Studypod Book Holder (A Review)

My chiropractor would absolutely love this product!
If I was one of those fearless, door to door salespeople I would take a bunch to his office and see if I could sell them there. But, since that is not my gift in life, I will just enjoy telling you all I can about the Studypod here.

Are you concerned about your child hunching over their textbooks while studying? This easy-to-assemble, very affordable product will alleviate that concern of yours.I am having to help my 10 yr. old learn some vital study skills this year and one of those is not laying her head on the table while studying! Talk about getting sleepy and losing much needed attention span!

The Studypod keeps the textbook/notes to study from in eye range and encourages good posture. With reduced neck and eye strain and improved posture and oxygen flow, your child will retain more information which can reduce study time while improving quality. This new tool invented by Phil Rucinski, will foster a good study habit that will last a child from elementary grades through adulthood! My first grader is already utilizing this when he has to do copy work or practice writing spelling words. Would you like to know how it works? Go here to watch a video or download a PDF file.

The Studypod comes in 3 different colors: black, pink and blue. You may purchase one unit for $19.95 and if you buy two or more you can purchase them at a discounted price of $16.95 each.
Studypods can be ordered online here and if you have any questions, contact information is here. Oh, and here is something special for my readers. A discount code! Take $5 off your order with the code TOSBLOG5.

This product is also available for reselling and fundraising. So rethink your PTA selling cookie dough this year and get students studying smarter and finishing faster with the Studypod!

Thanks to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine and Studypod for this review opportunity!

Monday School Freebie 9-21-09

Monday, Sept 21st:
The Soldiers' Pocket Bible (PDF ebook)
The Soldier's Pocket Bible is a booklet/tract that was first issued by
Oliver Cromwell in 1643 during the English Civil War for the use of the
Commonwealth Army. The little book consists of Bible passages, arranged
topically, which might be of most help to a soldier. It was later re-issued
in 1861 at the very beginning of the American Civil War, an exact reproduction
(with only some spelling changes) of the 1643 edition. The quote on the title
"Trust in the Lord and keep your powder dry,"
was Oliver Cromwell's famous battle cry to his troops.

Rocket Phonics (A Review)

I have once again been so fortunate in receiving another excellent tool to use in the education of my children. I know you will all agree that being able to read and read well is necessary no matter what you are learning. A child/adult that reads well can pick up a book and teach themselves most anything. Schoolwork can be done more independently if a child can read and comprehend directions.

Up until this summer, I have used Hooked On Phonics to help in teaching my son how to read and been pleased with the results. However, when I was offered to review Rocket Phonics, created by Stephen Guffanti, M.D., I thought it would be a nice change of pace to use this in starting off Redd's 1st grade year.

I have been 'blasted away' by his progress! He was doing well with Hooked On Phonics but struggled a bit with the reviews that mixed different word groups together. With Rocket Phonics, that struggling has definitely decreased! Now when we are reading a book together and I have him try to sound out new words, he is much more successful!

I love games and believe they are a wonderful tool in teaching and reviewing with students.
The Rocket Phonics kit comes with all kinds of games that engage the senses and encourage physical activity as well!

For your children ages 3-5, the kit includes lots of big-movement, sensory games like Letter Leap where they jump onto a big letter when you say a sound. There are phonemic awareness games you can play with your kids of all ages as you go through your day. This skill of hearing and using the smallest sound parts of words is so important: it's the #1 skill tied to reading success.

Other games included in the kit include Bingo pages as different sounds are introduced (my 4 yr. old loves these), and Treasure Hunt games that use clues and riddles to encourage readers to move to new levels of reading.

If you have a child that is easily distracted, a rocket peeker is included that has a small window to show only the sound/word your child is reading. Decorating it themselves is an added bonus!

Do you have a child that is frustrated because the English language has so many words that don't sound like they look? Well, Rocket Phonics encourages children by giving them a chance to see the word as it looks as well as how it sounds.

In addition to the kit you receive in the mail you will be richly rewarded with 28 weekly emails that include the following:
Super Spelling Strategy: This multi-sensory several-step approach is nearly foolproof. This is a combination of steps from spelling specialists that combines visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning.
Beginning Writers’ Lessons: Perfect for kindergarten or first grade, these 12 guided lessons teach your child to write a good, organized paragraph. Each comes with a bit of instruction, like start each sentence with a capital letter or use a period to show the end of a statement.
Additional games (Bingo, Treasure Hunts,Simon Says,and riddles)
Extra reading practice for grades pre K-6 (fiction, non-fiction and poetry)

The price is right for Rocket Phonics! You can pay the price of $160 upfront or make 3 payments of $53.34.
Each Rocket Phonics kit comes with:

2 Rocket Phonics Readers
Two sets of symbol cards
Bingo chips
Word lists for testing
Helpful teaching tips
(and don't forget all the email bonuses!)

Ordering is easy!
Call 888-377-4664, or Contact Them:Rocket Phonics,P.O. Box 1411,Vista, CA 92085-1411

During September, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Electrolux and Kelly are holding a "Text-a-Thon for a Cause" to help raise support for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund whose mission is to fund research to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.

Throughout September, you can donate $5 to the cause by texting "KELLY" to 85944 from your mobile phones (standard text messaging rates apply) - or logging on to Also, every time you log on to the Web site, you'll be entered for a chance to win an amazing contribution to your home - a luxury front load washer and dryer from Electrolux in Turquoise Sky, the color inspired by the teal ribbon of ovarian cancer awareness.

Also during September, visitors to Kelly Confidential can help spread awareness for this important cause by sending a virtual T-shirt to a friend. For every virtual t-shirt sent, Electrolux will donate $1 to the OCRF. Fashion-forward Moms can also purchase a limited edition T-shirt designed by Ripa; 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will go to OCRF.
