    The British world has a dramatic and fascinating past, and nothing brings that to light more than details about Britain's various monarchs. Beginning with early Saxon and Danish rulers even before 1066, the book takes you on a mesmerizing journey through the reigns of all the kings and queens. Chapters cover early rulers, the Normans, the Plantagenets, the House of Lancaster, the Tudors, the Stuarts, the Hanovarians, the House of Winsor and Scottish Kings & Queens. For every ruler, the book gives quick, encyclopedia-style information about the ruler's birth, reign, and death, as well as important events during their reign and what they are most remembered for. Colorful sketches, reproductions of classic art featuring the rulers or periods, maps, photographs, relics, and other graphics are used liberally and add a lot of interest and information to the book. A running timeline is also included on the bottom of every page so you can see events at a glance. Besides information about the monarchs, small captions noting important happenings during that period are also included. The book runs chronologically through the decades, covering everything from the seemingly endless number of medieval kings who killed family members for the throne to Oliver Cromwell's attempt at republicanism in the mid 1600s to George VI's morale-boosting trips during WWII to the reign of Elizabeth II (including the death of Princess Diana).

      Combine picture study with number practice and you get a gentle introduction to number formation and recognition for your younger set. Introduce children to numbers 0-9 with a colorful photo each week and plenty of room to write their practice numbers. On day one, point out the new number (weekly) and have the child copy it; review the photo on day two and have the child do the activity/copywork for that day; repeat this procedure for days 3, 4, and 5. Day two copywork is writing the number several times on individual lines. Day three is copying the number on one continual line; day four is drawing a picture of that number of objects and writing the number once, and day five might be counting and writing or circling and writing. The format is simple and the book can be finished in ten weeks, preparing young children for the next steps of writing and numbers. 54 pgs., p/b. ~ Donna

     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).

    Or, in home school language: a literature-based unit study. This one uses some of my very favorite children's picture books (see list below). For each of the 18 books, there's a story summary and a "before the story", "during the story" and "after the story" suggestion. A helpful shaded box points out themes, skills, vocabulary, and related books. This is followed by "connections" to curriculum areas including: language arts, math, science, problem-solving and social skills, fine motor, gross motor, visual discrimination, art, and creative dramatics. Reproducible activity pages are provided for some of these. This is great for preschool, as you can center one or several days around these books, themes and activities – even an entire week if you integrate the related literature selections. As an example, for If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, emphasized themes are: being a good host, patience, real and fantasy. Skills focused on are making predictions, alphabet, counting, biology, and manners. Special vocabulary is carried away, comfortable, finished, mustache, remind. Related books include If You Take a Mouse to School and If You Give a Moose a Muffin. Before reading the book, you ask your child to predict what might happen if they gave a mouse a cookie and relate that to what they do when they get a cookie. During the story, you take advantage of the many "cliffhangers" in the book, allowing children to guess at the sentence endings before turning the page. After the story, the author suggests additional readings (this is because children have such fun with the outlandish turns of events – most stories have other activities in this section). There are two Language Arts Connections; one is playing with magnetic letters on a cookie sheet (related to the drawn red letters and cookies on the book cover); the other is to make alphabet cookies (sounds yummy!). For a math activity, there's a reproducible page for children to match the chocolate chip cookies with the same number of chips. Science Connections have you researching what mice really eat. If you have access to a mouse, the book suggests experimenting with various foods. If not, you'll have to settle for using another book, using the internet, or visiting a pet store. In Problem-Solving and Social Skills Connections, children practice being good hosts or hostesses. You can play the mouse and let your child entertain you (tea party, anyone)? Then, as the mouse does in the story, children practice fine motor skills by drawing pictures of a scene from the book or of their family as the mouse does. Children practice writing their names (using tracing paper), tape it to the artwork, and then to the refrigerator, just like mouse. For Gross Motor Connections, you again mimic the mouse, this time in sweeping and cleaning (remember, the mouse got carried away and swept the entire house!). The book suggests supplementing with a little house-sweeping music of your choice. In Art Connections, children construct Barbershop Portraits as you reread the book, paying special attention to the part where mouse trims his hair. Children paste long strands of yarn to self-portraits for hair (deliberately making the hair in need of a trim). After the glue dries, children use safety scissors to "cut" their hair to a desired length. In Creative Dramatics Connections children practice proper mealtime manners. After rereading the section of the book where mouse asks for a straw and a napkin with his cookie snack, you provide yourself and your child(ren) with paper plates, empty cups and straws, and napkins. Then you pretend to be a group of mice, eating cookies and drinking milk, demonstrating how to eat a cookie over your plate, use your napkin and drink properly with a straw. If children do well, follow through with real cookies and milk then show children how to clean up after the meal. A final reproducible page has children color the pictures that show how someone in the family takes care of them (also great as a discussion starter).

       True humility is expressed vertically and horizontally: vertically in our relationship with God and horizontally in our relationships with others. Beginning with our relationship with God, this study guides children through what it means to be God’s workmanship and valued by Him; what it means to honor and glorify God; authority; and prayer prior to obeying and honoring parents; sin; and practical application of humility toward others including table manners, interruption rule, giving preference to others and respecting the time and property of others. Guide contains 11 sections (chapters) with end of the section review and final exam (no answers included). Black and white graphics reflective of simpler times. Requires KJV Bible and dictionary of your choice. From Queen Homeschool. SC. 83 pgs. ~ Deanne
