We like to add fun subjects like science to our summer studies so I was excited to receive Learning About Science Collection, Level 3 (Cursive) from WriteBonnieRose!
I have done one other review of a WriteBonnieRose publication, you can read it here.
“The Artist” is my most enthusiastic science kid, so I was certain he would enjoy doing Level 3 of the Learning About Science Collection. I let him look over the options once we received our download for the purpose of this review, and he decided he wanted to begin with Life Science: “What’s Going On Inside Plants?’
Other topics in this series include:
- Earth Science, Discovering Rocks, Minerals & Crystals
- Physical Science, Energy And It’s Many Forms
- Earth Science, Exploring The Earth’s Land forms
- Earth Science, forecasting & understanding the Weather
- Life Science, Kinds of Animals & How They Live
- Life Science, Life in the Oceans Hidden Zones
Also included in our download is a four page pdf with a goodly amount of categorized web links to add in when we want to find out more in a given topic.
Each one of the “workbooks” from WriteBonnieRose is around 20 pages in length. They can be printed out and used as worksheets, bound together as a book, or simple stapled in a top corner, as we did. Eventually, we will remove the staples, and then either 3-hole punch to put all together in a notebook or maybe I will take them to be spiral bound as a complete book.
As I said above, “The Artist” was interested in starting with “What’s Going On Inside Plants?” workbook. I am very impressed at what he was able to learn that he didn’t already know from it! A few evenings ago, for some reason the topic of fungi came up at supper (you just never know what you will be discussing at supper when you have a bunch of boys! 🙂 ) I said that i thought maybe moss was a fungus, and “The Artist” immediately said no, moss is a non-vascular plant. When I asked him how he knew this, he said “I learned it from WriteBonnieRose! Here is the page that he was referring to:
Here is the cover of the workbook “The Artist” has been focusing on:
I did manage to get one picture when he was actually working on, and coloring the workbook pages:
One thing we really appreciate is that these are labeled as “levels,” as opposed to grades. My kids are age-wise older than the third grade, but they have different levels of abilities depending on their individual delays. This was perfect for “The Artist,” because he loves science, and he absolutely prefers to learn in bite sized chunks.
Bonnie Rose is a writer. She was never homeschooled, and never had any children. She ended up writing for the homeschool community because she loves children, and is a supporter of homeschooling. Another author suggested that she go to a homeschool convention, where she picked up a free copy of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. She ended up volunteering to write for Schoolteachers.com, an educational website developed by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.
Bonnie Rose is an excellent writer of educational materials, and I very much recommend her!
