    For those spare minutes in your school day, try incorporating these short logic activities. While some may require just a minute or two of thinking, others may keep your students busy for closer to five or ten minutes. Either way, their minds will be stretched instead of sitting idle. Each logic problem is written on its own page of the half-size book, so you can easily make copies of the warm-ups for multiple students or simply write the problems on a whiteboard where everyone can see it. Answers are included in the back of the book. 207 pgs. – Melissa

    Unlike math or reading, geography may be one of those subjects studied intermittently, or even as one concentrated course, not something we hit every day, and this can make memorizing places and names difficult for those students not so good at memorization. Similar to the other Daily Warm-Ups books, each page is a mini-lesson that can be completed at any odd time of the day, and gives the student just a little taste of the subject on a daily basis. Activities include matching, true/false, charts and graphs, reading comprehension, riddles, and more. Not a comprehensive study of world geography by any means, but an easy way to keep the kids sharp, and keep them thinking about geography all year long. - Jess

    What does it mean to badger someone? To bail out? To be born with a silver spoon in one's mouth? To get a dose of one's own medicine? We have all of these sayings in the English language, and we use them everyday, but have you ever thought about what they really mean? Don't most of them sound kind of silly? This book is great for class discussion and is divided into 9 different categories of idioms: animal, business, body, clothes, color, food, medical, money, and number. Daily Warm-Ups can be used at the very beginning of class to get students into learning mode, near the end of class to make good educational use of the transitional time, in the middle of class to shift gears between lessons, or whenever else you have unused minutes.

    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

    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
