    1,2,3,4,5,6 six colorful math games in one sturdy box! Students practice numbers 1-20, 1-100, place value 0-999, and addition and subtraction skills as they play the variety of games. Numbees features a hive on the board where each hexagon on the board holds a number between 2 and 17. Players start in the middle of the board, spin the spinner to show + or 1 to 3, and then move to the appropriate spot to make their way out of the hive. 1-100 Tracks is reminiscent of a train-themed Chutes and Ladders board as players spin the spinner to move up to 9 spaces. Landing on an arrow takes you up or down by 10. The Great Snail Race has two players rolling a die to race to the finish; certain spaces allow children to add or subtract small numbers to jump. In Place Value Round Up, players roll the die and move that amount of spaces, and then round the number on their new space either up or down to the nearest ten. Each ten holds a special instruction to follow if you round to it, such as moving extra spaces forward or backwards. Number Dominoes have children match addition and subtraction facts to numerals and pictures. The last game is really more of a manipulative, holding different colored hundred, ten, and one cards on a ring, each with 1-9 in order to create numbers up to 999. The bottom card has a visible tab that has hundreds, tens, and units written on it, so students can see which number is in which place. Parents and teachers can use it to play "Guess My Number." Most pieces are made out of thick, coated cardboard to last though many uses.

    Volume Two picks up where Story of the World Volume One left off, and it tells the fascinating story of the “Dark Ages,” from the fall of Rome through the Renaissance. This volume has been written very similarly to the other also, with a very readable text, appropriate for young children, told in a clear and engaging style. Each of the many chapters is relatively short, and broken up into smaller chunks that are the perfect length for curling up together and reading aloud. Also like the preceding book, this story of history doesn’t limit itself to a dry, white-bread-without-the-crusts retelling of a primarily European history, instead it is a rich, whole wheat blend of European, Indian, Chinese, Australian, Arabic, Japanese, Jewish, Mongolian, Turkish, African, Russian, and American history during the period, providing the young student with a much more complete view of what was going on all around the world during that intriguing time period. To cover every event in each of these diverse histories would take a whole library, however, and just as Susan Wise Bauer tells us in her first volume, use this volume as a springboard to more detailed readings about any events that you and the children find interesting and want to learn more about. A timeline and an index are included at the back.

    Like its predecessor, the Activity Book corresponds chapter-by-chapter with the text from the Story of the World readings, and the sections and activities are well-organized and easy to implement. Each chapter begins with review questions for the book. Narration exercises are also included, so that the child may write or dictate to you a summary of what they learned. A list of books for additional reading follows, each with a concise summary and an approximate reading level to help you find those most appropriate for your child’s ability and interest. Corresponding literature, consisting of more "story-like" volumes such as cultural tales and myths are also featured to liven up your history reading, lending a little more interest to those lovers of fiction. An excellent range of activities follow the reading lists, including map work, a coloring page, and projects, which include art, crafts, games, and other more "involved" activities. An abundance of opportunities for "beyond-the-book" learning about here, but as the author mentioned in the activity book for Vol. 1, you should not feel pressured to read every book and complete every activity - history studied in this manner should be a fun and enjoyable journey for all involved, not an endless checklist of items you "have to" complete to pass a test. These courses lend themselves very well to family study, and a lot of the activities would be much more enjoyable with at least a couple siblings or friends. Fortunately, Susan Wise Bauer has anticipated this, and has denoted chosen activities with a "C" to highlight its use as a good co-op or classroom activity. All in all, this looks like an very well-rounded, extremely enjoyable, and solidly chronological approach to history

    The text is available spiral-bound in the first edition or in paperback or hardcover in the revised version. the Activity Book is a bound paperback and is the revised version.

     Self-described as Charlotte Mason-flavored, this is language arts curriculum with a Biblical emphasis. As a starting place for each weekly lesson, students will read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences. Each week follows the same pattern of activities: Day 1, read the weekly story; Days 2-3, learn topics in writing, grammar and punctuation; Day 4, write responses to a prompt (alternating between picture study, poetry and a Psalm); and Day 5, work on spelling and vocabulary and build a dictionary. Brief assessments are provided quarterly. The fourth quarter is designed for review. Starting with Level 2, students are introduced to punctuation, grammar & writing. students will learn about nouns, compound words, subjects/predicates; possessive nouns; combining sentences; commas; interjections; action verbs; homophones; synonyms/antonyms and specific verbs such as be, has and see and pronouns like this and that. Biblical themes and assignments (such as memorizing verses from 1 Corinthians 13 alongside Micah and Claire) are used throughout. Level 3 will further strengthen previous reading, observation and communication skills, and begin writing paragraphs. Level 4 (expected late 2018) will strengthen previous skills and add study in noun types, verb tenses, mechanics and write compositions.

      This is a combined student and teacher consumable book. On the student pages, teacher notes are highlighted and kept minimal. While designed for you and the student to work along together, this text provides additional direction in the front matter and in the Teacher’s Aid section (about 100 pgs) in the back. This section includes dictionary pages to copy (or you can print off from the publisher’s web site); optional games to practice different language skills; spelling practice ideas; sight words alphabet practice; copywork practice; and grammar study sheets. You’ll want to provide more reading practice opportunities: a template to record these and a recommended Master Books reading list is included. Scriptures are from the NASB. Non-reproducible, consumable and 3-hole punched.

      Master Books recommends beginning this series after Foundations Phonics and Basic Language Skills. However, to select a starting place, the general expectation is that the student’s skills should be comfortably at grade level (in reading, writing, and in handwriting). 

    Approx 476 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

    Homeschool teachers will go to great lengths to help their students overcome difficulties. Take Beverly Adams-Gordon, for example. An engineer and Montessori teacher, she left her teaching job to homeschool in an effort to solve her youngest daughter's severe spelling problems. Finding no suitable material, she thoroughly researched the subject and developed her own spelling curriculum.

    So what is different?

    • * It's all in one book. One purchase for all years for all kids.
    • * A chapter on research details the most effective methods of spelling instruction.
    • * Complete instructions for introducing, implementing and evaluating the program. Directions are given for adapting to different learning styles and ages.
    • * The program takes only 15 minutes/day.
    • * Extensive Word Lists are based on research done after 1979 of most frequently used and misspelled words. Word lists used in most other programs are based on lists created in 1915 or 1947. Two lists are provided, with 5,000 and 12,000 words, respectively.
    • * General and specific placement tests start each student right where he needs to be.
    • * Program is based on phonics and spelling rules, not phonics alone.
    • * Review is built into the program which uses a "spiral" approach (repeated and spaced review) similar to the approach Saxon takes in it's problem sets.
    • * Directions for over 100 games and activities are included which concentrate on specific skills and make spelling more interesting. Most are individual or partner games, but some can be played by up to 6 players.

    Now available in its 4th edition. Spelling Power retains all of its award-winning effective procedures, but it is more user-friendly with larger type and more graphics. Easier to read and less intimidating, there is also improved organization of resources. The 4th edition Spelling Power package includes access to the Teacher's Online Resources on the publisher's website and an updated Quick Start DVD seminar. The Quick Start DVD provides a personal step-by-step introduction to using the Spelling Power program featuring author Beverly Adams-Gordon who explains each step as "real" homeschool moms and students demonstrate. The Teacher's Online Resources includes printable forms, searchable word lists, charts, printable Activity Task Cards, bonus activities, and the Digital Spelling Tutor which allows you to create spelling lists for multiple children, offers learning, drill and testing activities, tracks several children's progress, allows you to create and print progress reports, and can be used with any spelling word list.

    Spelling Power provides the most thorough coverage of spelling that we have seen. This one is a "classic."

    Hear it is! Weight know longer! This is won grate book that shouldn't bee mist! Seriously, this is a very helpful resource. The cover says it has "more homophones than you can shake a stick at." I don't know how many that is, but 101 sound-alike pairs and triples are covered in this book via grade-leveled worksheets and other activities. Worksheets have target homophones in large lettering on the top and ten fill-in-the-blank exercises The worksheets are intended as reinforcement; you should introduce the homophones and their correct usage before having students work them. There are also additional activities or fun facts at the bottom of each page plus an entire page of additional suggestions for using the sheets. A section of graphic organizer sheets can be used to illustrate (or paste pictures of) homophones and define them. This could even be part of your instruction process prior to having students work through the exercises. A section of homophone crossword puzzles is included following the worksheets. A table tells you when you can use each puzzle (the first can be completed after using the 2nd grade sheets). Six different homophone card games are provided, complete with cards to photocopy onto cardstock and/or laminate. A final section of More Homophone Tools contains a listing of books about or using homophones; My List of Homophones student sheets (for students to compile their own lists); tongue twisters; riddles; puns; answer keys for the worksheets and puzzles; and, finally, a mega-list of homophones (maybe more than you can shake a stick at). I think it's safe to say that this is the only homophone reference/resource book you'll ever knead!

    What a fun way to learn basic addition and subtraction! The idea is to roll the +/- die, roll 2 number dice, and then figure out the equation. It is really quite simple. This set of 6 Hexahedron (6 sided) dice has 2 dice numbered from 1-6, 2 numbered from 7-12, 1 marked + and –, and 1 marked with all = signs. The dice are white with sharp, black markings, and instructions are included on the pack. ~ Phyllis

    Phonics instruction integrated with Bible stories and verses. Is a well-done program with these characteristics exactly what you're looking for? Master Books has introduced an easy-to-use program with straight-forward lessons and little prep for the teacher. Starting with letter recognition it proceeds through short vowels, long vowels, and some digraphs. Both letter sounds and printing letter strokes are taught.

    Organization is not typical (N, D, A, T, S, P). The accompanying narratives are in biblical chronological order, however. Daily lessons introduce letters with a biblical narrative (N is for nothing, none, not even a bit! Genesis 1:1-2) and a Bible verse. The lesson/narrative is scripted for the teacher and includes questions for the student, finger tracing, listening, identifying words with the letter sound, and reading practice followed by a worksheet for the student to complete. Bonus (optional) activities are provided to use as needed and time permits. Introductory material for the teacher includes general instruction, a writing readiness assessment, sight words for each lesson, helpful hints for teaching the lessons, a materials list, a daily lesson schedule (5 days a week for 18 weeks), and a progress chart. There are periodic reviews.

    This is a one semester course for either Kindergarten or First Grade. It seems like the publisher may be planning a sequel but if not this is an excellent standalone and will get your student off to a good start. ~ Janice

    Now there's no reason to wait until your student is in 3rd grade. Bible Heroes is an excellent language arts bridge from IEW's Primary Arts of Language to their theme-based writing lessons. Or you might decide to use it as a new entry point for the IEW program (as you finish your favorite phonics/reading program). Either way, I think you will be very pleased with what this program supplies – lessons that not only provide instruction in writing with structure and style (as the name implies), but also introductory grammar and Bible. The 27 lessons cover IEW Unit 1 (two lessons teaching Key Word Outlines), Unit 2 (seven lessons on Writing from KWOs), Unit 3 (twelve lessons on Summarizing Narrative Stories), Unit 4 (three lessons on Summarizing References), Unit 5 (three lessons on Writing From Pictures), and Unit 7 (one lesson on Creative Writing) The approach is solidly multi-sensory. Lessons include verbal and written activities as well as games for reinforcement and all source material is taken from the Bible. Although the target audience for this course is 1st-2nd grade, material can be adapted for up to 5th grade.

    The consumable Student Book provides instructions which are to be read to the student, additional gray boxes that have notes to the teacher, and space for students to complete lessons and writing assignments. Appendices include: styles helps, game pieces (cardstock), and vocabulary cards (also cardstock).

    Purchasers of this course have access to two free downloads from the IEW website. One of the downloads is the Student Resource Notebook (also available for purchase in hard copy format). It provides supplementary and reference material needed by the student. The other download is the Bible Heroes Teacher's E-book; this Teacher's Manual is a vital part of the course and its use is expected. It provides more detailed instructions for each lesson, a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussion of each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming pages, instruction for games and activities, copies of checklists, and copies of game boards. ~ Janice

    Originally developed as a software package, the success of this simple, phonetically-based program encouraged the publication of The Reading Lesson book. The Reading Lesson is broken into 20 lessons, intended to be done side-by-side with a parent or teacher. A correlating Reading Lesson CD-ROM is available from the publisher, which features animations, audio and simple games. However, the book can be used on its own, and at this time the book is the only component we are offering.

    Lessons introduce and use specific letters and sounds. The entire alphabet is not taught at the beginning, nor is it taught in order. Letters and sounds are introduced in groups which can be used to read the corresponding simple stories. For example, Lesson One introduces c, o, s, a and t while Lesson Two features m, d and r. Each lesson contains information for the parent or teacher, words, exercises and short stories. The pacing of the lessons will depend on the child's age, and a suggested number of pages per day is provided. The authors suggest spending no more than 15 minutes on a lesson each day, so as to not exceed the child's attention span. Each page is written to both student and teacher, with instructions in small print at the top. Where letters, words, or sentences are given, small bars underneath the letters remind the reader to focus on one sound at a time, as they point at the letter (these bars disappear towards the end of the book). Gradually (with the parent modeling) the student will start to blend the sounds and read the words. The book teaches most phonetic sounds and blends; however, there are several that might be taught specificially in another course that are designated as "sight words" in this course. Only lowercase letters are taught until the 11th lesson, when several capital letters that look similar to their lowercase counterparts are introduced ('I' is also introduced here, with an explanation on its slightly different look). Other topics, such as the suffix "-ing",and apostrophes are also introduced as they are necessary, but are not covered in a great amount of depth. The emphasis here is to give the child the skills to decode and read words, so that they will "graduate" from the book with a 2nd-grade reading level. With the straightforward presentation, simple effective activities and reinforcement, this book makes the task do-able for student and teacher. Please note that there are several other companion products that are available from the publisher. To preview these, please check out www.readinglesson.com. - Jess
