    This older cousin of the Funny Phonics game achieves the same standard of replay-ability and motivating fun in practice, only with the goal of learning parts of speech. Up to four sentence constructors can play. Durable game board, double-sided player boards and cards offset the somewhat flimsy 12-sided cardstock die (that you may need to reinforce with tape!). Strategy, chance, and changing outcomes keep game play exciting. There are two levels of play. The shorter version, for younger readers, requires them to make only two, six-word sentences using four parts of speech: nouns, adjectives, articles, and verbs. If you are playing with even younger children, you can play with just nouns, adjectives, and verbs (by folding the player boards differently). The longer version requires two complete sentences, each using 2 adjectives, 2 nouns, a verb, article, and preposition. The 136 word and picture cards are color-coded by function and stacked in piles by color on the game board. Players move around the board depending on rolls of the die and/or instructions on the game board, collecting part of speech cards. If they're lucky, they'll roll or land on a space that lets them choose "Any Card", giving them an edge in completing sentences (more quickly and sillier). Word cards must be read (most are simple words and sight words) to be won. Sentences are constructed from collected cards by placing them on the correctly labeled (noun, verb, etc.) squares on player boards. The winner is the first person to make two silly sentences and read them aloud. Depending upon the reading level of your children, you may control the type (word or picture) of card used or its difficulty – or even use two separate decks for differing reading abilities among players (You can always expand play, too, by making some of your own cards to use with the game). It's a great little game for practicing sentence construction and parts of speech in an entertaining context.

    Break out the scissors, tape, paste and paper and make a stomach book, 3-D skeleton, a growing-tooth "movie," a cardboard spinal column, manipulative eye, and more! The book begins with a study of the sense organs: tongue, eye, ear, nose, and skin. Building models of each helps children understand how they work. The rest of the book is on body systems: skeletal, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, excretory, and muscular. Building models of the systems and some of their components after discussing them and performing some illustrative activities provides for active learning. Model patterns used are reproducible, so everyone can join in.

    When I wanted my daughters to learn to sew, I didn't trust my own knowledge of how to do it right and arranged for them to have private lessons. It was great! But expensive. This one-semester course would have been much better, I think. All you need to go from complete beginner to knowing you have the ability to tackle any basic pattern is right here. Well-done video instruction (the presenter has a pleasant voice and manners) allows you to repeat any part if you didn't quite get it or need to review later. A complete course manual parallels all video class material as well as provides additional content (like a fabric chart) and illustrations. Patterns for both adult sizes as well as child (pre-teen) sizes of a classic A-line dress (or nightgown) are provided for the final project. [Patterns are PDF files for you to print. Patterns will need to be taped together (adult sizes will have lots of taping) but the patterns are very sturdy and can be used repeatedly without the frustration of ripped tissue.] Like I said, it's all here. And it's non-consumable – you can use it for multiple children at one time – or sequentially.

    The 65 video lessons (5-6 per week) are 5-10 minutes each and include sewing machine fundamentals (i.e. threading properly, getting the correct thread tension, choosing the right stitch), different fabric types and "personalities", coordinating colors, how to read a standard pattern, how to measure your body correctly, and how to sew using a straight stitch and a zigzag stitch. Assignments are given via the video and the student is expected to do additional reading in the manual. With many lessons the student is encouraged to make journal entries as well as a sample to put in a binder thus creating a class record – and providing the basis for assessment (if you wish). Although instruction is simple and very understandable, it's also quite comprehensive and everything you would expect from a beginner's course including linings/interfacing, casings/hems, gathering, sleeves, buttonholes, buttons, and zippers. It all comes together in the final project that could be a matching mother/daughter dress if you preferred. Several field trips (such as to a local fabric store) are encouraged.

    The binder/manual has sleeves for the DVDs, an extensive class syllabus that gives the topic, skill, classwork, and homework or follow-up for each class as well as a materials list. Periodic skills assessments involve sewing projects – pin cushion, simple apron, and simple skirt. All of this leads up to the final project – a classic A-line dress (or nightgown, if you prefer). Machine sewing skills are emphasized so a well-running basic sewing machine is necessary. Five DVDs provide the lessons and a sixth CD-ROM provides the pdf pattern files (patterns include child sizes plus adult sizes). The 189-page binder manual includes a thorough glossary of sewing terms as well as the detailed information that parallels the videos. ~ Janice

    Sigh, those creative children who forever want a new bedspread, new pillows, new paint, new curtains and such can cost you a fortune in time and materials. Never mind about the holes in your walls from changing their minds! Turn that creative bent into a thoughtful (an inexpensive) project where they get to design the bedroom of their dreams. You may even find it is motivation to earn some money and learn how to paint to make their dream a reality at some point! This kit from Klutz provides 5 fold-out practice rooms to design using over 300 punch out decorating pieces and patterned papers. Use the tape sheet (included) as you group the colors, patterns and accessories you want in your room onto a plan board of some kind or put them directly onto the room settings. There is also a 78 page book of instruction and inspiration. Design a loft look a la Boho chic, go soft and floral in a vintage style room with weathered finishes, or play with a stark black and white graphic wall with pops of color for a modern fab flair! You have loads of throw pillows to choose from in fun and trendy styles and colors. How about a chandelier? Why not, it's a dream room after all. Parents, just be prepared for a sales pitch from your child who is now armed with a concrete design for his/her bedroom! I have to say, the designs are pretty girly, but I think any future designer would have a ball with this cool kit. ~Sara

    Whether you are a math enthusiastic or math-phobic, this book is sure to engage your brain! Students will read about men and women with great math brains who changed our world, have the big ideas of math explained with clarity, and be given the opportunity to grow their math brain through the diverse activities found within the pages of the book. Each two-page layout is brightly colored and packed with informational tidbits, illustrations, and scattered activities covering topics such as number systems, sequences, calculation tips, 2-D and 3-D dimensions, shapes, magic squares, optical illusions, logic, infinity, and much more. An example from the Seeing Sequence page explains that "Math is the search for patterns - patterns of numbers, of shapes, of anything. Wherever there's any kind of pattern, there is usually something interesting going on, such as a meaning or a structure. A number sequence obeys a rule or pattern - the fun is in figuring out the pattern." Sample sequences are then given, and the activity provides step-by-step instructions for mathematical art, using sequences of squares to create a golden rectangle and spiral. Some additional math tools are required for the activities including a ruler, compass and tape measure. A glossary, index and answers are located in the back of the book. HC. 128 pgs. ~Deanne

    Any description of this atlas has to include a suggestion to view the sample pages online. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words! Looking at this atlas is a visual (and informational) treat. Each state (and Washington D.C.) covers a two-page spread. It has the appearance of looking like a desk blotter; with a journal open showing a map and a brief overview of the state. Surrounding the map are notes, dates, facts, illustrations and trivia "paper clipped" or "taped" in place. Readers are introduced to all of the basics: state birds, flowers, seals, flags, statistics, quarters, events, people, and much more. The maps are topographical with major cities and Interstate highways marked. Thematic maps show farm resources, expansion, population, climate and regions; and the paperback atlas ends with a state almanac and a list of geography terms defined. – Zach

    Johann Sebastian Bach would seem right at home at a Christian homeschool gathering - he had twenty children! In The Gift of Music, we learn a great deal of biographical information about more than 30 of the greatest composers from the 1600's to the present. More importantly, we learn it from a Christian perspective. The authors are uniquely gifted to be our tour guides. Jane Stuart Smith is an opera singer who lectures on music at L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland. Betty Carlson studied at the Conservatory of Music in Lausanne, Switzerland, and writes and works at L'Abri Fellowship. Together, they have crafted a book that is interesting, readable, and inspiring. So grab my favorite musical instrument (the tape player), play some selections from one of the featured musicians, then learn about the man behind the music.

    A complete, sensible, lesson-by-lesson phonics program by Sam Blumenfeld, an ardent advocate of literacy through phonics. Mr. Blumenfeld shows you simply and effectively how to teach a child to read, even supplying the lesson visuals in large type for beginners. Many, many thankful parents have testified to the success they've had in using this book with their children. There are no illustrations or distractions, just what is needed to learn and understand the phonetic system. A child begins to read words almost immediately, which seems infinitely more rewarding than a phonics program which insists on teaching all the sounds before the student actually puts them together to read a word. Note: This is the new edition and does not include the book on CDROM. Changes include a bound volume and an Addendum of Helps for the Parent which includes teaching tips. ~ Janice

    Here are 150 activities that teach the styles, works, and techniques of the great masters - Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and more. To imitate Michelangelo's Sistene Chapel, the young artist paints while reclined on his back with paper taped to the bottom of a table. To experience Van Gogh's style, children mix paints into a thick substance called "impasto" and then paint with heavy, swirling brush strokes. Each activity contains a brief history of the artist, a project, and an example of that artist's work.

    The Student Text is fairly self-directed, written as a conversation to the student. Students are guided, step by step through learning about and responding to their reading. Each chapter covers one book in 6-9 lessons. The lessons combine instruction and workbook into one format so that students respond to questions as students read through the text. As they complete their study of the literature, students must evaluate the conflict "colliding worlds" (man vs. man; man vs. ideas, etc.) involved, complete the quizzes and survey, take a vocabulary "quizzola," and complete the final, culminating activity. An "If You Liked This Book" section includes a list of additional readings. 8.5" x 11" 285 pp, sc.
