    Pam Conrad brings you this gripping log of Pedro de Salcedo, who was aboard the great voyage with Christopher Columbus from August 3rd of 1492 to February 14th of 1493. Pedro is a young man of only fourteen, and it is his first time away from home. The captain quickly makes him a sort of right-hand man. Pedro watches how intensely the men doubt Columbus from the beginning. The day before they finally touch land, Columbus promises they will turn around home. As fate would have it, the next day they land in a place Columbus names San Salvador. Here they gain experience with the natives, who are extremely docile and generous. In each place they land on, the people gradually become unfriendly - perhaps some words of caution were spread? Soon enough, the entire crew realizes they have not landed in India and there are no spices or silks or pearls. In fact, nobody except Columbus cares about anything except heading home to Spain at this point. After the sinking of the Santa Maria, some of the men board the Nina to go home, and the others are left behind to start a Spanish settlement in the New World. Pedro fears he may not ever return home. On the last day at sea, he encases a last letter into a barrel and throws it out to the ocean so that if it ever reaches his home, his mother should know that he loves her and she should pray for his soul. This recounting is sometimes suspenseful, troubling, and mystifying, but at all times it is engaging.

    The Teacher Edition has reduced student pages with teaching helps "around the edges." These helps include correlating pages from the support materials, teaching options, grammar connections, warm-ups, practice activities, answers, CCSS notations, and, my favorite, tech tips (i.e. suggestions for correct e-usage). Additionally, the TE (with divider tabs to help navigate between the grammar, writing, diagramming, and handbook segments) also includes introductory information for each genre study - literature links, and writer's workshop tips.

    This classic by Thor Heyerdahl tells the remarkable true story of Heyerdahl and his small five-man crew that sailed from South America to the Polynesians in 1947. The remarkable thing about this voyage is that it was completed on a nine-log raft with no modern conveniences used to construct or sail. Heyerdahl was trying to prove that Polynesians may have originated in South America and then sailed 4,300 miles across the Pacific Ocean to settle hundreds or thousands of years ago. He was intrigued by Polynesian folklore about a mythical hero named Kon-Tiki who came from distant lands to start a civilization and decided to prove his theory that ancient people easily could have sailed across oceans to migrate. The three months the crew spent in the open water is full of exploration, storms, whales, sharks, and more. This exciting story is so full of daring, courage, and adventure that it's almost hard to believe it's a true story. A 48-page readers' supplement is included in the middle of the book that gives an ultra-condensed version of the story and includes black and white photographs from the actual voyage. A fascinating book and great library builder. 240 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This fast-paced book tells the dramatic story of the 1839 voyage of the schooner Amistad and her cargo of Africans bound for slavery in the New World. It's a true tale of mutiny on the high seas when the Africans, lead by Cinque, a young African farmer, revolt and seize control of the ship. The liberated Africans then start for home, but instead of reaching Africa, they wind up in New England. The results of these events, and the trial that ensued became front-page news. Were Cinque and the others rebellious slaves and mutineers? Were they property that must be returned to its rightful owners? Or, were they simply honest men and women trying to regain their freedom? 113 pgs.

    Enthusiastic users of Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World will be excited to rediscover the modern era, “From Victoria’s Empire to the End of the USSR.” Formatted similarly to the previous volumes in the series, the Modern Age text contains 42 chapters highlighting some of the major people, places and events in world history, from 1850 to 2000. Some highlights include: the Crimean war, the American Civil War, the Second Reich, the Japan’s Meiji restoration, the Suez canal, the Boers, Western expansion in the U.S., the Boxer Rebellion in China, the Mexican Revolution, the rise of Joseph Stalin, Hitler’s rise to power, the Holocaust, the Atom bomb, the partitioning of Palestine, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Chernobyl, the end of Communism, and much more. As usual, students will get a “balanced” view of world history, with events from nearly every country in the world - not just Europe and the U.S. Each “story” from history is told in an exciting, readable way, which is sure to hold students’ attention - especially as they cover history in the not-too-distant past! The activity book is once again substantial and invaluable, containing both teacher and student portions. The parent’s pages feature review questions with answers, guidelines for an outlining exercise for the student, suggested further reading and literature tie-ins, map activities, and hands-on projects related to the topics covered in the text. As usual, the projects are very creative and I can definitely see kids getting excited about doing them - one of the activities for Chapter One definitely caught my eye! In this activity, kids will get to time themselves and compare “loading” two different “rifles” with cardboard tubes, homemade “cartridges,” and a few other kitchen materials! The parent’s portion for each chapter also features cross-references on the same topic to other resources, including the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, the Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, the Usborne Book of World History, the Usborne History of the 20th Century, and the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia. The student’s portion of the activity guide includes partial outlines for each chapter for them to finish, outline maps for map activities, worksheet activities, and timeline figures including world flags from each country’s independence or establishment. The tests and answers for this volume are bound into a paperback, 3-hole punched volume, and include tests and answers for each chapter. Once again, Susan Wise Bauer has put together a very exciting and multi-faceted history study that everyone will love!

    The text is now available in either paperback, hardcover, or spiral binding, for your convenience. The Activity Book is a bound paperback. - Jess

    Sure, we all study astronomy in high school, but does the astronomy you studied help you to navigate, tell time, or even identify the planets as they appear to us in the sky? Probably not, if you, like me and many others, studied astronomy primarily as ½Å"modern astronomy" which offers dazzling telescopic photos of the planets, and information based on measurements made by astronomers. So, what's the difference? Classical astronomy is based on how humans on earth view the sky, and how we can learn the patterns of movement of the sun, moon and stars and apply this knowledge for practical use. This is the way astronomy has been studied for centuries, before we developed high-tech instruments to satisfy our never-ending curiosity about the surfaces of other planets, the structure of stars and planets, and what else is out there.

    To fulfill this purpose, Signs & Seasons focuses on learning classical astronomy through the cycles of movement of celestial bodies and how these change through a day, a month, and a year. The course is written from a Biblical standpoint, and author Jay Ryan reminds us that keeping time through the days, months, and seasons were actually the purpose that the sun, moon, and stars were created. Seven chapters (and an epilogue) cover an introduction to the sky, day, night, the cycle of the month, the position of the sun in the sky and its' apparent movement to us, the cycle of the month, the seasonal stars, ½Å"wandering" stars (planets), and the calendar. Topics studied within include the divisions of the day, astronomical alignments, the circle of the meridian, phases of the moon, eclipses and why they occur, changes in the sky through the seasons, the motions of the planets, and much more. Historical information is woven throughout the text, which ties together what we observe in the skies today, and what ancient astronomers learned from viewing the same sky years ago.

    Each chapter is formatted like a science text, with very readable, fascinating text accompanied by large, clear, grayscale illustrations that follow along and offer a visual component that matches the reading. The diagrams that show the movement of the stars are especially helpful, as they show their change in position over time, from the ground, so they should be similar to what you observe in the night sky. Quotes from the Bible, famous astronomers, and various other places are scattered throughout the text, and in keeping with the ½Å"classical" theme, historical woodcuts and vintage art also accompany the text.

    Following the text portion of the book, you'll find a section of ½Å"field activities" to be used with each chapter. These include making and maintaining a field journal to record all of your observations, sketching diagrams of the sun, moon and stars and doing hands-on manipulative activities with a globe and cardboard models. Activities are given for all major topics covered which allow you to see the astronomical topics in practice and are sure to make them very memorable! Guiding questions accompany the observation activities and give students a guideline for their journal entries as they observe. Although there are no study or review questions found in the book chapters, keep an eye out for the accompanying workbook that will be available soon. An appendix at the end of the book holds a glossary, bibliographies of quoted authors, astronomical tables for viewing the stars and planets, a bibliography and index. So, if you think you've already covered astronomy, sit tight and enjoy this course which helps you understand what you actually see when you look up at the stars at night. 262 pages, hardcover. ½" Jess

    This book is full of worksheets to drill students on the rules of spelling. It has worksheets for 150 days and incorporates scripture from the Bible, including KJV, NKJV, and NIV versions. One spelling rule is introduced each week and until is has covered many of the most prominent spelling rules. The book then supplies short, simple daily drills to helps students memorize the rules. These lessons should be completed quickly and easily in no more than ten minutes a day. There are no lists and no tests, but every tenth day there is a review of the previously learned rules. Students then apply the rules by completing scripture, puzzles, and sentences. Most of the answers are somewhat obvious because the activities give a word box or list to draw answers from and the rest can usually be figured out by process of elimination, but a key is provided. The book focuses only on common spelling rules and does not provide drills for their exceptions. Once students are comfortable with a rule, they can look in the back for a list of exceptions. A simple way to enhance spelling for those who need it. ~ Rachel S.

    Are you like me? Color and beauty make me happy. A well-organized, common-sensible planner makes me want to plan. When both are wrapped up into one user-friendly, cheerful, full-of-extras package, I'm ready to grab my pen!

    First, let's talk about the basics. Each week has a two-page spread in the spiral-bound (lies flat) 8.5 x 11" planner. Days (Mon-Fri) are across the top (three on left-hand page; two on right-hand page). Each of these columns has five subject sections (Bible, Math, History, Science, English). Each of these sections has four lines. In other words, for each day, and each subject, you can briefly record a 2 " line for each of three or four children or use two lines for two children or four lines for one child. There are additional boxes (total of seven lines) at the bottom of each column any other subjects. Each of these lines in each column ends with a small colored box for check-offs. The remaining vertical column on the right-hand page has lined space to record weekly priorities, daily dinner menus, and weekend activities.  Each week includes a Bible verse on one page and a notable quote (think inspirational Facebook status posts) on the other. 

    Now for the extras - sample planner page, place to insert a family picture and record family memories, a weekly cleaning schedule, special projects page (monthly boxes with reminders of those easy-to-forget occasional cleaning tasks), important contacts, children chore cards (perforated and ready to tear out), teacher schedule, class plan (curriculum) and student schedules for four children,  semester goals, monthly calendar with accompanying page to record books to read, field trips, and monthly expenses, perforated shopping lists (set of six for each month), semester accomplishments, attendance records, and grade recording sheets. There is also two year at a glance calendars-current year and the upcoming year.

    A set of four perforated, cardstock report cards are in the back (Each month is inaugurated with an encouraging article and has its own color scheme vibrant, subtle, cool, warm each satisfying. The graphic theme (which changes each year) is lively, and frankly, delightful. An extravagant claim perhaps, but I'll stick by it - using this planner will remind you daily that homeschooling is a wonderful calling, full of beauty and grace. Janice

    What do crows, peacocks, and bird nest soup have in common? They're just a few of the fun and fascinating things that your student will WANT to write about. Within its 24 lessons (a year's worth) it covers TWSS Units 1-7 (taking notes, summarizing narrative stories, writing from pictures, mini-research report, and creative writing) and several stylististic elements. Teacher prep is non-existent – you only need to read through the lessons with your student and be prepared to be "wowed" by their writing (and, of course, do a little evaluating). Although your student will want to make a final portfolio copy of their writing assignments, all the preliminary work – outlines, brainstorming charts, along with checklists – are provided in the consumable, 159-page spiral-bound text. Appendices include: banned words & prepositions and substitutes, -ly words. The purchaser may download an optional accompanying teacher e-book from the publisher's website. ~ Janice

    Like the other terrific books in the Painless series, this one endeavors to make learning easier and more enjoyable, without skipping out on any of the "meat." We begin with a description of government in general and a comparative look at the founding father's view of democracy versus how it actually operates in America today. We then learn about the Constitution and how it forms the basis for our government, civil liberties and civil rights, the legislative, executive and judicial branches of the federal government, our election system, political parties, and much more. The book also includes discussion questions and quizzes, to use either as self-evaluation, or for more formal assessment. Easy to use, and enjoyable to read, this would make an excellent supplement to an American history program, or a great introductory-level read before starting a heavier-weight government course in high school. Answer key included. - Jess
