My kids help me out around the house. It isn't always by choice though. Logan has chores that he does everyday (or at least he's supposed to) and I am beginning to let Sam help out with simple tasks. Since their chores vary each day, they always come to me and ask what they should do to help out. I recently had the opportunity to review Zone Cleaning For Kids through TriggerMemorySystem.com and it has been a big help! It includes:
I also tried out Times Tales, a great DVD that will help my kids with multiplication. To be honest, I thought it would never work. I never would have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. Here's a little more about the program:
FAST: Total learning time is only an hour!
EASY: After watching Times Tales, kids as young as five can recite the upper
times tables upper without even understanding multiplication!
FUN: Kids love this learning method and ask for more! Covers the most
difficult to memorize times tables:
Game show quiz: Students plays a fun, beat-the-clock game to challenge
their newly-learned skills!
Non-consumable: Can be used by the entire family.
Bonus CD: Print off a fun game, written tests, multliplication and division
flashcards, and crossword puzzles.
Great for special needs students: Works for many kids when other programs
Logan had fun and after a few fun lessons, he began to pick it up! Logan is still working on it, but Sam (my four year old) really surprised me most of all. I couldn't believe he actually picked up on some of it too! He is just learning basic addition! The DVD is far from boring and my kids wanted to watch it because it was fun. I am crossing my fingers that they come up with other great programs too. Check them out! You can even download a trial!
Disclosure: I was sent Times Tales and Zone Cleaning For Kids in order to complete this review.
