The Crew reviewed several of Homeschool Legacy’s Once-A-Week Unit Studies, including:
Growing Up Wild
The Growing Up Wild DVD series introduces viewers to the Wild family who serve as missionaries in Indonesia. Targeted towards children ages 5-12, it is their hope that these videos will not only educate children about real-life on the field but be used to raise up the next generation of missionaries.
The Crew reviewed Volume 1 and Volume 4 in theGrowing Up Wild Series. Each volume contains a DVD with 3 episodes and a CD with an activity guide. The individual episodes are approximately 15 minutes in length and will address a specific aspect of living in the jungle and remote tribal missions. The accompanying activity guide offers activity ideas for families to do together to connect with the Wild family, learn more about the world they live in, and to challenge them to think globally.

Classical Academic Press
Classical Academic Press is a leading name in the classical method of home education, offering resources covering languages, logic, and Bible study.
The Crew reviewed 2 products from CAP last year — Song School Spanish and God’s Great Covenant, Book One.
Song School Spanish is the latest product in the Classical Academic Press language course choices. The Song School Spanish student set for grades kindergarten through third includes:
- Accompanying children’s music CD (42 songs) bound in to each student text

The Teacher’s Edition includes the entire student text as well as answer keys, teacher’s tips, and fun ideas for interactive classroom activities. It also includes over forty pages of additional activities and worksheets for advanced students or those who simply want more Spanish study.
God’s Great Covenant Book 1, which begins with Genesis and covers through the book of Ruth. It is divided into five units (themes) to help children grades 3-6 grasp the bigger concepts being taught in these first books of the Bible. The five themes are God’s Promises, God’s Power, God’s Redemption, God’s Provision, and God’s Faithfulness. It is told in a narrative style so that children are engaged by the stories, yet clearly see God’s unfolding plan that ultimately leads to Jesus.
Speekee uses a mixture of children filmed on location in Spain with puppets to teach Spanish in an immersion approach. Each video has a theme (e.g. El Cafe, El Zoo, etc.) with consistency in format. This repetition within each program helps the kids to learn key words and phrases in a fun manner.
The target range for Speekee is toddler through elementary grades. Speekee TV provides not only access to the videos, but also to Speekee FastTrack which lays out an easy to follow plan spanning 40 weeks. Each week has suggested activities with corresponding video clips, worksheets and other resources. They also supply vocabulary flashcards by episode for review with your child.
