    All right, you lovers of hands-on activities! Here's a good one for you! This game is subtitled "A Creative Way to Build an Endless Number of Sentences Using 250 Puzzle Pieces." Each laminated puzzle piece has a word or punctuation or empty blank. The pieces are color-coded into groups: punctuation, verbs, nouns, articles, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, and personal pronouns. You can choose from a variety of games designed to build knowledge of parts of speech, sentence construction, vocabulary, and punctuation. In one game, you'll build sentences with a blank space for a noun, and the children will find a noun to put into the sentence. In another game, children take turns building sentences one piece at a time. Of course, if you're working with only one child, you can be the other player. In another game, children have to unscramble the puzzle pieces. In another game, players spin a spinner to accumulate pieces until they have enough to build a sentence. There are two other games, and you can even make up your own. As a former English teacher/tutor, I can tell you that with any game like this, you'll encounter words that can appear in more than one part of speech; be on guard against potential confusion. Other than that caveat, I only see two other tiny flaws. The writer of the instructions completely forgot to list the pink-coded personal pronouns in the list of categories, and the cyan blue of the adverbs looks too close to the blue of the verbs. But those are all minor points. Now, you're ready to have loads of fun building sentences and learning grammar. ~ Caryl

       Many of us have ideas to share but struggle to do that effectively, particularly when supporting a thesis or in argumentation. This handy reference focuses on organizing ideas using classical oration style. The book’s first portion defines the components of classical oration - the introduction (exordium, narration, partition), the body (confirmation, refutation), and the end (peroration). The second portion explains the sequence for building an effective essay or speech: choosing proofs and supporting them and refuting arguments while combining them into a coherent whole. This text would serve well as a supplement/guide for those using the classical educational approach. An appendix provides a sample essay and speech. 6x8”, 71 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    This handy guide is ideal for use by students, teachers, writers, or anyone else who could use a comprehensive reference to help them develop their encoding and decoding (spelling and reading) skills. It contains a simple but complete list of spelling and phonics rules to build your proficiency in these areas. The spelling rules are arranged by topic, including vowel and consonant rules, words with specific endings, plurals, possessives, capitalization, commonly confused word pairs, and many more. The bulk of the phonics rules are organized by individual letter from A to Z. Two appendices contain game suggestions and a thorough list of homophones. This makes a very beneficial resource for any school. 101 pgs. - Melissa

       Peer reading/evaluating is a valuable skill to build strong writers—and it’s one even budding writers can learn to employ.

The largest portion of the book teaches students how to give helpful compliments as well as suggest improvements. Insets show how to mark up a text, and throughout the book key vocabulary terms are highlighted and marked. Includes a glossary, extra references and an index. 7 1/4x9 1/2", 24 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Become a better writer in a month? It's possible if you spend 20 minutes a day (5x a week) with this book. Students can use this by themselves or you could use it in a class setting. Follow the 19 lessons in order as each new skill builds on the last. Writing is a process after all. At the beginning are tips for success on essays and exams, like avoiding clichés and hyperbole. A pre-test helps determine what you already know. Lessons take you from the planning and organizing stages, how to provide support for your idea, to revising and editing your final document. There is a post-test and some sample essay exam questions and answers. This can probably be used for younger writers if you pread these lessons out, maybe two a week, so they can get more practice at each step and experience writing a good essay. This book is simple to follow and encourages mastery at each phase. ~ Sara

    If you're looking for a Bible overview that is concise and gets right to the main points, check this one out. Each book is described in 2 to 4 pages, with major sections for Title and Style, GPS, Background and Detail. Title and Style gives an overview of the book, writer, and major points covered. GPS and Background provides information on the geographical, cultural, biographical, and historical references. The Detail section explains a few particulars from each book.

    I found the text to be concise and well written, with interesting information that I had not heard before. For instance, in Matthew, the author Cris Rogers gives insights into the life of Herod the Great, both about his character and his accomplishments. One of the building projects was a man-made mountain, constructed for the sole purpose of putting a lavish palace called Herodium on it. Rogers makes the point about Jesus' statement in Matthew 21:21 "say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,'" Jesus may have been referring to this mountain and the power His disciples would have to bring down the evils of this world and throw them into the pits of hell.

    The book also includes lots of color photographs and small maps that add interest and explain some of the text. At the end of the commentary on each book, additional books are suggested if you want to delve more deeply into the topics discussed.

    I believe it would be well worth the few minutes of time that it takes to read the section on a book of the Bible before doing Bible reading for your own personal Bible study. It would also give you some great insights to wow your students if you are leading a study. 204 pgs, sc. ~ Bob
