    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

    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.

    The Past and To Watch display is the same as the EasyRead Past and To Clock. Numbers 1-12 (hours) are larger, a variety of rainbow colors, and set closer to the inside of the watch, just out of the small hand's reach. Around the very outside of the clock face are two sets of smaller numbers 1-30 starting with the 1's at either side of the very top middle and continuing down around both directions with the 30's being right next to the bottom middle. These sets are color-coded to the corresponding "to" (purple) on the left and "past" (green) on the right of the middle of the clock face. Thus when the minute hand travels along those digits on the right, they are read "__ past" the hour, and when the minute hand points to the small digits on the left, they are read as "__ to" the next hour. The five-minute increments are slightly larger, and the fractions ¼ and ½ at the appropriate positions reinforce "half past the hour" or "quarter till."

    Teaching our children how to handle money is often “caught and not taught,” yet, how many of us learned our own personal money skills in the school of “hard knocks?”

    As parents, we want to set a good example of money management, but what if our ideas of money management are just not clicking with our child (or spouse!). Have you ever considered that you may have different money personalities? In the grand scheme of things, money is simply a tool, a means to an end, and that end is quality relationships with our spouse, children and the world around us. Delving into the heart of money relationships—the deep seated assumptions and beliefs that each of us bring to the money decisions we make—the authors expand on the five types of money personalities: saver, spender, risk taker, security seeker, and flyer, to help us identify our unique money personalities. Then the book moves on to assess the money personalities of our children through a designated assessment link and code. With this foundational understanding, the authors provide practical advice and encouragement for teaching our children basic money skills. The following sections are divided into 3 age groupings: 5-12 years, 13-17 years and 18 and beyond, with insights and ideas specific to the five money personalities. Also included are parental “button pushers” to be aware of in order to prevent us from over reacting and derailing these important conversations. A great tool to understand how different children approach and deal with money that would be a great go-along for parents whose children are working through the Dave Ramsey Foundations in Personal Finance course or the Money Matters for Kids/Teens series. 257 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
