Middle School is here!
Our standard package for this year’s student will include:
-A thorough, grade level MATH course, printed in two-colors, presented in a well written workbook format. The Teacher’s manual is provided for us parents! (Thank you- Thank you!) This course includes all the topics that would be found in a basal mathematics program but in a workbook format making it easier for the student and easier for Mom or Dad. Reviews and summaries of previously learned topics is presented throughout the course. New concepts are introduced in an informative; “example – now you try it – example format.” Who said pre-algebra and geometry was going to be hard?
–SCIENCE will be studied using a 3 workbook series in the Life, Physical and Earth Sciences. We’re hooking your student up with technology too! – Alright! Internet connections hook ’em up with more info on topics found within the texts. A very nice, colorful and student-friendly science set is here for your child! A selection of hands-on experiments is always part of any science curriculum – this series includes these activities as well. We’re talking about an impressive worktext set with great graphics and student-immersing activities!
ALSO! This is really cool – we’re tossing in a Science Thesaurus! A What? A ScienceSaurus! A very thorough science handbook & reference book to accompany the workbook set. This is a full-color, glossy 544 page, can’t put it down, impress your friends and displease your enemies type book. Your student will have this available as a reference for years to come. Of course…we always include a full answer key set too.
BUT WAIT! That’s not all that we’ve included for 6th grade science. Oh-No…A really cool science kit is provided for science FUN! Just a little something EXTRA to help lock-in science content.
-What about History? Social Studies? Continents? Cultures? Geographical Studies?
Our SOCIAL STUDIES/HISTORY selection will cover these topics and more this homeschool year. A fine, full color, embossed, graphically intense hardcover student textbook with graphs, charts, pictures, maps, and, as always, activities will be included. Did you know chocalate was used as currency? Check out page 261 in this excellent text. This is one of our most popular social studies courses integrating; main historical themes, in-depth coverage of primary sources, vocabulary and historical social studies concepts. An answer key comes with the textbook too.
Additionally, (that means more stuff!) we’re including a computer-based program for his/her supplemental studies in CD-ROM – World History! – Your son/daughter will follow the story of human advancement from the Stone age to the magnificent Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations to the modern day. Hmmmm, just a little something extra for that “wow” factor.
-An ENGLISH GRAMMER. course in a 2-color workbook format is included as part of the Language Arts Course selection which covers all forms of Grammar, Usage, Mechanics and Application. This course features easy-to-identify rules, examples, and instructions, as well as ample cross-disciplinary and cooperative-learning activities. A very thorough Language Handbook, perforated/removable “Extra Practice” pages and Chapter/Unit tests complete this program. An answer Key/Teacher guide is part of this course also.
-“A homeschoolers delight” is how one mom described our SPELLING course/workbook. This course uses a write-in workbook format that covers much more than just spelling. Homonyms, Synonyms, Prefixes, Suffixes…you get the picture. This course incorporates correct spelling, definitions, application, and word usage. Just like our prior grades packages except at the 6th grade level. A Teacher’s Manual is provided. A manual that even includes sentences for the instructor to use while giving the weekly test. A downright spiffy spelling program!
-No! We didn’t forget READING/LITERATURE …That’s here too! We’re providing page after page after page of classics and high interest reading selections combined with skills and assessment features grouped into a full-color workbook format with answers.
Also! A theme based reading program with non-fiction, real life events and stories taken from famous headlines makes for a another excellent reading assessment program in a workbook which allows the teacher-parent (that’s you) to evaluate comprehension, main ideas, details, inferences, etc. Be certain, we’ll also give you an Answer Key.
A HEALTH supplement and a MAPPING SKILLS supplement, as well as a WRITING supplement is also placed into this package for your student.
