Review: What Do Grown-ups Do All Day?

The book What Do Grown-ups Do All Day? came with our 2018-2019 Timberdoodle PreK Elite Kit. It goes through 14 different job sights and explains each job within them. The explanations aren’t to long so it’s easy for kids to grasp the concept of each job. Even though it only does 14 job locations it showcases different jobs for each place. For me there was a huge downside. The very first job sight is a school which I don’t mind but it never mentions that some families homeschool. As a homeschool mom I’d love it if this book also included this way of doing school.


Since the book doesn’t mention homeschool I found a book called This is My Home This is My School by Johnathan Bean. To better explain that some families send their children to public school while others, like ours, do school at home. What I do like about What Do Grown-ups Do All Day? is seeing which job our daughter would like to do if she was on that job site. Or having a great one-on-one conversation about what each job entails.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
