    The meanings of words change over time. Take the word "marriage," for example. Who knows how a modern secular dictionary will define it tomorrow? Fortunately, we have a standard available that will not change, because the definitions are based on the word's Biblical usage and basis in one of 26 original languages. This reprint of Noah Webster's classic is nearly a textbook in itself, as it gives examples of word usage from classical literature and the Bible. What better way to understand the writings of America's founding fathers than to define their words as they would have understood them.

    That proverbial talk about the “birds and the bees.” You know you need to do it. Teaching your children about God’s plan for sex and all the male/female interaction that leads up to it is part of what it means to bring up a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And you want to do it – sort of. It’s just that it’s so very uncomfortable – and you don’t know what to say – and there might be questions asked that make you ashamed or guilty. . .  Dennis and Barbara Rainey (parents of six) of Family Life Ministries know you need “a plan” and they’ve provided a lovely one – a getaway weekend kit complete with instructions for you, guidelines for what to do, excellent speakers to get the difficult words out in the open by offering interesting audio sessions, an engaging format, a solid study of Biblical values, and enjoyable scripture songs.

      The goal of this program is to encourage and empower parents to discuss the difficult topics of intimacy, sexual behavior, and personal feelings that are facing their children as they enter the preteen years. To give parents the tools they need to both challenge their sons and daughters as they enter the pathway to Christian adulthood as well as provide the foundation for future discussions and sharing. To build a mentoring relationship with your children that continues past the weekend and into all the years leading up to adulthood.

      Preteen? Isn’t that jumping the gun a bit for the birds and the bees? Not in today’s culture. It’s literally everywhere around us – and now in ways unimagined by all previous generations. This program is designed to set the stage for a close parent/child relationship as the child moves into this period. Topics are handled biblically, carefully, and tastefully. Some topics are left optional for the parent.

      A weekend getaway. That’s the general setting. One child – with the parent all to himself (boys with fathers; girls with mothers) – doing an activity of his choice that he loves to do and spending time listening to “talks” and working through study material together. It’s a wonderful affirmation that the love of the parent can transcend the upcoming changes that the child will be experiencing.

      There are five audio sessions and one optional session: 1) the adolescent experience, 2) how to handle peer pressure, 3) changes that are ahead (God’s design for sex), 4) purity (protecting sexual innocence), and 5) dating (properly engaging with the opposite sex). The optional session covers really delicate issues (masturbation, pornography, and same-sex attraction) and can be inserted after the fourth session and before the fifth if the parent chooses,

      The Getaway Kit provides the necessary framework: a tour guide for the parent, travel journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions, CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and downloadable MP3s of all sessions.

      The Tour Guide is for the parent – basically a leader’s guide for this very focused Bible study. This little manual includes sections on planning the getaway, an itinerary for the weekend, a suggested schedule, preparation checklists (and needed supplies), guidelines for writing a note to your son/daughter, and very specific suggestions for praying for your son/daughter. Also included is a page-for-page reproduction of the Travel Journal (accent color rather than full color) so you can work through it with your son/daughter.

      The Travel Journal is for your son/daughter and is designed as a companion for the experiences of the weekend. With a travel theme and an engaging appearance, it provides a place to write notes (from the talks), thoughts, and answers to questions as well as the guidelines for godly Christian living provided by this study material. There are 25 follow-up devotions that continue with a similar theme and help strengthen the biblical core of the young adult’s understanding of the various issues. This is a nicely done keepsake book with a hardcover, full-color graphics, and an elastic strap for place-keeping.

      The CD Set provides the core material for the heart of the weekend and the program. Eight CDs provide the weekend talk sessions. These sessions feature scripture memory songs, dramatic vignettes, humorous features, real-life stories from teens and adults, and lots of teaching from parents and experts that have “been there, done that.” Songs are CCM-type of music with understandable lyrics, singable melodies, and full instrumentation backup.

      Having “that” talk with your children may never be entirely comfortable, but this kit gives you a plan; the certainty of godly, biblical content; and the promise of enjoyable memories.

    So, you're writing stories in English class, and your reluctant writer is whiny and reticent. "Why do we have to write stories? I can't think of anything!" If you can't get them out of their writing slump by suggesting "Well, let's brainstorm," or "Look around you for ideas," just say (with a twinkle in your eye) - "Forget it, let's just play a game instead." Of course, five or ten minutes later they'll realize they're not getting off the story-writing hook, but they'll probably be enjoying themselves so much they'll forget to pout. The game format is similar to most board games your family plays, with a large board featuring a wandering path from beginning to end. Besides a die, scoring pad and markers, the game features eight decks of story element cards and a story outline pad. Basically, as players move along the board, they will collect specific story element cards, and weave them into a story. Card decks are clearly labeled and include topic sentence, plot, character, setting, description, dialogue, lesson, and resolution cards. At the beginning of the game, each player receives a topic sentence. This is the only topic sentence card they will receive, and should be used towards the beginning of the story. As they roll the die, they will land on spaces labeled with the names of corresponding story element cards, and will draw the top card from the stack. By the end of the game, they should have at least one of each element card, and at least five description cards. Then, the writing begins! Choosing from their collected cards, the writer decides which cards he wants to incorporate into his or her story, and writes them onto the outline sheet. The outline begins with the topic sentence, and features blanks to fill in for each part of the story. Under "Setting", they must determine the "where", "when" and descriptors. Under character, they must identify the good guys and the bad guys, and describe both. For the plot, they must identify the problem, and decide on the order of events. Under "Resolution" and "Lesson", they will decide how the "Resolution" and "Lesson" cards they chose relate to their story, and how it all wraps up. Now, players each have a good framework for a story; the trick is now fleshing it out into an actual short story, which may be easier at this point, since a lot of the "unknowns" have been identified. A scoring sheet will help Mom decide if the story included all the necessary components, and will inspire kids not to skimp on the "less exciting" stuff. Since inventing characters, conflicts and settings sometimes takes a lot of steam out of even the more enthused young writers, I would imagine that taking that pressure off of them in this way would free up their imaginations to write a much more well-rounded, exciting story. I'll bet that even Mom and Dad will want to play this one! - Jess

    Two opposing teams of spies enter this code-cracking arena… Only one emerges victorious! In this veritable verbal volley, each team sits opposite their 4 privy “code words.” These 4 words match to numbers 1-4. To begin a round, each Encrypter (one per team) draws a card with a 3-character sequence, such as “4-1-2.” Suppose White Team has these words in order 1-4: “Bottle,” “Camera,” “Egg,” and “Tape.” The White Encrypter may think of and announces the following clues: “Sticky,” “Glass,” and “Picture.” Other players on the team then guess the intended sequence. If the revealed sequence matches the team’s guess, no penalty is given – but if the guess is wrong, the team gets a miscommunication token! Two tokens and a team loses.

    Meanwhile, Black Team makes a note of the clues and sequence; in this way, both teams keep a running tally of their own and their opponent’s clues. In future rounds, this becomes important as each team gets the first chance to “intercept” the other team’s sequence! Successfully intercepting two messages earns that team a win. Compared to Codenames, this provides an interesting twist on word-guessing: Encrypters must make their clues obvious enough for their own team to guess, but vague enough to prevent the opposing team from intercepting the sequence! Encrypters can also use phrases or other “passcodes” (within the realm of reason) to further obscure intent. Overall, a fantastic party game for any synonym sleuth! For 3-8 players; 15-45-minute playtime.

    Now there's no reason to wait until your student is in 3rd grade. Bible Heroes is an excellent language arts bridge from IEW's Primary Arts of Language to their theme-based writing lessons. Or you might decide to use it as a new entry point for the IEW program (as you finish your favorite phonics/reading program). Either way, I think you will be very pleased with what this program supplies – lessons that not only provide instruction in writing with structure and style (as the name implies), but also introductory grammar and Bible. The 27 lessons cover IEW Unit 1 (two lessons teaching Key Word Outlines), Unit 2 (seven lessons on Writing from KWOs), Unit 3 (twelve lessons on Summarizing Narrative Stories), Unit 4 (three lessons on Summarizing References), Unit 5 (three lessons on Writing From Pictures), and Unit 7 (one lesson on Creative Writing) The approach is solidly multi-sensory. Lessons include verbal and written activities as well as games for reinforcement and all source material is taken from the Bible. Although the target audience for this course is 1st-2nd grade, material can be adapted for up to 5th grade.

    The consumable Student Book provides instructions which are to be read to the student, additional gray boxes that have notes to the teacher, and space for students to complete lessons and writing assignments. Appendices include: styles helps, game pieces (cardstock), and vocabulary cards (also cardstock).

    Purchasers of this course have access to two free downloads from the IEW website. One of the downloads is the Student Resource Notebook (also available for purchase in hard copy format). It provides supplementary and reference material needed by the student. The other download is the Bible Heroes Teacher's E-book; this Teacher's Manual is a vital part of the course and its use is expected. It provides more detailed instructions for each lesson, a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussion of each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming pages, instruction for games and activities, copies of checklists, and copies of game boards. ~ Janice

    A fun imaginary character based way to learning cursive

    Mrs. Letz Farmer and her daughter Laura have teamed up again to help children learn cursive - and maintain a cheerful attitude while doing it. Somewhat similar to their first book in format, this book adopts the same encouraging instruction. It begins with lowercase letters for ease, introducing different strokes that can be used to make different letters. Several appropriately named characters represent these strokes and appear on related pages to offer tips.

    Writing bible verses for cursive practice and character development

    Bible verses appear on some pages, used for practice in reading cursive and identifying letters. Random words lining the bottom of the page are used for writing practice. The book then moves into lowercase letter combinations and finally words. When students are comfortable with their lowercase letters, it's time to move on to the capitals. As the letters are introduced, students begin practicing by writing printed Bible verses in cursive, and then a cursive verse back into manuscript. Here again on these pages, there are random words included for additional writing practice for the featured letter. Any difficult letter combination connections are featured with practice lines so students become comfortable with them.

    Reinforcement of writing and grammar skills for homeschoolers

    Grammar skills and alphabetizing are also incorporated into the lessons, which is a nice extra touch. - Melissa
