  1. I just checked out the Time Traveler series at my library, and the books are awesome! I think we will start with these next year. I love how thorough yet humorous they are!
  2. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/series/HSN/history-news I just found them from an old thread (haven't read them yet). I have read the Linda Bailey's "Adventures in" series and those we love. Adventures in the Middle Ages was a huge hit this year.
  3. I have heard of those. I thought they might not work, but I think I should let my ds decide that so I'm going to try a couple. He might just love them. Thanks! I also just found a series called History News that looks pretty good.
  4. So, this post has really helped me identify my main goals in history. I want my kids to enjoy it, even if this means I ditch the SOTW AG 3 guide I just bought new 😐 I might try out SOTW 3 in the car to see if it's a hit for us. I think my "history" time at home will consist of reading fun books for now. What these are I don't really know but books other than the Time Traveller series suggested above (these look awesome!). I want to try this for a year. Any more "fun" history books you can suggest?
  5. These links are absolutely amazing!!!!! Definitely want to start incorporating panoramas weekly.
  6. It's so funny because my ds begs for audiobooks in the car. He's listened to Ramona, Henry Huggins, The Penderwicks, The Land of Stories ... those types of books. I've NEVER thought of putting on SOTW in the car. Definitely have to try this!
  7. Will definitely check out K12. What grade did you use Hakim's concise US history books?
  8. Will definitely check these out! Panoramas sound awesome!
  9. I think these activities sound amazing and my ds would love them, but I also know that I don't have the margin in my homeschooling days to make these happen consistently. Will definitely check out the links! Thanks! This last suggestion is great - especially the key words for each chapter and reserving books for a future date! I'm pretty sure my library allows me to reserve ahead, but I've never tried it. Genius! I definitely think having the supplemental books planned out for the year would make my days a lot easier.
  10. I love the idea of doing the audio version. But I'm also questioning if I just want to finish SOTW to finish it, or if I actually think it still could be of value to us. I am really trying to uproot all of my curriculum choices that are there just to check the box. And that is so my personality.
  11. Yes! Mine are all about the fiction books but HATE encyclopedias. I've tried a couple of really beautifully illustrated encyclopedia-type books and we haven't made it through 10 pages.
  12. I totally agree. Never thought I would think of switching, but now I am considering it.
