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.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
