       Typically, young children don’t just dive in and have beautiful, legible handwriting. Strengthening of fine motor skills helps them develop the control they need for handwriting. This book offers 64-pages of practice for the pre-writing years. Six basic patterns are presented and practiced in a fun way that should appeal to the preschool and kindergarten crowd – left to right (sideways), tall and short lines (top to bottom), zigzag (going up and down), spiral and circle (around and back, around and forward), up and over, and down and under. The practice progresses from children drawing with wide shaded and dotted lines to shaded without dotted lines, to narrower lines, to no shading or lines at all. All this practice is done on blackline pictures that can be colored after finishing their lines. Start developing that handwriting with some pre-writing fun! ~ Donna

    I'll say. This 416-page book holds a multitude of math activities appealing to young children. Each page holds fun, colorful illustrations and engaging exercises. The first section concentrates on number recognition and writing. Each number 0-20 is introduced through a variety of coloring, drawing, tracing, writing, and fun pages. The numbers are reviewed after 5, 10, and 20 to ensure retention. Additional sections provide practice in place value, comparison, skip counting by 2, 5, and 10, addition and subtraction with one and two digits, graphing, time, and money. Each section provides complete instruction and holds a number of pages devoted to teaching the concept. The end of the book holds cute math rhymes to further reinforce the numbers. If you're looking for a beginning math book that will hold your child's attention and provide fun learning activities, this book is just the item. ~ Steph

    Building a solid foundation with basic math skills is so important; children will continue to build on them for the rest of their math lives. Making sure that the essentials are solid can be done with extra practice and activities and this book provides over 250 suggestions that can help from kindergarten to third grade.

    The book is divided by grade level, so you know which activities will be appropriate. The first page of each grade level offers a list of items to be used with the activities. These are items that you may already have in your home but feel free to substitute. At the Pre-kindergarten level, the book suggests about 30 items: vinyl non-skid spots, beanbags, abacus, ball, buttons, hot glue, index cards, number cubes, counters, paper cups, manipulatives, letter tiles, blocks, plastic containers, erasers, puzzle pieces, string, pencils, ribbons, calendar, stickers, interlocking cubes, pen tops, old keys, two containers, marbles, crackers, pictures of animals, dish, cardboard rectangle and tape or chalk. In the first activity you are asked to put vinyl non-skid spots on the floor and children are asked to follow directions to go ___ steps forward or back. If you don’t have the non-skid spots, for example, you can substitute sidewalk chalk and do the activity outside or use tape to put a pattern on your floor or even cut shapes out of construction paper and tape them on the floor. The idea is that they have a trail to follow and count. The supply list is similar at each level with some variation and additional items needed at the higher grades.

    The front of the book offers instruction for the parent/teacher for incorporating activities into your curriculum and information on standards met. The appendices include reproducible pages that consist of a skills inventory (great for keeping track of your child’s math progress), rubrics and pages needed for some of the activities. These same pages are found in pdf format on the resource cd in the back of the book. The activities in this 168-page book add a multi-sensory aspect to learning the foundational material needed in math and would be a great addition for your kinesthetic learners. ~ Donna

    If you are anything like me, the idea of finding easy and fun arts and crafts projects and doing them with your children sounds like a fantastic idea, but finding the time to sit down and do them seems difficult! Rifling through books or searching through Pinterest and collecting all the various and sundry supplies can take a major time commitment, also. That's why I got so excited when I saw this book. Not only does it include tons of ideas, but projects are specifically geared to develop a child's fine motor skills while utilizing common household and or easily obtainable materials. The book is divided into nine chapters, including Play Dough, Printing & Stamping, Lacing & Stringing Fun, Finger Plays & Puppets, Glue & Collage Art, Scissors, Painting, Chalk, Crayons & Pencils, and Displaying Art. Each chapter contains tons of recipes, directions and activity ideas to make and use your creations. Make one of the 25+ types of Play Dough like Gingerbread or Coffee, then follow the activity suggestions for playing with it. Dye your own pasta noodles for lacing and jewelry making. Create your own paints and glues with various looks, textures, and smells (clove-scented paint, anyone?). Make outdoor artwork with your homemade sidewalk chalks in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. In all, the book contains 60 different recipes, 50 activity ideas, and 48 reproducible student pages. Each recipe and activity just looks so simple, fun, and do-able! I can hardly wait to get started! Pb, 96 pgs. ~ Megan

    Create your own long lasting, professional looking book! The IlluStory A+ kit contains non-toxic, washable markers, writing pages, instructions, hints, a story planner, and a postage paid envelope. Write your story, then illustrate it. When you're finished, mail it in (at no additional charge) for completion and production. They'll typeset and bind your book, returning a 7" x 9" hardcover book that even has a place for a dedication. The kit produces an 18 page book, and the author's bio can be placed on the back cover.

    Authors have the choice of either creating their book by hand using the materials in the kit, or producing their book online using the company's website. Working online allows kids to upload photos or scanned images and use digital drawing tools and effects (like speech bubbles, pre-designed backgrounds and more). Designing online also allows them to place more text on each page (there are per-page word limits for hard copy bookmaking). Planning sheets, informational sheets on types of writing and quite a few "story web" graphic organizers flesh out the contents of IlluStory A+ and may be helpful to tie the project in with your current writing curriculum. Next step, the Library of Congress! - Megan

    Student packs include the student workbook and test booklet.

    Consumable student worktexts contain a mix of practice problems and word problems. Space is provided to work out the problems, but some students may prefer having access to "scratch paper" to work problems, especially at the higher levels. 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.
