Rock 'N Learn Sight Words Volume 1

If you have children in school you probably know what Sight Words are. The problem is that the English language can be pretty tricky and they are called sight words for a reason. Being the the most commonly used words children are often expected to know what they are on sight and not have to sound them out. Rock 'N Learn has created a fun and exciting way to get those words programmed into your child's mind. Taught best in context Rock 'N Learn Sight Words Volume 1 not only shows the words but it also show pictures and phases that help a child to understand exactly what is meant by that word.
As a mother of 3 children who all need to know or are learning their sight words this DVD has been an enjoyful help. Rock 'N Learn really keeps my kids entertained and engaged in learning the entire time. The video was 50 minutes long which I put on for my kids while I was cooking dinner several times this week. I really believe repetition is the key with these videos. After 5 days of watching it my 5 year old has already started to point out words and be able to tell me what they are. I am hoping it will also really help my 7 year old who struggles with learning disabilities. My kids have really enjoyed watching this video and put it on when they get home now instead of watching cartoons. I plan on taking it to school this week to use with some of my students who are struggling. Of course all the students will be watching and if just one child can thrive with it then it was worth it. Here is  a demo of this great video.

My kids love Rock N Learn! Such fun videos!
We have one of the Rock N Learn DVD's, my son loves it, he still grabs pencil and paper to sit and try to write the letters as it plays.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
