{review & giveaway} Celery Night Fever

{I received a copy of Veggie Tales: Celery Night Fever in exchange for an honest review from FlyBy Promotions. All opinions are my own and a good review was not guaranteed.}


The newest feature from Veggie Tales - Celery Night Fever - will be available August 5 for $14.99.
 


About the DVD:

Veggie pals Laura Carrot and Junior Asparagus have a big job to do...save their beloved Celery Park from being destroyed! Laura and Junior plan a fundraising concert with the formerly famous Groovy Brothers, but the bandmates refuse to play together because of an old grudge. All hope of saving the park seems lost until the group remembers that God forgives without question, so why can't they do the same? Will the band reunite to save Celery Park? Find out in this fun, music-filled VeggieTales adventure! Featuring Terry Crews as the voice of "Bruce Onion"




Our Thoughts:

Another home run from Veggie Tales! Although I've heard complaints from some since Veggie Tales has veered from retelling Bible stories, my family really enjoys the fun stories they produce. You cannot find decent entertainment for children that teaches Biblical values or even good moral lessons. I love that Veggie Tales is still making quality entertainment for families.

Celery Night Fever is a fun story with really great songs. We were all humming along with the tunes while the movie was playing. They're catchy and definitely groovy. The story reinforces the idea that God loves us, so we need to love and forgive each other. Lauren, my 7 year old, thought this movie was fun and the music was awesome.

At the end of the movie, Bob and Larry share Ephesians 4:32, summing up beautifully the lesson taught throughout the movie.

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you"

This is more than family friendly television. Veggie Tales has consistently used solid Biblical wisdom to teach children important lessons. Celery Night Fever is more of the fun, Biblical entertainment we've all come to expect.

{Check out the UPDATED tutorial on using Khan Academy!!}

I'm not a math person. It just never clicked for me. So many homeschool moms have shared similar thoughts as well as their worries over how they'll teach their children upper levels of math. Finding tutors is always an option as are the more expensive computer-based curriculum. But what if those expensive curriculum are out of reach for you or you don't know anyone who can tutor?

Enter Khan Academy.

Khan Academy is a completely free resource that began with Sal - the original genius behind Khan Academy - wanting to provide a better education for relatives overseas. What began as some math videos shared with family members has become an extensive virtual library of over 4,000 videos on topics ranging from basic math to trigonometry to American Civics. They've been featured on The Today Show and have thousands of Twitter followers.  Khan Academy is being used in schools around the world.

So how does this work for …

Khan Academy - UPDATED

{UPDATE #2 -- Khan Academy now gives each person the option of choosing a grade level, from early math - which covers K-2 - to high school. You have to log in under your student's account to change their grade level. But it definitely guides their exercises in a very clear way! We really enjoy it. Let me know what you think!}


One of my most popular posts has been this little tutorial on using Khan Academy for homeschool.  Soon after I posted, Khan Academy completely revamped their Learning Dashboard.  It is even easier now for homeschool families to use Khan Academy for their students.

Here's how to get started, if you haven't yet.  And you should! Because it's amazingly easy and totally free.


First step. Sign in. Always sign in as a teacher, so you have access to all the 'coach resources' as they're called. It will also give you more ways to track what your students are doing and what skills they need to keep practicing.



Once you're signed in, what you…

map tablecloth

Reposting a popular homeschool idea...

One issue homeschoolers run into at times is where to keep maps. Many programs really require access to a world and US map. Some homeschoolers are blessed with enough space to have a dedicated homeschool room. For those of us that do school at the dining room table, the living room couch or where ever we land - where do we display a map?


My oldest daughter suggested gluing a map to the underside of a clear tablecloth. Sounded like a good idea to me! Turns out it was the easiest project ever. We now have a sturdy plastic tablecloth to protect the table as well as easy access to a world map as well as a US map.

I purchased a large clear table protector, a World & US wall map set and clear Elmer's glue.


First step, spread the whole plastic cloth out and line up the maps up the way you want them. Our table is large enough that we could have both maps shown at once.





Glue like crazy on the map side, then carefully flip it over so the map side…
