New Materials

Creek Edge Press is back in production mode!
The school year is winding down and our pace is changing. Many hours have been released from school and teaching as recitals and assignments have been completed. The entire Creek Edge Press team is excited to present our next phase of production.

Canadian History Task Card Set 
Our newest set of task cards is complete. We expect they will hit our storefront and be ready to ship by the end of June.

I am particularly happy to release this set as my childhood home bordered Sarnia, Ontario at a time when international exchange took place with ease. My Suzuki violin lessons and many fun community activities took place 'across the bridge.' That background and the help of several Canadian friends of Creek Edge Press have served this project well.

Recitation Handbooks
Relational learning plays an important role in the context of the Task Card Approach. Children need to hear and say new terms. They benefit from opportunities to listen, read, and recite in a group setting. Our Recitation Handbooks allow all levels to experience and work on these skills at the same time. The books include a tiered approach to memory work (called recitation) across the curriculum as well as copywork and dictation for grades K - 12. The handbooks include 32 week open-and-go plans and line up with our History Task Card Sets. An innovative feature of these handbooks is the ability to customize them to include family or church related memory work without disrupting the week by week format. We are hoping to have these in the storefront and ready to ship in August.

Task Card Approach 
This new book explores the foundations and distinctives of the Task Card Approach, providing you with encouragement and practical insight into the application of these principles within your home or school. We are hopeful that this book will be available in e-book format in August. 

2012 - 2013 Catalog 
Our new catalog with course description is located on our home page in a printable pdf version.

Choosing Your Path

Families and schools vary in their preferences for sequencing work in science and history. This article outlines several possibilities for planning the sequence of your studies using Task Card Sets from Creek Edge Press.

If you scroll down this
page you will see a link to our catalog where you will find detailed
descriptions of each Task Card Set. These will help you understand how the cards may be used at various stages. Over time, the standard required in your student's response is increased and students use more detailed materials to complete the tasks as they mature. During the grammar stage, students naturally focus on major figures, events, and basic vocabulary. Dialectic students use in-depth materials that encourage understanding of broad themes and patterns.

Most families prefer to study one era of history each year (or term). This focus provides a shared experience among the students and eases the burden of preparation. It isn't always practical to plan a prepared environment for more than one subject in science, but some families prefer to have several sets going at once for various levels. The following lists details possible plans for one student.

K - Geography and Culture and simple nature study for science
1 - Ancient World and Life Science
2 - Medieval World and Earth and Space
3 - Early Modern World and Physics and Digital Science
4 - Modern World and Chemistry and Great Scientists
5 - Geography and Culture and Ancient World (one semester each) and Life Science
6 - Medieval World and Earth and Space
7 - Early Modern World and Physics and Digital Science
8 - Modern World and Chemistry and Great Scientists

If you want to include a year for American History study, your schedule might look like this.

K - Geography and Culture and nature study
1 - American History and Life Science
2 - Ancient World and Earth and Space
3 - Medieval World and Physics and Digital Science
4 - Early Modern World and Chemistry and Great Scientists
5 - Modern World and Life Science
6 - Geography and Culture and Ancient World (one semester each) and Earth and Space
7 - Medieval World progressing into Early Modern and Physics and Digital Science
8 - Early Modern through Modern World and Chemistry and Great Scientists

Consider mapping out a plan for your oldest student and having the younger students fold in as able. There are many good options. Whatever your preference, you will find that your plan provides focus and eases your preparation.
