Drawing26-MemoryTriggers

June 9th, 2011 / 172 Comments » / by Terri

MemoryTriggersTired of getting that blank look when your children  read the instructions to a math problem, especially when you are certain they know how to do the work? Often, the problem isn’t the math itself that confuses the child, but rather, understanding  the terminology.

This booklet covers 16 commonly used and easily forgotten math terms. Memory Triggers utilizes  the same FUN mnemonic approach used so successfully with Times Tales.  Simple pictures and stories combine to trigger your child’s memory to remember the meaning of the term and what to do to solve the problem. This is a great tool for any elementary age student struggling with remembering commonly used math terms. Put an end to questions like, “What does denominator mean, again?”

Hero-Tales-CD-11-300x300Learn History on the Drive Home from “The Most Interesting American”

Teddy Roosevelt won the Medal of Honor and the Nobel Peace Prize. He wrote
military textbooks and guides for birdwatchers. He was a sickly child who
became a rancher, governor, Amazon explorer, the youngest president ever. A
friend of cowboys and emperors. A diplomat and a warrior.

No wonder he was called,

“The Most Interesting American!”

And he not only made history,
he wrote about it to teach children virtue and patriotism, too.

Americans real character through the lives of great men and surprising facts
about America’s first centuries. Parts 1 and 2 cover the nation’s founding, the
War for Independence, the French Revolution, and the War of 1812.

Now you and your children can enjoy this classic in audiobook format complete
with cannon fire, slapping waves, and angry French mobs!

TeachTriviumTrivium Pursuit is giving away 4 copies Teaching the Trivium: Christian Homeschooling in a Classical Style by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn

How can you give your children the tools they need to teach themselves? Long ago students were first taught how to learn. Today, students are taught an encyclopedia of subjects – trivia – but they are not taught the basic skills of learning: to discover, to reason, and to apply. They are not taught the Trivium.

Can you homeschool in a classical style without compromising your Christian principles? Because we are Christians, we do not want to pursue non-Christian goals. Classical Education must be sifted through the critical screen of the Scriptures to be transformed into a Biblical model.

Can you homeschool in a classical style without buckling under the burden? There is only so much time in the day. For every subject, and for every age, we have a workable plan – which leaves you free to breathe. You can continue to use other approaches to homeschooling within the framework of Classical Education.

Is homeschooling about renewing family vision? The family is at the heart of God’s plan for restoring Christian culture. Homeschooling is not alternative education. Homeschooling was here first. We want to restore Biblical order to education.

Drawing19-GrowingWithGrammar

Growing With Grammar
This grammar course includes 8 separate grades (levels) that excel in teaching
grammar rules and grammar usage.  Here’s how we do it.

1.  Each grammar book teaches the basics of grammar in a way that is age-
appropriate for the level.

2.  Each grammar book also teaches advanced grammar concepts that are age-
appropriate for the level.

3.  Each grammar book briefly reviews the advanced concepts taught in prior levels.

4.  Sentence diagramming is taught beginning in Level 3.  We believe sentence diagramming is a great tool which assists the student in actually understanding the parts of speech and how they relate to each other.

5.  Each Student Workbook contains lessons that reinforce concepts in teaching grammar that are appropriate for the level.

6.  Each level also contains plenty of review to reinforce the concepts taught in
that level.

7.  In our grammar course, the answer keys for all levels are separate from the
Student Workbook.  This makes our program ideal for any setting where the
teacher is promoting independent study.  In fact, one of the best compliments we
have received from the users of Growing With Grammar is that this program is so
easy to understand that many students routinely complete their assignments with
little intervention from their teacher.

8.  All books in this grammar course are spiral bound, which enables them to lie
completely flat while opened.

By the time the student has completed level 8 of the series, he has had comprehensive exposure to the basics of grammar.  He has also been exposed to
numerous advanced grammar concepts throughout the series.  After completing
the series, the student should have obtained a firm grasp on English grammar.

Soaring with Spelling and Vocabulary
This spelling program includes 8 separate grades (levels) that excel in teaching
spelling and vocabulary.  Here’s how we do it.

1.  The spelling and vocabulary worksheets in Level 1 start with a gentler
approach by introducing the student to simple one and two-syllable list words for
each lesson.  The list words for the Level 1 spelling worksheets demonstrate simple
long and short vowel sounds, as well as an introduction to vowel and consonant
blends.  The complexity of the list words and the concepts they cover become
more difficult as the Levels progress.

2.  The spelling worksheets in each lesson also include the definition for each
list word.  These vocabulary definitions are used in the exercises in the spelling
and vocabulary worksheets for that week.

3.  Our spelling books contain fun games that are age appropriate.

4.  Each spelling book lesson in each level contains a bit of writing such as
writing the list words, copying a sentence, or writing the definition for a list word.

5.  There is a review lesson after every five lessons in each level, which acts as a
review for the previous five lessons.

6.  The answer keys for our spelling program are separate from the spelling
worksheets.  This makes our program ideal for teaching spelling where the
teacher is promoting independent study.

7.  All books in this spelling and vocabulary program are spiral bound,
which enables them to lie completely flat while opened.

Winning With Writing
This writing course includes 8 separate grades (levels) that excel in teaching
writing techniques.  Here’s how we do it.

1.  Each writing book teaches the basics of writing in a way that is age-appropriate
for the level.

2.  This program covers numerous types of writings, such as essays and research
papers.

3.  This program teaches a student how to organize and outline his thoughts for a
writing project.

4.  Enough space is provided within each book for the student to complete the
writing assignments.

5.  The answer keys for all levels are separate from the workbook.  This makes
our program ideal for any setting where the teacher is promoting independent
study.

6.  All books in this writing course are spiral bound, which enables them to lie
completely flat while opened.

By the time the student has completed level 8 of the series, he has had
comprehensive exposure to many different types of writing and should be a well-
organized writer with the confidence to tackle any writing project.
