    A collection of 180 (one for each day of the typical school year) quick activities to teach, practice, and/or review commonly confused and misused words. Many homophones such as aisle/I'll/isle, boar/boor/bore, and their/there/they're as well as similar sounding word pairs like elicit/illicit and descent/dissent are covered. Additionally, several lessons on proper word choice are provided. Simple exercises will teach your child when to use (among others) fewer as opposed to less, literally instead of figuratively, and among instead of between. Although the provided exercises simply involve selecting the correct word to complete the sentence, each lesson includes an additional writing exercise suggestion. ~ Enh

    Want a game you can take on the go and play for five minutes or as long as you'd like? Then toss this one in your purse. The cute little square box holds 78 letter cards and instructions. Each round, you pull out three cards, decide on the direction you want to play and then race to be the first to use those three letters in order in a word. So if you set out an "M," "S" and "H" and play left-to-right, you could say "mash" or "misshapen," or if you play right-to-left, you could yell out "handsome." The first one to say a valid word wins the cards, and the player with the most cards wins! Play solo or with as many other players as you'd like! Jess

       Have you ever wanted to sit and soak in the wisdom of an expert in treating learning difficulties? As a parent or educational specialist, you know the children in your care are bright and capable, yet learning is hard for them. If you ever wondered if you can do more to help your struggling learner, this DVD series may have the answers you are seek.

      Designed for Special Ed teachers, literacy teachers, home-educators, tutors and others with a special interest to help children, Dianne Craft’s 10+ hour seminar series explains the brain research behind many learning glitches (disabilities), gives you the tools to identify processing glitches, and plan a program to correct blocked learning gates. She also provides effective strategies and lesson plans through the 9 sessions in this video seminar. Sessions include:

      Session 1: Identifying Your Child’s Processing Problems provides the foundational understanding of the four learning gates and signs of blocked learning gates. Right and Left Brain learning traits are also clarified. A 3-prong approach is provided to correct blocked learning gates.

      Session 2: Dysgraphia: When Writing is Painful discusses the signs of writing stress and compares it to a child who may appear lazy or uncooperative. Visual-Spatial problems are also explained before she expands on activities to correct dysgraphia. Mrs. Craft stresses that progress may be seen in as little as 3 months; however, a minimum of 6 months is necessary for full benefit. Includes step by step, Daily Writing “Eight” Exercise instructions and the daily lesson plan for struggling writer and speller.

      Session 3: Right Brain Paragraph and Composition Writing addresses the “loose thought patterns” experienced by children and teens who suffer with dysgraphia, ADD or Auditory Processing problems. A simple formula of baby steps, right brain webbing and modeling are easy to implement at home and have proven successful with reluctant, struggling writers. Includes directions for beginning, intermediate and advanced skill levels, along with writing tools for parent/teacher guidance.

      Session 4: Right Brain Math is dedicated to all the children who forget math from day to day. Teaching a “Plan B” for struggling math students, Mrs. Craft provides helpful, detailed information on right brain strategies for effective learning of math concepts. These strategies will work with any math curriculum. Includes math tutoring instructions.

      Session 5: Training Your Child’s Photographic Memory (for Spelling) provides a right brain teaching strategies that work for struggling spellers-regardless of brain dominance. Considered a “Plan B” for spellers, this DVD teaches a photographic memory method which may be valuable throughout life. Includes information to access a 1200 Most Commonly Used Words list.

      Session 6: Dyslexia and Other Reading Problems explores why reading is hard for some kids. With a focus on children at least 2 years behind in reading, Mrs. Craft explains the levels of processing problems, and differentiates dyslexia from visual and auditory processing disorders, and general reading dysfunctions. She then elaborates on the keys to correcting reading problems: Correct and Bypass. Includes daily lesson plans and a quick word recognition spelling test. Also, recommended for correction of reading problems are the Brain Integration Therapy Manual and Right Brain Phonics materials and basal readers.

      Session 7: Kids and Teenagers with Focus/Attention Issues takes a fascinating look at how our diet and antibiotic use may appear as symptoms of sensory dysfunction and focus/attention issues. She also explores the big question- “Is it character or chemistry?” and provides simple checklists of behavioral and physical characteristics. Dietary changes and nutritional supplementation recommendations are recommended.

      Session 8: Auditory Process Problems reviews common myths before teaching the characteristics that impact reading, spelling and math. Covering common physical causes (allergies, nutritional deficiencies), Mrs. Craft shares ways to bypass and correct auditory channels issues at home.

      Session 9: Autism, Asperger’s and Sensory Processing Problems looks at the increasing prevalence of autism in the U.S., traditional treatment and causation theories. Mrs. Craft recommends a 3-pronged approach to unlock the abilities of Autistic children, with a focus on nutrition in this session. She provides the foundational knowledge you need to identify, treat and restore the underlying biochemical disorder that may cause or exacerbate autistic symptoms. 

      Overall, this series is tremendously beneficial for parents and educators alike. There are a couple of disappointments. First, the DVDs are recordings of workshop sessions presented to a large group. Therefore, some graphics are difficult to see or have been updated to fit the DVD presentation. On one occasion, Mrs. Craft and her assistant are showing how to do the Circle Eight Exercises correctly and are partially blocked by the podium. The accompanying Study Guide is jam-packed with helpful information; however, at times is difficult to follow along with the presentations. As my colleagues and I viewed the videos, we elected to take notes during the sessions and read the study guide after the session. While there is no Biblical teaching, Mrs. Craft makes comments about our children being “God-made”, the value of prayer in helping our struggling learners and “God as our Supreme Being.” DVDs range from 45-90 minutes. CEUs or course completion certifications are also available. ~ Deanne

      As you zoom through the 60 circular cards, you’re competing to be the first to think of a word that fits the criteria. One side of each card shows letters; the other shows a category. Flip over the top card and match one of three letter colors with the color of the category card that’s next on the stack. Name an item in the given category that starts with that letter, such as “a food that starts with C.” If you’re the first to name one, you win that card. The winner is the one with the most cards after the stack is gone. A shuffle of the deck ensures that the letters/categories are new for the next game. Ten different categories range from movies/TV to countries or plants. 2-6 players, 15 minutes play, packaged in a storage tin.

    Just the right stuff! That's what you'll be thinking as you use this warm and inviting reading program from Memoria Press. The Study Guides are really a worktext (horizontal orientation) that provides the student with vocabulary and comprehension worksheets. The teacher needs to take a quick peek at two pages at the beginning that give the plan for the Word Study, Read, Comprehension, and Language (introductory grammar) segments of each lesson. The Just For Fun section is self-explanatory. There's writing involved (7/16" lines with dotted midline) but the top binding makes it easy for either right-handed students or lefties. The StoryTime guide covers five classic children's books in 16 lessons. More StoryTime provides another 16 lessons and seven children's books. ~ Janice

    Kids will easily pick up their states, capitals, and U.S. geography as they yell, slap cards down, and use their quick-thinking skills to win state cards and put an impossibly scrambled-up United States back to rights. Each player receives 5 State Cards to create their own "State Line", along with a U.S. map. Then, as a Scramble card is uncovered, players race to fit one of their states to the Scramble card, with clues such as matching the color of the state to the Scramble card, or finding words or names within the state capital. Each of the state cards contains the name of the state, a state outline map, the capital city as well as the state nickname, and, of course, any of this information is fair game to be matched with a Scramble card. When a player is able to match one of their State cards with a Scramble card, they immediately slap it down on the Scramble card and yell out the name of the state. Or, a "Go the Distance" card is played, and the players have to determine which of them has a state that is the closest to that in question, and of course, if they have the lucky card, more slapping and yelling goes on. The game can be played with 2-4 players, and several variations are included to keep it challenging for players of all ages. Loud, noisy, and boisterous as it is, there's plenty of hidden motivations here for them to pick up vital information about each state - and remember it! - Jess

    Homeschool teachers will go to great lengths to help their students overcome difficulties. Take Beverly Adams-Gordon, for example. An engineer and Montessori teacher, she left her teaching job to homeschool in an effort to solve her youngest daughter's severe spelling problems. Finding no suitable material, she thoroughly researched the subject and developed her own spelling curriculum.

    So what is different?

    • * It's all in one book. One purchase for all years for all kids.
    • * A chapter on research details the most effective methods of spelling instruction.
    • * Complete instructions for introducing, implementing and evaluating the program. Directions are given for adapting to different learning styles and ages.
    • * The program takes only 15 minutes/day.
    • * Extensive Word Lists are based on research done after 1979 of most frequently used and misspelled words. Word lists used in most other programs are based on lists created in 1915 or 1947. Two lists are provided, with 5,000 and 12,000 words, respectively.
    • * General and specific placement tests start each student right where he needs to be.
    • * Program is based on phonics and spelling rules, not phonics alone.
    • * Review is built into the program which uses a "spiral" approach (repeated and spaced review) similar to the approach Saxon takes in it's problem sets.
    • * Directions for over 100 games and activities are included which concentrate on specific skills and make spelling more interesting. Most are individual or partner games, but some can be played by up to 6 players.

    This popular book by Jane Straus is both a reference guide for the rules of grammar and punctuation, but also a workbook that provides exercises to review those rules. The first 60 pages of the book contain the most common rules of grammar and punctuation. Topics include subject and verb agreement, pronouns, modifying parts of speech, problems with prepositions, fragments, commas, semicolons, parentheses, hyphens, dashes, capitalization, writing numbers, and much more-basically all the grammar rules you need to know in high school and college. The middle section of the book has over 60 pages of rules for commonly confused words like who vs. whom, that vs. which, good vs. well, etc. Along with each rule, there are one or two examples so students can see the rule put into practice. The final part of the book contains numerous quizzes (2 sets of exercises for each grammar topic or punctuation mark), as well as a grammar pretest, a grammar mastery test, and a punctuation, capitalization and writing numbers pretest and mastery test. The pretest and mastery tests given are great for before and after evaluation, and the exercises for each topic ensure that students know how to use the rules they are learning. Exercises generally prompt students to find errors in sentences, rewrite sentences, pick the correct word for the sentence, or identify parts of a sentence. These review methods are probably more effective at incorporating the rules into real life than multiple choice or matching exercises found in other books. Answers for all the exercises are included in the book. This is a great quick reference book with effective tests and exercises, and it is also well organized, practical, and easy-to-use. Reproducible. 201 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

       The Teacher Guide is a combination book. It is part teacher book, with some course instructional information, detailed daily lesson plans, an overview of the activities built into the student worksheets, teaching tips for struggling learners, supply lists, suggestions for special projects, and answers for student worksheets. Information for the teacher (about 10% of the book) includes a section on the importance of narration and words of encouragement from the publisher. The remainder of the book is student worksheets (which are reproducible for your own homeschooling family). These worksheets provide the heart of a student’s journal to accompany the course. Very nicely designed and well-illustrated, there are daily front-and-back worksheets. These are similar but appropriately different for each age level between the two series. The whole TG is three-hole punched, and for the record, there are no tests in either series.

      America’s Story worksheets include Draw-Write pages (journaling lines, space for sketching, copywork), Mini-Project pages (cut & glue projects), Written Narration pages, Timeline pages (cards for each chapter with space for students to create their own timeline), a Special Prayer Book (a cut apart book for writing a weekly prayer for his/her country), and Artist Study (quick introduction to an artist with a variety of related art activities). Mapwork and vocabulary study are also a featured part of these pages.

    This book by Michael Driscoll introduces young students to poetry and famous poets in a way they will find interesting and fun. The first part of the book describes the various types of poetry like nursery rhymes, villanelle, limerick, narrative verse, ballad, sonnet, free verse, and more. Each type of poem is described quickly and clearly, and then the book contains famous examples of that type of poem. Kids can either read the poems themselves, or play the accompanying CD when prompted. The audio CD includes all the poems in the book read alternately by a man and a woman with pleasant voices. Colorful boxes tell readers when to play a track on the CD, as well as sharing extra information about the poems or their authors. "Words for the Wise" boxes are included on each page, defining words in the poems that children may not be familiar with. "If You're a Poet, You Should Know It" boxes are also included throughout the book, with vocabulary words related to poetry defined (like stanza, alliteration, etc.). After all the types of poetry are introduced, explained, and exampled, the second half of the book is dedicated to famous poets. A quick biography of each poet is included and then excerpts from that person's poetry are shared. These excerpts (sometimes full poems) are also included on the CD. Text boxes on the pages give a summary of the poems and explain confusing parts. Fun, colorful, little drawings accompany these poems (as well as those earlier in the book) and add to the charm of the book. Homer, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickinson, Kipling, Sandburg, Heaney, Angelou, and many more are included in this section of the book. Overall, 64 famous poems are included in the book (and on the CD). With the easy-to-understand explanations and numerous examples, young students will be grasping and enjoying poetry in no time. Book includes a listing of all 64 tracks on the CD and measures 10.25" x 10.25". 96 pages, hc. ~ Rachel

    Do you ever get tired of reading interesting books, but having to weed out all the praise of the "evolutionary process" and how it is responsible for God's wonderful creations? Well, that won't be a worry here! Written by Christian authors, this book offers wonderful photographs and tons of information on some of the world's most magnificent animals. Not just full of facts, the book is quick to point out all of the unique and useful points of each animal and show how creation cannot conform to an evolutionary mindset. The introduction puts readers who believe in Creation at ease as the authors point out how God's hand is all over in creation, use Bible verses, and point out several areas in which evolution is full of flaws. Then, thirty different animals are discussed - each receiving a two-page spread for a beautiful photograph and a page of fascinating information and some quick facts. A glossary in the back gives definitions for some of the words, and an appendix shows off the animal tracks. This is one book you can read to your kids (or have them read on their own at a slightly older level), in conjunction with a science course or just for fun, without having to think about omitting information! ~ Megan

    Who among us couldn't use a little help as we try to parent our children according to God's Word. Parenting is a calling, and children are a blessing, so we want to perform the task in the wisest way possible but sometimes we get caught up in the daily and forget our real purpose. Paul Tripp has written this book to help parents refocus and reorient, and find the joy in parenting. His goal is to give parents a "big gospel parenting worldview."

    In many books you might skip the introduction and go straight to chapter one, but please don't do that in this book. The introduction of this book is titled "Ambassadors." Do you parent with an ownership or an ambassador attitude? As owners, we are driven by what we want for our children and what we want them to be. But as ambassadors, we parent according to the will and plan of God. After talking through the differences in several different areas, the author then goes through fourteen chapters, areas in which we are to exhibit an ambassador attitude calling, grace, law, inability, identity, process, lost, authority, foolishness, character, false gods, control, rest, and mercy.

    This book doesn't offer any quick fixes or strategies, but a big picture of what parenting should look like. It is intended to "give you a new way of thinking and responding to everything on your plate as a parent." 216 pgs., h/c. ~ Donna

    A word-guessing game in which teams compete against each other’s time until one team is too slow? This could be interesting! In Smash Talk, it’s all about speed: clue givers draw a card with 5 words on it, such as “Carnival”, “Fog”, “Reptile”, “Tube”, and “Tuesday.” Once they press the timer, it’s game on as they rush to give verbal clues for each word to their team! When finished, they press the timer again (though it really is more of a “smash” as the title suggests), and it records their time. The second team must then beat their time. If they do, play continues with team 1, until one team is too slow and they lose the round! The first team to win 3 rounds wins the game. It sounds simple, but can you keep up with the pressure as the time available gets oh-so shorter? For 4+ players.

    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.

       How often have you heard or used the excuse, “I just don’t have time to do a daily devotion.” This little devotion book, “Three Little Words,” does away with that excuse. Written by a Christian parent, this devotional reminds us to “put God first,” “do your best,” and “just be yourself” – good advice put into three-word phrases. That’s what this book does – each day there is a three-word phrase supported by three Bible verses (quotation and reference) – no additional information or guidance. Each devotion is a simple read, and takes very little time – so no excuses for not fitting in a daily devotion.

      All scripture quotes are RSV, NKJV, KJV, and NIV. “Put God First,” Exodus 20:1-3, Matthew 6:33, Mark 12:29-32; “Do Your Best,” 1 Corinthians 10:31, Matthew 5:16, 2 Corinthians 8:10-11; “Just Be Yourself,” 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 1 Corinthians 7:20 & 24, Proverbs 26:4. Keeping it simple helps you to remember the thought for the day and relay that thought to your children and to others around you. 256 pgs., pb. ~ Donna

    Quick! What do a pen and a squid have in common? Hopefully, this wasn't an association you had to ink much about! Each player starts the game with an equal deck of cards beside them and five picture/word cards face up in front of them. Two cards are placed face up in the middle of the playing surface. Race to be the first player to come up with a connection between one of your five cards and a center card! If you succeed, place your card over one in the center and say why the two objects are linked. You card becomes a new card that players try to form an association with. Then fill the empty space in front of you with a card from your deck. The first player to correlate all of their cards wins! For 2 or more players. Game time: approx. 30 minutes.

    This quick and easy-to-play dice game combines elements of other popular games, with exciting results! Two teams receive a list of five blank lines with different colored squares in the first, second or third letter position. The five colored dice are rolled, with colors corresponding to the squares on the list, and teams come up with five words with those letters in the right position. For example, if the blue dice was "w" then you could write "powerful." Each team stops the timer when their list is complete, and when both teams are done, they swap lists. One player on each team gives clues and tries to get their teammates to guess the words on the list. But they only have as much time as it took the other team to write the list! For 4-10 players.

      Often we are not aware of the responses our words trigger. Especially in the unique interactions between parent and child, communication can cause unintended results. This manual’s overall emphasis is to move from being a well-intentioned parent to one who interacts with skill and love. The book discusses methods to handle six behavioral areas with children: handling feelings; cooperation; punishment alternatives; autonomy; praise; and role playing (how children view themselves and respond to that image). While you may feel uncomfortable writing in books, this is a parenting book with exercises, designed to help parents practice communication skills as they read along. Sometimes chapter exercises encourage writing responses to conversations (positive or negative); sometimes they encourage interpreting conversations. To help model effective communication, hundreds of examples are explained via text and cartoons (to demonstrate visually and quickly).

      Each chapter additionally provides an assignment, Quick Reminder points (to easily review what you’ve read) and parent stories (anecdotes from a variety of parent/child interactions). Note that the author writes the interviewed parents’ reflections verbatim as communicated during secular parent training sessions. The author also advocates that in response to inappropriate behavior, parents should administer consequences rather than punishments. Written by authors of Siblings Without Rivalry, this is a 30th anniversary edition. 5 1/2x8 5/16”, 345 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
