    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

    What do you do if you can't fix a broken doughnut making machine with tons of batter inside? What do you do after there are more than a thousand doughnuts and they just keep coming? What do you do if a rich lady has lost her diamond bracelet and it is inside of one of the doughnuts? If you're Homer Price, then your uncle has left you alone in the middle of this crisis and you have to find a way out of it! But that won't be a problem, because he's handled a skunk, four bank robbers, a 6' ball of string, and helped 100 families find their homes in the new subdivision where all 100 houses look exactly alike. - Melissa

    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.

      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.

    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

    More structured than a nature journal, this "outdoor workbook" is a great tool for families and students who prefer some guided instruction and inspiration as they observe, record, and learn from nature throughout the year. It features a varied, interactive format that kids won't soon get bored with, great forms for observation you can print from the publisher's website, and lots of terrific activity suggestions. The book is divided into three parts: "How to Be a Naturalist," "Learning the Sky," and "Exploring Nature." The first part introduces students to the skills and tools of the naturalist, provides suggestions and forms for setting up a nature journal, offers ideas for observation and appreciation (listing species that live in your neighborhood, making a "nature arrangement" or using observations to write a nature poem), and even includes quick drawing lessons that all culminate in an "field expedition." Because weather plays such a large role in nature, it gets its own chapter, and students are encouraged to draw the sky over different days and times, "read" clouds, draw a weather map, learn why we have seasons, play with shadows, keep a moon journal, discover nocturnal animals, learn three constellations and write a sky poem. The majority of "Exploring Nature" is organized by month (January-December) and provides specific activities and mini-lessons on seasonal nature topics. In March students will learn about the spring equinox, check for life in small pools of water and streams, turn over logs and rocks, draw birds, observe and draw budding twigs, and much more. In August, the focus is on water (the book assumes a family vacation here!) and students learn about the water cycle, find out more about a local stream or river, experiment with water, learn about water creatures, find sources of water in nature, keep a nature journal on vacation, and sleep under the stars. Several forms are provided for all months, including "Nature Notes" and "Nature Quest" forms, and a blank page for a "Picture of the Month." You can print more of these online for ongoing observation projects. Quite a few helpful resources for parents can be found in the appendix, such as safety information, suggestions on how to use nature journals in teaching and how to use the book to meet state curriculum standards, a bibliography (including suggested field guides and books for kids), recommended websites and a list of nature organizations. If you're new to nature studies and looking for some time-saving forms and activity suggestions, this is a resource to consider – and its reasonable enough you may want to get each child their own copy. – Jess

    The author draws on more than 40 years of experience educating middle school children, and her book offers chapters on developing six types of maturity: personal, emotional, physical, social, intellectual, and ethical. Each one opens with a three- to four-paragraph definition and description of that chapter’s topic. Several activities follow that allow children to explore that topic in depth, including quizzes, fill-in-the-blank games, and graphs. The author also gives readers the opportunity to draw pictures, record personal experiences, and more. One activity, “Adult Interview,” provides a list of questions for children to ask parents or guardians about their early lives, including, “What would you change about your childhood?” The fun activity pages are designed so that readers can easily put them down and resume them later without confusion. After this interactive portion, Richards provides a page of “inspirational thoughts” on the topic, encouraging introspection and introducing children to authors, philosophers, and historical figures (including Samuel Johnson, Maya Angelou, Winston Churchill, Pablo Picasso, and many others) that they may encounter later in their education. Richards quotes Mother Teresa in the chapter on ethical maturity: “It is not how much we do, but how much love we put into the doing.” Finally, each chapter concludes with suggestions for goals that children may set for themselves (such as researching a topic of particular interest, keeping a reading log, or reading aloud to preschool children), strategies for accomplishing them, and graphs to chart their progress. The book doesn’t contain any large blocks of text, which will appeal to readers of all levels. The colorful illustrations and graphics enhance the work but seem more appropriate for children at the lower end of the recommended 8-14 age range. Younger teens may say the workbook is “uncool” but secretly like it; tweens, however, will adore it, and even adults may benefit from its recommendations. Richards presents the concepts, which may be new to younger readers, in a clear, easily understood manner without condescension or preaching. With some explanation by adults, the workbook could even function as a read-aloud for younger children. In general, it’s an excellent way to encourage reflection in kids of all ages.

    A well-crafted resource for youngsters and anyone else interested in personal self-improvement.

    Having a close relationship with your daughter is very important. Every child needs someone to look up to, and a girl's mom is the ideal person to be a mentor to her. The better relationship you keep with your daughter, the more comfortable she will be asking you questions and talking to you about her life. This book was created to help bring you and your daughter closer together. Spending time together, of course, is an essential part of having a good relationship, and this book allows you to get together and discuss important aspects of a girl's life and pass along your Christian values. This book covers those hard-to-broach subjects including her changing body, relationships, friendships with boys, and love nature. You and your daughter can discuss the value of good books, life's work, ideals, the Christian life, repentance, trusting Jesus as your savior, and the importance of prayer. It will also help your daughter to develop character traits such as obedience, modesty, truthfulness, and a sunny disposition. The 32 chapters provide discussion questions for each chapter of Beautiful Girlhood, and also incorporate Scripture into your study with Bible activities and life applications. There are also inspirational quotes, writing topics, and blank pages for journaling so that your daughter can record what she has learned to make a cherished keepsake of your time together. ~ Stephanie

    A personal record of major events and people encountered in history. Designed to be a record-keeping place, this book gives the framework; you supply the content. With a classical orientation (The very limited written content includes a quotation from Livy.) and an assumption of Biblical events (no actual Biblical or Christian content), the book consists of pages with lined and blank columns. Each two page spread covers a designated period of time. Each page has two columns. The two center columns of a two-page spread are lined (.25” lines) and the two outer columns are blank (for drawings or attaching pictures). Time designations are in the upper left or right corners (outer corners) of each page. Designated time periods differ per two-page spread and are as follows: 5000 - 2500 BC; then 2500 – 2200 BC. Each two-page spread for the rest of the book is marked as follows: 2200 – 1 BC (100 years each spread – 23 spreads); 1 – 1500 AD (100 years); 1500 – 1800 AD (50 years); 1800 – 1900 AD (20 years); 1900 – 2030 AD (10 years). Interspersed at appropriate places are two-page spreads labeled “In the Beginning;” “Men Begin to Multiply;” “A Flood of Water;” and “In the Fullness of Time.” Eleven pages for maps and notes conclude the book. 50 pgs. pb ~ Janice

    Brady Minton is a blabbermouth. You know the sort, as soon as they learn something new they absolutely must find someone to share it with - and the sooner, the better. So it is that when Brady discovers something fishy is going on up at Drover Hull's cabin, he just can't keep it to himself. He mentions to his father that he suspects Drover of helping runaway slaves, and he immediately regrets it. The look on his father's face tells him he should have kept his mouth shut. Later, when Brady discovers his father's involvement with the Underground Railroad, he wants to help, but he knows his father won't trust him to keep a secret. 223 pgs, pb. -Rachel P.

    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

    Author Nick Needham believes that there is great benefit for Christians who study God's works in the past. He states that "The mighty acts of Christ did not come to a halt soon after the events recorded in the book of Acts. In every century since the first, the Almighty has been at work…" Is that not immensely encouraging? In this book, Mr. Needham explores the church of the Middle Ages: the missionaries and theologians that God raised up, and the spiritual giants and earliest reformers who affected the course of history for God's glory. An academic book in scope, the style and language certainly help to keep this 460-page paperback within reach of the layman. ~ Zach
