K5 Learning review

K5 Learning is an on line reading and math enrichment program where kids study independently and learn at their own pace, 
It is a wonderful  program that offers over 3,000 tutorials and activities to help enrich children's math, reading and spelling skills.
They offer an on line assessment of the 8 key math and reading skills,and then K5 Learning will choose the lessons based on that assessment. 
It is organising the study process so that you don’t have to. K5 will not only select and give the lessons to your children. but it keeps track of the lessons learned and even provides you with progress reports. 
Parents also have the choice to assign any K5 lesson at any time .
I found that my 8 year daughter had forgotten how to count money and choose lessons that focused on that.
What took almost 2 years in school was learned in a few lessons at K5 Learning.
She really enjoyed the custom avatar and lesson plans. They were easy to understand and follow. 
Best of all the knowledge stayed with her because he next time she went to the store, I did not need to count out the money for her.
That is the best kind of learning!

I highly recommend K5 Learning because it has proven to be a quality online website that delivers results.

Swing on by http://www.k5learning.com and check out their video tour here K5 Learning Video Tour
and take a look at their Sample Lessons for further information.
They also offer  Free worksheets  and this awesome Free Ebook.
Filled with practical advice and specific activities parents of preschoolers to Grade 5 kids can use to help them excel in school.

Welcome Autumnween!

"Just before the death of flowers,

And before they are buried in snow,

There comes a festival season

When nature is all aglow."

- Author Unknown

Happy Fall y'all!
Autumn is one of my favourite time of the year hands down.
Maybe it's because I am greeted by this spectacular display
of Fall foliage.
Watching Fall in action as the green leaves of Summer are turned into hues of gold, red and orange.
As well as making a perfect backdrop for Greenacre's Halloween decorations.
Wanna a wee tour?
Coooooome on over then!
Planting nasturtiums, marigolds and chrysanthemums proved to be a great idea.
They are joined by the sedums, rudbeckias and blanket flowers,
 and are splashing garden beds with Fall colours.
Ironically there are remnants of Summer amongst them.
These day lily stems for example, were gathered before I cut the lilies back.
The oak branches were picked up on our last trip to the beach but Fall is a season of celebrating natures bounty.
Why not use these beauties as decorations?
Although Thanksgiving is celebrated before Halloween round here I can never resist the urge to put up the Halloween decorations alongside Thanksgiving.
Combining the two holidays is really easy to do.
Use alot of pumpkins, leaves, scarecrows, ghosts and skeletons.
Skully & Jack,  make the perfect Thanksgiving & Halloween combo.
Spiders and owls also help celebrate Autumnween perfectly!
2 weeks is just not enough time to enjoy my decorations.

 I have created some free memes and printables to help celebrate this wonderful season.

 Happy Happy Happy Autumnween y'all!!

Summer it up!

Summer is here and at Greenacre, 
Grasping every hot, sunny day we get ....come on and join us!

It might just create a need for some coupons to 
reward the kids for good behaviour.
Never underestimate the positive effects of a fun slide!
 Here are some free responsibility rewards coupons I have created.

These were the lunch notes I made for my baby girl during the last weeks of school.
If you would like to create your own here are some blank versions I created.

These  could double for favour tags for a Summer or Beach party.
However you are spending these splendid days of Summer...
Make sure y'all
