  1. For the price, I can't complain. It's in the style of the workbooks which we've when learning handwriting, how cute! My 9 year old (4th grade) has been typing for years, but I just couldn't resist a typing program from our old HWT curriculum. So I purchased the 3rd and 4th grade programs and started in on 3rd grade, knowing full well it was below her skill level. It's super easy for her, but I'd love to zoom through that year with my daughter and move on to the 4th/5th grade lessons. To spice it up, it looks like they incorporate actual concepts in other subjects. It's a good start from what I've been able to see so far... which isn't much. For me, the parent, the reporting feature is way too simple. I get a Days Count and Activity Count, both of which are simple bars which give me a number. I can't even see the skills she's worked on. I also have a hard time finding out how to get in the website to see the progress reports they do give. I've honestly spent several minutes each day I try to find that login again. Better feedback, a list of skills worked on, wpm data, and a more prominent Parent/Teacher login would make it a bit more valuable to me. I have no idea what I purchased, what she's learning or how she's doing - unless I sit right next to her and watch her do it all.

      Oh, I'm still here (as of the past few months anyway) but just don't post as much. I went on vacation while the forums were down for the upgrade. Since then I've only seen it on my iPad. It seems to be more soothing colors when I look on my desktop.

  4. Hope you're well!

  5. How are you?! I haven't seen you posting much lately and I am used to seeing lots from you!! <3 Hope all is well!!

  6. You stole the cookies! (Don't worry - we're just playing a game.)

  7. Satori stole 74 cookies...

    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took 75 cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the type in red so that the numbers each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  8. Great blog :), I stopped by a few times in past and liked how visually appealing and detailed it was about your activities with your daughter. You seem to post a lot of useful info and ideas for people who have kids approximately the same age (which excludes me, I am afraid, but I still liked it).

  9. Just stopping by to see your customized profile. :)

    I like it!

  10. Very cute cheerleader smiley! It made me smile.
