Products I like*
*I only review products I would really use. I'm often paid to write these reviews because I firmly believe writers should be compensated. I stand behind these products.
Epic! Digital Library
Epic is a really cool digital library that houses e-books, quizzes, videos, and audiobooks. The selection is excellent. For 12 and under.
littleBits Code Kit
I loved this code kit, but the real proof was that Oliver was obsessed immediately. Engaging and makes coding hand's on.
This is an encyclopedia of videos that are all 1,2, or 3 minutes long. They are vetted by teachers and experts, and the videos are high quality.
This is an interactive math app. Oliver was my guinea pig again, and he loved this app. He's not a math fan, but he is a gamer, so this was nice for him.
