    Sure, we all study astronomy in high school, but does the astronomy you studied help you to navigate, tell time, or even identify the planets as they appear to us in the sky? Probably not, if you, like me and many others, studied astronomy primarily as ½Å"modern astronomy" which offers dazzling telescopic photos of the planets, and information based on measurements made by astronomers. So, what's the difference? Classical astronomy is based on how humans on earth view the sky, and how we can learn the patterns of movement of the sun, moon and stars and apply this knowledge for practical use. This is the way astronomy has been studied for centuries, before we developed high-tech instruments to satisfy our never-ending curiosity about the surfaces of other planets, the structure of stars and planets, and what else is out there.

    To fulfill this purpose, Signs & Seasons focuses on learning classical astronomy through the cycles of movement of celestial bodies and how these change through a day, a month, and a year. The course is written from a Biblical standpoint, and author Jay Ryan reminds us that keeping time through the days, months, and seasons were actually the purpose that the sun, moon, and stars were created. Seven chapters (and an epilogue) cover an introduction to the sky, day, night, the cycle of the month, the position of the sun in the sky and its' apparent movement to us, the cycle of the month, the seasonal stars, ½Å"wandering" stars (planets), and the calendar. Topics studied within include the divisions of the day, astronomical alignments, the circle of the meridian, phases of the moon, eclipses and why they occur, changes in the sky through the seasons, the motions of the planets, and much more. Historical information is woven throughout the text, which ties together what we observe in the skies today, and what ancient astronomers learned from viewing the same sky years ago.

    Each chapter is formatted like a science text, with very readable, fascinating text accompanied by large, clear, grayscale illustrations that follow along and offer a visual component that matches the reading. The diagrams that show the movement of the stars are especially helpful, as they show their change in position over time, from the ground, so they should be similar to what you observe in the night sky. Quotes from the Bible, famous astronomers, and various other places are scattered throughout the text, and in keeping with the ½Å"classical" theme, historical woodcuts and vintage art also accompany the text.

    Following the text portion of the book, you'll find a section of ½Å"field activities" to be used with each chapter. These include making and maintaining a field journal to record all of your observations, sketching diagrams of the sun, moon and stars and doing hands-on manipulative activities with a globe and cardboard models. Activities are given for all major topics covered which allow you to see the astronomical topics in practice and are sure to make them very memorable! Guiding questions accompany the observation activities and give students a guideline for their journal entries as they observe. Although there are no study or review questions found in the book chapters, keep an eye out for the accompanying workbook that will be available soon. An appendix at the end of the book holds a glossary, bibliographies of quoted authors, astronomical tables for viewing the stars and planets, a bibliography and index. So, if you think you've already covered astronomy, sit tight and enjoy this course which helps you understand what you actually see when you look up at the stars at night. 262 pages, hardcover. ½" Jess

    One of the "blessings" of being in my family is helping to review products. Sometimes it can be dull, but sometimes we receive fun stuff, and Melissa and I often end up playing games like this one. This game would be good practice for a younger child that knows his basic operations, but it was also challenging for Melissa and I, as we studied the board and our tiles to find the equation worth the most possible points. The board is similar to a Scrabble board, with 361 squares including 36 3S squares (3 times symbol score), 38 2S squares (2 times symbol square), 9 2E squares (2 times equation score), and 8 3E squares, (3 times equation score). 44 sign tiles (plus, minus, times, and divide by); 78 number tiles, 0-9; 25 fraction tiles, with halves, thirds, fourths, and sixths; plus three blank tiles are included. This game plays like Scrabble, too. The same crossword structure is formed as each player picks nine tiles and uses as many as possible to get the most points, then restocks his tray. Equal signs are "free," but you are only allowed one per play. - Stephanie

    "It's just common sense!" Actually, it's the Blue Book Common Sense Reading Program and yes, everything about this program is common sense. A very complete program organized around quality children's literature (like all LLATL programs) and covering phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" (small story book) book which uses those sounds. The literature component - carefully selected children's favorites - reminds students that the reason for all the hard work in phonics is the joy of reading wonderful books. And woven through both of these elements is comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts. Relying heavily on Ruth Beechick's principles for teaching reading (including her letter dice activities), the program includes a wide variety of activities appealing to all learning styles. The teacher's manual is a homeschooler's dream with all the work having been done for you, taking you step-by-step through the 36-week program. New skills are listed for each lesson with a materials list included at the beginning. Almost no teacher preparation is needed - you teach as you read. All answers are provided within the lesson. Higher-order thinking activities are italicized. Examples and diagrams are user-friendly including the easy-to-follow references to the Student Activity Book. Each of the four parts (readiness, short vowels, consonant blends and short vowels, and long vowels) concludes with an evaluation for determining your child's readiness for the next level. The Student Activity Book contains the materials (except for household and school supplies) needed for cut and paste, word wheels, flip books, picture sequencing, story-telling puppets, PLUS handwriting pages that teach all upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation. The comfortable, natural handwriting method that isn't exactly traditional, modern, or italic was developed by the authors. This handwriting instruction is coordinated with the phonics and includes pages for children to carefully complete and display or give as gifts.

    The Student Activity Book is consumable, even having an easy-release binding that allows for clean page removal. Even the back cover is put to good use providing the miniature book covers to be added to the personal reading chart that marks the child's progress. 28 separate readers cover short vowels, blends (bridge readers), and long vowels. They are small-sized for little hands and include black-and-white illustrations. Stories are engaging which is a good thing since a week's worth of learning activities are built around them. The student uses puppets to retell the stories, completes sequencing activities with a series of reader-related events, and answers comprehension questions. One interesting aspect of the teacher-student interaction concerning these readers is that the week's lesson starts off with the teacher reading the small book to the child. After several lessons thoroughly covering the new phonics steps and practice reading parts of the story, the student concludes the week with the successful reading of the small book. This is an effective variation of the typical approach because the goal of reading the book is always before the student. The materials packet is a useful collection of color-coded letter and word cards to use for learning and review along with cards used for reinforcement games and, of course, the letter dice (to be assembled from cardstock patterns). While this part of the program is not exactly consumable - you could use the various components again - the components do get a workout. If you are expecting to use the program with another child, you'll want to save these items and covering them with clear contact paper to preserve them would also be a good idea. The program includes the Teacher's Manual, the Student Activity Book, the 28 Readers, and the Materials Packet.

    We sell additional Student Activity Books, Reader Sets, and Material Packets so you can use the program with a second student. Well-known children's literature (Read-Aloud Library) is suggested each week, so at the same time your child is learning phonics, he is also learning other important reading skills such as literal recall, comprehension, predicting outcome, and drawing conclusions. These books are an integral part of the program and the Student Activity Book relies on them. Although usually available at the local library, for your convenience we also sell them. They are listed in order of use. Although this program focuses on first grade skills, it would be possible to use this program with a "ready" kindergartner. It would also work well with a slightly older child who is still a just-getting-started reader. ~ Janice

    This simple tool is a great asset when teaching beginning math facts. It's a triangular white board with three 10" sides. It's double sided and has a write-and-wipe surface that works with any dry-erase marker (not included). Displayed on one side are four simple equations with the numbers left blank (two of __+__=__ and two of __-__ =__ ). The corners of the triangle are shaded different colors and teachers can write variables in the three corners and have students plug them in appropriately. For example, if 10, 7, and 3 were written in the corners, students could write 7+3=10, 3+7=10, 10-7=3, and 10-3=7. The opposite side of the board is identical but displays multiplication and division signs instead of addition and subtraction. With such an open-ended format and a reusable surface, this board is sure to get plenty of use. ~Rachel

    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits – and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leif's Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bomb's close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between – explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more – in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: "…everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage." ~ Janice

    A favorite topic at our house, with at least two resident horse-lovers, and one difficult Arabian (Megan's pride and joy). Beginning in the 1700's with the Godolphin Arabian, this course studies breeds and their histories, using Marguerite Henry books and the classics Black Stallion and Black Beauty (among others). Well-written lesson plans involve the student in a chronological study of horses and breeds, including horse anatomy, identification, sketching horses, charting blood lines, and Bible memory verses regarding the horse. This would be a one-year study if you complete two lessons per week. Resources below include some excellent literature and reference books.

    This colorful book introduces students to the seven Roman Numeral symbols and then progresses to "building" larger numbers using the seven symbols. Plenty of examples for small and large numbers are given, with step-by-step instructions for adding (and subtracting) according to the rules of Roman Numerals. Playful, colorful illustrations of armor-clad, toga-wearing, chariot-riding Romans enhance the lessons as the Romans "demonstrate" the concepts with signs, banners, and Roman Numerals painted on their shields. Also included is a hands-on practice activity that students can do by taping Roman Numeral symbols to coins, allowing them to practice the concepts of place value and adding numerals. By David A. Adler; illust by Edward Miller III. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Eight lessons help kids understand what it means to be salt & light to the world and encourage them to develop a Christlike servant attitude. 262 pgs, hc.

    I Peter 3:15 says "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have," and this book offers the information you need to prepare to give those answers. This hefty 400+ page book will prepare believers to defend their faith and offers solid research and scientific fact for those who are skeptics, from the perspective of two gentlemen who were atheists and came to Christ through evidence.

    This text explores the meaning of truth and the truth of religion through evidence that supports Bible content in the areas of origins, miracles and signs of God, testimony to Jesus' life, inspiration of the Word of God, and more. The curriculum guide follows the text chapter by chapter and is designed to help students remember and understand the content presented in the text. This guide is published by Apologia and co-authored by Frank Turek & Chuck Winter. Frank is also one of the authors of the text, so the two books work together flawlessly for a complete one-year study of worldview and apologetics. The curriculum guide presents supplemental material, study questions, and activities for discussion, writing, and reflection. There is no answer key for the guide, but the author suggests that most answers can be found easily in the text, and sometimes page numbers are given to help you find them. Each lesson begins with pages to read from the text, important vocabulary with space to write their definitions, and four sections titled hook, book, look, and took. Hook is designed to get your attention and make you think; Book takes you deeper into the topic covered in the chapter; Look allows opportunities for the student to research assignments or other suggested activities; and Took summarizes the information and helps you apply it. A DVD series has been developed which features Frank Turek and enhances the content of the course, but it isn't required to complete the course.

    This course is easy to read and presents arguments for Christianity in a truly logical fashion. Humorous anecdotes are presented to reinforce some topics, and biographical information of some very famous scientists dot the landscape of this text and curriculum. Even if you don't want to use this as a high school course/elective, the text is an interesting read for anyone who has questions or wants to know how to defend their faith.

    When your little ones look up into the night sky, can they identify star patterns or constellations? Or do they only see "a bunch of stars"? If they fall into the latter category, this book is for them! The front of the book answers common questions, such as: what is a constellation, why do stars move, how do I find constellations, and more. There are 26 constellations found in this book and each has a two-page spread. The left page shows the constellation as a dot-to-dot, with information on how to find it in the night sky. The right page includes the fictional story of that constellation and some type of activity, such as: name the constellations, find your Zodiac sign, mazes, picture completion, word searches, bingo, crosswords, and more. There are even cards with the star patterns printed on them for you to cut apart and use for learning. Answers for the activities are found in the back of the book. Start your children young and make stargazing a family activity! 64 pgs. ~ Donna
