Happy 1st Bloggy Birthday to Raising Samuels Homeschool!
A year ago this month, I had about 250 page views as I had not made my blog public yet. I am proud to say that I now have over 13,000 page views which may not sound like a lot to some bloggers, but I know the hard work it took me to get here. I was blessed to be a part of two contributor blogs last year, Satisfaction Through Christ and Sew Crafty Angel. I was also awarded The Liebster Award for up and coming blogs.
It is still a learning experience for me as I dig deeper into what I want the message of my blog to represent and finding better ways to have a more clean design. Hopefully, I will be able to do this by the summer. My goal is to one day be able to speak at conventions and write a book. It's been wonderful getting to network with others and for my readers to get to know me and what I am about. I appreciate all of you and your support!
For right now, I am going to continue to share our homeschool stories, events, field trips and places to find amazing curriculum and resources for free or discounted. I also enjoy writing inspirational articles about how God is working in my life, to help encourage others. I have also started to do product reviews recently, and am thankful for the companies and people who send their hard work and efforts to me for an honest review.
I was given a complimentary copy of The Periodic Table of Elements Coloring Book by: Teresa Bondora for an honest review.
When I was younger, I was taught the first thing you do when you look at a book is to turn it over on the back and see what it is about. On the back of this amazing book, is an endorsement from the infamous Janice VanCleave, a household name for science to any homeschool Mom or educator! I knew this book would be outstanding with an endorsement like that!
The author Teresa Bondora, is also a homeschool Mom but she was a high school science teacher for 8 years before this, and was distressed out how science was taught. She has also worked with special education children and was able to convey her love of science to have the children understand the concept behind the Periodic Table. She didn't understand why Chemistry was not introduced until middle or high school and why so many parents and educators were afraid to teach this subject to their children and students.

There are two pages per element. On one side is a description and facts of the element, and at the bottom is a brief history of who discovered the element and how it came to be. I was so excited to see this! Not only are you getting the science behind it, but she also provides a history so you can use this book for science and social studies! On the opposite page, are illustrations by: Ty Mullery for your child to color and relate more to the element in a visual sense.
The possibilities with this book are endless! It is designed for an elementary level but it is such a powerful tool that you can use with your child or student for the length of their academic path. Teresa has done a fantastic job of taking something as scary as the words Chemistry and Periodic Table of Elements, and making it real and teachable to students, parents, and educators alike! I would highly recommend this book to any homeschooler or educator!
