    This one might be too pretty to be a math game! The smooth colorful tiles, the chunky die, the cone-shaped pouch… it all adds up to a game that begs to jump off the shelf and be played. In the game, 2-5 players all use their tiles to add onto a central number "crossword" made up of tiles. At the beginning of the game, the die is rolled to find the "key" number. This will be 3, 4 or 5. Players will each draw eight tiles to start, and the first player uses as many of their tiles as possible to build a row that not only adds up to a multiple of the key number, but doesn't repeat any color of tile. So if the key number is '5' you could lay down a green '1,' an orange '9,' a purple '3' and a red '7.' The total of the tiles is 20, which is a multiple of five, and no color is used more than once. The next player then uses as many of their tiles as possible, while adding onto the first player's row. You can also add more tiles to an existing row, as long as you don't break the color or number rule. The game ends when all tiles have been used that can be used, and the player with the most points wins. Variations for other versions are also included.

      Knowing your times tables are so important to building your solid foundation for upper level math. Drills aren’t always the best way for students to learn and remember their multiplication facts. Through simple stories and the same lovable number characters found on the Times Tales DVD, children will practice facts for the upper numbers in the 3’s, 4’s, 6’s, 7’s, 8’s, and 9’s. These workbook pages are black and white and provide practice that can be done even if you aren’t using the Times Tales DVD. Children will learn the story, answer questions, work puzzles, review, quiz, and test along with cutting out fact cards and assembling number story books. After completing the multiplication portions of the workbook, a short division section is offered. Answer keys are found in the back of the book and a DVD is also included where students can practice their new multiplication skills in a game show format. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    The book to have on hand for high school essay writing. This is not just an attempt on my part at a play on words; its the best description of this book. A compilation of two books from a Canadian author that have impacted the authors writing (Janice Campbell, author of the Excellence in Literature series), this book has an abundance of guidance for correct essay (persuasive) and argument construction plus extensive sections on mechanics and usage.

    The author maintains that one of the single most important intellectual skills in an undergraduate education is learning to write an essay that clearly and convincingly presents a point of view. Students entering high school have usually written who (personal/autobiographical) or what (objective/factual) papers. High school is the time to focus on the abstract/universal papers to master the art of the why paper in a logical and compelling way. The first half of this handbook provides a step-by-step guide to arguments taking the student from simple first principles through defining key terms, deductive/inductive arguments, organization and paragraph structure. Multiple examples illustrate the covered skills.

    The second half of the handbook is devoted to usage and style and provides systematic coverage of sentence construction, word usage, punctuation, reference citing (MLA and APA), bibliographies and paper formats.

    Whether using one of the authors literature courses or completing any other high school writing assignment, this book will be useful and put to use. 420 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Have you ever stopped to realize that a comprehensive understanding of the earth, its structure, and its inhabitants are a necessary foundation for interacting meaningfully with our increasingly global-minded world? Taking an overview approach, the North Star Geography course covers geography skills (reading maps, using geographic tools, cartography, surveying, and navigation), physical geography (geology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, hydrology, and astronomy), and human geography (sociology, culture, religion, transportation, agriculture, government, and economics). Bright Ideas Press and world geography – what a great idea! Student Reader plus Companion Guide CD-ROM (activities: maps, hands-on, research options, quizzes/tests) – what a great idea! Quality content, Biblical worldview, and user-friendliness all rolled up into one package – what a great idea!

    Obviously, the Student Reader is the heart of the course. Each of the sixteen lessons provides 15-20 pages of reading text, full-color illustrations, photos, sidebar articles, and maps. Lessons are divided into teaching segments which are both highly readable and interesting. The organization lends itself to flexibility, and the course could be done over one year (two weeks per lesson), two years (four weeks per lesson), or even one semester (one week per lesson – a bare bones approach). Vocabulary words are in bold with definitions provided in the glossary at the end of the text. The Reader concludes with a reference list that provides options for further study.

    The accompanying Companion Guide CD-ROM (pdf files) provides both basic and "extra" activities in addition to all content from the Reader. It's these pdf files that will allow you to tailor the course for high school, for junior high, or for a combination of ages. Families may make photocopies or print pages as needed, but classrooms and co-ops should contact the publisher for a multiple-use license. Depending on the course time-frame you choose, you will probably have to do some selection of activities, as there is a wealth provided.

    • • Hands-On Activities – there is lots of variety here – some short and simple, some more involved. Materials lists are provided when necessary (and tend to be easy-to-get items).
    • • Build Your Own Atlas – there's a segment for each lesson that includes labeling outline maps, completing fact files, and creating a set of political, physical, and thematic maps. Outline maps are provided but a good atlas as a reference is helpful (i.e. Wondermaps or Atlas of World Geography).
    • • Note-Taking Pages – each lesson has a set of 10 questions taken from the text that serve as lesson review and a study guide for the quizzes.
    • • Memorization Lists – a list of 198 countries, 70 regions and physical features to learn – roughly 16 items per lesson.
    • • Research Questions – a set of questions for each continent which encourage the student to conduct his own research (answers included).
    • • Quizzes and Tests – quizzes for each lesson (based on note-taking questions and map work). A final exam includes questions taken from all 16 of the lessons (answer keys and grading rubrics included).
    • • Graphic Organizers - can be used for all types of studies – world/continent, country, culture, regional geography, and government fact files.

    Homeschool geography courses have tended to be research frameworks that can be used by multi-age students and over several years. While having lots of advantages for families they require planning, preparation, and, often, outside resources. North Star takes a different approach providing a very solid base of textual information but giving lots of options for additional activities and research. It provides all necessary forms and pages, requiring only a good world atlas to accompany the course. ~ Janice

    From America's Math Teacher, Richard W. Fisher, comes a very straightforward and logical approach to mastering algebraic concepts. From the beginning of the book to the end, each lesson builds on previous knowledge in a very 'no-nonsense' fashion. The book is divided into chapters – tools for algebra, solving equations, graphing and analyzing linear equations, solving and graphing inequalities, systems of linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, rational expressions, radical expressions and geometry, quadratic equations, and algebra word problems. Every chapter is divided into lessons, and every lesson is one to two pages in length and follows the same format – introduction and explanation, helpful hints, examples, written exercises, review. There is even a final exam to assess the student's understanding. A reference section at the back of the book includes lists of formulas, symbols, multiplication table, prime numbers, squares and roots, fraction/decimal equivalents, and an answer key (not solutions).

    The author offers 6 steps to using this book so it will be the most effective. 1) Read the introduction that contains essential information on the topic and includes important terms and definitions and explanations. 2) Read the 'helpful hints' section that offers tips and shortcuts. 3) Go through the examples by writing them out on your own paper, which will aid in better understanding. 4) Work the exercises, and refer back to the 'helpful hints' as needed. 5) Complete the review section. 6) Correct your work. Seems pretty easy!

    The bonus for this book is the free online video lessons. Mr. Fisher, America's Math Teacher, will narrate students through the concept of each lesson as writing appears on a white board. He works through some examples (different from those found in the book) using visual prompts and making suggestions for ways to remember. He suggests that the student watch the video lesson before going to the book lesson. These short concise self-contained lessons can change the world of algebra for your student. 280 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    From the author of Latin Centered Curriculum (Memoria Press), this comprehensive K-12 resource for memorization, copywork, and dictation provides a vast array of memorization material in all academic areas, as well as Latin and Greek. Weighing in at a hefty 450 plus pages, this book provides you ample choices for memory work, and has been designed for use with any classical curriculum or simply as a handy reference for home or school. At first glance, the sheer size of this book appears to be overwhelming. However, the author reminds us this book has been created to provide 13 years worth of memorization options and we simply integrate what we feel is the best selection.

    Beginning with the importance of memorizing, this detailed book takes you through the steps of how to memorize and includes general principles to make memory work easier; you are then set free to select memorization selections from a vast array of subject areas. Read on for more details! The Latin chapter is divided into six parts: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; Prayers; and Hymns and Carols. The first three sections contain mostly secular material, while the last three are religious. The Greek chapter is divided into five sections: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; and Prayers and Hymns. These selections are drawn from both classical and ecclesiastical Greek, and the author has also included some background information on Easter Christian traditions. Translations are provided throughout. The Arithmetic and Mathematics chapter includes an extensive resource selection, including (but not limited to): addition/subtraction fact families, properties and orders, prime numbers, multiplication table, Euclid's Definitions and Common Notions, and the Pythagorean Theorem. The Grammar and Composition chapter is designed to support the study of classical languages and to reinforce principles taught in your individual writing program. It includes grammar rhymes, grammar rules, and 100 commonly misspelled words. The Literature chapter contains five sections: Literary facts and lists; Sayings, Proverbs, and Famous Quotations, Teaching Rhymes, Poetry and dramatic speeches from Shakespeare's plays. The Religion chapter contains six sections: Scripture, Prayers, Catechism, Poetry, Hymns and Carols. Using the King James Version of the Bible, the religious selections include material drawn from the Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions. The Geography chapter contains a large number of lists from both a World and US Geography perspective. The World History chapter covers events and personalities from around the globe, with the emphasis on those topics of enduring importance. Please note: dating encompasses an old earth perspective, dating back to 35,000 BC. The United States History and Civics chapter stresses key dates in American history, as well as the founding documents of our nation. Patriotic songs, verse and oratory are also included. The Natural Sciences chapter brings together lists and mnemonics for basic information in the natural sciences and is written primarily for elementary and middle school. It is best if the child memorizes material in this chapter, as it is encountered in their course of studies in the science curriculum of your choice. Extensive reference charts are found at the end of the book. These are meant for quick reference in Latin and Greek and are not meant to replace a Latin or Greek curriculum. They are, however, a good basis for Latin and Greek recitation.

    As you can see, this extensive resource book provides ample opportunities for memorization success. I was impressed with the extensive selection in each academic area, and believe this truly will be a valuable resource for families who desire to incorporate memorization from the classical perspective. 450 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Ready for flashcards that are more "flashy"? This electronic version of the traditional "triangle" flash card gives your student a portable practice device for addition/subtraction and multiplication/division. No more cards falling all over the couch or the floor of the car. The device has three windows. In the case of multiplication/division, for example, the two lower windows are for the factors and the window at the top is for the product of the multiplication. One of those windows will be blank, and your student will key in the answer using the numeric keypad. As you can tell, if a factor is missing, the student will think in terms of division. If the product is missing, that's a multiplication problem. The student switches at will between addition/subtraction and multiplication/division, and has three skill levels from which to choose. This handheld-size device (each side measures 4") uses 3 AAA batteries, not included. ~ Caryl

    Instead of using several different map skills books, this volume provides all you need for several years! It uses a building approach, starting with mapping simple floor plans in the first section. In it, students learn and map small areas, then learn about map symbols, directions and compass rose, map scales, and look at some different types of maps. Additional sections add skills and experience with both reading and construction of maps. A U.S. Geography section presents concepts of boundaries and rivers and work with political, physical, product and climate maps. Then, the United States is explored by region and, within region, state. A page is devoted to each state, ideal for use with state studies and memorization of states and capitals. Students complete their study of the Western Hemisphere with map work encompassing Canada, Mexico, Central and South America. Grid maps are given their own small section before the final Global Geography section where students encounter continents and oceans, hemispheres, latitude and longitude and time zones. An answer key and a final review wraps up this colorful volume. 352 pgs.

       The Bible can be overwhelming, especially for new believers or those just starting out and trying to understand. This book tells 120 key stories (chronologically) accompanied by 134 prints of realistic art and 107 informational graphics and maps. Each story is two pages – the first page is a retelling of the story marked with the book and chapter reference, ‘Words to Remember’ is a memory verse from the ESV, and the second page is a picture or map that complements the story. In cases where there is a picture, two or three ‘Did You Know’ questions offer additional information about the history or culture or a reference to the meaning of certain words. Periodically, readers will find a two-page spread that offers informational graphics about a book of the Bible, a Bible character, an event, etc. – the kings of Judah and Israel, story of Jonah, and the book of Amos, just to name a few. The visuals give clarity to topics that might be confusing. This book is not intended to be a complete retelling of the Bible; several of the New Testament books are presented with just the two-page informational graphic pages. The topical index makes it easier to refer to specific stories.

      If you know someone who needs a simpler explanation of Bible content, the pictures and graphics found in this book will be very helpful. It could also be used as your daily family Bible reading, since it should have an appeal to multiple learning styles and age groups. 368 pages, pb. ~ Donna

    A little different from the other grade-specific Core Skills books, this one offers a comprehensive math review of all topics up to and including pre-algebra. With a bit of instruction coupled with abundant guided examples and practice, this course will serve as a middle school math refresher. Starting with a “preview” (i.e. pre-test) and then the basics (whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percents), the book also covers algebra, geometry, measurement, ratios and probability with units and sometimes multiple units on each. Within each unit there is a progression from basic to complex. For instance, one of the units on fractions progresses from proper fractions through improper fractions, mixed numbers, equivalents, simplifying, least common denominators and mixed numbers, ending with problem solving strategies. The guided practice on each topic would not be enough to learn the topic “from scratch” but is plenty for a comprehensive review which will give a good indication of any areas that need additional work. There are unit reviews plus a final review with a complete answer key for all practice and review problems. 256 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    On the left of each two-page spread is a Bible story; a half-page, full-color illustration; and a key Scripture memory verse (ESV). And on the right you’ll find a themed devotion, “Talk about it” questions for families to discuss and a short prayer. You can take different approaches in using this book with your family. You could read just the Bible story, just the devotional, or read both as a devotional. Each are geared to help train in Godliness. The devotionals are listed in multiple ways so you can gear the devotional to current family situations. There is a typical table of contents for both Bible stories and devotionals, but also listings of “Devotionals that Answer Questions,” (described by the questions each one answers) and “Devotionals for Special Times” (such as Easter, Confirmation, or Before going to Bed).

    The author of Daily Grammar Practice brings us this elementary composition program that balances structure and individualization. The program's distinctive feature is the Burnette Writing Process, which implements two key components (focus and reflection) to strengthen students' writing. In each assignment, the teacher guides the student to focus and then reflect on specific writing skills. Assignments vary based on the student's writing level: each of the 36 writing tasks includes a separate assignment for three different writing levels: A, B, and C. Level A writers are beginner writers; B writers have mastered some of the process, but need practice; and C writers have mastered more skills, but need to strengthen their abilities.

    Focus enables the writer to improve a few skills at a time. Each assignment includes a maximum of 6 focus skills (for Level C students); the author recommends choosing two to three skills for Level A and three to four for Level B. Students hone their abilities on more specific skills within the broader categories of content, organization, style, conventions, and format. Reflection requires students to think about their writing, to understand their thought process as they write and, through rubrics, evaluate their ability to complete the focus tasks.

    The guide's first portion introduces methodology, elaborates on each lesson's skills and explains focus skills and rubrics. The last portion includes sample poetry, graphic organizers and rubrics. In between, the majority of the guide details the 36 different writing tasks and accompanying assignments. Each assignment explains the goal, the intended audience, writing form and procedure, and suggested focus skills. The different composition tasks encompass descriptive, expository, analytical and creative writing, and use such forms as letters, narration, comparison and contrast, persuasive, play writing and fantasy.

    Use with one student as he/she works through multiple skill levels or simultaneously for multiple ages. In writing, self-evaluation is a difficult but necessary skill, and this text allows the teacher to guide students to becoming stronger and more self-aware writers. 8.5" x 11", copyright pages are reproducible for single classroom, spiral bound, 153pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Does your child struggle with retaining math facts or forget how to perform basic math computations? Do they need to use math manipulatives for basic math facts, even into their middle school years? With the majority of math curricula written for the left-brain learners who easily understand the drill-based math facts taught through black and white images, what is a parent to do with a child who learns differently and is not able to grasp math as traditionally taught? This DVD may provide the key to defeating frustration and overcoming forgetfulness! Beginning with a brief overview of right and left-brain learning as it applies to mathematics, Dianne Craft shares effective strategies to help struggling learners retain math facts and processes. While recommendations for math curricula workbooks are offered, these techniques would work with most math programs that you are currently using-with just a bit of tweaking! Strategies to teach addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, Algebra (order of operations), fractions and multiplication by 3 digits are included. This totally different teaching method will retrain the “non-math” brain into a math sponge, giving your child confidence and skills for math success! While not part of the Right Brained Math Series from Child First Publications, this DVD could be a vital forerunner to that series, providing parents and teachers a foundational understanding of right brain leaners and their distinctive needs. Part of the “Struggling Learner Seminar” series. DVD runs approximately 40 minutes. ~ Deanne

    There are plenty of products exposing the flaws of evolutionary theory, but most of them are written for high school and adults. This text from Apologetics Press is written for the middle school crowd, but not watered down. The authors, Kyle Butt and Eric Lyons, explain the evidence through topics from origins of the universe, how did life get here, what is evolution, the design of the human body and other creatures found in the animal kingdom, the fossil record, radiometric dating and assumptions about the age of the earth, dinosaurs, misconceptions about evolution of animals and of man, to scientists who believed in the Biblical creation. Each of the ten chapters is chock full of photos and illustrations in full color, scriptural support, and ends with a chapter review with fill-in-the-blank, true/false, short answer, and multiple choice questions on the chapter content. This text would be a great study to do before students move on to high school; then keep as a reference book to address specific topics that arise. This text is very affordable and puts apologetics within the grasp of your younger students. An answer key is a free download at the publisher's website - (http://www.apologeticspress.org/user_images/catalog/images/tbtans.pdf) 181 pgs. ~ Donna

    Is there a place for special needs children within the world of classical education? I've often wondered. It's so language intensive and language is often an issue. It's also rigorous and academically advanced and that seems unattainable. But it's also highly structured and brain-building. And that's the key. Cheryl Swope proved with her own children, adopted twins with multiple delays and issues, that not only is there a place, but it's the very best place. Simply Classical is more than their story – even though it's a beautiful one filled with hard work, daily sacrifices, heartbreak and disappointment, and then, ultimately, with the magnificent realization of what has been accomplished step by agonizing step. Simply Classical is a road map through a classical, Christian educational journey for children who face special challenges. Employing the basic principles of classical education – the three arts of language (grammar, logic, and rhetoric) and the four arts of mathematics (arithmetic, music theory, geometry, and astronomy), she built a disciplined plan for her children who had very different challenges and now has turned her efforts toward sharing what she has learned with others. This is a wonderful resource for the homeschooling parent of autistic or other special learners. It looks at the challenges faced by special needs children and offers insights for success in education and social skills. Part personal story and part practical resource providing curricula recommendations, book lists, sample schedules, tips on making modifications to meet a child's needs, mini-screening checklists, developmental milestones, informal and formal testing as well as others' stories. The book concludes with a thorough appendix of outside resources. 276 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
