I bought this deal a few weeks ago and received it very quickly. It’s come in hand when I run out to the store or to appointments and forget my mask. Right now on eBay, you can grab a 50 pack of 3-Ply Disposable Face Masks for only $3.68 and shipping is free! Definitely a good deal!
Amazon is offering the eBook Heroes Wear Masks: Elmo’s Super Adventure for FREE on Kindle right now! This looks like a great way to explain to little kids the current new normal.
If you don’t have a Kindle, no problem. You can read eBooks using the FREE Kindle Reading App on Most Devices.
I currently have a homeschooled high schooler. One thing that overwhelmed me was trying to figure out how to create her homeschool transcript. I’m happy to tell you guys that we found a great way to create a beautiful transcript for her!
We having been using a website called FastTranscripts.com. On this website, I can type in her grades and classes and it will formulate her homeschool transcript. We used this to get her driver’s license as a homeschooler and other various things.
Here is a sample of how it looks when you type in your information:
It calculates GPA, keeps track of credits, and makes it very clear and professional. Then you can print it or whatever you need to do.
I definitely recommend this program to anyone wanting to create a student’s homeschool transcript. If you want to check it out, you can snag a 30 day free trial!
Happy Labor Day everyone! We went to the mountains with our camper and enjoyed a great time as a family. We swam, played in the creek, watched an outdoor movie, hiked, and then ended up in the ER with one of my daughters. She fell on the hike and broke part of her hand where the pinkie finger and hand meet. What an adventure that turned out to be! She’s doing well in a splint and we will meet with an orthopedist this week to see what needs to be done next.
Here’s what we are making this week:
Monday: Salad, beans, mac and cheese
Thursday: Chicken salad sandwiches
Friday: Cheesy Bacon Chicken, broccoli
Sunday: Homemade pizza!

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
Throughout our homeschooling years, all of my children have used various online programs. One that has always been used in their younger years is Reading Eggs from Blake eLearning Inc.
For review purposes, we have been using Reading Eggs with my 5th grader, 4th grader, and Kindergartener. This program is geared toward children ages 2-13. Even though the title implies reading skills, Reading Eggs is far more than just simply learning letters and sounds.
The program offers MathSeeds, Reading Eggs, Reading Eggs Junior, Reading Eggspress, and Fast Phonics. All of these programs are available both on a computer and as an app. I’m always a fan of programs with an app feature!
My Kindergartener has been working on Reading Eggs and MathSeeds during the review period. We use it as a reward a few times a week for when he completes his book work for the day. He’s then given time to work on his Reading Eggs program. My son’s favorite part of the program is actually MathSeeds, where he is learning numbers, number words, and shapes. He also likes working on ReadingEggs to practice site words. After completing lessons, he is given a quiz to go over what he has learned so far. There were a few times that I would have to help him on the quiz because he was in a rush to move along and missed a few things. Once I reminded him to slow down, he was able to move along again. Above, you can see him putting together sentences based on what the app is telling him.
My 5th grader prefers working on Reading Eggspress, where she reads stories and answers questions afterward. She also states that she likes having the avatar so that she can change their outfits often. Through different activities, the kids earn golden eggs that they can redeem toward virtual prizes. On their dashboard, they can spend those by simply clicking on Plaza and then shopping.
For my Fourth grader, she’s also a fan of Math Seeds. Out of my kids, she’s probably the one that likes reading the least, but she enjoys this program. She says that Reading Eggs helps make reading fun for her. It’s not just reading, though. For example, with the screen shot above, she was learning about the “point of view” in writing. It did an excellent job teaching about who is telling a particular story.
Beyond just an online program, members also have access to a Homeschool Program Guide to help shape and schedule learning for Kindergarten-2nd grade students. There are a bunch of printables available to members as well.
Overall, we are fans. Reading Eggs definitely is one of our go-to programs for the kids and we are excited to continue working through their programs with our younger kids.
Interested in trying it out? Reading Eggs is currently offering a FREE 30 Day Trial so you can see if it is a fit for your family. It’s one that I plan to continue with my younger kids until they master all of the concepts.
