Just so bright and vivid full of fun for my kids of varying ages. This has been a great addition to our homeschool.
I love this magazine so much I decided to subscribe to get them all. Each issue covers the specific country beautifully! There are country specific activities, recipes, stories, words to learn from the language and so much more! I am learning so much while I use it to teach my daughter. These magazines will be a resource for our family for years to come!
I initially got just this edition of OnMission magazine. I was an MK and love missions so I thought it would be neat. Once I got it, I realized it wasn’t some cutesy magazine about Ireland. It is heavy with living articles, handicrafts, maps, missionary stories, additional book ideas and so much more. I immediately subscribed and plan on using these magazines as our geography/missions on every Friday. There are even digital goodies to print off like paper dolls and fine motor practice skills that relate to the theme. Subscribe- you won’t be sorry!!!
I love using On Mission with my rising kindergartener! It’s our favorite part of the school week. I really appreciate digging into a country for a couple of months as opposed to just a week or so. Her retention is so much greater and it takes the pressure off of feeling like you have to cram everything in. The graphics are beautiful and she loved the projects included!
