Michael Baker
Four activity books helps teachers supplement their writing programs with easy-to-use critical thinking activities that emphasize real life communication skills. Students analyze a critical-thinking problem, produce a solution, and communicate their solution in writing to other students. Ideal for grades 4-12 and works well with younger gifted students and as a remediation tool for older ones. Students practice skills by analyzing short complex problems and writing solutions to them.

Cursive Connections
Kathryn Libbie
This cursive workbook uniquely emphasizes letter connections, rather than the letters in isolation. This workbook briefly introduces the letter, and then pairs it with previously learned letters, beginning with the vowels. Practice becomes increasingly complex, progressing into the usage of the letter in words, phrases, and finally sentences. The result is fluent, quality cursive.

Easy Grammar
Easy Grammar Plus
Wanda Phillips
After trying multiple grammar programs with mixed results, we found Easy Grammar. This program is unique because it starts with prepositions. After crossing out prepositional phrases, finding subjects, verbs, direct objects, etc., becomes much easier. For us, this program succeeded where others had not. The teacher's book has reproducible student pages (great for multiple children), but a student workbook is also available.
