Summer Sensations Review

I have always known that I would homeschool my children so I started with pre-school. Yesterday, my eldest son started Kindergarten and it has been such an exciting time for our family. I take my role as a home educator very seriously and this has lead to hours of researching the best programs and educational tools available. I was aware of the Down Load N Go series but never quite understood how valuable a resource it could be until I recently experienced the new Summer Sensations title. With just a simple click of the mouse, I had our very own unit study available for use. We even learned how easy it is to create a lapbook (something that had initially felt overwhelming until I tried it). All three of my children were able to participate at different levels and our favorite parts of the study were the video links, including Ride The Water Slide  and One Year in Forty Seconds. We discussed the summer season and it inspired us to take a nature walk and view summer up close. My children then created their very first lap book in honor of summer in Florida. Even better is that some of the components that were a bit too advanced for this year will be fresh for use again next year giving us maximum use for a minimal investment.

I was so impressed with Summer Sensations that I decided to explore other titles in the series and was delighted to find lots of interest, including Autumn Treasures (my FAVORITE time of the year) and Davy Crockett (my husband is a direct descendent so even he was interested in this one).  I am intrigued to learn more about the new release Chocolate Challenge because who can resist learning about chocolate?

Titles are extremely affordable as Summer Sensations can be purchased for a mere $7.95 and is available for immediate use via download. To learn more about Summer Sensations or any of the other fantastic titles in the Down Load N Go series check out
