Printing, Printing and More Printing
I am guessing that this is going on in a lot of homes right now as we gather material for next term.
Printing For History
Yesterday, I printed up the Simply Charlotte Mason History material I purchased. I am looking forward to using this for our history next year. I was planning on doing The Life of Christ and was going to pull it together myself, but this guide looks like it will work beautifully.
I did look at other curriculum, but I didn’t need all the extra fluff if you will. Diane Waring has a great program, but it is more for classroom use and I didn’t need all the extras.
I looked at Mystery of History, but I was reluctant because I have already purchased it twice before and never used it. Plus, it didn’t go into depth like I wanted.
We started Beautiful Feet Ancients last year, but only got past Egypt. After I landed in the hospital last Fall, it just seemed like we never got back on track with history.
So, after searching, I decided I would go the public domain route and put it together myself. I began gathering information and I knew it would take time, which I didn’t really have to put toward this.
I can’t remember where, but someone posted a link to Simply Charlotte Mason. I am not sure if it was for history or something else, but looking around I found this and it seemed to be what I was looking for. It is simple enough that I can add in a few books to our read aloud list and not feel over whelmed. We do history during story hour at night so the simplicity fits right in. I had most of the books which we collected through the years.
Needless to say, I am excited to get started.
Printing For Writing
I found this Write Thinking Series through the Robinson Curriculum YahooGroup. Again, I loved the simplicity of it. It goes great with our RC day. It is designed to help the student think and write critically.
I printed this out today and read through the teacher guide and lesson plans.
Printing My American Flag Lapbook
I created an American Flag Lapbook a few years back, but we have never done it. So, with Flag Day coming up, I thought we will finally get to it. It is simple, but informative. I think we need to do more patriotic lessons in our home. We shall start with the Flag.
If you would like a copy, LIKE my Facebook page. I have it available for my Facebook followers. It is under the coffee bears.
That is all the printing for now. Oh, I do have to print our Artist Lapbook…I almost forgot. This looks great and the kids and I are going to take it slow.
