      The six chapters cover categories that are common in your children’s lives: All about Me, Around the House, At School, People and Places, Through the Year (Holidays, calendar language, etc.), and Communicating (greetings, opposites, manners, etc.). Each page uses a cartoon of a young child to demonstrate the American Sign Language (ASL) signs. Directional arrows are shown as needed. An inset with each sign shows a photograph of the activity or item signed. (These pictures often show action and would be good conversation starters as well. The word and a brief definition is included. 9 1/4x10 1/4", 112, sc. ~ Ruth

    Based on the three-point instructional method: "this is;" "show me;" and "what is?" as well as an underlying Socratic question/answer format, ShillerMath Language Arts is Montesorri at its best. The totally scripted teaching manuals each provide a semester's worth of daily lessons (71-84 lessons in each book). Kit 1 (Books 1-4) is designed for ages 3-5. We understand there will be two more levels: Books 5-8 are for ages 4-7; Books 9-12 are for ages 6-8. If these age levels seem a bit odd to you (they do to me as well), it's because there are two levels of things happening here. One is phonics instruction and the other is an amazing/exciting combination of language arts "more." For example, here are the "more" topics covered on the Book 4 Review Test imitate (speaking, listening, reading, writing), introduce yourself, repeating 5 words back in order, articles (as in part of speech), retelling a story, emotions (tell me about a time when . . .), touch typing (home position basics), rhyming words, identifying adjectives, describing basic geographic features, describing peripheral vision, naming the months of the year, naming first ten ordinal numbers, comparisons, copying a very diverse collection of shapes, showing directions, and, lastly, identifying Shakespeare and naming a sonnet. The bottom line is that there is a lot of learning going on here and a lot of flexibility. An older student (5 years) might start with Kit 1 and fly through the learning but still come away with new information.

    Lessons require no preparation and vary in both length and complexity. There is also great variety in the content which is why the teacher is encouraged to skip lessons if the student is not ready for its content. Since one of the basic premises of Montesorri education is that children are natural learners, the teacher's role is to provide a learning-friendly environment and the proper tools. Students are usually the best gauge of their own competence and will know when they have closure on a topic so be prepared to be flexible and sensitive. There is a checklist included, as the back cover of each lesson book is to be used to record when a lesson is completed.

    A good part of Montessori instruction is managing the dialog between teacher and student. Although appropriate wording is modeled in the lessons, there is also general information at the front of the Lesson Books on building an environment conducive to learning.

    As mentioned before the Lesson Books are totally scripted. This means that everything you need to say to the student is provided for you. For instance, Lesson 24, Book 4 practices comparative terminology. There are eight points to the lesson. The first point covers "est" words and comparing three or more things. The second point talks about the "er" words and comparing two things. Then there are five sets of pictures of various objects to compare starting with three objects of varying sizes but progressing to four and six objects. About 95 pgs each, spiral-bound.

    The lesson on emotions is illustrative of the different directions this curriculum takes. First we are told that "emotions are what we feel." There are pictures of four children illustrating these emotions: shy, sad, jealous, and sorry. As part of the lesson the child is encouraged to demonstrate how she/he feels with each of those emotions as well as to tell a story about a time when he/she was . . . . . All in all, an interesting and excellent introduction to an intriguing subject.

    The Mother Goose Book includes 358 "stories." These are to be used as part of each day's lessons (read-aloud) and can be requested by the child as desired. These stories are printed in large print and would be read by the child (if able). There are multiple stories on each page. Please note there are no illustrations at all in the book. 152 pgs. spiral-bound.

    The Lesson Mat needs to be mentioned. It is large (22" x 34") and cream-colored. Fabric is some sort of foam but the touch is velvety. It is slightly stretchy in one direction. This mat is used with all lessons and serves as a portable workspace allowing you to take your lessons anywhere inside (or outside) of the house.

    The Kit contents all have a purpose within the lessons. While most of the items are somewhat typical (letters, numbers, crayons, Play-Doh), that is not true of the Montessori shapes manipulatives. There are ten shapes (square, circle, triangle, rectangle, trapezoid, quatrefoil, pentagon, oval, elipse, and curvilinear triangle) illustrated two different ways: blue shapes with molded lifters and ten matching pink stencil shapes. Stencils are 5.5" squares; shapes are various sizes with 3 7/8" square being the largest.

    Kit 1 includes Lesson Books 1-4; foam mat; magnetic alphabet (uppercase & lowercase letters plus numbers); quinoa grain, washable large crayons; shapes with knobs and matching bases (10), 4 tubs of Play-Doh; book of Mother Goose Rhymes; and CD with 24 language arts songs. ~ Janice

    This is the most comprehensive sign language flash card set we carry! The thorough set contains 500 double-sided flashcards (3" x 4 ½"). The front of each card features a color photograph of a woman signing (with directional arrows where appropriate), while the back of each card lists the name of the sign with the signing instructions written out. Related words/signs are indexed on the back of the cards for assistance when building sentences. For example, on the card demonstrating the sign for "accept," cross-references appear for the words "agree," "work (job)," and "yes." Each card is numbered and labeled in alphabetical order for easy reference, and the top left hand corner of each card is hole-punched for attaching the cards on the included key ring (if desired). A helpful pamphlet contains general ASL tips, and the sturdy cardboard hinged-lid box provides durable storage for the cards. ~ Lisa

    Beginning Spanish and French students will find much to discover in these fun DK kits. Each kit includes an book, flash cards, and an audio CD. The book really consists of three separate books, conveniently compiled into one volume. The three "books" are an Activity Book, Picture Dictionary Wordbook, and a Bilingual Dictionary. The Activity Book consists of 26 themed topics and introduces children to common phrases and basic vocabulary pertaining to everyday situations—such as greetings, school, or at a picnic. The lessons feature color photos of school-aged children (with bilingual speech bubbles), as well as colorful graphics, tips, and vocabulary games.The audio CD corresponds to each of the lessons, and students are encouraged to listen to the CD (to develop an ear for native dialogue and pronunciation) while they follow along in the book. The Picture Dictionary contains colorful photos of people, places and objects with the Spanish or French words (and English translations) written below. The Bilingual Dictionary contains translations for 2000 of the most commonly-used Spanish or French words. The flashcards consist of five sets of twelve flashcards covering food, clothes, objects, numbers and animals. The flashcards can be used to play the games in the Activity Book, or they can be used by themselves to study vocabulary words. The multisensory appeal of this kit should inspire even the most reluctant foreign language students. ~ Lisa

    This sign language book is a very complete guide to signing. While it would be hard to get every sign into a book, this covers almost every sign you would need. But it doesn't just hand you the signs, it also gives you detailed instructions and information on when to use particular signs, and other helpful explanations. For example, because sign language lacks audible intonation, you learn to watch facial expression to see if the speaker is serious, sarcastic, or scared. And because sign language contains fewer words than the English language, the deaf form sentences differently, leaving out short words such as "that", "the", and "did" that don't have meaning by themselves. After you've learned the basics, you begin with simple but important signs, like how to introduce yourself and respond to an introduction. After displaying the signs, the book gives extensive samples and activities to help you fully understand how and when to use the signs. As new signs are introduced, they are used alongside previously covered words in sample conversations and sentences until you are comfortable with them. A couple of pages are spent discussing each new group of words, both alone and in sentences. Instruction is given on keeping all the signs in the right order when signing longer sentences. After learning common signs and phrases, the chapters begin to cover signs used less frequently. You will learn pronouns, family members, places, times, feelings, days, months, question words, replies, everyday signs, jobs, objects, and tons of other words. Mixed in throughout are activities, reviews, and rules to further understanding and fluency. - Melissa
