    This time, Janice VanCleave takes us through the history of science, with an focus on each scientific discipline and how it has changed over time. The book consists of six chapters, which examine the histories of: science, astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science and physics. Each chapter and experiment opens with a "Did You Know" section to acquaint students with that time period, or an explanation of how a similar experiment was important to scientific discovery. Once the students understand the context, it's time to experiment! An objective or purpose, materials list, step-by-step directions, results, additional information and bibliography are included for each activity. For example, in the experiment on planetary motion, students will read about how early astronomers plotted orbits, then make a model of Neptune and Pluto's orbits, and discover for themselves why they don't "crash into each other". Neccessary materials are all around-the-house items, and as the experiments are geared for the elementary ages, most of them are not terribly involved or difficult to do. Even scientists too young to "stand on the shoulders of giants" can follow in their footsteps with these activities! - Jess

       Have you ever wanted to sit and soak in the wisdom of an expert in treating learning difficulties? As a parent or educational specialist, you know the children in your care are bright and capable, yet learning is hard for them. If you ever wondered if you can do more to help your struggling learner, this DVD series may have the answers you are seek.

      Designed for Special Ed teachers, literacy teachers, home-educators, tutors and others with a special interest to help children, Dianne Craft’s 10+ hour seminar series explains the brain research behind many learning glitches (disabilities), gives you the tools to identify processing glitches, and plan a program to correct blocked learning gates. She also provides effective strategies and lesson plans through the 9 sessions in this video seminar. Sessions include:

      Session 1: Identifying Your Child’s Processing Problems provides the foundational understanding of the four learning gates and signs of blocked learning gates. Right and Left Brain learning traits are also clarified. A 3-prong approach is provided to correct blocked learning gates.

      Session 2: Dysgraphia: When Writing is Painful discusses the signs of writing stress and compares it to a child who may appear lazy or uncooperative. Visual-Spatial problems are also explained before she expands on activities to correct dysgraphia. Mrs. Craft stresses that progress may be seen in as little as 3 months; however, a minimum of 6 months is necessary for full benefit. Includes step by step, Daily Writing “Eight” Exercise instructions and the daily lesson plan for struggling writer and speller.

      Session 3: Right Brain Paragraph and Composition Writing addresses the “loose thought patterns” experienced by children and teens who suffer with dysgraphia, ADD or Auditory Processing problems. A simple formula of baby steps, right brain webbing and modeling are easy to implement at home and have proven successful with reluctant, struggling writers. Includes directions for beginning, intermediate and advanced skill levels, along with writing tools for parent/teacher guidance.

      Session 4: Right Brain Math is dedicated to all the children who forget math from day to day. Teaching a “Plan B” for struggling math students, Mrs. Craft provides helpful, detailed information on right brain strategies for effective learning of math concepts. These strategies will work with any math curriculum. Includes math tutoring instructions.

      Session 5: Training Your Child’s Photographic Memory (for Spelling) provides a right brain teaching strategies that work for struggling spellers-regardless of brain dominance. Considered a “Plan B” for spellers, this DVD teaches a photographic memory method which may be valuable throughout life. Includes information to access a 1200 Most Commonly Used Words list.

      Session 6: Dyslexia and Other Reading Problems explores why reading is hard for some kids. With a focus on children at least 2 years behind in reading, Mrs. Craft explains the levels of processing problems, and differentiates dyslexia from visual and auditory processing disorders, and general reading dysfunctions. She then elaborates on the keys to correcting reading problems: Correct and Bypass. Includes daily lesson plans and a quick word recognition spelling test. Also, recommended for correction of reading problems are the Brain Integration Therapy Manual and Right Brain Phonics materials and basal readers.

      Session 7: Kids and Teenagers with Focus/Attention Issues takes a fascinating look at how our diet and antibiotic use may appear as symptoms of sensory dysfunction and focus/attention issues. She also explores the big question- “Is it character or chemistry?” and provides simple checklists of behavioral and physical characteristics. Dietary changes and nutritional supplementation recommendations are recommended.

      Session 8: Auditory Process Problems reviews common myths before teaching the characteristics that impact reading, spelling and math. Covering common physical causes (allergies, nutritional deficiencies), Mrs. Craft shares ways to bypass and correct auditory channels issues at home.

      Session 9: Autism, Asperger’s and Sensory Processing Problems looks at the increasing prevalence of autism in the U.S., traditional treatment and causation theories. Mrs. Craft recommends a 3-pronged approach to unlock the abilities of Autistic children, with a focus on nutrition in this session. She provides the foundational knowledge you need to identify, treat and restore the underlying biochemical disorder that may cause or exacerbate autistic symptoms. 

      Overall, this series is tremendously beneficial for parents and educators alike. There are a couple of disappointments. First, the DVDs are recordings of workshop sessions presented to a large group. Therefore, some graphics are difficult to see or have been updated to fit the DVD presentation. On one occasion, Mrs. Craft and her assistant are showing how to do the Circle Eight Exercises correctly and are partially blocked by the podium. The accompanying Study Guide is jam-packed with helpful information; however, at times is difficult to follow along with the presentations. As my colleagues and I viewed the videos, we elected to take notes during the sessions and read the study guide after the session. While there is no Biblical teaching, Mrs. Craft makes comments about our children being “God-made”, the value of prayer in helping our struggling learners and “God as our Supreme Being.” DVDs range from 45-90 minutes. CEUs or course completion certifications are also available. ~ Deanne

    While science experiment books abound, it can be difficult to find good workbooks for science. So, while I usually get excited about science resources, I was particularly pleased to discover this one. Intended to give students more practice and exposure to what is a weak area for U.S. students, this book covers a nice breadth of physical science concepts with a strong mathematical component. The 12 chapters include: molecules, compounds, chemistry, states of matter, mass, weight, gravity, density, Newton's Laws of Motion, simple machines, vectors, electricity, light refraction and reflection, waves, and Kepler's Laws. Chapters vary in length from 3 to nearly 20 pages, with each chapter featuring single pages that include a paragraph or two on the topic and an exercise below. While some of the activities are short answer or fill-in-the-blank, quite a few of them are math-related. In the chapter on simple machines, the first page discusses work, while the following activity gives the reader several situations and asks if work has taken place. The next part moves on to measuring work, using the work equals force times distance equation. Students spend the next two pages calculating work done using both the English and metric system. And if the worksheets in the book aren't enough for you, keep reading. A CD-ROM is included with the book that contains interactive PDF worksheets, additional printable (non-interactive) exercises and reading exercises (which focus on scientific vocabulary) for each chapter. If your current physical science program is weak in the math area, or if you're looking for additional practice, this workbook from Mark Twain Media is a solid choice and is very reasonably priced for the amount of content. Answer keys included, reproducible, 126 pgs, pb. – Jess
