    Maybe a little extra practice is all that is needed for your child to master phonics and/or reading skills. This book is formatted in such a logical way that it would work well as reinforcement for any phonics program. It teaches a variety of phonograms and addresses several core reading skills. The more phonograms a child recognizes, the more they can read and spell, and as recognition improves so does comprehension.

    120 of the most essential word families are arranged into 20 different packets. Each packet consists of 10 pages. Page 1 introduces 6 new word families such as ad, at, ap, ag, am, an. 9 activity pages follow, which are designed to appeal to a variety of learning styles and address core reading skills. Reading skills and aspects of phonetic analysis include previewing, blending, isolating, decoding, rhyming, comprehending, deducing, and attending. Learning styles are addressed by incorporating, listening skills, writing, reading, and visual activities.

    The activities in this book can be used as independent work, small group or even whole class practice. The flexibility of this program lends itself to being used in a number of ways. Students can do the book as a complete program and work through all 20 packets in order to cover all the content in the book. Use the activities to target specific phonograms by working on just the activities that cover those specific phonograms. Cover just the reading skills needed by the student by following the labels in the top right corner of each activity page.

    The scope and sequence chart at the front of the book provides at-a-glance content for each packet to make your planning a bit easier. This black and white, reproducible book will provide the extra practice you need for your family or classroom.

    Providing a range of activities and ideas for teaching about each letter of the alphabet, this book is filled with reproducible pages to use in your classroom. The book is organized by letter, and the pages provided for each letter follow the same format. In writing this description, I will use the a pages as the example, with the understanding by you that these pages are duplicated for the other letters of the alphabet. The first pages offer a large uppercase A and a large lowercase a. These blank letters can either be colored by the students or covered by them with something starting with that letter (acorns, apple seeds, airplane stickers, etc.). The next several pages (varies between 2 and 8) offer ideas for activities or things to talk about that begin with that letter. For example, you can learn about animals that start with a, teach about acorns, help students learn their address, read a story about being afraid, look at an album, go apple picking, visit an aquarium, measure students arms, make an awesome aunt award, and talk about autumn. These are a just a few of the ideas provided you can pick and choose however many you want or come up with your own. Some of the ideas could be built into a whole field trip; others can be completed within the comfort of your home in just a few minutes. These pages of ideas are followed by a list of additional a words that may come up naturally in conversation throughout the week. Next there is a page of labeled picture cards (objects that start with a) and a page of word cards (words that start with a). A few ideas for using these are provided, or you can come up with your own activities. The last two pages of the section focus on writing. The first page holds lines for students to practice tracing and then writing A and a; the second provides more of the same along with lines for writing a few a words and a place to draw a picture of something that start with the letter a. This last page is designated as a page for an alphabet book, so when students complete all of the letters you can staple them together to make their book. If youd like to try having a letter of the week with your preschooler, there are certainly enough ideas here to last! 240 pgs.

    A planner should be _______. Ask a hundred teens how to fill in the blank and I’ve no doubt this planner will measure up. First of all, it’s amazingly practical and usable. Spiral bound; backpack-sized size (7� x8.5� ); pleasing, subtle-hued graphics; plasticized covers; and, undoubtedly, whatever content page you might possibly want. Its fill-in-the-date approach allows for maximum flexibility. Twelve monthly (two-page) schedules provide an inspirational scripture, interesting brain facts, roomy daily squares, and places for notes. Weekly (two-page) schedules (48) provide five lined boxes per day, a place to keep track of SAT words, and an inspirational quote as well as places for doodles, notes and appointments. Extra (and useful) pages abound: U.S. and world maps, periodic table, guides to pronunciation, italics, and capitalization – and much more. Also included is a nice collection of record-keeping, transcript-planning, and college-prepping pages. You’ll want to tuck this planner away in a memorabilia box when you’re through. In addition to all the academic information, there’s a journal-type section for “my favorite things� (i.e. movies, books, friends, etc.) as well as a couple of pages devoted to “dreaming� and writing out goals.

A small row at the very bottom of the chart is labeled DINNER, so you can keep track of the menu for that night, the time dinner will be served or even who is responsible for cooking the meal. At the end of the week, rip off the top sheet and start organizing the next. 9 x 12 pad holds 50 sheets and has a magnetic strip on the back. Megan

    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. Its a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin foli, meaning leaf. After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled Comic Re-Leaf. It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page Turn Over a New Leaf presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncles Umbrella might read, Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf. After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.

    Lefties, this planner is for you! Spiral binding on the right and planning pages on the left! It begins with a year-at-a-glance calendar page, and then proceeds to weekly calendar views. The left-hand side of each two-page spread shows Monday through Sunday of a given week, while the opposite page has fun facts, trivia, or quotes from famous lefties. The calendar dates are arranged from top to bottom; each has its own 7 wide by 1 tall horizontal white strip for jotting notes. Holidays and birthdays of famous lefties are noted. Planner covers January through December of the current year. The cover depicts a vintage-like illustration of a left hand writing with a pen. A fun, unique gift for the southpaw on your list! ~ Lisa

    Word problems are a fun way to build logic and comprehension skills. These particular problems focus on language rather than math. Children have to pay close attention to the wording and details to solve the problems. Introduce a problem a day as a warm up activity. Because these are made for young students, the vocabulary and situations are relatable and familiar, built around a family named the Wordlys. There is a performance assessment after every 7 problems, and 77 total problems (not counting the testing opportunities.) Here is a problem from the middle of the book called Pajama Drawer:

    First is the word problem, The youngest Wordly boys dresser holds his pajamas, pants, & shirts. The dresser has 3 drawers. Each type of clothing is in a separate drawer. The middle drawer holds his shirts. His pants are in the bottom drawer. In which drawer are his pajamas? Then you talk about it, Are his pants & pajamas in the same drawer? (no) How many drawers are there? (3) How many different types of clothing are there? (3) The next step is called picture it: (materials: paper & pencil) Draw 3 drawers. Draw to show where the shirts are. Draw where the pants are. Draw where his pajamas are. And finally, the solution: The pajamas are in the top drawer.

    The performance assessments have this same format, the students are just doing it without any help from you. In the back is a page index where you can look up a certain skill such as time, money, shape, sequence, etc. The problems are short and sweet, as a warm up should be, but are enough to get your little learners thinking critically and actively.

    Retire those overused words and replace them with more vivid vocabulary. This workbook is rather like a thesaurus activity book for kids. Some of the overused words include: big, cold, few, happy, loud, play, sad, and small. Sound familiar? Then your student is probably in need of this handy workbook. Each overused word has two activities to go with it to broaden ones vocabulary. Instead of small a child could use: wee, dwarf, teeny, tiny, petite, itsy-bitsy, minuscule, puny, little, meager, or insufficient! Now thats a nice variety, dont you think? Learning new words increases reading comprehension, writing, and speaking skills. Choose one word a week and keep a list of the alternative words on a wall in your classroom. With 30 common words and loads of synonyms, this will go a long way towards improving word skills in a school year. Pages may be reproduced for your classroom use only. 96 pgs, pb. ~Sara

    This daily devotional book presents an important Greek word or phrase from the New Testament every day of the year. The author covers the meaning of these important words as well as their cultural context. At the bottom of each explanation, there are a few scripture references for further study and a question or two to help expand your understanding of the Bible. For example, on January 2, the author presents huiothesia, the Greek word for adoption. After an explanation of the word and the cultural tradition surrounding adoption, he points you to Romans 8:15 and asks, Because of our adoption, what emotion do we need never feel again? Then, he asks, In Ephesians 1:5, what is the basis of our adoption and its result? Each daily study is only a page in length or less, which allows it to fit easily into your day. The author provides a helpful chart at the front of the book to help you know how to pronounce Greek letters, though I would have preferred pronunciation markings for each individual word, due to the possible changes for accented vs. unaccented syllables. The book includes instructions for further study, notes, bibliography, scripture index, English word index, Greek and Hebrew word index, and Strongs number index. This book makes a great devotional and would also make a great supplement for courses in Bible or in Greek. 410 pgs, pb ~ Caryl

There are many famous patriotic poems, songs, and prose recorded for you to reflect on and enjoy as well. After each inspiring piece is a short explanation of the circumstances and events that influenced the person writing the composition. The writings are also accompanied by historical paintings and photos that help visually tell our countrys history. Overall, there is a lot of history packed into one small book.

    All words are pegs to hang ideas on. I can ignore the fact that this sentence ends in a preposition because I like the message by Henry Ward Beecher, Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit. It also opens lesson 1 in this book. I really quite like the lay out here and I think kids and parents will too. Forty two lessons of 12 words each should take you a school year to cover if you do one lesson a week. Lessons can easily be student-led or teacher-led. The 12 words are shown in a quick-view list, and then each has a definition with 3 sentences as examples. So nice! Kids then read a passage that includes all of the new words. Two (varying) exercises give students a chance to apply their new vocabulary in practice. See how practical this book could be for you? All words are indexed in the back (to be used on a final exam perhaps.) Answer key is in the back for self-checking. Pages may not be reproduced. 202pgs, pb ~ Sara
