Category Description for Words of the Week:

Combining picture studies, copy work and vocabulary, this charming series from Queen Homeschool provides older elementary and middle school students with an excellent resource for that "next level" of learning, Charlotte Mason style. Each volume contains 18 weekly lessons (approximately one semester) and features a unique photograph with the word of the week, definition and synonyms. The following daily lessons provide sentences related to the picture for copy work. These sentences include either the vocabulary word to be learned or one of its synonyms. Some of the copy work sentences are open-ended questions which can lead to additional writing exercises for the student or be used orally for younger students. Worth noting is that the volumes are designed to be completed in order, but the words do not increase in difficulty through the higher volumes. KJ Scripture references and other Christian sentiments are included. A wonderful concept for vocabulary in a real-life context, I am disappointed to see an occasional misspelled word - for example "intruige" instead of "intrigue" in volume 5 (it appears correctly on the next page), although innovative parents may use this as a practical teaching moment. Spiral bound. 39 pgs. ~Deanne

Pictures are low quality and not always ideal for the words. For example, the picture for "inviting" is dark and of a concrete pier on a very cloudy day, the one for "prolific" is of just a dozen mushrooms, "grandiose" is a carriage, "viscous" is a bonfire (while marshmallows are in the photo, the main focus is the fire, and the marshmallows aren't yet toasted, so they aren't gooey). I thought the picture for "distorted" (a child's face twisted into a mother's mouth) might bother dd, so instead of showing her that, we used an online app to distort our own picture. She had great fun with it. In spite of the pictures, I like the concept, it's a simple and easy way to add vocabulary into our week, dd likes it and she's learning words.

I love the concept of pictures study and vocabulary so I was excited to purchase this book in spite of a price a little higher than I might have chosen So I was disappointed today when I received my book I noticed right away the poor picture quality The pictures are quite pixelated and not very sharp One scene shows tree branches in winter and the branches themselves are just a series of brown squares These pictures will not bear well the close inspection I was anticipating with my children I am surprised that a Charlotte Mason-style publisher didn't make excellent pictures a bigger priority especially considering the cost for a 40 page book I am still deciding whether I will keep the book or send it back The rest of the concept is very nice and the pictures will be useable if I have the children see them from a distance but certainly not for the close and steady enjoyment I was hoping for
