This book provides an in-depth look at one film for each period of American history.
The part that I like best is that it also provides a list of other movies set in the time period if you are not able to get the movie that they focus on.
They did provide a blank sheet for analyzing a movie on your own and included a glossary of movie terms that I didn't know. That was nice.
I would have rated it higher if they would have gone into more detail on the "other movie" list. If they could have given one or two pages to each of about 3-4 movies and let me pick and choose (even if I choose to do them all!), rather than dedicate several pages to one movie that I might not want to use or might not be able to get.
This small book has 7 sections(number of ideas):
Play with Words(45),
Word Analysis (with 3 subsections: Phonics(13), Spelling(8), Word Structure(9)),
Word Puzzles and Brain Teasers(49), and
Activities for Special Needs(17).
Each idea gives a grade or span of grades for which it would be acceptable. Many of these ideas could be converted quickly and easily to a homemade worksheet, game, or bulletin board.
Cover says The SPICE Series.
Although there are few or no pictures, this would be a good book to use instead of The Mailbox Magazine.
Great coffee-table book that is thin enough (80 pages) to pick up and look at, but still packed with cool pictures of old cars! Great for a coffee table where a guy lives! Or cut out some of the pictures to stick in frames to make a wall collage!
I thought this book would help me help my child. It says: "The basic manual on Educational Kinesiology for parents and teachers of kids of all ages!" But I didn't find it easy to follow. It looks written by hand and from the child's view. There are some explanations interspersed into the text. The most useful part is in the back of the book with a list of what to do as a parent (or teacher), however, it is in "checklist" format, so sometimes you have to refer to other pages to "get" what you are supposed to do and they don't tell you what page to refer to. The useful part is the last 10-15 pages. 10 if you just want to know how to use it, 15 if you want to know why it works. I preferred the Orange Brain Gym book that also looks handwritten, but the diagrams and text are both together on the page.
Loaded with information. I had hoped for more ideas about record keeping, but there were some ideas and some of my questions were answered. I found some other useful ideas about organization, lesson plans, and field trips.
Although the title includes "teacher's manual and answer book" this has the exercises for students. The answers are included on the first and last few pages. I think they intend for the teacher/parent to take the answers out and then have the student do the activities in the book. 64 pages
Time, food, finances, home/property, projects, kids, and more! I can't put all of the ideas in this book into use, but even adopting a few makes life run smoother. Having the lists that she has made available in her book means a few less lists I'd have to make on my own. This is one handy book!!
