    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 will you 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.

    Your mission - use your sharp calculation skills to find your way through this museum filled with light barriers and retrieve the mask of Amun Re. Roll the six dice and figure out how you can use the numbers to match the tile number in front of you. For example, the number for the laser in front of you is a 4. If one of the dice rolled is a 4, use that die to deactivate the light barrier. If not, add, subtract, multiply, or divide the dice numbers to try to calculate that number. Once past a barrier, reroll all the dice not used for the last barrier to try to get past the next one. Variations of the game and a board that changes with every game give this great replay value for continuous calculation practice.

    It's the job of Pepi's father to paint and carve pictures in the future-tomb of Prince Dhutmose. He paints best when he has a living example to work from, but how is he supposed to do that with the god-animals like Sebek the Crocodile and Mertseger the Cobra? Fortunately, Pepi knows their secret names, and sets out to convince them to come with him. This oversized childrens' book is super colorful and introduces hieroglyphics. – Chad

    At its heart, coding is simple, especially with the help of robots! Utilizing three coding languages, this book strives to give young kids a simple activity-based introduction to programming. The first chapter begins with some basic computers and logic info before diving into some “pen and paper” programming challenges (such as getting a friend to draw by instructing them to move the pen in different directions). These simple activities lay the groundwork for learning to program increasingly complicated functions in Scratch, Logo, and Python. Finally, the last chapter gives students the opportunity to create their very own websites using Python and Javascript! With the help of an engaging cast of colored robots and pages that look like they come straight from a robot factory, learning to program is a snap. 128 pgs, pb.

    Have you ever seen a parent and child together and been jealous of their close and sincere relationship? This book shows parents how they can take practical steps to develop a relationship with their children that will last and be strengthened through the teenage and adult years. It's hard to get kids to share everything with their parents, but this book gives good tips on how to get it done and proves that it's possible. Written by a mother/daughter team who seem to have an air-tight relationship, the book shares their personal story. The daughter is grown with children of her own now, but she recounts stories from her childhood. The mom seems to be quite the character, and she also tells stories and explains how she took deliberate steps to make sure their relationship had a foundation in Christ and her daughter always felt safe and eager to share everything with her. It's interesting to see how the two kept the lines of communication open throughout the years and how the mom made sure the daughter always felt loved and cared for, even when being punished. The main point of the book is that you need to take time out of your schedule to have one-on-one time with your child so they know that even the most trivial aspect of their lives is important to you and worth sharing. It admits that creating an unbreakable bond with your child can take work, but it's biblically based and definitely worth the effort. Full of biblical wisdom on how to develop healthy communication within the home. By Sky McNeill and Paula Stevenson, 144 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Subtitled "Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," I could see this book serving as a great introduction to Latin for the family who is not sure they want to jump right into a full-fledged Latin course. Of course, it would be just as useful for an older student (or even Mom and Dad), if they have never studied Latin but want to learn it on their own. The course was designed out of necessity by author William E. Linney, after he was asked by a relative to teach Latin to her children. He set out looking for a course that would not require a Latin teacher, was self-paced, self explanatory, offered lots of practice exercises, was non-threatening, and inexpensive. When he couldn't find a course that suited his needs, he designed this one. The book contains 134 lessons, which are short (usually less than a page in length), un-fluffy, and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a nice balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. No lesson covers all of these tasks, but instead focuses on one objective and covers it well. Lessons that introduce new Latin vocabulary feature a new Latin word, its English meaning, and sometimes a pronunciation tip. This is usually followed by about ten sentences to translate. Lessons on grammar are also bite-sized, and different forms and cases are introduced gradually. As they are introduced, they are added to a chart, and students will translate sentences that use the forms and cases that they have learned. As charts are filled with endings or forms, students may be asked to memorize them, to aid in future lessons. Just for fun, "Latin Expressions" are scattered throughout the book. In each one, the author takes a common Latin phrase like "caveat emptor," or "etc." and explains the Latin history behind each phrase. Don't underestimate how these little "sparks" of knowledge whet your appetite to learn more! By the end of the book, students will have stockpiled basic vocabulary of around 100 words, be comfortable translating simple sentences in Latin, and have a grasp of basic Latin grammar.

    There are a couple of aspects of this course worth noting. First of all, because the book is more of a text than a worktext it is not designed to be consumable. For translation purposes, the author recommends translating the sentences in a separate notebook. If extra practice is desired, you may wish to translate the sentences back to the form given in the lesson. Secondly, while we all realize that pronunciation is very difficult to teach "out of a book", the author has considered this, and has come up with an ingenious solution. He has provided MP3 audio files free of charge on his website, which can be downloaded and used with the lessons. As an added bonus, you can choose from either classical pronunciation or ecclesiastical pronunciation. Audio commentary on the lessons and a host of other helpful resources is also included on the website. Lastly, this course would be excellent prep for an older student who will be studying Latin in high school or college who hasn't had the benefit of laying a basic Latin foundation earlier in life. Upon completion of this book, I think students would be more ready to tackle Lingua Latina, Oxford University Latin, Henle Latin, or Cambridge Latin, than if they were starting off cold. Latina Christiana I or other complete courses designed for younger students could also be considered reasonable continuations, although there would be much more overlap/review between courses. This is a terrific way to get started in Latin and I am glad that the author did not find what he was looking for to teach Latin, because he has certainly written a course that fulfills all of his goals! – Jess

    More flexible than attribute blocks! More fun than Venn diagrams! It's fast-paced. It's challenging! It's...fun! I fell in love with this game the very moment I saw it. It sounds simple; players race to see which three cards (of the twelve showing) form a "set". There are no turns, no waiting - the quickest to deduce a logical set wins the point. There is no age advantage; your children can beat you if their visual perception in sharper than yours. Even when played alone, the game is a mental challenge. With opponents, the heat is on! MENSA chose this game as a top mind game in 1991 - chosen for originality, intellectual challenge, aesthetics, quality and longevity (you won't quickly tire of this game!). So... are you ready to get Set?

    Whaaaat? – you might ask. Except for knowing that this is somehow involved with place value, it’s hard to envision what this might be from its name. However, trust me; it’s a handy little gadget that can be used to illustrate and to help students with beginning calculations in the often confusing world of place value. What you have is a set of five stacking yellow plastic cups. The bottom cup has an up-pointing arrow on the edge. The next cup is the thousands cup and has red digits 0-9 along the edge; each digit followed by three zeroes up the side of the cup. The next three cups are like this one with green (hundreds), light blue (tens) and dark blue (ones). Perhaps a bit hard to imagine, it’s never-the-less a clever way to demonstrate place value. When the cups are stacked and held sideways in your hand, they twist and you can form numbers starting with the arrow on the left. Rotating the cups clockwise shows addition and counter-clockwise shows subtraction. Starting simply by using just the tens and ones cup, you can begin to get a feel for the whole process. A brief how-to instruction sheet gives you the basics and then you’ll be ready to use this simple device for number sense problems, adding/subtracting and skip counting. I have to admit to being a bit confused by the grade level designations. The manufacturer says 5th grade and up. However, the device seems simple enough and the demonstrated concepts are often introduced at a much younger level – say 2nd/3rd grade. ~ Janice

    Combine the strategy of SET with the challenge of a crossword-type game, and you get SET Cubed! This game includes a 9x9 grid board, 42 dice printed with SET symbols, and a cloth bag. To begin, each player draws five dice, and everyone rolls them simultaneously. The first player to find a "SET" plays first, placing their three dice in the middle of the board. Subsequent players roll their dice, and try to make SETs between their dice, and the dice already on the board. Sets can be formed with each die added, so scoring can add up as a player adds one, then two, and then three dice to the board. "Wild" dice and bonus squares on the board add even more twists to the game! If you enjoy the SET card game and are ready for a new challenge, you'll love SET Cubed. If you're not familiar with SET, this is a good way to get the hang of making SETS, since each player has a turn and the action is a bit slower-paced! 2-4 players.

    Wisdom may be a tricky concept for young children to grasp, yet the Bible is very clear on how critical it is. Perhaps the best way to illustrate wisdom is to teach the outworkings of it in life. Author Ruth Younts has done a wonderful job of showing what wisdom in action looks like through these simple, attractive lessons on listening, obedience, contentment, orderliness, mercy, gratitude, respect, trust, truthfulness, patience, discernment and a dozen other traits. Both the student and teacher pages are in the one book, and there is plenty of instruction for teaching and applying each lesson already included. It is intended that a parent or teacher work through the lessons with the child, and the book can easily be used in either a family or a class setting. 91 pgs, pb. – Zach
