S: The Story of the World Activity Book One #atozchallenge

Edited By: Susan Wise Bauer

I am 99.9% sure that next year we'll be using The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child, Volume 1 as part of Charis's education. I'm thankful our library system has the different volumes and activity books because I've been able to go through it in depth and come to a decision. I was on the fence about purchasing the activity book, but I will.

The maps. Charis LOVES maps; So much so, that I've printed out a map of the USA and as the different states have their primary elections, we've been coloring in the state for either Clinton or Sanders for the Democrats and Trump, Cruz, or for the Republicans.

The read aloud suggestions. One thing I have hope to do for a long time in being a mother is reading aloud to my children. I grew up with a mother who believed reading aloud to us was beneficial (even in high school). Eventually, I viewed myself as being too old to be read aloud to... but a little secret (or not so little secret), when I was in high school, I would often stop outside my mother's class room and listen to her read to her students.

The activity projects. Often I am unimaginative, but my daughter enjoys painting and art. She is a hands on learner.

For those wondering. No, I have not drunk the Kool-Aid and gone full force into Classical education (there are some issues that Drew and I have with Classical education). Even though we disagree with a few things does not mean we need to throw out everything and try to come up with something new.

Do you homeschool your children? What curriculum do you use?
