    Is your student ready for the hard questions? This study puts it this way: "Do the good ideas we find in scripture match reality better than any of the false ideas opposed to scripture?" In nine weeks of study, your student will be introduced to those questions, have the opportunity to examine and think about them; talk about the different ways to respond and become much better prepared to give an account for the hope that is his. In the form of a devotional, each of nine weekly lessons provides a study centered around one topic (understanding worldview; nature of man; nature of God; four types of worldview; how do you know?; ideas have consequences; sacred/secular dichotomy; apologetics and evangelism; and finding your identity in Christ.) A relatively brief essay (usually around 4 pages) is followed by questions for the student to think through and answer (space is provided). The week's study concludes with a set of discussion questions, clearly begging for interaction either as a family or perhaps a small group of friends. Scripture references and reading assignments are integrated into the questions encouraging the student to think deeply on these things for a bit rather than plowing through on a comprehension-only type of approach. Due to the devotional and discussion approach of this study, there is no answer key.

    Concise and to the point, but still very applicable and practical, this is for those who may not want to complete a really extensive course, but still want a course with good discussion topics and thoughtful questions. There are suggestions for further reading/study in both the endnotes and on the author's website (Worldview Academy). 72 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Incorporating full color photos and childlike drawings, this first dictionary's layout is orderly and easily draws the reader's eyes across the page. On each two-page layout words are grouped according to interesting themes of importance to pre- and early readers. Topics start with "me," move to family and community, then nature, etc., then finish with key pre-K concepts such as colors, money, opposites, and action words. In each topic, words are used to form 2-3 sample sentences which include Dolch sight words. Some of the occupation pictures are caricatures: the scientist is "mad" and the farmer is slovenly. Overall, this is an appealing early dictionary to help young ones associate the written word with the people and things around them. 9" x 11", 96 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    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 student's 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 you'd like to try having a "letter of the week" with your preschooler, there are certainly enough ideas here to last! 240 pgs.

    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 one's vocabulary. Instead of small a child could use: wee, dwarf, teeny, tiny, petite, itsy-bitsy, minuscule, puny, little, meager, or insufficient! Now that's a nice variety, don't 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

    "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

    Practicing phonics just got a whole lot more fun! Picture an entire box full of onset and rime puzzle pieces, just waiting for word construction by phonetic construct. 220 letter puzzle pieces to be exact, consisting of word family pieces (-ead, -ee, -ub, -out, -ice, -at; 90 in all), consonant blends (bl-, fr-, kn-, str-; 2 each of 30), initial consonants (b, c…..z; 3 each of 20), and consonant digraphs (2 each of ch-, wh-, sh-, th-, and ph-). Pieces are cut so that all beginnings and endings are interchangeable, but stay put when attached. Pieces are color-coded for easy segregation. The included Resource Guide has a word family reference list, directions, teaching suggestions, and five game and activity ideas. Many more await your invention (Random matching is always fun—just reaching into the box and pulling out four chunks produced the words "gruff prone". Is that what an unhappy person is?). I also like that the chunks are shown printed on dotted middle-line ruling, allowing you to use for handwriting practice of the words. Just set atop some ruled practice paper for copying. Pieces are made from heavy cardboard (thicker than standard puzzle pieces) and have a glossy finish. I thought it would be cool if you could use the non-printed side to construct your own onsets and rimes to add on to the set. Guess what? My Expo® marker erased without a trace! So, you can use dry erase marker for one-time use of the blank sides, or use a permanent marker if you want to keep your additions. That makes this set even more versatile. You could even draw dry- erase shapes or letters across the backs of intended matches to make them self-checking.

    "I want to become a Navy SEAL." Those words might rouse admiration, courage, trepidation and possibly disbelief. As a parent, how do you respond? Bravely, the author's father, after his initial disbelief, supported his son's dream by providing a mentor and training partner who later was brutally murdered in Iraq. This captivating story gives parents and teens a front and center seat in the journey from US Navy recruit training, SEAL training in BDU/S, Hell week, and multiple tours of duty with SEAL teams 1 and 7. Through his eyes, we see him experience grief at the loss of his mentor, battling with the party lifestyle, experiencing the horrors of war and the power of grace and salvation. While horrifying, the events experienced are written with discretion, making this an inspiring option for families to discover the true meaning of sacrifice: "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." 284 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    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.
