DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Fun-schooling Curriculum - Homeschooling with Minecraft: The Beginners Journal Animal and Farm Theme B1 & B2 ideal for ages 7-10 (1st-3rd grade) This Minecraft based curriculum is perfect for creative children, and for new homeschoolers. Cover all basic Elementary subjects while having fun with farming, building, design and animals in the Minecraft world. Our delight directed approach works great for all students, especially those resistant to anything "school"-related. Uses the Dyslexie Font to make reading easy for children with reading confusion. Perfect for students with Dyslexia, Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD and other learning challenges. Mrs Europaea's family loves this book: "Fun-schooling with Thinking Tree Books has saved my family endless bouts of tantrums from my child who was always too anxious to focus in a traditional school setting and would act out. With this newest book, Homeschooling with Minecraft, the Browns have once again created a multipurpose curriculum that could be used simultaneously with various ages. It is such a blessing and stress reliever to be able to teach both my 9 year old nephew and my own children ages 5 and 3 out of the same text, only having to supplement with reference resources that are age appropriate. This book offers journal prompts, varying levels of math, drawing ideas, coloring pages, geography and much more. It doesn't matter which method you are using, Mason, Waldorf, Classical or even if you are Unschooling, Thinking Tree Books are appropriate to meet any educational goal." M. Ward loves how this journal compares Minecraft to real life: "This journal incorporates everything my son loves: animals, lego, nature, books, and of course Minecraft. And the best part about it all is that he loves working in these journals, and it's fun for him and not drudgery like so many school workbooks. It allows him to express his creativity even while working on subjects like math, so much so that it doesn't even feel like "school". I especially love the pages in this journal where he is to compare real life animals or farming to that which he sees on Minecraft. I see this meshing well with real hands on gardening (which we were already planning to do this spring). He's still working on his reading fluency, so I'm happy to have something with which he can further his education on other topics without being hampered by his stage of literacy."

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Delight Directed Learning Guide for Christian Homeschooling More than 300 activity pages! Study 8 Subjects and put faith first! For Ages 7 to 17 - Includes Daily Bible Reading, Realistic Animal Art, Unit Studies, Science, Reading, Spelling, History, Current Events, Drawing & Logic! This beautiful learning experience provides your students dozens of wonderful learning experiences. Mom, you will only need to help your child for the first three days and then the student will be able to work dependently. This handbook is designed to accompany up to nine library books, and several educational movies and documentaries based on the student's interests and learning goals. For example your daughter may want to learn more about Victorian clothing, photo editing, baking cupcakes, babysitting, travel to Italy, nutrition, and pioneer life, now all you need to do is get a stack of books and movies about these topics. Maybe you have a son who is into World War 2, weapons, airplanes, fast cars, space, dinosaurs and tree houses. You would get books and movies about these topics for him. The purpose of this homeschooling plan is to give homeschooling moms a break while the children use this study guide. We know that moms have seasons in life where sickness, new babies, holidays, moves and transitions limit the homeschooling process. With this program your children will thrive and learn unforgettable lessons while you get the rest you need or focus on other things without feeling guilty that your children have been "unschooling" for too long. This handbook is as fun as unschooling but provides the structure and freedom children need. This curriculum was created by a mother of ten children who is also a Dyslexia, ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome specialist. This is the curriculum she designed for her own children who have special requirements for learning. For example the font used is perfect for Dyslexia so that the child can read without confusion about the letters. The program is also very good for students with Asperger's because it focuses on the child's special interests while integrating all the subjects that are needed for a well rounded education. Kids with ADHD love this method because it gets them out of their seat and requires art, activity, and time exploring nature! This program can be used for a wide age range because each student will choose age appropriate books to accompany this workbook. Every child in your family who is reading at a second grade level or higher can use this program, non-readers and dyslexics should complete Dyslexia Games Series A and B before starting this program. www.DyslexiaGames.com Typical mathematics is not included in this learning program, though the child will use and explore numbers in many practical ways every day.

Editor: Rodale Books

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

For centuries, experts have argued that learning was about memorizing information: You're supposed to study facts, dates, and details; burn them into your memory; and then apply that knowledge at opportune times. But this approach to learning isn't nearly enough for the world that we live in today, and in Learn Better journalist and education researcher Ulrich Boser demonstrates that how we learn can matter just as much as what we learn. In this brilliantly researched book, Boser maps out the new science of learning, showing how simple techniques like comprehension check-ins and making material personally relatable can help people gain expertise in dramatically better ways. He covers six key steps to help you "learn how to learn," all illuminated with fascinating stories like how Jackson Pollock developed his unique painting style and why an ancient Japanese counting device allows kids to do math at superhuman speeds. Boser's witty, engaging writing makes this book feel like a guilty pleasure, not homework. Learn Better will revolutionize the way students and society alike approach learning and makes the case that being smart is not an innate ability--learning is a skill everyone can master. With Boser as your guide, you will be able to fully capitalize on your brain's remarkable ability to gain new skills and open up a whole new world of possibilities.

The two girls soon find their fortunes reversed—Sophie's dumped in the School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School for Good, thrust among handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication. But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are?

Little Learning Labs: Unofficial Minecraft for Kids--an abridged edition of Unofficial Minecraft Lab for Kids--offers a variety of creative exercises that explore the game through fun, educational lessons. Activities selected from an Amazon Best Kids’ Books of 2016 pick! Balancing your child's screen time can be difficult, especially when it comes to wildly popular, open-ended video games like Minecraft. Minecraft offers players an environment focused on exploration, imagination, and creation, but its nonlinear game structure can mean spending a lot of time in the game. You will start the book by brushing up on some common Minecraft terminology and examining the two main modes of game play: creative and survival. You’ll then use this knowledge to venture off onto the six different quests that combine out-of-game and in-game activities and encourage child and adult participation. You'll even learn how to screencast and narrate your own videos to share with family and friends. Little Learning Labs: Unofficial Minecraft for Kids provides fun, educational gaming goals that you and your child can reach together!

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Do you have a student (or a few) who hates to write but loves to build online? Why not use his love of the game to inspire a desire to write? Using the different writing styles such as compare and contrast, persuasive, descriptive, process, and narrative, students will create a Minecraft guidebook lapbook. They will build the book using their knowledge of the game and create fold-outs, pop-ups, a cave tunnel book, and a chest filled with information about blocks and tools. The book is designed for students of all ages, girls and boys! You decide what is acceptable for their age/grade/ writing ability. Each writing style includes prompts, a graphic organizer, and a fun lapbook piece to be filled in by your student(s). There is even a section for a book report if you wish to use one. In the end, your students will have something they can be proud of and something they will want to share with others: a book written by them about a game they love!
