Itooch (review)

So do you have a child who doesn’t like to write? Would they rather use “technology” then read from a book to review? Well my daughter is just like that. I let her on the computer and all of a sudden she can read. LOL! Well I have a great App to share with you called Itooch.

Itooch is an educational app for apple, android, and windows devices. Itooch was developed by eduPad, a french based company that helps develop elementary through middle school educational apps.

Elementary School

Itooch has Elementary and Middle School math, language arts, and science (based on common core). Elementary starts at 3rd grade, which at first I thought well that stinks, but then I really thought about it and my 1st grader would never use it or need it until she one can read better and two have more in-depth studies to have a need for it.

So I downloaded the samples through my Ipod touch for 3rd grade to experience the different features and see what it is all about. I was pleasantly surprised. There are more than 18,000 exercises in the Elementary portion of Itooch. Ten of the titles can be downloaded and tested for free before you commit to purchasing. There is can be up to 4.500 questions PER title. How great is that? They also include health for 5th grade.

“iTooch Elementary is a full learning solution which helps parents, teachers and students to identify and address their learning needs in a fun and motivating way.” –Itooch

 

  Middle School

The middle school portion has over 10,000 lessons with up to 65 chapters per subject.

So there are so many features. Whether you home school, or using it with a child that goes to public or private this would a be great addition to their studies. Please don’t buy before you try it. No sense in paying money for something you may not even like or think you need. OK that is my two cents for the day.

If you do decide to purchase if I’m reading it right I believe each in app purchase per subject is $9.99 each. Yes a bit steep but I think they have gone above and beyond and have some really great thick content. I will say though that i think a tablet or iPad would be best used with it because it is just a bigger screen base and easier to navigate in my opinion. OK so go check it out if you want.

What are your favorite educational apps? Leave a comment below to let me know.

The Blessed Woman By Debbie Morris (Review)

Image

Debbie Morris take you through the lives of 12 woman in the bible. She starts out with Eve, and Mary and ends with Naomi. For each woman she applies a concept from their lives and helps apply it to todays woman. For Mary she talks about “Being Uses by God, Despite our Inadequacies”. Through every chapter is a new woman to learn from and gain understanding. This book will open your heart and help you gain the understanding of what it means to be a woman before God and follow him. Just as these women followed God thousands of years ago.

Another great feature of this book is the study guide at the back. If you have a group of women you enjoy getting together with this would be a great book  to read through and grow together. You could also use it for yourself and it will help you just gain some more understanding for yourself.

When my girls get older, middle school age, I believe this would be a great book for them to read. Teach them what it means to be a Godly woman. “Because we as women are fashioned wonderfully and uniquely by God, femininity is living in all the splendor of who God created us to be!”

So to sum up what I thought about this book. I thought it was great. It came at the right time and open my eyes to some heart issues I’ve been struggling with. I love the variety of topics the author covered and thought she was very thorough in her thoughts. So go pick it up today. You won’t be sorry you read it.

Chivalry Review

978-1-4143-7635-6

“To rise from error to truth is rare and beautiful.” -Victor Hugo

I’m not sure what I expected when I received this book. It is an eye opener and full of the honest truth. It’s one of those books that you either agree with or you don’t. The author Zach Hunter brings about the issues of todays world and their lack of chivalry. He brings about issues that we all deal with. Some of these issues are truth, honor, self control and so on. This is what I would call a heart book. It deals with the matters of the heart which we all have struggles with in one area or another. I would recommend this book to any teen or older. I believe this is a great book to introduce them to the truths of this world. This is a great book to prepare the heart and mind for the growing adult for this less than civil world.
