    Another Newbery Award (1994) winner from the author of Number the Stars. A remarkable coming-of-age story about a young man who overcomes his society. Set in a "utopian" or "dystopian" (depending on your point of view!) society which is extremely regulated and controlled, Jonas is selected for the very special job of becoming the Receiver of Memory in this story about a community of the future. When Jonas realizes, however, what has been lost and what the price of conformity is, he makes a daring decision that will forever change his life. Our whole family read and discussed this book, finding it an excellent starting point for frank discussion of individuality and responsibility vs. security and homogeneity. Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory for his community. As he becomes aware of the choices his world has made, he is faced with a difficult decision.

    An excellent resource! This book was designed especially for students before they begin high school. The subtitle is "Stuff You Need to Know, and Mistakes You Need to Stop Making, Before You Step Foot into High School." It's an awesome book designed to ensure students know some relatively basic facts before they hit high school. For example, they should know the order of the planets, most of the more familiar presidents (although if they want to learn them all, they can do that here too), a basic timeline of world and U.S. events, how to find the diameter, radius and circumference of a circle, how to make subjects and verbs agree in sentences, at least five major artists and musicians, and the most famous works of some of the most famous authors in history. It sounds like a lot of information - and it is - but this book is in no way overwhelming. It is very non-threatening, with only about 70 pages including the introduction and other informational pages. The size isn't the only thing that is non-threatening -the text is written in very personable, often entertaining style from an author who doesn't want to bore students or surround them with long definitions, but really wants them to learn the basics to create a good foundation for their more advanced schooling. He speaks not in a know-it-all tone, but in a this-is-great-stuff-to-know manner. The book starts at the very broadest of issues, the universe, and works its way down to the smaller things like individual topics and famous people. Each topic is usually presented on a two-page spread, although some (like World History) take up a little more space. Here is a sampling of the spread and type of knowledge given on each topic, using the universe pages as an example. A column on the left side of the pages gives a brief overview to what we can know about the universe, and then we move on to "stuff you should know about your universe." This section provides a basic yet in depth summary of the universe, with important terms in bold. These bolded terms are Earth, the Solar System, star, galaxy, Milky Way, cluster, and light year. Enough information is given to students about each of them to give them a basic knowledge and understanding, sufficient but not enough to write a research paper about. The right hand page covers constellations, good terms to know such as black holes, nebula, and supernova, and finally a small section titled "Don't Make These Mistakes Anymore!" which tells students the difference between astronomy and astrology, what exactly a light year is (it is not a measure of time, but a distance), that the Earth and other planets revolve around the sun, which moves with the entire galaxy as it turns and moves through space, and what exactly an astronomical unit is. This same format (although it varies by topic) is used throughout the book to provide students with an excellent base for further learning. I know this is kind of a long list, but I want you to be able to see how complete this book actually is, so here is the table of contents: the Universe, the Solar System, Earth, Continents and Oceans, Countries and Cities, Islands and Mountains, Lakes and Rivers, U.S. Geography, Canadian Geography, World History, American History, U.S. Presidents, Canadian History, Math, Science, Writing and Grammar, Art and Music History, Literature, Major Religions, Languages, People, and Life and Miscellaneous. I think every pre-highschooler should definitely have access to and read a copy of this book, as well as any high school student or even beyond who would enjoy keeping a copy of the basics around. By the same author as 500 Keywords for the SAT, and How to Remember Them Forever and 100 Math Tips for the SAT, and How to Master Them Now! - Melissa

      Learn about the stars while having some dot-to-dot fun with these oversized, challenging puzzles. Each constellation is given two pages – information about the constellation on the right and the constellation puzzle on the left. Information for each includes the mythology of the constellation, its place in the zodiac, and information about special stars within the constellation. Each puzzle takes up a full page (11.5” x 11.5”); just follow the tiny stars and dots to complete the constellation. The number of dots per puzzle varies from 300-500+, with the actual constellation formation imposed onto the puzzle you are completing. It includes 29 constellations in all to “brighten” up your science curriculum. Diagrams of the answers and a short glossary are included at the back of the book. Discover the constellations as you learn and draw your way through the night sky. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    Introduce your younger students to the world of electricity in this hands-on, fun kit by Klutz. Mold 15 different clay projects using 5 colors of clay, 20 LEDS, a battery pack (requires 4AA batteries, not included), and over 50 punch-out paper pieces. You will get four colors of conductive clay blue, green, orange, and black; and one block of white, insulating clay. The conductive clay allows electrons to flow through, and the insulating clay is firmer and doesn't allow the flow of electrons. The kit includes a 52-page book with numbered instructions with illustrations for each clay project. Make a Rocket, UFO, Flower, Shooting Star, Jack-O-Lantern, Flashlight, Cupcake, Snowman, Astronaut, Robot, Night Window, Police Car, and Dragon all with light-up features. The book also includes a list of other things you might need for the projects (household items), LED care, cleaning up, powering up the battery pack, clay shaping basics, how to use the paper punch-outs, and explanations of simple circuitry. Jess, Ramsey, and Gemma made the dragon, and he was adorable with his light-up eyes. I think the amazing thing is that you can use clay to teach basics of circuitry in a way that really makes sense to young learners. ~ Donna

    Finally, a game of knowledge about things that really matter! (Foam) duel your companions in a heated competition of list-making about comic books, games, science fiction, fantasy, and more. Can you recall four characters from the Star Trek universe? Easily! But could you think of 18 or more? You'll have to if your buddies are as geeky as you! Each turn, a player rolls a colored die. A corresponding list challenge is chosen from a card. However, that card is just a baseline trial. All players can up the ante by calling out how many items they think they can list. The player who lives up to their word and writes down the most entries succeeds in the epic quest of attaining that card. The first person to get a pre-determined number of cards can revel triumphantly in geeky glory! For 2 or more players. Game time: approx. 30 minutes.

    Colorful, cardstock poster shows a large 10x10 number grid with the 5's and 10's in a different color. The large format (17x22") has a star border with rainbow colored balloons across the top. This would be great as a math reference tool, of course, but also for the 100th day of school! Use it as a count down (or up!) On the back of the poster are 50 activity ideas for the 100th day, a smaller version of the number grid that is reproducible, and a 100th day certificate you can copy for your students to color. ~ Sara
