No-Nonsense

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Nonsense is defined as words or language having no meaning or conveying no intelligible ideas; things of no importance or value, trifles.  On one hand, I enjoy nonsense, in its rightful place.  The quite important, intelligent babble of an excited toddler makes me smile, but it does often sound like nonsense.  I delight in the nonsensical games that children create to play.  My husband thinks I’m beautiful, and that is utter nonsense, but it warms my heart just the same.

On the other hand, I appreciate that “America’s Math Teacher,” Richard Fisher, believes Algebra should be clear and concise.  He has added No-Nonsense Algebra to his Mastering Essential Math Skills Series, published by Math Essentials.

 

 

No-Nonsense Algebra is an over-size, soft bound book, with no-frills-black on white printed pages, plus free access to corresponding online video lessons.  Each lesson is self-contained, and covered in two pages – Introduction, Examples, Exercises, and Review.  There are many examples with fully explained step-by-step solutions.  You glean important and necessary instruction without the distracting trifles.  Rick Fisher’s teaching style is conversational and interesting.  He explains each topic in a way that can be easily understood.

 

There are 10 Chapters; nearly 200 pages, covering:

Necessary Tools for Algebra

Solving Equations

Graphing and Analyzing Linear Equations

Solving and Graphing Inequalities

Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities

Polynomials

Rational Expressions (Algebraic Fractions)

Radical Expressions and Geometry

Quadratic Equations

and Algebra Word Problems

You’ll also find Useful Resources in the back of the book.  A Glossary of Terms, Algebraic and Geometric Formulas, and Important Symbols.  There is a Multiplication Table, Commonly Used Prime Numbers, Squares and Square Roots, Fraction/Decimal Equivalents, and Solutions to the student exercises.

Having used No-Nonsense Algebra I can confidently say we have clearly seen improved comprehension of formulas and equations, and better test scores.  At just $27.95, an award-winning math teacher is personally tutoring my students, for less than a dollar a week, since Rick supplies whole-family video access with the purchase of the book!  It doesn’t take a math whiz to see that this is no-nonsense!

Mastering Essential Math Skills workbook series is a highly successful mathematics teaching system, that prepares any student for Algebra.  Each workbook uses Review Skills, Lesson Hints, and Problem Solving for reinforcement and mastery of a concept.  Individual books in the series are:  Decimals and Percents, Fractions, Geometry, Pre-Algebra Concepts, Problem Solving, and Whole Numbers and Integers.  These workbooks are geared to compliment any math curriculum, and although we did not have the time to thoroughly use the Essential Math – Geometry, yet, I’m looking forward to adding it to our schedule in the Fall.  There is also Book One, for grades 4/5, and Book Two, for Middle Grades/High School, with companion tutorial DVD’s available, that create a complete mathematics program.

Mr. Fisher is so confident that his Essential Math Skills will positively affect your student that he offers an Unconditional – No Risk – Guarantee.  If you use the materials for 20 minutes a day, as directed, and you don’t see improved math test scores, send Rick Fisher a note saying so.  You’ll receive a complete refund.

My Crew mates had the opportunity to review No-Nonsense Algebra, and several of the other Math Essentials products.  I’m especially interested in reading their opinions of Mastering Essential Math Skills – Book One.  This is a book and tutorial DVD set, for $33.95.  You, too, can read each of their reviews when you click on the banner below and follow the link.

Patience Assistance

Posted by: | Comments (4)

I usually have the patience for questions, asked multiple times a day.  Actually, I’ve spent years trying to encourage and build a foundation of there-are-no-stupid-questions; so ask me anything!  But, I tend to lose patience when I’ve answered the same question many times and the recipient of the answer doesn’t seem to be paying attention, or I’ve given instructions, that seem to be received with understanding, only there is no follow through.

I’ve handled it in different ways, over the years. I have had ears checked, on occasion, to make sure I wasn’t missing a physical  ailment that was causing a hearing problem.  I would give fewer instructions at a time, and have the child repeat my list, or I’ve dictated my list and had my child write it.  I’ve even disciplined for the lack of focus – write this sentence, 20 times, “I will do my best to pay attention when I’m being spoken to, and I will focus on the tasks assigned to me.”  Yes, I did!  Admittedly, it was great for Penmanship practice, but that’s about all.

Recently, I discovered that this may be a fairly common auditory processing issue.  Realizing that I’m not being ignored, or directly disobeyed, goes a long way to assist my patience, and helps me to be more tolerant and understanding. I also have an actual issue that I can trouble shoot.  HearBuilder – Auditory Memory is an interactive CD-Rom, published by Super Duper Publications, for grades K – 8.  It is designed to help your child develop and strengthen their abilities to recall verbal information, and that sounds like a possible solution, to me.

Your child will work with Recall Agents to thwart the plans of Dr. Forgetsit [Forgets It] to take over MemoryTown.

 

Mission Adventures cover Memory for Numbers (3-7 digits), Memory for Words (3-5 words), Memory for Details (1-4 details), Auditory Closure (sentence completion); Memory for WH Information (2-3 sentences/2-4 questions – who, what, where, when; why).

 

 

 

The software program can keep track of 1 – 4 players; so, four of my children have been utilizing this program, several times a week, for several weeks.   The graphics are colorful and seem age appropriate.  It is fun and entertaining, keeping them interested through as many levels as I will let them play, at one time.  The learning is done through games/missions, and without doubt, my children like this program!  Two of them are just over half way through the missions; so far they seem fairly easy, and I wonder how it is affecting their skill levels.  The other two are not quite half way, yet.  I have not noticed a marked difference in any of their memory retention.  If  I don’t see some improvement by the time they complete the program, then I think  HB Auditory Memory, at  $69.95, is expensive fun.  We will definitely complete the program, and probably even go through it a second time, with one child.  This is research-based, award-winning software and I want it to work.  If my children learn strategies for remembering, and improve their abilities to recall verbal information, then HB Auditory Memory is an exceptional value.  I just can’t, honestly, tell you which it is, for us, yet.

My Crew mates have had the opportunity to review this program, and a few of the other products offered by Super Duper Publications.   You can read about them when you click the banner below and follow the link.  Also, please, visit the Super Duper website!  They have many new Android Apps; Fun Decks – Sequencing, Inferences, Pronoun Parade; All About You, All About Me, and more, plus interesting information and help for special needs.  When you find something you like, use code BLGAM30 at check out, through August 31, 2012, and you will receive a generous 30 % Discount on your order!

Study Geography Alongside History

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 

“It only makes sense to study geography alongside history.  In history, we learn about time, places, and people.  Geography covers the places part.”  I’d like to tell you that we’ve been studying this way throughout our homeschool journey, but I can not.  It’s more likely that we are just above the  “less than one-third of elementary and high school students showed proficiency in geography,”  as reported by the U.S. Education Department.

Children in America do not spend the time learning the lay of the land.  They do not recognize where a country is on a map, and certainly can’t identify the black outline of most countries.  Many do not know where the States of The Union are in relationship to one another.  If this isn’t sad enough, as cell phones and GPS systems become more available, students are not even developing map reading skills.

We like to travel by car.  We enjoy hiking and exploring nature, and kayaking on the lake; so, we’ve taught our children how to read a map.  They know how to follow directions, understand North, South, East and West; can calculate distance and recognize terrain, etc.  In our house, learning the names of our States, their black outlines, where they’re located, and the name of their capital city, is a common occurrence, along with the memorization of the names of the Presidents of the United States, and the recitation of the 66 Books of The Bible, among other things, but not in connection to our history.  This would be the reason we might fall outside the statistical average.

Our World Geography knowledge is poor, but I’m steadily working toward changing that, with the assistance of Knowledge Quest and their Map Trek collection of historical outline maps.

 

 

 

 

Map Trek maps are in chronological sequence; so, they can be used in conjunction with any chronological history program.  There is also specific curricula that is complimented by the use of Map TrekTruthQuest History, Tapestry of Grace, Sonlight Curriculum, Mystery of History, Living Books, and Ambleside Online, to name a few.  Free Curriculum Integration Guides are available.

Current volumes of Map Trrek include:

Map Trek – Ancient World

Map Trek – Medievel World

Map Trek – New World

Map Trek – Modern World

incorporating  the

Map Trek – U.S. Edition

There are full-color teacher maps, black outline maps, and reproducible student maps, available.  It is recommended that map study be added to a curriculum, once or twice a week.  Since we are just building our map-study-habit, we chose to use the maps just once a week.  The maps and activities are broken down into three categories; covering grades K – 12.  I chose the U.S. Edition; printing maps from our birth states and becoming familiar with their facts, even though our long term goal is to improve our World geography knowledge.  The best map work is fun and interactive, and that makes Map Trek one of the best!

~

Individual Map Trek Editions for The World are $14.95, with the U.S. Editions being $19.95 in e-book format.  The complete set of 6 e-books is $47.00, and the beautifully bound, over-sized, hard cover book, with a CD-Rom of reproducible student maps is $55.00.

Balance in Education

Posted by: | Comments (1)

I took a typing course in school and it has served me well for many years.  I’ve secured jobs because of the skill I acquired and I made the transition to keyboarding easier than many, because I was already familiar with the QWERTY board.  Just as I teach my children to write manuscript, progressing to cursive, I also teach them typing/keyboarding skills.

I’ve just discovered Keyboarding for the Christian School.

 

 

 

Keyboarding for the Christian School is written for grades 6 – 12.  It contains clear directions and manageable assignments.  In 43 lessons, author, Leanne Beitel has created a complete typing curriculum.  She teaches the Home KeysAlphabetic, Numbers and Symbol Keys, How to Center and Set Margins, How to format a Personal-Business Letter and Business Letters; How to create a Cover Page, Works Cited and Bibliography, just as I learned, but Keyboarding for the Christian School uses Bible references for the instruction and practice.

I have often used Scripture copy work for manuscript and cursive writing practice; so I have found Christian Keyboarding to be an ideal fit for us.  “Filling Your Student’s Mind with God’s Word Using Typing Skills,” is Leanne’s tag line and I think it’s perfect!  My child typed and centered, horizontally and vertically, 4 Psalms, as assigned in this typing course.  This seems like a balance in education to me, and I appreciate the availability of this curriculum.

Keyboarding for the Christian School , purchased as an e-book, is $15.95.  Also available is, Elementary  – basic keyboarding, for K – 5th grades, at just $12.95.

Who Is My Neighbor?

Posted by: | Comments (1)

“The fact is that we are better together than we are apart.  A family, a neighborhood, a church, or a country is more than just a collection of what each person brings to the group.  Together, we enrich each other’s lives through our individual interests, gifts, and talents.  And only when we live and work and play together can we become the kinds of healthy, balanced, purpose-filled people God created us to be.”  My family challenges and inspires me to be the best I can be, for God and my world.  I desire to do the same for them.

Who Is My Neighbor? And Why Does He Need Me?  is the third book in the series, What We Believe, published by Apologia Press with Summit Ministries.

What We Believe is a Biblical worldview series.  It is my responsibility to teach my children “how to use Scripture as a lens; viewing the world through it.”   If I don’t, I set them up to become a grim statistic –

“Well over two-thirds of young people leave church soon after graduating from high school or starting college.  Many are already gone by their teen years,” says Davis Carman, steward of Apologia Educational Ministries.  The vision for the What We Believe series is, as quoted from Apologia:

  • to help children build their lives on the solid rock of God and His Word
  • to encourage family discipleship as an educational model
  • to eliminate the fear factor of teaching worldview at home
  • to decrease the rate at which young men and women are leaving the Christian faith

 

Who Is My Neighbor? And Why Does He Need Me? is beautifully bound in a hard cover book.  It is an easy to read conversation, geared for students ages 6 – 14.  You can find a Lesson 1 sample here.  Who Is My Neighbor? is Scripturally sound, but not denominationally specific.  It touches many subjects; teaching more than Bible.

 

 

I believe the return on the $39 investment for the textbook, which includes access to additional resources and many online extras, has the possibility of being incalculable.  There is also a Notebooking Journal – $24, and a Coloring Book – $8, that corresponds to and reinforces each lesson.

 

 

I have had the privilege of teaching  Who Is God? And How Can I Know Him? and Who Am I? And What Am I Doing Here? , and we are now savoring Who Is My Neighbor? And Why Does He Need Me?.  We continue to read, notebook, discuss and ponder, question, answer and memorize.  I wholeheartedly endorse this worldview curriculum.  It has been a joy to use such well-written, dependable material.

~

There is a lesson plan outlined for each book in the series, but it is not mandated.  In fact, each book is set up to allow maximum flexibility.  We learn at our own pace.  It is also noteworthy that each book is set up to stand on its own and must not necessarily build upon the previous one, although, there are keys that connect from one to the other.  Personally, I appreciate the order designed by the authors, and I’m pleased we started with the first book.

Who Is My Neighbor? And Why Does He Need Me? is a detailed 276 pages, comprised of  8 Lessons, each structured around The Big Idea – which is an intro to the main subject.

Chapters covered include:

  1. Does Anyone Really Need Me?  “Two are better than one… If one falls down, his friend can help him up, but pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!”  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
  2. How Can I Make A Difference?  “My children, we should love people not only with words and talk, but by our actions and true caring.”  1 John 3:18
  3. Who Is My Neighbor?  “I tell you the truth, anything you did for even the least of my people here, you also did for me.”  Matthew 25:40
  4. Why Did God Make Families?  “Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”  Mark 10:9
  5. What Can I Do For My Country?  “He makes nations great, and destroys them:  He enlarges nations, and disperses them.”  Job 12:23
  6. Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?  “For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.”  James 3:16
  7. Who Is God’s Family?  “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”  Galatians 6:10
  8. Why Does The Church Need Me?  “Be encouraged and knit together, by strong ties of love.”  Colossians 2:2

 

 

I use the learning objectives for each lesson, laid out in What You Will Do, to guide our conversations and reinforce what we read.    

A Short Story is read and used to demonstrate a situation and how it might be handled when a Christian Worldview is in action.  The stories contain marvelous detail, and although they can run long, my children anticipate each one!

Vocabulary words are listed separately in Words You Need To Know.  I have the children write these and their definitions, along with their Bible memory verses, from Hide It In Your Heart, first.  We refer back to them as needed.

There are various articles in each lesson, touching on subjects of art, music, math and science, etc., that tie into the main idea – either directly or through the short story.  This is Integrated Learning.  In a section titled What Should I Do?, a specific Godly character trait is highlighted.  Combining Integrated Learning and What Should I Do?  gives us the opportunity to brainstorm several scenarios and the best way to handle them.

I use the Prayer section as a model, to keep our prayer time focused on the attributes of the lesson.

Encounters with Jesus is one of our favorite portions of each lesson.  It “is a story, adapted from Scripture, about a person who encountered Jesus during His ministry on earth… Through these stories students can explore how Jesus showed God’s love to individuals in their time of need, thus providing an example for students to follow as they meet people in need.”

Thanks to Apologia Press, Worldview Study is no longer a dynamic I neglect in our Bible studies.  In every lesson, we are given knowledge that helps us center our lives on God’s Truth, knowing what we believe and why.  “When we recognize the components of our own worldview, we can begin to look at other worldviews and understand why others believe as they do.”  As Christians, we have a hope in Christ Jesus, The One True and Living God, that other religions don’t have.  Worldview equips us to effectively communicate that hope to others.

Through all four books in this series, we are reminded that we are building a House of Truth In this volume, Who Is My Neighbor?, we erect the third wall, the Servanthood Wall, adding on to the foundation and the first wall, the Fellowship Wall, built in Who Is God?, and the second wall, the Image-Bearing Wall,  from Who Am I?.  This is intended as a memory aid and can be drawn in the notebook, built with items you have on hand, or purchased separately from Summit Ministries, as a three-dimensional, build-as-you-go model.

It is my hope that I have laid a firm foundation; built my house and home on Truth, and that my sons, as they travel to Quebec, Canada, this week, on a mission trip, to minister to the needs of our neighbors, will have assurance and full confidence in sharing their worldview.  May The Lord keep them, and may they be “salt and light”  for the cause of Christ.

Building My Confidence with Professor B

Posted by: | Comments (0)

You may remember that I am a “wordy.”  I’m not a numbers kinda gal.  I have done and can do higher math, but I don’t find the pleasure in it, like I do language and grammar.  As a home educator, though, I have the responsibility to teach math, and as a parent, I want my children to embrace it, and every other subject for that matter, according to their own bent; not influenced by mine.

Professor B Math is an online math program, with a unique history and philosophy that sets it apart from other online math programs.  It is complete with instruction, but has no sound, or anything that would be considered “bells and whistles,” as my children might call it.  Professor B aids anyone lacking full confidence in their ability to teach math – parents, grandparents, older siblings; mentors –  to indeed, instruct their student, as a master teacher.

 

 

Click graphic for FAQ’s

 

Professor B is a professorish-looking bumblebee, wearing spectacles and a bow-tie; using a classroom pointer.  You are the teacher, going through each lesson with the Professor and your student.

 

 

Click graphic to view Sample Lessons.

 

 

Created by Professor Everard Barrett, Professor B is designed for Preschool through Middle School, covering basic arithmetic through Algebra.  Professor Barrett believes math can/should flow like a story, not fragmented with pieces/parts of concepts.  The Professor B  bee works through educational slides, with you, as the instructor, reading his word balloons to your student.   He gives the “why” behind an equation or formula, encouraging use and practice.  “Mastery once obtained must be sustained”  is the charge to instructors at the end of each lesson, but he is not an advocate of learning through rote memorization.

There is sufficient achievement data to support Professor Barrett’s claims that the diligent use of the Professor B Math program can accomplish  “3 years of math in 1 year,”  which was a huge draw for us, and it can eliminate the need for any expensive tutoring.

 

There are 3 Levels of Instruction available:

Level 1 ~ PreK – 2nd Grade

Intro, Lower & Higher Addition/Subtraction

Counting to 100

Place Value

Fractional Parts

Time

Money

+=+=+=+

Level 2 ~ 3rd – 5th Grade

Multiplication/Division

Intro to Fractions >

Fractional Equivalence

Addition/Subtraction of Fractions

+=+=+=+

Level 3 ~ 6th – 8th Grade

Multiplication/Division of Fractions

Decimals

Percents

It is worth noting that each level can be used for the remediation of older learners according to their need.  Professor B does have placement tests, but we did not use one.  We found this program is easy to implement from “where you are.”

+=+=+=+

Subscriptions can be paid per month or per year.  The Professor B Math website is being updated, as of this writing, June 2012, but their best price offer is available nowCall Customer Service @ 678-765-6655  and get 3 years access to any one level for $100.

Professor B has built my confidence to teach my children math.  I know more than I sometimes give myself credit for, and my children have pointed it out more than once, especially while using this program.  They enjoy my voice/instruction, and understand me better, than they do Professor B.   Because I’m not computerized, I can move forward, quicker than the slides, or slower, as might be needed for a new concept.  I recognize, though, that I am a better math instructor when I’m working with Professor B.   We go through a lesson together, slide by slide, and I know what I’m teaching and how to teach it, following the example of the bee.  Then, I can further explain, assign practice worksheets or see-for-myself that my student is ready to move on.  It’s been a win-win situation for us!

Please, use the many links I’ve provided throughout this post to learn more.  You can also click the banner below to read what my Crew mates have to say about this program, and check it out for yourself – Professor B Math offers a 30 day Free Trial, too!   Again, just call 678-765-6655 and ask for it!
