    Give your child a lift-the-flap book to help him connect the written word with objects in his life. This is an ideal way to give your beginners practice in word recognition. Vocabulary is categorized by theme: On the Farm; I Can . . ., (actions); My Body and Clothes; Outdoor Words; On the Beach; What do They Say (animal sounds); and The Bedroom. Often, the focus of similar books is to introduce nouns; this one includes some verbs as well. Children learn the written word by either lifting the picture flap or lifting the written word flap. Below each flap, the opposite form is represented. This way, children can check their answers and learn to identify words. Pages are full color, quite pleasing, and not distracting. The last two pages list, in picture and written form, all 72 words used.

    This classic description of the contributions of the ancient Greeks to Western civilization was written by Edith Hamilton in the 1930s. With excitement and an obvious love for the culture, the author tells the story of how the Greeks in Athens developed a new way of life in the Western world around the 5th century BC. Stressing the importance of freedom and reason, Hamilton covers Greek philosophy, art, writing, politics, religion, lifestyle, and more. She also compares these aspects of culture to other people groups at the time to show how the Greeks were and are different. Various people like Plato, Socrates, Aeschylus, and Pindar are highlighted, and parallels are drawn between figures such as Aeschylus and Shakespeare and Aristophanes and William S. Gilbert. While describing the historical high of Greek culture and influence, the author shows how the world is still affected by this culture, their philosophy, and their way of life. Filled with examples, the book shows how and why the ancient Greeks still influence our world. 212 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    As a busy homeschool mom, my desire to journal was fraught with best intentions that never became reality. Blank pages, dated journals, and even memory-focused journals gathered dust as they sat neglected on the shelf. I wish someone had introduced me to the concept of "guilt free" journaling all those years ago. I may have actually enjoyed journaling success! Beginning with a letter to "Busy Mom" and journaling tips for busy moms, permission is given to journal in a way that reflects your current season of life, whether that means daily journaling or a monthly effort. Moms seeking to be more consistent in journaling will find the included realistic tips a breath of fresh air. "Scriptural Promises for Busy Moms" offers encouragement to the stressed out mom who's in need of a special touch. The journal provides lined pages which invite you to share "words along the way" that are defined by you, the journalist - prayer requests, favorite scriptures, and highlights of the day, struggles and success stories. A simple pastel flower adds a muted background to the pages. Give yourself permission to journal, in your own way, basking in the encouragement poured out in these pages from the popular and busy homeschool mom Heidi St. John. Spiral bound. ~Deanne

    One of the big things that keeps students from producing fluid and powerful writing is the lack of originality and effectiveness in transitions. This guidebook is designed to help writers connect ideas and create a smooth flow of sentences and paragraphs. It is conveniently divided and thumb-indexed into 15 categories, each containing one page with a helpful list of transitional words to use for that method of transitioning. Categories are: to indicate time order (presently, afterward, etc.); to indicate how or when something occurs in time (suddenly, always, etc.); to indicate sequence (first, next, etc.); to repeat (all in all, in short, etc.); to provide an example (for instance, to clarify, etc.), to concede (granted, albeit, etc.); to conclude (in conclusion, therefore, etc.); to add a point (moreover, plus, etc.); to compare (similarity, in the same way, etc.); to contrast (and yet, however, etc.); to indicate cause and effect (incidentally, therefore, etc.); to divide or classify (first, to split, etc.); to indicate spatial arrangement (in, adjoining, etc.); to emphasize or intensify (above all, to stress, etc.); and to connect clauses (and, as though, etc.). A page full of substitutes for the word "said" is also provided, allowing students to vary the way they express that word as well. These word lists (with dozens of words per category) are a great reference for students who tend to use the same words and expressions in their writing. While this book is simply a reference with lists of transitional words (which is great to use independently), it also works with A Writer's Guide to Using 8 Methods of Transition, a companion guide that teaches how to use all the methods of transition. With 1,000 entries in all and 500 substitutions for "said", this handy guide is a valuable reference. 20 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Everyone in school thinks that Mr. Lincoln, the principal, is the coolest principal ever. He takes the classes on trips and does activities with them. Everyone loves him - everyone but Eugene, that is. On the other hand, everyone in school knows that Eugene is trouble. Big trouble. He pushes little kids and takes their things, starts fights, and calls other students nasty names. The other teachers have just about had it with Eugene, but Mr. Lincoln thinks he may just know the key to getting through to him… Author Patricia Polacco tells a beautiful story of about one wise and patient man with the love and persistence to show a troubled kid that everyone is special, and that there are people that care about him.

    Brilliantly formatted in landscape orientation, these 2-sided, perforated pages are perfect for practicing word families and sight words. Blackline illustrations are cute, and the appealing activities are right-sized for the little learner. The first half of the 208 activity pages reinforce short vowel, long vowel with silent e, other long vowel phonograms, variant vowel (-all, -aw, -ook, -ool, -oot), diphthongs and r-controlled vowel (-oil, -own, -ar, -ore, -orn) families. The format of each 2-sided spread is consistent with 5 practice sections per word family. First, children write words from the family. Three onsets are provided, plus three blank lines if they want to include more on their own. Next is a coloring activity to identify pictured family members. On the reverse side, children match a word to its image, fill in the bubble corresponding to the word that isnt part of the family and, finally, draw a picture of their favorite family word. The 104 sight words in the Sight Word portion were chosen from the Dolch Basic Sight Word Vocabulary List. Each single-page presentation includes tracing and writing the word (good to cement memory) and a coloring activity of some type. Helpful teacher pages at the front give suggestions and tips for page use, include a word family reference list and the entire 220-word Dolch sight word vocabulary list, and provide a correlation to the CCR (College and Career Readiness) standards. A lot of books like this cross my sample shelf, but this one stood out as not only useful for a parent but engaging for the child. (See other books in the Now I Know My series in Early Childhood).

    A collection of 180 (one for each day of the typical school year) quick activities to teach, practice, and/or review commonly confused and misused words. Many homophones such as aisle/I'll/isle, boar/boor/bore, and their/there/they're as well as similar sounding word pairs like elicit/illicit and descent/dissent are covered. Additionally, several lessons on proper word choice are provided. Simple exercises will teach your child when to use (among others) fewer as opposed to less, literally instead of figuratively, and among instead of between. Although the provided exercises simply involve selecting the correct word to complete the sentence, each lesson includes an additional writing exercise suggestion. ~ Enh

    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

    From the author of Times Tables the Fun Way, Judy Liautaud, comes this fun and memorable way to learn addition facts 1 through 10. This program is based on the idea of using mnemonics and silly pictures to help visual learners remember their addition facts. This tested method has produced great results that show improvement for children who struggle with more traditional means of learning their facts. Presentation of the number stories is done in a specific way and instructions for such are found at the front of the book. Throughout, you will meet interesting number people like the 5 who drives, the 4-door, the 8-gate, and the 9-sign. A pre/post test is found at the back of the book on a wipe-off finish, so you can realize your student's improvement. Unlike Times Tables the Fun Way, this book isn't an activity book, so you won't find practice problems. What a fun way to learn addition facts! Get to know the number people and their stories, and let them help you down the math path. ~ Donna

    Around here, we like things that are multipurpose. It just makes sense! That's why we love this portable, double-sided. Two to four players can play either CountDown or SpellUp, just by flipping the board over and using the other pair of dice. The board features four rows of double-sided foam "keys" one side depicting numbers 1-10, and the other side featuring the letters B, C, D, F, G, H, L, N, W and Y. To play CountDown, players take turns rolling the dot dice then adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing to get an answer matching a number on their keys. In SpellUp, players roll the letter dice, making words using the letters on the dice and those on the keys. In both cases, players get to push down the letter or number keys that they can use in their equation or word, trying to push all 10 of them down before their opponent(s). The instructions are simple, there are very few loose parts, and players of all ages can participate - all other good qualities we can also appreciate! - Jess

    A very neat twist on your typical grid-and-letter-tiles word games, this game features a gridded gameboard and letter tiles in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some take up only one square, others take a 3 x 3 section, others are tall and narrow, some are wide and short, etc. To begin the game, several letter tiles are placed around the board. Then on each subsequent turn players must match tiles to letters already on the board to form words. The words won't be neatly in rows or columns, but each subsequent letter in the word must be touching the previous letter in some manner (above, below, next to, or diagonally). Once you place a letter, you must write down all the words you formed – other players will be looking for anything you miss so once you are finished they can "steal" words for their lists. You are somewhat limited by the shape of each tile which adds to the challenge, and it can be surprisingly hard to find all the possible words you can create each turn. 2-6 players. ~ Megan

    For children who can recognize and write short rhyming words and phrases. Familiar words are grouped by similar vowel and consonant combinations (like blue, plane, and flag). By saying and tracing these words, children can learn vocabulary and understand the connection between consonant and vowel pairings and their sounds.
