    Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord (Psalm 150:6), together with the nature that He hath created! This charming reprint contains a collection of four books originally written between 1855-1870. Containing twenty-nine stories that range from 8-25 pages, each focuses on teaching children the moral lessons of God through the eyes of nature. Retaining the original language, these tales may be best read aloud, as some of the vocabulary may challenge the elementary or young middle school student; yet it is the historic nature of these stories that adds beauty to the literature selections! Topically, children will observe authority and obedience through the worker bees; the circle of blessing found through the water cycle, the grace of God in our harvests; and many other spiritual anecdotes designed to lead children to a foundation of faith and good moral character. This book contains the original stories reprinted without added content, if you would prefer an edition of this text with expanded science lessons, please see Parables from Nature from Queen Homeschool (#50295). Unabridged, from Yesterday's Classics. Black and white illustrations. 442 pgs, sc. ~Deanne

    Looking for a solidly Christian and academically complete health and nutrition course for your high schooler? You may have just found it! Although this course was not available for an independent review prior to our catalog printing, it appears this course will meet the academic and value needs of homeschool families. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, this courses scope includes senses, genetics, macro and micro nutrients, exercise and diet. Emotional issues and mental illness, human value, culture, gender roles, families, socialization, communication skills and conflict resolution skills are also covered. Reproductive anatomy and physiology are covered including accurate illustrations and descriptions. Marriage, sexuality, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are discerningly explained, along with alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics necessary for our young people to understand for successful navigation in adulthood. This is handled gently, and respectfully, but parents should evaluate their young adults emotional and spiritual maturity prior to lessons. Over 50 projects are included in the text/student notebook which will not require a lab kit. The publisher states this will not meet a high school science lab credit.

    Unlike other Apologia courses, the Student Notebook is required for this course. Solutions are available online with course purchase. Apologia recommends the course be taken concurrently with their 9th grade Biology. Parents should discern their young person's ability and maturity. This one-year course will meet your transcript needs and prepare your student for college level courses. ~ Deanne

       This is a guide to developmentally appropriate activities in many learning areas – home life/social emotional, math/manipulatives, art/music, science/sensory, language/literacy, outdoor/gross motor, and field trip suggestions. Very little prep is needed to do the activities, just gather the supplies and books listed for a complete introduction with young children or accompaniment to your math and phonics/reading for kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade. Each month (September through May) incorporates a theme and a character trait into the activities, and is 3-hole punched so you can place the pages in a binder for easy access and storage. Printables are included and step-by-step instructions will make it easy for any parent to work through the activities. You should plan on 2 to 4 activities per day, but plan for what fits into your schedule – “flexibility” is the name of this game. 296 pgs, pb.

     

      Within the packet of pages, you will receive a monthly overview printed on card stock that can be hung up so mom can see what they will be covering during the month – a good visual and planning tool. Sections on the monthly overview list the activities to be done in each area of learning. An Introduction to the program explains the philosophy and a list of what will be covered by theme and character trait. The rest of the pages have beautiful photographs, and step-by-step instructions for implementation.

      Let me give you a sampling of one month of the program. The theme for September is “The World I Live In,” and the character trait is “wonder.” Mom’s Toolbox is the first part of every month and this is where some special resources or items will be listed. In September the “Private Eye” loupe and the book Global Art by Mary Ann Kohl are mentioned. Anything found in the “Mom’s Toolbox” section would be good to get your hands on for incorporation later in the lesson. Home Life and Social/Emotional is the first activity section for September and includes the activities of using balloons and a laundry basket to ‘take a hot air balloon ride,’ make a hot air balloon snack, practice your manners by saying please/thank you, clearing dishes after a meal, and planning an emergency exit plan for your home. You can tell already that not all activities will work for all ages, but that’s the beauty – you can adapt as you need to, pick-and-choose as you see fit. The book list for September includes Hot Air, A House is a House for Me, Can You Hear It, Frog and Toad, and He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Language and Literacy for September includes tactile letter practice, children developing their own story, and making a book. Math and Manipulatives include activities such as counting and swinging, making a spindle box (counting box), making shapes, a nature math book, and playing a water bottle marble game. Science and Sensory will have your little ones exploring outdoors with simple tools like magnifiers, binoculars, nature guides, etc., making a nature journal and a pendulum, cooking up a batch of herbal tea play dough and creating nature scenes, making an artistic pond, and make a nesting set using cans. Art and Music includes using chicken wire to use as a weaving loom with fabric scraps, making a painting on a long piece of butcher paper, sculpting clay tree faces, using coffee filters to create artistic reproductions, making salt and mirror art, and learning the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” Gross Motor and Outside has activities to develop ball skills and play games like Squish the bug, Hit the Hula Hoop, Wonder-Ball and running an obstacle course. Field Trip suggestions are touring the local news station or grocery store. At the end of each month is a supply list so you can see everything at a glance for easier preparation; most items will be things from around your home. A page for monthly memories and two planning pages are included at the end of the month, as well.

      Throughout each month, on every page, are photographs of the activities and children performing the tasks mentioned on the pages. Each month follows a similar format, so it’s pretty easy to get into a routine that fits your lifestyle. The Printables are on card stock and include photos, game instructions and game pieces, and other items that are mentioned during the monthly activities.

      Intended to give some guidance but not dictate the schedule, Year of Playing Skillfully can become a partner for you and your family as you begin the educational journey with your young learners. ~ Donna

    Instilling a love for science in my children was always a primary goal in our early days of home-schooling. One of my secret tools was always keeping a stack of interesting science reference books available for them to thumb through or to look up a quick question on their own (yes, this was pre-internet!), but I always struggled to find good quality books that did not overwhelm us with evolutionary content and would often lament to my husband, that it would sure be nice to have a Christian alternative to the informative Usborne or DK resource books. I am so excited to share that Master Books and My Father's World have heard the cries of many homeschool families and have joined together to provide quality science reference books that offer beautiful photographs and illustrations without the inundation of evolutionary teaching.

    Beginning with Genesis 1:1, this book introduces the scientific method, real science, fields of science and the reasons to study science and then dives into seven sections covering a wide range of scientific subjects. Section 1: Matters and Chemicals covers atoms, elements, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, melting and boiling, crystals, water, chemical changes, acids and bases and composites. Section 2: Energy, Motion and Machines presents energy, converting energy, the energy of motion, forces and motion, measuring force and motion, gravity, heat and cold, helpful machines, simple machines, machine power, friction and energy and matter. Section 3: Electricity and Magnetism contains electrical energy, static electricity, flowing electricity, electrical circuits, using electricity, magnetism, and magnetism to electricity, electricity to movement, movement to electricity plus more. Section 4: Light and Sound introduces sound waves, using sound, light, reflected and refracted light, using light, laser light and more. Section 5: Earth and Life presents planet earth, inside the earth, the rock cycle, volcanoes and earthquakes, atmosphere, weather and climate, mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes, coastlines, seas and oceans, life on earth and the earth in trouble. Section 6: Space and Time explores earth in space, exploring space, earth's orbit, magnetic earth, inner planets, solar wanderers, outer planets, the sun, stars and galaxies, deep space, and the universe.

    The last section provides over sixty projects covering topics in each of the previous six categories. Science projects contain a concise "you will need" list, clear step by step instructions, and colorful accompanying photographs. Each project also contains the reference page for further information and utilizes commonly found items. Glossary and index provide helpful reference material. hc. 247 pgs. ~ Deanne
