    Turn extra classroom minutes into valuable learning time or use this as a way to easily work some art history into your homeschooling day without taking the time for a full program. 180 quick activities cover key artists (Giotto, El Greco, Dali, etc.), artistic styles (Rococo, surrealism, contemporary, etc.), and time periods (pre-historic, Roman, contemporary, etc.). Because the book is small (7.75" x 5.5"), you have to find another resource for viewing the paintings, but in the back, a list of websites is included to view the paintings/sculptures that go with the activities. Make that search part of the student's assignments! You will touch on everything from cave paintings to street graffiti as your students are asked compare the Roman Colosseum with modern sports arenas; describe/draw patterns & shapes found in an animal head carving in Norway; create an advertisement after looking at Toulouse Lautrec's use of text in his posters; and describe some of the themes in more modern photographs. Though recommended for middle grades, this can cross over into all ages with some creative discussions. Reproducible (though not perforated) or you can print copies off of the companion CD-ROM (included). Answer key in the back, 223 pp, sc. ~ Sara

    A collection of 180 (one for each day of the typical school year) quick activities to teach, practice, and/or review commonly confused and misused words. Many homophones such as aisle/I'll/isle, boar/boor/bore, and their/there/they're as well as similar sounding word pairs like elicit/illicit and descent/dissent are covered. Additionally, several lessons on proper word choice are provided. Simple exercises will teach your child when to use (among others) fewer as opposed to less, literally instead of figuratively, and among instead of between. Although the provided exercises simply involve selecting the correct word to complete the sentence, each lesson includes an additional writing exercise suggestion. ~ Enh

    This resource has been written for students that need an extra review of spelling skills. There are 180 one-page lessons, which are written directly to the student. The first 90 lessons consist of homophones and phonics instruction. For example, a lesson includes two homophones with definitions for each and four fill-in-the-blank sentences using the correct homophone. The phonics instruction is a short lesson based on one sound with several words listed as examples. The student is then asked to write a sentence or two using as many phonics words listed as possible. At the end of the lesson, there are six words dictated by the teacher for the student to spell. The last 90 lessons are short lessons on contractions, capitalization, common misspellings, plurals, abbreviations, silent and double letters, prefixes and suffixes. An easy-to-use book for the student and teacher which is effective for those that need a little more review. Reproducible. ~ Gina

    This book can wear many hats (sounds like a homeschooler, doesn't it?). Its 180 lessons/activities systematically review and practice all aspects of grammar. Lessons are typically one page and include a short teaching segment followed by an activity. It's hard to imagine any of them taking more than 5-10 minutes to complete. Occasionally, the one lesson will be all instruction but the following lesson will be all activity. Activities are typically fill-in-the-blank, label, or choose the correct word. Coverage is thorough and beyond-the-basics. In addition to grammar, there is coverage of confusing usage words, sound-alike words, and punctuation/capitalization mechanics. Although there are periodic reviews throughout the book, the last ten lessons provide a comprehensive review. A complete answer key is in the back of the book. The book is "pick-up-and-go" and can be reproduced for families/classrooms. Use it alongside a writing-intensive course to keep language skills current. Use it as the grammar component for a high school English credit. Use it as a reference/handbook as you edit/grade writing papers. Use it as a refresher course prior to taking the ACT/SAT. Use it to brush up on your own grammar and make sure you're "saying it correctly". You pick its hat – or change its hat from year to year. 218 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    Students can keep a record of the books they have read with this journal. Each two-page spread is devoted to one book. The left page has four blank boxes for the student to draw or write interesting things about the book. The right page leaves room to record the book title, author and illustrator, as well as the subject and setting. Children can also copy a quotation and illustration from the book and “rate” the book based on their opinion. All pages are designed with a black and white border that children can color. ~ Gina
