    A fun introduction to letters and sounds for your littlest learners. They will practice letter recognition, letter-sound association, matching sounds, following directions, problem solving, and more as they enjoy the colorful images. Instructions are read to your child. Stars and check marks show how many letters and sounds were matched correctly. Footprints across the bottom of the screen track progress. After exercises, there are games as a reward. Develop essential pre-school skills and build reading readiness. Be sure to add lots of reading time with your child. As you read a story, you can remind them that they worked on that sound today on the computer. Then the next time you do the exercises, remind your child of the story and the sounds such as the beginning of character's names. It's the cross-referencing that helps this new knowledge stick! Recommended for ages 3-5. Minimum system requirements: Windows Vista, XP, 2000 or Mac OS X 10.5, 10.4.11, 10.3.9. ~ Sara

A removable knob on the bottom of the 10.5” x 11” square base allows the base to tilt back and forth for an added challenge.

    Classroom Data Tracking is more classroom oriented, but would be a good tool for those who are concerned about standards. Data Tracking just means observing students and tracking their progress toward skills mastery. Data tracking allows you to see gaps that may need re-teaching and works well for targeted lesson planning. It allows parents and teachers to give more individualized instruction based on the needs of each student. There is an explanation in the front on how to use it and the different types of reproducible pages. The content is based on current state standards in the areas of math and language arts. The first part of each book is math concepts and the latter language arts. Each section begins with a skills inventory, which will show the areas that need attention. Within each section you will find record-keeping pages, lists of the standards for the grades before and after each specific grade, and a quick assessment (reproducible) page that can be used for assessing grasp of the concept. 160 pages each.

    Even if you live in an urban area, you can still learn all about animal tracks and make your own realistic casts with this kit from Young Scientist's Club. The kit includes plaster of Paris, a brush, sand, two bowls, an animal track game with 80 cards, a poster, stickers, two popsicle sticks, a measuring cup, watercolor paint and an instruction manual. Play the card game to match animals with their tracks (learning 40 animal tracks in the process!), and place matching animal and track stickers on the poster. Several groups of animal tracks are featured at the bottom of the poster – can you tell the "story" behind them? Then get ready to make your own set of animal track casts using the eight included molds and plaster! After you've perfected your casting technique, it's time to look for animal tracks in nature. When you find one, follow the instructions to capture the track using wet plaster and add your "wild find" to your new collection of animal tracks. The full-color instructions walk parent and child through the activities and directions, and provide a place to record answers and observations. This would be a fun kit to explore before taking a hiking, hunting or camping trip; you could even take the animal track matching game on the road with you for the whole family to enjoy! – Jess

    It’s not hard to guess the connection – Hooked on Phonics; Hooked on Spelling. Just like its “kissing cousin,” Hooked on Spelling is fun, colorful, and easy-to-use. The general format of the program is familiar as well: Learn (a short 5-7 minute, computer-based lesson), Practice (5-7 minute segment with the engaging workbooks), and Play (another 5-7 minutes having fun with new skills). Each lesson ends with a celebration and a sticker on a progress chart. In fact, this celebration is part of the overall educational philosophy of the program which includes working side by side with your student, encouragement/praise, mastery, being patient, not overdoing it, working in a quiet place, employing real-world spelling activities, surrounding the child with words, and lastly (most importantly?) reading with the child every day. There are two levels: Yellow – roughly corresponding to the 1st grade level of HOP Learn to Read – and Red, corresponding to HOP Learn to Read 2nd grade. Program components for each level include a CD-ROM, a worktext, a spelling study card, a progress poster and stickers. The CD-ROM lessons (20 including reviews) each provide instruction plus interactive reinforcement. Worktexts are for practice and include exercises, reviews and family-time activities. Each word is written at least three times in this segment. The wipe-off Spelling Study Card is available for more practice and provides some guidance for effective mastery. Stickers applied to the Colorful Poster (11” x 7,” laminated) track your student’s progress. All instruction centers around the computer component and although the computer program is professional with good audio and practice, there is no way to skip forward through the lessons. If typing is a roadblock for the child, it may be frustrating. The Yellow level (six words per lesson) covers beginning consonant and rhyming word families, ending consonant sounds, short vowels, beginning and ending blends, word families with ending blends, “ch,” “sh,” “th,” and some irregular words. The Red level (eight words per lesson) covers short vowels vs. long vowels, blends vs. non-blends, “c” sounds, “g” sounds, “y,” plurals and other endings, and some irregular words. ~ Janice System Requirements: Windows 2000, XP or higher; Mac OS 10.1 or higher.

    When my sisters and I were young, we had a robot that would follow a black line, and we were continually amazed by it, although it got confused at intersections and stumbled along somewhat awkwardly at times. Well, line-tracking technology has come a long way since then and toys like the Doodle-Track car are so much easier and more enjoyable to use! The Doodle-Track Car set includes an illustrated race track play mat, a black marker, sticker decals, and the small, plastic Doodle-Track Car. You can customize the car with the decals, then draw a track with the black marker (or any other black marker) on paper, switch on the car, and it will follow the line! The car will slow down at an intersection then proceed to follow the line it is currently on. If it comes to a broken or checkered line, it will pause. You can draw your own neighborhood with streets and roads, test its capabilities by creating a black-line obstacle course, or visit www.doodletrackcar.com to create customized racetracks! The car runs on 2 AAA batteries, not included. - Jess

    This R/C car moves so fast, it reminds me more of a slot car than the slow and sluggish R/C cars of yesteryear. This car excels at fast cornering, so it's thrilling to drive and quite a challenge to keep on track. Use the four included cones for a high speed formula race style obstacle course. The car runs on a lithium ion battery (included) that you recharge with the controller. It held its charge for quite a few laps before it needed recharging for about 10 minutes…just enough time to rearrange the cones (and some furniture) before heading off to the races again! The controller uses 3 AA batteries (not included).

    One of my greatest finds at a library booksale was an old worn-out copy of this book. It was one of my favorite books as a kid, and it still is. Seabiscuit, a thoroughbred, was a descendent of the famous horse, Man 'O War. While he didn't have the sleek look and great confirmation of his ancestor, he had the heart of a champion. People of all ages will love this heartwarming story of the colt as he goes from an abusive beginning to shattering records at race tracks across the country. ~ Megan

    Ok, so he can't actually come with you, but he has shared the best of his field trip advice, tips on drawing from nature, and hundreds of illustrations in this book which will definitely get you wanting to grab those hiking boots right away! The book is divided into four parts, based on four very different nature trips: bug hunting, animal tracking, bird-watching, and shore walking. In each section, Jim addresses a wide variety of topics, including identification, equipment, recording the sighting, safety, and much more particular to that environment. In "Bug Hunting," we'll also read about how to avoid ticks, how to find cases, cocoons and chrysalises, and how to hunt for bugs at night. "Animal Tracking" covers the identification of tracks from a variety of different animal groups, and how tracks come in different sets depending on the speed and motion of the animal. In "Bird-Watching", we read about bird behavior, and identifying other signs of a particular bird in an area. "Shore Walking" delves into a variety of other objects, living and non-living that you might find on the shore, as well as identifying shoreline plants and trees. The text is kept short and exciting to suit the attention spans of the young, active "I-wanna-go-out-and-catch-bugs-right-now" crowd, and Arnosky's own detailed, beautiful illustrations abound, filling the margins of pages and blank pages with an abundance of common nature walk "findees." 96 pgs, hc.

    The history of disease is fascinating! Significant and rapid changes have occurred in just the past 100 years and looking back in time, one realizes how blessed we are with modern healthcare.

      Imagine tens of thousands of people dying from a disease that progresses from fatigue and weakness to high fever and death within weeks. Typhoid was a preventable and treatable disease that spread due to ignorance, fear and noncompliance. In Mary’s defense, while considered patient 0, she remained symptom free throughout her life, although she was twice forcibly isolated by public health authorities and died after nearly three decades in isolation. Children and adults will be fascinated by the scientific and historical facts of the early 20th century New York City cook, Mary Mallon, and the struggle to protect the public from the fatal typhoid fever. Well written with black and white photographs. Gripping supplement to your history or science courses. 175 pgs, hb. ~ Deanne

    Have you been put in charge of something? Lots to keep track of? Take it all with you and don’t lose a thing! This is similar to a 3-ring binder in function, but it has a spiral binding, frosted-clear poly cover with a clear-view front pocket, and 5 double-sided file pockets with pastel tabs to write on. The overall size is about 11” x 11.5” including the spiral binding. It holds 8.5” x 11” papers. I can see this holding garden or landscape ideas, keeping a homeschool co-op organized, holding church group notes or even organizing lesson activities you want to save. Tabs can be written on with pencil, pen or permanent marker. The plastic is archival, so you can safely use them for photos. Your students could use them for their schoolwork or to keep track of sports calendars and practice schedules. Because the pockets are 2-sided, you have 10 folders in all. It’s thinner than a spiral notebook, so you can have one for each child’s activities and take with you! Insert a photo on the cover too! ~ Sara
