    Have you ever used a book and just kept thinking about the changes you would make? Perhaps that was the experience of Margot Davidson. Taking a classic – Primary Language Lessons by Emma Serl – she tweaked it just a bit. The result is all the warmth of the original with just a little more practicality, more beauty, and more applicability. The same wonderful balance between oral and written work has been preserved along with all the basic elements – copywork/dictation, picture study, memorization selections, grammar sequences, and composition. Some of the pictures are now in full color, and some are changed to appeal more to young readers. Also, some changes were made to bring it in line with today's English. Already flexible (could be used as either a full third grade course or spread over second and third grade), some of the exercises toward the end of the 164 lessons have been broadened, making them more appropriate for students at the end of third grade. Perhaps the most noticeable change is the typesetting, which is modern; the pages having much more "white space" and an added coil-binding making it so much easier to use for copywork or for "teacherwork." ~ Janice

       Emma Serl enthusiasts will welcome this sequel to her beloved Primary Language Lessons and Intermediate Language Lessons. Chosen by the author of the PLL and ILL Teacher Guides (Mary Jane Newcomer) to approximate and complement the language learning experience of those texts, this reprint of the 1917 Aldine Third Language Book has been edited and updated only as necessary. Instructions in this book are written directly to the student but assume the presence of a teacher/parent. With an emphasis on effective written communication, grammar coverage is thorough and comprehensive although there are few practice exercises (by today’s standards); there are only a few for each concept covered. There is no answer key or teacher guide (yet) for this book. Editing/updating is minimal but with an eye to conformance with the Chicago Manual of Style. There are a few references to religious content (i.e. Battle Hymn of the Republic or quotes). 5.5”x 8.5”, 348 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    These 100 reproducible activity sheets are great daily exercises for extra language practice. The format is consistent throughout the pages. Each page holds three separate exercises. At the top of the page is a short story, in which six vocabulary words are underlined and followed by blanks. Below the passage are the six definitions, lettered a-f. As students read through the passage, they write the letter of the correct definition in the blanks after the words. The middle section contains a list of six words for students to practice spelling and writing. The section at the bottom of each page gives six phrases or words for students to replace with a new word. For example, "to move like a rubber ball" or "beautiful." Students would then respond by writing something such as "bounce" and "pretty" on the blanks provided. 112 pgs. - Melissa

     Self-described as Charlotte Mason-flavored, this is language arts curriculum with a Biblical emphasis. As a starting place for each weekly lesson, students will read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences. Each week follows the same pattern of activities: Day 1, read the weekly story; Days 2-3, learn topics in writing, grammar and punctuation; Day 4, write responses to a prompt (alternating between picture study, poetry and a Psalm); and Day 5, work on spelling and vocabulary and build a dictionary. Brief assessments are provided quarterly. The fourth quarter is designed for review. Starting with Level 2, students are introduced to punctuation, grammar & writing. students will learn about nouns, compound words, subjects/predicates; possessive nouns; combining sentences; commas; interjections; action verbs; homophones; synonyms/antonyms and specific verbs such as be, has and see and pronouns like this and that. Biblical themes and assignments (such as memorizing verses from 1 Corinthians 13 alongside Micah and Claire) are used throughout. Level 3 will further strengthen previous reading, observation and communication skills, and begin writing paragraphs. Level 4 (expected late 2018) will strengthen previous skills and add study in noun types, verb tenses, mechanics and write compositions.

      This is a combined student and teacher consumable book. On the student pages, teacher notes are highlighted and kept minimal. While designed for you and the student to work along together, this text provides additional direction in the front matter and in the Teacher’s Aid section (about 100 pgs) in the back. This section includes dictionary pages to copy (or you can print off from the publisher’s web site); optional games to practice different language skills; spelling practice ideas; sight words alphabet practice; copywork practice; and grammar study sheets. You’ll want to provide more reading practice opportunities: a template to record these and a recommended Master Books reading list is included. Scriptures are from the NASB. Non-reproducible, consumable and 3-hole punched.

      Master Books recommends beginning this series after Foundations Phonics and Basic Language Skills. However, to select a starting place, the general expectation is that the student’s skills should be comfortably at grade level (in reading, writing, and in handwriting).

    Creation itself displays the glory of God! Originally written in 1836, this book is based on the premise that examples of various virtues are exemplified in the animal kingdom. For example, a woodpecker demonstrates honesty. Each of the 50 two-page character lessons describes the animal or individual and then draws the personal application. Most of the readings highlight virtues as evidenced in the behavior of animals; some, however, are human examples that showcase either vices or virtues. This reprint retains all of the original: traditional type-set style font, original language and writing structure, etc. Therefore, some archaic terms are also included such as Esquimaux (Eskimo/Inuit). Consequently, for younger children, this might best serve as a read aloud. A unique way to discuss character development. 96 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
