Hewitt Homeschooling Lightning Literature and Composition **Review** 8th grade

lightninglitandcompreview

I am so excited to be given the opportunity to review Hewitt Homeschooling Lightning Literature and Composition for 8th grade  and share this wonderful curriculum with all my super readers and friends. My son is an advanced 7th grade student in math and science, but choosing literature coursework has always been hard for me. I need a literature curriculum that will keep his attention, give him the tools he needs and to be excited about a subject that he has always been afraid of. I found a literature course he loves with Lightning Literature and Composition through Hewitt Homeschooling.

We were given 3 items to review through Hewitt Homeschooling.

Lightning Literature and Composition 8th Grade Teacher’s Guide

Lightning Literature and Composition 8th Grade Student’s Guide

Lightning Literature and Composition 8th Grade Workbook

Teacher’s Guide

Before I started teaching Lightning Literature I read the introduction as well as the first three chapters of the teacher’s guide. In the past I have been scared of some literature course work, I have felt as a homeschooling mom that I have to do most of the work in educating 5 children it can be a lot to prepare for, too much to read. Hewitt Homeschooling does the work for you in the teacher’s guide they take the guess-work out of the course and there is not a lot of work for mom (hours and hours) to prepare. It took me about 30 minutes to read through and know what items I needed to teach. Knowing my son’s learning type I knew what items or areas he was going to need help with.

Hewitt Homeschooling Lightning Lit teacher’s guide breaks the student guide down for you easily explaining how to use it step by step as the educator, I love the options they give you as well as the ideas for how to teach. Hewitt understands that all children are unique in their learning. I will be applying their concepts in other areas of my teaching as well.

Vocabulary List- We choose words that I wanted my son to learn from the vocab list and created our own vocabulary lesson from those. I loved how I was able to give my son OPTIONS! Just what my son needs in his learning. AWESOME!

Comprehension Questions- My son struggles with really comprehending the text in other literature courses however he was really able to understand Lightning Literature. That was do to the books that they picked for this course as well as the questions they asked. Wording the questions so my son was able to understand. I loved the books they picked for the 8th grade course. For the first six weeks we purchased Stories and Poems for Extremely Intelligent Children of All Ages by Harold Bloom as well as Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. In the teacher’s guide they give you 2 different ways to approach the comp questions depending on your students level that they are currently reading! LOVE IT (do a dance) I love that Lightning Literature has taken the student and molded Literature coursework around them! My favorite as a homeschooling mom!

The teacher’s guide also gives you the educator the tools to help your student with the Literary Lessons as well as the Mini-Lessons. The literary lessons are my favorite in this writing course. The teacher’s guide gives you suggestions on how to further help your student with the Literary Lessons. Although the text does state that if your student masters the lesson you might not need to use the suggestions I found them so helpful even if my son Einstein understood he decided to do everything to go with that chapter! WOW

The Teacher’s Guide for Lightning Literature is a must have. YES you can do the Literature Writing Curriculum without it however I found this book so helpful in the knowledge, understanding and strength that it gave me to teach this wonderful writing program! I do recommend the teacher’s guide when purchasing this course.

Student’s Guide

hewitthomeschoolingreview

I LOVE LOVE the Student Guide it is my favorite literature and comprehension homeschool course so far.  My daughter, Curie will be completing Lightning Lit and Comp this year for 7th grade. Why I love the student’s guide was how they laid out the lesson work for my son, simple, educational and fun!

We did all the chapters in order starting with chapter 1: “A Crazy Tale” by G.K. Chesterton. My son and I started our day early when his brain is always thinking at its best. I try to start with subjects that he finds a little harder to understand giving him one on one with mom. Once we completed the first chapter together he took off in this literature and comprehension course. Hewitt Homeschooling makes it structured with fun through the books, questions and lessons.

The lessons are structured to go in order, however you can change things around and do the course work for writing and vocab to fit your students needs. Also I do feel you can start on the book that you want too and not start on the first chapter if you wanted to start on Treasure Island and feel your student would like that this course is a great fit for your needs. I love the versatility that Hewitt gives your student.

How we worked the course

  • Read the Introduction of the Chapter (so helpful)
  • Vocab (I went over the vocab and made the list of words and lesson from some not all the vocab had my son define each word, then worked on the vocab lesson I made from there)
  • Comprehensive Questions (I followed the guideline for students that have a harder time understanding comprehension)
  • Read the Literary Lesson and Mini-Lesson
  • Completed the Workbook pages
  • Games (these are optional however my son loved them and I recommend them, examples are crosswords and word search which helps with the vocab also gives your child a break)
  • Extra Challenge Pages (these are optional as well however helpful for a student who needs help in literature)
  • Writing Exercises- (at least one per-chapter, I wanted to do more as long as my son Einstein wanted too, so helpful to myself and him)

Workbook

Lightning Literature and Comprehension Workbook offers your student so many benefits from explaining the author’s purpose, writing with a purpose, games for understanding the chapter and having fun. I personally love the taking notes in the first chapter. Einstein my son needs the practice and this is a great tool that I cannot find in other writing curriculums. Your student will get to know the story really  comprehending with analyzing, rewriting, identifying without getting bored along the way! When a student smiles like my son and is ready to start his day with Hewitt I am ready as a mom to teach!

Overall

Hewitt Homeschooling Review

I highly recommend Hewitt Homeschooling Lightning Literature and Comprehension to all my readers, home-education families or a family that wants their son/daughter to have a great understanding of literature. Although my son Einstein is in the 7th grade we picked 8th grade Literature though Hewitt Homeschooling to fit his needs as a student. Depending on your child’s reading level I would recommend this product for ages 12-15 grade level 7th – 9th. We are a family on a budget with 5 to homeschool this year, the price points of Hewitt fit us as a family

Price:

Lightning Literature and Comp 8th grade

  • Student Guide 25.00
  • Teacher’s Guide 20.00
  • Workbook 25.00
  • All the books featured in this review stated above are softcover, bound and great quality for students.

You can purchase the books that go with the course if chose or without the books (the course books are easy to find at the library, bookstore or purchase them with your course) whatever fits your families needs. We chose to purchase Stories and Poems by Harold Bloom because not only does the first book go with the 8th grade writing course but also the 7th grade so this option was best for my daughter who will be completing 7th grade work this year in literature. I love how the course work is laid out for me as a parent, there is a week by week schedule inside the teacher’s guide that I found so helpful. My son lit up every time Literature/Writing time was here. Einstein has found his love of literature through Hewitt Homeschooling Lightning course and I am so happy as a mom. An area I use to dread has now become not only his favorite but mine as well.

Jane Austen Dreams! Sharing the love of Jane…

JaneAustenDreamsI have been a Jane Austen Fanatic since I was in my early 20’s and so now that I am in my early 30’s it has always been a dream of mine to have my daughters love Jane as much I do. I never wanted to push that love of Jane Austen to my daughters I just thought it would come. I have friends that daughters cannot stand Pride and Prejudice or anything regency, my heart races every time they say so.

To my surprise I was in the library with my children my oldest daughter almost 11, discovered Pride and Prejudice the Classic Illustrated version for children. Immediately she wanted to check it out, I was wishing and hoping she would love it. Oh and then my Jane Austen Dreams came true she loved it! Not only did she love it but she went on to read the adult/young adult book that I have on my shelf, my daughter asked to watch the movie. I have the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice we made a day of it, we only have 1 TV so I brought it out and we watched it in my room cuddled up with blankets, herbal tea and wonderful vegan popcorn! YES it was great then one by one my other children entered the room. First our youngest daughter 4, then all the boys, yes you read that right all our boys!

My daughter and I call ourselves Pride and Prejudice buddies. I gave her a matching locket after she was done reading her first Jane Austen book. The locket has a Jane Austen quote on it, I placed a picture of myself in her locket in my locket is a picture of her!

I have even found her and my youngest daughter playing Pride and Prejudice with their dolls! So I thought what a better birthday present than to take her to the play Sense and Sensibility. In our town we have a wonderful performance in August! It is a surprise as my children don’t get things this pricey usually on their birthday, however I got the cost of the tickets for 32 dollars each which is not over the top for just the 2 of us attending.

I believe that Jane Austen for young girls can teach them so much, romance has been lost in our world today with so many. Where else can you read a book about a couple that falls in love with no physical venture, a book where modesty is alive and well, a book were the lead character is strong and still gets a man who adores her! Thank you Jane for coming into my life and I get to share that love with my daughter!

My Jane Austen Dreams have come true……And so have my Daughter’s!

Red, White and Blue by Debbie Clement! **Book with Amazing Music**

 

debbieclement

A few weeks ago I won these awesome books by Debbie Clement a set of 3 of them all hardback and signed by her, Red, White and Blue was one of them. I was super excited however in all the busyness of moving I packed all the books and then we moved. Just today I finished with the last box and our 4-year-old brought me the books and asked me what these were. A perfect time to open them up and see myself as well. I am so sorry I packed these away with the other books. Red, White and Blue is more than just another book inside are wonderful pictures that are so neat along with a beautiful C.D.

After we played the music once we played it again and again and loved it. The book is a follow along to the music which made my 4 and 7-year-old so happy! The lyrics are not hard at all for children to pick up, so upbeat and beautifully sung! Red, White and Blue is a song about our country and what better month to read and sing along than July even though we missed doing this for the 4th I was not sorry. I am a  veteran and love patriotic songs as well as books for our family!

What I loved the most is the C.D. first you have a track with the lyrics so you can sing along, once your child learns the song. The second track if for singing it without the words! We didn’t just sit there and learn the song and sing either I decided what better music than to get out the parachute and start great Red, White and Blue activities.

redwhiteandbluereview

We have a total of 3 books this kept us going with different activities, although all my children loved these books and C.D’s I would recommend them for children ages 2-7 great age range to get them involved in music early you could even introduce them earlier to your children that would be great! I am a HUGE fan of these books with CD’s as I won them I had to look up the price.  All the books that we have Tall Giraffe, You’re Wonderful and Red, White and Blue are available the hardback book with CD for 19.95 which is a great price for all of these books. We could not pick a favorite they are all extra special. The illustrations are different than other books I have seen and stand out. The books are good quality as well, with pages that are durable for little ones. The price is set great and worth every penny!  I feel blessed for winning these awesome books and songs and wanted to share them with our readers.

Debbie Clement sells all of her wonderful products on her site Rainbows Within Reach

Music is a wonderful thing having a positive upbeat book to make your children love music is priceless, my children could not stop smiling! I also have a child with autism, I highly recommend music for special needs children! Amazing

Rating 5 out of 5 Stars- Loved Red, White and Blue Book with Amazing Music as a family!

Using Social Media Wisely!

social media post

Social Media, the plain definition of social media is websites and applications that enables users to create and share content or to participate in social networking.

Social Media is a great thing it allows me to share my thoughts here on my site or give a suggestion to a ‘friend’ on Goodreads for a great book I just read. I use social media all the time, Pinterest is a great way for our family to get resources for homeschooling not to mention the wonderful mothers, friends and fellow bloggers that I have met on social media. I do not use all the social media sites myself, I have this site where I share my thoughts on books, homeschooling with other families and so much more. Then I have Pinterest and Twitter, nothing else I limit myself to how many things I am on, just to the ones I like.

Using social media can boost your site, get your thoughts out there and give great resources to others that we might not otherwise know about, it can also cause a lot of trouble as well. The key is to know how to use it wisely as a lot of people do not. Social Media is not a personal agenda item to be OK to attack another or say something you might not say to one in person. More and more I see people using social media to hurt others, things to think about when using social media

  • The more personal you get the more you put out there in what I like to say the invisible land. So if you want to be personal go ahead but be careful because although social media is good, it can be harmful as well. Think about what you are saying before you say it. If you disagree that is ok just do it in a tasteful manner.
  • Why are you using it? If you are tweeting something think about why you are tweeting that, I tweet to promote my blog, authors, great giveaways or other positive things that I am passionate about. If you are passionate about something that is great, just think about  how you are stating something.
  • Is there a purpose, if you want to get something out there that is fine, who am I to judge but remember not everything you read on the internet “invisible land” is true. So before you assume and share make sure you know it to be true if it is something serious. Throwing stones behind your computer screen is not nice.

To myself social media is something that is good in my life, others can make it harmful. Using it wisely can be good, think about your privacy settings as well are you wanting to share something with close friends or the entire world.

I am not bashing social media but I see a lot of hate go on and I always think about it before pushing the button to tweet, or make that comment how the person on the other line will feel.  If social media was used in a good way and we don’t hide behind our computers to use words of HATE to others or bash people we would see less anger in the world.

You can either use social media wisely or not it is up to you. However what you put out on the computer can never be erased, so think about how others might view you before you do it. Using these wonderful resources for good!

The Blender Girl by Tess Masters (100 gluten-free, vegan recipes)**Review**

18209512

Published April 2014

224 Pages

Purchase your copy on Amazon

This is more than just a recipe book, I was so excited to start reading. I am gluten-free and slowly becoming a vegan. Myself and my daughter have Celiac Disease which means for us we have to be gluten-free for the rest of our life and this is a health choice as well as a life one. As a personal choice I omitted meat and slowly taken away dairy from our diet. Being vegan takes commitment that I know I have and The Blender Girl gave me some wonderful advice and delicious recipes!

The Blender Girl has many useful items when making these snacks, treats or meals (Not just all Blended)

  • Picking a Blender to fit your needs – I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a blender so I love how author Masters gives you the low down on each blender.
  • Using a Blender- This even helped me with the care of my food processor
  • Blend in Ideas- Oh this is great for the newbie giving you foods that are rich in probiotic, immunity boosting and more to belnd in for your BEST health
  • SuperFood Knowledge
  • Sprouting and Soaking Chart- For nuts and seeds, I needed this chart and am so thankful for it! If you want to get the taste and health benefits SOAKING IS BEST!
  • PH, Different Salts and Natural Sweeteners – So much great information

Some may just glance at the cover and think just a book on smoothies and green drinks however The Blender Girl is so much more in addition to wonderful drinks ranging in tastes and textures there are recipes for the vegan gluten-free lifestyle that your family will love our favorite recipe as a family was the Fresh Spring Rolls with Orange Almond Sauce. These spring rolls were packed with flavor and so cooling for the summer heat! Another favorite was all but Instant Raspberry Jam my children loved and who would have thought adding Chia Seeds to a jam! I made this for my family and they loved it. This jam was so quick to leave our table! YUMMMY!

“Another book about gluten-free vegan cookbook must be pricey ingredients being so healthy.” That was a comment I heard recently when I recommended this book, think twice The Blender Girl is for those on a budget as well. Being a mother of 5 children 3 of which are growing boys and a husband, my budget is not very big and I found most of the recipes we have tried being from the smoothie section or the snack and meals were economical in price. Being healthy does not mean being expensive, think about the cost of meat and then cut that meat out of your meal.

The taste is great I highly recommend The Blender Girl by Tess Masters she is a fresh new healthy master of culinary bringing her inspirations right  into your own kitchen!

My Personal Favorites from The Blender Girl

  • Chock-Full Chocolate Surprise – smoothie
  • Asian Arugula – Salad
  • Mushroom Magic- Soup
  • Beat-The -Cold -And-Flu-Blues (loved this one I was sick recently and this got me back on my feet)

If you are looking for something fresh and new in your kitchen this is the cookbook for you!

Rating 5 out of 5 Stars-So refreshing, just hoping I can go 100 percent vegan as I love the deer beef jerky!

Our Loving Cat!

017

We have 2 cats one named Max and the other Salem our children named them after Max the Beast the character in the book Where The Wild Things Are and Sabrina the Teenage Witches cat Salem. They are brothers and both 2 years old. We have tried the dog thing and with our oldest having autism cats just fit our family and noise in our home. Our little grey cat Max started not eating about a month ago and we took him to the vet, that vet said he was just constipated and needed to give him water. OK easy right well the emotional roller coaster went on, he continued to loss weight and be sick just not being himself.

Max is not just a cat to us he is part of our family. So after much stress and about a month of trying to figure a problem he has a major infection in his liver we found out today through a wonderful doctor. He received an injection we have to give him medicine for the next week. He was so tired after the doctors today, he also had blood work and a cancer test as well as an IV. I was glad to know that this is curable and little Max will be feeling better soon.

We came home with a smile on our face and then Max came out of the cat carrier and  was limping not using his left leg, I am hoping it is just the Lidocaine injection that he was given but I started to cry which made my daughter cry. How overwhelming this last month has been, I am praying for our little Max we need him to drink water, eat and stop losing weight.

I never thought an animal would take a place in my heart and I have 2 that are extra special to my family that take up a place in all our hearts! Prayers for Max we need him to get better. I saw a sign in the vet’s office that said, When you are at the end of your Rope, Tie a Knot and Hang On! I am trying so hard. Being a former nurse we are trained to hide emotion well but when it comes to my family it is so hard for me to do that.

Max is a loving cat and so is his brother Salem who knew this dog lover could be such a cat lover! Just wanted to share my thoughts….

**FREEDOM** Happy Birthday America!

Happy Birthday America! I am proud to be an American there are so many things to be thankful as an American, mostly I am thankful for my FREEDOM! America is founded on many values that uphold are nation. Recently I have become concerned for my children in which direction our country is going, I pray that the values and beliefs that the United States of America were founded on never fail that is what makes our country so great! Without FREEDOM I would not be able to home-educate my children, without FREEDOM I would not be able to practice my faith, without FREEDOM those of different faiths would not be able to practice theirs as well. FREEDOM gives me the right to vote as a women, the right to serve my country as I have done in USN (Proud Veteran). FREEDOM gives my children a voice to be heard and the right to have not just their voice heard but all who wish their voice too be heard. We have a great nation that our founding fathers created with all these FREEDOMS in mind. Being an American is something I am proud of something I stand for, so many men and women lost their lives in the name of FREEDOM. Many of which I have known. Happy Birthday America, may all our children be able to have the same FREEDOMS we have been blessed with lets all Stand for this great nation! BE PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN NO APOLOGY!

Have a wonderful 4th of July from my family to yours!

The Unseen Eleanor by Johnny Worthen **Release Day and Review**

18754928

The Unseen Eleanor by Johnny Worthen Book 1 is being released today July 1st 2014 so now is the time to grab your copy on Amazon. The Unseen Eleanor is about a shapeshifter or a skinwalker in Native American mythology. Eleanor takes place in a small town whirling with gossip with no opportunity. Eleanor lives with her “mother” who is dying of cancer, Eleanor is a loner, flying under the radar moving through the steps she calls life. Then when a boy returns to her town a boy that she was best-friends with as a small child everything changes in Eleanor’s life and things take you on a spiral everywhere. Read the synopsis on Goodreads.

When I started reading Eleanor I was first very confused at her shapeshifting abilities as you progress her story gets really interesting I was delighted by the story line although I have read many books on shapeshifting, author Worthen took me into the Native American mythology of shapeshifting this was not your average shapeshifting book. I really liked how all the characters were written. I read each of them with not too much detail just enough to fill in the blanks on their personality. My heart reached out to Eleanor as a character but mostly her ‘mother’. Tabitha is dying of cancer, her heart aches to be their for Eleanor they are so poor it is hard for her to imagine what is too become of Eleanor after she is dead. Tabitha holds on with everything she has and is a picture of a strong mother. I love how the state was taking great lengths to break them up however Tabitha fought hard every step of the way believing that everything would work out. Even if she doubted she never showed it to Eleanor! She is written like the mother we all would love to have.

Eleanor herself is a typical shy loner teenager not wanting to draw attention to herself. She looks at herself as a monster but in book 1 she progresses towards knowing who she really is, I will leave that for you to find out! The transformation is awesome. David is Eleanor’s returning best-friend from when she was little and know that she is in high school things have changed. I know that David is a sweet boy but his character was kind of annoying at some points of the book. I guess most teenage boys can seem that way in one time or another. LOL David seemed almost stalking at some points. He would show up at places, I understand loving someone however the obsession was a little scary, maybe even more scary than being a skinwalker. I think David was very well written however I think the creepiness needs to go.

Overall The Unseen Eleanor Book 1 by Johnny Worthen is a great read. If I were to ask for one thing to change it would be the language in the book, there is a mild amount of swearing that I think could be omitted, I am a foul language snob and just don’t like it. I would not allow my 12-year-old to read this book based on language it is not horrible but this book is supposed to be young adult. One of the reasons I love reading young adult books is the language is not used as often, however I see it becoming the normal more and more. I would recommend this book for ages 16 and up based on language.

I did enjoy the twists and turns that I was taken on in Eleanor’s life, this book keeps you guessing which is so a WINNER!  Author Johnny Worthen is a good writer and I look forward to reading the next book!

My Rating 4.5 out of 5 Stars – You can purchase this book Today!!!!! Make sure to add to your Goodreads Pick it up and Eleanor will make you HOWLLLL!
