Amazing Apps for you iPod, iPad, and Android | Ability Times

Ability Times a blog for students with disabilities at Tunxis Community College lists some useful apps!  I’m going to be checking a few of these out.  Especially the readers, and organizers and recorders.  It’s always like a treasure hunt.

D and I have been having a great time with our new online Science program.  Supercharged Science.  Nothing like good science to get you fired up!  Love the way you gather a box full of stuff around the house plus a few extras and away you go one fun experiment after another.  Science just makes the whole world light up.

Online Reading for Kids | StudyDog

 

Online Reading for Kids | StudyDog.

We are loving this supplement to our language material.  Not to many online language programs really put as much attention on memory and auditory skills.  He spent 3 or more hours at it today.  He especially loved that he could see his success, it was fast paced, not too juvenile, and he could see the goal, and what was next! Perfect for us.

Poor and Gluten Free Gluten Free on a Budget

 

Poor and Gluten Free Gluten Free on a Budget.

For years I lived with an allergy everyone shook their heads at.  It was so great to find others on the internet that were equally effected.  I crave fresh cold crunchy veggies and fruits….just not the swelling and itching that goes with it. This is also a very nice Gluten free site, that I am enjoying now that my son and I have gone Gluten Free.  We are also moving forward without corn syrup, meat, poultry, and processed sugar.  So far so good.  Not so hard now with so many available products and a wealth of information and recipes online, not to mention a growing community of others that are changing the way they keep themselves nourished.
