    A thoroughly delightful collection of poems, grouped by categories, accompanied with lovely (and often familiar) illustrations both in color and black/white. Poems were selected from well-known and well-loved poets both traditional (Stevenson, Rosetti, Frost, Blake) and modern (Angelou). Short notes on each are included as sidebar information. Although designed as a read-aloud, it could easily be read by an older child. 230 pgs. hb (with dust cover) ~ Janice

    Pattern blocks aren't just for the little ones. The activities in this book provide practice for the middle school grades with fractions, symmetry, classifying, area and perimeter, patterning, probability and statistics, and algebraic concepts. Using pattern blocks (sold separately), students will hone their problem solving skills in 60 different activities that range from playing games to covering printed designs with a variety of pattern blocks, but they have to figure out which blocks to use. Every activity includes teaching instructions, blackline masters, and suggestions for extensions. Answers aren't included in the book but are available at a link provided.

    Since some of the games are meant for 2-3 players, this would be a good activity for family or co-op play. Dust off those old pattern blocks and put them to good use again. CD included that contains a digital book with virtual manipulative. ~ Donna

    When it comes to cleaning and organizing your home, keep it simple so kids can easily help out. This colorful, laminated flip chart uses clear illustrations and check boxes so children know exactly what is expected of them. When they are finished, they flip the page, a reward in itself! The zones include living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Each zone has steps to follow and check off, but also a place to write in specific chores to be done each day. In the living room, Step 1 is "pick up." Graphics show a laundry basket and items like shoes, books, & dishes with an arrow to place these items in the basket. This is helpful for children too young to read. A check box says to Grab a basket or plastic tub. Put items that do not belong in the living room in the basket. Step 2 Return items to their proper place in the house. Step 3 Tidy up. Neatly arrange items in the living room. Step 4 Day of the week job. Mon. vacuum Tues. Dust Wed. Wash off fingerprints Thurs. Vacuum Fri. dust. Step 5 daily job (that you customize to your home/family). When the chores are done, you check the box and flip the page. Boom! Done! Easy peasy! A 15 minute instructional DVD will clarify any questions you may have, but really, it is well laid out and easy to follow. 5" x 8.5", spiral binding across the top. ~ Sara

    This kit has a bit different take on digging for dinosaur fossils – you have to bury them first! Mix the plaster powders with water using the included spoon, position the plastic skeleton parts, and layer more of the plaster mix over the parts. Let the layers dry and then you can use the tools to break the pieces out of the plaster. Put on the safety glasses and use the chisel, hammer, and brush as you unearth the pieces. After washing the dust from your 10 skeletal pieces, assemble them to make your Tyrannosaurus Rex model. The tools are some of the sturdiest I have ever seen in dig kits and the model pieces are nice heavyweight plastic. The instruction book that is included offers written instruction as well as photos of each step of the process. Bury, Dig, Discover!

    Microscope activity books are great if you already have everything you need to start making your own slides, but what if you don't? That's why I like this kit. The experiment manual is solid enough to stand on its own - a rarity in most science kits today - and the kit includes everything you need to begin using the microscope, exploring prepared slides, and preparing and making your own slides. The full-color 48-page manual begins by explaining microscope use and care, as well as how to safely make thin slices from specimens using a scalpel or razor blade. Then young scientists are ready to start observing! The following sections focus on viewing cells of different types, including cheek cells, onion skin, onion cells affected by salt, egeria/elodea, various fruits and vegetables, starch from foodstuffs, hydra, pollen grains, salt and sugar crystals, insect wings, insect specimens, mushrooms, root hairs, watermelon water ducts, blades of grass, leaves, hair, nettle hairs, and feathers. Each section provides informational text about the subject viewed, detailed instructions on how to make and mount the specimen, tips on specimen-making techniques, and photos of photographed specimens under the microscope. Since the student will probably not be very proficient at preparing their own slides, several prepared slides are included as examples, and the more difficult-to-make specimens are saved for later in the book. The photos of example specimens are also helpful for beginners. Unlike many microscope kits, this one actually has a fairly decent microscope. It is constructed of metal and plastic microscope and has pretty good focusing ability. Features include: a monocular 10X eyepiece, 4X, 10X and 40X glass objective lenses (for 40X, 100X and 400X total magnification). The microscope includes two bright LED lights, one above and one below the stage. This kit would be a great choice for a microscope study, along with a science curriculum, or just for the interested student, especially if you are not planning on investing in a good-quality microscope in the future. Kit includes the experiment manual, microscope, blank slides, prepared slides, coverslips, tweezers, a dissection needle, a scalpel, a pipette, Petri dish with lid, stain, lens paper, blank labels for slides, and a dust cover for the microscope. Microscope requires 3 AA batteries (not included). - Jess

    As a busy homeschool mom, my desire to journal was fraught with best intentions that never became reality. Blank pages, dated journals, and even memory-focused journals gathered dust as they sat neglected on the shelf. I wish someone had introduced me to the concept of "guilt free" journaling all those years ago. I may have actually enjoyed journaling success! Beginning with a letter to "Busy Mom" and journaling tips for busy moms, permission is given to journal in a way that reflects your current season of life, whether that means daily journaling or a monthly effort. Moms seeking to be more consistent in journaling will find the included realistic tips a breath of fresh air. "Scriptural Promises for Busy Moms" offers encouragement to the stressed out mom who's in need of a special touch. The journal provides lined pages which invite you to share "words along the way" that are defined by you, the journalist - prayer requests, favorite scriptures, and highlights of the day, struggles and success stories. A simple pastel flower adds a muted background to the pages. Give yourself permission to journal, in your own way, basking in the encouragement poured out in these pages from the popular and busy homeschool mom Heidi St. John. Spiral bound. ~Deanne

    Another inspiring and engaging novel by Avi, and winner of a handful of children's choice book awards, this is one that is definitely hard to put down. Determined and resourceful Ida Bidson dreams of being a teacher someday, and with 8th grade examinations approaching, and a good year on the farm last year, it just might be possible to convince her parents to let her attend high school in the city. But when an unexpected turn of events forces the teacher of their one-room schoolhouse to return home, the school board decides not to find a replacement until the next year, and expecting the children to repeat the year. Ida is distraught at the idea of repeating 8th grade, and her dreams of being a teacher, already on shaky ground, may bite the dust. Unless… they can find a way to finish the school year themselves. Will Ida's first teaching job be a success or enough to make her reconsider? And can she still complete her own studies while teaching the other students their lessons, AND helping out with the farm work? And how long can they keep a "secret school" a secret in the valley where gossip spreads like wildfire? Definitely a page-turner, as well as an inspiring story where a girl who refuses to let go of her dreams doesn't mind a lot of challenging work to get there. - Jess

    A lovely collection of stories from many well-loved children's books such as Peter Pan, Call of the Wild, and Black Beauty as well as stand-alone stories. Arranged as 10-minute readings (for busy parents) that are likely to serve as salted oats to encourage children to read the entire book. Beautiful illustrations and artwork, many from the original books, are interspersed throughout the stories. 230 pgs. hb (with dust cover) ~ Janice

    With so many dry-eraseables in our catalog, we wanted to offer you a high-quality, high performance dry eraser. The durable construction of this eraser and its outstanding performance in ink removal won our hearts! It absorbs dust that other dry erasers miss and leaves no mess on hands or board ledges. When soiled, just wash out with soap and water, rinse well, and dry. If you use dry markers/boards like we do, buy two so you can wash/dry one while using the other! (Hint: use inexpensive bathroom white paneling to make write & wipe boards - works great!)

    This book gives a detailed, interesting account of United States history in a story-telling style. Full-color photographs and illustrations that support the text add to the learning experience. Timelines, profiles of historical figures, maps, charts, and graphs also help in learning and building map-reading skills. Meant to be used as an aid with any social studies curriculum, the book begins with an account of the arrival of the first Americans who traveled from Asia over the Bering Land Bridge and ends with a discussion of the information super highway of the twenty first century. The book is not written from a Christian perspective and religious references are not included.

    The book is broken down into ten units that tell of different eras in our history. Unit One tells about the Americas until the early 1500's. It discusses how people first came to the continent and tells of ancient Native American culture. Unit Two covers from 1492 to 1700 and shares the European exploration of America. Unit Three tells of the adventures that took place and the people involved during the colonial times of 1550 to 1775. Unit Four discusses the Revolutionary War and the beginning years of the nation from 1775 to 1810. Unit Five discusses the expansion of the U.S. from 1785 to 1860. Topics such as Lewis and Clark, The Erie Canal, the gold rush, and the Pony Express are covered. Unit Six tells about the Civil War, covering everything from slavery to Gettysburg to Lincoln's assassination. Unit Seven portrays the life events of the American people from 1865 to 1900. The railroad, pioneer life, and the Nez Perce are just a few of the topics covered in this section. Unit Eight covers from 1890-1920, including inventions like the airplane or ideas like the assembly line or the beginning of women's suffrage. Unit Nine tells of some struggles America overcame from 1914-1945, such as WW I, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and WW II, but it also lists some positive things that happened during the period, such as Jesse Owens winning Olympic medals and Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic. The final unit covers 1950 to the present time.

    Students read about all these historical events in a pleasant manner, and included activities add interest. Activities include writing essays about events or people, identifying things on maps, filling out word puzzles, and creating time-lines. Answers included. ~ Rachel S.

    This cute fairy house received a Tillywig award for Best Creative Fun! Premade and ready for your designs, this almost 8” x 4 ½” x 4 1/8” house is made of lightweight wood with metal hinge front doors. On the roof, a flower shaped wooden door swivels back and forth to allow your fairy to fly in. Our staff member who painted one of her own recommended applying a base coat (not included) prior to using the 6 pastel tempera paints for decorations. Includes a 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” booklet which, in poetry form, tells the Legend of the Dreamland Fairy. Although the overall idea is fairly innocuous, some parents may want to be aware that the story idea is that the fairy brings good dreams. Includes a 1 1/2” square non-reusable bag of Fairy Dust (white glitter), paints, a small paintbrush, booklet, a fairy and stand (cut out from the package container) and premade house. This product is not designed for rigorous play or outdoor use. Colors and content may vary. Although recommended ages begin at age 4, a child this age would work best with some adult assistance. ~ Ruth

    If you already have the dissection tools you need, this set just includes the individual specimens: an earthworm, a frog, a perch, and a crayfish. Specimens are nice and large, and are preserved with NASCO-Guard®. Please note that all specimens are enclosed in a plastic bag within a zip-close bag, and will ship with a separate packet of care and safety instructions. All specimens are packaged in one bag, so when bag is opened, you will need to reseal it in the reclosable bag to keep the other specimens from gradually drying out. Brief or minimal exposure to air will not harm the specimens. Refrigeration is not required.

    This book is now in 2nd ed. and chapters include What is Astronomy, The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, The Moon, Mars, Space Rocks, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Kuiper Belt and the Dwarf Planets, and Stars, Galaxies, and Space Travel. The last few chapters are where you see a change in the chapter sequence from the first edition – chapters 11 and through 14. There are still interesting activities and projects including a model solar system made of balloons, pinhole eclipse viewing box, making a compass, understanding the moon phases, and creating an astrometer. Children are sure to remember the information they are learning between hearing the text, performing the hands-on activities, and completing the journal pages.

    The text is formatted differently from first edition – it begins with an explanation of the text, activities, course website, notebooking journals, and science kit in clear bold print. Each lesson is full of new photography and illustrations and interspersed with scripture. Blue “Think about this” and “Wisdom from Above” boxes give special attention to the Creator, and orange questions are scattered throughout the lessons for students to think about and explain. Activities for each lesson include instructions and illustrations for completion. Every chapter is rounded out with “What do you Remember?” where students recall information from the lesson. The appendices include a lesson-by-lesson supply list for hands-on activities and an answer key for “What do you Remember?” questions.

    Notebooking journals are now in full color and color-coordinated. A suggested schedule is in the front of each notebooking journal, but you decide how many times a week to do your curriculum. The schedule lists daily assignments (71 total), and the lists have items listed in 3 different colors – green for textbook reading assignments, blue for notebook assignments, and brown for science kit activities. Pages in the notebooking journal are formatted for students to answer questions and complete activities. A review of the inner planets now follows lesson 8, review of the outer planets follows lesson 12, and a final review follows lesson 14. “Take it Further” pages are now drawing, making lists of books you’ve read, movies you’ve watched, additional experiments you may have completed, and making scrapbooking pages. Copywork is still included and coloring pages in the junior notebooking journals. There are answer keys in the back for vocabulary crossword puzzles and final review questions.

    Because of the content changes, first edition products won’t work with the 2nd edition. Experiments are different (four of them are unchanged), so lab supplies do vary as well.

    Includes Student Workbook and Test Booklet.

    Consumable student worktexts contain a mix of practice problems and word problems.

The front of the student worktext includes space to record grades for worksheet pages and tests.

    Consumable test booklets are provided to evaluate student progress. Parents are encouraged to reteach previous lessons if the student does not do well. Mastery is the goal, and lessons build upon one another so that future success is dependent on students really knowing the previous concept.
