A Review:


Well, I have joined up with the TOS Review Crew!

I am excited to be a part of this as a way to learn about new and exciting curriculum to incorporate into our home school.  This first review is on  I currently have elementary and pre-school aged children in my home and therefore utilized that section of the site.  I also used the dailies link for general studies. has a promotion going on right now where the first month is only $1.00!  Also, they have a special promotion going on right now where you can get a one-year membership for only $49! (regular price-$64.26!)  What I love about this site is that, though I only have elementary aged students, it goes all the way through high school!

I enjoyed the ease in which I was able to navigate site to find items of interest.  Under the pre-k link, I found under lapbooking their December Lesson which is "Christmas in a Barn."  My kids and I are currently going through that lesson and are having a ton of fun with it!  We've actually never done lapbooking until this particular lesson and it was very easy to follow the teacher's instructions as to the construction of the lapbook.  Under the Dailies tab, we downloaded the Idaho lesson.  That I have slated for next week.  Again, I can't wait to do it!

The only downside so far is the amount of paper I'm printing out, though it's in black and white which really helps!

All in all, I plan to utilize this site more in the future!
