Review: “Word Up” and “Antiquity,” from Compass Classroom

As we have been allowing a little more screen time into our homeschool, my family and I have been enjoying a couple of educational videos from Compass Classroom, and I wanted to share about two of them here: one that I purchased and one that I was given for review. First is “Word Up: The Vocab Show.


I purchased this DVD during a recent sale and we have only one complaint: there is no Volume 2! My children are ages 5, 11, and 13, and they ALL ask for episodes of this show, which we have made a part of our homeschool morning time. Dwayne Thomas is the host, and he teaches about Latin and Greek roots and words derived from them, but does so in a super entertaining way. I highly recommend this DVD! You can get two free lessons here to see if your kids enjoy it as much as mine.

Next, my husband and I have been watching Dave Raymond’s “Antiquity” history class via the streaming option. My oldest daughter is a rising 8th grader, and we are previewing this series for her in order to figure out where to fit it into her high school curriculum. Side note: one of the nice things about Compass Classroom is that they provide all the information you need for reporting course credits for high school students, and each of the volumes in Dave Raymond’s History series qualifies as a high school history credit when parents follow the assignments as given. We have already watched the “Modernity” series and I have a review of that here.

There are so many things I like about Dave Raymond’s history classes, including the fact that he teaches from a Biblical worldview and brings a traditional Christian viewpoint into how he describes cultures and events. Another benefit of these classes is the beauty that video adds above and beyond still photographs. Students really get to experience the places being talked about, and they can see the art and artifacts as they’re being discussed. It’s a engaging way for older students to learn. I recommend this series for high school students and above, or possibly very mature middle school students.

Although DVD copies of Antiquity won’t ship until June, the series is already available to stream here. You can also check out a couple of free episodes to see if you like it as much as we did!

Thanks to Compass Classroom for allowing us to review Antiquity. (And please start production on Season 2 of Word Up!)

Homeschool Made Simple
One of the best resources I have ever used for homeschooling is the Homeschool Made Simple   DVD series by Carole Joy Seid. It’s 50% off during Compass Classroom’s Spring Sale, through April 8. I loaned my copy to a friend and I just purchased another one just to have it on hand! Carole gives SUCH a sense of peace about what’s required to teach your children at home, and stresses reading aloud, as well as the importance of dividing time between school, work, and service. I cannot recommend this series enough! Go here to check it out and to see a free lesson!

One of our favorite events we attend together as a family each year is the 18th Century Trade Faire at Fort Loudoun in Vonore. This year the Trade Faire will be October 19 & 20, which should make for perfect weather for this fun event!

There are also lots of different performers and demonstrations, including many people in period costume. We especially enjoy catching the Amazing Budabi Brothers‘ show every year. The Trade Faire is a great event for kids and adults alike!

Admission costs for the event are as follows:

On the eve of St. Nicholas Day 2018…

Tomorrow is St. Nicholas Day! Don’t forget to have your children leave their shoes out by the door so St. Nick can fill them with presents and goodies tonight!

If I could go back in time, we would solely do Santa gifts on December 6 and save the 25th for family gifts and celebrating Christ’s birth. But, my daughters absolutely won’t consider it now, as they are delighted about playing “the Santa game” on the 24th with their baby brother.

If you’re looking to introduce St. Nick into your family traditions, here are some past posts on books and resources I recommend:

We also purchased the cute St. Nicholas felt doll and Ostheimer figure from Bella Luna Toys, here!

 

Hope you have a wonderful Advent season!
