Tech Tuesday – Introducing The Periodic Table

In our science lesson yesterday we did a short introduction to the periodic table. We had a nice and colorful periodic table in our book and I was able to print one out from here – simple black and white periodic table – for their notebooks. I thought it would be fun to take a little detour from our book (Our Planet Earth) and visit two sites that will tell us a little more about the periodic table in interesting ways. Visual Periodic Table Periodic Table Of Videos And play some games that I made for The Beehive (they are all …

Tech Tuesday

Welcome back to Tech Tuesday. Today I wanted to share about one of the ways we use our iPad. Jonah has been making these wonderful Lighthouse Memory Club animations for the kids and we have all been learning our memory verses.

The Xbox, a USB drive, and homeschooling.

We got an Xbox for Christmas last year (as in 2010). We got the Kinect version and we used it for PE last winter. Then one day it quit working. We procrastinated on getting it fixed only to discover shortly before Christmas this year that it was only the cord that needed replacing, which The Source happily did for free. All that to say, we are happy to have the Xbox back to burn off that extra energy from being stuck inside during the colder weather. While we have missed it for doing active games on the Kinect, we have …

Top Ten Ways The iPad Has Changed Our Homeschooling

As most of my regular readers know, our oldest son has autism. A few months ago my husband and I came across an article that discussed how the iPad was having an impact on a family that was affected with autism. We researched the iPad and how it was impacting families and then we spent several hours looking through the iTunes store at all the apps. We chose to spend some of our special needs funding for this year and go out on a limb and purchase an iPad for our family. We have had it for 5 days and …
