BACK TO SCHOOL WITH CHRISTIANBOOK.COM

BACK TO SCHOOL
WITH CHRISTIANBOOK

This year my youngest child begins the sixth grade at homeschool. Here are some suggestions for new or veteran homeschoolers. I like to mix it up but I am a fan of Easy Grammar by Isha Enterprises, Inc. and Saxon Math by Saxon Publishing.


Easy Grammar Grade 6
By Isha Enterprises, Inc.

Students learn grammar faster and easier when they're actually writing and editing texts; this hands-on approach to grammar is just one of the reasons why Easy Grammar is so successful. Utilizing the prepositional approach, students memorize prepositions to then eliminate from sentences, making finding the noun and verb much easier. Concepts are reviewed and introduced throughout the school year; this, accompanied with reviews helps to ensure engaged, mastery learning for all elementary aged children.
Workbook pages with answers overlaid face reproducible workbook pages for students to complete. "To the teacher" notes address areas of importance and teaching tips. A writing section is also included. Workbook to teacher's text correlations are noted in the back. Tests included. 712 pages, indexed; softcover. Pages are reproducible. Grade 6.

Easy Grammar Grade 6 Workbook
By Isha Enterprises, Inc.

Great for saving time, homeschool co-ops or regular classrooms, Easy Grammar Student Workbooks contain the student workbook pages found within the Easy Grammar Grade 6 2007 Text. Pages are perforated for easy removal. 317 pages, indexed, softcover. Workbooks are not reproducible.


Saxon Math 76 Home Study Kit Fourth Edition
By Saxon Publishing


Saxon Math Homeschool 7/6 teaches math with a spiral approach, which emphasizes incremental development of new material and continuous review of previously taught concepts.
Building upon the principles taught in Saxon Math 6/7, the Saxon 76 textbook introduces functions and coordinate graphing, integers, exponential expressions, and prime factorization. Students will specifically learn about the order of operations, number lines, decimal place value, how to find the percent of a number, how to round decimal numbers, attributes of geometric solids, and more.
Lessons contain a warm-up (with facts practice, mental math, & problem-solving exercises); introduction to the new concept, lesson practice exercises where the new skill is practiced, and mixed practice exercises, which includes 25-30 old and new problems. In-depth "Investigations" are provided every 10 lessons, and have their own set of questions.
The Tests and Worksheetsbook provides supplemental "facts practice" tests for each lesson, as well as 23 cumulative tests that cover every 5-10 lessons. The included "activity sheets" are designed to be used with the activities given in the student worktext. Five optional, reproducible, recording forms are also included.
The Solutions Manual provides answers for all problems in the lesson (including warm-up, lesson practice, and mixed practice exercises), as well as solutions for the supplemental practice found in the back of the student text. It also includes answers for the facts practice tests, activity sheets, and tests in the separate tests & worksheets book.
Saxon Math 7/6 is designed for students in grade 6, or for 7th grade students who are struggling with math.
This Saxon Homeschool Kit includes:

  • Student Text; 120 lessons, 12 investigations, 744 perforated pages, softcover, 4th Edition.

  • Tests and worksheets book; 241 perforated pages, three-ring-punched. 4th Edition.
  • Solutions Manual; 331 perforated pages, softcover. 4th Edition.



  • Please Note: This product is only available for purchase by homeschools, consumers, and public institutions.



    Choosing Good Health, Third Edition
    By A Beka Book

    Learning to take care of your body is an important life skill.
    Sixth grade Health students will learn about important information through three units: Safety and First Aid, Growth & Fitness, and A Healthy Mind & Body. Lessons cover the endocrine, immune, and nervous systems while looking at major health concerns such as drug abuse, AIDS, and the effects of such issues upon the nation and individuals. The safety chapter addresses personal responsibility for behavior and covers basic first-aid procedures. This course is designed to last 9 weeks, and follows the completion of the Grade 6 science curriculum. Approximately 164 pages.

    Samantha Sanderson - Without A Trace by Robin Caroll is the fourth installment of the Samantha Sanderson series.
    Seventh grader, Samantha Sanderson is a high-tech cheerleader  that works for her school paper. She wants to become the editor and works tirelessly researching articles to submit. She aspires to become a famous award-winning journalist like her mother.  Her father is a police officer. Samantha often gets ideas from real-life police investigations.



    One day after school, Samantha's friend, Tam Lee disappears after many days of being absent from middle-school. The police believe he is a runaway.  Sam disagrees because she knows Tam is smart, mature and very responsible. The police question her whole family at home. Sam tries to share theories concerning his disappearance but the Sheriff's Department brush it off.  Sam and her friend, Makayla, work together to find clues pertaining to Tam Lee's disappearance. Did Tam Lee really runaway? Who was the last person to see Tam? Can the girls find him? Will Sam solve this case and get her next big mystery story?

    My 10-year old daughter, Summer enjoyed tackling her first mystery novel from Faithgirlz.  If you are unfamiliar or behind on the Samantha Sanderson series, please look previous Samantha Sanderson books: Samantha Sanderson At the Movies, Samantha Sanderson On the Scene and Samantha Sanderson Off the Record.

    "Faithgirlz has things that will be interesting to my girls...

The Glimmer Girls along with their father and famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer travel the country finding exciting adventures. Oh, let's not forget their beloved and wacky nanny, Miss Julia Twist. The girls keep her on her toes.


    Wouldn't a day trip to jolly old England be a grand mini-holiday?  Well, The Glimmer Girls get to fly to London, England to attend their mom's concert for the first time.

    A Dolphin Wish by Natalie Grant is the second installment of the Glimmer Girl series. This time the trio go on an adventure to San Diego while their mom goes on tour. The family visits the Captain Swashbuckler's Adventure Park to enjoy fun foods, rides and animals. While there, Mia overhears a couple of animal handlers discussing a serious issue concerning the animals. The mystery begins with trying to solve how the animals are escaping their habitats. This is dangerous for the animals and the girls along with their nanny Miss Twist jump on the challenge.

    Holiday Gift Guide: Let's Celebrate Springtime, Lent & Easter #holidaygiftguide #Zonderkidz #ZblogSquad

      Let's Celebrate Springtime, Lent & Easter




    Zondervan
    March is National Reading Month 

    As a Christian homeschool mom and grandmother, I  become quite excited when it comes to reading and having the opportunity to review children's books especially books that share great spiritual messages. Recently, HarperCollins Christian Publishing graciously presented complimentary books for my family and I which focuses on Lent, Easter and springtime. The Faithgirlz books are not specifically for holiday reading.

    Lent lasts for fifteen days. This year it begins Wednesday, February 10th and ends on Saturday, March 26th. Immediately afterwards, Christians celebrate Easter or Resurrection Sunday on  March 27th, 2016. Last year we celebrated Easter in the month of April.

    Let me share with you some wonderful children's book ideas for gift giving from Zonderkidz.


    The Legend of the Easter Robin by Dandi Daley Mackall

    The Legend of the Easter Robin is written by Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrated by Richard Cowdrey. Inside this beautifully illustrated hardcover book, you will read a heartfelt story of compassion and faith based on the old Pennsylvania Dutch tale about the legend of the robin's red breast.  Tressa and her grandmother keep watch over a robins nest that is placed on Gran's window ledge. Tressa visits each day after-school and has concerns about the safety of the eggs and the birds.  In the meantime, Gran teaches Tressa a Pennsylvania Dutch custom  called oschter-foggel or Easter birds. As they work on dying eggs, Gran shares the story of the Legend of the Robin's Red Breast.


    Oschter-foggel - Making Easter Birds

    What a spectacular book to read time and again with your children or grandchildren! In my honest, opinion this is a wonderful story to include in your family library as a book to read annually at Lent and Easter. It's filled with colorful eye-popping illustrations that kids and adult will love.

    My only concern is that some children may not understand the pictures dealing with the crucifixion story; like the scene with a whip, crown of thorns and blood.  It has been portrayed tastefully but I would recommend that an adult read it aloud or follow along with younger children because they may have questions or be unfamiliar with the crucifixion story.

    The Legend of the Easter Robin is recommended for ages 4 - 8.  Hardcover. SRV. $16.99
