This iPad app is a high-quality learning tool that can be usedRead More ...

Barefoot World Atlas App in Spanish {Giveaway}

Like me, my daughter Vanessa is fascinated by maps, atlases and geography in general. And like most first-graders, she’s addicted to the iPad and it’s endless apps.

Back to School DIY Activity Sign

It’s that time of the year again when routine must kick back into gear because school is back in session. I’ve been working with the kids on our own routine here at home.
