Review: Kumon Kindergarten Logic

Last year we used these Kumon books that came with our Timberdoodle curriculum and loved them. For our kindergarten curriculum, Timberdoodle has Kumon Kindergarten Logic in it. Our daughter absolutely loves this book. It covers so much from patterns to mazes to pretend and more. What is nice is the skills start off easy and progressively get more challenging. Our daughter’s favorite is the pretend vs. real lesson. She found them very funny.


I like that it covers so much and gives a good amount of lessons for each skill. With the rotation lessons I used a pair of child scissors, we have the Crayola ones, to demonstrate how the objects turn. I think the book having so many colors and cute pictures helps the student stay engaged in the materials. If our daughter had her way she’d finish the whole book in a day but I use Timberdoodle’s online scheduler and have all our curriculum set up for our 47 week school year.

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…

Keeping Organized

Between homeschool, pet care, house cleaning and cooking it’s important to stay organized. How do I organize my homeschool curriculum? Well the main bulk is in a big container, the items I use multiple times a week I have in a utility tote, books I actually store in old Pull-Up boxes and for art supplies, flash cards and little games I keep them in a rolling container.



As for our pets and house cleaning, I have an amazing planner. What I love about this planner is that I was able to customize everything. The covers, layout and even add list like birthdays were all customized to my liking. The birthday list is awesome because the dates are already printed on that day and even lets me know how old people are. I write in my cleaning schedule, which is pretty simple. I clean 1 room a day, dishes everyday and laundry 4 times a week. I write in what days my pets get their baths or need something health wise. 

Cooking is probably the part I hate most. Having to figure out what we’ll eat 3 ti…
