New Materials

Creek Edge Press is back in production mode!
The school year is winding down and our pace is changing. Many hours have been released from school and teaching as recitals and assignments have been completed. The entire Creek Edge Press team is excited to present our next phase of production.


Canadian History Task Card Set 
Our newest set of task cards is complete. We expect they will hit our storefront and be ready to ship by the end of June.

I am particularly happy to release this set as my childhood home bordered Sarnia, Ontario at a time when international exchange took place with ease. My Suzuki violin lessons and many fun community activities took place ‘across the bridge.’ That background and the help of several Canadian friends of Creek Edge Press have served this project well.


Recitation Handbooks
Relational learning plays an important role in the context of the Task Card Approach. Children need to hear and say new terms. They benefit from opportunities to listen, read, and recite in a group setting. Our Recitation Handbooks allow all levels to experience and work on these skills at the same time. The books include a tiered approach to memory work (called recitation) across the curriculum as well as copywork and dictation for grades K – 12. The handbooks include 32 week open-and-go plans and line up with our History Task Card Sets. An innovative feature of these handbooks is the ability to customize them to include family or church related memory work without disrupting the week by week format. We are hoping to have these in the storefront and ready to ship in August.


Task Card Approach 
This new book explores the foundations and distinctives of the Task Card Approach, providing you with encouragement and practical insight into the application of these principles within your home or school. We are hopeful that this book will be available in e-book format in August. 


2012 – 2013 Catalog 
Our new catalog with course description is located on our home page in a printable pdf version.




Erratum – American History Task Card Book List


I wanted to alert you to an error that has occured in the printing of several American History Introductions. The error is found on the page titled Book List and Tips.  You might want to print the following corrected list and place it inside your Introducation.



Core Books


Smithsonian Children’s Encyclopedia of American History


The Kingfisher Student Encyclopedia of the United States


Presidents, Eyewitness Books


Our Country’s Presidents, National Geographic Society


Our Fifty States, National Geographic



Atlas


Scholastic Atlas of the United States



If your Introduction is one of the affected copies, you will find World History options listed and those are fine to use on a supplemental basis, but they won’t go into enough detail for completing the tasks.

As always, feel free to substitute comparable materials. 

PDF Update

Our technical support team has been working on providing a pdf version primarily for our international customers.  Unfortunately, we have run into difficulties and have found that we cannot provide a quality product due to the quantity of content on the cards.  Specifically, card content is cut off with all models of ink jet printers and several non-commercial laser printers.  We will not be pursuing this further at this time.  International customers are welcome to contact us for a discount on international shipping on qualifying orders.
