Timberdoodle's Scheduling Helps Guide

This guide helps you to know which books to use when and how to schedule your school year. A weekly schedule is included to give you enough structure to make sure your child doesn't miss anything, without the stress of an overly specific plan that leaves no room for the give and take of real life.

See samples in the pictures above.

Most children dread grammar study because it is too complex. But Easy Grammar is just that--easy. By deleting and marking certain words or phrases, Easy Grammar Grade 6 employs a virtually "hands-on" approach. The vocabulary has been kept simple and, in most cases, the sentences are rather short. 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.

Easy Grammar

Wordsmith Apprentice

From firefighting to law-making, an ability to write clearly will serve your child for the rest of his life. Wordsmith Apprentice has all the practicality, humor, and fun of the original Wordsmith book included in seventh grade, but this one is written specifically for this age-group. It's an easy-to-use introductory writing course that encourages students to develop their writing skills as they participate in every role on a newspaper staff: editor, reporter, writer, etc. Children develop a love for writing as they express themselves through sentence and paragraph writing, persuasive writing, and much more.

The most priceless commodity a homeschool mom has is time, and the longer she teaches, the more frugal she becomes with how her time is spent. While we love Sequential Spelling's scope and sequence, and find it is one of the most labor-prudent programs available, it still requires parental time to implement. Multiply that time by however many levels you are teaching, and it is no wonder that for many families the use of Sequential Spelling, or any spelling program for that matter, fizzles out by mid-year. Now it doesn't have to.

Teaching Textbooks Math 6

This year, your child will continue with our favorite math program ever. Teaching Textbooks Math 6 is a full-year curriculum designed to be completed on the computer. The friendly lessons and automatic grading mean that this program will be a blessing to both you and your child! (Not sure if this is the correct level to start your child in? Have him take this free placement test and make sure.)

From brainteasers and logic puzzles to mazes, Venn diagrams, and secret codes, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities has a wealth of mind-boggling activities that your child will enjoy. Exercises include thinking fluency, originality, generalizing, patterning, and problem-solving. Every lesson is based on grade-appropriate themes and is correlated to state standards. Just as important, the presentation is appealing, and many students will find that thinking skills are the highlight of their schoolwork.

Critical & Creative Thinking Activities

Daily Geography Grade 6

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.

Doodle Your Day introduces your child to microjournaling, or journaling in small bits. With 365 doodle and journaling prompts for your young artist, Doodle Your Day makes microjournaling easy. From drawing today's weather to sketching what made him laugh on International Moment of Laughter Day, your child will love exploring his imagination with such an immense variety of topics. This is an easy, appealing way to expand your child's creative juices.

Doodle Your Day

(also includes everything in Basic Package)
Timberdoodle's Complete Curriculum Kits include everything listed above plus science, history, brain games, a reader, and additional hands-on tools to add sparkle to your learning time.

Pathway Reader Sixth Grade

Designed to be used in Amish classrooms, these basal readers are solidly wholesome, with none of the fantasy that is commonplace in both Christian and secular readers. Because the Amish don't use electricity, you won't find stories dealing with the latest in films, computers, or TVs. Instead, the stories are centered on farm life, with horse auctions, harvests, and LARGE families. With simple typesetting and a few black-and-white sketches, these hardback books are not splashy, but are lovely in their simplicity.

One note: While we believe that reading is the single most important skill to foster in your sixth-grader, you'll notice that we did not include many 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.

Being a competent typist gives children greater job flexibility and allows them to be more productive, so if you are looking for the best typing program available for your family, look no further. We spent countless hours evaluating the competition, but everything else we tried was juvenile, stressful, violent, or just plain dumb.

Typing Instructor Platinum offers a variety of typing plans that can be tailored to your skill level and preferences, including a typing plan just for children. Typing Instructor Platinum Version 21 is the easiest method to teach this vital skill. (NOTE: MAC version is also available and can be substituted upon request).

Brain Fitness Solitaire Chess

Fast-paced Brain Fitness Solitaire Chess will exercise your child's critical-thinking, spatial, analytical, and decision-making skills, while at the same time sharpening his chess skills. Using only traditional chess moves, he must eliminate all of the pieces from the game board except one. This logic game, based on the rules of chess, will not only help your child learn the game, but also greatly improve his ability to "think chess."

Using eighteen sturdy, precisely-cut, solid plastic blocks, your child builds the structures illustrated. Each successive structure is more complex to build and more difficult to balance, requiring the use of fine-motor skills, creativity, and perseverance. (As an educational bonus, while accomplishing these tasks, your child will subconsciously be experimenting with basic concepts of geometry and balance.) As he works through the exercises, which become increasingly difficult, your child will be given additional views of the illustration for help and clarity. If this doesn't give your child a profound understanding of perspective, depth, and geometric forms, then I don't know what will.

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology
Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Notebooking Journal

A colorful, conversational approach to science, Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology is also very easy to teach. This program uses a notebook-based approach, meaning that as you go through the course your child will be asked to write, draw, or dictate the results of his experiments into a notebook. Not only will this help him retain what he learns, but at the end of the year you will have a lovely record of his work! The hands-on experiments sprinkled throughout the book are sure to be a highlight for both of you. Your Complete Curriculum includes the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology hardbound textbook and a Notebooking Journal. One note: Don't feel you need to fill in every spot in the notebook; pick and choose what your time and your child's interest allows!

A good civics course will teach your child about how laws are made, enforced, modified, and amended, and about his rights and duties as a citizen. A great civics course goes even further. Uncle Sam and You not only covers the basics but also delves into national symbols, international relations, national security, national holidays, and much, much more. Replete with images, the text highlights both modern and historical photographs and illustrations. Bundle includes text; answer key; and The Citizen's Handbook, a diverse collection of speeches, historical writings, and more.

Uncle Sam and You Bundle

The Search and A Family Secret

This pair of graphic novels explores the impact of the German occupation and the Holocaust on Dutch and Jewish families during WWII. From the innocent to the heroic resistance fighters, and from the passive bystanders to the brutal Nazis, A Family Secret communicates some of the most perplexing and disturbing events in Dutch history, from a "safe" Dutch girl's perspective. The story and characters from A Family Secret are intertwined and expanded upon in The Search, in which a Jewish grandmother recounts to her grandson how she escaped from the Nazis. With her grandson's help she plunges into a search to discover what happened to the rest of her family during their last months at Auschwitz. The Search is a compilation of many stories of Jewish families who experienced the horror of the Holocaust.

This is one of our favorite product lines; it does such an excellent job of teaching a very necessary skill. Complete-A-Sketch Advanced has taken what has been excellent and raised it to a higher level.

Complete-A-Sketch Advanced CD

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.

Gourmet Scented Pencil

Smencils (Scented Pencils) are made from 100% recycled newspapers; you can even see the layers of recycled newspaper when you sharpen them! Individually packed in their own freshness tubes (made of corn-based biodegradable plastic), guaranteed to keep the delicious aromas fresh for two years. (One Smencil included with each Complete Curriculum).

(also includes everything in Basic and Complete Packages)
Our Elite Curriculum Kits include all of the materials listed above along with even more bells and whistles such as art, additional construction challenges, dot-to-dots, and even a 3-D Torso Puzzle!

3-D Torso Puzzle

It was this 3-D Torso Puzzle that was the beginning of our addiction to these collectible-quality puzzles. While a mere thirty-two pieces, it was challenging for the entire family and remains one of our favorites today. There are many torso models currently on the market, but none are as demanding. The finely-detailed sculpturing with hand-painted parts ensures that this puzzle is up to medical-school quality. Not quite five inches tall when assembled, so fine-motor skills are a must. Not only will the hands-on element provide a welcome change of pace for your student, but physically assembling the puzzle will also help your student visualize and remember how parts fit together. For those who want to know, a bladder is depicted, but there are no gender-related details.

Unlike conventional dot-to-dot puzzles that reveal too much of the picture and ruin the mystery, the Extreme Dot-to-Dot puzzles are intricate and so challenging that when your child looks at a page, he will have no idea what the result will be. And you're not only reinforcing numbers and number order - these are each effective brainteasers and even many an adult has found these books both provoking and relaxing! This will be a treat for sluggish minds or weary bodies, a perfect way to start a slow-moving school day.

Extreme Dot-to-Dots - USA

Uncle Sam and You Workbook

Crosswords, find-a-words, matching, drawing assignments, and other handwork activities in the Uncle Sam and You Student Workbook review and reinforce information learned in the daily lessons. Unit tests are also included.

Wow, a geography puzzle with history built in! The 4-D Cityscape USA History Over Time Puzzle is a unique 4-D puzzle that enables you to incorporate the fourth dimension of time as you piece together the growth of the USA. The first layer of the USA History Over Time Puzzle is made up of 806 cardboard pieces and details the territorial expansions that occurred from 1783 to the 1900s. The second layer is sixty-five pieces of dense foam, including mountain layers, that are assembled on top of the territorial expansions. This layer presents the United States as we currently know them. Finally, and probably a universal favorite, is placing USA History Over Time Puzzle's ninety-three 3-D historical buildings and monuments into the foam base. Fun, challenging, educational, and memorable, the USA History Over Time Puzzle allows your entire family to see the defining moments in USA history unfolding before their very eyes!
