Refill for 8th Grade Timberdoodle Curriculum 2012

Easy and Convenient Curriculum Refills
Timberdoodle has made it a snap to purchase "refills" of just the consumable items you need when you have a second student using our Curriculum Bundle! You don't need to buy an entire second curriculum, and you don't even need to sift through and figure out what you need, because we've done the work for you.

Save Money Teaching Multiple Children
Our Curriculum Refill includes only the consumable items for this grade level, saving you money when you homeschool twins or when you have a younger student coming up to this grade level the next year. Purchase one complete bundle, then buy only this money-saving Refill for the second student.

Here's what you get in your Eighth Grade Curriculum Refill:

Language Arts and Reading
Most children dread grammar study because it is too complex. But Easy Grammar Ultimate Grade 8 is just that, easy. By deleting and marking certain words or phases, Easy Grammar Ultimate Grade 8 employs a virtually "hands-on" approach. This very logical, simple, no-nonsense grammar program is easy to use because each lesson focuses on just one topic. Lots of review helps to ensure comprehensive learning with excellent results. Best of all? The lessons are very manageable, often taking as little as 10 minutes to complete! The Eighth Grade Curriculum Refill includes the Student Workbook only.

Sequential Spelling is not only the most logical spelling program we've seen, but it is also one of the easiest to use. Simply read your child one list of words a day to write down, correcting any mistakes as you go. That's it! The sequences are based on building from easy words to advanced words, such as from all, to tall, stall, install, installment, and installation; this is an intuitive approach with no memorization required. The Sequential Spelling Student Workbook only is included in the Eighth Grade Curriculum Refill. If your student has not yet completed Sequential Spelling books 1-6, you will want to do them first.

Editor-in-Chief B2 provides your student with a mock newspaper article and photo. Interesting and often entertaining, the stories suffer from multiple problems which the child must correct; this is a fascinating way to review grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and attention to detail.

Everyone agrees that children who have a solid grasp of word roots are bound to be children with better spelling and reading comprehension skills, primarily because they have acquired the ability to decode words. But how do you teach Latin and Greek roots? Well, we knew we didn't want something too dull, too schoolish, too intense, or based too heavily on mythology. We also knew that moms are busy enough without another teacher-intensive topic to worry about. With those objectives clarified, it was easy to see that Word Roots B1 is perfect, with its self-teaching, simple, and engaging approach. We've not seen any word roots program more effortless than this one!

While we believe reading is the single most important skill your student will need, you'll notice that we did not include any traditional readers. Don't let this puzzle you. Our experience is that the best way to help your child become an eager reader is to constantly supply him with reading materials that interest him. Future doctors may want to read up on anatomy, young explorers are drawn to the escapades of adventurers young and old, and the baby-lover in your family will be captivated by adoption stories. Assign reading if you must, but encourage it at all costs; a child who enjoys reading will find it easier to excel in every area.
The Mystery of History Volume II
The Mystery of History Volume II
Written by homeschool mom Linda Hobar, this is one spectacular masterpiece. Not just a textbook, it is brimming with multi-age activities, book and video lists, memory helps, and timeline suggestions. Written in a conversational style, what appeals to us most about this program is its worldwide approach to history.

The Mystery of History Volume II provides a historically-accurate, Bible-centered approach to learning about the Early Church and the Middle Ages from Pentecost to the printing press! The completely chronological lessons span the continents to shed new light on who walked the earth when God revealed Himself to mankind during this pivotal period of history. The user-friendly format presents three lessons per week, with hands-on activities, quizzes, tests, weekly timeline, mapping assignments, and a supplemental reading and resource list.

You already have the book, so for your convenience we include only the Mystery of History Vol 2 Reproducibles CD with your curriculum refill. This CD provides all pre-tests, post-tests, quarterly worksheets and semester tests, plus individual maps and most appendices for Mystery of History Volume 2.
Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra
Finally, a math text designed for homeschoolers! Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra's friendly text and often humorous line drawings are specifically intended for independent learners and contain far more explanation than any other math program on the market. Because the Teaching Textbooks series was designed for homeschoolers studying independently, it uses far less irrelevant jargon than other textbooks, while still retaining all the terms that students need to know for those important standardized tests.

What ultimately sold me on this program are their computer CDs with down-to-earth, step-by-step multimedia solutions for every problem in the book, plus an additional CD-ROM with complete, step-by-step solutions for every test problem. The lectures -- one for each lesson in the textbook -- provide hours of instruction. They cover the same material as the written lessons in the textbook, but many students prefer to listen to (and watch) an explanation for each lesson rather than read it out of a book. Field-tested with outstanding results, this is a brilliant idea, long overdue and skillfully done, with many hours of instruction. Enjoyable, efficient, and effective; what more could you want from a math program?

For those of you continuing on from Teaching Textbooks Math 7, you'll want to know that its computer-based format shifts a bit this year. You'll find that your student works out of the textbook now, going to the computer for lectures and solutions. It is just as self-teaching as ever, so you should still find yourself doing little more than giving assignments and watching his progress! Since your math CDs are reusable, we include only the consumable workbook and answer booklet with the Curriculum Refill pack.
National Geographic Elements of Science
National Geographic Elements of Science
Science this year is focused on reviewing all essential and general scientific concepts before proceeding to high school science. The more-than-100 kid-friendly experiments in National Geographic Elements of Science explore the full spectrum of biology, chemistry, and physics and will show your children hands-on how these three core disciplines relate. The engaging, full-color, 112-page book, with its helpful, clear illustrations and well-written text, is organized into fifteen chapters that include investigations into Bernoulli's Principle, centrifugal force, rockets, electric motors, simple circuits, chemical reactions, camera obscura, prisms, the human body, and much more!
Many of you are required by your state to test your child yearly. Spectrum Test Prep gives you a way to prepare for that in a no-stress manner. Includes actual test questions, tips on test preparation, strategies and techniques for answering different kinds of questions, and full-length practice tests.
