Thinkfun Roll and Play Board Game thumbnail

We have had the Thinkfun Roll and Play game in our house for a couple of years now. I got it for Ladybug when she was just a wee toddler. It has been a delightful addition to our homeschool days. When we pull this game out, we all get involved. Even though it is a [...]

Color-By-Number Worksheets from Mama’s Learning Corner – Review thumbnail

My kindergartener did not really like to color until the last couple of weeks. He does love to paint and he enjoys art time. But simple coloring did not appeal to him.

Although most Christians believe in the importance of memorizing the Bible, many of us find it difficult to do.  This is a problem, because as Christian homeschoolers our main task is to teach our children about the Lord, and that includes memorizing his Word.  Lately our family has been using Scripture Stickies, a unique and [...]
