Some letters get a 2-page spread while others have 1 page per letter. This might be one of those things you keep to look back on as a snapshot of your child's learning.

    Even the very young have an infatuation with dinosaurs. This book by DK is written for the younger crowd and includes more visuals and a smaller amount of text. Photos and illustrations are dominant on every page, and textual information is presented in short readable sections. Rather than being divided by types of dinosaurs, this book is in four general sections – world of dinosaurs, living body, senses and behavior, and death of the dinosaurs. A glossary lists many of the new words they will encounter in this book. The information is more concise for shorter attention spans, but still includes the DK quality you expect in their reference materials. Your little ones will enjoy just flipping through all of these realistic dinosaur pictures. 128 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

    Parents and teachers often counter spelling questions with the response, "Look it up!". Unlike most dictionaries, which often contain more than 50,000 entries with more than a hundred on each page, this volume is designed for maximum efficiency for middle school students. It contains 5,000 words that research shows middle-schoolers use in over 95% of their writing. The alphabetized words include different forms the word can take and short definitions of words that sound the same but are spelled differently. A thesaurus is also included in the library. These pages offer multiple alternatives for overused words and expressions in the average middle-schooler's writing. Word banks for country and state names as well as thematic lists to help students write about major subjects like sports, school, and holidays will provide students with a chance to take responsibility for their own writing and will make it easier for the teacher to promote good writing.

    A creative, interactive, hands-on approach to vocabulary! What better way to retain the learning of new words? Using index cards, a file box, and a good dictionary, this approach is a welcome departure from the typical workbook fare. And, subtitled: Help for Reading, Writing, Spelling and S.A.T. Scores, it's obvious from looking at this book that it would, indeed, do just that! How? By teaching the roots of the English language found in Greek and Latin. Since the majority of our words are rooted in these classical languages, mastering these roots is a key that will open the door to understanding a myriad of words! The creative activity suggestions in this book could become the basis for wonderful unit studies as well.

    The meanings of words change over time. Take the word "marriage," for example. Who knows how a modern secular dictionary will define it tomorrow? Fortunately, we have a standard available that will not change, because the definitions are based on the word's Biblical usage and basis in one of 26 original languages. This reprint of Noah Webster's classic is nearly a textbook in itself, as it gives examples of word usage from classical literature and the Bible. What better way to understand the writings of America's founding fathers than to define their words as they would have understood them.

     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).

The book really consists of three separate books, conveniently compiled into one volume. The three "books" are an Activity Book, Picture Dictionary Wordbook, and a Bilingual Dictionary. The Activity Book consists of 26 themed topics and introduces children to common phrases and basic vocabulary pertaining to everyday situations—such as greetings, school, or at a picnic. The lessons feature color photos of school-aged children (with bilingual speech bubbles), as well as colorful graphics, tips, and vocabulary games.The audio CD corresponds to each of the lessons, and students are encouraged to listen to the CD (to develop an ear for native dialogue and pronunciation) while they follow along in the book. The Picture Dictionary contains colorful photos of people, places and objects with the Spanish or French words (and English translations) written below. The Bilingual Dictionary contains translations for 2000 of the most commonly-used Spanish or French words. The flashcards consist of five sets of twelve flashcards covering food, clothes, objects, numbers and animals. The flashcards can be used to play the games in the Activity Book, or they can be used by themselves to study vocabulary words. The multisensory appeal of this kit should inspire even the most reluctant foreign language students. ~ Lisa

    If you're looking for a simple but fairly thorough way to learn Spanish, this book teaches it in 15 straightforward grammatical steps. You'll learn Spanish the way people naturally acquire a language, with each step building upon the one before. First you learn the elements of a sentence with steps including: Nouns, Articles, and Adjectives; Estar, Ser, and Subject Pronouns; Hay, Interrogative Words, Days, and Months; Numbers, Dates, and Time; Regular Verbs; Irregular Verbs; Ir and the Future; Adjectives and Adverbs; and Negatives and Prepositions. Then you move on to more complicated steps like Indirect Objects, Direct Objects, Reflexive Verbs, Present Subjunctive, Preterit Tense, and finally Imperfect Tense. Each chapter contains clear grammar explanations and students will need to make sure they understand every concept before moving to the next or they may struggle to keep up. The book explains each component of Spanish grammar in an uncomplicated way, with plenty of examples to help students understand. After the explanations, varied written and oral exercises are included so students get used to reading, writing, and speaking in Spanish. While speaking with a native Spanish speaker is the best way to learn how to pronounce the words correctly, a pronunciation guide is included in the book that's very helpful in describing how words should be pronounced. Each chapter also includes Spanish readings with comprehension questions to help students learn new vocabulary and practice reading aloud. Some may find that there's not enough review or drills in this book to help them cement the language into their head, because it does move rather quickly from step to step. However, if students are willing stay with each step until they truly understand the section and have memorized the vocabulary words, this program will give them a working knowledge of the language and allow them to communicate in everyday Spanish. You'll need a Spanish/English dictionary to get the most out of this book because while some of the Spanish words are shown with their English translation (including over 300 of the most commonly used verbs), many are not and the actual number of vocabulary words (specifically nouns) is limited. Overall, this is a great book that can quickly give students the knowledge they need to comminute in Spanish with confidence. An answer key for all the exercises is included in the back.
