    Subtitled "Beginning Spanish for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," this book serves as a great introduction for the family who wants to "try out" the language before investing in a full-fledged Spanish course. This book contains 177 short lessons (usually a page in length), which are straightforward and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. Lessons are self-paced, self-explanatory, and offer plenty of practice exercises. Lessons that introduce new Spanish vocabulary feature a new Spanish word, its English translation, and often a pronunciation tip, followed by about ten sentences to translate. Grammar lessons introduce concepts and verb forms gradually; as verb forms are introduced, they are added to a chart, which students use to aid in translating sentences. For pronunciation help, the author provides free, downloadable MP3 audio files on his website, which can be used with the lessons. Because this book is a non-reproducible worktext (not a workbook), it can be used with multiple students. (The author recommends writing the translating exercises in a separate notebook.). Overall, this course teaches students about 100 vocabulary words, gives them a grasp of basic Spanish grammar, and makes them comfortable translating simple Spanish sentences. After completing this program, students will be ready to tackle a "regular" Spanish program with confidence – and they will be off to a good head start! ~ Lisa

    These should be called BIG blank bingo cards! Each card measures 7.75"x 10", the squares are 1.5" and there is space at the top for child's name or a game title above the BINGO. Cards are white w/black lines and an empty gray square in the middle. 36 cards are 2 sided, so you could do a LOT with this set. Have kids write in vocabulary words for spelling, science or reading, then play bingo and have them define or spell the words if they win. Teach colors or numbers to pre-kinders. Write out numbers in Spanish (or other language) and call out numbers in English in regular Bingo style for practice. Put stickers of animals in the squares for pre-readers. Write math problems in the squares and call out the answer, so students have to work a problem to win. You could make a set for addition, subtraction, etc. Put pictures of family members in the squares and play Bingo at a family gathering. If you make something amazing, laminate the cards to make them last. They are already made of heavy card stock. Great for homeschools, in a co-op, classroom, or Sunday school. ~ Sara

    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.

    With flash cards, stickers, lots of pictures, and an audio CD, I think I could learn to read and speak Spanish, too! A lot of beginning language books focus on only learning lists of basic words. This one not only teaches you to read and speak lots of basic words, but it also instructs you on how to form them into complete sentences. The authors' teaching method is wonderful, as you not only read the words in Spanish with the help of colorful pictures and English subtitles, but you also hear the correct pronunciations on the audio CD. The lively narrator pronounces the word for you several times and then you can repeat it. There are also hands-on activities utilizing flash cards and stickers to complete sentences as well as create fun stories. This hardcover book has 47 text pages, 48 flash cards, 24 stickers, and an audio CD that is 78 minutes in length. Your children will love how quickly and easily they can master the contents of this book! – elise

    Have a kiddo struggling to hold their pencil correctly while handwriting? Maybe all they need is something to fit over the pencil to teach them proper form. Here is a squishy, silicone grip just for that purpose! Fits easily over a pen or pencil, but the hole was too sung for a Sharpie marker. Measures 1.5" long and about an inch wide with large grooves for your three fingertips. Comes in an assortment of colors (our choice.) ~ Sara

    This is the junior version of the Wordsmith program. Grades 4-6 are an ideal time to teach your kids the "tools" of writing. Of course, at that age, if it isn't fun, kids don't want to learn. Wordsmith does a great job of introducing vital writing skills in a fun and enthusiastic way. Throughout this workbook, students pretend to be writers for the local newspaper. Fun comics are interspersed throughout the book to "instruct" your child on the concept they are learning. The lessons will cover sentence review, paragraph writing, reporting, creative writing, and expressing opinions. These skills are covered in three different sections of the book. Part one introduces nouns, verbs, and basic sentence structure to your children. Some of the projects in this section have your child write an invitation, a thank you note, haiku poetry, and four-sentence captions - just to name a few. Part two focuses on modifiers and more complex sentences. Here your child will create some advertising, work on editing, and write a book review. Part three moves on to organizing sentences in a logical fashion and reporting skills. Some of the projects your child will do include writing sports stories, giving household hints, composing a news article, and creating a comics column. Detailed instructions are given at the beginning of every project to help them complete it independently. Answers are printed in the back to help you correct their work. This spiral-bound workbook has black-and-white text and illustrations. 85 pgs, pb.

    Four years after using this book to learn to read at age 4, our twins would still take this book off the shelf and re-read the silly stories that made learning to read immediately rewarding. It is a phonics-based, non-consumable book authored by Siegfried Engelmann using the DISTAR method. Faced with two small children eager to read like their older sisters, but who were not ready for the more intensive writing and spelling accompanying most other reading programs, I was at a loss. All they needed at this tender age were enough decoding skills to enable them to read. We had already covered letter sounds (via song), so the twins literally zipped through the early lessons and quickly digested blends, vowel sounds, and digraphs, thoroughly enjoying every lesson. In fact, they begged for "extra" lessons, anxious to get to the next story! Large, bold type assures learning without eye strain. This volume filled a need in our own family and, judging from the numerous requests/recommendations by our customers, has done so for others as well.

      The 4th edition of this Classical favorite updates all product information (eliminating products which are no longer available and substituting new favorites for previous recommendations). The general organization and structure of the book is the same, although a new introduction/overview section on homeschooling high school has been added.

    If you're looking for some real guidance in product/curriculum selection for providing your child with a "classical" education, here it is -- down to the titles of the books and where to find them! These ladies have very clear recommendations for each subject area, both for elementary through eighth grade and high school levels, and they're anxious to share them with you. Written by a mother and her daughter (a second-generation homeschooler), the book provides what many are looking for - concrete, specific recommendations for materials to help in providing an academically rigorous, comprehensive education. Using the trivium as their pattern for education, the book is divided into sections by stage: the Grammar stage (grades K through 4), the Logic stage (grades 5 through 8), and the Rhetoric stage (high school). They wrote this book after coming to the conclusion that "if you want your child to have an excellent education, you need to take charge of it yourself. You don't have to reform your entire school system. All you have to do is teach your own child." And they, very capably, supply you with the when, what, and how of it all from there.

    Jessie Wise taught her daughter, Susan, at home, using the classical method. And Susan, a literature professor at the college of William and Mary in Virginia, uses it with her own three sons. Their experience and knowledge of materials has enabled them to provide us with both a clear explanation of the theory behind a classical education and the means to implement it. Each part of the book begins with a very good description of that stage, how it differs from the others, and what your priorities should be. Then, subject by subject, and grade by grade, they provide much advice about what to teach, schedules for teaching, and many, many curriculum (text and non-text) recommendations. Later sections of the book address socialization, character, time management, grading and record keeping, standardized testing, athletics, dealing with your local school system, getting help (when needed), going to college, working, obtaining materials, and starting in the middle. Appendices list home-education organizations and other resources. Parents who want to provide this type of education will find much support in this volume. Revised in 2009.

    "It's just common sense!" Actually, it's the Blue Book Common Sense Reading Program and yes, everything about this program is common sense. A very complete program organized around quality children's literature (like all LLATL programs) and covering phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" (small story book) book which uses those sounds. The literature component - carefully selected children's favorites - reminds students that the reason for all the hard work in phonics is the joy of reading wonderful books. And woven through both of these elements is comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts. Relying heavily on Ruth Beechick's principles for teaching reading (including her letter dice activities), the program includes a wide variety of activities appealing to all learning styles. The teacher's manual is a homeschooler's dream with all the work having been done for you, taking you step-by-step through the 36-week program. New skills are listed for each lesson with a materials list included at the beginning. Almost no teacher preparation is needed - you teach as you read. All answers are provided within the lesson. Higher-order thinking activities are italicized. Examples and diagrams are user-friendly including the easy-to-follow references to the Student Activity Book. Each of the four parts (readiness, short vowels, consonant blends and short vowels, and long vowels) concludes with an evaluation for determining your child's readiness for the next level. The Student Activity Book contains the materials (except for household and school supplies) needed for cut and paste, word wheels, flip books, picture sequencing, story-telling puppets, PLUS handwriting pages that teach all upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation. The comfortable, natural handwriting method that isn't exactly traditional, modern, or italic was developed by the authors. This handwriting instruction is coordinated with the phonics and includes pages for children to carefully complete and display or give as gifts.

    The Student Activity Book is consumable, even having an easy-release binding that allows for clean page removal. Even the back cover is put to good use providing the miniature book covers to be added to the personal reading chart that marks the child's progress. 28 separate readers cover short vowels, blends (bridge readers), and long vowels. They are small-sized for little hands and include black-and-white illustrations. Stories are engaging which is a good thing since a week's worth of learning activities are built around them. The student uses puppets to retell the stories, completes sequencing activities with a series of reader-related events, and answers comprehension questions. One interesting aspect of the teacher-student interaction concerning these readers is that the week's lesson starts off with the teacher reading the small book to the child. After several lessons thoroughly covering the new phonics steps and practice reading parts of the story, the student concludes the week with the successful reading of the small book. This is an effective variation of the typical approach because the goal of reading the book is always before the student. The materials packet is a useful collection of color-coded letter and word cards to use for learning and review along with cards used for reinforcement games and, of course, the letter dice (to be assembled from cardstock patterns). While this part of the program is not exactly consumable - you could use the various components again - the components do get a workout. If you are expecting to use the program with another child, you'll want to save these items and covering them with clear contact paper to preserve them would also be a good idea. The program includes the Teacher's Manual, the Student Activity Book, the 28 Readers, and the Materials Packet.

    We sell additional Student Activity Books, Reader Sets, and Material Packets so you can use the program with a second student. Well-known children's literature (Read-Aloud Library) is suggested each week, so at the same time your child is learning phonics, he is also learning other important reading skills such as literal recall, comprehension, predicting outcome, and drawing conclusions. These books are an integral part of the program and the Student Activity Book relies on them. Although usually available at the local library, for your convenience we also sell them. They are listed in order of use. Although this program focuses on first grade skills, it would be possible to use this program with a "ready" kindergartner. It would also work well with a slightly older child who is still a just-getting-started reader. ~ Janice

    Often students learn literary terms only within the larger realm of a reading program, where they are brought to light when a particular piece illustrates the meaning of that term well, and then it is again shadowed behind the other activities of comprehension, determining meaning, and interpreting symbolism. If you'd like to work in some lessons exclusively on these terms before encountering them, this makes a great supplement to define these terms and give students practice before they are expected to understand and use these in high school. Each lesson focuses on one of 40 literary terms and gives a definition, examples from literature, provides questions based on the examples, and then includes several written exercises for students to try their hand exploring and using the terms. The activities are a nice mix of short answer questions, writing activities, matching, interpreting, listing, and more to give students great practice both identifying and using each term. The literary terms included here include figurative language (denotation/connotation, idiom, personification, symbol), poetic language (parallelism, rhyme, rhythm, assonance/consonance), and literary techniques (allusion, conflict, flashback, genre, irony, mood/tone, satire, stream of consciousness) and too many more to list! Very well done. 136 pgs. - Jess

    The Lab Sheet Annotations contains the specific instructions for use of the children's lab sheets. It is the daily teaching companion of teachers using the Miquon Math Lab Materials. Each topic is introduced by a discussion of the mathematics underlying the children's work along with teaching suggestions and anecdotes.

    The book contains a complete set of the 650 student lab sheets (reduced in size) that appear in the workbooks. The intervening text indicates the objectives of the sheets and ways in which the students may use them. Included are preliminary activities, teaching suggestions, and follow-up activities for many of the lab sheets. The annotations provide questions that the teacher can ask to reinforce the concepts underlying the problems on the sheets. The text also suggests activities for practice in applying those concepts. Where the procedures and objectives are apparent at a glance, lab sheets are annotated.

    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.

    If you like the idea of a dvd to teach your high school physics course, Wes Olson has the solution – Physics 101. Like the other courses in the 101 Series, Wes Olson offers an engaging visual course rather than having the student read a text. Learn about the physics of our world, historical figures and their contributions and do hands-on labs to help you understand the concepts.

    Physics 101 covers concepts in these areas: light and color, mirrors and lenses, invisibility and speed of light, sound, acoustics, fire, thermodynamics, heat and cold, electricity, outlets and circuits, batteries and electromagnetic spectrum, Isaac Newton, Universal Law of Gravity, 1st Law of Motion, 2nd and 3rd Laws of Motion, Albert Einstein, relativity, quantum mechanics and the future of physics. There are 20 segments and a video for each that range in length from 20 to 43 minutes - a total of 11 hours and 10 minutes of video. Options are offered for subtitles and closed captions – a variety of languages are offered.

    There are PDFs that you may want to print and are included on the fourth disc (there are four discs in this course). The first pdf is titled, “Course Accreditation Program” and the second is the “Guidebook.” Instructions for opening the pdfs are printed on the face of Disc 1. Print out the files, hole punch them and put them in a notebook for your convenience.

    The Course Accreditation Program (CAP) is important information on how to use the course and get high school credit – a syllabus. Physics 101 provides about 135 hours of content, which is enough for one credit in physics. Basically, a lesson includes 4 steps: watch the video lesson, discuss the questions (found in the guidebook), do the mini-labs, research, write a 200-word report and take the segment quiz. The CAP includes all of the information for doing mini-labs – lists, instructions and where to fit them in. Mini-labs use common household items and a master list is found on page 4 of the CAP. You may run across a few unusual items, such as a canned air horn, microphone with jack to plug into your cell phone, magnesium fire starter, volt meter, etc. Items that are less common are marked, and you can skip labs if the items can’t be found; you will find that some sections have no labs and others have multiple. Instructions are included for assembling a student notebook that will be used all year; here students will record, take notes.

    The Guidebook is 106 pages and includes the table of contents (showing the segment and chapter divisions), an outline for each segment, discussion questions, quizzes, quiz answers and an alphabetic index.

    Physics 101 is a great high school level physics for your visual student or an interesting and informational watch for your family. Presented from a Christian worldview, students will learn about the relationship between science and the Bible in the area of physics. ~ Donna

    Instilling a love for science in my children was always a primary goal in our early days of home-schooling. One of my secret tools was always keeping a stack of interesting science reference books available for them to thumb through or to look up a quick question on their own (yes, this was pre-internet!), but I always struggled to find good quality books that did not overwhelm us with evolutionary content and would often lament to my husband, that it would sure be nice to have a Christian alternative to the informative Usborne or DK resource books. I am so excited to share that Master Books and My Father's World have heard the cries of many homeschool families and have joined together to provide quality science reference books that offer beautiful photographs and illustrations without the inundation of evolutionary teaching.

    Beginning with Genesis 1:1, this book introduces the scientific method, real science, fields of science and the reasons to study science and then dives into seven sections covering a wide range of scientific subjects. Section 1: Matters and Chemicals covers atoms, elements, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, melting and boiling, crystals, water, chemical changes, acids and bases and composites. Section 2: Energy, Motion and Machines presents energy, converting energy, the energy of motion, forces and motion, measuring force and motion, gravity, heat and cold, helpful machines, simple machines, machine power, friction and energy and matter. Section 3: Electricity and Magnetism contains electrical energy, static electricity, flowing electricity, electrical circuits, using electricity, magnetism, and magnetism to electricity, electricity to movement, movement to electricity plus more. Section 4: Light and Sound introduces sound waves, using sound, light, reflected and refracted light, using light, laser light and more. Section 5: Earth and Life presents planet earth, inside the earth, the rock cycle, volcanoes and earthquakes, atmosphere, weather and climate, mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes, coastlines, seas and oceans, life on earth and the earth in trouble. Section 6: Space and Time explores earth in space, exploring space, earth's orbit, magnetic earth, inner planets, solar wanderers, outer planets, the sun, stars and galaxies, deep space, and the universe.

    The last section provides over sixty projects covering topics in each of the previous six categories. Science projects contain a concise "you will need" list, clear step by step instructions, and colorful accompanying photographs. Each project also contains the reference page for further information and utilizes commonly found items. Glossary and index provide helpful reference material. hc. 247 pgs. ~ Deanne

    According to Professor Schmidt, this book is "mandatory for those who need it" and he claims, "If your cat can work through all the problems in this book, your cat can teach Beginning Algebra at any school in the nation". While those two claims seem true, I have serious doubts about the title. Although I haven't counted them, I suspect the good professor is exaggerating a bit. The book does offer additional problems for each section of each chapter of Beginning Algebra, along with complete (step by step) solutions to them. While clear from the introduction that Prof. Schmidt considers these unnecessary, I say, "Hurray!" No more rooting around in other books for some specific extra problems that your child needs extra practice with. I especially appreciate the inclusion of word problems as I remember this being a concept that Janine needed a little more experience with.

    Right-handed or left-handed, simple shapes, finger tracing, color-coding, catchy repetitive phrases and lots of practice make this single handwriting instruction book quite unique. Use it with big kids to littles. It’s not juvenile looking, but also without a complicated design. Using the horizontal format with a top spiral at the top, work through the pages from the front, then flip over and work through the back sides. The four basic shapes are color coded: orange ovals, lime loops, silver swings and mauve mounds. Finger tracing builds muscle memory. Saying the task steps of a task as you perform them helps reinforce new motor skills. And of course, there is pencil work tracing: inside bubble letters; writing letters; connecting letters, followed by sentences. Each lesson reviews the 4 main shapes. Additionally unique, the letters are grouped by the 4 basic shapes, not in alphabetical order: a good option for visual learners. It’s just well done. Whether your child would benefit from these methods, has never mastered cursive, or is a more traditional learner, this is as good a fit. Writing lines are .75” with dotted midline. Each lesson (10 total) can be completed in one 45-60-minute session, or in (up to 4) shorter, weekly lessons spread. 11”x 8.5”, 111 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    This simple tool is a great asset when teaching beginning math facts. It's a triangular white board with three 10" sides. It's double sided and has a write-and-wipe surface that works with any dry-erase marker (not included). Displayed on one side are four simple equations with the numbers left blank (two of __+__=__ and two of __-__ =__ ). The corners of the triangle are shaded different colors and teachers can write variables in the three corners and have students plug them in appropriately. For example, if 10, 7, and 3 were written in the corners, students could write 7+3=10, 3+7=10, 10-7=3, and 10-3=7. The opposite side of the board is identical but displays multiplication and division signs instead of addition and subtraction. With such an open-ended format and a reusable surface, this board is sure to get plenty of use. ~Rachel

      Colorful cardstock flags can be used in so many ways in your homeschool or classroom. Each flag is 4”x6” with perfect detail and the country written quite small in the corner. Add them to a geography or history unit. Make a flag into a research prompt. Put strings on them and hang them from your ceiling for a fun international flavor to your space. Use them as décor for an international dinner. Attach flags to a wood skewer and put them in your centerpieces! One-sided, come perforated in pairs. ~Sara

    Give your children a close-up to the inner workings of the human body, allowing them to identify and place major organs on the felt torso. The human body torso itself is 34" in height, and beautifully illustrated. The human brain and other structures in the head are shown bisected, as are the lungs.. However, other structures such as the major veins and arteries, and the heart are shown whole, as are the rest of the structures in the lower torso. The 34 pieces range widely in size, from the 10" large intestine to individual cells of about 1" in height. Pieces vary from actual body parts to place on the torso, to diagrammed depictions of individual cells and tissues, stages in growth and reproduction, and diseases. A 32-page lesson guide is included, to aid teaching of the different body systems, and health habits. This set is pre-cut. CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.
