Free Books!! About rabbits with swords!!!! And get your own sword!!

Interested in getting a great series for a super awesome price? For a short time, and a willingness to hit a couple sites, you can….

Feeding their bellies and their brains on the way back from a field trip

I don’t know about you, but we spend an inordinate amount of time in the car*.  A couple of years ago I discovered a way to keep it from being a totally time suck: audio programs.  There are actually a few different types of audio programs I use with our kids.  To keep this from being one monster post, we’ll break them into a few different categories. Today we’ll talk about podcasts for kids, and my favorite podcast app . Continue reading “Audio education, Part 1-Podcasts for kids, and my favorite podcast app”
