These items are great for the student or homeschooler in your life. Or maybe there is a teacher you know who could use one of these. Because I received these so late, and then we took a trip, instead of doing all 3 of these individually, I have chosen to do them together. So, there will be 3 winners. The first winner will have first choice, second will then choose from the 2 remaining and the third will receive the last one left. No matter which one the winner receives, I know you will like these items!
First up is the No Yell Bell. This is unique, and could actually be used in a home situation also, not just teaching. Have you ever needed to get your child/children's attention? This will do it! And in a fun manner! Do you teach Sunday School or any class of children? Then this bell is for you! You put in your 4 AAA batteries, choose the sound you like and ring your No Yell Bell. The sound choices are a buzzer, a trumpet, a fanfare and cheering and a few others. There is a volume setting also, for those times you don't need it quite so loud. This would also be handy to use to call your children in when they are outside. Another GREAT product from Educational Insights.
Next up is Alpha Catch. It helps teach children phonics. There are four soft catcher's mitts 26 soft, self stick alphabet balls featuring upper and lower case letters, along with a teacher's guide with 7 interactive games. What a neat way to practice recognizing letters and learning their sounds. As the children toss the balls back and forth, they are required to say the name of the letter, or the sound the letter makes. You can also have them say a word that begins or ends with the letter they catch. There are a variety of ways to play. Another fun game, useful in a school or homeschool setting!
Last of all is the GeoSafari Jr. Talking Microscope. Now, we have done a couple different microscopes in the past, and I have enjoyed reviewing each one. They are well made and sturdy. My daughter loves these! Anything to do with Science or History. This one is for ages 5+. Your child/children will be able to view 12 different bugs 5x larger on the included slides. They will learn more than 120 bug facts. Like; worker bees can only sting once, or perhaps that ground beetles give off a stinky smell. The microscope does require 3 "C" batteries. The Talking Microscope shares facts and then tests a child's knowledge with fun games and quizzes. Just turn the Microscope on, after inserting the batteries of course. Choose "!" for facts or "?" for quiz. Place you slide under the clips on the microscope. (It will snap in securely) Each slide has a code printed on the left hand side and you enter the code using the buttons on the back of the microscope. Now, you will hear facts, or take a quiz. For True and False questions press "A" for True and "B" for False. You will also have multiple choice questions where you will enter either "A", "B", or "C". What homeschooling mom would not enjoy owning one of these?
So, as I explained in the first paragraph, there will be 3 winners, and each will receive 1 of these products from Educational Insights. Be sure to enter for yourself, for friends, to use as a gift. And make sure that you check out Educational Insights for other great products. Be sure to like them on Facebook too!
Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child. Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First TV. Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age. And it works! Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life. Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words. Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing. There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along. The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish. Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer. Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
