Timberdoodle's eGuide explains which books to use when, and how to schedule your school year. A printable weekly checklist is included to get you up and running in minutes. Just complete this week's work and you're done - no agony over Monday's dental appointment or your family plans over the long weekend. Plus, even from this age you'll be teaching your child independent study skills!


LANGUAGE ARTS

Phonics Pathways is a complete, effective phonics program with a simple layout which leads to steady progress. Phonics Pathways is logically laid out with virtually no teacher preparation involved. In a mere ten to fifteen minutes a day, usually one or two pages, your child will be reading before you know it. By the end of the year, your child will have a comprehensive grasp of phonics, setting him up for literary success.

Phonics Pathways

Language Smarts

It doesn't look like schoolwork, but it is! Featuring rhymes and riddles, editing activities, mind-benders, sequencing, and folk tales, Language Smarts is a core standards-based language arts curriculum with a whole host of child-pleasing activities. Each Language Smarts page is brightly colored with plenty of white space to feel easily doable. Language arts has never looked so fun!


When he is ready, you will begin Daily Traits to introduce him to the basics of writing. The short daily assignments are designed to build skills without overwhelming him. Not ready for writing yet? Don't worry -- put it aside to use over the summer. Not only will he learn beginning writing skills, but he'll also have a summer activity to keep his mind sharp!

Daily 6-Trait Writing

Italic Handwriting B, Grade 1

Known for its beautifully legible appearance and natural flow, Italic Handwriting has been a long-time favorite with our customers. For the beginning reader, Italic Handwriting Book B Grade 1 presents lowercase, capitals and numerals. With a short word and lively sentence on each page, this book is a lot of fun for the student! Illustrated.



Tick Tock I Love Reading Set B

What are we looking for in beginning readers? They must be phonics-based, the storyline needs to be worth the effort, and of course outstanding illustrations that engage a child are a lovely bonus. Our Tick Tock Readers First Grade Set does that and more.


Usborne Big Maze Book, with its fifty unique mazes, will have your child winding his way through to find a safe route for salmon, a hiking trail for the mountaineers, a path for the sheepdog to gather his sheep, and many more. Oversized, bright, and colorful, Big Maze Book allows your child the opportunity to practice basic pencil control in an enjoyable, exciting way. Necessary practice for the legible writing of letters and numbers, Big Maze Book also helps your child acquire the ability to reason, interpret, understand, and concentrate. These elemental skills are some of the bedrock essentials for later academics.

The Usborne Big Maze Book

MATH

We love Math Reasoning, but some children need just a bit more drill work to master math. JUMP Mathematics offers a systematic, precept upon precept math program with simple, uncluttered pages. JUMP Mathematics is mastery-oriented, clear, and to the point.

JUMP at Home - Grade 1

Mathematical Reasoning B Grade 1

Math doesn't need to be tedious, and Mathematical Reasoning proves that with its bright pages, interesting story problems, and critical-thinking-based approach. Concepts spiral gradually, so that children do not forget as they go, and are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.


Cuisenaire Rods and Rod Track

It is hard to beat Cuisenaire Rods as a manipulative. Used for demonstrating everything from simple addition and subtraction to fractions and area, the introductory set of plastic rods contains seventy-four rods, a tray with a lid, and an activity guide. We also include a handy rod track--a nifty little tool that looks like a 30-centimeter ruler with a 1-centimeter groove down its center. It is particularly helpful for early practice of addition and subtraction.


Wrap-Ups

To help solidify your child's grasp of basic addition and subtraction facts, we include Wrap-Ups Addition and Wrap-Ups Subtraction for hands-on drillwork. Your child simply wraps the string from the problem to the answer, then moves on to the next problem. Once he's completed the board, he can flip it over and check his answers. If the string lines up with the ridges on the back of the board, he's gotten them all correct.


THINKING SKILLS

Thinking skills will be vital to your child's academic success, yet not all first graders thrive on workbooks only. MiniLuk uses sturdy tiles and colorful workbooks, resulting in an engaging, hands-on, game-like way to teach the thinking skills previously only taught with pencil in hand. Your Secular First-Grade Curriculum includes the miniLUK Starter Pack, the Visual Perception Pack 1 and Pack 2, the Critical Thinking Pack, Concentration Pack, Math and Basic Geometry Pack, Theme-based Learning Pack, Advance Visual Perception Pack, Advance Geometry Pack, and Advance Higher Order Thinking Pack 1.

miniLUK Starter Pack

What's New? What's Missing? What's Different?

Children love to learn and love to create. What's New, What's Missing, What's Different? combines those two delights into one sure-to-please workbook for early learners.


Don't leave their brains half-baked! With Smart Cookies your child will be learning to think logically as he devours 64 brain-building puzzles offered up in a yummy cookie format.

Smart Cookies

GEOGRAPHY

Basic geography is essential, but done in large, infrequent doses it can become tedious or, worse yet, too quickly forgotten. Daily Geography uses a short daily lesson approach that avoids both pitfalls.

Daily Geography

This puzzle uses special rugged, curved pieces that assemble into a globe! The 108-Piece Children's World Map Puzzleball is an ideal tool for introducing world geography. This puzzle is bright, colorful, and adorned with animals, so your young student will get a kick out of assembling and reassembling it.

108-Piece Children's World Map Puzzleball

CONSTRUCTION

Plus Plus 1200

Hand your child a couple of pieces and he will intuitively begin to create. Plus Plus' identical, simple shapes with their slight rubbery texture glide smoothly together with very little pressure. And they stay together! Plus Plus pieces grip without slipping and come apart without effort. Plus Plus encourages children to think creatively about color, design, and structure and is a painless way to develop fine-motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Beginners will create flat patterns with Plus Plus, but older children will want to try their hand at the more difficult 3-D structures.


SCIENCE

Interactive Science's bright pages offer a huge variety of lesson styles and activities. Each chapter begins with questions designed to get your young scientist thinking about and predicting answers relating to this month's subject. You'll then find the information essential to the month's studies, all written to the student and laid out in a friendly, non-overwhelming fashion. Just so you know, you will see references in the book to "school-only" features that you don't have access to. They are not essential and, to us, not worth the $350 additional fee. More information about that is on the Interactive Science 1 page here.

HISTORY

The Story of the World Readers
The Story of the World Activity

History is a story -- isn't it time you read it that way? The Story of the World is a captivating read-aloud series which will introduce your children to the marvelous history of the world presented chronologically from the beginning of time. The details of battles, kingdoms, cultures, and customs from every continent and major people group are woven together into a story that children will find mesmerizing. With short chapters, many less than seven pages, The Story of the World presents history in small, easily-digestible chunks. Of particular appeal to children will be the occasional story about a hypothetical child in the culture of that time and fictional stories that were popular during that time. In your Complete Curriculum we include both the reader and the student activity book for Volume 1, covering Ancient Times (5000 BC - 400 AD).


The Story of the World CDs

Featuring the same content as The Story of the World book, this convenient audio book allows you to listen in the car, while fixing dinner, or at any other time when your ears are freer than your hands!


ART

Djeco Birds of Paradise

This fun variation on paint-by-numbers art includes four pre-printed images of exotic birds on glue-covered cards and twelve pots of ready-to-apply colored sand. The perfect balance of bright colors with earth tones ensures art worth displaying. Ingeniously designed to conserve sand, the sturdy Birds of Paradise box has a small hole in one corner, allowing you to shake in leftover sand and pour it back into the sand containers.


Draw your own wild adventure with My Big Sketchy Doodle Book: In the Jungle. Encourage your child's creative side as he colors, draws, solves mazes, and connects dots in this animal-filled book. Lots of variety, lots of fun - perfect for a beginning doodler.

My Big Sketchy Doodle Book

Pattern recognition is an important developmental skill necessary for mathematical cognition and problem-solving. Now your child can become a pattern-making genius using Draw Patterns with Barroux. From simple patterns of filling a face with chicken pox or water patterns around an island, to drawing rays from a roomful of light bulbs or adding suction cups to the octopus's tentacles.

Drawing Patterns with Barroux

STUDY HELPS

Thinking Putty

When one of our children was a preschooler, we received the best advice a parent of a kinesthetic child could receive: Let her wiggle. And wiggle she did. I don't think she sat for schoolwork for many years. Thinking Putty offers your child a way to move without becoming a distraction. An impressive, adult-sized handful of high-quality, moldable putty, the non-toxic, non-gooey Thinking Putty will bounce, stretch, tear, drip, snap, even shatter. Finally, your little wiggler will be able to sit and listen!


Spectrum Test Practice offers a comprehensive and sequential way to practice the content areas offered on numerous standardized tests, plus access to online state-specific test practice. The up-to-date content reflects national standards and includes practice tests in reading, language arts, and math.

Spectrum Test Practice Grade 1
