    Jane Kiester (Caught Ya! Grammar with a Giggle) has now produced a book of Caught'ya stories and sentences specifically geared toward middle school students. Just like the original, students follow a humorous story and correct grammar and usage mistakes throughout. Chapters summarize the system, show how to implement and assess it, answer common questions about the Caught'ya, and list vocabulary and character names. Unlike other volumes, this book contains just one continuous story (The Bizarre Mystery of Horribly Hard Middle School) with enough sentences for each grade to last an entire school year. Errors in sentences include "basic skills" like capitalization and punctuation but also cover vocabulary words, literary devices, and writing conventions that middle school students should be perfecting at this grade level. There are 125 Caught'ya sentences each for grades 6, 7, and 8. There are also optional writing ideas for each grade level after every five Caught'ya sentences, suggestions about how to teach the skills most effectively, and midterm and final tests for each grade level. The story, and thus sentences, are geared toward students in a public school setting, but the program is great for the homeschooler too. A CD-ROM with various PDF files offers easy duplication and includes the complete, uninterrupted story in narrative form, the midterm and final exam tests, and all the Caught'ya sentences. It also includes a Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics Guide that lists and explains grammar rules. For teachers and parents who want to improve student writing and editing skills and have some fun while they're doing it, this is the perfect guide. 406 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Another inspiring and engaging novel by Avi, and winner of a handful of children's choice book awards, this is one that is definitely hard to put down. Determined and resourceful Ida Bidson dreams of being a teacher someday, and with 8th grade examinations approaching, and a good year on the farm last year, it just might be possible to convince her parents to let her attend high school in the city. But when an unexpected turn of events forces the teacher of their one-room schoolhouse to return home, the school board decides not to find a replacement until the next year, and expecting the children to repeat the year. Ida is distraught at the idea of repeating 8th grade, and her dreams of being a teacher, already on shaky ground, may bite the dust. Unless… they can find a way to finish the school year themselves. Will Ida's first teaching job be a success or enough to make her reconsider? And can she still complete her own studies while teaching the other students their lessons, AND helping out with the farm work? And how long can they keep a "secret school" a secret in the valley where gossip spreads like wildfire? Definitely a page-turner, as well as an inspiring story where a girl who refuses to let go of her dreams doesn't mind a lot of challenging work to get there. - Jess

    The Middle Ages is a great unit study of this time period that could really get creative kids interested - even if they don't like history! The guide starts with Charlemagne, and ends with the Renaissance. Text is included that gives an overview of the times, covering the feudal system, castles, knighthood, the church, cathedrals, the Crusades, growth of towns, guilds, and the weakening of the feudal system. Since the sections are pretty concise, outside reading would be encouraged, especially for older students. After each section of text comes a variety of activities such as: design a tapestry; learn and label the parts of a suit of armor; decorate your own coat of arms; do some writing. A list of suggested reading is found at the back of the 88-page book, and the book is reproducible for classroom or family use only. With all this in a history study, they won't get bored! - Jessica

Each Stop includes fact filled, engaging readings which are created to be all you need for a compact or supplementary study. Several of the 'stops' also offer more than one project allowing you and your children options along the way. While some of the projects will require students to research further, others have all the necessary information provided.

Masters, detailed instructions, illustrations, and photos of finished products are all included to fully equip the parent for a successful hands-on history experience. An additional resource section offers a variety of books, videos, music ideas, bibliography of nonfiction books and websites, and research projects to accompany the projects if parents/students want to become further immersed into the Middle Ages! Reproducible for immediate family use only. ~Deanne

    This cute book by Andrew Clements is about two friends, Natalie and Zoe, who are in sixth grade. Natalie writes a short novel about things that happen at school, and Zoe is sure it is good enough to be published. Natalie's mom happens to be a publisher, who has told Natalie that she is looking for stories about kids in school. The girls don't want her to know the book was written by Natalie, so they use a pen name. Zoe acts as Natalie's agent, and with the help of a teacher they set up an "office" and correspond with Natalie's mom through voice mail and official-looking papers. Natalie is nervous that her mom won't enjoy the book, but Zoe is sure there is nothing to worry about. This is a fun story about friendship and kids believing in themselves. 196 pgs, pb.
