     Self-described as Charlotte Mason-flavored, this is language arts curriculum with a Biblical emphasis. As a starting place for each weekly lesson, students will read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences. Each week follows the same pattern of activities: Day 1, read the weekly story; Days 2-3, learn topics in writing, grammar and punctuation; Day 4, write responses to a prompt (alternating between picture study, poetry and a Psalm); and Day 5, work on spelling and vocabulary and build a dictionary. Brief assessments are provided quarterly. The fourth quarter is designed for review. Starting with Level 2, students are introduced to punctuation, grammar & writing. students will learn about nouns, compound words, subjects/predicates; possessive nouns; combining sentences; commas; interjections; action verbs; homophones; synonyms/antonyms and specific verbs such as be, has and see and pronouns like this and that. Biblical themes and assignments (such as memorizing verses from 1 Corinthians 13 alongside Micah and Claire) are used throughout. Level 3 will further strengthen previous reading, observation and communication skills, and begin writing paragraphs. Level 4 (expected late 2018) will strengthen previous skills and add study in noun types, verb tenses, mechanics and write compositions.

      This is a combined student and teacher consumable book. On the student pages, teacher notes are highlighted and kept minimal. While designed for you and the student to work along together, this text provides additional direction in the front matter and in the Teacher’s Aid section (about 100 pgs) in the back. This section includes dictionary pages to copy (or you can print off from the publisher’s web site); optional games to practice different language skills; spelling practice ideas; sight words alphabet practice; copywork practice; and grammar study sheets. You’ll want to provide more reading practice opportunities: a template to record these and a recommended Master Books reading list is included. Scriptures are from the NASB. Non-reproducible, consumable and 3-hole punched.

      Master Books recommends beginning this series after Foundations Phonics and Basic Language Skills. However, to select a starting place, the general expectation is that the student’s skills should be comfortably at grade level (in reading, writing, and in handwriting).

    Take a step up from learning placemats to a lively and colorfully illustrated math tablecloth! Kids can soak up a lot of knowledge from their surroundings, and they will love to explore all the different concepts featured here. Seasons, months, days and hours, weather, shapes, counting by 1's, 5's, and 10's, counting backwards, comparisons, addition and subtraction, greater and less than, patterns, money, and more are illustrated with cute images of animals and objects. Kids can even use ultra-clean washable markers to answer problems if they wish, and the tablecloth wipes clean with a damp cloth and dish soap. The tablecloth is PVC free, made of PEVA with flannel backing, and measures 52" x 72" (fits table sizes 28"x 46" to 44"x 64"). ~ Megan

    At the preschool level, life is school. While structure is necessary, much of learning can be done amidst the regular rhythms of life. This is the premise on which the authors, Kathy and Lesli (home educators themselves) base this wonderful resource. Rather than fit home life into school, school should meld into home life. Nine chapters help you focus on your educational priorities and help you visualize and plan what your learning environment (home) will become. These chapters focus on development, learning through play, building a learning environment, organization and special issues that don’t “fit in the box.” Then you’ll find a treasure trove of almost 80 pages of activities encompassing home activities, science, math, language, art, socio-emotional, gross and fine motor skills. Directions are detailed enough and supplies are fairly minimal. Layered with wonderful, full-color pictures of the authors’ preschoolers, directions, and recipes; and accented with personal notes from each author and wonderful educational quotations. Appendices include activity checklists, resources and detailed directions for making a light or sand table. 204 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    What do you call a unit study designed for the classroom? A ready-to-use interdisciplinary lesson and activity! While designed for the classroom, homeschool families will find the lessons and activities easy to implement at home with children of multiple ages or an excellent resource for a history focused co-op.

    Divided into three units, the 120 lessons immerse students in the history and culture of the United States. Beginning with the thirteen colonies, students will explore New England, the Middle and the Southern colonies before traveling into the Expanding Nation of the Midwest. This second unit covers the Midwest & Great Plains as well as the Mississippi Valley. The final unit traipses through the beckoning west as students explore the Southwest, Northwest and West. Units are formatted similarly and provide lessons in social studies, practical mathematics, language arts, music, art, consumer/family living and physical education. Extension activities are plentiful and include additional food experiences, research projects and reading suggestions.

    The lessons begin with a "For the Teacher" introduction, which provides parent/teachers with material lists and necessary teacher preparations, as well as a list of lesson activity worksheets. These reproducible worksheets vary and include map activities, word searches, fill in the blank outlines/sentences, matching definitions to vocabulary words, craft/art lessons, etc. Answers are provided as necessary. Art projects and other hands-on activities utilize common, easy-to-find items. Folk tales and literature suggestions abound and provide exposure to a wide range of options to enhance the language arts portion of the study. Some of the folk tales have been adapted and are included within the pages of this comprehensive resource, along with other historical information for the student.

    Let me share from Unit 2, Getting to Know the Southwest. Students begin with a map of the Southwest and are called upon to locate and label Arizona, New Mexico and Texas along with their capitals. They also locate the Gulf of Mexico and Mexico. The next lesson covers the people of the Southwest, introducing them by name along with a one-sentence summary; a word search puzzle follows and then students are asked to write a report on one of the famous people from this region. A reproducible outline is provided to guide their research. A "Life in Early Texas" lesson follows. In this lesson, students are given a word bank and asked to "fill in the blanks" to complete the reading on Texas in the 1800s and today. Following this concise historical view, an assignment is given to plan a trip to the Southwest. The teacher prep notes recommend students make use of travel agency pamphlets and books, but it may be easier for students to discover this information on the internet. Following the "trip" to the Southwest, a worksheet of various story problems is given with the focus of determining the costs for a family of four to travel to San Antonio. Vocabulary, folk-tales, literature, pastimes and games, music suggestions, craft projects, and authentic recipes and dining activities conclude the Southwest study. Helpful information in the back of the book includes a glossary of terms and summary of the fifty states including the date of union entry, capital and largest city.

    As with any interdisciplinary study, you will want to add a comprehensive math curriculum at grade level along with language arts topics like spelling and grammar. Correlated vocabulary words are included as are writing assignments, although you may wish to provide writing instruction for students who may be weak in composition. You will need to add science as it is not covered within the text. An excellent way to immerse children in the culture of the lower 48 states. As I perused the abundance of lessons, I was quickly impressed with the content and easily understood why it is a recommended resource for the Tapestry of Grace curriculum. 365 pgs. Spiral bound, reproducible for classroom use. ~Deanne
