I am glad to finally be able to get at the Christmas stuff down and to get my house back into some semblance of order. I LOVE to see the decorations go up but after a month of kids getting at things and rearranging things and messing things up, I am glad to be able to get it all put away.

Normally when I try and get Princess Belle to practice her math facts, she complains. Math has always been her biggest issue. I always have to work to keep her attention and her interest, however, the first time we used Math Facts NOW she was actually having fun! She enjoyed using it!
Math Facts Now is an easy way to help your child memorize or reinforce their basic Math Facts. Math Facts Now is a simple yet very effective program that will identify weak areas in your child's knowledge of the times tables and basic facts of math, and drill in those specific areas, automatically giving increased drills in those areas. It uses time tested principles to aid in memorization of and speed of recall of basic math facts. This is not a comprehensive Math Program but acts as a supplement to any program you might be using. The program can be used by as many children as you need and is geared for children in grades K-6.
Math Facts Now 2.0 is available for immediate download to your computer for $15.95 or available on CD Rom for $15.95 plus $3.95 shipping and handling. This product will run on Windows 2000, XP ,ME, Vista, and Windows 7. 4.5 Mb of free hard drive space is required. Some of the features of this program are:
- You decide how many problems to give in a specific lesson
- You decide which numbers to drill
- You decide how long your child can take to solve their problems
- You decide how many times your child has to repeat problems they got wrong or took too long to solve
- You can print out a list of your child's weak areas
- The program remembers which problems your child has had difficulty with and gives those back to the child with more frequency
- The program gives the option of giving the student a reward if they complete the lesson with no errors ~ a big hit in my household!
The program keeps tract of the problems your child has difficulty with and gives them the same problem numerous times throughout the lesson. You can print progress reports to see how the student is doing and what areas they need more practice.
I love the fact that my daughter said she was having fun while practicing math facts! The program is not fancy, but it does what it promises ~ practices math facts and drills and gives the student extra help in week areas. It has been a great addition to our math curriculum!For a free online trial or to download a free trial to your computer click here.

She is also making progress in other ways. Look at what she can do now!!
LOVE this product
I love this rice cooker. I have never been able to get my brown rice to turn out the way I like it but I have used this rice cooker several times and it cooks my brown rice perfectly. I even used it to cook up some veggies and rice to cook my entire meal. It is super easy to clean and to use.
