About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Curiosity Files- Red Tides review

I was recently given the wonderful opportunity to review The Curiosity Files Red Tide E-book!

I love Science so this was a true pleasure for me! The Curiosity Files has many different E-books to choose from and they are wonderful for home schooling as well as a way to supplement learning during the summer months.

The Curiosity Files are designed for children 8-13 (which is perfect for my girls!) but it can easily be adapted to younger/older siblings. They even have activities for children with special needs so there is something for everyone! I loved that! Each study is between 80-100 pages and are available from The Old Schoolhouse Store.

The Red Tide study was fascinating. The pictures were gorgeous and the activities were very user friendly. In other words, very easy on Mom! There 91 pages included Science, Spelling, History, Copy work, Writing activities, Math, and Geography. There were even fun activities and ideas for reinforcing what you learned! How many curriculums include a board game? This one did!:)

We used The Curiosity Files Red Tides to supplement our Ocean Animals study. It worked very well for both my 8 year old and 13 year old. I would recommend it to everyone as all ages are covered with different spelling lists and activities for older and younger children. It was interesting learning about something we had never heard about before. Red Tides are dangerous for ocean animals but they are also dangerous to humans!

The Curiosity Files are $6.95 but also sold in bundles for a special price. Some of the other studies are Zombie Fire Ants, MRSA, Blue Diamonds, The Blue-Footed Booby, and Quicksand. They take the unusual and interesting and make them FASCINATING!
