Beach Math for Preschoolers is a colorful first counting book with beautiful ocean scenes for kids to count colorful coral reef fish, playful dolphins, inquisitive sea birds, and delightful seashells. As children learn each new number, they can use the accompanying worksheets designed for preschool children, even those whose hands are not ready to write. Highly gifted 3-year-olds, early 4’s, and normal 5- to 6-year-olds who are about to start First Grade will all enjoy this book. There are 4 to 6 colorful counting pages for each number (1-10), followed by a coloring page with large numbers to trace, or if the child isn’t ready to trace numbers he or she can color a bush shaped like the correct number. The worksheets that follow include more than one number bush. The child counts the beach creatures and then colors the bush that shows the correct number. Dotted numbers are also available in very large print on each worksheet for practice. Starting with the number 6, there are fewer bushes to color and more numerals to trace and circle, plus several rows of animals to count, with 3 or more numbers to choose between. Kids circle the numeral that goes with the number they counted on each row. This book is the first in a series of colorful preschool books created by Joymarie, with black and white and low-toner-volume worksheets to print out to go with the colorful talk-about activity pages to do with your preschool child on-screen.

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. (You can take or leave any step you choose in embellishing the cards. Be as frugal or creative as you choose.) 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. So much to choose from! But the best part is that you can reuse this book as many times as you like within the same household, year after year. This book will be a blessing to your family! You can also purchase our Christmas music CD, Christmas Carols, Sweet and Clear (available in our store) for your children to listen to while they do the artwork on these pages, and a Christmas handwriting practice book, A Treasury of Christmas Carols to Trace and Color (in both cursive and manuscript to trace–also available in manuscript only).

"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.

"Ocean Fish" Art & Nature Unit for Little Kids

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.

Come visit the fascinating world of lovable Sea Mammals in this Art & Nature-Science Unit. It contains 76 pages of delightful pictures, poems, articles, and art lessons about dolphins, porpoises, whales, and seals—from the up-to-110 foot blue whale that can hold an entire football team on its tongue, to the cute little 5 foot long ringed seal that can dive down 1,640 feet deep. We have included fun tables for your kids to compare the sizes of whales, speeds and leap heights of dolphins, and deep diving records of seals. Your kids will read about dolphin intelligence, whale watching, and our editor’s experiences petting a baby killer whale. They will learn about pinnipeds and cetaceans, including deep ocean cachalot whales, singing humpback whales and a man who composes cello music to go with their songs, delightful white beluga whales, and even a little whale with a long horn reminiscent of unicorns! They will learn about 3-ton (6,000-pound) elephant seals, trick-performing sea lions, cute little furry harp seals, and walruses feeling their way around in the dark depths of the Arctic Ocean, eating over 6,000 mollusks from the ocean bottom each day. How are they able to dive down so far and stay down so long without running out of breath? At each turn we share with your kids the understanding that these incredible feats of nature can only happen through design by an intelligent Creator, God. In this issue we have included more than 20 coloring pages, beautifully done, in most cases with our colored picture examples for your kids to learn from. They will definitely improve their art abilities as they learn about color gradations, as the light aqua water at the ocean’s surface fades gradually into darker shades of turquoise and darker and darker blues. We show them how to portray the ocean’s sunshine surface as a sea mammal looks upward from beneath the water. And they’ll learn about reflecting sunset skies in the water, too. This issue contains more than a dozen paintings of the sea (including sailboats) by famous artists for your kids to enjoy, discuss, and in some cases seek to replicate, in order to learn the simple art principles that they convey. We feature artist Winslow Homer and discuss how he creates cheerful or anxious moods depending on the colors he uses. And we share our own family drawings of dugongs, beluga whales and seals (drawn by our kids at ages 13 and 15). Best of all, we give you an exciting 2-page article about archaeological discoveries that may confirm the crossing of the Red Sea by Moses and the Children of Israel by God’s incredible miracles. So get ready to be inspired! Download and get started on your Art & Nature-Science Unit on Sea Mammals today!

Through careful use of the books in this series, you can even help your children keep these Bible passages in their hearts, entrusted to their memory. “Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee.” (One way to do this is to have them do the same copy page several days in a row, while saying the verse together as a family to learn it by heart.) It is so vitally important for our children to know the Bible and its teachings. This book presents children with verses selected from the Psalms (along with Proverbs and 2 of the Old Testament prophets) that show how God is a stronghold to those who trust in Him. Copying these verses and then coloring the pictures, including scenes of castles and stained-glass window patterns, makes Scripture copywork a beautiful experience. Some of the verses to copy come with a question or 2 to answer to help your children focus on the meaning of what they have just copied. Make copying and learning Bible verses a delightful experience for your child! 43 usable pages 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.
