This practical, positive book reveals the many parenting strategies that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar use as they preside over America’s best-known mega-family. Each time a new baby arrives, the press from around the world clamors for interviews and information. Visitors are amazed to find seventeen (baby number eighteen is due January 1, 2009) well-groomed, well-behaved, well-schooled children in a home that focuses on family, financial responsibility, fun—and must importantly, faith. Readers will learn about the Duggars’ marriage—how they communicate effectively, make family decisions, and find quality time alone. They’ll discover how the Duggars manage to educate all their children at home, while providing experiences that go beyond the family walls, through vacations and educational trips. And they’ll see how the Duggar family manages their finances and lives debt-free—even when they built their own 7,000-square-foot house. Answering the oft asked question—How can I do with one or two children what you do with seventeen(soon to be eighteen)?—Jim Bob and Michelle reveal how they create a warm and welcoming home filled with what Michelle calls “serene chaos.” They show how other parents can succeed whether they’re rearing a single child or several. With spiritual insights, experience-based wisdom, practical tips, and plenty of humorous and tender anecdotes, the Duggars answer the questions that pour into the family’s Web site on a daily basis—especially after every national media interview and TV appearance—including their segments on the Discovery Health Channel’s “Meet the Duggars” series.

Educators, politicians, parents, and even students are consumed with speaking the language of academic achievement. Yet something is missing in the current focus on accountability, standardized testing, and adequate yearly progress. If schools continue to focus the conversation on rigor and accountability and ignore more human elements of education, many students may miss out on opportunities to discover the richness of individual exploration that schools can foster. In The Best Schools, Armstrong urges educators to leave narrow definitions of learning behind and return to the great thinkers of the past 100 years--Montessori, Piaget, Freud, Steiner, Erikson, Dewey, Elkind, Gardner--and to the language of human development and the whole child. The Best Schools highlights examples of educational programs that are honoring students' differences, using developmentally appropriate practices, and promoting a humane approach to education that includes the following elements: * An emphasis on play for early childhood learning. * Theme- and project-based learning for elementary school students. * Active learning that recognizes the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of adolescents in middle schools. * Mentoring, apprenticeships, and cooperative education for high school students. Educators in "the best schools" recognize the differences in the physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual worlds of students of different ages. This book will help educators reflect on how to help each student reach his or her true potential, how to inspire each child and adolescent to discover an inner passion to learn, and how to honor the unique journey of each individual through life.
A Bundle of our Phonics packets designed to be used after you have completed any of the FIRST 50 lessons of the wonderful reading program, "Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons".- We have sounds flash cards, - phonics activities, - worksheets- and fun crafts that are tied in with the sounds of all 100 phonics lessons your child has completed with you. - There are also helpful writing practice sheets that are useful for follow-up with the sounds. Sometimes, children need a little something extra to turn on the light of excitement inside them. These supplements are exactly what is needed to turn that light on!"As a homeschool mom, I was hesitant about "100 Easy Lessons" because of the lack of reinforcement activities provided by the curriculum itself. Once we found GlimmerCat's packets, it was an easy choice for us to continue with using it with our kindergartner. He has not only done beautifully with "100 Easy Lessons," but has thrived with these additional packets because of our ability to reinforce the lessons with quick and easy worksheets (that he actually enjoys!), crafts, and the flash cards that make reviewing the sounds he's learned easy to do no matter where we are. We have laminated the flash cards with each packet, and keep them handy for waiting rooms, long car rides, and restaurants, and have enjoyed making card games of our own with them to help him review. Thank you for such a great resource!"It's that time! You've found your reading curriculum because it was recommended to you by almost every other homeschooler you have run across. It's all included in one beautiful "not-so-little" book with this huge title: "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons".You've even skimmed through the first few pages and you're just itching to try it all out, with your child sitting in your lap, reading through the sounds with you.Here's the only catch: You had hoped to include a few complimentary crafts for your beginning reader and maybe a few follow-ups along with Siegfried Engelmann's valuable reading instruction. You are aware already that repetition for small ones is vital, and although much repetition is built into "Teach Your Child to Read", there is always room for more, especially when it can be an engaging activity outside of the book itself.This is the whole reason I created supplementary printables myself.I wanted crafts. I wanted extra hands-on activities, and heck, I even wanted worksheets that showed my child how to write the letters as recommended at the end of each lesson, without having to create the letters myself by hand on a piece of writing paper.So, here I am, with printable packets created and my middle child is ready to begin reading. In fact, she has already completed the first 5 lessons. So, it is time for us to begin my first supplemental phonics packet!
