    This book is written in the same vein as Meet the Great Composers, only intended for younger students. It consists of 12 units and 13 composers: Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Chopin, Foster, Dvorak, Sousa, Macdowell, Debussy and Rachmaninoff. Each unit begins with a brief biography of the composer. Following is a longer "story" from the composer's life. After this is a short section highlighting important compositions and a reference to a track on the accompanying CD so you can listen to one of them. These are different selections than those in Meet the Great Composers. As with that volume, a review activity concludes the unit. Again, there is no overlap and the exercises are designed for a slightly younger student. This is important, since the authors suggest continuing study with the Meet the Great Composers series.

    For all you Ms. Frizzle fans, here's another Magic School Bus Science Kit. You can let your little ones do chemistry like all the students in Ms. Frizzle's science class. This Chemistry Lab comes packaged in a replica of the Magic School Bus (made of cardboard measuring 15" long by 8 ½" high) with storage space and trays for all the kits components. This kit includes most of the hard-to-find materials needed to do experiments: Petri dish, string, peppercorn, balloon, wooden craft stick, piece of iron, ph chart, 25 ml measuring cup, ph paper, pipette, blue and red litmus paper, pencil, safety goggles, plastic measuring spoon, plastic funnel, 3 plastic test tubes, test tube brush, soap, cardboard, clay, white blue, borax, yeast, chromatography paper, foil, liquid dish soap, straw, and ruler.

    51 glossy cards accompany the kit and will help your young chemist get started learning about scientific tools, measurements, acids and bases, and much more. The first twelve cards offer general information, messages from Ms. Frizzle, safety and instructions for the kit. Cards 13 through 51 are experiments. The front of each card gives a list of materials needed, steps to follow for the experiment, and illustrations. An explanation of the experiment is found on the reverse side of the card. You will get to make sticky ice, test materials for acidity, inflate a balloon without blowing into it, make pepper jump, learn about buoyancy, make a speed boat, and much more as you learn with Ms. Frizzle and her class.

    A data notebook is included for recording data in specific lessons. This is a small 5"x 7" stapled booklet with space to record observations. If you are doing the experiments with multiple students, you can have them work in teams to record the information or let them make their own notebook – this one is pretty simple. Use this kit as a chemistry unit study or alongside your curriculum – either way you will have fun with Ms. Frizzle and the gang! ~ Donna

    Colorful, appealing, and kid-friendly, the Classroom Atlas from Rand McNally is the next step up from the Junior Classroom Atlas (#007961) with more maps, more detail and more information. The book begins with a section defining map terminology. Next are nine world maps, each with a different emphasis: physical, political, climates, population density, and time zones, to name a few. Following are physical, political, and thematic maps for each continent. Thematic maps might showcase climate, environments, population, economic activities, natural hazards, or transportation. Each continent map section begins with an introduction that provides a historical and geographical overview of the continent, a timeline, and photos of people, places, animals, or landmarks from the continent. Additional maps are provided of the United States, Canada, and Mexico/Middle America. Graphs, charts, and "Did You Know?" fact boxes add visual interest and content. Interesting Top 10 lists (i.e. Largest lakes, longest rivers, most populated countries) are printed in the front and back inside cover. Index included. This is the 13th edition, copyright 2015 and includes North and South Sudan. 208 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    From the author of Latin Centered Curriculum (Memoria Press), this comprehensive K-12 resource for memorization, copywork, and dictation provides a vast array of memorization material in all academic areas, as well as Latin and Greek. Weighing in at a hefty 450 plus pages, this book provides you ample choices for memory work, and has been designed for use with any classical curriculum or simply as a handy reference for home or school. At first glance, the sheer size of this book appears to be overwhelming. However, the author reminds us this book has been created to provide 13 years worth of memorization options and we simply integrate what we feel is the best selection.

    Beginning with the importance of memorizing, this detailed book takes you through the steps of how to memorize and includes general principles to make memory work easier; you are then set free to select memorization selections from a vast array of subject areas. Read on for more details! The Latin chapter is divided into six parts: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; Prayers; and Hymns and Carols. The first three sections contain mostly secular material, while the last three are religious. The Greek chapter is divided into five sections: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; and Prayers and Hymns. These selections are drawn from both classical and ecclesiastical Greek, and the author has also included some background information on Easter Christian traditions. Translations are provided throughout. The Arithmetic and Mathematics chapter includes an extensive resource selection, including (but not limited to): addition/subtraction fact families, properties and orders, prime numbers, multiplication table, Euclid's Definitions and Common Notions, and the Pythagorean Theorem. The Grammar and Composition chapter is designed to support the study of classical languages and to reinforce principles taught in your individual writing program. It includes grammar rhymes, grammar rules, and 100 commonly misspelled words. The Literature chapter contains five sections: Literary facts and lists; Sayings, Proverbs, and Famous Quotations, Teaching Rhymes, Poetry and dramatic speeches from Shakespeare's plays. The Religion chapter contains six sections: Scripture, Prayers, Catechism, Poetry, Hymns and Carols. Using the King James Version of the Bible, the religious selections include material drawn from the Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions. The Geography chapter contains a large number of lists from both a World and US Geography perspective. The World History chapter covers events and personalities from around the globe, with the emphasis on those topics of enduring importance. Please note: dating encompasses an old earth perspective, dating back to 35,000 BC. The United States History and Civics chapter stresses key dates in American history, as well as the founding documents of our nation. Patriotic songs, verse and oratory are also included. The Natural Sciences chapter brings together lists and mnemonics for basic information in the natural sciences and is written primarily for elementary and middle school. It is best if the child memorizes material in this chapter, as it is encountered in their course of studies in the science curriculum of your choice. Extensive reference charts are found at the end of the book. These are meant for quick reference in Latin and Greek and are not meant to replace a Latin or Greek curriculum. They are, however, a good basis for Latin and Greek recitation.

    As you can see, this extensive resource book provides ample opportunities for memorization success. I was impressed with the extensive selection in each academic area, and believe this truly will be a valuable resource for families who desire to incorporate memorization from the classical perspective. 450 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    If you need some help getting organized, but want more flexibility than a standard lesson-plan book provides, read on! This journal combines lesson planner with other helpful forms uniquely suited to homeschooling. Intended as a permanent record, the spiral-bound volume can be filed away with your children’s work as a lasting reference to your school year. The first few pages contain helpful instructions for use and 2-year calendar to aid in planning. A“Linear Schedule of Home Schooling Events” - your year-at-a-glance summary of school-related activities - is followed by a page of yearly requirements like dental exams, test dates, home schooling conventions, etc. A two-sided page for recording by-subject test scores follows. The next several pages are devoted to recording information pertinent to planning field trips, including goals for learning. The heart of the organizer is a generous 200-day daily subject log. Recording boxes are ample and each page helpfully includes a lined, wide “NOTES:” column which allows for detailed recording of particulars on field trips, special activities, journal entries, whatever. At the end of the planner are 13 full pages of library list forms, allowing you to keep a record of books read or books that you hope to locate for use in unit studies. Reasonably priced, this journal could be a wonderful investment in tracking and organizing your school year.

    This book will help you to develop Christian character in your children. 13 units focus on honoring God, respecting others, telling the truth, self-control, kindness, obeying rules, forgiveness, responsibility, patience, loving everyone, apologizing, thankfulness, and sharing. Every unit holds 10-11 pages of stories and activities for that value. A poster for that trait starts each chapter, along with games, songs and a craft. Then there is a Bible lesson , such as the story of Jonah for "saying I'm sorry," and an application lesson - a real life situation story in which fictional children learn the lesson. A few activities are included for each lesson, such as following directions, puzzles, crosswords, and other practical, original exercises. Every unit ends with a "My Contract" page, where kids can decide to sign a contract to try and do better in that area. Although you can use this with just one child, I think it would also work well for a Sunday school class or group of children, as it is reproducible and several of the activities and games utilize "teamwork." ~ Stephanie
