Product Description:

A great introduction for kids to calendars and weather. Kids not only learn the basics about months such as how many days each month contains, the sequence of months, and what season each month belongs in, but they also practice weather observation each day to make them aware of the changes that occur throughout the year. Each month has a different weather observation such as the high temperature of each day, type of precipitation, cloud types, wind direction, etc. Children will circle the appropriate icon in each box of the calendar, and at the end of the month they learn how to put all of their collected data into one of several chart formats (bar, column, pie, etc.). Questions and a coloring sheet are also included to be completed at some point during each month's study, and teacher's tips and notes are included as well. ~ Megan

Category Description for Christian Light Mathematics:

Math is foundational in so many areas of study and life, and Christian Light Mathematics helps lay that solid foundation. Packed with practice and review, Christian Light employs an incremental spiral approach in a workbook format. Each lesson incorporates a new concept and is followed by review of previously learned concepts. Written from a Christian worldview, every lesson reinforces Biblical values. The math courses in this series from grades 1-9 are the Sunrise edition of the series. The Sunrise Edition divides Light Units into daily lessons; two quizzes provide opportunity for application of skills learned; and formatting is clear and more appealing. Each level is one year of math at grade level and those implementing the program will need one set of 10 Light Units per student and a Teacher Guide(s) or answer key. At grades 1 and 2 the teacher guides are required and teacher guides are strongly recommended for grades 3 and 4. Each Light Unit contains student exercises and a test. The first Light Unit in grades 2-8 is a review of the previous grade. The Teacher Guides for grades 1-8 include teacher tips and student pages with answers and solutions. If you don't think you need the Teacher Guide, but want the answers at a quick glance, answer keys are available.

To help ensure students learn their math facts, daily speed drills, oral exercises, and flash-cards are tools used for students in grades 1-4. Basic algebraic and geometric concepts are introduced early, along with money, problem solving, mental math, and number patterns to help students become proficient in these skills. A few supplemental materials are needed for the lower grades Grade 1 uses addition and subtraction flash cards (#72144); My Counting Book (#72357); Counting Chart (#72173); and optional My Calendar Book (#21786); and student clock (#15339 or #60101); Grade 2 uses addition and subtraction flash cards (#72144); Counting Chart (#72173); and optional multiplication/division flash cards (#72356); My Calendar Book (#21786); student clock (#15339 or #60101); and math reference chart (#68518); Grade 3 uses optional flash cards as in 1st and 2nd grades, and the math reference chart. Grades 4, 5, and soon to be 6 (later in 2018) offer the option of using the Light Unit approach or text book approach same content but a choice of consumable or non-consumable.

If you choose the Light Units path, parents need only to purchase the Light Units and Teacher Guides or answer keys. If choosing the textbook path, then you will need the textbook (non-consumable), student pack (consumable), Teacher Guide and/or Full Solutions Answer Key. Textbooks are colorful with illustrations and pictures, and provide opportunity for students to do their work on a separate sheet of paper. The Student Pack includes quizzes, tests, and daily speed/mastery drills (math facts review) and measurement equivalents. Full Solutions Answer Key shows each problem of the textbook, quizzes, and tests with step-by-step solutions. Teacher Guides for the textbook are also in full color and include student pages with answers and a cd of printables posters, charts, and practice sheets.

The addition/subtraction flash cards accompanying this curriculum for grades 1-4 are numbered and tabbed to correspond to the teacher guides at those grade levels. Cards measure 3.5" x 7.5", addition/subtraction go from 0 to 18. Multiplication/division flash cards measure 3.5" x 5" and cover math facts from 0-12. The multiplication fact is on the front of the card with the opposite division fact on the reverse. These aren't numbered and tabbed like the addition/subtraction cards. Math Reference Charts are available for grades 2-6, 5-8, and 7/8. These are 8.5" x 11" laminated sheets for easy reference at a glance for those items that students need to remember but need a little help measurement tables, formulas, etc.

Grade 8 is considered pre-algebra and prepares students for any algebra 1 course. It introduces students to concepts needed at the higher levels of math such as Pythagorean theorem, irrational square roots, and basic trigonometry.

The sequence for high school is Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, and Functions and Trigonometry. To use Algebra I you will need the 10 Light Units (students write on their own paper), solution key (solutions to the Light Units exercises), tests & quizzes, and the test & quiz answer key. These are all sold separately for the Algebra I level. Geometry, Algebra II, and Functions and Trigonometry, each use 10 Light Units and 5 answer keys. Finishing through Functions and Trigonometry will prepare students for college level math.

Consumer Math is an optional math course offered in this series. Equivalent to one high school credit, this course applies math to everyday situations. There are 10 Light Units and 5 answer keys needed to complete the course and they cover basic and everyday math fractions, decimals, percent, family finances, construction & building trades, service occupations, transportation, business services, and occupational diagrams. ~ Donna

Glad I found this, wanted a way for my son to track the calender that looked more like what he would usually see instead of a daily calendar on the wall.

Great book for daily focusing on seasons and paying attention to weather!
Laura B on Aug 31, 2019
Cheaper to buy a book then to continue to print their daily weather charts and I love the monthly focus on a weather element

This looked like a great supplement to introduce my 1st grader to calendars and weather together - a great science unit.

It was recommended on a thread when I googled how to teach my toddler the months and days of each year.
Angie C on May 3, 2017
One of the loveliest books to begin our school day. My children always enjoy this time to sit and start the day.

What non temperature related data does this ask you to record for the months of January February March April and may? In what month?
User on Apr 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The book covers how many days each month contains, the sequence of months, and what season each month belongs in. In addition, weather-wise: each month has a different weather observation such as the high temperature of each day, type of precipitation, cloud types, wind direction, etc.
Does this book begin in January? Also, does it cover all 12 months of the year? Thanks!
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It does begin in January and covers all 12 months. It also contains a section in the back of the book that give you the chance to chart the data you have recorded for the month (for example, one month you record the clouds each day, then at the end of the month you put that data into a pie chart or bar graph.) While the book begins in January, you can start it anytime. I have used this book three times, each time beginning in September when we begin school.
