    The cool thing about web design is that it is handy skill regardless of your child’s future career path. Whether they start their own business or work for a Fortune 500 company, a firm grasp of web programming and design is sure to give them an edge over individuals who do not.  This course, from the folks at Homeschool Programming, was created for students starting from the ground up and will give them a good knowledge of HTML, XHTML, HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. It contains two courses (Beginning & Advanced Web Design), and combines them into a single year-long online course.

    As someone who has learned the basics of HTML, I appreciate that Beginning Web Design starts with the very basics. The student will learn what the internet is, how it works, and how URLs, mark-up language, and browsers function. Chapter lessons provide a lot of information, although it is very readable, friendly and is accompanied by screen-shots, tables, and graphics. Eager fingers will then hit the keyboard with the “Work with Me” step-by-step assignments and “Your Turn” activities which reinforce the information in the lesson. In a truly hands-on approach, students start on their first web site by the end of Chapter 3! As students progress, they apply the concepts they have learned to this ever-developing example web site featuring birds of prey. By the end of Beginning Web Design, they’ll be ready to jump the nest themselves, creating their own website (on a topic of their choice) for the final project. Don’t let the “Advanced” title on the second course scare you – it’s just the next step. Chapter One starts with a quick refresher on HTML and CSS, then it’s off to HTML5, headers and footers, adding video and audio content, learning CSS3, relationship selectors, dynamic menus, JavaScript, and dynamic pages all while building a website on sea creatures. Wow, at this point, I really want to use this course! It looks so approachable compared to the other basic web design books gathering dust on my shelf! Although there’s not much competition (that I am aware of) in homeschool web design courses, this one is a solid choice whether your student is naturally tech-savvy or not. – Jess

    It all looks just like I remember it! Four trees full of small, stemmed cherries, bucket spots for picked cherries, and a spinner marked with 1, 2, 3, or 4 cherries plus a cherry-snatching bird and dog, and an upset bucket. A child doesn't even need to be able to count to ten to play this adorable "first" game. Play is simple and quick (about 15-30 minutes); just spin and follow the pictures, adding cherries from the tree to the bucket or putting them from the bucket back onto the tree. First one to get all his tree's cherries into his bucket wins. Three generations and counting in our family – I wonder how many future generations will play? For 2-4 Players.

    This mini balance provides hands-on instruction in addition and subtraction, and could even be used for equations involving multiplication/division. For addition and subtraction concepts, you can begin by hanging the blue weights in various yellow-peg positions on one side, and balancing the sum on the other side. So, for example, if you hang a blue weight in the 10-position on one side, you can create balance by hanging a blue weight in the 6- and 4-position on the other side (6 + 4 = 10). Students can think through and try all the possible combinations that could work, not limiting themselves to only two weights on the one side. That will keep them busy for a while, and you may want to have them write down their answers in logical order to make sure they haven't overlooked any possibilities. Subtraction follows, as students try to determine where the missing blue weight should go (10 – 4 = ?). Multiplication occurs when multiple weights occupy a certain peg (2 weights at the 2 position is 2 x 2 = 4, so one weight in the 4-position on the other side creates a balanced equation). Your equations can get even more complicated: what if you have a 3 and a 4 on one side and three 2's on the other? What do you need to add to make it balance, and where? The scale is not super precise in its ability to be perfectly calibrated, but little plastic weights are provided so that the calibrated accuracy will be sufficient for your purposes. ~ Caryl

    You better have nimble fingers and a quick, calculating mind if you hope to win this rambunctious math card game! The deck is composed of 73 cards, each of which has a large yellow number (ranging from 1-10) on the center, and a 1, 2, or 3 in the corner. The cards are shuffled, the top card is turned over in the center of the table and the rest of the cards are dealt evenly into each player's draw pile. Players must draw one card at a time into their hand and play them on the center pile as quickly as they can. There is no limit to how many cards they can hold in their hand, but they must draw them individually. If the card in the middle is a '6' with a 2 in the corners, players may play either a '4' or an '8'. If addition or subtraction results in a number greater or less than ten, ten can be added or subtracted to the number to put it back in the 1-10 range [e.g. if it is a '9' with a 3, 9 + 3 = 12, 12 - 10 = 2 so a two could be played, or a 6 (9 3 = 6)]. The first player to run out of cards is the winner. So put away that calculator (you won't have time to use it!) and get that brain racing for the win! 2-4 players, game time is about 5-10 minutes. Cards are stored in a handy travel case. ~ Megan

    Geometry meets Chess meets Math; that's the best way to describe this intense strategy game. Each player begins with 10 geometric shapes, such as Cubes, Cones, Pyramids, etc. These pieces all have three traits associated with them: Volume, Area, and Flat Surfaces. These are ranked in order from "most" to "least"; higher-ranked pieces capture lower-ranked pieces. So, while Squares may have the largest volume for their size, Cones have the largest area, and the Dodecahedron has the most flat surfaces. But the trait used to determine "piece strength" changes over the course of the game; for example, if the strength changes from Area to Flat surfaces, a Cone will drop from Rank 1 (most powerful) to Rank 8 (least powerful) in the blink of an eye! Players also receive two "special" shapes: the Sphere and the Helix. The Helix trumps all other pieces, while the Sphere is trumped by all other pieces. Piece by piece, players move one or two spaces across the board capturing and avoiding other players' pieces until their (defenseless!) sphere reaches the center of the board. The first person to do so wins the game. While the primary focus of this game is strategy, players will pick up a quick-reference knowledge of shapes & geometry along the way. For 2-4 players; 45 minutes.

    This lighthearted book contains sixteen math riddles that follow the same format as The Grapes of Math but are geared towards a slightly younger age group. For each riddle, a certain number of illustrated objects are grouped together in different ways. The riddle then tells a quick and easy trick to count the items. The riddles and counting pages are fun and colorful and deal with different themes including animals and holidays. The math tricks that are given in the riddles are explained in further detail in the back of the book. The answers are included so students can check their own answers. This book does a great job of teaching strategies for faster and easier counting in a fun way. ~ Rachel S.

Each section includes a broad summary and provides three activities for the student to practice comprehension of the subject matter (one of the activities in each section requires further internet research). Although this book is not designed to supply a highly detailed study of the subject of economics, it is aptly named and will provide a general yet solid understanding of basic economics. Workbook is consumable and reproducible. Answers are provided. ~ Enh

    This hefty high school curriculum, newly revised in 2016, was designed to train girls to become godly women, based on Proverbs 31:10-31. The goal of the curriculum is to help Christian girls develop their skills and abilities for optimal service to the Lord within the family setting: a preparation for all the duties of an adult life. The guide's beginning elaborates on the program's philosophies and then discusses four learning styles as well as the Six R's of education (adds Research, Responsibility and Righteousness to the traditional three). The author assumes that students have a good basic mastery of Math and English grammar, as well as a good reading ability. In addition, these courses are written for mature young people., there are reproducible forms for planning and record keeping. (It is highly recommended that your daughter plan or at least help to plan her own lessons.) The forms included are a Goal Planning Checklist, High-School report Card, Lesson Planning Sheet, and a High School Cumulative Record Card. (This sheet will become the high school transcript for any student wishing to proceed on to college.) The curriculum guide is broken up into 20 different units (10 in Volume 1 and 10 in Volume 2). Each unit focuses on a different verse or verse group from Proverbs 31. Then, this unit is broken down into thematic mini units. Subjects covered are Bible and Christian Character, Cultural Studies, Reading and Literature, Composition, Math and Personal Finance, Science, Health and Physical Fitness, Practical Arts, and Decorative and Performing Arts. In each subject area within a unit, this curriculum guide gives a list of lessons for girls to choose from and complete. Since activities are provided for the four learning styles, there are more activities in the guide than can be completed in 4 years. The materials are written directly to the students, as they are encouraged to take responsibility for their own education. Each lesson assigns suggested point value (largely based on Carnegie units), so when an activity is completed you can easily total the points and convert them into High School credits. The guide also provides detailed instructions about how best to use the program, lists essential materials for the course, and recommends supplementary courses. Essential materials for the course are a Bible, concordance, dictionary, encyclopedia, hymnbooks, an English grammar book, and a writing style book). The list of strongly suggested materials is more extensive. Far Above Rubies was created to stand on its own, although the lessons call for reading and using a number of other books, such as Writer's Inc., the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, Understanding the Times, and more. At the end of each volume, there is an updated, detailed list of recommended resources (and corresponding Web locations for more information), many of which we also offer in our catalog. Also included for each volume are some cross-reference guides to help you locate specific lessons based on chronology or theme and a "25 Ways to Have Fun with Book Reports" chart. Please note that although the guide self-proclaims that it is not necessarily against college and career goals for young ladies, they admit that this is not the primary aim of this guide. Consequently, if your daughter plans on attending college or becoming a career woman, you will need to supplement her curriculum with some college-preparatory math and science (specific suggestions are offered). However, this curriculum does still provide the college-bound with a well-rounded base, and it also offers a number of business and vocational skills. Help prepare your daughters using the model provided in Proverbs 31. Includes Beautiful Girlhood Audiobook and 7 bonus e-books: Friendship, Friendship Notebook pages, Girls in Bookland, Nest in the Honeysuckles, The Merchant Maiden, The Basket of Flowers, and The Value of a Praying Mom. The curriculum is only available in PDF format on CD-ROM. Requires Adobe Reader, a free download. Revised edition, 2016. Win/Mac ~ Rachel/Ruth.

    Learning the keyboard is imperative for today's student. Take your typing course to the next level with this 34-week course. Weekly lessons follow a similar format: a classroom or group lesson (parents can read through this lesson with their children) and four daily practice lessons. Practice lessons have the student review the material from the group lesson in daily increments followed by 10-20 minutes of typing practice per day. The author recommends a simple text editor like Microsoft Notepad®, Microsoft Wordpad® or Apple Textedit® (free with your computer operating system) for practice. These programs do not include spell checkers or auto correct features that will cover mistakes and prevent the student from learning correctly.

    The first weekly lesson in the textbook is critical to success. Covering the differences between typing and keyboarding, various keys, the QWERTY keyboard, correct typing posture along and more, the first week ends with a baseline 3-minute typing test. I appreciate the focus on correct hand position and sitting posture as a preventative measure against carpal tunnel syndrome. Lessons cover nearly every aspect of the computer keyboard. Here is just a sample of the skills learned: the space bar and enter key; home row, the letter keys, punctuation and special keys, shift key/caps lock key, practice with typing common words including articles, conjunctions, helping verbs, pronouns and prepositions, learning to use the numeric key pad, tabs/text alignment, typing a friendly letter or business letter, making a certificate of completion plus many others. Complete table of contents is available on our website. Keyboard shortcuts are covered in the appendix. Each lesson focuses on 3-4 letters before advancing to more complicated keys and skills which allows for mastery of material. Students needing more practice can review the practice lessons as necessary, as the suggested practice time is flexible to meet individual student needs.

    A timed typing test is included with every even-numbered lesson to assess student progress. Timed tests begin as one minute tests and progress in length to five minutes by the end of the course. A keyboarding speed progress chart is available at the back of the book to measure progress.

    You may wonder how this course compares to the author's Keyboarding for Homeschoolers -Summer Text? The complete content (13 lessons) from the Summer Text are repeated in this course. Additionally, this course provides more instruction on various special keys like the colon, apostrophe, question marks, brackets, tab key and text alignment, along with additional practice typing commonly used suffixes, helping verbs, pronouns, and prepositions and typing a friendly or business letter. This one year course provides more depth and practice, although some students may do well with a quick summer overview followed by time spent teaching themselves the additional keys and skills for keyboarding aptitude.

    All in all, this is a fully developed, systematic typing course that will provide your high schooler an elective credit on his transcript. It is worth mentioning that the course focuses on memorization of the keyboard through practice on a covered keyboard. A mini-keyboard with color-coded keys is a recommended resource and the author has included a reproducible copy in the textbook. Unfortunately, the color-coded keys are not well distinguished in the black and white graphic. I would recommend printing a keyboard with color-coded keys (coded for finger use) from the internet rather than using the included graphic. Whether college or workforce bound, keyboarding is a valuable skill that our young people need for success and this well-organized, easy to use course may provide them everything necessary for success.
