Fun things for Homeschool – Thinking Putty Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review a few products for Timberdoodle.com. You already know that I love their hands on learning products, so when given this opportunity, I jumped at it.

Weelll, the first product that I was asked to review, I just found “okay.” So….I will tell you about a few of the new products I loved!

THINKING PUTTY- We give it an A.

I got this item with Holly in mind. She is my little mosquito… always moving. She is happiest on the swing, riding her bike or climbing a tree, or crazy fast fiddling on her violin. So, when I saw this “Thinking Puddy” I knew she’d love this. It keeps her moving in a controlled way during listening times, like family read aloud time or during educational movies. I need to buy more, though, because Hope also loves it. You can squish it, bounce it, pull it apart, etc…and it doesn’t dry out or stick to clothes. A great friend of the mother of a kinesthetic learner!!

    Ganeida, I think I could have gtteon a LOT more out of my education if it weren’t such a *have to* at my house growing up. You just can’t pressure someone into an ambition, though, or I’d be a physician or lawyer or something like that instead of a loser with six kids and a homeschool blog. :)Persuaded, perhaps we do part company on this. I just can’t see myself advocating for parents to educate their children to a certain *standard* any more than I can tell them what religion to teach them. I think being my brother’s keeper shouldn’t enable him to get all codependent and foist his children on me and stuff… Cain knew he was wrong because he had KILLED someone, not because he failed to do Abel some GOOD.Then again, doctrine is not my strong point. The Golden Rule may advocate your position, though biblically I cannot find ONE example of children being taken from their parents for not doing a good enough job. I’m open to references, though, if you have them. I do see the “helping the widow and the poor” idea embedded in the public/charity school IDEAL, however, and admit it does do some good as well as bad. The “ammo” you’re talking about is often really abusers using the law to their advantage, resulting in lawmakers taking the situation to fit theirs. I think though (honestly, just an opinion) that the next wave of homeschoolers will be transients who will be ill-equipped for the demands homeschooling will entail, but will start this method of teaching because transferring schools frequently is so difficult. Just a thought. And I’m not sure if this will bode well for homeschooling as a whole, but can I say those people should have fewer rights than my family?Allison, I’m not into the diversity teaching thing, either, but MY! some of the things I’ve been reading on facebook from my son’s “friends” are chilling. You know all fags must die, right?*shudder*I’d like to be a reasonable person and agree to reasonable parameters… but if public schools are mandating when my children receive eye exams and what credentials our doctor must have when we do it, I can’t imagine that these are people who would respect my parenting decisions or give me the benefit of the doubt. And I keep thinking about what happened to Elf… with friends like this, do we need enemies? Even the thought of school makes him upset. What if some petty bureaucrat social worker decides what I’m doing isn’t enough? How can we protect the CHILDREN? Maybe I am going about this from my own biased opinion and unusual experience, but in the past the people that should have protected children, didn’t.I know that kids like my Woodjie are more than just what their contribution to society would suggest. 🙂
