Homeschool Review YWAM Publishing's Jim Elliot

Hey neighbors!

Here is our latest review from the TOS Review Crew.  We received from YWAM Publishing the Jim Elliot: One Great Purpose and their Jim Elliot Unit Study Curriculum Guide.  Before we start, let me say that our family is a family of readers.  We love to read books about missionaries, preachers and heroes of the faith.  I say that because my daughter had already read this book, but having the Unit Study Curriculum Guide really made a great in depth study for her.

We as a family have often assigned books like this and then had the children do a report or project, but I really liked this guide because, chapter questions, vocabulary words, projects and other studies are already prepared for you.  You can go through and decide which ones you want to assign or if you need to skip a couple.  M really enjoyed being able to learn more from the study.  She did the Chapter Questions and we chose a few other assignments.  

From YWAM:
This unit study guide provides the homeschooling parent with ways to use the book (Jim Elliot: One Great Purpose) as a vehicle for teaching or reinforcing various curriculum areas, including:
Creative writing
Movie critiquing
Reading comprehension
Essay writing
History and geography concepts
As  there are more ideas than could possibly be used in one unit, it is the parent's job to sift through the ideas and select those that best fit the needs of the student/s.

I only used this with one student, but you could easily use this with more than one and with varyinbg ages.  You can read together out loud, or have each indivikdual do their own reading and then they would work on their own age appropriate assigments.  

Memory Verses are provided.  Your child can memorize all of them spread out through the book, or you could read through them and choose one that is special to your child to memorize.  

One really neat hands-on project is to create a poster advertising Jim Elliot as a guest speaker in your hometown or at your youth group. They can design the poster and add information they have learned from their reading.  Your child can then hang or display this in their room.  They can also do tree and leaf rubbings!  This is one we are planning on doing.  Especially with our leaves starting to fall.

There is just so much this curriculum has to offer as far as Social Studies, Geography, History that will encourage your child to study and learn.  You can purchase both the book ($6.99 for either paperback or download) and the Unit Study Guide (paperback only $7.49) at the YWAM Publications website.

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.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1.
