"I was looking for something that would help my very distracted son when it comes to writing and spelling. I had heard about these books so I looked them up, I joined the Facebook page and began to see how many homeschoolers loved them. So I decided to purchase this one. I have never been so happy. My son loves the pages of the book, he loves walking around the house to find words to spell. This book has changed the way I think about homeschooling, it has given me a little more freedom and creative ideas. One of the best parts of this book is in the back there is a create your own comics, my son is a super big fan of comics so he is looking forward to working on these pages. Great for struggling learners." - Mani This spelling method is best for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade, but with mom's help it can be used for children as young as five years old. the activity book can be used for Dyslexic children and children who are hyper-active, have ADHD or Autism.

There are 180 activity pages so that you can use one page per day during the school year.The method used is a unique approach for teaching visual thinkers who are artistic and intelligent, but may not be doing well with phonics and memorization. It has been said that if children can no learn the way we teach, we must teach the way they learn. That is why this book is so different from other spelling books! This book uses very creative ways of teaching children how to become naturally good spellers. Do not worry about correcting your child's work until they get to the part of the book where they are writing their own short stories. By reading their short stories you can identify all the words that the child has trouble spelling. You can teach them those words by having them write each one down seven times in different colors.Do not make any marks or corrections on the child's book, this is his or her spelling journal, and should not be damaged by grades, or marks. Celebrate everything your child shows you in this journal, and remember learning to spell is like learning to talk. Your child will have some very "cute" ways of spelling in the beginning, and all you have to do is play the COLOR GAME with those words, once the child finishes this journal. As the child works through the journal they may start by spelling some things very "creatively" don't worry! When you read their stories at the end of the book you will see that many spelling problems have "self corrected" because of all the spelling games and activities in this book. Spelling can be fun!The Color Game:There is no need to give a child random spelling lists. Just find out what words the child misspells and have them write their word 7 times on the Fun Page. Use a different color each time.

Take a deep breath and dive into the mysteries of the ocean. Our understanding of ocean life has changed dramatically in the last decade, with new species, new behaviours, and new habitats being discovered at a rapid rate. Blue Planet II, which accompanies an epic 7-part series on BBC1, is a ground-breaking new look at the richness and variety of underwater life across our planet. With over 200 breath-taking photographs and stills from the BBC Natural History Unit's spectacular footage, each chapter of Blue Planet II brings to life a different habitat of the oceanic world. Voyages of migration show how each of the oceans on our planet are connected; coral reefs and arctic ice communities are revealed as thriving underwater cities; while shorelines throw up continual challenges to those living there or passing through. A final chapter explores the science and technology of the Ocean enterprise – not only how they were able to capture these amazing stories on film, but what the future holds for marine life based on these discoveries.
