    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.

    Math understanding doesn’t magically occur when a child begins their academic years – kindergarten and up. Their brains are developing from the time they are born, and you, the parent, can do things to help with that development and lay the foundation as they approach kindergarten. Games – my favorite way to teach young children! This 100-page, softcover book is full of games to help your young child develop an understanding of number concepts – counting, comparing and ordering, recognizing written numerals, and beginning addition and subtraction. You may already be doing some of the activities found in this book, but this book lays out the content in a categorized fashion. There are seven chapters – counting to five, counting to ten, numbers from zero to five, numbers from six to ten, written numerals from 0 to 10, comparing quantities and numbers, and addition and subtraction stories. This isn’t a workbook, but a great resource for parents.

    Typically, you will be able to use these activities with a child who is about 4, but you know your child best and can begin when you believe they are ready. The author suggests that you do the activities in this book in the order they are presented, take as much time as needed with each, and a questionnaire at the end of each chapter will help you determine whether your child is ready to move on. Children may progress at different rates, so be patient as you work with your child. Most importantly, have fun while incorporating these activities into your child’s day. You don’t want them to hate math before they even get going strong. The activities use items from around your home or are easily accessible. You may want to put together a math basket with the following items: 20 small counters, resource pages from the back of the book, one nickel and ten pennies, blank paper and a writing tool. Additional items that may be used occasionally are: ten small toys, four stuffed animals, small blanket, two small paper bags, two regular dice, tape, two different small objects for game tokens, two different-coloring writing utensils, toy cups, plates, spoons, and play food items, dot stickers, small food items, large index cards, and small stickers.

    Use these simple activities to solidify your child’s math foundation and only spend a few minutes a day doing so. Get them ready for kindergarten math and have fun in the process. ~ Donna

    Try and make your giraffe the tallest without toppling over! Your goal is to get points by reading the leaves on the tree. Higher leaves have more point value. Each player builds up the neck of their giraffe by rolling a die which shows different-shaped neck blocks. Players take turns rolling the die, adding blocks to their giraffe and collecting leaves for points. The winner has the most points when all the leaves are eaten. The rules are simple to follow and explain various possibilities clearly, something I always look for in a game! The die and giraffe pieces are made of dense foam, while the tree is made of heavy cardboard. They are all colorful and charming and your kiddos will love the feel of the foam as they stack their giraffes taller and taller. The foam also makes for a nice quiet game. The leaves are numbered 1-5, so there is a bit of math as you total your scores. An average game takes about 15 minutes to play. For ages 3+, 2-4 players ~ Sara

      Lots of children's books to read together? Check. Fun themes for every week? Check. Designed specifically for homeschoolers? Check. Bible-based? Check. Easy to use? Check. All-inclusive? Check, again. Obviously, this program has it all! I took one look at this program and fell in love. I currently have five children, two not yet in Kindergarten, so I'm in the thick of homeschooling these early learning years myself! I opened the Kindergarten Semester 1 Teacher's Binder and was immediately impressed with its usability and attractiveness, for both teacher and student.

      This program is based on a 36 week school year, with planned activities for four days each week and one open day for either catch up or activities of your choice. Subjects include Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Physical Development and Fitness, Fine Arts, and Character Development/Bible, and the scope and sequence appears to be traditional in terms of pacing. The program is heavily literature-based, which I love, and my kids love! You can choose to either check the books out of the library or purchase some or all of the titles. The Teacher's Binders include all lesson plans and a single copy of all student pages 3-hole punched for easy removability. Additional student workbooks (200+ pages per semester) can be purchased either in a binder or as refill pages.

      When you first open the Teacher's Binder, you will find an overview chart that shows the months and the themes for each week. Notes are given for teaching procedures, skills that will be acquired, organization and planning, using the daily lesson plans, daily routines, pledges and songs, etc. Then you get to the weekly lessons. Each week starts with a page showing the theme, the required literature, additional literature, and a Bible verse that pertains to the theme. Turning the page gives you the lesson plans by day, starting with skills to be learned in the lesson, a list of required materials, and then delving into step-by-step direction for each subject covered that day. The plans are very clean and almost scripted, so it's easy for anyone to just pick up and do once required materials have been gathered.

      Worksheets used for the lesson follow the teaching plans. The worksheets are clean, attractive, and inviting. Most lessons have one worksheet, some have a couple. You can start days off with prayers or pledges, and then go into calendar activities which include knowing what day it is today, yesterday, and tomorrow, marking off days on the calendar, counting up to today's date, singing songs to learn days of the week or months of the year, the weather outside, using patterns, etc. Next are subject-specific assignments for each day, laid out with bullet points. Math activities usually include a mix of hands-on activities and a simple workbook page. You read a book with your child every day, and the Teacher's Manual includes questions for discussion. Each day includes other activities that utilize drawing, writing, arts & crafts, memorizing, physical fun, singing songs, nature walks and much more.

      In the back of each binder, you'll find an appendix containing flashcard templates, rhymes and songs, recipes, materials used (shown with general weekly materials, and broken down for each week - more convenient than looking at each day!), a literature list, and more.

       Bundles include the Semesters Teacher’s Binder, a 12-month blank calendar, several sets of flashcards, games, and several other manipulative resources.  You can purchase the Full Year Bundle which includes the teacher’s manuals for both semesters and the other resources listed above, or purchase a Semester Bundle which includes one teacher’s manual and resources listed above used for that semester. Teacher’s Manuals include all the plans and one set of student pages.

      All in all, this solid program gets a thumbs-up from me! It is so user-friendly, covers a full range of great concepts and skills, ensures lots of quality and fun school-time with your young children, and introduces you to many engaging children's books. ~ Megan

    Teaching writing can be very rewarding, even if frustrating at times. The key is to find a program that teaches the useful skills of writing in a way that children will open up to and enjoy. If we ask the question, "What do children love?", one answer will always be, "Games, without a doubt, games!" So, why not try and incorporate games into the writing process? Here is a book that resulted from that. The five parts of this book are: first, activities designed to ease kindergarten and 1st graders into writing; second, slightly silly and not very long writing activities (this way it is more something to enjoy than to think of as an assignment); third, nine playful ways to improving spelling and handwriting, and to increase understanding of English grammar; fourth, activities that help children work on more sophisticated stories; and last of all, activities that involve longer writing projects, some of which will require a half hour or so of time. As the teacher, you can select whichever activities and games you feel would be best for your children, made easier because each game is graded and placed into one of the five areas above. 52 games in all. ~ Zach

    Don't be fooled by the price tag on this product, the cards in this box are more than just a game. This box is full of vocabulary words – 550 in all – with fun illustrations, definitions, pronunciations, and more. Each card is about the size and weight of a playing card and is punched in one corner (place on the included ring to use on the go). On the front of each card is an original drawing in full color, which acts as a mnemonic and on the reverse is the word, part of speech, pronunciation, definition, sample sentence, synonyms and antonyms. For example, Card #101 features "bombastic." The definition given on the back of the card is that it is an adjective, which means "excessively confident; pompous." The drawing on the front of the card is of a young man wearing a shirt that says "the man" and he is saying of himself "I'm the bomb" – he is being pompous or bombastic. These original little drawings work well for visual learners, and are a great option for learning new vocabulary.

    You can use these cards to play the "Picture Words" game by placing any number of cards, picture side up, on the table. The object of the game is to guess the definition of the words using only the picture. If you guess correctly, you collect the card and the person with the most cards wins the game.

    Another option for play is "Marie's Wordsmith" game. One person, the wordsmith, pulls a card from the box, shows it to the other players, and reads the part of speech, pronunciation, and definition on the back of the card. Each player writes a sentence using the word, while the wordsmith copies the sentence from the back of the card. Mix all sentences together and earn a point every time you can choose the sentence that was copied from the back of the card.

    There is a lot of information packed on each of these cards, and they will help anyone make a visual connection to vocabulary words. Marie's Words can be used at any grade level kindergarten through 12 for some real vocabulary fun! - Donna
