You got it MZgarden.

You picked all fairly small, soft cover books so probably not more than 3 or 4 pounds.

My wife's aunt (kindergarten) and mother (2nd and 5th grade) were involved with curriculum development in their schools, so we ended up with several texts aimed at younger students. When you see a hyphen in the name, that's part of the title. If you see a colon, what follows is my attempt to explain the book a bit more.

Elementary
21. Quick Science – experiments you can do in a minute
22. Science Secrets: science demonstrations
23. Ranger Rick’s Nature Scope: studies on frogs and toads
24. Science Projects, Worksheets, and Helpful Ideas I

26. 101 Best Nature Games and Projects
27. Imagination & Me: songs, music, activities aimed at kinders
28. Secret Magnets
29. Magic Science Tricks
30. More Magic Science Tricks
31. Easy to make Paper Art Activities for Holidays and Seasons
32. Simple Science Says- Take One Mirror
33. Simple Science Says- Take One Magnifying Glass
34. Mother Nature’s crafts book
35. How’s This for size – Fascinating Science Facts
36. Wild Animal Flash Cards: a card deck game to learn about animals
37. Bright Ideas for Teachers: this one isn’t just science but all sorts of activities for young students
38. Stick your Neck out: beginning reading activities
39. Creative Encounters-activities to expand children’s response to literature: You read stories like Flat Stanley or the Princess and the Pea and this book gives activities to spur discussion and suggests additional books with similar themes
40. Reading Ideas Ready To Use: a workbook for beginning readers
41. Wildlife Adventure Cards: a box with a couple hundred cards on wild animals, with a photo and lots of info on habitat, foods, etc.


Middle School
10. Familiar Trees of South Carolina: a brief identification guide
11. Creative Science – Ideas and Activities for teachers and children
12. Science can be fun
13. Events of the 20th Century : a book of word finds
14. Unlocking Science Skills – Life Science/Biology


And in addition, for piano:

I have about 20 books, they range from classic exercises, a big book of rag time, sheet music from the 50s - 70s, jazz. Some of it is aimed at those with a year or two experience and some requires several years experience.

Guitar:

Maybe 15 books for beginning guitar

Buslady - send me a PM with your address. Need it tonight or very early tmr pls. I'll let you know what the postage is and you can mail me a check. I'm guessing it will be about $15.00 My science teacher wife selected what she thought would be best for 4th thru 8th grade. Lots of good stuff in there and I'm very happy to see that it is going to someone who will be able to put it to good use.

Hey, DEKE01, I JUST saw this thread......I too am just starting out and could sure use materials (have 4 kids to teach, 7 through 16 years of age). I see that all the science books have been taken but I could sure use the beginning reading stuff:
38. Stick Your Neck Out
39. Creative Encounters
40. Reading Ideas Ready to Use
and maybe, if it's not spoken for:
37. Bright Ideas For Teachers

I hope it's not too late for my request; thanks for all of this, even if it's too late for me!
I will pm my address. I live in Missouri now, no longer in Austria as my name suggests, so shipping is not complicated.

Wooo Wooo wooo!!! Jackpot.

I think all that you specifically asked for was taken by a local non HT person, but I do have several science, math, and misc books that should serve you well with your varied age group. There were some science books that were so similar that I split them between you and buslady.

And that is the last of it.

Buslady, you should delete that. It isn't wise to have your name and address out on the net like that.

I'll send you a OM as soon as I know the postage.
