We LOVE This Free Educational App...Knowonder!


Recently, I was given an opportunity to review a really incredible FREE educational app called Knowonder! I was really excited and had high hopes for this new app! Our family has become much more media savvy in the last year or so as we've learned to embrace our online time, Netflix, iPad,   iPod and iPhones for more educational purposes. I've fought this most of the way, but in the end...realized that there are actually some really redeeming qualities to all of our media sources if we're wise in what we choose to view and how much we choose to view it.

With that said, I was really happy to learn about an app that promotes literacy, fun, creativity and new stories every single day for you and your kids to read together. I could swear the creator of Knowonder! must have read my mind when I put my wish list together for the kind of app I was hoping to find next.

If you'd like to read why we think this app is so awesome (because there's even more to it than what I'm revealing here), then click over to the Hip Homeschool Moms for my full review.

Embracing our media options!

Since our boys are so media savvy, I'm learning how to better embrace the various tools we have for our educational benefit. And yes, I'd be lying if I didn't admit that there's some great entertainment value as well. Next week I plan to list all the ways we take advantage of our media and how.
