Wondering what to get your favorite lady for Mother's Day?

This year, we're thinking about upgrading my mom to an unlimited wireless plan from +Walmart Family Mobile . We'll be able to send her pictures, text messages and keep up with her on Facebook.

All this without breaking the bank!

Preschool Learning App - Leo's Pad from Kidaptive

While the big kids enjoy the big snow here, Maeve and I are snuggled up on the couch, exploring catapults and rocket fuel with our Leo's Pad app.

We worked on concepts like color recognition, counting, following directions, letter recognition, building CVC words and more. Great for older toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarten aged children. 

You can access the first chapter for free! Code IHOMESCHOOL saves you 20% off the rest of the chapters until 5/31/15!

Teaching Algebra in Your Homeschool with Learning Apps

Admit it, #homeschool  momma. It's been a few years since you've had an algebra class, and you might not have paid very close attention. 


Do you need some help? Are you stressing as you look ahead at the math curriculum and see algebra looming ahead like a big ugly monster? 

Never fear. 

I've got the solution for you. +DragonBoxApp (available in Android and iOS) teaches your children algebra (and geometry, too!) through game based learning. Your childen won't realize they're learning to isolate variables! You'll wonder "Where in the world was this when I was studying all night in tears?"

Come take a look -- don't forget to enter for your chance to win your own desktop copy!
