    Denise Eide passionately believes that mastery of English (literacy) could be greatly simplified by:

    Understanding that there is a method behind the madness; English is systematic (at least 98% of the time)

    Learning and embracing the rules of this system

    And here I thought this was common knowledge. Now I understand why Spelling is one of our largest-selling areas. I was not aware that, according to the National Report Card, 34% of fourth graders cannot read and 68% are below proficient. Apparently, this has gone on for some time since 48% of all adults are also not proficient readers, according to the same report. The author also bemoans the fact that "intensive phonics is saved almost exclusively for students who struggle". Written in 2011, this book is not an outdated tome from the sight-reading era. Apparently, this is the current state of affairs in the country at large. The author firmly believes that the cause of the problem is that the structure, the logic, of English is not understood or taught. This not only hinders reading, writing, and spelling skills, but results in discouraged children who become illiterate adults. In writing this book, the author hoped to demystify the English system for parents and teachers, helping them turn the situation around in our nation. I think she has succeeded in this volume. Her presentation is comprehensive, clear, and well-organized. Helpful charts and tables punctate the concise text, lending additional structure and simplification to the narrative. A list of tables in the front helps you find specific information quickly. The book concludes with appendices that sum up most of the material in lists or charts providing a handy, ongoing reference.

    While I hope most homeschoolers have used or are using an intensive phonics program, this book would be an excellent refresher and reference. If you are one of the many homeschoolers whose children were taught to read in the public school system, you need to get this book and read it. Then you need to teach the rules of the English system to your children. If your children are past the phonics stage, but still having trouble with reading or spelling, this book will help you back up, understand the system, and get your children back on track. And, if you are just starting to teach your children to read, you will want to read this book first. Then, for more direct teaching materials, see the Logic of English program from Pedia Learning, inspired by this volume.

    Base your schooling on the Little House series! Written by a Christian homeschooler specifically for homeschoolers, this hefty book will help you get the most out of these beloved books. Like KONOS, there are so many activities to choose from, you may want to pick and choose or, as one mother suggests, use different ones with different children according to their interests. Each of the nine Little House books is a different unit focusing on themes found in that book such as: the Postal Service, Railroads, Plants & Animals, 1800's American History, Courtship & Dating, Photosynthesis & Uses of Plants, Food Chains, etc.

    Using Little House on the Praire Books to reinforce core subjects.

    Additionally, each unit covers virtually all subject areas (history, science, health, nutrition, practical skills, literature, writing, geography, Bible, character building, crafts and more). The nine units are divided into four weeks each, so that the entire resource can be completed in a year, although you may choose to make it last for two by slightly altering the suggested daily schedule. There are four lessons given for each of the four weeks, with the fifth day left open as a "catch up" day. A Weekly Planning guide highlights resources and materials to be gathered ahead of time and helps direct the focus of the study.

    Providing an introduction to a variety of essential research tools, this guide gently walks students through the dictionary, encyclopedia, atlas, concordance and the telephone book. Each lesson offers great flexibility for the homeschooling family, as the lessons are not written in daily format. Each section begins with background information on the studied reference book and includes instructions on how to use it. The following student pages provide a variety of activities specific to the reference studied. Here is an example of one portion of the Encyclopedia lesson: The student reads the instruction on using an encyclopedia. They are asked to look up "Samuel Adams" and read about his life and answer the following questions: What year was he born? Who was his famous cousin? What college did he graduate from in 1740? Internet research tools are discussed, although the author emphasizes the importance of using research books. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible is recommended and Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary is suggested (other dictionaries will work). Pb. 26 pgs. Non-reproducible. ~ Deanne
