10001 Home Education and Family


# 1033

Survivors Guide to Home Schooling
Luanne Shackleford and Susan White     
$ 5.5
A wonderful book full of encouraging ideas about how to really tackle the job of educating whilst keeping house. Written by two home teaching moms, this book answers the questions home schoolers are asking:
  • How can I prevent burnout?
  • What do I do with my preschoolers while I teach?
  • What if my child isn't "getting it?"
  • How can my husband help?


  • # 1041

    The FAMILY God's Weapon for Victory
    Robert Andrews     
    $ 10.95
    On the subject which is close to all our hearts deals with many of the issues we all are challenged by as homeschooling families. Beginning by setting out the roles of husbands and wives and then on to children (including a treatment of discipline) this book sets out to equip families to be the very best they can be. There is also thought-provoking discussion of 'family planning' and "courtship"'. I like the comment on the back cover which states "This book is a bit like Narnia's Aslan - it is not safe, but it is good." Be prepared to be challenged and changed by this book.


    # 1010

    Gaining Confidence to Teach
    Debbie Strayer     
    $ 8.4
    Forty-Two Confidence-Builders to Encourage Christian Homeschoolers. Debbie Strayer (Executive Editor of Homeschooling Today magazine) speaks from the heart concerning such topics as the call to home school, relatives, support groups, tesst results, curriculum, relationships at home, facing changes and enduring trials.


    # 1014

    Teaching Primaries
    Ruth Beechick     
    $ 4.95
    This book is about 6/8-year-olds what it means to learn concretely instead of abstractly, the best system of memorising and what they can understand about God.


    # 1020

    Home Grown Kids
    Raymond and Dorothy Moore     
    $ 5.95
    HOME GROWN KIDS (or children!) The Moores believe that many education problems as well as potentially severe damage to family moral and spiritual values can arise from too much formal school too soon. In Home-Grown kids they present well-documented evidence for these conclusions, and they urge parents to consider the option of home teaching, especially in the early years.


    # 1021

    Better Late Than Early: A New Approach to Your Child's Education
    Raymond and Dorothy Moore.     
    $ 5.95
    Read, sing and play with your children from birth. Read to them several times a day, and they will learn to read in their own time as early as 3 or 4, but usually later, some as late as 14. Late readers are no more likely to be retarded or disabled than early ones. They often become the best readers of all with undamaged vision and acute hearing, more adult-like reasoning levels, mature brain structure less blocking of creative interests. Yet late readers are often falsely thought to be in need of remedial help. If you have any doubts about your youngsters, have a specialists check vision and hearing possibly see a neurologist if there are no problems, relax!


    # 1023

    The Busy Mum's Guide to Simple Living
    Raymond S. Moore, Dennis R. Moore, Dorothy N. Moore.     
    $ 5.5
    An excellent source of inspiration for home-educating Mums addressing the areas of healthful living, saving money, organising for smooth household management etc.


    # 1024

    Spiritual Mothering: The Titus 2 Model for Women Mentoring Women
    Susan Hunt     
    $ 5.5
    Giving encouragement and practical guidance for modern women to implement the principles of Titus 2 in today's church. I found this a very exciting book, if more women took this seriously, we could revolutionise the church and begin to meet needs which currently are being overlooked. This can only lead to a stronger church for us and our children to grow up in.


    # 1028

    All the Way Home
    Mary Pride     
    $ 6.95
    This is the sequel to The Way Home. Building on the theme of the home as the centre of life, you can discover something of what is possible for families today. Chapters such as `marriage for mortals`, `Is there life after TV` with suggestions on starting and running a home business, and how the family can reach out to and influence and minister to the community. A very provocative book but even if you don't agree with everything Mary Pride says, it will get you searching the Scriptures.


    # 1002

    Home Educating With Confidence: How Ordinary Parents Can Produce
    Rick & Marilyn Boyer     
    $ 6.5
    Written from a Christian prospective, the Boyers show us how ordinary parents can produce extraordinary children. They belive that learning is a natural function and can happen better at home than anywhere else. The Boyers write with love and an incredible respect for their children. Drawing on 17 years of home education experience they show us how to start right and stay right.


    # 1006

    For the Children's Sake
    Susan Scheaffer McCaulay     
    $ 5.5
    What is education? An excellent book, showing how education should begin with a true understanding of each child as a unique individual made in the image of God. It is very important for all parents to become vitally involved in their child's education, even if they are not home-schooling. There are various ways in which parents can be actively helping in the area of education and this book presents many of them.


    # 1009

    # 891074651

    All the Way Home: Power for Your Family to Be Its Best
    Mary Pride     
    $ 13.99
    This is the sequel to The Way Home. Building on the theme of the home as the centre of life, you can discover something of what is possible for families today. Chapters such as `marriage for mortals`, `Is there life after TV` with suggestions on starting and running a home business, and how the family can reach out to and influence and minister to the community.

    10002 Bible and Character Training


    # 1040

    To Train up a Child
    Michael Pearl, Debi Pearl     
    $ 2.5
    Parents who put off training until their children are old enough to discuss issues and receive explanations find their children are little terrors long before they understand the meaning of the word



    # 1039

    What The Bible Says About Child Training
    J Richard Fugate     
    $ 4.95
    This excellent book stands in contrast to humanistic child rearing methods. It is thoroughly Bible based. Written to instruct, aid, and encourage, it is a MUST for every parent and prospective parent.


    # 1032

    Training Children in Godliness
    Michael McHugh     
    $ 4.5
    A tremendously encouraging little book written by a Puritan on the theme of Proverbs 22:6, full of practical suggestions and insights.


    # 1003

    Shepherding a Child's Heart
    Theodore A. Tripp     
    $ 12
    Tedd Tripp writes a lucid, thoughtful and encouraging piece. This book is well reasoned, well supported and well organized. Frankly, I could not put it down, which is saying a lot for me, a busy executive with an Internet Start-up. As a fairly new Christian, I found that the book really informed my method and mode of disicplining my two sons. I realized that I wasn't going it alone. Its not me against my son. My job is to act as God's agent and help my sons develop a godward orientation and understanding of the power of Jesus Christ's atoning death on the cross. If you're a Christian or a seeker or just interested in how to have a fulfilling relationship with your children, this book is an outstanding and truly enjoyable read - Review by : mike@one21.net

    $ 0
    Editorial Review:

We realized that we needed goals to aim for and a plan to help us reach those goals. Plants Grown Up is the result.

    # 891075860

    Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: A Response to Evangel
    John Piper     
    $ 25
    This weighty volume is subtitled 'A Response to Evangelical Feminism' which makes it sound much less interesting and relevant to the homeschool than it really y is. This is a thorough treatment of the proper understanding of male/female roles which is particularly helpful for parents who hope to train up their children to be stable and Godly parents in the next generation. So much of our culture is deliberately undermining the uniqueness of men and women and this error even pervades the church. We as mothers of boys especially will be vastly helped in our job in the present and will be enabled to help our boys to find the right way for them to develop if we would take time to read and assimilate the essays in this book. I highly recommend it.

    D'Nealian Handwriting Manuscript ABC Book: Handwriting Practice
        
    $ 9.95
    I bought this book for my 5 year-old who is now in Kindergarten. I was very impressed with the various ways in which it encourages young ones to practice their writing. It contains guides for each letter, rhymes, pictures to color geared to the letters, and best of all, pull-out cards to use to review the process. Well worth the price for your beginning writer.



    # 673360229

    D'Nealian Handwriting Cursive ABC Book: Handwriting Practice Boo

    I bought this book, along with some others, for my 2nd grader this past winter. It contains the usual practice areas for writing the letters, as well as a poem on each page to copy, emphasizing the chosen letter. The best part is the pull-out practice cards which allow a youngster to review the process of forming the letters by tracing with their fingers (a process the Montessori method uses as well).

    English from the Roots Up, Vol. 1: Help for Reading, Writing, Sp
    Joegil K. Lundquist     
    $ 29.95
    A large format spiral-bound softback book giving an introduction to a selection of common Greek and Latin words which form the basis of some very familiar words. A great aid for spelling and general knowledge. This is the one subject which all my children clamour for every week. Each child builds up a collection of record cards with Latin or Greek words with explanations and examples on the reverse. You could add etymology as a subject in your homeschool.


    # 1885942311

    English from the Roots Up, Vol. 2: Help for Reading, Writing, Sp
        
    $ 29.95
    This is an excellent book to have and to use in any language arts program. I've used it with my grade 3s and my grade 4s. I didn't use flash cards as suggested; instead, I wrote the root words out on chart paper and then wrote out any words we knew from that root. For instance, "spec" is to see; knowing this, the students could then define spectator and spectacles.

    Dr Peter Leithart.
    BRIGHTEST HEAVEN OF INVENTION     
    $ 7.8
    Shakespeare was a great observer, who was able to see into the patterns of human character. Dare anyone say that these insights are irrelevant to living in the real world? For many in an older generation, the Bible and the Collected Shakespeare were the two indispensable books. Leithart's perceptive walk through these plays is written especially for a high-school level course, but older students will benefit as well. The six plays discussed are: Henry V, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, and Much Ado About Nothing

    An introduction to teaching basic English for about 7-year-olds. I am using this with 4 children aged from 9 to 5 and all are enjoying it. A very 'Charlotte Masonesque' book. Originally published in 1900, it uses wonderful pictures to stimulate the child's imagination and lead him or her into writing. The grammar introduced includes those things necessary to the writing task. There are memorization assignments, oral compositions, written compositions and practice exercises.

    The Fallacy Detective
        
    $ 22
    A wonderful little logic book, that can be enjoyed on several levels. First of all it is a great homeschooling resource. Second, it's a useful way to get research if you're stuck on a logic test. Thirdly, it is peppered throughout with great cartoons from the classics "Calvin and Hobbes" and "Peanuts" as well as the less classic "Dilbert." Lastly, it's just plain hilarious! You'll laugh your head off with anecdotes about putting a smoke detector in the fireplace. Absolutely, don't miss.

    Zoombinis Logical Journey
        The Learning Company
    $ 19.99
    Not too long ago, Zoombinis enjoyed the good life. Though they all looked slightly different--different eyes, noses, hair, feet--such differences meant nothing to the Zoombinis. And so they lived happily on Zoombini Isle, making small, useful products, which were prized the world over." So begins an unsuspectingly addictive CD-ROM, featuring uncommonly fun reasoning games that require serious problem solving and math-thinking work. Yet the perils that face this cheerful society are not as fearsome as the amount of time you'll potentially spend on this pursuit. Beware the chubby, chattering Zoombinis if you don't want to get hooked to your computer for at least 90 minutes a session!

    The Grapes Of Math
    Gregory Tang     
    $ $16.95
    Greg Tang shows readers creative ways to use patterns and combinations of numbers to solve math puzzles quickly and effectively. The Grapes Of Math by Gregory Tang and Harry Briggs has one genre of math problems presented in an amusing fashion with good art. The genre is patterns of objects with breaks in the patterns. The children are expected to look at the patterns as groupings or shapes to figure out the total number of objects without counting one-by-one. This is a good book. The kids like it. The problems are amusing, even bordering on tickling. My only problem with this book is that an overview of methods for solving the problems should be at the beginning. But so what? There are a few ways to look at the problems and the kids actually sit down to do them without being pestered.

In Renaissance universities, the trivium (literally, the crossing of three part way) formed the essence of the liberal arts curriculum. Examined are topics such as the nature and function of language, distinguishing general grammar from special grammar, the study of logic and its relationship to grammar and rhetoric, and applying the concepts of logic, grammar, and rhetoric to literary works.
