    This excellent (but optional) companion to the Apologia Biology course provides a place to keep everything together - module notes and lab reports. The introductory information includes a rubric for grading experiments, grade recording charts, parent notes/student notes, and most importantly, a daily schedule (no need for separate lesson plans). The module notes provide a uniform format for completing chapter notes, the On Your Own and Study Guide questions, and an (optional) modular summary. The consistent format is only one of the reasons you might choose this notebook option. Full-color illustrations (ready for labeling) as well as full-color dissection photographs would be other reasons. 604 pgs. spiral-bound

    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

    This beautifully designed timeline package is designed to accompany the History Odyssey program and includes four timelines: Ancients (6000 BCE - AD 500), Middle Ages (AD 500 - 1600), Early Modern (AD 1600 - 1850) and Modern Times (AD 1850 - Present Day). Although timelines are blank for the student to record events, they are printed in full-color and feature small graphics sprinkled here and there. To keep entries organized, each timeline is divided into seven category sections including: Men & Women, Inventions & Discoveries, Wars & Conflicts, Eras & Dynasties, Art & Literature, General Events, and Treaties/Agreements. Each timeline is five feet in length, features evenly spaced date lines, and can be displayed on a wall or hole-punched and placed into a binder. An optional Prehistory Timeline is also available if you would like to add a segment covering 2 million BCE to 7000 BCE (item #39409) Also, the optional timeline sticker pack is still available (#42770) which features 200 black-and-white stickers of famous people and events from 6000 BCE to present day.

    Mastery of basic math facts is the goal of this 232-page reproducible book. Unlike other books, counting and the tricks taught here are to aid in the memory of the facts, not used as a substitute. You will need a set of math flash cards to implement the program, unless you want to make up your own. You can start at Tier 1 with a beginning student or begin wherever needed with a remedial student or one who already has mastered some of the facts. There are six tiers in the book; beginning with the second, all math facts from previous tiers are reviewed. Each tier section begins with a page of instructions and information for using the worksheets within. For each math "trick," corresponding math fact cards (flashcards) are assigned. Math fact cards should be added to and practiced daily. The tiers are not organized by number sequence (first introducing all +0, then all +1 facts, etc.), but by ease of learning for children. So, in Tier 1, the following "tricks" are presented: Number +1, Doubles (1's, 2's, 5's), Backwards 1; Doubles (1's, 2's, 5's, 3's); Zero; Doubles (1-5); Doubles Subtraction; Right Next to Each Other; Doubles Subtractions; 2 Ladder. In between pages that introduce and model the tricks are review pages, making the program very incremental and "fail-proof". Text is clean, problems nicely spaced, and both horizontal and vertical forms are practiced. A Record-Keeping Checklist allows students to track their progress through the tricks and tiers. The Math Facts Baseline Recorder lists all 81 addition and subtraction facts. As facts are mastered, they are circled on this sheet.

    One of the major selling points of this book for me is that corresponding subtraction facts are introduced right alongside the addition facts, rather than treating the memorization of subtraction facts as a separate skill. In my experience, subtraction and division kind of just come along with memorizing addition and multiplication tables. The other is that it looks like it will accomplish the goal. Too often, kids don't quite master these tables and must resort to counting up, skip counting, using their fingers, or consulting a calculator. This adversely affects their computational speed which will increase their frustration and be a hindrance in timed tests. It's best to "bite the bullet" and commit these to memory. If your child is just starting into math facts, or struggling with them, I highly recommend this volume. Once you finish it, you'll be ready for Five Times Five Is Not Ten by the same author.

      The 4th edition of this Classical favorite updates all product information (eliminating products which are no longer available and substituting new favorites for previous recommendations). The general organization and structure of the book is the same, although a new introduction/overview section on homeschooling high school has been added.

    If you're looking for some real guidance in product/curriculum selection for providing your child with a "classical" education, here it is -- down to the titles of the books and where to find them! These ladies have very clear recommendations for each subject area, both for elementary through eighth grade and high school levels, and they're anxious to share them with you. Written by a mother and her daughter (a second-generation homeschooler), the book provides what many are looking for - concrete, specific recommendations for materials to help in providing an academically rigorous, comprehensive education. Using the trivium as their pattern for education, the book is divided into sections by stage: the Grammar stage (grades K through 4), the Logic stage (grades 5 through 8), and the Rhetoric stage (high school). They wrote this book after coming to the conclusion that "if you want your child to have an excellent education, you need to take charge of it yourself. You don't have to reform your entire school system. All you have to do is teach your own child." And they, very capably, supply you with the when, what, and how of it all from there.

    Jessie Wise taught her daughter, Susan, at home, using the classical method. And Susan, a literature professor at the college of William and Mary in Virginia, uses it with her own three sons. Their experience and knowledge of materials has enabled them to provide us with both a clear explanation of the theory behind a classical education and the means to implement it. Each part of the book begins with a very good description of that stage, how it differs from the others, and what your priorities should be. Then, subject by subject, and grade by grade, they provide much advice about what to teach, schedules for teaching, and many, many curriculum (text and non-text) recommendations. Later sections of the book address socialization, character, time management, grading and record keeping, standardized testing, athletics, dealing with your local school system, getting help (when needed), going to college, working, obtaining materials, and starting in the middle. Appendices list home-education organizations and other resources. Parents who want to provide this type of education will find much support in this volume. Revised in 2009.

    High school record keeping is more important than tracking the progress of your elementary student, so the good folks that brought you the popular Homeschooler’s Journal now have a high school version. As with the Journal, the bulk of the High School Journal is devoted to the weekly lesson layout. Seven columns (vs. six for the Journal) for subjects times five rows for days gives you 40 squares to work with on each pair of pages. These squares contain seven lines for writing details (as opposed to the open format of the squares in the Journal). In the lower right is a handy chart for keeping track of hours spent per subject each week, recordable in quarter-hour increments. Since the method of study (unit studies, structured text, multiple students per subject, etc.) varies from family to family, several examples show various methods of using the weekly lesson layout to your best advantage. The only other change for the High School Journal is a “Grade Record” which replaces the “Test Score Keeper” in the Journal. Daily grades can be recorded in up to 10 subjects for up to 192 days. Other miscellaneous forms in the Journal remain unchanged.

    A word-guessing game in which teams compete against each other’s time until one team is too slow? This could be interesting! In Smash Talk, it’s all about speed: clue givers draw a card with 5 words on it, such as “Carnival”, “Fog”, “Reptile”, “Tube”, and “Tuesday.” Once they press the timer, it’s game on as they rush to give verbal clues for each word to their team! When finished, they press the timer again (though it really is more of a “smash” as the title suggests), and it records their time. The second team must then beat their time. If they do, play continues with team 1, until one team is too slow and they lose the round! The first team to win 3 rounds wins the game. It sounds simple, but can you keep up with the pressure as the time available gets oh-so shorter? For 4+ players.

    A special little journal where your child or student can record book titles, authors, # of pages, date read, draw a little picture and write a few sentences about the story. It has a paper cover, so it is an inexpensive option for a classroom. I think this would be one of those little items parents keep to look back on to see what your student liked at a certain age.

    There's lots of space to keep your records in this over-sized teacher planner. Spiral-bound, measuring 12" x 9.5" and opening to a very wide, horizontally-oriented 24" x 9.5," you'll finally feel like you can keep all your records in one place. There are 45 weekly "spreads" with days of the week down the left-hand column and four, 2," lined columns on the left hand page and four more on the right hand page. The last column on the right-hand page is a place for notes with a weekly quote at the bottom. The nice thing about these planner pages (and the planner, in general) is that it is not dated. That means if you take a week off for a homeschooler's off-season vacation, you don't have to leave blank pages in your planner. One curiosity, though, there's no space to label the columns (i.e. for subjects or students' names, etc.), but there is a small margin at the top you could write in. Oriented to a classroom, there are the expected "extras:" student roster, birthday chart, substitute teacher information/report, standards info (background and websites), seating chart, as well as monthly planning calendars. Pages are white with a slate blue ink color. ~ Janice

    I’m not going to tell you this is THE BEST homeschooling high school book, but it certainly would be a strong contender. Well-known “ultimate” author Debra Bell, who just happens to be a homeschool mom graduate, maintains that “your child’s future begins today.” Then she thoroughly outlines how the two of you can plan and prepare for it. One of the things that I most appreciate about her message is that she doesn’t sugar-coat anything. Starting with the advantages; she also “counts the costs.” Providing step-by-step coverage from middle school through high school, she also tackles record-keeping as well as college admissions and college credit at home. The 100+ pages of appendices include website and online tools, samples (of practically everything), reading lists, and a resource guide. 500 pgs, pb Janice

    It's amazing how quickly my math skills surface when faced with a sale! I can figure any percent off at the drop of a hat, if the hat is 30% off. Now that is putting math to good use in real life! How clever to have a game to practice this most-practical application of percents and fractions. The board features spaces such as 1/3 Markdown or 40% Off and the spinner is color-coded with the object cards to make you draw a clothing, appliance, or furniture card. Each card names an item and shows its regular cost. The object is for players to correctly figure the sale price, make wise purchases, and keep accurate records of transactions. Think of all the math being practiced here: fractions, percents, sale terminology, subtraction, making change, calculator skills (for banker, at least), and learning that less % off on more expensive items may mean more savings than a higher percent off on cheaper items. The winner is the person who saves the most money on their items and whose records are 100% accurate. You will need 2-4 players, plus a banker. Recommended for ages 10+, I think your high schoolers may even enjoy this one! Includes board, play money, cards, and game pieces as well as record sheets where players write down their items with regular price, discount %, amount saved and the sale price. Considering we are in the days of debit cards and online banking, learning how to keep records of spending is not something all kids learn in school. Build in some good financial habits now while practicing useful math! ~Sara

There is also space to attach a photo and list where the student attended each grade, which is helpful if your student attended another school in previous years. On the inside of the front cover, there are spaces to record graduation data, extracurricular activities, and testing records. The inside of the back cover is about an inch taller than the front and allows you to write your student's name so you can see it easily even if the file is in a drawer. Then, each grade is broken down into blank charts with spaces for eight subjects and their final grades. The charts for grades 1-8 are in the inside back cover, while the charts for high school are continued on the backside. Underneath the high school charts are places to record their cumulative GPA and total credits. This file helps you easily check your students records in a glance, keeps them all in one place, and can also hold relevant papers and documents.

    We have had numerous requests for a homeschool report card, and your pleas have been heard. This simple report card is printed on sturdy grayish cardstock and folded in half. On the front, there is a picture of an apple; blanks to record the student's name, grade and school year; and the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15. When you turn the cover to view the inside of the report card, there is an academic progress chart on the left hand side and a character development chart on the right. The academic progress chart lists 8 subject areas (Bible, reading, mathematics, English, spelling, penmanship, science, and history/geography) and three blank spaces to record additional studies. To the right of each subject are four blank boxes for you to record the grades earned in that subject each quarter of the year. Below the chart is a grading scale. The character development chart is very similar, except for instead of school subjects it lists personality traits (courteous, dependable, cooperative, truthful, willing attitude, hard working, kind, and appreciative.) Below this chart is an explanation of the symbols used to "grade" their character - A =Achieved, I = Improving Steadily, and M = Making Some Progress. The backside of the card is blank aside from a short sentence with blanks in the appropriate places stating that [name of student] has been promoted to the [?] grade under supervision of [Parent's signature]. - Melissa

    If you need some help getting organized, but want more flexibility than a standard lesson-plan book provides, read on! This journal combines lesson planner with other helpful forms uniquely suited to homeschooling. Intended as a permanent record, the spiral-bound volume can be filed away with your children’s work as a lasting reference to your school year. The first few pages contain helpful instructions for use and 2-year calendar to aid in planning. A“Linear Schedule of Home Schooling Events” - your year-at-a-glance summary of school-related activities - is followed by a page of yearly requirements like dental exams, test dates, home schooling conventions, etc. A two-sided page for recording by-subject test scores follows. The next several pages are devoted to recording information pertinent to planning field trips, including goals for learning. The heart of the organizer is a generous 200-day daily subject log. Recording boxes are ample and each page helpfully includes a lined, wide “NOTES:” column which allows for detailed recording of particulars on field trips, special activities, journal entries, whatever. At the end of the planner are 13 full pages of library list forms, allowing you to keep a record of books read or books that you hope to locate for use in unit studies. Reasonably priced, this journal could be a wonderful investment in tracking and organizing your school year.
