TOS Crew Review: Progeny Press~ The Cay

I talk about how much the kiddos love some of these reviews products we use, however, I actually think this product will go on my list of faves!  I absolutely have loved reading The Cay and learning from this guide.  I am also very excited about all of the other titles they offer.  We have been trying to do a monthly unit type study on a chapter book, almost in place of our other work (minus daily math).  This is our 2nd month and book and we have really learned a lot in just two books.  By using the study guide, doing unit study type work, it really works in with my wanting to be relaxing in our schooling.


We were given a few choices and we chose The Cay by Theodore Taylor.  I don't think I had ever read it, and I know the kiddos had never read it.  We started with the audio book and listened through the entire story ~ which ended up being a good idea, since Phillip had such the accent, it made it easier to read.  After we listened, we started some of the pre-reading ideas.  Their favorite was the map-work, but I liked the timeline we did!  The kiddos are still reading the book and we are working our way through each chapter doing the work that is in the study guide.  We have thoroughly enjoyed some of the optional activities as well!  Are you interested in a study guide for a great book?  Check them out!

Progeny Press has all grade levels and a nice assortment of books to study. Prices begin at $6.99 and go from there, depending on what book and what products.
