Two of my favorite topics to study are history and religion. So when I was presented with the opportunity to review the Association of Religion Data Archives (ADRA) website, I said, “Yes, please!” As always when I do reviews, I was compensated for my time, but all opinions are my own and I was not required to post a positive perspective.
Okay, I am going to say right up front I am going to gush a tiny bit about this website. It’s SO COOL. This is like the promised land for … Read more »
With a learner who prefers video and learning online to just about anything else, I’m always on the lookout for new sites she can explore. Here’s a list of online learning activities for kids.

NOAA (North Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has a free downloadable Discover Your World Activity Book for children.
It is full of hands-on activities related to science topics such as the earth, weather and climate. These would be especially good for upper elementary and middle school students.

I received a one year subscription to always-icecream.com in exchange for my review. All content and opinions are my own (except the video produced by Always Icecream).
Caroline loves to learn via technology and we have used many websites over the years as part of our homeschooling. So when another blogger mentioned Always Icecream for her daughters I thought I should check it out! We’ve been using it for a few weeks and today I’m going to introduce you to Always Icecream. I’ll follow up with another post in a few months to give you an update … Read more »
I received this product for free and was compensated for my time. The opinions are my own and I was not required to provide a positive review.
My, how times have changed! When I learned to type it was on an actual typewriter in a high school classroom filled with loud machines. We used whiteout, manually counted our words per line, and turned in actual typewritten papers to our teacher.
We certainly didn’t get to play games, earn fun badges, and follow along with pirate stories from the comfort of our own home!
Such are the advantages Caroline has learning typing today!

We thoroughly enjoy learning about the International Space Station (ISS). I keep track of when it will be flying over our home and if it works out with bedtimes, we’ll go out in front of the house and watch it go over.
By using NASA’s simple Spot the Station feature, you can use the pull down menus to find the next flyover closest to your home.
Now not only can you see it when it flies over, you can see what it is flying over! This live HD Earth Viewing feature lets you watch live streaming from the International Space … Read more »
Caroline loves to learn via technology and she prefers to learn on her own. We allowed her to start using the computer when she was nearing age five (if I remember correctly). Along the way, I’ve collected quite a few bookmarks of educational websites we’ve used to varying degrees and a few we’ll use in the future when she’s ready for them. I’ve also included below some we learned about after the fact that are geared toward younger children. I’m sure someone else can use them!
We still tend to use the laptop for learning as opposed to the Read more »
