     This digital thermometer has a stainless-steel probe and can be used for your Science experiments or for cooking in your kitchen. It measures both Celsius (-50° to +300°) and Fahrenheit (-58° to +572°), operates on a 1.5V battery (included), and comes with its own protective sheath. The thermometer will automatically turn off after 10 minutes of inactivity, remembers your last measurement, and switches between Celsius and Fahrenheit. Easy to operate – the instructions are on the back of the packaging card. ~ Donna

    One of the best things I get to do around here, is play with all of the microscopes and science gadgets that come in. The eFlex LED Lighted Digital microscope is no exception, and is the quality I would expect from Carson Optical.

    This easy-to-use digital microscope hooks right up to the USB port (2.0 or 3.0) on your computer; and works with Windows XP SP2+, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Mac OS X 10.4.9 – 10.11. However, this product will not work with tablets of any kind. The user guide isn't included in the kit, but an included instruction sheet explains access to the user guide on Carson Optical's website or you may have it sent to you.

    The 3 ½" long microscope can be held in your hand for viewing, or pop it into the holder that is mounted at the end of a flexible neck. A heavy duty suction cup with a clip to ensure stability allows you to attach the flexible neck and scope to the mat or to any smooth surface. I was pleasantly surprised at how firm the suction holds. The magnification can be adjusted from 75X to 300X. With the scope mounted, I could simply adjust the focus with just one hand – so easy to do. You can also adjust the brightness (lighting) on the scope. You can click photos with just a touch on the top of the scope and capture videos of live specimens. The view is clear and crisp enough to reveal a microscopic world. A 5 ½ x 8 ¼ inch mat is included, which has centimeters marked down one edge, inches on the other edge and a grid in the viewing area. This feature allows you to have a record of specimen size when photographing.

    If you're looking for a quality starter scope, this scope is great! You can use it with the whole family or with a group, since you can see the picture on the computer screen – so no squinting through the eyehole for a better view. ~ Donna

    A wonderful and inexpensive tool to use in testing for improved speed in many different skill areas. We use ours for timing our youngest child with phonics flashcards. We set goals and charted his progress. We also set small rewards for him at specific milestones. It took the monotony out of repetition and made it a fun game for him. His speed has improved dramatically. This is also a useful tool to use during math drills. The sleek design of this black and silver stopwatch allows it to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. It records time to the 1/100th of a second and is equipped with a Split/Lap time, date display, regular clock, alarm, and a 30" attached nylon string. Carl

    I love it when things are simple and just work. This white plastic scale has 2 buttons: on/off and tare (the adjustment for the weight of the bowl.) A switch on the bottom of the scale allows you to choose grams or ounces. Digital weight display (LCD) is easy to read and even has an auto shut-off to save power. Runs on 4 included AAbatteries. The wide, clear plastic bowl has a pour spout and holds 5 cups. Maximum capacity is 4.4lb/2.0kg and accuracy is 1.0g/0.1oz. Scale platform is a 6" circle and the bowl measures about 7" diameter at the opening and is about 2" deep. Useful in the kitchen or in your lessons! Simple and sleek, this scale is a winner in my book! ~Sara

      Written for homeschoolers by Rebecca Celsor, The Write Foundation Level 1 Sentence to Paragraph curriculum is not flashy but is certainly deep and incorporates biblical content. Lessons give step-by-step teaching instruction which help you teach your student how to be an independent writer. Emphasis is placed on the writing process, writing structure, and word usage (basic grammar and figures of speech). This level quickly advances from writing descriptive sentences to writing creative and informative paragraphs by teaching how to use the fundamentals of brainstorming, outlining, drafting and editing. Originally these lessons were designed for those who struggle with or dislike writing but this program works well for all students.  This curriculum can easily be used with 1-2 students or in a co-op setting.

      The basic daily lesson format is organized into 3 main areas: sentence structure (practicing grammar, developing sentences, vocabulary and figures of speech); paragraph and essay writing; and poetry instruction (to build vocabulary, grammar, and figures of speech within writing instruction context). The course provides 30 lessons guiding the student from sentence writing to 2-paragraph writings. Two schedules (5-day or 10-day per lesson options, from 30 min to 1.5 hours daily) complete the course in either one or two years.

      The teacher and students are equally engaged in the step-by-step process. All information needed to present each lesson is provided in the spiral teacher instruction manuals which include teaching instructions and Teacher Presentations (TP) which are examples and suggestions to help present the lessons. During the lesson, students discuss ideas with the teacher as the teacher models and highlights items using the Teacher Presentation (TP) information and student input while students copy and highlight on worksheets. Students practice grammar skills through sentence and poetry writing practice and through parts of speech games. The course includes poetry writing as a method of mastering language skills. Literature reading is also strongly recommended. Students choose from a provided list of books with pre-assigned points from 4 to 24 (based on challenge level); students read a minimum of 48 points worth per semester. This system provides variety and encourages students to read frequently. A final recommended component is Mind Benders Book 3 (#003026) to be used to train students to think logically.

      The driving force of the course is contained in the two spiral-bound Teacher Instruction manuals. Teaching instructions and Teacher Presentation (TP) information of examples and suggestions needed to present the lessons, is provided in the spiral-bound Teacher Instruction manuals. The instructions and Teacher Presentation information (TP) in the lessons guide you step-by-step in the daily lessons and show examples and suggestions for the materials discussed. The teaching format is more of a traditional teacher-guiding-the-students format. You, the teacher, will guide the discussion about different writing skills: sentence writing, paragraph writing, and poetry writing. As the students brainstorm or suggest possible answers, you explain the lesson material visually by writing possible answers on a white board or paper while students copy onto the student worksheets. The program allows flexibility. Also, optional technology is provided in the Digital Additional Resources to present each lesson on the computer. The online TP files are interactive, allowing the teacher to type information directly onto the daily lesson's Teacher Presentation (TP) on the computer as the teacher and student discuss and the student copies onto the student worksheets (WS). This original “tech design” requires a computer with Adobe Reader. Internet and Adobe Reader are required to access the digital daily Teacher Presentation (TP) pages. Not techie? Don’t be dismayed! This element is not required or even necessary to teach the course in either a co-op or a typical home setting: good ol’ paper or white board will suffice. With purchase of this product, you'll receive access to the digital and interactive resources through the publisher, The Write Foundation. If you desire the digital full-page Teacher Presentation (TP) lesson materials for teaching using the computer, this material must be downloaded from the publisher. Information is included in the Printed Additional Resources on how to get the Digital Additional Resources. The instructions also give you good direction in grading. Grading rubrics are provided for all student assignments.  A thorough explanation of grading, rubrics for each of the 29 lessons, rubrics for poetry, and how to compile a final grade is provided. The course grade will consist of three portions: composition, poetry, and literature. However, the publisher states that other books could be substituted.

      With this writing curriculum you'll receive one (1) set of student worksheets, two spiral bound Teacher Instructions (Lessons 1-15 and Lessons 16-30), and some Printed Additional Resources. Consumable Student Worksheets (about 230 pages) for one student come printed on 3-hole punched paper to be stored in a 3-ring binder (not provided). More student worksheets may be purchased on TheWriteFoundation.org for multiple students. Directions to more educational games and grading rubrics are included in the Printed Additional Resources. Students will also need a thesaurus, dictionary and highlighters in 6 different colors (pink, blue, yellow, green, orange, and purple). A list of student materials is provided in the Printed Additional Resources. ~ Ruth
