Hey fellow homeschoolers! How are you doing this week?
We’ve been enjoying our summer, while still trying to get in a little reading and learning here and there.
Which brings me to a question for you.
Have you heard of Progeny Press?
I’ve heard of it myself, I know it’s popular among homeschoolers, but I didn’t really know what they were all about until just recently! And now I’m really glad I’ve had the chance to learn more about them and the wonderful eGuides that they have!
Today I want to tell you about the eGuide that we had the pleasure of reviewing, it’s called The Josephina Story Quilt – eGuide.
It is a lower elementary eGuide to go along with the book The Josephina Story Quilt. There are 34 pages which include:
- Background on the authors and story
- Prereading suggested activities
- Vocabulary activities related to the story
- General content questions
- Literary analysis and terminology questions designed to give students a good understanding of writing technique and how to use it
- Critical analysis questions designed to help students consider and analyze the intellectual, moral, and spiritual issues in the story and weigh them with reference to scripture
- and, of course, a detailed answer key!
Our library allows us to search for books in all of the libraries in the area, and we were able to find a copy of The Josephina Story Quilt to borrow. And then we set out working through the eGuide while reading the book.
I just want to say that I LOVE that the eGuide gives background information about the time period of the story and details about the locations that the story takes place in. It really helps to give better understanding of the story to my almost 8 year old.
Along with reading and comprehension questions, the eGuide also has some fun activities such as a word search, crossword, map work, a recipe, and arts and crafts suggestions.
We really enjoyed working through the The Josephina Story Quilt eGuide, and I’m looking forward to using more of their eGuides in our future homeschool studies.
They are such a great way to see how your child is retaining what they’ve read, and they also allow your children to dig deeper into the story and even do some fun activities relating to the story.
Progeny Press also has a number of other eGuides for Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary, Middle School and High School levels that you can find on their website. They are available as downloads, which makes it super simple to read on your computer or devices, and then you can easily print out pages as you need them. Simple!
