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.

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

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

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
