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.

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes).
