    Sometimes, it does pay to wait. I wanted to stock my very favorite beginning origami book but it wasn't packaged with origami paper. Instead, the publisher carried a product called Fun with Origami that contained a different origami book and paper. I really liked the concept, but the book that came with it was not nearly as clear and simple to follow as Easy Origami. So, I held off...and - voíla - Dover packaged my favorite beginning origami book with twenty-four 7" x 7" high quality sheets of colorful origami paper and called it Fun with Easy Origami. While the title is similar to their Fun with Origami offering, the products are not the same. If you're a beginner, or you're children want to start paper folding, this is the place to start. Even children can follow the diagrams with no adult help. It includes 32 projects. Step-by-step large, clear diagrams make folding easy. Text is large, clear, and also simple. First projects have all the instructions on one page. The rest are a double-page spread so you don't have to flip back and forth. I've tested a lot of different beginning books, but this is by far the easiest to use. My twins, when they were eight years old, enthusiastically and proudly folded project after project until they ran out of paper, which inspired me to also offer paper refills (located in the Craft Supplies & Materials section). Besides helping to refine their fine motor skills, it's a great way to practice reading carefully and following directions!

      Targeting a slightly older crowd, this flexible curriculum resource may inspire delight-directed learning in your family. In this (mostly) self-study, children begin by choosing topics they wish to study and take steps to achieve their goals. Tips for wisely choosing resources while using these recommended resources: computer access and personal Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music, Google Earth and parent-approved news sources, educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math U See suggested). Listed are also a few necessary supplies: pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler.

      The heart of this course is the gentle, guiding learning in an array of subject areas including reading, creative writing, spelling and vocabulary, classical literature and music, mathematics (open ended to use with your math curriculum), science, geography, current events and much more. Comparing this to the author’s Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft, you will note overlapping activities but a different focus. The aforementioned course includes an animal and farm theme designed to engage younger learners, whereas the DIY Curriculum is written for a slightly older crowd and focuses on Geography and “world news today” events. Woven throughout the course are research projects to learn about mining in the real world, which provides a fascinating “rabbit trail” to a Minecraft study.

      If you are wondering which of the Thinking Tree Minecraft studies would best fit your child, younger children who thrive when working more directly with a parent, may find the Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft (#068704) a better option. While the reading level recommended for this course is grade 2 and up, many of the research activities and world studies seem better fit for an older child. Other activities like the backyard science nature walk and study may work with all ages. Another consideration in selecting these activities is the student’s ability to concentrate for longer periods of time. While the author does not define computer time in this course, her general guidelines for daily study are 5 pages per day for 10 years and under and 10 pages per day for 10 years and up (2-4 hours per day). Repetition is also built into this curriculum guide allowing students to study various aspects of Minecraft in a similar fashion.

     Love the idea of unschooling, but struggle to find a balance between too much unproductive time and a strictly scheduled day? This resource may provide the perfect balance. Subtitled, “The Beginner’s Journal”, this animal and farm themed curriculum gently guides learning in several areas including reading, handwriting, logic, spelling, classic literature and music, mathematics including practice in addition, subtraction, and multiplication, creative writing, and more.

      Due to the open-ended nature of this course, you will notice repetition in many of the activity pages. For example, the backyard science/nature walk study pages, animals of the world, and reading time pages allow children to document varied observations and studies. Many struggling learners thrive on familiarity, which helps create a fun learning experience for struggling or younger students. Parents will need to assist their children in choosing topics of study, completion of some activities and securing additional, recommended resources.

      Recommended educational resources include a computer with your own Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music CDs, a variety of educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math-U-See are suggested). Necessary school supplies include pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler. Assorted dyslexia games from the author’s Series A and B are included, and the Dyslexie font is utilized. Author states a child may work in this book up to 3 hours daily for 6 weeks, with 30 minutes of computer time 3 days per week, although flexibility allows you to fit to your family’s needs. Reproducible for children in your household. Black and white graphics. SC. 294 pgs. ~Deanne

      There are so many projects you can make for a porch or front door with this sturdier version of your favorite Mod Podge! Let the kids come up with seasonal decorating ideas or try out something you found online. Make a “Welcome” sign and attach it to an old chair you repurpose and decorate with whimsical paints and papers. If you are decorating a clay pot to match your patio furniture, seal the inside first to keep water from soaking through and ruining your artwork. To use this product, brush a layer onto your surface, apply decorative papers or fabric, and then apply several thin coats, letting it dry about 20 minutes between coats. On the Mod Podge website, they recommend you let your items cure (harden) indoors 3-7 days before setting it outside. ~Sara
