What better way to distract us from our mum duties than by joining yet another exciting giveaway! That is why I am much delighted to share with you another giveaway this time around brought to us by our friends from Momble Philippines. The mechanics sure are easy-peasy so you can do it in between diaper-changing, breastfeeding or helping your tots with their homework, in case of mums with school-aged kiddos like me.

Online resources for mums sure are a gem. I recall relying on a number of online parenting forums during my first year as a mum while trying to learn the ropes and trying to survive with only too few hours of sleep each day. It was a relief to learn of other mothers’ parenting and birthing stories and the online communities have been sources of joy, mines of valuable tips and information, while providing mums with enough socialization with other mums who were experiencing the same thing and worrying over the same concerns. I am sure that Momble Philippines will serve exactly the same purpose as my online parenting forum of almost 5 years ago. I know that a lot of new mums and mums-to-be will immensely benefit from its features and tools. Read on to know more about this new social media site created in Australia especially for mums and do not forget to read through to the end for the details on how you can join our new giveaway! 🙂

Product Review: 10Monkeys Math’s World

online resources for mums, tot schooling, reviews, other reviews

If there is one thing you can do to make your little one’s penchant for your gadgets work to your advantage, it is to fill it with apps and games that not only the children will enjoy playing over and over again, but are also fun and educational. One such apps is 10monkeys Math’s World. I was given the chance to sample it, I opted for the website version and immediately downloaded  it onto the computer so that Jared might be able to give it a go. I was skeptical at first knowing that my son would request for other games or site that he was familiar with, but I was really surprised when we were able to finish a number of exercises in one sitting and seeing my little one actually enjoying Math and getting the hang of counting numbers and counting in sequence which we have not really done before.

10Monkeys Math’s World in a nutshell

online resources for mums, tot schooling, reviews, other reviews

10Monkeys Math’s World is an educational site that will allow you to introduce the concept of counting and numbers to your smaller children at home. It is also a great tool for mums with school-aged children to practice counting at home and allow the kids to master number patterns, sequencing, and number familiarization.

The site is subdivided into 4 categories:

  • 0-10
  • 0-20
  • 0-100
  • 0-1,000
  • Geometry {in progress}

Each category is made up of different activities and exercises that will hone children’s Math skills. The different categories also made it very easy for mums to gauge and decide on the most appropriate ones to try or practice with their children, depending on the kids level of learning and skills. Exercises are suitable for children in Kindergarten and for those in Grades 1-3. Under each category, there are different activities on Number Recognition, Addition, Subtraction, Money and Text Problems that mums and children can try. Even teachers can use it for their class as the site also has a “School” format.

At the end of each activity, a child will be scored and shall also be awarded for finishing each exercise in a category. It is an added attraction as the little ones will surely be excited to finish each exercise knowing they will get to have a reward in the end. For mums and teachers, an evaluation tool is also available enabling us to assess our children’s progress as we go through the different exercises on the categories most appropriate for them.
