Creek Edge Press~TOS Review

Creek Edge Press is a company that brings together many different forms of Classical Education, Charlotte Mason and Montissori.  The task card approach encourages independant learning.  The task cards are non-consumable, which means they can be used over and over again. 

We were sent Geography and Culture Task Cards to review.

This is a course for those in Kindergarten thru 8th grade.  The best thing about this program is that no matter what your child's age or ability this will work. 

We used Geography and Culture task cards.  I loved them.  The first thing I did was punch a hole in the corner and attach a ring.  This kept all the cards in one place. I also had them laminated so the kids can write on them and check the tasks off over and over.  I had my kids pretty much go through this at their own pace.  The library is right up the street, so off they went with notebooks and cards in hand. When they completed a particular task all they had to do was check it off.  I gave each child a different color marker so I could see who had done what.   I SO love this approach that we will be using it again next year. 

Creek Edge Press also has:

Each set includes the task cards and a guide book for the parent/teacher.  If you would like to see their products you can visit their Gallery Page to see them.

They also have a FAQ's page that will help you see how you can incorporate them into your schooling.  They have done all the hard work for you.  You can even read the book list and online resources they have for you.  If you like to read blogs then Creek Edge Press also has one.

**I was given this set free in exchange for my honest review.**
