Are you ready for 1st Grade Game Show Review

Summer is coming so it's time to keep those skills your kids learned over the last school year and prepare them for the next year! Lakeshore Learning has created an amazing new game to help keep learning during summer! 

My Review:
There is roughly a month left of Kindergarten for my daughter.   This year has gone a bit too fast but she is enjoying getting older and getting smarter. 

Thank-you Lakeshore for sending me the "Are you ready for 1st Grade? Game Show"  in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.

Since the game has arrived we have played the game two times.   It is very simple to play as I ask her questions and she wins money if she answers correctly.   The game board reminds me of Jeopardy a little bit as each card is worth a certain amount of money.  We have only finished one set of question cards so this game will not disappoint because it has lots of questions!  

I have only played the game with my daughter but this game could create more fun if there were a couple more kids in the game.  A little friendly competition can make this more fun!

This game is a huge help to parents.   Once I had a list of the answers she got wrong it was very easy to go online and enter the wrong answers and then they break down some areas that need to be worked on!   Can I say EASY at home summer school.  :)

I have been online looking at the ideas and free printables and it will be easy to print and help my daughter master these skills she is lacking before going to first grade.  They also have other products they sell that would help in that skill area. 

One area that my daughter needs to work on is word problems with addition and subtraction.   The site has two different worksheets with an answer key if any parent needs it along with two products they sell.  

Since we still have many more questions to go the online results page will save my results so far or I can email them and print them.   The options are fantastic.  

You can order this game for your child for the appropriate grade level.  To get $10 off any Are You Ready? Game Show®, enter code 9141 at checkout or click here for a store coupon!  Expires 7/31/14.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

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!
