Free Fun Way to Stop Summer Learning Loss for K-12th Grade Online PowerMyLearning.org

*Sponsored Post - All opinions expressed here are my own. I will only endorse products and services that I feel are in the best interest of my readers. Thank you for your support.

I can't believe school is just right around the corner.  I feels like summer break just started a few days ago.  Where do all those summer days and nights go?  And another very important question to ask yourself as a parent; where does your child's learning and school retention go during summer break?

I know as a parent of a Kindergartner and a 2nd Grader, the thought of what seems to disappear out of my children's brains during the heat of summer is very concerning.  These concerns have lead me to seek out ways to make sure their little developing brains receive some much needed educational stimulation.

So I was recently given the opportunity to review a great FREE online educational site with games that blend things your children already love like animals, trains and for those of you with girls, even fashion.

This Free learning site can be used by children in grades K - Kindergarten through 12th Grade.  It is called PowerMyLearning.org and yes like I said it is Free.  So you are not out anything to give it a try.

Let me share my opinion about it features and let you know what my two boys thought...actually I should say my three boys as my son going into the 4th Grade wanted to be part of this online fun.

Before I continue with my review. I must not forgot to mention that it is simple and quick to sign up for a free account on PowerMyLearning.org. It took me less than a minute and I was or should I say my boys were ready to play online educational games. Who knew learning could be so much fun!

I am going to focus on the online math games via PowerMyLearning.org.  I love how bright and simple this online free site was to find exactly what you are looking for.  There are nice big tabs on the left hand side of the page which will lead you into the appropriate educational area.  And when you scroll over the tab it will give you an additional menu.

For example the Math tab, when scrolled onto extends so you can select the grade - and when you scroll over the grade it again opens to show many different categories of appropriate free online games for your student.

I love as a parent when I select the appropriate category for my child I can see right away a screen shot from the game, simple description and a star rating as to what others thought of the game.  I am still amazed at the number of games in each category.

My youngest son has fallen in love with the online math game called Trains (PBS) and it features his favorite monkey, Curious George.

I like that PowerMyLearning makes it easy and much safer for my children to be online and find appropriate and educational games to learn from.  If you noticed my youngest son loves the game Trains which is on the PBS page.  But PowerMyLearning.org  used a free platform which makes thousands of the best online learning activities easily accessible and usable in one trusted place.  (A Parent's Dream!) 

I do have to help my youngest navigate the site.  But that is fine with me as I can help him and know exactly what he is up to.

My 2nd Grader loves a game called Spring Flowers.  He likes it as he can compete with his older brother.  The game can also be played by a single person.  It focuses on the Math area of Geometry.  I can't wait to see how he does this year at school.

So now any free time we have they are asking if they can play a computer game.  Little do they know how much they are learning (love it!).

Learn more about PowerMyLearning.org via their social media.


Don't let your child lose an average of 2.5 months of academic growth (called the Summer Slide) over the Summer!  Make learning fun for your children.  Try the Free Online Learning Game Site called PowerMyLearning.org.

OraMD All Natural liquid Toothpaste Mouth Rinse and Breath Freshener Giveaway / Review 3 Winners! US/Canada

Disclaimer: OraMD provided me with a free samples of their product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

All Natural....Liquid Toothpaste....And Mouth Rinse....And Breath Freshener!

Did I catch your attention?  How about Giveaway Chance for US/Canada - with 3 winners?
 

Well I hope I did as OraMD is a revolutionary Mouth Product  (at least that is my opinion,now!)

Yes, one little flavorful bottle can provide three different dental/oral hygine purposes.  And when you look at what it takes you currently to achieve all 3 of these - how much money does it cost you a month?

Well according to TrustedHealthProducts the providers of OraMD - if a person uses OraMD they can save up to 39% in there monthly cost of their dental/oral hygine products.  What a great savings...and OraMD also have other noteworth features like:

  • Pure Ingredients – 100% Natural Almond, Spearmint and Peppermint Oils
  • These Ingredients help create a healthy environment in your mouth
  • Has interdental access, so it gets in between your teeth and those hard-to-clean areas
  • Leaves a fresh and clean feeling unlike anything you’ve ever experienced
  • OraMD ingredients polish teeth
  • Not tested on animals
  • Manufactured in the USA by Trusted Health Products
  • Vegan
  • Safe and effective for everyone ages 3 and up
  • Safe for braces, veneers, bonds, crowns, fillings and dentures

  • The last two features are very important to my family and myself.  As I have young boys and I like the fact that it is safe to use with all of them - even my son that just turned 5 and my 8 year old that just got out of his braces and now has to use a retainer. 

    And don't worry about trying a new product.  I understand the fear of the unknown and spending money and not knowing if a product is going to work.  OraMD offered a One Full Year, 100% Money Back Guarantee – No Questions Asked.
    I like that OraMD has sold over 1/2 Million Bottles in the last 12 years.  That says a lot!  And this product is endorsed by Dr. Tom McGuire a world renowned dentist and leading authority on preventive dentistry.
    OraMD is very simple and easy to use. 


  • Step 1 – Brush twice a day in the morning and evening using 2-5 drops of OraMD on a toothbrush and brush normally. Do not swallow.
  • Step 2 – Floss every evening before brushing – more frequently as needed. Get any food particles out from between teeth.
  • Step 3 – Use OraMD as mouthwash twice a day: morning and evening. Just put 1-2 drops into an ounce of water, swish and gargle. This is important to kill the bacteria in the entire mouth including the back of tongue.
  • Step 4 – Mid-morning, mid-afternoon and as needed: put 1-2 drops on the tip of the tongue to coat the gum line and teeth to kill bacteria and keep breath fresh.

  • I found OraMD to be very refreshing and cooling in my mouth.  I agree that it can seem very strong when you first start to use it, but it does lessen as the days pass.  I know I have received many compliments on my minty fresh breath when I use OraMD.  A bottle is suppose to last a month or longer.  Which is amazing!

    Well Wisdom Vital Whey Protein 100% Natural

    Disclaimer: Well Wisdom provided me with a free sample of their product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

    I love being back in shape and search the markets (online and in the stores) for new ways to incorporate healthier food choices.  And I am especially on the look out for new ways to enjoy protein.  As I start every morning with a protein shake.  I find it helps keep me satisfied and maintains my energy level.

    So when I found out Well Wisdom was going to send me a full size container of one of their Vital Whey products; I was thrilled.

    Of course I had to research their 100% Whey Protein and see why it is different from other proteins out on the market today. 

    I was pleasantly surprised to find out it is VERY DIFFERENT...In a Great Way.

    I love that Well Wisdom uses only the Finest Biologically-Active Non-Denatured Whey Protein.  Each container is hormone-treatment free and the cattle are grass fed year round. 

    So what does that mean to me?  It means I can mix up a serving for myself and/or my children and know it is safe. 

    Vital Whey is easy to mix up - but you need to follow the serving suggestions.  Vital Whey is best served when combined with room temperature or cold water, coconut water, milk or milk substitute.  Just make sure your add the powdered Vital Whey slowly and stir it with a spoon or fork.  But it is most easily mixed with a shaker bottle.  And lucky me I have one, I use all the time! 

    It is a proprietary, non-denatured, native whey protein that is produced to maintain the full range of all the fragile immune-modulating and regenerative components naturally present in fresh raw milk.

    I really enjoy that such a pure product can make a substantial different in my life as well as my children's lives.
    vitalwheychart.jpg

    Vital Whey:
  • Provides all the essential amino acids in correct balance*
  • Improves muscle strength*
  • Helps with overall health and energy levels*
  • Promotes antioxidant production (Glutathione precursors)*





  • I think what I like the most about Vital Why is one scoop is all you need for a 4oz to 8oz glass (provides 15 grams of protein per serving).  I was surprised the first time I mixed it up - as it does grow or should I say foam. 

    But it is delicious tasting.  I chose the Natural Cocoa flavor and it is just that.  It tastes so pure and not overly chocolaty.

    I use my serving as a post workout meal (and sometimes pre workout).  My boys love it as a healthy snack.

    *sponsored post*
    As a parent and mother of 3 young and impressionable boys I am always trying to provide them with any and everything they need.  But, many times I feel that parents want to give their children "stuff" and more "stuff".  The problem with that is they forget the most important gift.  The gift of a great education.  An education that they are actually learning and retaining most of what is being taught.

    Conair Carbon Smooth Thermal Brush and AdjustaCurl Rollers Giveaway and Curl Infiniti Pro Innovation Review $25 Value

    Disclaimer: Conair and Robin Leedy & Associates provided me with a free samples of their product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

     
    Even thought the heat is on, doesn't mean you can't look your best!

    Actually looking stunning with all the new and great hairstyles the stars are sporting is easier than one thinks.

    And thanks to a great free package from Conair I have had the opportunity to try out Conair's newest hair products that feature the latest and greatest technology.

    And not only did I get to try out three of Conair's products.  One lucky person is going to win their own Conair Carbon Smooth Extra-Large Thermal Round Brush and AdjustaCurl Self-Grip Rollers - a $25 Value! 
    Remember how I mentioned about getting the hairstyles of the stars?  Well Conair has made that happen...thanks to their Infiniti Pro Auto-Rotation Curling Iron.

    And I must say I feel like I star when I am using my Conair Infiniti as I feel pampered!  I have never had a curling iron before that did all the work.  I am serious!  I didn't even have to rotate my wrist - the Infiniti did it for me Automatically!

    Check out this great video below explaining how the Conair Infiniti works.
     
    I still can't believe Conair was able to create such a revolutionary haircare product!  The Infiniti Pro has a unique auto rotation clamp that holds your hair in place and spins around in order to create the perfect curl with no effort on your part! 

    The Infiniti Pro barrel is a nice 1" that has a tourmaline ceramic easy glide surface.  This helps create smooth, silky and shiny curls.

    I love how this new technology helps to make maintaining your curling iron much easier. Anyone who has used a curling iron in the past will totally understand what I am about to say. I typically hate the residue that is left on my curling irons of the past. When I would style my hair, my hair care products would be left behind on my curling iron and next to impossible to get off. The Infiniti Pro had corrected this problem and allows for the barrel to be easily cleaned of the residue. That is a huge selling point for me!
    Don't worry that this elite curling iron is going to be too specific and limit your styling choices.  You can style your entire head of hair in curls for or just add a few accent curls.  If you use wider sections of hair, your curls will look looser and more natural.  And if you are looking for star style....stop the rotation of the Infiniti Pro a few inches from your scalp.
     
    I still can't believe Conair's Infiniti has a high heat temperature setting that reaches 400°F.  Don't worry about frying your hair!  There is zero hot spots!  It has a thirty second heat up and magically and evenly distributes the heat so you look salon perfect.
     
    If you are wanting to purchase your own Infiniti Pro Auto-Rotating Curling Iron you can find them at drugstore retailers and other mass market stores and of course from Conair.  Typically the Infiniti sells for approximately $94.99.  But, it is well worth every penny. 
     
    On to the Conair Giveaway Products.....
       
    Conair® Carbon Smooth Extra-Large Thermal Round Brush
    "Shape up and style your hair beautifully like the pros! This sleek looking new brush features the latest Carbon technology. The Carbon properties on the barrel help to quickly blow dry hair, curb flyaways, add shine and reduce static providing gorgeous professional results. The new wavy bristle technology helps to gently grasp hair firmly making blow-dry styling easy! It smoothes and strengthens coarse, curly, or wavy hair and can create soft waves or curls." (Thank you Conair for a great description!).  The average price of this Conair Carbon Brush is $9.99. 
     
    And the other Giveaway to make up this fantastic prize pack is the.....
    Conair AdjustaCurl™ Self-Grip Rollers
     
    "If you’re looking for root volume, lift or customized curls, you can now achieve it all with just one unique hair roller! With Conair AdjustaCurlSelf-Grip Rollers, you can create easy, root volume or curls of any size based on how tight or loose you roll them up.
    To use, start with the adjustable piece out flat and roll it to the size volume or curl you desire. Add extra volume by rolling hair into the root volumizer roller, or, create classic curls, waves or smooth styles by rolling hair into standard rollers. With tourmaline’s iconic technology, the Conair AdjustaCurl™ Self Grip Rollers reduce static electricity, making for a chic and shiny end result. Once you’re finished styling, the Conair AdjustaCurlrollers become flat again to stack and store for ultimate portability."  (Thank you again Conair for your exquisite description of this must have hair accessory!  I still can't believe there average cost is only $14.99.) 
     
    Don't forget to check out Conair on Facebook.  They offer product news, giveaways and helpful hair tips.
     
    Now get busy and enter below for your chance to create hairstyles like the stars.
     
    Good Luck!

    Win Flat Panel SANUS TV Vuepoint Mount F180 Giveaway! $90 Value!

    Disclaimer : SANUS will provided me with a free sample of their product and I was under no obligation to review it if
    I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

    As a mother of 3 young boys, let me tell you about the stress that goes long with many daily activities.  Activities like running across our front room, near our flat screen tv.  A flat screen tv that sits on a pedestal that wobbles every time.  I worry about it falling on them and the possibility of one of them being injured.

    That is why I am super excited to work as a blogger with SANUS as they in turn have partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide.  SANUS knows exactly what I am talking about and even more.  They know due to increasing size and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off
    of furniture and causing injury or even death.


    So SANUS is going to provide me a great free product and also give the same product away to one lucky winner on my blog!  And this product is going to be perfect in my home.  It is called a flat panel SANUA TV Vuepoint Mount F180.  It values at $90!

    I have read a lot about the SANUS TV mounting and tips to make it easier.

    Upere Wedge Sneakers Suede Leather Review

    Disclaimer:Upere provided me with a free sample of their product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

    Just because most of the time I am a simple, easy going girl; doesn't mean I don't like to feel feminine and fashionable.

    So when I was approached by Upere to receive a pair of revolutionary wedge sneakers - how could I say  no!

    I could chose between the Upere Aster Wedge Sneaker - Suede Leather Navy Blue or the Upere Wedge Sneaker - Suede in Black.

    After looking at my choices I selected the black, as the Navy Blue had a yellow colored star on the side and it was a little too blingy for me.  The black was nice and simple!

    The black was perfect for my fashion style and made me feel like a fashion model.  I still can't get over my looking at this sneakers, that they are wedge.
    Look at how flat the bottoms of these Upere Wedge Sneakers are! And let me tell you about the sole.  They are anti-slip rubber and have a nice grip to them.  But, don't let the soles trick you!  There is no doubt these are wedge when you put them on.  I felt so tall in them!  I was amazed at how much wedge actually goes on in these cushy shoes (2" to be exact)

    Yes, I said cushy.  Look at the padded and cushy tongue of these fashion shoes and the sides.  It makes for a very comfortable ride for your feet.

    The suede material used to create these practical yet stylish shoes is so soft, but easy to clean.  It think my biggest issue with these shoes was the smell when they arrived.
    The smell was very strong and reminded me of plastic.  But after I removed them from their very securely packaged coverings (cloth bags and then a specialized covering), and let the air out for about a week.  The smell disappeared.

    What what can I say about Upere Wedge Sneakers?

    I am proud to own such a comfortable pair of fashion wedge sneakers.  The pair I received for my review for free retails for $191.98 but are currently on sale for $169.78.  And if wedge sneakers are not for you.  Upere offers many different style of footwear and even a professional line!
    I almost forget to mention there are no ties to these sneakers.  They are easily and securely worn with three large straps of Velcro.  Simple to put on and take off.


    Thank you Upere for this fun experience.
