    I'm embarrassed to say that I probably need to complete these punctuation packets myself as a grammar refresher. This age of informal writing, quick emails and text messages has reduced my recall of proper grammar rules to merely hazy memories. This resource contains packets of reproducible activities that review common grammar rules. Eight packets are included: Commas I, Commas II, Capital Letters I, Capital Letters II, End Punctuation, Apostrophes, Quotation Marks, and Colons and Semicolons. Each packet consists of six activities (each page introducing a specific punctuation rule) plus one tic-tac-toe review activity. The packets are self-paced in that the student checks off the worksheets as the packet is completed. There is also a good variety of worksheet activities, many of which are self-checking. For example, you may be asked to find and circle letters that need to be capitalized, and those circled letters should spell out the name of a holiday. 80 pgs. ~ Anh

    This grammar workbook offers straightforward worksheets for students who need extra practice, reinforcement, or just a refresher course. It begins with a short "Check What You Know" section so you can determine the student's current level of understanding or spotlight specific areas he/she needs extra help with. After this, the worksheets are divided into four units - Vocabulary (synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, prefixes and suffixes, contractions, compound words, and idioms), Sentences (types, parts of, compound and complex, run-on, etc.), Grammar and Usage (parts of speech, active and passive voice, commonly confused words, conjunctions, double negatives, etc.), and Capitalization and Punctuation (capitals, end punctuation, commas, quotation marks, and others). Each worksheet follows the rule-example-practice format and targets a single skill so students can master it. At the end of the book, a second "Check What You Know" tests students again. A few "cheat sheets" in the back provide students with lists of language terms, personal pronouns, irregular verbs, and commonly misused words. A complete answer key is also included, and all of the pages are perforated for easy removal. 124 pgs. - Melissa

    The Reinforcement & Review provides the suggested worksheets for the first two years. These are similar to the Skills Support lessons and include excerpts from classic literature that the student parses and then paraphrases. Answers are provided after each section. Ms. Finley believes strongly that correction is an important part of the learning process. She insists that the student be involved in all correcting, that only correct answers are marked, and that tests and worksheets are completed “Open Notes” using the resource material in the Student Book.

     This introductory reference guide will appeal to your pictorial learner. First, you’ll get a good beginning grammar overview (parts of speech--including noun and verb phrases, active/passive voice, clauses, conjunctions, direct speech, and confusing words). Parts of speech are identified with text, arrows and colors, though inconsistently applied (Nouns are not always green, for example). Explanations are brief and accented with graphs and cartoon drawings. The second section covers punctuation (periods, commas, question and quotation marks, apostrophes, and those funky and elusive parentheses, dashes, hyphens and ellipses). Finally, get a thumbnail introduction to style (basic genres, sentence- and paragraph level improvements). The book includes a glossary, quiz, and index. Also, access to Quicklinks provides grammar, punctuation and spelling games, quizzes and puzzles. An attention-grabbing way to introduce or remind students of grammar skills. 136 pgs, reinforced sc. ~ Ruth

    A personal record of major events and people encountered in history. Designed to be a record-keeping place, this book gives the framework; you supply the content. With a classical orientation (The very limited written content includes a quotation from Livy.) and an assumption of Biblical events (no actual Biblical or Christian content), the book consists of pages with lined and blank columns. Each two page spread covers a designated period of time. Each page has two columns. The two center columns of a two-page spread are lined (.25” lines) and the two outer columns are blank (for drawings or attaching pictures). Time designations are in the upper left or right corners (outer corners) of each page. Designated time periods differ per two-page spread and are as follows: 5000 - 2500 BC; then 2500 – 2200 BC. Each two-page spread for the rest of the book is marked as follows: 2200 – 1 BC (100 years each spread – 23 spreads); 1 – 1500 AD (100 years); 1500 – 1800 AD (50 years); 1800 – 1900 AD (20 years); 1900 – 2030 AD (10 years). Interspersed at appropriate places are two-page spreads labeled “In the Beginning;” “Men Begin to Multiply;” “A Flood of Water;” and “In the Fullness of Time.” Eleven pages for maps and notes conclude the book. 50 pgs. pb ~ Janice

    Learning how to diagram sentences can really help students visualize how the different parts of speech work together to form sentences. However, this skill isn't always included in English books. This workbook provides a wonderful supplement to any curriculum. It covers sentence diagramming from easy to challenging, one step at a time. After reading simple explanations and seeing examples, students practice with similar sentences. The worksheets start with just subjects and predicates and then progress to adjectives, adverbs, direct and indirect objects, appositives, interjections, prepositional phrases, participles, and gerunds. Reviews are scattered throughout, which can be used as quizzes or test if desired. The worksheets are perforated and reproducible. Answers included, 46 pgs. - Melissa

     The Student Book (textbook) is the instruction, divided into chapters, then into lessons. Important notes about the curriculum and its use are found in the front of the book. Students will read the lesson in the Student Book and complete the activity page found in the Teacher Guide (sold separately or as part of the Book 2 Set). That’s how easy it is to use this curriculum. Don’t confuse easy-to-use with over-simplified content. After comparing the content of this course with that of Bob Jones, Saxon, Alpha Omega etc., Principles of Mathematics stays with the pack. It covers all pertinent topics for algebra preparation. While there is quite a bit of reading, the language is fairly easy to read and comprehend (conversational). The text is black and white with examples and illustrations, so may not appeal to your more visual learner. Lessons that have recommended calculator use are marked with a calculator symbol. 

    Book 2 is considered the pre-algebra portion of the program, so students need to be competent in basic functions of fractions, decimals, percent, and basic geometry. Book 2 assumes the knowledge of content presented in Book 1; so if you aren’t sure where to begin, have your student take the placement tests available on our website.

    The daily warm-ups provided in this book will help young students understand various aspects of the Constitution and U.S. government. Each worksheet provides five quick exercises (one for each school day) that review certain parts of the constitution. Exercise examples include listing items (like listing 5 powers given to Congress), true or false, defining words, writing an opinion about an issue, short answer questions, and more. Thereââ‚™s a wide variety of exercise types so students wonââ‚™t get bored, and each exercise shouldnââ‚™t take more than 5-10 minutes a day. The entire Constitution (with amendments) is printed in the front of the book (taking up 18 reproducible pages) and students can use it as a reference to answer most of the daily questions. Exercise pages are also reproducible and perforated, so you can hand out each exercise day by day, or just give your student the page to complete the entire week of activities. The exercises are organized into convenient units covering the legislative, executive, and judicial branches, Articles 4, 5, and 6, the Bill of Rights, and the rest of the amendments to the Constitution.

Some of the worksheets include Statehood History, Physical Features, Political Features, Famous People, and Government. Budding artists will enjoy drawing state flags, seals, and symbols on the appropriate pages.

    This concise, consumable resource provides students of the First World War with exposure to the primary causes of the conflict, and the struggle for neutrality that raged in the U. S. and elsewhere. Readers also learn about the daily life of soldiers on the Western Front who were engaged in trench warfare, as well as issues related to the role of propaganda. The final lessons include important details regarding the political effects of the Treaty of Versailles that ended the Great War. Each of the twenty-one lessons focuses on some important military or political aspect of the war, and provides students with online research assignments and targeted questions that help give them a greater understanding of the issues. Students also gain significant exposure to primary source material, such as treaties and original letters from soldiers, while they learn how to interpret relevant maps and graphs. Answer key and basic teaching recommendations are included. 42 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

       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

      Lots of children's books to read together? Check. Fun themes for every week? Check. Designed specifically for homeschoolers? Check. Bible-based? Check. Easy to use? Check. All-inclusive? Check, again. Obviously, this program has it all! I took one look at this program and fell in love. I currently have five children, two not yet in Kindergarten, so I'm in the thick of homeschooling these early learning years myself! I opened the Kindergarten Semester 1 Teacher's Binder and was immediately impressed with its usability and attractiveness, for both teacher and student.

      This program is based on a 36 week school year, with planned activities for four days each week and one open day for either catch up or activities of your choice. Subjects include Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Physical Development and Fitness, Fine Arts, and Character Development/Bible, and the scope and sequence appears to be traditional in terms of pacing. The program is heavily literature-based, which I love, and my kids love! You can choose to either check the books out of the library or purchase some or all of the titles. The Teacher's Binders include all lesson plans and a single copy of all student pages 3-hole punched for easy removability. Additional student workbooks (200+ pages per semester) can be purchased either in a binder or as refill pages.

      When you first open the Teacher's Binder, you will find an overview chart that shows the months and the themes for each week. Notes are given for teaching procedures, skills that will be acquired, organization and planning, using the daily lesson plans, daily routines, pledges and songs, etc. Then you get to the weekly lessons. Each week starts with a page showing the theme, the required literature, additional literature, and a Bible verse that pertains to the theme. Turning the page gives you the lesson plans by day, starting with skills to be learned in the lesson, a list of required materials, and then delving into step-by-step direction for each subject covered that day. The plans are very clean and almost scripted, so it's easy for anyone to just pick up and do once required materials have been gathered.

      Worksheets used for the lesson follow the teaching plans. The worksheets are clean, attractive, and inviting. Most lessons have one worksheet, some have a couple. You can start days off with prayers or pledges, and then go into calendar activities which include knowing what day it is today, yesterday, and tomorrow, marking off days on the calendar, counting up to today's date, singing songs to learn days of the week or months of the year, the weather outside, using patterns, etc. Next are subject-specific assignments for each day, laid out with bullet points. Math activities usually include a mix of hands-on activities and a simple workbook page. You read a book with your child every day, and the Teacher's Manual includes questions for discussion. Each day includes other activities that utilize drawing, writing, arts & crafts, memorizing, physical fun, singing songs, nature walks and much more.

      In the back of each binder, you'll find an appendix containing flashcard templates, rhymes and songs, recipes, materials used (shown with general weekly materials, and broken down for each week - more convenient than looking at each day!), a literature list, and more.

       Bundles include the Semesters Teacher’s Binder, a 12-month blank calendar, several sets of flashcards, games, and several other manipulative resources.  You can purchase the Full Year Bundle which includes the teacher’s manuals for both semesters and the other resources listed above, or purchase a Semester Bundle which includes one teacher’s manual and resources listed above used for that semester. Teacher’s Manuals include all the plans and one set of student pages.

      All in all, this solid program gets a thumbs-up from me! It is so user-friendly, covers a full range of great concepts and skills, ensures lots of quality and fun school-time with your young children, and introduces you to many engaging children's books. ~ Megan

    This kit provides everything you need to learn how to manipulate fractions. The subtitle on the book says "Learn fractions in 42 ½ Days," which is great for those just beginning fractions or those struggling with fractions. 56 games and 17 worksheets are used to help students master addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions, and introduce percents. This isn't a conventional approach to learning fractions, but it works well with more active learners. The kit includes the new (©2014) spiral-bound lesson book, spiral-bound worksheets book, two plastic Fraction Charts, Basic Number Card Deck, Multiplication Card Deck and Fraction Card Deck.

    The Lesson book is divided into 42 ½ daily lessons. Each lesson begins by stating the day's topic or goal of the lesson, a list of what you will need, and instructions for teaching the lesson. There is an appendix at the back of 7 reproducible pages that need to be copied for some of the games.

    The worksheets book is non-reproducible and contains 17 worksheets that are used with specific lessons and a certificate of achievement.

    Three decks of cards are included in this kit. The Basic Number Deck includes 132 cards and is numbered from 0 to 10 – 12 of each number. The Fraction Deck holds 75 cards with 20 different fractions and 20 matching percent cards. The Multiplication Deck includes 100 cards from 1x1 to 10x10 (there are duplicates of some of the cards). All of these decks are used with game instructions found in the lessons.

    There are 2 Fraction Charts made of durable, heavy plastic – one is whole showing the markings of all the different fraction bars, and the other is separated into the different parts. Directions for using these are included in the lessons and an instruction sheet is also included.

    If you are already using RightStart Mathematics, you will notice that there is overlap of some of the games and content, as some of the lessons are pulled from levels D and E of the math program and some games from the Math Card Games Book. This is a perfect supplement for the student who might be a little more visual or hands-on and needs more fractions practice.

    Kids love to read about little Frances the badger because they relate to the stories & situations about her family & friends. Author Russell Hoban was inspired by his own 4 children.

    Children develop fine motor skills at varying rates - some simply need more practice than others. As parents and teachers, we may need more ways to teach these skills, and that is where this handy package of scissor skill paper may come in handy. Each of the 32 sheets contains brightly colored feathers (144 total) with directional scissor marks (right and left handed options). Each feather is encased in a rectangle, and children begin by following the scissor icon to separate feathers from one another. Following the additional directional marks, children will cut straight, curved, wavy and zigzag along the thick black lines on the outer edge of the feather. Shiny, coated paper is vibrantly colored making the cut-out feathers perfect for craft projects including making a pseudo "feather quill pen". Instructional sheet is included, with a web link for additional teaching resources. ~ Deanne

    Sentence structure, diagramming subjects and predicates, helping verbs and verb phrases and irregular verbs. Nouns as subjects, direct objects and predicate nominatives are studied. Seventh grade students also study proper, possessive, and predicate adjectives and prepositions, interjections, and conjunctions and how to use them properly in sentence structure. Students learn to use colons, semicolons, apostrophes, quotation marks, parentheses, dashes and hyphens effectively in sentences. They read a chosen novel, write a daily journal as they read the novel and complete a final review of the novel. They complete this process several times throughout the year with different types of literary works: novels, short stories and poetry. Spelling, vocabulary and grammar are strengthened.

    This tape was a staple in my schoolroom. Suppose writing gets where it shouldn't – cover it up! What if a worksheet is started but not completed – cover up the stray marks. Because it's Post-It®, you can put it on, take it off, and reuse it so those 58 feet of tape last a long time. I have to admit, though, that my favorite usage was to cover up the answers in a teacher's manual, which meant I could let a student use the manual himself in some instances. Tape is 1/16" wide covering a single line of type. As mentioned before, tape is repositionable (removing easily) and can be written on. ~ Janice
