    Jolly Phonics Workbooks put newly acquired skills into practice with letter stroke and print letter practice. These correspond to the Finger Phonics Books. There is a 2-page spread (black and white) for each phoneme that recaps the story, motion, provides additional writing exercise (tracing the target letter) and introduces the upper-case symbol. Each 24-page workbook (seven in all - one for each group of letters) also includes a variety of recap activities at the end. Letter introduction in this series is a bit unusual  and in this order. #1 – s, a, t, i, p, n; #2 – c/k, e, h, r, m, d; #3 – g, o, u, l, f, b; #4 – ai, j, oa, ie, ee, or; #5 – z, w, ng, v, oo (two sounds); #6 – y, x, ch, sh, th (two sounds); and #7 – qu, ou, oi, ue, er, ar.

    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

    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

      Meeting resistance when it comes time for handwriting practice? These themed practice books can save the day. Each workbook has 40 reproducible practice pages with built-in motivation. There is a short review at the beginning on how to form the letters, but this is more for practice than initial instruction. The pages start with 3 target words from the quote/joke/fact for the student practices writing a few times. They then carefully copy the entire selection. At the end of the workbook, they can cut off the bottom of the pages to make into a stapled book of their handwriting practice and end up with a fun book of quotes/jokes/facts.

      Wacky Facts: includes things like world records, interesting trivia, cool animal facts and more. Available in print or cursive, depending on grade level. It can take only 5-10 minutes per day to get in some handwriting practice that your child won’t dread. They may even ask to do more than a page a day! 48 pb; reproducible for home/classroom use. Modern style ~ Lisa/Sara

    For students taking a class or in a co-op with a teacher, this workbook with audio CD would make a good supplement. It would be most helpful to a student who is familiar with basic Chinese characters. If you do not have access to someone familiar enough with the language, this set would be best used as a supplement rather than a curriculum. I had a little trouble finding where I was on the CD because everything is in the target language. I did get the hang of it though with a little practice. For introducing culture, the book suggests adding movies. Students will be introduced to new words, phrases & sentences systematically by building on students' prior knowledge. The content has beginner vocabulary and phrases and covers what most foreign language courses cover in the first year. However, I would not count this as a high school credit; it is a workbook. The author, professor Jasmine Tang has 30 years of teaching experience. Includes 24 lessons, a writing exercise and a glossary. pp, sc. ~ Sara

    This program was designed to help students unlock the English language. Once students log in, they may begin the lessons. It is recommended that they complete the lessons in order, but if you are using this for extra practice, they can choose which lessons they want to work through. Each lesson begins with a short, narrated introduction and explanation of the target concept. For example, in the adjectives lesson, the text and accompanying narration will define adjectives, give tips for recognizing them, and offer examples of adjectives in sentences. Afterwards, students will answer a few multiple choice questions to test their comprehension of the new material. Finally, students will complete an exercise in which they identify adjectives and other parts of speech in sample sentences. All of the exercises utilize complete sentences to help kids see how all of the skills relate to each other in context the way students will see them in books and the way they will use them in their own writing. The first CD-ROM Parts of Speech and Sentence Structure has around 30 lessons. Students in the fourth grade are expected to complete the first 15, students in the fifth grade should complete the first twenty, and students in the sixth grade or above should work through them all. After the first twenty lessons, there are reviews and a test to track progress and understanding. There is also a final test for students to take after all of the lessons have been completed. The second CD-ROM Punctuation and Mechanics - follows the same format as the first, with explanations, comprehension questions, and complete sentences to edit appropriately. It also includes around thirty lessons. 4th and 5th grade students should only start this CD-ROM after completing the allotted lessons from the Parts of Speech CD. 6th grade and above students should complete all lessons of both CDs. As students complete lessons on either CD-ROM, their scores are shown next to the lesson numbers on the lesson page, so they can see which lessons they've finished and you can decide which ones need more practice. The third CD-ROM offers additional reinforcement for the first and second CD-ROM in the form of workbook PDF pages with challenging sentences and essays for the students to label.Programs are for Windows only.

    What is a sentence? Only the most basic component of all writing – and perhaps its most neglected. This course goes a long way toward correcting that situation. The general idea is that just as we acquire good oral language skills by hearing/listening, we can acquire good written language skills by observing and mimicking excellent writers. Using model sentences written by professionals, the student is taught four basic sentence manipulation techniques – sentence unscrambling, sentence imitating, sentence combining, and sentence expanding. Each of these techniques is developed through a series of activities, 33 in all, each of which provide one to three practice exercises. To give you an idea, Unit 1, Sentence Unscrambling, Activity 7 gives the student practice in identifying and removing comma splices. Unit 3, Sentence Imitating, Activity 22 includes two practice exercises that require the student to practice adding words, adding phrases, and adding clauses as they combine, then imitate. If this sounds just a little like grammar, well, you would be correct. These are exercises in applied grammar. After all, composing sentences is the "other side of the coin" from dissecting them (the basic activity of most grammar programs). All in all, even though this is a very skill-targeted course, the value of the skill makes it an excellent choice for the writing component of any particular middle school year's language arts. A reference in the back of the book includes the author's original sentences which serves as an answer key of sorts.136 pgs, pb ~ Janice
