I can’t believe another Crew Year has come to an end. Emma and I so enjoy being a part of this team! I found out last night that I will be on the Crew next year, as well. I’m so excited!
Each year, the Crew ends the year by voting for their favorite products in a large variety of categories. This year, Emma and I had the opportunity to review some stellar products. We have actually integrated many of them into our daily school schedule. Many of our favorite products also won Blue Ribbon Awards this year.
Favorite Writing Curriculum: Institute for Excellence in Writing I had IEW on my radar for many years before it became available for review. I wasn’t sure how Emma would respond to it, but I really wanted to give it a try. I am so thankful that I did. She is enjoying the program still, and I look forward to watching her writing grow!
Favorite Language Arts Curriculum: Moving Beyond the Page Last school year, we reviewed the Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH unit study, and we were hooked. I love that the units have creative writing and hands-on activities as well as literature studies about topic, setting, plot, etc. We are about to wrap up our third unit from MBTP, and we are already looking forward to #4.
Favorite Math Resource: Math Rider Emma really enjoyed this online math review game. I think it helped her get quicker with her math facts which, in turn, helps her complete her math lessons more efficiently.
Favorite Christian Education Curriculum: Bible Study Guide for All Ages After reviewing this product, Emma asked to continue using it throughout the school year. I love these pages are really helping her dig deeper into the word of God.
Favorite Parent Resource: Picaboo This was one of my all-time favorite reviews. The kids and I still enjoy looking through the Disney World scrapbook I made for us.
