Hewitt Lightning Lit and Comp British Christian Authors

Hi Neighbors!

Here is my next TOS Crew homeschool review!  I am really enjoying the chance to try out some new curriculum and different companies than I am used to using.  I am sure there will be some I enjoy more than others, or even some that are a different type of learning than we use, but this is truly a blessing.  For this review I received from Hewitt Homeschooling Resources, the Lightning Lit and Comp, British Christian Authors 19th-20th Century.  Wow that was long!  Anyway, from this point on I will refer to it as British Christian Authors!  I received the Student Workbook $29.95), along with the Teacher's Guide ($2.95).

This program should help your student to acquire college-level composition skills. I appreciate that this course British Christian Authors came with enough instructions for the teacher that it was easy to use and to grade.  (They include grading tips!)  You may follow the semester plan or the whole year plan.  Your student will be writing two papers for each book.  Yes, you do need to find some other books (4), but we usually check our library or online first.  You can purchase the entire set, including the 4 extra books for $70.99.

Now, instead of covering everything in the book, I am going to tell you a few highlights we found.  I like that each lesson focuses on a certain aspect of writing.  For example one, discusses the hows and whys of writing literary analysis, and another focuses on possible purposes for writing.  There are comprehension questions at the end of each lesson, which we went over together.  This opened up discussion regarding what had been read.  We are really working on good compositions this summer. Technically your child (teenager) should be able to complete this course with just a little assistance when necessary and of course grading!

My daughter really enjoyed the lesson on Amy Carmichael.  She loves to read about Christians in history and she has done some previous reading on Amy Carmichael.  She enjoyed learning about Pearleyes, one of the temple children in India.

Lightning Literature and Composition are well worth looking into. They do cover American Christian Authors also.  And do remember that Lightning Literature has many different levels to choose from.  Be sure to click on the banner below to read other reviews of the Hewitt Homeschooling Resources Lightning Lit.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
