Nest Learning: A Review and Giveaway~

With home educating Nathaniel for 3 years, I have really done a lot of research about different approaches with education. All kids have different learning styles, and different ways of grasping ideas and concepts. Nest Learning focuses on providing educational products and supplies, for family teaching times, or more formal curriculum or supplemental instruction. They carry literally thousands of educational and inspirational DVDs, books, curricula, games, toys, lesson plans, and other products for educators and families.
I really wish I would have known about Nest learning when I was home schooling. Nathaniel is a hands on and visual learner. He loves the Abraham Lincoln Interactive DVD and resource book! The Interactive DVD is so entertaining and well put together! We really enjoy watching it as a family. There is so much history in the DVD, and kids don't really know that they are learning while watching a movie.
Nathaniel learns patriotism, good judgment, and honesty with this 30-minute animated educational DVD. This is great for the visual learners!
Each Interactive DVD features: Optional English and Spanish subtitles, a 3-level Adventure Quiz, integrated movie clips, story summaries, a “Principles Guide for Parents & Teachers”, premium website access to a fun-filled Kids' Zone--packed with teaching resources for educators, parents, and caregivers!
Each interactive DVD includes a 48-page Resource & Activity Book full of skill-developing activities, word games, puzzles, coloring pages, and more! Provides hours of fun and learning for the entire family! The special “Certificate of Achievement” located in the back of the book serves as an excellent award your child can display after completing the activities.
This Interactive DVD and Resource book is $41.90 Retail price, and you can get it at Nest Learning for $34.95. They have a special right now for $28.95!

Would you like to win an Interactive DVD and Resource book?

Nest Learning has offered to sponsor a giveaway to one special Sassyfrazz reader! I have a

George Washington Interactive DVD and Resource book to have for a giveaway! Retail value at $41.90, this is a great home school resource! It is just a great educational tool to add to your home to learn our history. This 30-minute educational video shows George Washington at his best -- courageous, determined, humble, brave, and patriotic.

Hello!

We home educate our three children,
too. Our 3 love the Nest Animated
Heroes series that our library has
just purchased (whew--sure helps
our budget :) It's so hard to
decide which one we like most --
maybe Florence Nightengale,
Marco Polo, The Wright Brothers, Ben Franklin (or any and all of the others :)
I would love to be able to use the
George Washington resource that you are kindly offering with our
studies here!

Blessings to you,
Barb
