When UsaDawgs.com contacted me about reviewing their shoes I was so excited. I checked out their website and ultimately decided upon their Women's 13 inch Sheep Dawg boots. I own dress boots and riding boots for work, but really, do not own weekend or errand running, fun boots. And that's exactly what these are. They are fun, cozy, and super warm boots. I LOVE them! I wore them to work on Thursday for a casual, dress down day and my feet were so warm in them. In fact, when I got home from working (where I teach 22 six year olds and only sit down for my car ride to and from work) my feet were so comfortable and warm that I didn't even take them off once I got home.The entire line of DAWG shoes has low heel impact and much cushioning. I love that I can wear these boots under my flare jeans or over top of my skinny jeans. The fleece lined cuffs of the boot can be worn folded down or flipped all the way up. They are much more versatile than I originally thought.
Dawg shoes supplied me with the complimentary pair of shoes you see in the picture above in exchange for my review. But, readers of Dearly Domestic can enter to win a pair of the Sheep Dawg Boots by entering the Rafflecopter giveaway below or checking out the Dawg Shoes Giveaway tab on my Facebook page:

Rock N' Learn provided me with a copy of their Phonics (Volumes 1 and 2) DVD to review for free. I took these videos to school and shared them with my first grade class. Currently my school is using Fundations as our phonics curriculum. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Rock N Learn went along with the same basic phonics fundamentals as we are already teaching. That made these DVDs a great review tool for my first graders. The first volume is a better tool for the beginning of first grade, while Volume 2 will come in more handy after Christmas as we delve into more difficult phonics rules.
Volume 1 covers short vowels, consonants, blends, digraphs, word families, silent e, phonemic awareness activities, read-along sentences, read-along stories, and sing-along songs. While Volume 2 covers long vowels, vowel combinations, syllables, ending sounds, silent consonants, rule breakers, read-along sentences, read-along stories, and sing-along songs. Both are a little over an hour long.
Rock N' Learn has a wide selection of educational DVDs set to music ranging from math, phonics, and even social studies. They have won numerous awards including: Dr. Toy, Parents' Choice, iParenting, National Parenting Publications, Learning Magazine Teachers' Choice, Early Childhood News, National Parenting Center, and Parent's Guide to Children's Media. They come highly recommended from teachers and parents alike as well.
