eBook with Type It In
Love the convenience of eBooks but have a student who is a struggling writer or just prefers to work on the computer? Our Type It In eBooks have all the same materials as our regular eBooks plus the ability to type right onto the graphics! To use this version you only need Adobe Reader, however if you wish to save the unit with the students answers in it , change fonts, add pictures, or alter anything further, you will need the full version of Acrobat Adobe. Therefore it is recommended that the student print each activity as they complete it.
CDs contain a copy of our products in eBook format . You will need the free Adobe Reader to open it. The benefit of a CD is that you can quickly and easily insert it into your computer, select only the pages you want to print out, and then just walk away - no need to scan or copy one page at a time taking up your precious time! CD’s also save valuable bookshelf space and they serve as a readymade back-up too!
A printed copy is great for anyone who likes to have something in their hands to teach from.
Our spiral binding makes copying the graphics for your students a breeze because it folds behind itself.
Sometimes out of sight means out of mind, so having the printed version helps keep you bringing laughter and learning into your children’s schooling often!
Printed with CD Combo
The best of both worlds- a printed book and a CD - for only $3 more! Want something tangible to teach from but want the convenience of printing graphics from the CD? Then this is the way to go! CDs are stored in an adhesive pocket in the back of the printed book, so it isn’t separated from the unit.
Note Packs are ready-to-go notebooking units. With our Note Packs your students are able to enjoy the same Research Guide and activities as our lapbooks, but without all of the cutting and pasting! Simply 3-hole punch the fun and interesting pages and add them to any 3-ring binder. Note Packs are available in the same formats as lapbooks.
Project Pack Plus
Do you have both older and younger students? Then a Project Pack Plus is a great option for you! It includes all of the elements of a Lapbook unit PLUS the Note Pack pages. Your children can complete a lapbook, a notebook, or a combination of both! Available in printed or eBook formats.

What is a project pack, you ask? It's simply a way to gather together all key components of a certain learning subject/theme into one handy spot, for ease of use, the facilitation of comprehension and focus, and easy storage and reviewing later. The Multiplication Pizza Party Project Pack is a downloadable e-book which contains everything you need to create a project pack for your homeschool classroom, complete with illustrations and visuals, problems to solve, and easy-to-follow directions for assembly and use.
Project packs are terrific for both visual learners, yes, but also for kinetic learners who are aided by having tangible manipulatives and objects in-hand while learning. Since my son is most definitely a kinetic learner, these types of learning tools have proven to be a valuable part of our classroom in several subject areas.
Within this project pack are 13 separate lessons, all revolving around the theme of planning and preparing to throw a pizza party. All of the aspects of planning a party are included (planning on food amounts, deciding on party games to play), which expands the exercise to learning real-life scenarios and skills. Also included are an exercise in taking measurements, a multiplication maze, and a coloring sheet, among others. To wrap up the unit, it becomes time to "pay the bill," giving your child the opportunity to practice their money counting skills, as well.
For any child first learning (or somewhat struggling with) learning multiplication facts, I highly recommend the Multiplication Pizza Party Project Pack. It's a well-rounded approach that broadens into several other areas, helping show your child that math is not exclusive (nor is it not fully relational to "real life").

13 different activities designed to illustrate how useful and fun multiplication is in planning a party! I got this to use with my 2nd grader, who knows her skip counting, but was fearful of tackling multiplication officially. She dove in, and has consumed the project entirely, with eagerness and joy.
We even had a pizza party at home, with Grandma, and little brother. I easily adapted the printouts for her 3 year old Pre-K brother, and made a Pizza Number lapbook for him. Very simple, and extremely impressive to him, as he longs to keep up with Big Sister.
The scenarios are fun and understandable, the printouts are clever, and the activities are diverse, yet related.
I am thrilled with this lap book/project and impressed with how well it met the needs of my child. I am looking at purchasing the Ancient History lap books next. On to Rome!
