    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

    Primary Language Lessons is one of those engaging programs first published long ago that many have used and loved and said "if only". If only the book would lay flat. If only the course had room for the student to write. If only I didn't have to explain why "tomorrow" has a hyphen after the "o". If only there were some information about the authors and artists. If only this art print were a little clearer – or a little bigger. This newest version will sweep away all your "if onlys". And, the really good news is that none of the well-loved features of the original have disappeared. Content – right down to all the high quality art and literature – is virtually the same, except for those few updates and edits done to provide more clarity. Each lesson still introduces principals of grammar and word use through question and answer dialogue, composition, memorization, oral presentation, and dictation. There's even a few added features you might not have thought to include in your litany of "if onlys." Cute little icons have been added to each segment of the lesson to designate its purpose – read, write, memorize, copy, tell/narrate, or study. Tear-out pages in the back provide copies of all the dictation passages. Lots of lined space for all written assignments is provided. My favorite feature is the fourteen pages of biographical notes on most of the authors and artists found in the back. 258 pgs, coil-bound ~ Janice

    Once there was a little pink house built in the country on a hill with a brook and trees and lots of flowers. The little house loved watching the children play and the seasons change. She could see the lights of the city in the distance, and it made her wonder what it would be like to live there. The city grew closer and closer to the little house until it had all but swallowed her up. The little house didn't like this much; she was very sad as she daydreamed of the old days on her hill with the trees and the flowers. Will anyone save the little pink house? Will she ever get to see the trees and flowers again? 40 pgs, pb.

    Continuing the excellent phonics, reading, and language arts instruction of the LLATL Blue Program, the Red Program incorporates the same effective methodologies and teaching strategies. The user-friendly teacher's manual (Red Book) with 36 weekly lesson plans is comprehensive and thorough with little teacher preparation needed. The heftier Student Activity Book reviews skills taught in the first grade program and reinforces new skills with a similar assortment of excellent activities: word wheels, flip books, games, and cut and paste activities. More emphasis is placed on poetry, sentence structure, grammar and writing - all learned in the context of stories. Spelling is also emphasized more with weekly word lists, visual representation of words, and puzzles and games for review/reinforcement. The six readers are longer but just as engaging with soft-hued color print rather than black & white. Periodic skill assessments give the teacher the tools to decide what the student needs to review. The program includes the Red Book (teacher's manual), the Student Activity Book, and six readers. The Student Activity Book and readers are sold separately for additional students. The Read-Aloud Library is integral to the program but sold separately (or available from the library). ~ Janice

    "It's just common sense!" Actually, it's the Blue Book Common Sense Reading Program and yes, everything about this program is common sense. A very complete program organized around quality children's literature (like all LLATL programs) and covering phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" (small story book) book which uses those sounds. The literature component - carefully selected children's favorites - reminds students that the reason for all the hard work in phonics is the joy of reading wonderful books. And woven through both of these elements is comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts. Relying heavily on Ruth Beechick's principles for teaching reading (including her letter dice activities), the program includes a wide variety of activities appealing to all learning styles. The teacher's manual is a homeschooler's dream with all the work having been done for you, taking you step-by-step through the 36-week program. New skills are listed for each lesson with a materials list included at the beginning. Almost no teacher preparation is needed - you teach as you read. All answers are provided within the lesson. Higher-order thinking activities are italicized. Examples and diagrams are user-friendly including the easy-to-follow references to the Student Activity Book. Each of the four parts (readiness, short vowels, consonant blends and short vowels, and long vowels) concludes with an evaluation for determining your child's readiness for the next level. The Student Activity Book contains the materials (except for household and school supplies) needed for cut and paste, word wheels, flip books, picture sequencing, story-telling puppets, PLUS handwriting pages that teach all upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation. The comfortable, natural handwriting method that isn't exactly traditional, modern, or italic was developed by the authors. This handwriting instruction is coordinated with the phonics and includes pages for children to carefully complete and display or give as gifts.

    The Student Activity Book is consumable, even having an easy-release binding that allows for clean page removal. Even the back cover is put to good use providing the miniature book covers to be added to the personal reading chart that marks the child's progress. 28 separate readers cover short vowels, blends (bridge readers), and long vowels. They are small-sized for little hands and include black-and-white illustrations. Stories are engaging which is a good thing since a week's worth of learning activities are built around them. The student uses puppets to retell the stories, completes sequencing activities with a series of reader-related events, and answers comprehension questions. One interesting aspect of the teacher-student interaction concerning these readers is that the week's lesson starts off with the teacher reading the small book to the child. After several lessons thoroughly covering the new phonics steps and practice reading parts of the story, the student concludes the week with the successful reading of the small book. This is an effective variation of the typical approach because the goal of reading the book is always before the student. The materials packet is a useful collection of color-coded letter and word cards to use for learning and review along with cards used for reinforcement games and, of course, the letter dice (to be assembled from cardstock patterns). While this part of the program is not exactly consumable - you could use the various components again - the components do get a workout. If you are expecting to use the program with another child, you'll want to save these items and covering them with clear contact paper to preserve them would also be a good idea. The program includes the Teacher's Manual, the Student Activity Book, the 28 Readers, and the Materials Packet.

    We sell additional Student Activity Books, Reader Sets, and Material Packets so you can use the program with a second student. Well-known children's literature (Read-Aloud Library) is suggested each week, so at the same time your child is learning phonics, he is also learning other important reading skills such as literal recall, comprehension, predicting outcome, and drawing conclusions. These books are an integral part of the program and the Student Activity Book relies on them. Although usually available at the local library, for your convenience we also sell them. They are listed in order of use. Although this program focuses on first grade skills, it would be possible to use this program with a "ready" kindergartner. It would also work well with a slightly older child who is still a just-getting-started reader. ~ Janice

    "The Basics - For Beginners or Anyone Who Wants a Thorough Review." This course is a no-frills look at Spanish utilizing the conversation building-block method. Everything you need is included in this handy little pack including a Spanish-English dictionary, a coursebook, and 4 audio CD's. The coursebook is divided into 40 lessons, which are fairly short and very do-able. All the words in bold faced type are pronounced on the audio CD's so you can learn the correct pronunciation. Notes scattered generously throughout the lessons explain pronunciation, rules and other information. Most lessons include one or two quizzes for you to practice what you've learned. The quizzes are generally formatted with matching exercises where you match Spanish phrases to English phrases and fill-in-the-blank with multiple choices of Spanish words to fill in a Spanish phrase (the English version of the word is next to the blank in parentheses). Answers are easily accessible at the end of each quiz section. The included Spanish-English dictionary is comprised of over 20,000 of the most frequently used Spanish words and the audio CD's contain over 3 hours of recorded material. This course has been recently updated and changes include the addition of 18 supplemental vocabulary sections and updated references including e-mail etiquette and Internet resources. ~ Megan

    Memoria Press has a knack for giving parents the confidence to tackle heavy literature with their children. This is done by providing background historical information on the authors and their time period as well as historical material relevant to the literature itself. Do a little studying in here before teaching the lessons and you should be able to answer your kids' questions like a professor!

    Horatius at the Bridge is a story from ancient Rome, so it would be a great addition to any study of ancient culture or even a Latin language program. I like to see stories added to language studies. It gives the words some context about the people who speak it (or in the case of Latin, spoke it.) This story is a ballad or poem format. Parents are guided on meter and pronunciation. Each verse has a summary and characters are explained. There are lesson plans to follow. Hard names and words are spelled out phonetically and defined alongside the poem itself. This saves a lot of time with a dictionary.

    In the back is a study guide for students. Comprehension questions are in sections and have plenty of space for kids to write their answers here. Some exercises are matching vocabulary words to synonyms, but most require a sentence or two to answer. There are maps of the various Roman regions, a glossary of ancient place names and their modern equivalents, and a comprehensive test with 19 questions that require kids to write one or two sentence answers. A complete answer key to the study guide questions and the test are in the back. Not reproducible. 75 pgs, pb ~ Sara

    iPhones… Texting… Facebook… Our culture today is always talking, so why does it seem so hard to actually communicate? It doesn't have to be difficult, but sometimes families need a little help to get conversational skills working well. Each of the 90 cards in this set from Queen Homeschool includes three questions or conversation starters to spark discussion and help family members get to know one another better. Here's an example: What do you like best about your home? What do you like least about your home? What are you willing to help change about your home that you think needs changed? One card is included with a recommendation on how to use the set. –Chad

    For students taking a class or in a co-op with a teacher, this workbook with audio CD would make a good supplement. It would be most helpful to a student who is familiar with basic Chinese characters. If you do not have access to someone familiar enough with the language, this set would be best used as a supplement rather than a curriculum. I had a little trouble finding where I was on the CD because everything is in the target language. I did get the hang of it though with a little practice. For introducing culture, the book suggests adding movies. Students will be introduced to new words, phrases & sentences systematically by building on students' prior knowledge. The content has beginner vocabulary and phrases and covers what most foreign language courses cover in the first year. However, I would not count this as a high school credit; it is a workbook. The author, professor Jasmine Tang has 30 years of teaching experience. Includes 24 lessons, a writing exercise and a glossary. pp, sc. ~ Sara

    Hola Susy! Hola Tucan! Native Peruvian Susy Dorn and her puppet friends introduce your child to the sounds of Espagnol in this very cute and engaging immersion program. There is a LOT of material in this box! You are getting 2 complete series (a blue and a green.) The time frame it takes you to complete each series will depend on how frequently you use it and for how long at a time. You could do 10 minutes a day for 3 days a week, and it would probably take about a semester per series. I recommend repeating lessons to help the content stick. Topics covered include colors, letters, numbers, weekdays, months, shapes, time, hygiene, planets, animals and other early learning foundational material.

    Each series has two fun and interactive DVDs. Susy and her puppet friends teach basic vocabulary with questions and answers. Each video has 10 segments. Many of the repetition of words is set to a light drum beat. A full color 42-page handbook shows all of the vocabulary and song lyrics with brightly colored illustrations. A coloring book gives students another opportunity to interact with the vocabulary. Have children say the words as they color and tell you what they mean in English. A DVD of original songs starring Suzy and friends has either 20 or 23 songs each. The songs correspond to the vocabulary in the lessons. The audio CDs each have 20 songs from the DVD of original songs that you can listen to in the car or load them onto a child's mp3 player for portability.

    So you are getting all of this material times two! Each set has the same format but with different segments and vocabulary. After completing both the blue and green series', your child will have gained a strong working knowledge of over 500 useful words and phrases and will have been exposed to over 2,500 common Spanish words and phrases. Susy's spoken Spanish is not babyish and neither is the pace. Rather, she is very expressive and funny! She uses simple hand puppets of cute animals and a couple of people. The set includes a toucan finger puppet, the proceeds which help the street children of Lima, Peru. I think kids would have fun making the little toucan speak Spanish. While this is not an inexpensive program, there is a lot of material that will teach the language in a variety of ways-- from music, video, and dancing, to repeating, drumming and laughing. ~ Sara
