    Are you like me? Color and beauty make me happy. A well-organized, common-sensible planner makes me want to plan. When both are wrapped up into one user-friendly, cheerful, full-of-extras package, I'm ready to grab my pen!

    First, let's talk about the basics. Each week has a two-page spread in the spiral-bound (lies flat) 8.5 x 11" planner. Days (Mon-Fri) are across the top (three on left-hand page; two on right-hand page). Each of these columns has five subject sections (Bible, Math, History, Science, English). Each of these sections has four lines. In other words, for each day, and each subject, you can briefly record a 2 " line for each of three or four children or use two lines for two children or four lines for one child. There are additional boxes (total of seven lines) at the bottom of each column any other subjects. Each of these lines in each column ends with a small colored box for check-offs. The remaining vertical column on the right-hand page has lined space to record weekly priorities, daily dinner menus, and weekend activities.  Each week includes a Bible verse on one page and a notable quote (think inspirational Facebook status posts) on the other. 

    Now for the extras - sample planner page, place to insert a family picture and record family memories, a weekly cleaning schedule, special projects page (monthly boxes with reminders of those easy-to-forget occasional cleaning tasks), important contacts, children chore cards (perforated and ready to tear out), teacher schedule, class plan (curriculum) and student schedules for four children,  semester goals, monthly calendar with accompanying page to record books to read, field trips, and monthly expenses, perforated shopping lists (set of six for each month), semester accomplishments, attendance records, and grade recording sheets. There is also two year at a glance calendars-current year and the upcoming year.

    A set of four perforated, cardstock report cards are in the back (Each month is inaugurated with an encouraging article and has its own color scheme vibrant, subtle, cool, warm each satisfying. The graphic theme (which changes each year) is lively, and frankly, delightful. An extravagant claim perhaps, but I'll stick by it - using this planner will remind you daily that homeschooling is a wonderful calling, full of beauty and grace. Janice

    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

    When you're homeschooling it makes sense to study nutrition as a family, right? After all, you probably are all preparing and eating the same meals, and meal planning and shopping may even be cooperative efforts (if not, Mom is probably overworked!). Nutrition 101: Choose Life! was written for homeschooling families by a team of four moms (including two homeschool moms) to educate families about the relationship between our bodies and the food we eat. It's a unique book in that it is part textbook, part reference, and part cookbook. It's also a beautiful book, with glossy, full-color pages and good quality illustrations and photos. Finally, it's also biblically-based with plentiful Scripture references (KJV version) and a constant reminder that we are charged with maintaining the incredible body systems that God endowed us with. The course is divided into six main units, covering the major body systems: the brain and nervous system; digestive system; respiratory system and the senses; muscular and skeletal systems; cardiovascular and immune system; and the endocrine system and emotions. Units are further

    divided into four chapters, each designed to be completed in about a week. The authors provide a suggested daily schedule; however, you can easily adapt this to fit your needs. Each body system studied ties into a study of a particular nutrient or nutrients that you are encouraged to work into your diet, and to this end, quite a few healthy, whole-food recipes are included. The end of the book is also literally packed with a huge assortment of appendices (including lots of helpful charts!) and a thorough answer key for the activities. Each chapter includes text for reading, discussion questions, activity suggestions for elementary and secondary students, additional resources for further exploration, a "power recipe" and related activities. Typically, you'll first read about a body system, learn its function and all of the major parts, then continue on to learn about common health issues related to that body system and their causes. This is usually followed up by a closer look at a particular nutrient or group of nutrients that is beneficial to that particular body system.

    The "Power Recipe" (and associated list of activities) for each chapter is usually related to one of the featured beneficial nutrients. For instance, Unit 3, Chapter 4 is on the eyes. The first part of the chapter examines the parts of the eye and how the eye works. Then you'll read about eye sight issues including pink eye, sties, cataracts, glaucoma, presbyopia and age-related macular degeneration. Next you examine nutrients that help maintain eye health including antioxidants, beta-carotene (to be converted to Vitamin A), lycopene, anthocyanosides, DHA, lutein, zeaxanthin and others. Several foods that have an adverse effect on eyesight, including trans fatty acids and processed foods are also discussed here. Discussion questions include how to protect your eyes, what foods are bad for your eyes, and applying what you've read about the eye to a particular Scripture. The activities are hands on and include spending time blindfolded (elementary level), finding a percentage of family members that wear glasses or contact lenses (elementary), explaining the difference between an ophthalmologist and optometrist (secondary) and discussion other meanings of vision (secondary). The "Power Recipe" focuses on carrots as an ingredient for a fresh carrot juice smoothie, and several carrot and juicing activity suggestions round out the recipe activities.

    The format of this course makes it extremely easy to use as a family. You can assign everyone to read (or read aloud) the text, and then get back together for the discussion questions. Discussion questions tend to be fairly easy if you've read or heard the chapter, so everyone would be able to participate here, maybe even over dinner! Depending on the ages of your students and the time allotted, you will probably want to pick and choose activities to assign. The featured "Power Recipe" would be easy to incorporate into a meal and the related activities may naturally fit into meal preparation.

    While this course is packed with excellent information, recipes and activities, there are a few items I should note. First of all, for all of the anatomical information and vocabulary covered, there are no tests or worksheets to reinforce the reading. The focus of the course is really to educate families and encourage them to change their eating habits, not provide easily graded assessments! However, this would be fairly easy to supplement if desired. The recipes and foods you are encouraged to try are healthy whole foods with low to no sugar, whole grains and possibly some ingredients you haven't met before. If you've never explored your local health food store, you'll find quite a few reasons to visit it now! You'll also find that there are some pretty strong opinions presented here, for example, when discussing toxins found in household cleaners and personal care products, or when examining specific nutrients or supplements-including extensive recommendations for Young Living Essential Oils. You will likely come across something here that you may disagree with, based on your own beliefs, or at least something that will make you stop and think (or perhaps do some further research on). Lastly, I did notice a couple of typos in perusing this resource, which was disappointing in such an otherwise appealing book. Whether you are looking for a nutrition course or trying to educate yourself or your family on why you should eat healthier foods, this is definitely a resource to consider. It's one that you'll want to leave on the shelf long after you've "finished" the course, as you'll be referring to it again and again! 448 pgs, pb. Jess/Deanne

    Chores are re-defined as commitments on this weekly chart. There are 4 categories listed down the left-most column: honor myself, respect my home, honor my family, and respect my school; days of the week are across the top. Three to five subcategories include things like: dress myself on time, put my things away, help clean and participate in class. Some categories have extra spaces for you to write in your own commitments. At the bottom is a place to write a memory verse and you can write your student's name at the top. Pad contains a 6-month supply. The pages are colorful (greens, blues, purples) and show a cross and a dove. ~ Sara

    This book should be on every homeschooler's desk (and I don't mean the bookshelf!). Rarely will you hear me be quite so emphatic, but this book is a treasure! Designed to be a companion to Teaching the Classics, a Socratic approach to teaching literature, and undoubtedly an amazing resource for those using that approach, it is also an incredible reference for anyone who wants flexibility in terms of teaching literature coupled with "just enough" structure.

    The authors identified 200 books for grades K-12 and then (in a wonderful spreadsheet format) annotated them with tons of information plot, conflict, theme, aids & devices, and alternate titles (other books that could be used). In short, it lists everything you need at your fingertips to supervise a comprehensive literary analysis of the book. As if that weren't enough, they further reworked that annotated information into six different curriculum models daily, weekly, monthly, six-week, quarterly, and seasonal. These different models mean that you can teach literature in whatever way you want. Want to focus on literature everyday? Want to conduct a short-term co-op course? Want to hit literature "hard" for a little while and then be done? This resource will help you plan and implement any of these scenarios.

    The usefulness doesn't end there, however. There are separate chapters on writing from literature, learning objectives by grade level, grading and assigning credits, and major historical periods in western literature. The writing from literature section gives a brief overview of writing assignments (what sort and how long) for the elementary, junior high, and senior high levels. On the other hand, the analytical essay is dissected very thoroughly and a helpful "tootsie-roll" diagram helps the student to see how the parts of the essay work together. Just as helpful is the model essay that illustrates the effective use of this diagram. The graded learning objectives for literature are quite specific and can be used as a scope and sequence or for developing lesson plans. I used high school literature texts as references when I wanted information about the history of literature, but to have that same information at my fingertips would have been a beautiful thing. 234 pgs. pb ~ Janice

    High school record keeping is more important than tracking the progress of your elementary student, so the good folks that brought you the popular Homeschooler’s Journal now have a high school version. As with the Journal, the bulk of the High School Journal is devoted to the weekly lesson layout. Seven columns (vs. six for the Journal) for subjects times five rows for days gives you 40 squares to work with on each pair of pages. These squares contain seven lines for writing details (as opposed to the open format of the squares in the Journal). In the lower right is a handy chart for keeping track of hours spent per subject each week, recordable in quarter-hour increments. Since the method of study (unit studies, structured text, multiple students per subject, etc.) varies from family to family, several examples show various methods of using the weekly lesson layout to your best advantage. The only other change for the High School Journal is a “Grade Record” which replaces the “Test Score Keeper” in the Journal. Daily grades can be recorded in up to 10 subjects for up to 192 days. Other miscellaneous forms in the Journal remain unchanged.
