    This is a grammar workbook for 2nd and 3rd year Spanish students. It includes explanations and exercises to complete right in the book and would make a good writing supplement to Rosetta Stone L2 and L3. In addition to the direct grammar instruction, there are reading passages to improve your vocabulary and see the grammar rules used in context. The book has 3 parts. The 1st part reviews the present tense and uses of ser and estar, the preterite, imperfect, progressive and subjunctive tenses plus commands (imperative.) The 2nd part goes in depth on nouns, articles, adjectives, pronouns, and the present and past perfect tenses. The 3rd part covers the future, conditional, past subjunctive and idioms.

    Beginning readers will appreciate this dictionary written just for them! This reference contains over 2000 age-appropriate vocabulary words. The book begins with an introductory section that teaches kids how to use the dictionary. Then it proceeds to the entries. The print size is large and easy to read, with about five entries per page. Guidewords appear at the top of each page, and entry words are in purple so they're easy to find. The definitions are complete sentences (ie. "A shed is a small building used to store things."), and sample sentences show how words are used in context. Full color captioned photos enhance the text and hold kids' interest. Some entries have feature notes which show sound-alikes, opposites, rhyming words, or related words. Different meanings of the same word are clearly distinguished, and irregular verb forms and noun plurals are listed at the end of each entry (when applicable). The bottom of each page has an alphabet border to reinforce "ABC order" skills. An appendix provides brief reviews of phonics and spelling concepts, plus commonly used word lists. 400+ pages, hc. ~ Lisa

    Memoria Press has a knack for giving parents the confidence to tackle heavy literature with their children. This is done by providing background historical information on the authors and their time period as well as historical material relevant to the literature itself. Do a little studying in here before teaching the lessons and you should be able to answer your kids' questions like a professor!

    Horatius at the Bridge is a story from ancient Rome, so it would be a great addition to any study of ancient culture or even a Latin language program. I like to see stories added to language studies. It gives the words some context about the people who speak it (or in the case of Latin, spoke it.) This story is a ballad or poem format. Parents are guided on meter and pronunciation. Each verse has a summary and characters are explained. There are lesson plans to follow. Hard names and words are spelled out phonetically and defined alongside the poem itself. This saves a lot of time with a dictionary.

    In the back is a study guide for students. Comprehension questions are in sections and have plenty of space for kids to write their answers here. Some exercises are matching vocabulary words to synonyms, but most require a sentence or two to answer. There are maps of the various Roman regions, a glossary of ancient place names and their modern equivalents, and a comprehensive test with 19 questions that require kids to write one or two sentence answers. A complete answer key to the study guide questions and the test are in the back. Not reproducible. 75 pgs, pb ~ Sara

    Each student book has 60 lessons with short lists of words (10 total, on average). Students will read a paragraph or so to read about the topic (this may be word parts & meanings, general info, or subject-specific vocab for example). Several examples demonstrate the concept. Each level includes a word part list and a glossary with pronunciation, part-of-speech, definitions, usage examples, etymology and special word forms. They will also learn how to use text clues and to consult resource material. The student text provides clues to meaning, thinking questions, helps to use context clues, and an Apply and Extend activity in which students are asked to do a variety of activities. For example, they may have to write a riddle for one of the words, think of other meanings not given, identify synonyms and define the shades of differences in meaning, use a word from the word list as both a noun and an adjective, etc. The non-consumable student book includes some instruction. The lessons are short and to the point. A review lesson occurs every 6th week. A glossary and a root word reference in the back are used in several lessons and make a helpful resource for students in general.

      “Take us to Your Reader!” Your goal is to reach Cosmos. Start reading on Earth; answering questions correctly will move you towards outer space. The first player to reach Cosmos wins. But there are twists, turns, and dangers ahead! A player may switch places with you; you may lose a turn; you may be sent back to another planet. You can save yourself, however, with the much sought after X-Pack—but you’re allowed only one at a time!

      This creative and enjoyable game reinforces reading comprehension techniques such as main idea, inference, details, cause/effect, visualizing and sequencing. Also highlighted are more complex skills including figurative language, context clues, comparison/contrast, genre, rhyming and vocabulary/grammar. These absolutely crucial reading skills are practiced while playing in an engaging and fun space-themed game format—with a bit of humor along the way.

      Four square game boards are double sided. Place them together, but players stay on their individual boards. Everyone starts on the side that shows earth. Use the spinner to start, and then select Earth card questions (either level A or the more challenging, B). Cards sometimes ask you to read the card’s passage and answer questions or may reinforce reading terms. Once you’ve made it to the rocket ship and correctly answered the next question, flip your game board over and move to the Space questions (there’s also a level A and B). Travel to 7 planets and then reach Cosmos.

      Won’t the cards’ reading selections just get routine or memorized? Substitute your own questions for the included cards. Imagine using your students’ textbook reading comprehension questions to reach the Cosmos! Caution: product may cause extreme fun while learning!

      Includes four double-sided game boards, a sturdy spinner card, 4 game pawns, 140 question cards, rules and answer key. Correlates to CCS standards. For 2-4 players. ~ Ruth

    Barron's does such a great job with test prep, and here is another example of that! They keep it simple: tell you what you need to know and how to apply it to an exam. The ACT tests vocabulary in a variety of contexts. Students will be making generalizations, drawing conclusions, comparing, interpreting, formulating & more within the three verbal portions: English, Reading & Writing.

    This vocabulary book is divided into 26 lessons. Each begins with a test-taker's anecdote – a few short paragraphs with snippets of common errors to avoid. Following is a word bank of 10 words, a manageable number for most students. There is a short definition followed by three sample sentences for each of the ten words and then memory tips, mnemonic tricks, and some matching practice with the vocab words and definitions. At the end of the lesson is a true/false exercise. Answers to the review exercises are in the back along with a glossary. The small format (6"x9") makes it handy to toss in a purse or backpack. 193 pp, pb. ~ Sara

    If you are planning on doing Latina Christiana I with your children this coming year, here is a great opportunity to study the Latin words you'll be learning as vocabulary roots as well, reinforcing the word meanings in both places! Of course, even if you're not studying Latin concurrently, this book offers a strong root-based vocabulary course that examines Latin roots and some Greek roots as well. Each lesson presents a group of roots, prefixes, and suffixes to learn which correspond to the order of lessons in Latina Christiana I. Roots, prefixes and suffixes are introduced with their meanings, and are also clearly labeled with an "R", "P" or "S." Words that contain these parts are listed below in shaded boxes, and meanings are also provided for these words along with additional explanation or notes that are helpful. After the meaning has been given, a sentence with a blank is provided where the student can see how the word is used in context. Some lessons also contain a continuation of a story with blanks here and there, where students must supply the appropriate root-based word they have studied to complete the story. There are challenging review quizzes at the end of every lesson, which test students' knowledge of definitions, prefix meanings, suffix meanings, root meanings, and even the differences between a word's meaning in Latin and the word's meaning in English! Context Quizzes are also provided periodically, where students fill in the blanks in sentences by using words from the word bank above, gathered from several different lessons. There is no separate teacher's guide, so occasionally, teacher notes are referenced in the margins and explained at the end of the lesson. Complete answer keys are provided at the end of the book, along with alphabetical lists of all words introduced, words by prefix, words by suffix, root words, prefixes and suffixes all indexed by lesson number. With no fancy layout or graphics and a rigorous examination of roots, prefixes and suffixes, this a solid choice for root-based vocabulary study. 192 pgs, pb. – Jess

    It varies in length, comes in all different sizes and colors, has been translated into countless languages, and has been re-written into many different versions. Through all of these differences, though, the message of the Bible remains the same – but that doesn't necessarily mean it is always accessible or clear. Dig Deeper can help. This book is full of study principles that the authors call "tools." These tools – once learned – will provide readers with understanding they can use to open the Scriptures to a new level. So what, exactly, are these tools? A glance down the table of contents will show one tool per chapter: author's purpose (for writing the book), context, structure, linking words, parallels, narrator's comments, vocabulary, translations, tone and feel, repetition, quotation/allusion, genre, copycat, Bible time line, "who am I" (who is this, relative to who I am), and "so what" (what does this mean for me and my life?). Chapters explain how and why each tool will be useful during your individual or group reading/study periods, and include examples of the tools being put to use and activities that encourage you to start utilizing them. The conclusion ties it all together with a long example of how to use the tools, as a whole kit, on a specific passage. A real hands-on discovery of God's Word. 158 pgs, pb. – Zach

    A little something(s) to read together while your child is learning to read independently. These would be perfect to introduce the various sounds (starting with short vowel sounds) to not only reinforce the sound in context, but to practice blending. You might read the text the first time through, then read with your child, letting him read all of the bolded words he can decode plus any remembered sight words. Books are short (8 pages each), small format (about 5.5 square) and illustrated with photographic images. Each book practices a specific sound: six short vowels (a, e, i, o, u, review), six long vowels (a, e, i, o, u, review), three vowel digraphs (ai, ee, oo), six blends (cr, gr, pr, sl, sn, sp), and three digraphs (ch, sh, wh). Vocabulary is (thankfully) controlled (unlike many readers), so your child can actually read these himself with little help. A bonus Activity Book contains a page per reader featuring the animal from each (bat for short a, etc.) with simple exercises and a space to draw the animal. Also included in the box are a short parent guide and a set of 16 stickers. A good value for sound learning.

      Written for homeschoolers by Rebecca Celsor, The Write Foundation Level 1 Sentence to Paragraph curriculum is not flashy but is certainly deep and incorporates biblical content. Lessons give step-by-step teaching instruction which help you teach your student how to be an independent writer. Emphasis is placed on the writing process, writing structure, and word usage (basic grammar and figures of speech). This level quickly advances from writing descriptive sentences to writing creative and informative paragraphs by teaching how to use the fundamentals of brainstorming, outlining, drafting and editing. Originally these lessons were designed for those who struggle with or dislike writing but this program works well for all students.  This curriculum can easily be used with 1-2 students or in a co-op setting.

      The basic daily lesson format is organized into 3 main areas: sentence structure (practicing grammar, developing sentences, vocabulary and figures of speech); paragraph and essay writing; and poetry instruction (to build vocabulary, grammar, and figures of speech within writing instruction context). The course provides 30 lessons guiding the student from sentence writing to 2-paragraph writings. Two schedules (5-day or 10-day per lesson options, from 30 min to 1.5 hours daily) complete the course in either one or two years.


      The teacher and students are equally engaged in the step-by-step process. All information needed to present each lesson is provided in the spiral teacher instruction manuals which include teaching instructions and Teacher Presentations (TP) which are examples and suggestions to help present the lessons. During the lesson, students discuss ideas with the teacher as the teacher models and highlights items using the Teacher Presentation (TP) information and student input while students copy and highlight on worksheets. Students practice grammar skills through sentence and poetry writing practice and through parts of speech games. The course includes poetry writing as a method of mastering language skills. Literature reading is also strongly recommended. Students choose from a provided list of books with pre-assigned points from 4 to 24 (based on challenge level); students read a minimum of 48 points worth per semester. This system provides variety and encourages students to read frequently. A final recommended component is Mind Benders Book 3 (#003026) to be used to train students to think logically.

      The driving force of the course is contained in the two spiral-bound Teacher Instruction manuals. Teaching instructions and Teacher Presentation (TP) information of examples and suggestions needed to present the lessons, is provided in the spiral-bound Teacher Instruction manuals. The instructions and Teacher Presentation information (TP) in the lessons guide you step-by-step in the daily lessons and show examples and suggestions for the materials discussed. The teaching format is more of a traditional teacher-guiding-the-students format. You, the teacher, will guide the discussion about different writing skills: sentence writing, paragraph writing, and poetry writing. As the students brainstorm or suggest possible answers, you explain the lesson material visually by writing possible answers on a white board or paper while students copy onto the student worksheets. The program allows flexibility. Also, optional technology is provided in the Digital Additional Resources to present each lesson on the computer. The online TP files are interactive, allowing the teacher to type information directly onto the daily lesson's Teacher Presentation (TP) on the computer as the teacher and student discuss and the student copies onto the student worksheets (WS). This original “tech design” requires a computer with Adobe Reader. Internet and Adobe Reader are required to access the digital daily Teacher Presentation (TP) pages. Not techie? Don’t be dismayed! This element is not required or even necessary to teach the course in either a co-op or a typical home setting: good ol’ paper or white board will suffice. With purchase of this product, you'll receive access to the digital and interactive resources through the publisher, The Write Foundation. If you desire the digital full-page Teacher Presentation (TP) lesson materials for teaching using the computer, this material must be downloaded from the publisher. Information is included in the Printed Additional Resources on how to get the Digital Additional Resources. The instructions also give you good direction in grading. Grading rubrics are provided for all student assignments.  A thorough explanation of grading, rubrics for each of the 29 lessons, rubrics for poetry, and how to compile a final grade is provided. The course grade will consist of three portions: composition, poetry, and literature. However, the publisher states that other books could be substituted.

      With this writing curriculum you'll receive one (1) set of student worksheets, two spiral bound Teacher Instructions (Lessons 1-15 and Lessons 16-30), and some Printed Additional Resources. Consumable Student Worksheets (about 230 pages) for one student come printed on 3-hole punched paper to be stored in a 3-ring binder (not provided). More student worksheets may be purchased on TheWriteFoundation.org for multiple students. Directions to more educational games and grading rubrics are included in the Printed Additional Resources. Students will also need a thesaurus, dictionary and highlighters in 6 different colors (pink, blue, yellow, green, orange, and purple). A list of student materials is provided in the Printed Additional Resources. ~ Ruth

    Looking for a fun way to increase your child's vocabulary? 180 reproducible cartoons are contained in this book, and each highlights a new word to learn for the day. It's like reading the comics, but a bit more educational. Verbs, nouns, and adjectives are all included, and the vocabulary words are all in common use. For each of the cartoons, one of the characters is saying something humorous within the context of what is going on in the picture. The vocabulary word is bolded within the cartoon, and the part of speech and definition of the word is given to the side. Two cartoons are displayed on every page of the book, and everything is in black and white. While black and white cartoons could be seen as a drawback (who doesn't love the colorful Sunday comics the best?), children could have fun and get more use out of the book by coloring the comics themselves. The vocabulary words are geared towards 4th-6th graders, but could be enjoyable for younger or older students depending on their vocabulary level. 94 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This is a ready-to-use spelling program for anybody who struggles with spelling difficulties from fourth grade through adult. Learning to spell through memorization just doesn't work for some people, and that is where this program comes in. Since approximately 85% of the English language follows consistent patterns and rules, this program focuses on its structural regularity. There are six basic concepts taught: sounds, syllables, word building, rules, generalizations, and compensatory strategies (for words not spelled in a regular way). There are two sections. The first addresses issues and concerns about how students feel about spelling, tests for checking student's knowledge in certain areas of spelling (like consonants, vowels, blends, digraphs, and sound/symbol correspondences), guidelines for assessing the student's needs, ways to teach irregular words, how and when to teach homonyms, teaching dictionary skills, and checking spelling with computers. The second section contains the 40 lessons. Each lesson consists of these same parts: getting started, introducing new information, practicing with individual words, practicing spelling in context, reinforcing activities, and extra interesting facts. Everything needed to present the lesson is given in the book. The philosophy and methodology of each part of the lessons are described in the introduction. Knowing this will help the teacher effectively present the lessons and activities to the student, helping them gain the confidence they need to succeed and excel. The activities are varied and interesting, and all 200 consumable activity sheets in the book are reproducible. This is a complete program for individual students or small group instruction, starting with the basics and working up. Each lesson takes several days to complete, though that pace can be determined according to the needs of the student. Answers included. 415 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Subtitled "Mastering Vocabulary with Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words," that pretty much sums it up! Students will deepen their understanding of the English language and expand their vocabulary through forty-one lessons. Each lesson is formatted with either a prefix(es), suffix(es), or root word(s) complete with the meaning and some sample words. New words built around these concepts follow, with definitions of each and a sample sentence that uses the word in context. Students are then asked to complete a practice section. These exercises vary in construct, including fill-in-the-blank, matching, identifying synonyms and antonyms, identifying the best context for the word, and more. Following every second lesson is a review page that tests students on the concepts and words they learned in the previous two lessons. Very doable and user friendly. ~ Megan
