I'm not sure if my daughter or I was more excited about finding these easy to use math games on Power My Learning. In the last two days my daughter has asked about a million times to play these games. So far we have only been exploring the math section under Kindergarten. She seemed to really enjoy most of the counting games until she got into geometry and was working on 2D versus 3D shapes.
It was nice to see where she struggled so I could in turn find some new ideas on how to teach that portion to her. I adore being her first and forever teacher and tools like this make it much easier. There are so many games that I'm sure if your kid likes dinosaurs they probably have a dino game! My daughter wanted to play all the Curious George games.
I also have a touch screen computer and that made playing the games more interactive rather then a traditional mouse. I did try to have her play on my tablet but for some reason the site slowed down on my tablet. Might be more of a tablet issue over the site so no worries go get on and find your child's grade level and get them reviewing before school starts again.
Not only is this website great for parents but for teachers as well. The site has thousands of free games, videos, and interactives in all major K-12 subjects and best part they are aligned to the Common Core Standards for education. This is by far a webpage you need to bookmark, pin on Pintrest, share on Facebook, write it on a sticky note so you have access to it: POWER MY LEARNING.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
