well I use the games that game w/ the curriculum, games I remember playing in grade school, the white board, I try to do crafts that match up w/ what we are learning in school, I also use a flannel board sometimes.

Our main curriculum is literature based, so I do a lot of reading out loud. We use a DVD for math and workbooks, science is also a DVD, reading out loud and hands on experiments.

Hmmm, I use the whiteboard a lot, but mainly the iPad. It has my spelling app, math apps, a whiteboard, handwriting, etc.

 Currently anything we find. LOL! My kids like VSmile games, workbooks, shopping, and just playing games. My two older ones are getting a white board to be able to practice on for the holiday.

Oh gosh, I love apps. The spelling one rocks. It works very well with all about spelling. (I'm sure it would work just as well with any spelling program) but I love it because it uses tiles, like AAS does, and I don't have to tote around my huge magnetic whiteboard with a gazillion letter tile magnets. Also, I can type in a list of spelling words and she can practice on her own without me saying "spell blah blah". The iPad does it for me, then tells me what she got wrong or right.

The there is an app called teach me first grade (they also have some other grades) and it will let her practice spelling, addition, subtraction etc and keep track of her progress also. It's great for those days when we have a lot of running or appointments.

She and chels both love an app called tozzle. It's a puzzle app, but it's so much better than some normal puzzle. Can't really describe it. Lol

Back later, bed time for the chickies :)

I love the white board and the boys love that they can wipe it off between activities.
