Looney Tunes Phonics Review

looneytunesphonics.php

Our family absolutely loves The Looney Tunes Phonics program! My children actually beg to play. The Looney Tunes Phonics mixes learning and classic cartoons with characters like Taz, Bugs Bunny, and Road Runner to name a few. As your child progresses through each lesson, they are able to see little clips from Looney Tunes. This program is for children 3 years old-3rd grade at least, this system is completely tailored to your child’s needs from learning their letters to reading chapter books.

Each lesson begins with a video clip in the settings you can adjust how many videos are in each lesson and how long the clip is. The instructions are clear which allows the child to work independently. What fantastic is this is a lifetime memberships which allows for you to use it as much as you want and once one child grows out of it another child can use it (family membership allows 3 children at a time).

Our family would definitely recommend this program to other families. It’s so easy for parents and children to use and with positive reinforcement who wouldn’t love it. There’s no software to worry about and you can access it anywhere, don’t waste anymore time give your child the encouragement they need to enhance their reading.

Cloth diapers for beginners

image

Back when we decided to try for another baby, we trimmed our budget down to the bare bones.  HAVING two children already we knew that diapers and formula were the largest expenses. So I began to research cloth diapers. Luckily I have a friend over at The Natural Baby and she was able to give me a lot of information on the different types of diapers and how to figure out which brand would best suits our family.

Like the different types of curriculums we choose to teach with, cloth diapers have just as many choices. My biggest concern with cloth diapers was cleaning them (ewwww!), I wish I would have know then what I do now and that is that it’s super simple! Unfortunately the choosing is not the only process you need to think about. Although with cloth you have a low rate of rashes they can still happen and if the does you want to use a cloth diaper specific brand of diaper cream such as Thirsties Booty Love Diaper Ointment or CJ’s BUTTer ointment.

After months and months and months of surveying my cloth diapering friends I finally ordered diapers. We have been on our cloth journey for 6 months now and I can say we have settled in and have our favorite diapers. Mine are Simplex (blueberry) and my husband’s is Grovia
There are so many options and information but I know my friends at

The Natural Baby- Virtual diaper class and online store!  They have trial packages as well as used/like new diapers. In addition you can gain points from orders.
Or
Figgy fuzz- Offering huge variety of diapers as well as a lot of other fun baby items. She also has a great point system as well.

* Please mention I sent you :)

I thought it would be helpful to post some money saving tips and this is one of the ways we save in our homeschooling family.

Have any questions I’d love to write more about it.
