTistic Pursuits
My youngest son is MOST excited with this review product. He's been bugging me and bugging me to work on it. We are reviewing a book from the NEW line of art curriculum by ARTistic Pursuits. This line has full video lessons to with the book! We are doing the Art of the Middle Ages book. My review will be going LIVE the week of June 11, 2018

8. White House Holidays Unit Studies by Silverdale Press
We are going to be reviewing a series of Unit Studies from the White House Holidays Unit Studies from Silverdale Press. There are 6 unit studies in this product, but we will be focusing on two of them: Labor Day and Veterans Day. Our review will go LIVE the week of June 19, 2018.

I am also doing two additional reviews for the TOS Magazine's blog. These won't be available for my own blog, until I've been given the release to do so. We are reviewing Summer Brain Quest-Get ready for 3rd Grade (consumable workbook), and Big Picture Bible Crafts: 101 Simple and Amazing Crafts to Help Teach Children the Bible (reproducible book). I am hoping to have my reviews on these available towards the end of June--first of July!

See anything that strikes your fancy? Not all of these are homeschool related--especially these last two at the bottom. I look forward to finishing our reviews on all of these and sharing them with you! There are some that we love, and some that we are okay with, and some that we could pass. Which will they be?
