Brush up on those Math skills with FactorTree!



I am a BzzAgent. And as a BzzAgent, I had the opportunity to try out The Factor Tree.

The Factor Tree is a place where students from Kindergarten to 6th Grade can practice the math skills they learn in school every day! And parents are able to check in on the progress of their child, with test results on their homepage!

My daughter is in 2nd grade and she struggles with math. This is a great tool for her to practice some of the skills that need some work, without having the pressure of a timed test, or the distractions of a crazy 2nd grade classroom.

There are tons of things I love about this site, but there are some things I don't like too. Let's start with signing up. In a few clicks, we were signed up and ready to start. It was a little confusing, at first, because in order to have my daughter start testing, I had to log out of my user account, and log in with hers. I won't tell you how long it took me to figure this out, but I was pretty peeved! :)

After figuring that out, we logged out and logged back in with her unique user name and password. You can set up however many children you want, and they all have separate user names and passwords, so there's no competition to do as well or better than your siblings!

After logging in my daughters account, the main page was a start button.
Simple enough.

Then we proceeded to answer the 20 question test (it keeps track of your progress for you). The questions ranged from choosing the correct name for a rectangle, to greater than(>) and less than (<), and adding double digits. There was even some adding of currency.


I found some of the questions to be WAY beyond my second grader, and others to be so simple a preschooler could answer them. There is a HINT button to help you though the tougher questions.

The test itself is pretty easy to navigate. However, instead of giving a 2nd grader a lesson in running the keyboard to figure out how to type the < sign (which is Shift + < ), there should be more kid friendly options, like having to click the correct symbol on the screen. She made it through all of the questions and was a little bummed that you had to hit a back button in order to see whether you got them right or not. She wanted to see when she got something wrong. Now it was my turn. We logged back out of her account, and logged back into mine (pain!). I went to her progress report and was not only able to see the amount of time it took her, and her test score, I could actually go into the test itself and see which problems she got wrong. We went through the test together, finding a lot of smiling happy faces, and a few red sad faces. We were able to discuss which questions she got wrong, and what she needed to change to get them right. It was a great tool!




Overall, I love the concept of the site. Letting your child practice at their own pace, and being able to track their progress is very beneficial as a parent. Especially as a parent of a child struggling with math. I think the site could use a little work, though. Logging in and logging out is a huge pain in the behind. And your child not being able to see when they do something wrong is kind of a bummer. I'd love for the test to tell her when she's done something wrong, and maybe walk her through how to do it correctly. And I'd also like to see a more kid friendly test that doesn't require them to waste time searching all over the keyboard.

Another downside, $20 a month for a subscription. Really, something like this I'd expect to be more like $5 a month. But if your child is truly struggling in math, this is a great place for them to catch up to the rest of their class. And $20 a month is a small price to pay for that peace of mind, I guess.

So thank you to The Factor Tree and BzzAgent for giving me the opportunity to try out the site!

2 Full Sized bottles of Proactiv Solutions Refining Mask #GIVEAWAY - Ends 11/14 **UPDATED** Added 2 more products!!

******This giveaway is closed. See winner HERE******

****UPDATE: I've decided to sweeten the pot a little! Along with the 2 Full Sized bottles of Proactiv Refining Mask, I'm also including Proactiv's Oil Blotter Sheets (130 sheets), and the Proactiv Advanced Blemish Treatment (.33 oz)! What a great deal! There will still be only one lucky winner of all 4 products!

I use Proactiv on a regular basis. I love it! I've struggled with adult acne for a few years now, and it's hard to find products that aren't made for teenagers. Proactiv tackles the toughest skin issues, gently and effectively. I had ordered a starter kit from Proactiv and was impressed with all of the products. So I decided to keep the shipments coming! One of the best things about the kits, is the fact that you can customize your order any way you like! Say you love the Renewing Cleanser and the Green Tea Moisturizer, but aren't a big fan of the Spot Treatment. That's ok! You just go online to your Proactiv account and choose which products you'd like more or less of.

The Refining Mask deep cleans and helps to minimize pores. The box says "A rich, deep-cleansing mask formulated with Sulfur, a proven acne-fighting ingredient. This soothing skin care treatment deep cleans to help clear up acne blemishes, and minimize the appearance of pores. The result: a beautiful, more refined complexion."

Kay Ingredients:
Vitamin E - an antioxidant that helps protect from free readicals, sooth and nourish skin.
Vitamin F Complex (Omega-6 and Omega-3) - helps to retain moisture.
Tea Tree Oil - an essential oil with antioxidant, antiseptic and cleansing properties
Geranium & Lemongrass - extracts that condition the skin

So, the reason I'm giving away 2 bottles of the Refining Mask isn't because I don't love the product. It's that I didn't realize, at first, that you could customize the kits and I was sent two more shipments with products I wasn't out of yet! But that's OK, because I love my readers and I'm glad to share my excess with you guys!


I am giving away 2 full sized (1 oz) bottles of Proactiv Refining Mask. **PLUS: Proactiv's Oil Blotter Sheets (130 sheets), and the Proactiv Advanced Blemish Treatment (.33 oz)!  There will be ONE winner that will receive all four prizes.

So here's what you gotta do.

Get FROM DUST AND ASHES book download FREE


Visit the author Tricia Goyer's website and get a free download of her book From Dust to Ashes, brought to you by Amazon. 

From Dust and Ashes depicts the true physical and emotional hardshis endured at Mauthausen and Gusen concentration camps. This is a valuable, much-neede book for every person to read. The book mirrors my memoirs.
Leroy Woychick
US Army Veteran, 11th Armored Division


From Dust and Ashes is a remarkable portrayal of God's transforming power in the aftermath of war. Tricia Goyer invites us on a journey into the lives of three unlikely friends who find hope in the midst of destruction and love from the dust and ashes. Highly recommended.
Mario Schalesky
author of the Winds of Freedom series


From Dust and Ashes is a must-read. Although written in fiction form, it beautifully relates the feelings and anxieties of the victims of the German concentration camps, as well as the German non-Nazi civilian experiences after the war. Tricia Goyer did a great job in researching by humanizing all events based on actual facts. I was with the 11th Armored Division, 41st Cavalr Reconnaissance, in Europe, and being the first on the scene was probably the only GI to actually witness the unelaborated death camps while they still were in full operation.
Thomas C Nicolla
US Army Veteran
11th Armored Division

Personal Microdermabrasion at home!

Ever heard of Microdermabrasion? Ever wished you could try it at home? Me, too!

I am 30 years old and I've been struggling with adult acne for a couple of years now. It's frustrating to wake up and see blemishes, when you're not a teenager anymore. And especially when I never had a problem until I hit my late 20's.

Microdermabrasion at home may be the answer I've been waiting for!

SkinCare Rx is offering two Personal Microderm System ($180 Value)! One giveaway at Catch the Drift with Mama Snow and one at SeeryusMama! And I'm entering to win! I want to finally take control of my problem skin before it's too late!


If you'd like to enter, visit Catch the Drift with Mama Snow or SeeryusMama (or both!) and share why you would like to try the system! Easy!

Enter HERE for Catch the Drift with Mama Snow: http://hail2thesnowqueen.blogspot.com/2010/08/personal-microderm-review-and-giveaway.html

WINNER of the CSN Stores $60 GC!!

$60 CSN Stores #GIVEAWAY **ENDED**

***This giveaway has ended. The WINNER is comment 54, mamawj! Congrats!



CSN Stores is a one stop shop for just about anything you can think of! With over 200 stores to choose from, you'll definitely find what you are looking for. And at a great price! They have furniture from headboards to sofas. School supplies like markers and paper. And cookware like frying pans and cutlery. Check out my review of their Nordicware Grill Griddle here!

A little while back, I ordered a Highland Feather Down Touch Feather Bed for my son.



He is a tosser at night and I figured it had to be his mattress. Since we can't afford to replace his mattress every time he doesn't sleep well, we decided on the feather bed option. After sleeping on the feather bed for a while now, he's like a whole new kid! He falls asleep fast and stays asleep! Fantastic!

I didn't know anything about feather beds, but CSN Stores has all of the information you might need on each product page. Not only do they have specs for every product, they tell you how many are in stock, and they give you construction quality and shipping damage probability based on customer reviews. There's so much info available, I ended up with a product I love, even though I knew nothing about them. It's hard to shop online and trust the quality of a product by a picture. CSN Stores takes out all the guesswork!

And now for the giveaway!

Disclaimer:
CSN Stores contacted me to offer a giveaway of a gift certificate. I was not compensated in any way for my review. I purchased the feather bed on my own. Please see my complete Disclosure/Acknowledgement Policy HERE.
