Simply Fun Giveaway - Trivium Tuesdays #137


Pin It

Welcome to another week of Trivium Tuesdays!  For those of you who are new here today, this is a link-up aimed at encouraging and informing other homeschoolers who use the Classical model of teaching.  Here we can share with each other and learn from one another.


Also, please remember to only link up posts that have to do with homeschooling using the classical model of education.  Thank you for understanding this link-up's theme.

Simply Fun Giveaway!


Did you happen to catch my post, Games for Boys who Like to Think, from a couple weeks ago?  One of the games that I recommended was Betcha Can't Win from Simply Fun.  I am excited to be able to give you the chance to get your own game for free!  Betcha CAN win ;)

I received this game recently from Simply Fun and it was an instant hit!  My favorite part?  It comes with 24 beautiful dice =)  I'm not sure why I like that so much.  In this game, each person rolls all 6 of their dice and tries to add the numbers up to match numbers on the card.  There is strategy involved because you can steal cards from other players and you can split your dice by putting some on one card and some on another.  My son asks to play this all the time.  I like that you could also tweak the rules and have your child use other math operations (like multiplication or subtraction) to make the game more difficult as your child grows.  Highly recommended!

Featured Post from Last Week


I know everyone's minds are on Christmas and all the related festivities of this time of year.  Many of you linked up these types of posts last week and I enjoyed reading them!  Even so, the most clicked post from last week wasn't holiday related at all.  It is my feature for this week.  Tonia, from The Sunny Patch, shares how her daughter is using the Logic Stage level of Harmony Fine Arts.  If you have a middle grades child, check it out!

Harmony Fine Arts is a sponsor here, and whatever age child you have, I recommend checking out the rest of what they have to offer!


This Week's Link-Up


Here are the rules:
  • Your post must have to do (in some way) with classical homeschooling (any age children).
  • Your post may be from your archives as long as you only post it one time on this link-up.
  • Please link to your direct post, not your blog in general.
  • Please link back to this post in some way. You can use my Trivium Tuesdays button (found on my right sidebar) if you'd like so others can learn about this link-up! Button code: <a href="http://www.livingandlearningathome.com/" target="_blank" title="Trivium Tuesdays"><img alt="Living and Learning at Home" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ZNtNfqeG_W4/U0qj7mUZCfI/AAAAAAAAFbo/vhEStFGbogw/s1600/Trivium+Tuesdays+-+button.png"/></a>
  • It may be helpful to state in your link description what stage of the trivium or what subject your post is about, if applicable, so others can easily find posts they are interested in looking at.
  • Remember, everyone loves comments =) So don't be shy, and tell someone if you liked their post!


I reserve the right to remove any link-up that does not have to do with classical homeschooling.         

If you are a regular here at Trivium Tuesdays and have something to share that is a little off topic, but still would be an encouragement to the readers here, please still share it =)  I'm referring to people who are just trying to get their blog more exposure without following the rules above.

I will visit each of your blogs this week and feature my favorite link-up for all to see next week!  Also, if your blog has a button I will place it on my sidebar (under Friends to Visit) for the week until it is replaced by the next week's favorite =)
