My Thoughts:

I received the Brown Leathersoft version of the King James Study Bible, Full Color Edition. This is a lovely stitched brown faux leather bound bible. I love that this version has the thumb index and ribbon marker to easily find the scripture passage and bookmark your place. Other Bibles will try to change pages on you and this one doesn't because it stays flat when opened. The words of Christ are in red and the text is in a wonderful 10 point font that is easy on the eyes. There are so many study notes, references, translation notes, full-color maps and charts, archeological notes, personality profiles, and notes on Christian doctrines. There are topical indexes, a word concordance, introductions, outlines and pages that tell you how to use everything and help you find and understand things better. This Bible is the perfect tool for studying the scriptures and it will be a great Bible to pass down for generations and has a lifetime guarantee.

TV Store Online My Little Pony Group Sleigh Ride Snowflakes Juniors Navy Sweatshirt Review and Valentine's Giveaway! #FreeProductReceived


DISCLOSURE/DISCLAIMER: I received this product free from TV Store Online in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The giveaway product is also provided free of charge to the winner. Affiliate links are in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

TV Store Online is a great online store that has quality licensed merchandise from TV, movies, comic books, and 80's themes. There is stuff from Disney, Hasbro, Nintendo, Marvel, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. You can find a number of accessories, clothing, footwear, pajamas, robes, costumes, shirts, leggings, etc.

If you've been reading my blog for a while you know that I am a Brony, a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that is outside the target demographic of little girls. Practically my whole family are into the animated TV series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic or MLP FIM for short. We go to Seattle Washington almost every year to participate in Everfree Northwest, the MLP convention out there. Sometimes we even cosplay characters from the show.

 

Me wearing the MLP Group Sleigh Ride Snowflakes Juniors Navy Sweatshirt in Medium.

 

For this review I picked out a My Little Pony Group Sleigh Ride Snowflakes Juniors Navy Sweatshirt in a medium to review. The medium fit was just right. This officially licensed My Little Pony sweatshirt comes in S-2X in junior sizes. I love that this sweatshirt is super soft inside. It is navy blue and has fair isle patterned snowflakes printed on the background. It pictures Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy pulling a sleigh with Pinkie Pie, Princess Twilight Sparkle and Rarity also printed on it. I love that the whole mane six is featured on the front of the shirt. The sweatshirt is made from 60% Cotton and 40% Polyester. I cannot wait to wear this for Christmas holidays, to Christmas Ugly Sweater Parties, and to Everfree NW this year if they don't cancel it because of the Coronavirus (it was cancelled last year)!

I recommend TV Store Online for all your fan apparel needs for the entire family. You can even all match or be unique...it is all up to you. They have so many different items to choose from there is bound to be something that would be perfect for gifting. Valentine's Day is coming up and they have some fun Valentine's products also. Deluxe Face Masks are now available too!

SchoolhouseTeachers.com Ultimate PreK-12 Annual Membership Review #FreeProductReceived

Disclaimer: I received this product free through the Homeschool Review Crew in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. Affiliate links are in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

My family had the privilege of trying the Ultimate PreK-12 Annual Membership from SchoolhouseTeachers.com for this review to use in conjunction with our own curriculum at home. This is a Homeschool Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.

SchoolhouseTeachers.com is a wonderful homeschooling website for wholesome Christian worldview based courses which saves time, resources, and money. They are self-paced and flexible for you and your children and once you start the membership you have all their Christian homeschool curriculum right at your fingertips. They have courses in many subject, including: Bible, Language Arts, Math, History, Geography, Social Studies, Science, Art, Computer, Drama/Speech, Languages, Music, Health/Fitness, Electives, Unit Studies, Literacy Center, Preschool, Learning Center. The curriculum is very flexible. You can build your own curriculum or use the information found in the Scope & Sequence to put a subject or grade together. Parents can easily build a customized curriculum that matches the specific needs of their children. This is an online membership with downloadable, printable elements as well as online classes and video components. Interactive courses are also being added as well so that the parent or guardian doesn't have to directly teach the student. All updates and enhancements to courses are included in the membership, so as more interactive courses become available, they are automatically added to your membership. Once you have your membership you can browse by grade: learning together, elementary, middle school, and high school or by subject.


Subjects Included in Membership

 

There are also School Boxes at no extra cost. These are like boxed curriculum, but are in digital format in SchoolhouseTeachers for your convenience. They come with your membership and include all you need to teach your student at home. Included is a curriculum guide for each subject that correlates with the Scope and Sequence, weekly checklists to keep you on track, daily checklists that guide you and your student through each activity, direct links to the SchoolhouseTeachers courses and resources you need by the week, all the additional suggested materials for the year listed in one place, and links to additional SchoolhouseTeachers resources for those days you want to spend more time on a topic your kids love.

 

SchoolhouseTeachers School Boxes
 

Under resources you can also find back issues of the The Old Schoolhouse Trade Magazine in digital format. With your subscription you will be able to read so many awesome articles on homeschooling. I love that they have this as well because I can read articles that I might have missed in the previous years.

There is also a Literacy Center that helps teach your child how to read in 101 simple steps. The Literacy Center covers pre-reading and reading from a preschool-2nd grade level and reading comprehension through a 3rd-4th grade level. In this center they have downloadable books for Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. There are also other series and classics as well to read. 

The Focused Learning Centers are also included in the membership. These are resources available when your student needs help in a particular area. They have resources for math, reading, special needs, foreign language, high school, college planning, or science.

A SchoolhouseTeachers membership is one price for the entire family with courses for all ages. From preschool through the last high school year, SchoolhouseTeachers has it covered, and the price is locked-in for as long as you keep your membership!
 

How We Used This and Our Thoughts: 

During our review period we checked out SchoolhouseTeachers and their "Christmas Corner" since Christmas was coming up. You can find it under the resources tab in the Holiday and Seasonal Content. We downloaded the Finding Christ in Christmas Activities PDF. It was basically a advent calendar for the month of December. Each day had an activity and a related scripture. All activities focused around Christ and his teachings about love for others. December 30th was make a food pine cone for the birds and we found out that we were doing this for both these lessons and a lesson in the "Let's Do Science Outside" that we were also going through this year. In the "Christmas Corner they also had Christmas themed videos for both kids and the rest of the family and other Christmas themed lessons that spanned subjects, for example: learning about the animals of the nativity, building a gingerbread house, copywork and lapbooking, learning about what Christmas was like in the renaissance, and learning to play Joy to the World on a violin, etc.

 

SchoolhouseTeachers Let's Do Science Outside Overview

 

We checked out the 4th grade science out because my daughter, Zari, loves science and this would be age appropriate for her. We looked at all the curriculum and settled on the "Let's Do Science Outside" lessons. We had previously done the "Let's Do Art Outside" lessons last year and thought this would be fun to do as well. The "Let's Do Science" has a lesson plan and 20+ lessons that you can download and print in PDF format. The Lesson Plan is a PDF and has the class length, schedule, resources needed, instructions, lessons completed (you check the box by each lesson as soon as they are finished), and a table with date, lesson, materials required, and notes that you can fill in yourself. Each activity has fun things to do with science outside. We love being outdoors in nature and doing lessons outside is a big plus because it gets the wiggles out and lets minds explore. I thought that overall the lessons all looked like fun and so we picked one to do that my daughter was interested in doing. She picked the one called "Natural Pine Cone Bird Feeder". Since it is winter birds need the extra food and fat that these give them. We had a lot of great pine cones from an evergreen tree that drop them in our backyard, so she went out and found a good one to use. We didn't have lard like it said in the recipe to use so instead we used peanut butter because that is a great alternative. She had a lot of fun with this lesson and definitely will want to do more of the lessons when it isn't as wet outside.

There is also a great video library that you get access to with the membership of SchoolhouseTeachers. This has 450+ videos across several academic areas, as well as kids’ entertainment, marriage and parenting, apologetics, Bible study, and holidays. There are some videos in this library that are hosted on RightNow Media. You will need to have an account with RightNow Media in order to view these videos. These videos are noted by the orange banner in the upper right hand corner of the image. The videos that are strictly North American are noted by the red banner in the upper right hand corner of the image. There are videos that are only included in the Ultimate membership and these are noted by the blue banner in the upper right hand corner of the image. Some of the videos in the library are parts of the many classes on the SchoolhouseTeachers site. The video page is a library with all the videos rounded up in one place so that you can find them easily and all together. If you click on the images then it goes directly to the lessons they go with or the streaming video on their site. We absolutely love the Drive Thru History videos and Violin and Guitar lesson videos.

I love that with this membership you have the flexibility and ability to build a customized complete curriculum. You can create a schedule for each of your children using their Schedule Builder. You can choose a weekly schedule or a 9 week schedule. The scope and sequence will help you build you schedule and know what needs to be taught depending upon the grade or subject. You can build a whole curriculum for your child or pick and choose courses to use as a supplement to your child's education.

There are so many pockets on the SchoolhouseTeachers that I have not even gotten a chance to see yet and they keep on adding more things. I definitely haven't mentioned everything. I am going to love exploring more and expanding both mine and my children's learning. I know I can count on SchoolhouseTeachers to have wholesome Christian based lessons which save me time, resources, and money.

Simply Earth December Recipe Box Review & Giveaway #EssentialOils #FreeProductReceived

 

Disclaimer: I received FREE product through Simply Earth in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. Affiliate links are in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Simply Earth's essential oils are 100% pure with no added fillers or artificial fragrances and the ingredients are toxic free. They are GC/MS tested to make sure of this. All of their ingredients are ethically sourced and come from smaller, family owned farms.

My Thoughts:

I received the Simply Earth December Recipe Box to try out. This DIY soap making kit gets you started making your own soap and other products to use at home. I love the fact that each monthly recipe box comes with not just one, but four full size essential oils! Simply Earth has added so much love to each box they hand pack. If you are a new subscriber you will also get a free Big Bonus Box that will come with your first month. It has wonderful ingredients and bottles to use with your first recipe box. Plus you can have fun making all the natural recipes together with family and/or friends. My kids love to help out in the kitchen.

The December Recipe Box is wonderful! My favorite of the essential oils from this box was the Bergamot EO because of its warm citrusy floral scent. These EO boxes have so much more to offer than just a single EO subscription that you would find other places. I love that this subscription comes with a whole kit to make your own soap, plus other things. If you watched the December Recipe Box reveal video it has one thing that isn't in the kits: the dried orange slices. This is because Simply Earth had trouble with the quality and didn't want to put something in the kits that was subpar. Instead they have on their website instructions to make your own dried orange slices

I can't wait to make the recipes from this box! One recipe in particular, the Winter Sunshine Diffuser Blend, is supposed to boost your spirits this winter and it just sounds heavenly. I definitely need some cheering up with all that has been going on in the world lately. What better way to keep my mind off of these things than to keep busy with Simply Earth's fun recipes.

I love that Simply Earth has quality products at a fraction of the prices you would see from other companies. The Simply Earth subscription won't break your budget or empty your bank account and by subscribing you won't have to get pressured into sales at any EO parties. Also, 13% of profits from Simply Earth go to end human trafficking! This subscription would be a great gift for someone during the holidays!
