"Christmas Carols Sweet and Clear" CD Album

(0)
These Christ-centered carols in a gentle style with classical style accompaniment make a restful but inspirational background for relaxation amidst the Christmas rush. Give your homeschool a holiday touch with Christmas music in the background during schooltime or as a sing-along with your children. Use this CD with our Christmas penmanship book, A Treasury of Christmas Carols to Trace and Color, to teach your children the carols you love and to draw your family together during the holiday season. Joymarie’s trained voice is soothing, rich, and sweet, and is accompanied by James’s and Joshua’s gentle but exhilarating classical-style harmonies on harp, recorder, flute, oboe, and strings, in a style reminiscent of Baroque composers. James sings baritone harmonies in some of the songs, and the children also sing several of the songs with Joymarie. Our music is very relaxing, yet intricate enough to keep revealing new musical secrets each time you listen to it. This CD includes the following tracks: Jingle Bells O Come, O Come, Emmanuel In the Bleak Midwinter Joy to the World Away in a Manger What Child Is This? Little Drummer Boy Of the Father’s Love Begotten It Came Upon the Midnight Clear Once in Royal David’s City Ding Dong Merrily on High Stille Nacht (Silent Night in German) Un Flambeau (Bring a Torch in French) O Holy Night Angels We Have Heard On High Quotes About This Product I really like your music! It’s so beautiful and subdued…I hope you and your family will continue to create beautiful music. P. Alegria I have been very blessed to discover *Christmas Carols Sweet and Clear by the Dunlap family…. Their voices are fresh and inspiring and the songs they have chosen are among some of the most God-honoring out there. This is a great addition to any family’s music collection. It will certainly be a collector’s item at our house. Lynda Coats Author of Far Above Rubies and How Blessed Is the Man

"28 Great Quotes from US Presidents" Cursive Penmanship

(0)
Quotes from past inaugurations and other speeches by US presidents This penmanship book was created to affirm the importance of keeping God, prayer, and the Bible in government. It is a compilation of quotes from US presidential speeches that affirm both the necessity and the wisdom of seeking God’s guidance and providence in government and living by His Word. Students copy the quotes to practice their cursive handwriting. (We suggest copying one quote per week.) This book, which was compiled, created, and illustrated by a highly gifted homeschooled student (now graduated, with her writing published in all 3 of the What Really Happened series of books from Bramley Books) can be used for history, civics, government, handwriting, Bible, and character in your homeschool. The professional handwriting font set used in our penmanship books is used by public schools across the U.S. This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s purchaser. Quotes About This Product The font chosen for this book is easy to copy, which I think sets the student up for a positive experience. Not only is my son seeing an immediate improvement in his writing skills, he is copying hand selected quotes from some of our nations greatest presidents - words chosen because they assert the importance of God’s word while imparting Godly wisdom. This is well done, and the fact that a 12-year-old homeschool student created it is absolutely amazing! Kathy Davis homeschoolbuzz.com

Artistic Valentine Cards

(0)
On Valentine’s Day, emphasize Christian love and unity in your family while making beautiful cards together. This beautiful craft book gives you ideas, instructions, and techniques for creating beautiful Valentine cards (with an emphasis on Christian love in the family, not on romance). The examples in full color are actual cards made by the Dunlap children at ages 5 to 15. However, this book can be used by kids younger than 5 (with stickers) and by older teens and adults (using the techniques shown, in finer detail). In this book we also give you heart, flower, and butterfly pictures in color to glue on your cards, Bible verses on love from 1 John that can be printed, cut out and glued onto your cards, plus, as a bonus, how to make cookie Valentines, how to arrange a dozen roses, and how to encourage your kids to keep on going in creative ways. Did you know that Valentine, the Christian martyr we celebrate, died because he upheld traditional marriage at a time when the king had outlawed marriage and was encouraging immorality? Read the story, so relevant to our current times, in this book. Inspire your kids today to be creative and practice giving by making some of these cards for others. This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s owner.

In addition to sharing ideas for bringing the family closer at Christmas time, we give you easy arts and crafts in 3 different segments, for grades K-12, 48 pages in all. In the first section we give you Victorian Christmas cards and Nativity Christmas cards in color to embellish with star and snowflake stickers, glitter glue, and craft jewels.

These are mixed with ideas for family togetherness, plus 3 hot drink recipes for cold winter days. The second section gives you nativity stained-glass cards to color, art instruction, and the Christmas story from Scripture to go with each nativity card, plus pictures and greetings (mostly with a Christian focus) for kids to paste inside the cards they make. The third section is a mix of artistic endeavors, including ornaments in color to fold, glue and hang, gift labels to color, a wrapping paper sponge stamping craft, Christmas star stained glass designs to color at 5 different age levels, decorated notebooking pages, 3 famous angel paintings with outlines for older kids to color or paint, plus additional angels for kids of any age to color.

"Have a Wonderful Walk!" Cursive Penmanship A-Z

Inspire your kids during copywork time to enjoy a family walk. Through the years as we homeschooled, Joymarie took photos of our kids enjoying family walks and park time for PE. The color photos in this penmanship book span our kids’ ages from toddler to graduating teen, so kids get to see our homeschooled kids at different ages as they copy sentences about the many and varied fun things we did on family walks. This book is both an inspiration to kids to encourage them to enjoy family walks and also an inspiration and guide to parents on how to make family walks and exercise at the park (and in many other settings) enjoyable for the whole family, tots to teens. At the back of the copywork pages is a complete guide covering everything from how to avoid family quarrels and helping kids learn how to treat one another to how to photograph your own kids on family walks. Joymarie covers both the practical aspects, such as bringing along snacks, drinks and jackets, and the spiritual and inspirational side of being close to God, the Creator, on a walk. This beautiful book is an experience in joyfulness that just might change your family life. This is the third book in a series of outdoors penmanship books that also includes A Walk in the Woods, about the beauty of wildlife in a forest setting, and A Backpacker’s Alphabet, about the basics of backpacking for camping enthusiasts and anyone who loves the outdoors. The professional handwriting font set used in our penmanship books is used by public schools across the U.S. This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s purchaser.

This copy book of beautiful, picturesque writing set amidst illustrations of natural beauty will delight kids from 4th grade through 12th. Full of word-picture scenes of the beautiful and interesting things a forest holds. Written by a homeschooling mother and daughter with the goal of giving students ample cursive practice of each letter in the alphabet. On its page each letter is repeated up to 42 times, but in sentences that are sensible yet charming enough kids will gladly do any page twice. Delightful text worth reading aloud as examples of alliteration, with breathtakingly beautiful coloring pages and a special section at the end of illustrated nature craft ideas to try. Here is a sampling of a sentence or 2 from over half of the delightful stories kids get to copy in this book: A - Acorns scattered across the forest floor are destined to become great oak trees… B - Birds bless the forest with their ballads, bringing the beautiful gift of song… C - The chipmunk scampers away, scattering leaves, and cheats the hawk of an afternoon snack… D - …They dine until satisfied. Then the deer detect danger. Suddenly, with a soft drum of hooves, they disappear into the woods… F - A shaft of light filters onto the forest floor through the firs. I find a frilly fern and finger its feathery leaf… L - Lacy leaves seem to laugh as they fall lightly to the forest floor… M At midnight, the mice are awake, meandering amid the many leaves and mosses… N - Blind birdlings rest contentedly in a round nest in a branch high above the ground… O - Old oak trees spread their strong boughs across the forest canopy, groping for light… P - Picture-perfect pines among the peaks line the peaceful pathway… R - The brush by the path rustles, and several rascally raccoons burst forth from amidst the branches… S - In the sunlight glistens a sparkling forest stream… V - Vivid violets quivering in the breeze thrive in their quiet place… W - Wildflowers waving in the wind, whisper in the wilderness. Wisps of yellow petals break off and wander away in the wind… This is the second book in a series of outdoors penmanship books that also includes A Backpacker’s Alphabet, about the basics of backpacking for camping enthusiasts and anyone who loves the outdoors, and Have a Wonderful Walk!, telling how to make family walks exciting and varied.

"Ocean Fish" Art & Nature Unit for Little Kids

(0)
Do you love our Art & Nature Science Units, but have children too young to use them? We are now producing a new series with our Art & Nature Science Units (which are back issues of our colorful magazine for kids that is no longer in production) adapted for smaller children (grades 1-3). Now if you plan to use our Ocean Fish nature unit for a multilevel unit study in your homeschool, you can order our regular version for grades 4-8 and our “Little Kids” version for grades 1-3. That means you can do art (3 or more months worth) with grades 1-8 together, and science with grades 1-6 together. If you just give our nature units to your kids for enjoyment (with or without homeschooling), you can give your 1st through 3rd graders their own version of the Ocean Fish nature unit that they can understand and enjoy in addition to giving our regular Ocean Fish nature unit to your children in grades 4-8. (Our nature units are enjoyable to 1st through 8th graders and suitable in art for 4th grade through beyond 8th grade level.) Because recreating our nature units for younger children takes a lot of work, this is the only Art & Nature Science Unit for which we have produced a “Little Kids” version so far.
