    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.

     My Big Art Show is a card game (art rummy) which can be played by 2 or more players. Shuffle the cards and deal out 7 to each player. The remaining cards go face down in a pile in the middle, with the top card turned up on a second pile. Look at your cards & decide which paintings to collect. Each card shows a color image of a painting, its title & date, the artist’s name, the movement & theme, a number of stars for fame & value (up to 5 stars each) and a Find Out! question which can earn you an extra star. Each card is about 4” x 6” w/rounded corners. You need to collect one set with the same theme, one set with the same movement, and you have to have a set of 3 & a set of 4. The 6 themes include: animals, still life, stories, people, places and religion. The 12 art movements include: Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, Post-impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism and Pop Art. When it’s your turn, take a card from either pile and discard 1 card to the face-up pile. The winner is the first player to get a set of 3 and a set of 4 in theme & movement. At the end of a round, the winner counts the stars as points. The player with the most stars wins. Five bonus cards can either add or take away stars from your score. You can keep it simple or get trickier by answering the Find Out! question every time you pick up a face-up card to earn another star. Instructions for 4 more games are also here, but there is much more to be found in this little book! There are summaries and examples of all 12 movements and the 6 themes shown on the cards. Then, you have information about the 47 artists on the cards! Some of the artists include W. Blake, Paul Cezanne, S. Dali, F. Goya, P. Klee, R. Lichtenstein, J. Miro, Raphael, H. Tanner, D. Velasquez and A. Warhol. This part of the book is color-coded by movement and can be used as a reference when playing the various card games. The last page is a glossary of 18 art terms such as fresco, impasto, etc. The cards are durable and the set comes in a box that will keep it all together nicely. Use to introduce art or reinforce your art appreciation study. The rummy game is easy to catch onto and a variety of ages can play together. Though I think the text in the book would be directed to upper elementary and middle grade students, older students can appreciate learning about the paintings and artists as they play the various games. Some paintings will be familiar, but not all! Perfect for an art unit study, too! Set includes 54 playing cards & 60 pp book. Box is 8.5” x 6” x 1.75” ~ Sara

    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
