Knowledge Quest Timeline Builder App

Hi Neighbors!

We were recently able to review the Timeline Builder App ($6.99) from Knowledge Quest.  I have to say ahead of time this is one App we will probably use quite a bit.  This App is recommended for ages 10+, but in today's computer age, I am sure younger children could use this, even if they needed a little supervision.

The Timeline Builder App from Knowledge Quest is so easy to use and make changes to.  You can set the dates you need and quickly add information, move markers around on the timeline, and add pictures or images.  My 12 year old daughter quickly caught the hang of it and started a timeline on Laura Ingalls Wilder.  She has always enjoyed the Little House series and decided to do a timeline of Laura's life.  She did her research and started adding dates and events to her timeline.  You can see the beginning of her timeline below.

Here is the beginning of her timeline.

Something else we have been using/are using the Timeline Builder App for is creating family timelines.  The first one is for my daughter and we have added special dates in her life from her birth to present day.  She was able to add pictures she from our camera roll, right to her timeline.  I am sure this would also work great for doing genealogies or anywhere else a timeline is needed.

This App is perfect for homeschoolers who can use it in all kinds of situations.  Use it with your history lesson and plot out the events you are studying.  Use it with Bible lessons and create a Bible timeline.  This will be our next big project I think.

One of the things I like about the App is you can take it with you anywhere to work on.  We used my iPad and were able to work even while traveling.  Another benefit is you can save your timelines to your image library or email them to others.  While adding pictures you can choose from your camera roll or the App will connect you with Wikipedia and you can transfer a picture from there.  Oh, I almost forgot, you can choose from different backgrounds to suit your needs.

I do recommend the Timeline Builder App to my neighbors here At the Fence, even if you don't homeschool.  I am sure students could use these for other studies and as I mentioned above you could do a timeline for a family member.  Your children could create a special timeline for grandma and grandpa.

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

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.
