    Get Ready, Get Set, and Go (for the Code) have provided homeschooled students a low-stress, engaging introduction to phonics for years. Now the publisher has added this Teacher’s Guide which expands on the skills presented and provides teachers with various options for instruction and reinforcement. There are a wide variety of activities offered with easy adaptability for the one-on-one learning situation of homeschools. The format is simple and consistent: quick review, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, completing student pages, fluency, comprehension, writing, and reinforcement activities. Please note that some of the instruction formerly found in the student books, which made them stand-alone, is now included in the teacher’s guide, so you will probably now need the teacher’s guide. ~ Janice

    Explode the Code in 3D! This royal blue felt wall chart contains 26 pockets. Each pocket contains a colorful, removable stuffed toy that children can play with. The toy is the key word used in the Explode the Code books to learn their respective letters (an apple in the "a" pocket, a bell in the "b" pocket, etc.). Letters are shown in lowercase on the chart. In case the toys don't get back in their pockets, replacement parts are available from the publisher. 16" w x 32" h.

    The accompanying booklet is an aid for parents to help get the most out of the Explode the Code wall chart. It explains how to introduce the letters and gives a variety of games to play that will teach and reinforce the names and sounds of letters. The 34 games explained in the book are presented in order of difficulty, beginning with games involving one step and moving on to games with two or more steps. Each of the games can be played with any number of children and in flexible circumstances. Some of the games require extra materials such as note cards, markers, and scissors, but they are all fairly easy to set up and play. Variations of several of the games are given with questions to ask while children are playing the games.

      This colorful, straightforward instructional workbook from The Critical Thinking Company eliminates much of the “stuff” and the “fluff” found in many other phonics and early reading programs and focuses on individual letter sounds and how they are represented as letters. You won’t find pages of teacher tips and background here, just one introductory page and one teaching suggestion page, and then you’re off and running to the activities. Similar in format to Mathematical Reasoning, Fun-Time Phonics is softcover, with several exercises per activity page, brief instructions to the teacher, and full-color illustrated graphics.

      There are 100 activities, or short lessons, in the book. The first seven lay the foundation by asking the student to identify beginning sounds, ending sounds, and rhyming words. Activities 6 and 7 challenge them to identify the three letter sounds in a word and to match that with the correct picture. Starting in Activity 8, students learn the short vowel sounds and identify pictures of words that contain that sound. Before moving on to the consonant sounds, students complete activities such as identifying a word out of a set of three that includes a different vowel sound than the other two, or swapping out one vowel sound for another in a word to create a new word. After students learn the five short vowel sounds, they learn the written vowel letters. One feature in the vowel portion of the book that threw me for a loop, however, was the depiction of a short ‘/ǎ/’ sound as ‘/ah/’ next to words like, “cat.” Most phonics programs are quite clear to teachers to take care when pronouncing the vowel and consonant sounds to not include other sounds (say ‘/b/,’ not ‘/buh/’). At first glance, you will want to read the ‘/ah/’ as the /a/ in “father.” Personally, I would probably just ignore these additional ‘h’s or cross them out and add a short vowel symbol as a reminder. Fortunately, as these only occur on the teacher instructions, it shouldn’t confuse your students as long as your pronunciation is clear. Lesson 20 moves on to consonant sounds, starting with ‘b’ and moving alphabetically through ‘z.’ As children learn each consonant, the consonant sound is blended with each of the short vowels, so they are learning to distinguish ‘da,’ ‘de,’ ‘di,’ ‘do,’ and ‘du’ with the letter D right off the bat. This may be a real benefit to students who are confused about how to blend the individual letter sounds together after learning them in isolation. The last five lessons ask the student to connect a picture with the beginning letters, ending letters and middle vowel wounds, stressing the letter representation of the sound. The last two activities ask children to read three-letter CVC words and identify a matching picture. At the end of the book you’ll find a double-sided sheet with short-vowel words that children should be able to decode at this point, such as ‘doll, ‘hen’ and ‘yum.’

      This approach would work well with logical children who do not need additional reinforcement activities or motivators in the form of games or songs. It may also work well for remedial students, or those who did not learn phonics initially. It’s simple to teach, but with an emphasis on identifying letter sounds, you will want to work apart from other distractions and enunciate the words very clearly as you work through the pages with your student.  Although students are led to associate the written letters with the sounds, there are no writing activities featured in the book. However, it is suggested in the beginning that if the student is older or able to write, you may consider having them write the answers under the exercises. For additional enforcement (and writing activities) you might consider a workbook like Explode the Code Book 1. You may also want to note that no sight words are covered in this volume. If you want to jump ahead to some very basic short-vowel readers, you will need to introduce any sight words in that reader. I’m assuming that a second book will be released as a follow-up which will introduce long vowel sounds. The book is reproducible for your student/classroom use, which makes an affordable resource even more budget-friendly if you use it with multiple children. 314 pages, pb. - Jess

    "It's just common sense!" Actually, it's the Blue Book Common Sense Reading Program and yes, everything about this program is common sense. A very complete program organized around quality children's literature (like all LLATL programs) and covering phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" (small story book) book which uses those sounds. The literature component - carefully selected children's favorites - reminds students that the reason for all the hard work in phonics is the joy of reading wonderful books. And woven through both of these elements is comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts. Relying heavily on Ruth Beechick's principles for teaching reading (including her letter dice activities), the program includes a wide variety of activities appealing to all learning styles. The teacher's manual is a homeschooler's dream with all the work having been done for you, taking you step-by-step through the 36-week program. New skills are listed for each lesson with a materials list included at the beginning. Almost no teacher preparation is needed - you teach as you read. All answers are provided within the lesson. Higher-order thinking activities are italicized. Examples and diagrams are user-friendly including the easy-to-follow references to the Student Activity Book. Each of the four parts (readiness, short vowels, consonant blends and short vowels, and long vowels) concludes with an evaluation for determining your child's readiness for the next level. The Student Activity Book contains the materials (except for household and school supplies) needed for cut and paste, word wheels, flip books, picture sequencing, story-telling puppets, PLUS handwriting pages that teach all upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation. The comfortable, natural handwriting method that isn't exactly traditional, modern, or italic was developed by the authors. This handwriting instruction is coordinated with the phonics and includes pages for children to carefully complete and display or give as gifts.

    The Student Activity Book is consumable, even having an easy-release binding that allows for clean page removal. Even the back cover is put to good use providing the miniature book covers to be added to the personal reading chart that marks the child's progress. 28 separate readers cover short vowels, blends (bridge readers), and long vowels. They are small-sized for little hands and include black-and-white illustrations. Stories are engaging which is a good thing since a week's worth of learning activities are built around them. The student uses puppets to retell the stories, completes sequencing activities with a series of reader-related events, and answers comprehension questions. One interesting aspect of the teacher-student interaction concerning these readers is that the week's lesson starts off with the teacher reading the small book to the child. After several lessons thoroughly covering the new phonics steps and practice reading parts of the story, the student concludes the week with the successful reading of the small book. This is an effective variation of the typical approach because the goal of reading the book is always before the student. The materials packet is a useful collection of color-coded letter and word cards to use for learning and review along with cards used for reinforcement games and, of course, the letter dice (to be assembled from cardstock patterns). While this part of the program is not exactly consumable - you could use the various components again - the components do get a workout. If you are expecting to use the program with another child, you'll want to save these items and covering them with clear contact paper to preserve them would also be a good idea. The program includes the Teacher's Manual, the Student Activity Book, the 28 Readers, and the Materials Packet.

    We sell additional Student Activity Books, Reader Sets, and Material Packets so you can use the program with a second student. Well-known children's literature (Read-Aloud Library) is suggested each week, so at the same time your child is learning phonics, he is also learning other important reading skills such as literal recall, comprehension, predicting outcome, and drawing conclusions. These books are an integral part of the program and the Student Activity Book relies on them. Although usually available at the local library, for your convenience we also sell them. They are listed in order of use. Although this program focuses on first grade skills, it would be possible to use this program with a "ready" kindergartner. It would also work well with a slightly older child who is still a just-getting-started reader. ~ Janice

    You stumble upon on ancient castle, blocking your progress. But what a coincidence! 3 other knights had the same idea, and they need to get through too… In Keys to the Castle, players compete to be the first knight to escape the castle by traversing its many locked rooms. Each player begins his or her turn by drawing cards. These cards are generally color-coded keys, but can also be a variety of helpful items. Players then play one of their cards, opening an adjacent door of their choice and moving – or locking a door behind them to slow down other players! Other helpful devices allow players to hacksaw through barred doors, set up padlocks to further sabotage their opponents, and even find secret passages to speed their progress. The first player to the opposite side of the castle wins! For 2-4 players. 10-20-minute playtime.

    Explore your career interests with this helpful, inexpensive tool. This foldout booklet consists of several components to help you discover your true calling. The first part is a career inventory, consisting of 128 statements describing different activities (such as “Grow flowers or trees,” “Watch programs about law enforcement,” or “Conduct scientific experiments”). If a student has an interest in any of the activities, s/he circles “P” if s/he enjoyed doing the activity in the past, “C” if s/he currently enjoys doing the activity, or “F” if s/he would expect to enjoy doing this activity in the future. Each of the questions is coded to one of sixteen interest area groups, and scores are tallied to determine the career family (or families) with the highest scores (and interest). Once the student’s areas of interest are identified, the rest of the resources and activities in the booklet provide a good springboard for further exploration. There is a detailed grid listing related occupations, typical leisure activities, and related education and training for each of the sixteen interest areas; worksheets for recording interests, activities, and setting career goals; and lists of books and websites for further research.

    More About Mathseeds

    Mathseeds is an interactive online math program for the younger learners in your family. There are 200 lessons geared toward ages 3-9, and new content is added often. Every lesson introduces and models a concept and is then followed by activities, an e-book reinforcing the concept, and then a reward of a hatching e-pet. Children work through virtual maps of different ecosystems, and the e-pets are animals that might be found in that area. A multiple-choice quiz is given after every 5th lesson, which comes with its own rewards. There are 50 lessons per grade level K-3, but these could be used whenever your student is ready. The first 20 lessons at the K level are for students with no math skills, so they could be used younger. Lessons 21 – 50 begin to develop foundational math skills. The rest of the lessons build upon previously learned skills in the program, so you’ll want to do them in order. Printable activities provide written practice for the lessons taught online.

      The online subscription is a 12-month access code for use with one student. With access, you will receive lessons, printables (same as the workbook pages), tracking of student progress, and a downloadable app for your tablet. Children will love the interactivity of the online lessons and the surprises that hatch along the learning path. Print workbooks for Mathseeds are available on our site as a separate purchase if it's easier than printing the activities online.

    College-bound high school students are expected to write essays. Of the many, there are two (maybe three) essays that are "once-in-a-lifetime" experiences the ACT and/or SAT essay and the college entrance essay. These are very specific types of writing tasks and are quite different from a typical subject area essay and different from one another. One is a timed response to a prompt. It must be completed quickly and coherently. On the other hand, you can take as much time as you want writing the other. It must be as close to perfect as possible. You can prepare for both of these writing experiences. This video seminar from the Institute for Excellence in Writing and presented by Andrew Pudewa is a five DVD set two that cover/review general strategies for essay writing, one each for understanding and preparing for the New ACT Essay and the Redesigned SAT Essay, and, lastly, one covering strategies for the "personal essay."
    General strategies (Parts 1a and 1b) cover types of essays, possible ways to organize body paragraphs as well as possible essay structures, practice in the five canons of classical rhetoric, and stylistic elements. The TRIAC (topic, restriction, illustrations, analysis, clincher) outline is reviewed and practiced.
    The new ACT essay and the redesigned SAT essay have significant differences. The ACT essay is a prompt essay while the redesigned SAT essay is optional and is based on a source text. Parts 2 and 3 of this video seminar series provide techniques for producing quality essays in each of these situations in addition to thoroughly understanding what to expect and what is expected.
    Part 4 examines the personal essay, providing sample essay prompts/questions and typical questions including those that might be specific to Christian colleges as well as some wildcard questions.
    As expected, the most important preparation activity for these types of essays is to write a lot. Students are encouraged to complete one or more essays as a final practice assignment. Utilizing the strategies presented in this seminar and building in opportunities for many practice essays, you will make the best use of your preparation time.
    The HSEI Course includes a set of five DVDs and a course handout as well as an access code for the online streaming version of the seminar. The Handout (available as a separate purchase item as well) is the Portable Walls for the Essayist (a handy set-up-on-your-desk reference for everything pertaining to writing quality essays) plus extensive note-taking material from the seminar.

    Another great songbook for Boomwhackers, this contains children's songs with color-coded music notes to match the Boomwhackers Tubes and lyrics directly beneath the colorful staff. It has twenty favorite songs like Old MacDonald, The Muffin Man, and On Top of Old Smokey. The colored notes allow anyone to easily play the songs and learn about reading music at the same time. Some of the songs in this book are the same as those in the Building Blocks Series, but the difference is that these songs use actual notes on a bar that are different colors and the other series uses colored squares without a bar. This book also does not have detachable charts for playing; in fact, the book measures only 5.5" x 8.5" and includes all the notes for a song on one page. It's a handy little book full of fun, easy-to-play songs that any Boomwhacker player would enjoy. It is designed to be used with the C Major Diatonic Scale Set.
