Math Games Make Learning Fun

0

As a homeschooling family, we are able to be highly involved in our children’s learning experiences, which allows us the opportunity to know where we need to apply a little more focus in curriculum. Recently, we’ve spent a lot of time studying math facts. I’ve been working with my 4th grader to memorize the multiplication tables and with my 1st grader to memorize all the basic addition and subtraction facts. Sometimes (OK, most of the time), memorizing math is anything but fun. Thanks to LogicRoots.com, learning math can be a little more fun for kids, whether they are in home-school or traditional.

Caveman Coffee & MCT Oil

0

Caveman Coffee offers high quality, fair-trade, sustainably sourced, small batch, single origin, roasted, whole bean coffee (catch all that?), among other great products. I was able to try their light, medium and dark roast coffee blends, as well as their own label MCT coconut oil. With a whole variety of coffee blends, nitro cold brews, whole leaf teas, and k-cup pods, there is a product for everyone at Caveman Coffee. Here is my take on the paleo themed hip local coffee roasters. Continue reading

Bamboo Paper Products for the Eco-Conscious #earthfriendly

1

Bamboo is like soy. You can make almost anything out of it, and also eat it. What is interesting about the bamboo plant is how fast it can grow. I knew of the fast growing, sustainable properties of this versatile plant, but apparently some varieties can grow 3 whole feet in just one day! It’s logical to make household paper products out of something that grows beyond significantly faster than the trees we are used to using. Most households go through so much toilet paper, tissue, wipes, etc. in a year that it’s no wonder the forests are being cut down faster than we can replace them. Bamboo may be the key to solving this increasing devastation. Continue reading

Happy New Year!

This is an exciting new beginning as we start a brand new calendar year. It’s always an excellent time to create some resolutions to help us improve our lives. I have a couple resolutions myself this year. The first is to eat out less. Being super busy, and often overwhelmed with all my responsibilities as a stay at home/work from home/home schooling mom, I find it way too easy to say, “Let’s just go out!” No thinking, planning, shopping, or cleaning makes it SO MUCH BETTER! But the cost and the calories really add up. The key to this, is having Continue reading

The Benefits of Practicing Yoga

Yoga is a mind, body, soul experience that teaches us to breathe properly (something many of us struggle with), release our tensions, and increase our flexibility. It encourages us to live in the here and now, to take care of our bodies, and to nurture ourselves inside and out. While Yoga does have it’s roots in ancient India, it has become increasingly popular in the western world since Continue reading
