MFW Highlights linky & iPad Apps


MFW HH button

 It’s been a wonderful holiday break for our family. 

This past week, we were supposed to complete week 16 in ECC and travel to Germany but that did not happen.  My girls and I began the year gently with just a few lessons a day.

I purchased an iPad at Christmas time.  I wanted to share a few

iPad apps

that my girls have been enjoying during class time this week.

  2. Glad you had a great break! That iPad looks fun;-)

  3. AAAAHHHHHHH! I want an IPAD so badly! :) Glad to hear your Christmas break was wonderful! Thanks for hosting Highlights!

  4. Thanks for sharing the apps! My son is obsessed with Stack the States, I know he will love Stack the Countries too.

  5. Hi Monica, just found your site and it looks great.
    My wife and I are the makers of the Simplex Spelling apps, we're glad to hear that your kids have been enjoying Simplex Spelling Phonics 1.

    We are a homeschooling family as well and designed our spelling apps to teach our own kids how to spell and read, so we designed them with homeschooling in mind. :)

    Just thought that your readers might want to know that we also have a free version entitled Simplex Spelling Free Lite that is available on the app store if they'd like to try it out before making a purchase.

    Wishing you all the best,
