Product Description:

Publisher Description:

In an immersive, exciting narrative nonfiction format, this powerful book follows a selection of people who experienced the events surrounding the breaking of the color barrier in baseball.

Category Description for Tangled History Series:

These simple books tell the stories of American tragedies through the perspectives of those who witnessed them. This format keeps the stories factual and interesting. Each person's account is broken up into smaller pieces and the book hops from perspective to perspective while following the timeline, allowing readers to "see" the event from several angles. It has a historical fiction feel that keeps readers captivated, but without adding in characters that weren't actually there. The language is fairly simple and accompanied by photographs, making these stories accessible to younger students. I really enjoyed reading these, and I'm sure your student will too. 112 softcover pages each. - Laura

My husband and I both have employment backgrounds which are based on mathematical concepts After utilizing two of the most popular homeschooling math curriculums our child just wasn't "getting math" One curriculum utilized the "spiraling concept" while the other curriculum utilized the "thinking outside the box" concept Our child was frustrated with both curriculums and didn't have a clear understanding of math After talking with one of the educational consultants at Rainbow Resource Center my husband and I decided on MCP Math MCP Math is a "gentle and effective" math curriculum which utilizes the "mastery concept" to teach math The teacher's guide is a dream come true giving you examples of how to teach the concepts through hands on activities/games As you progress through the curriculum your child will develop an understanding of math how to think mathematically and how to apply what they have learned I give this curriculum an A+!

MCP is my all time favorite math program for elementary level My older son who was very quick to grasp concepts was able to move along without getting bogged down My younger son needed to learn things in smaller pieces and enjoyed the repetition The daily lessons were just enough for both boys I absolutely love this math program and highly recommend it!
