New American Cursive: Penmanship Program Workbook 1 (Memoria Press Review)

Memoria Press Review

We recently received New American Cursive: Penmanship Program Workbook 1 by Memoria Press. I had debated for a long time whether or not I was going to teach the kids cursive or not. Mostly everything we do now a days is done on the computer. I also find myself printing and not using cursive as well. I decided that I did want them to at least learn it so they could write and read it, if they chose to use it when they wrote.

Greek Morphemes Lessons (It’s NOT Greek To Me) – Ready To Teach Review

Greek Morphemes Lessons Review

One thing I really like to do is have the kids grow their vocabulary. I have started doing this with Greek Morphemes Lessons (It’s NOT Greek To Me) by Ready To Teach. We recently received the Greek Morphemes Student Book, Teachers Book, and a USB Drive with power point lessons. This is great for students in grades 7 – 12.

This is a very interesting program as it uses three areas of the brain: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. The students work through 18 lessons in Greek and 18 lessons in Latin. Each of the lessons contain 15 – 22 morphemes the students learn. The lessons consist of different learning activities of analyzing, synthesis, and evaluation. Students also make flash cards so they can learn to memorize the different morphemes.

Thick As Thieves is a book about friendship, unselfishness, and compassion. The main character is Andi, who is a 14 year old girl who grows up in California during the 1880s. Andi’s biggest love is her palomino horse named Taffy. Andi has little time to prepare herself for Taffy’s first foaling, between her chores and school. When Taffy is about to deliver the foaling it almost ended up in a disaster, until Chad (Andi’s brother) and Andi help out Taffy. Andi has spent so much time with the foals that her grades start slipping. Andi’s mom has limited her time with the foals until her grades come up.
