Knowledge Quest Time Maps

Hey Neighbors!

Here is a program I am going to continue using!  It is called Time Maps by Knowledge Quest.  I was really impressed with this product.  I like that the maps are interactive, not just maps with information beside them.

As you view the maps, you can click on the icons in certain areas of the map that will give you more information.  For instance you might learn a fact about the people living there or maybe something about that time period.  If you click on the Q a drop down brings up questions about that specific map and time period.  We personally used the Black Death and studied the spread of the Black Death and how it affected different areas and of course how it spread.

Also available are different maps, activity suggestions, and questions that you can print off for your child to work on.  The questions will cause your child to consider the information they have seen and then come to a conclusion.  Also filling in the timeline and maps will help reinforce what they have learned.

These Time Maps are available for:
Ancient China
The Rise of Rome
The Fall of Rome
The Rise of Islam
The Black Death
European Explorers
The Atlantic Slave Trade

We are looking forward to using other Time Maps throughout the next year.  You can purchase them separately for $9.95 each, download all of them for $44.95 or if you prefer a CD it is $49.95.  This is a wise investment from my point of view.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

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.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

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
