      Based on an ancient Greek memory technique, this game teaches players how to visualize and organize information for better recall. Players create silly stories to help them remember in which room of the memory palace game board they place face-down animal tokens (e.g the smiling shark brushed his teeth in the bathroom). Everyone works as a team to go back through the board and use the memory palace technique to name each token before turning them over. If players forget about the memory monster tokens and reveal them by mistake, then the game starts over. 2-4 players, 15 minutes

    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

They can paste in pictures, draw and doodle to their hearts content, and write down things like “the world today,” “what’s hot and what’s not,” and “an e-mail to the future”. This yearbook is a great creative outlet for your children, and it is bound to become a treasured keepsake for them to look back on when they are older! – elise

    Depending on your definition of "lesson plans," these may seem more like a checklist to you, but they do provide just that little bit of structure that can assure you that you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. A brief half-page of teacher's notes precede the weekly checklists. These indicate how/when the teacher should interject into the reading, how to handle the comprehension questions, and the basics of the map activities. Then for each week, there's a checklist for indicating completion of reading the story, the workbook and memory verse, and the quizzes, reviews, and tests. In typical Memoria Press fashion, these are straight to the point yet helpful. 7 pgs, comb-binding ~ Janice

    This book offers help and encouragement to build a habit of memorizing Scripture. This author allows you to choose the Scripture; the book focuses on key methods of memorizing using games and activities, as well as lesson plans for an intensive six-week memorization program. The book starts by explaining the benefits of memorization: for praying, allowing the Spirit to speak, and building faith. The Keys and Methods to memorizing are diverse and helpful: how to start, learn by chunks, learn with pictures, learn by singing, etc. Sometimes the included games aid in memorization; sometimes they initiate or trigger the memory time in a group of students (the winner of this game will lead the group in Scripture memory, for example). The book contains a few black & white photos here and there and provides plenty of note taking space in each chapter. 92 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    I've been waiting for this book for awhile – and I suspect there are others waiting right there with me. History of the Ancient World gave us a sequel to Story of the World for older readers but left us with the need to design our own curriculum and study materials. This is so much better! Now History of the Ancient World can function as a stand-alone high school (or middle school if your child is ready) history/geography course.

    There is a set of exercises for each chapter. Some sections – Who, What, Where and Comprehension – are answered in one or two complete sentences and can be done "open-book." The Critical Thinking section (not done open book) requires the student to produce a brief written reflection on the ideas presented in the chapter. The student is helped in this by preliminary exercises. The fourth section – Map Work (not included with every chapter) – asks the student to go through a carefully structured set of steps – tracing repeatedly, then copying while looking at the book, and finally, reproducing from memory. [All needed maps are provided in the back of the book. Map Work will require black pencils, colored pencils, and large amounts of tracing paper.]

    The set of 85 worksheets (reproducible for families) are in the back third of the book. The front third? Well, I guess you would call it the answer key, but it feels like more. Each item/question to be identified or answered is specifically referenced to the text (by page and paragraph number). Sample answers are given for each item including the essay questions. That's it! There are no lesson plans or additional information or teacher helps - just what you need to provide a strong history course. Although there are no quarterly or final tests, these would be easy to compile based on the information provided here. 533 pgs, pb. Medieval – 832 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    Memories of sifting through a box full of recipe cards to find the one I needed prompted me to buy a blank, spiral-bound journal for my own recipe collection. This recipe journal takes that idea to a classier level. This black hardcover spiral-bound book measures 4 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 1", lies flat, and takes up little space. Helpful cooking tips such as measurement and temperature equivalents, storage and freezer information, emergency substitutions, and even wine pairings are included in the front. Tabs down the right side of the journal group the recipes pages by brunch, appetizers, sandwiches, side dishes, main courses, breads and baking, desserts, beverages, holidays and parties, and more recipes. There's room for 10 recipes in each section. Each category starts on a right-hand "contents" page, so you can write the names and page numbers of each recipe in that section. Each recipe gets a two-page spread, with the recipe name, serving size, cook time, and ingredients list on the right page and the directions on the left. The bottom of the pages hold room for notes/substitutions, wine pairings, difficulty level and overall rating. The spaces for ingredients and directions are ample; I don't think you'll run out of space for even your most complicated recipes! Pages at the back offer room to write in names, page numbers, or website url's of favorite recipes from online or cookbooks. The inside back cover houses a pocket for any clipped recipes that aren't "tried and true" enough to be written in just yet, or those old recipe cards in grandmother's handwriting. - Steph

    As a busy homeschool mom, my desire to journal was fraught with best intentions that never became reality. Blank pages, dated journals, and even memory-focused journals gathered dust as they sat neglected on the shelf. I wish someone had introduced me to the concept of "guilt free" journaling all those years ago. I may have actually enjoyed journaling success! Beginning with a letter to "Busy Mom" and journaling tips for busy moms, permission is given to journal in a way that reflects your current season of life, whether that means daily journaling or a monthly effort. Moms seeking to be more consistent in journaling will find the included realistic tips a breath of fresh air. "Scriptural Promises for Busy Moms" offers encouragement to the stressed out mom who's in need of a special touch. The journal provides lined pages which invite you to share "words along the way" that are defined by you, the journalist - prayer requests, favorite scriptures, and highlights of the day, struggles and success stories. A simple pastel flower adds a muted background to the pages. Give yourself permission to journal, in your own way, basking in the encouragement poured out in these pages from the popular and busy homeschool mom Heidi St. John. Spiral bound. ~Deanne

      This book drew me in with the title and held me with its reality and encouragement. In the 19th century, women began to do more, serving in daring ways with noble purpose to achieve amazing things for God. The author blends information from personal memories and intimate friend accounts into narratives that bring the accounts of risk-taking, God emboldened women to life. Although you may not know their names, you or those around you have most definitely been affected by the lives and work of either Fanny Crosby, Emeline Dryer, Nancy McCormick, Sarah Dunn Clarke, Amanda Smith, Virginia Asher, Evangeline Booth or Mary McCleod Bethune. Driven by a desire to serve God, these women can still inspire us to live lives that are timeless, godly fierce, persistent and faithful. These are women who changed history. You’ll be drawn in and inspired by how God used ordinary lives in amazing ways. Also included are 16 pages of period photos, a discussion question section with 3 questions for each chapter, acknowledgements and notes. This Moody Press book is 5 ¼” x 7 ½”, 206 pp and sc. ~ Ruth

      I come from a family of cooks and I have a collection of many of their recipes. Our Family Recipes Journal is a wonderful way for you to write your recipes and pass them on to family members. This 6” x 8” book is divided into appetizers, soups/salads/sandwiches, side dishes, main courses, desserts, beverages, and more recipes, with room for 10 of each type. Between each section is a clever quote like this one by Calvin Trillin (American journalist), “The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.” At the beginning of each section is an index page for making a list of recipes found there, and each recipe is afforded 2 pages with a place to write the title, number of servings, prep time, the source of the recipe, the ingredients and instructions, and wraps up with the writer telling why this recipe is special. Helpful information is found in the first 10 pages of the book, such as: measurement equivalents, storage tips, cooking hints, microwave use, and more. A pocket inside the back cover offers space for recipe cards, clippings, etc. Give the gift of food that can last for generations!! 144 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

    So, you've tried the "conventional" methods of helping your child memorize his tables. Maybe you've even tried singing the tables, but he wasn't an auditory learner. Drills fall flat, because you have to memorize the tables before you can succeed. Even after practice, practice, practice, you're wondering if they'll ever really stick. Well, here's a novel approach - actually, more of a "short story" approach. Judy Liautaud has come up with some cute, and memorable, little stories to help fix these facts finally in the mind's eye, using a visual-memory-association technique that just may work for your little multiplier. Numbers become characters or objects in visuals and storylines in which the product is an integral part. Yeah, some of them are silly - all the better to remember them by. You know, I almost wrote a book like this after teaching the twins their tables. We used similar mnemonic devices and silly sayings like "76 trombones in the big parade....and 42 clowns!" and "He licks (six) his plate (eight) before he ate (forty-eight)" and a football game tied 7 to 7 until the 49ers got a last-minute touchdown. Okay, they're goofy, but they work! These were our particular problem products, but Judy's got all the tables covered. This activity book contains all of the "tricks" and stories to get your child through the tables, plus "Make Your Own Posters" and "Make Your Own Flashcards" sections so your student can also create his own helpful tools.

    A disastrous volcano is threatening to erupt on the dinosaurs' homeland. Work together to get the dinos to safety before it does! The game begins with 12 fern tokens face down in three different terrain areas. There are three desert areas as well, where no tokens are placed. Three dinosaurs on the mainland are in need of rescue, and players collectively try to get them to Dinosaur Island. To give a dinosaur asylum, a fern token matching a dinosaur must be flipped over when the dino is walking through the habitat the token is in. A die is rolled each turn. If a volcano is rolled be-ware! You must add a piece to the volcano. When all five pieces have been added, it's gonna blow! If a number is rolled, a dinosaur piece may be moved that number of spaces in either direction on the board. Then a player flips over a token of their choice. If the token does not match a dinosaur currently walking through the token's terrain, it is flipped back over. Try to remember what has been revealed and where, but watch out for the T-Rex token! If this token is revealed, dinosaurs are returned to their starting positions. Everyone shares game pieces, and any player can aid the player whose turn it is in remembering which tokens are where. This game fosters cooperation, memory, and basic counting. For 2-4 players. Game time: 10 minutes.

    This is Henry Chadwick's translation, from the original Latin into English, of Saint Augustine's classic, Confessions. Near the close of the 4th century, shortly after his ordination as Bishop of Hippo Regius, Augustine began writing his autobiography, which comprises the first nine "books" of this work, followed by a book on memory and the subconscious, one on time and eternity, then a reconciliation of Plato and Christianity on the subject of Creation, and finally an allegory of the first chapter of Gensis to discuss the Church and sacraments. There is much to be learned here about the transition from a fully secular lifestyle, through conversion to a faith in Jesus Christ and beyond. ~ Tom
