    Do you want to see improved spelling in your students' writing? Research shows that 90% of English text consists of just 1000 words. This book focuses on teaching the most commonly used and misspelled words and ensuring that students of all ability levels receive intense instruction on core words. The book is divided into four main parts; Incredible English, Spelling and Teaching, Recommended Teaching Techniques, and Spelling Lists.

    The Incredible English chapter lists rules for spelling and then lists exceptions to the rules. It also compares the difficulty of spelling other languages to spelling English and covers the history of the how the English language has evolved. It also gives arguments for and against spelling reform in a humorous manner.

    The Spelling and Teaching section discussing ways a spelling program can be transferred to writing. Many students spell words correctly on tests but then forget to use the correct spelling in their writing. This part of the book gives ideas to keep that from happening. It discusses the importance of good spelling and explains why schools do not do a better job teaching it. It talks about the different types of memory a student uses to assist with spelling and gives suggestions for improvement.

    Recommended Teaching Techniques is the section of the book that suggests a few teaching methods that provide the greatest amount of practice in the least amount of time. Daily Practice provides six guided practices per word per day, each in about thirty seconds. Homework provides eleven independent practices per word per day, each in less than one minute. Diction provides distributed practice and allows the teacher to continually reinforce spellings, homophones, punctuation, capitalization, and form. Personal Words provide an optional method for dealing with misspellings in student writing in an effective and flexible way.

    The Spelling Lists section includes the 1000 Word Core List. It provides lists for grade levels K-6 and pretesting, review testing, and post-testing to assess students' learning. It also includes spelling rules and lessons and worksheets that correspond with the lists. This instructional book also includes a word bank and other teacher resources like a step-by-step checklist and challenge spelling lists. ~ Rachel

    From the front cover rendition of Jesus reaching out to take your hand to its very end, this book emphasizes that believe is an action word and believing the Word of God should change how you live your life. The book’s goal is for the parents to read these with their children, discussing and working through the Spiritual truths together.

    Chapters are organized into three sections of ten chapters each: Think, Act, and Be. Think focuses on core Christian beliefs (doctrines such as God’s character, salvation, identity in Christ and stewardship). Act focuses on Christian practices (such as worship, prayer, single-mindedness and giving) and Be focuses on Christian virtues that should be increasingly evident in a Christian life (the fruit of the Spirit). Each chapter contains several aids in Bible study. A Key Question, Idea and Verse identify the lesson’s main points. Think About It and Core Truths sections highlight the Scripture truth explored. At the end of each chapter, Discussion Questions explore Scripture meaning and life application. One blue line drawing in each chapter helps illustrate the Bible passage. This volume is the kids’ edition of the popular adult version of the same name also edited by Randy Frazee. Selections taken from the NIV, Reader’s Edition and are highlighted in blue, with references. A fairly in-depth yet user-friendly study to encourage each in your family to “walk as Jesus walked.” ~ Ruth

    Created to introduce young children (3-6 yrs.) to the Sciences, this resource book is perfect for families, preschools, library programs or every opportunity presented to youngsters to experience science.

    Divided into 5 sections: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, the activities focus on four core skills: creativity, communication, teamwork and critical thinking. Activities are clearly explained and include supply list, vocabulary, step by step instructions, predict and hypothesize guidance, and extension activities to add more STEAM activities.

      As an example, one activity involves children making a magnetic powered car using a toy car, 2 magnets and road tape. The activity begins by discussing magnetic forces as an alternative power source prior to driving the car using the 2 magnets. Predict and Hypothesize activities focus on using cars with different weights. Additional STEAM activities include creating a city to navigate the car through. The authors recommend children and parent/teachers keep a STEAM journal. An excellent introduction to STEAM that is flexible for a variety of learning situations. 94 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
