"Everything You Need to Ace..." - Books Your Kiddos Will LOVE.

I know you guys have heard of these fabulous "Everything You Need to Ace...." books by Workman's Publishing that are available on Amazon. They have them for so many topics and are kid/teen friendly. They have them for Science, Math, Language Arts, American History, and now....
Computer Science and Coding.

What I love about these books are they are written in a fun and interactive way that will keep kids engaged and interested! It also headlines that the notes are "borrowed from the SMARTEST KID in Class" and "double checked by an award winning teacher". Ha! Don't we all wish we would have the notes from the smartest kid in class?  Now we have them.

Everything in the "Everything You Need to Ace..." series is straightforward and consistent. Vocabulary words are highlighted in yellow, definitions are in boxes, important items are written in blue, main ideas are underlined, and doodles and charts show the BIG ideas. I also love that the pages are easy to add  your own personal notes to because each page is full of lines. There are also "check your knowledge" sections that allow you to check for understanding... a formative assessment of sorts! 

If you want to keep your kiddos engaged and learning this summer in a fun and engaging way, I definitely suggest any of the "Everything You Need to Ace..." books, but especially their newest one about Computer Science and Coding. Computer Science and Coding is the way of the future and your kiddos will be so ahead of the game if they spend some time digging into this awesome book this summer!

Let me tell yall about my newest obsession... My Cricut Air Explore 2! It's so fun! I held off on getting one for SO LONG because I thought it would be intimidating to use, but boy was I wrong! This little machine has been easy and fun and now that I'm stuck at home for a while, I can't wait to try out some new FUN projects! 

1. Infusible Ink Coasters

If you are like me - you've been using this time at home to clean and organize, so why not add some fun new decorations?! For this project you'll need something that would work for coasters and infusible ink! So FUN!

2. Match Up Your Socks!

We've ALL got Sock drawers full of socks... Am I right? Might as well use this time at home to create some funny socks for all of that couch sitting we are doing! I love the idea of repurposing and old sock and making it FUN! 

3. Decorate Your Home with SPRING Decor

In Alabama Spring has for sure SPRUNG! It is HOT here! Can't wait to make some fun spring decor using some card stock and ribbon I already have on hand! 

4. Send a Card to Someone! 

Everyone loves getting mail, so I am SO excited about this fun find! All you need is card-stock to make the cutest ice-cream card for a friend! 

5. Label EVERYTHING in Your House!

Anyone else organizing ALL THE THINGS in their house right now? The last step to organizing is Labeling! Super excited to label all the bins and baskets in my house and this tutorial is SO helpful!
