Includes the following three titles:
Enjoying Art with Children
Blizzard. The author invites children to visually explore and interact with 12 magnificent works of art in various styles featuring children. Students search out details that make art come to life, from the tattered sleeve of a street urchin in Tough Story, to the rosy cheeks of the musicians in Two Girls at a Piano. Discussion questions and artist information add to the experience. Oversize hb, illus.
Home School Family Fitness
Whitney. Written by a Ph.D. professor of physical education who is also a homeschooling father of eight children, this manual on physical education is designed for use by homeschoolers young and old. Dr. Whitney emphasizes the fundamentals of fitness, but then presents fun and effective means for achieving and maintaining fitness through indoor and outdoor games you can—and will want to—do at home with from one to four participants of similar or mixed ages. (How about the games titled Speedy Soccer, Frisbee Football, Deck Tennis, Cops and Robbers, and dozens more?) The book includes 4 weeks' worth of outline lesson plans, easy-to-use and fully explained fitness tests, and thorough explanations of rules and proper techniques and skills for a wide variety of popular sports and worthwhile physical activities. (How about training in correct techniques for walking and running? Rhythm activities, including dance? Basketball free throws? Football punts?) Truly: this is an astonishingly complete guidebook. Wish our PE teachers had been so creative! Oversize pb, lay-flat comb binding, illus.
