Memoria Press The Book of the Ancient Romans

Memoria Press Review

Hey neighbors!

Here is another one of our curriculum reviews through The Old Schoolhouse Crew!  Memoria Press made several different choices available and I chose: The Book of the Ancient Romans by Dorothy Mills.  M loves history, so this was a perfect fit for her.  We received the student textbook, student workbook and the teacher's guide for this course.  This Ancient Romans set is designed for grades 6-12.  This is a series written by Dorothy Mills in the 1920's for middle school students and now brought back into publication by Memoria Press.

Memoria Press Review

M participated in this class three days a week.  She has enjoyed learning more about ancient Rome.  She loves to throw out fun little facts she has learned, or she tries to stump her siblings by asking questions about her lesson that she hopes they don't know the answer to.  She thinks it is great when she can "teach" her older siblings something.  One of the first things covered in the book was the story of  Romulus and Remus which she had previously learned a little bit about through a DVD we had watched.  This was one of the stories she enjoyed sharing with her siblings.

She has been able to work through the book at her own pace.  She reads the assigned selection from the textbook for the day or week, and then completes lessons in the workbook.  Since she loves ancient history this was not a problem to encourage her to read her assignments.  The textbook is well written and held her attention.  When she has completed her assignment it is then easy for myself or one of her older sisters to check her work with the teacher's guide.

The workbook consists of Facts to Know, Vocabulary, Comprehension Questions and Activities.  The vocabulary sections included Latin Vocabulary words occasionally.  Reviews are spaced throughout the workbook, usually after 3-8 lessons are completed.  Some of the other activities include: drawing maps, working on a continuing timeline, extra research and some Bible reading.  We did not do many of the activities, other than the Bible reading and some extra research.  M is trying to graduate early, as in 2 years instead of the 3 she has left.   By cutting back a little on the extra activities she is able to complete more.  One more reason why I love homeschooling!

I would recommend Memoria Press to my homeschooling friends and others.  Visit their site for more information and to see samples of The Book of the Ancient Romans.  You will also find some other related curriculum listed at the bottom of the page.  They offer so much more than just the curriculum reviewed by the Crew.

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.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.
