Dreamland Social Club

Dreamland Social Club by Tara Altebrando was such a good book that I couldn’t stop reading it. It all starts with Jane and her older brother, Marcus, inheriting their grandfather’s  house on Coney Island.

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie is an inspiring and hilarious movie. The movie highlights the Glee cast from their summer 2011 concert tour singing the songs they sang in the television show. You also have a chance to see the cast getting ready for the concerts backstage but they still stay in character. They also have stories of three ultimate Glee fans and how Glee changed their life. This movie makes you think that being yourself is okay. That who you are is who you are. That’s exactly what Glee is. This was a good movie that my friends and I really enjoyed. I’ve never watched Glee on television but I thought the movie was cool, especially in RealD...

NxtApp 4 Kids

NxtApp 4 Kids is a great way to teach kids how to add and subtract to figure out the pattern. The game is available for iOS devices available at the iTunes app store. They have multiple games to play, which makes learning fun. The concept of the game is to figure out the next number that comes in the pattern. There is a sequence of 4 numbers and one of them is blank. At first it’s really simple, for example 1, 2, __, 4. Then it gets more difficult as you progress, like 4, __, 18,25. At this point you have to use addition and subtraction. So to figure out the missing number, subtract 18 from 25 and you...
