Sargent Art White Board Crayons {Review}

This product was another one I chose as part of the CSN offer I recently accepted. Unfortunately, my review of this product is not a positive one. (This will be my only negative review of the products I received.)

Let me start by first saying that Brynne will love these when she is wanting to draw on the white board. They are fun crayons that do wipe off (with some work) and she can do some creative artwork with them.

For me, however, I would not use them for school work. They did not write as smoothlly as dry erase markers.

This is a sentence dictated by Brynne. The top one in green is with an Expo marker. The bottom one in blue is with a white board crayon being reviewed today.

And, erasing them was too much work!

Wiping a white board eraser down the sentences one time.
Rubbing the white board crayon with an eraser several times.
Wiping across it one time with a paper towel.
Residue left after erasing "completely" with a paper towel.

When I am working on the white board, I need to be able to write quickly and erase quickly to move on to the next thing.

I would not buy these crayons again.


  1. Thanks for the input; I too, need transition on my white board to be quick & efficient. It is my favorite homeschool item. =)

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
