    This handwriting workbook is good for younger students just learning cursive, or for an older child who has never learned. Learn grip and paper placement, then get busy training your hand to make the swooping and looping shapes. Author Diana Hanbury King goes about this very simply at first, then groups lower case letters by commonalities. There is plenty of practice space, but no dotted-half-line like other handwriting courses. There is a slight slant to the right for right handed students. The letters are traditional and not overly fussy. The capital Q looks like a 2. There is tracing and copying, and even writing with your eyes closed! Numbers are included. First you’ll write words, then 3 words, then capital letters, capitalized words and eventually, short sentences. In the back, practice writing names, days of the week, months, dates, abbreviations, greetings and closings for friendly and business letters, holidays, book titles, and finally, some vocabulary words related to the 4 core subject areas. A page or 2 a day for practice will help develop your child’s cursive. The book has a stapled binding and lies nice and flat. 89 pgs, pb, non-reproducible. ~ Sara

    Note taking is a valuable skill that will help students retain information, organize research, and improve their test-taking abilities. This book provides exercises that will help children start developing this skill at an early age. Sections of the book guide children through an array of note-taking strategies to use when reading from textbooks or novels, researching and using online sources, and taking notes in class or from another spoken source. Each worksheet holds a short, interesting passage followed by a note-taking activity covering a specific tactic such as recognizing the main idea and details, chronological order, summarizing, tables, Venn diagrams and other graphic organizers, scanning, character, note cards, bibliography, and other helpful methods. Suggestions are also given for teachers which will allow students the opportunity to practice taking notes in class, such as reading an article aloud to students or watching an educational video. If students don't recognize the benefits of this skill now, they definitely will when they are in college! ~ Steph

     Just don’t feel “certain” that your preschooler is getting the best preparation? This everything-in-the-box program from a secular publisher will put those fears to rest. Designed for busy parents who want a solid one-on-one educational experience for their child, the Preschool Kit provides an organized learning plan (listening skills, memory-building, reasoning, conversation and social skills, hand-to-eye coordination with pencils and scissors, letter and number skills) plus everything you need to complete that plan including music, poems, art supplies, manipulatives, worksheets, snack suggestions, and scripted lessons. Just an hour a day, twelve exercises, with “the box” allow you to cover the 15 lessons at three different skill levels over the course of an academic year. Levels include concrete, shape-based exploration (1st), difference between shapes and letters (2nd), and how to write letters, numbers, and discernment of colors, patterns, and size (3rd). ~ Janice

    This colorful workbook offers many pages of pre-writing practice disguised as fun follow-the-path and tracing activities. The first twenty pages are brightly colored pictures with paths for kids to trace as they help the frog jump across the lily pads, the plane land on the runway, and other similar concepts. The paths get increasingly difficult, calling for more and more control and concentration. The next several pages move on to tracing shapes (appearing on inviting coloring pages) and then specific strokes. Two full pages of bright stickers provide further fun and motivation for young students. 32 pgs, perforated for easy removal. – Melissa

    Your kids may be involved in sports, music lessons, debate, and various other clubs, not to mention all of their schooling, but are they learning the most important skills? That is, have they mastered life skills - the ones they will need for their future when they leave your home and become independent adults? By Christine M. Field, this practical guide helps you incorporate life skill training into everyday life so you don't have to make room for yet another activity. Feeling as though she was not "life trained" when she was a child and wanting to prepare her own children for their futures, she decided to write this book to help all parents with this important task. There are fourteen chapters, each focusing on a different skill. Topics covered included responsibility, people skills, in the home skills, life navigation, time organization, space organization, maintaining and fixing things around the house, managing money, healthy grooming habits, using your brain, forming good spiritual habits, making decisions, creativity, and finding joy in everyday life. The personable, down-to-earth tone of the book makes it an enjoyable read for parents who want some useful ideas and knowledgeable help. The chapters are filled with valuable information, a variety of suggestions, relevant charts (both offering information such as the chart which portrays age appropriate chores and ones providing you with models you may want to utilize in your home like clothing records to keep track of everyone's wardrobes), and lots of encouragement. Each chapter concludes with a "Life Skills Checklist" with several points for you to read through so you can determine if you've successfully met the goals of the chapter. This is a wonderful resource encompassing the truly important life skills. 332 pages. - Melissa
