    I have very fond memories of playing this computer game as a child, so I was excited to take a look at this new and updated edition. I wasn't disappointed, as this edition is even more fun and exciting than the original. It's also a ton more educational than it used to be as well. For those who aren't familiar, this is a game where players fill a wagon with people and supplies and then head West on the historic Oregon Trail. Like real people who traveled the trail, you run into problems like food and water shortages, broken wagon parts, flooded rivers, illness and injuries, stolen supplies, bad weather, getting lost, and more. The game is more realistic than is used to be, as players get more choices on supplies to bring and even different wagon styles. Besides being able to hunt like the original game (with better graphics), players can also fish and forage for food, which is a lot of fun. In this edition, players can select various characters, and they'll share historic facts in a storytelling manner, like you're chatting with pioneers as they share their hopes, fears, and adventures. Another great addition is a storytelling time with Captain Jed Freedman. These are basically mini-movies of Captain Jed sharing true stories around the campfire at night. With all these things combined, I was impressed with the amount of history lessons contained in the game. They break up the daily traveling and trials in a realistic manner as players cross plains, ford rivers, and climb mountains. Students can keep track of their adventures in a trip diary, which can even be printed out at the end of the trip (hopefully when the entire wagon has reached Oregon and not when the last member has died from dysentery). More educational, multicultural, and realistic than past versions, this is the perfect supplement for history studies on this period. But honestly, your children will probably want to play just for the fun of it. A staple of many childhoods, this game has only gotten better with time. System requirements: Windows: 98/2000/ME/XP; Macintosh OS 8.6/9.2/X. ~ Rachel

    It's the same! But, different. Leaving the world of CDs behind, Rosetta Stone Homeschool has taken the leap into the world of online subscription formats. As with every major format change, there are advantages and disadvantages. You will probably like the changes which provide more mobility and more flexibility (unless you do not have access to high speed internet or do not wish to enter the internet world). All the aspects of the Rosetta Stone approach to language acquisition that we've come to love and expect are there. It's just packaged differently.

    So, what's different? First of all, there are only four products (instead of the 70 or so we carried before). Each product is an online subscription. This subscription gives one student 6 months of access. You purchase a subscription then you choose your language as part of the activation process. There are 24 languages available and a subscription purchase lets you choose any one of the 24 (Family Pack subscribers can choose up to three different languages). The subscription also gives you access to ALL levels of instruction available in that language. All languages have at least three levels. Some languages have five levels. If workbooks, quizzes, or tests are available (only for a few languages), access to pdf versions of this material comes with the subscription. Because all content is online, you can access it from a computer, laptop, or mobile device and you can access it from anywhere that you have a fast internet connection. You can even download lessons (with Audio Companion) to use when the internet is not available.

    So, what's the same? The dynamic immersion instructional methodology, the voice recognition software, and the student tracking abilities. In other words, all the good stuff that has made Rosetta Stone distinctive and a favorite with homeschoolers. And there is still a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee if you are not satisfied with the program. To get a sense of the program, check out the video demo found on our website.

    Rosetta Stone's "Dynamic Immersion™" methodology combines multimedia technology with a total immersion approach utilizing four aspects images, intuition, interactivity, and instruction. Real-life images are coupled with words or phrases, both spoken and written. There is constant interaction with the program, making selections which are confirmed if correct. Understanding of the language is built through spoken responses to real-life simulations utilizing TruAccent® speech-recognition technology which listens, analyzes, and corrects the student response. [Headset with microphone is needed but not included.]

    Core Lessons cover: A. Listening & Reading combined; B. Listening only, C. Reading only, D. Speaking, and E. Writing. There are Focused Activities that concentrate on language skills vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading, speaking, listening, writing and Adaptive Recall which are review sequences. While the general content and methodology is similar between the various Rosetta Stone versions, the Homeschool version is unique in giving parents the ability to plan and track the student's progress through the lessons and activities and to print data reports.

    Rosetta Stone Levels (in any language) cover the following material:

    Level 1 Build a Foundation. Fundamental vocabulary, essential language structure, basic conversational skills including greetings and introductions. Includes colors, adjectives, numbers, prepositions, definite and indefinite articles, singular and plural nouns, family relations, the five senses and time of day.

    Level 2 Navigate Your Surroundings. Builds on vocabulary and essential language structure. Giving/getting directions, using transportation, telling time, dining out, and enjoying basic social interactions. Includes verb tenses, adverbs, formal imperatives, school subjects, months, and emotions.

    Level 3 Connect with the World. Builds on language fundamentals and conversational skills. Learn to share ideas and opinions, express your feelings and talk about everyday life, your interests, your work, subjective, present perfect, weights, and measurements.

    Level 4 Deepen Your Understanding. Expands on what you learned in Levels 1, 2, and 3. Negotiate complex situations with confidence. Develop conversational skills to navigate the workplace, care for your health, arrange repairs, and move abroad.

    Level 5 Develop Your Command of the Language. Refine crucial communication skills and make full use of everything you've learned in Levels 1-4. Discuss entertainment and culture, government and the marketplace, and celebrate language-learning success.

    The following languages are available (with number of levels in parenthesis): Arabic (3), Chinese (Mandarin) (3), Dutch (3), English (American) (5), English (British) (5), Filipino (Tagalog) (3), French (5), German (5), Greek (3), Hebrew (3), Hindi (3), Irish (3), Italian (5), Japanese (3), Korean (3), Persian (Farsi) (3), Polish (3), Portuguese (Brazil) (3), Russian (3), Spanish (Latin American) (5 Workbooks for Levels 1-3), Spanish (Spain) (5), Swedish (3), Turkish (3), and Vietnamese (3).

    In terms of high school credit equivalency (as before) Rosetta Stone is not "accredited" because it is not a school, but each level of the Homeschool program has a "Full Year Curriculum" lesson plan. If you follow that lesson plan, each level will be a 36 week program if you're not using the supplemental (suggestions in teacher materials) materials, or 45 weeks if you are (equivalent to 1 school year). Not all schools or boards will accept RS as credit, so checking to ensure it will be accepted is recommended.

    While it's a bit sad to say "good-bye" to Rosetta Stone's old standby CD-based program, it's easy to see the advantages and necessity of increased mobility. Thankfully, favorite features have been retained and the program remains a strong option for high school foreign language. As before, we encourage the use of a grammar workbook to complement the strong conversational aspect of the program. ~ Janice

    Some children may have a difficult time applying themselves to books that cover technical programming concepts (such as looping, variables, etc.) or even books that lead directly into those ideas. The focus of this book is instead on short, unstructured lessons exclusively covering Scratch or Scratch games. Instead of having concept-based lessons to follow, as in How to Code in 10 Easy Lessons, kids will work on creating short, simple games using Scratch. These short lessons start out simple (such as making characters move around the screen) and end with making pattern games and virtual pets. Once kids understand how to make basic games, they move on to four fully-fledged game projects. Throughout these lessons the emphasis is placed on the game they are creating, not on programming concepts. Picture this as coming at programming from another angle; instead of learning about what a variable is and then putting a variable named score in the game, they are shown how to keep a score within their game and then learn why a score is a variable and what that entails. To help kids out even more, all instructions and concepts come with full-color illustrations (and cute cartoon characters) which show exactly how to do the projects in a fun, cute way. If your child is interested in programming, but may be more excited about making games as a focus, this is for them. 94 pages. Spiral-bound.

    Uses the programming language Scratch as a base. Focuses on the visual elements of programming - kids begin by making things move around the screen, drawing & painting characters, and creating a virtual pet. Ends with 4 games projects.

    Does your child struggle with retaining math facts or forget how to perform basic math computations? Do they need to use math manipulatives for basic math facts, even into their middle school years? With the majority of math curricula written for the left-brain learners who easily understand the drill-based math facts taught through black and white images, what is a parent to do with a child who learns differently and is not able to grasp math as traditionally taught? This DVD may provide the key to defeating frustration and overcoming forgetfulness! Beginning with a brief overview of right and left-brain learning as it applies to mathematics, Dianne Craft shares effective strategies to help struggling learners retain math facts and processes. While recommendations for math curricula workbooks are offered, these techniques would work with most math programs that you are currently using-with just a bit of tweaking! Strategies to teach addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, Algebra (order of operations), fractions and multiplication by 3 digits are included. This totally different teaching method will retrain the “non-math” brain into a math sponge, giving your child confidence and skills for math success! While not part of the Right Brained Math Series from Child First Publications, this DVD could be a vital forerunner to that series, providing parents and teachers a foundational understanding of right brain leaners and their distinctive needs. Part of the “Struggling Learner Seminar” series. DVD runs approximately 40 minutes. ~ Deanne

    This fascinating book explores many different facets of mathematics, and is an intriguing read for anyone - whether or not they enjoy the actual subject! It begins with a chapter which discusses the calendar - how it came about, problems and changes that were corrected and re-corrected, how the months were named and the days were divided amongst them, different people who influenced the calendar, and finally the system that we have today. Did you know that our calendar will have to be adjusted again, assuming we reach the year 5329? By then, our current calendar will be off an entire day. The text is so interesting it's hard not to just keep reading. Throughout the text, questions, puzzles, and problems are offered as a challenge for students. Some of the topics covered include measuring, practical mathematics, number names and patterns, endless numbers, math for scientists, and computing machines. Lots of history is given with each topic, so students learn not only about the concepts but how they were formed and developed over time to give us the functions we commonly use today. An excellent supplement to any math curriculum, reading a chapter from this book would provide an excellent break from the daily math lessons. 157 pgs. - Melissa

    Keyboarding is now a critical skill that should be taught correctly from the start. When children are not given directed instructions on keyboarding, they will begin to develop their own techniques which generally limit accuracy and speed. Dr. Fry's Computer Keyboarding for Beginners is designed to teach your child to keyboard using the correct method. By the end of the 20 lessons, your child will know the location of the letters and symbols on the keyboard (and which fingers are used to strike which keys) and be able to accurately use the 10 finger touch type method.

      Kathleen Wile narrates the complete text on the Discovering Design with Chemistry Audio Book USB flash drive (8G). This is just chapter content (including examples), and not the comprehension questions or experiments. Your auditory learners will love this and the articulate and clear recording. Play it anywhere you have a USB port – on your computer, in your car or other listening devices which have a USB format. You can download the audio files to your computer and MP3 player or iPod from your computer. I tried this in my car, and it was so easy to just plug and play. This makes listening on the go much more convenient. This flash drive format also eliminates the problem for those who have no disc drive on their computer or MP3-compatible CD player. This is a great companion to the text!

    If you're tired of using sticky tack, tapes, or other methods to hang your papers, give these nifty products a try. Basically, they're small clips (measuring about .75") that are attached to a sticky, wax-like adhesive. The adhesive never dries out, sticks to almost any surface, and can be removed and reused again and again without damaging surfaces. Just press the adhesive to any surface and you're good to go. Twist to remove and reposition. Stick the clips on walls, doors, computers, refrigerators, and more to hang things like notes, lists, photos, papers, messages, art, posters, charts, decorations, cards, presentations, and so much more. These self-stick paper holders are a great way to get organized.

    This is not your average board game. Yes, there are cute playing pieces, obstacles and rules, but everyone plays the game until the end AND learns programming fundamentals along the way! The game is played by 1-4 "Turtle Masters" who are trying to get their turtle to the matching jewel on the grid-like game board. In the most basic game play, the players lay out action cards for their turtle, and the parent (or older sibling) acts as "Turtle Mover" and acts out the turtle's movement on the game board. As players get comfortable with the game, you can add "unlockables" to the game board – obstacles like ice walls, stone walls and crates. Turtles must work around each of these obstacles in a different way. As players advance, there are options for upping the ante, like having players lay out all of their action cards in a complete "program," then moving the turtle across the board all at once and seeing if he ends at the jewel. Created by a computer programmer and dad, this is a unique way to show kids how programming works in a fun and visual way! For 2-5 players. – Jess

    Children today tend to be more technologically savvy than their parents and even older siblings. Yet the importance of learning the foundational skills remains. This engaging typing program has been uniquely created for young typists. Through the charm of various Disney characters, children are taught to use their "magical typing skills" to reach the palace. Whether freeing the Princess from the hedge that has engulfed her to the typing games found at the Palace Faire, children will be motivated to learn the typing skills necessary as the delightful, enchanting stories unfold. Children will practice their typing skills through various Disney stories including Pinocchio, Tangled, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Snow White and the Severn Dwarfs, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.

    The CD-ROM provides ten typing courses to reach all skill levels, visual hand guides, progress reports and hundreds of lessons and challenges. Your children may beg you to play Mickey's typing adventure (shhh, the educational value secret is safe with me!). Powered by the time proven Typing Instructor.

    As in the other Novare science texts, there is a section written to the student in preparation for doing the course. Each chapter, then, includes objectives, information broken down into smaller digestible pieces, examples and illustrations, and wraps up with a chapter exercise. Green "Do You Know" boxes tell some interesting historical fact concerning the topic. Answers to computational questions are included with each exercise. The back of the text includes a glossary, reference data, chapter equations and objectives list, experiments with guidelines for keeping a journal, scientists to know, and accurate measurements. Chapters include nature of scientific knowledge, motion, Newton's Laws of Motion, energy, momentum, atoms/matter/substances, heat and temperature, pressure and buoyancy, waves/sound/light, introduction to electricity, DC circuits, fields and magnetism, and geometric optics.

    Five (out of six) of the experiments from the Experiments for Introductory Physics are found at the back of the student text. You can do just those five and still have very in-depth labs with lab reports. The experiment information found in the back of the student text is in addition to what is found in the Experiments for Introductory Physics book, so you will need both books.
