  1. TH Whites King Arthur series: The Once and Future King?
  2. My daughter is year 6 and we are just starting these books this year, so don’t feel restricted by the suggested timeline. Admittedly, I don’t intended to get through the whole series, it’s just too late at this stage! We are doing 2 this year and 2 next year then moving onto the next series. I’m focusing on a mix of her favourite topics and a couple of areas of her study that has holes in it.
  3. Thanks for your thoughts Bluegoat ☺️ This is our 6th year HS so most of this is tried and tested and I have all the texts already. I just want to be sure I’m not leaving anything out. WWE has good days and bad days here but overall I like the approach and the literature selections so we stick with it. Out of curiosity though, what do you use instead?
  4. Thank you! I looked into that after posting and found some a great thread suggesting the same thing which I believe is more than likely going to be the case. Ive also just noticed she is finishing up WWE 3 not 4, so we will do the end of level assessment which will more than likely suggest continue on with WWE 4 for this year.
  5. I switched over to the New Syllabus and buy from education reformation ☺️
  6. I’m finishing up my planning for my year 6 daughter and would appreciate any feedback. Have I covered everything? Or am I being overly ambitious? ☺️ Her favourite subjects are Language Arts (though writing/composition is a weak spot), world history (I thank SOTW for this), art, languages and loves nature and science though this will be her first year with Apologia. I haven’t included art/music appreciation in my plan as I’m still searching for something easy and child led. It’s likely we will end up at the library here. Any and all suggestions welcome! Thanks in advance Language Arts Grammar: finish up FLL and start GFTWTM Writing: finish WWE and start WWS Spelling: list from www.k12reader.com Reading: big reader so a mixture of prescribed reading, poetry and reading for pleasure Hope to encorporate a book study or 2 this year. Maths: Singapore Maths Kumon Science: Apologia exploring creation Zooology 1 and Astronomy this year World History: following WTM for world history using Encyclopedia of WH as spine Australian History: Wide Brown Land for Me! Language: German tutor Latin: Getting Started with Latin Logic: Mind Benders 2 and 3 Music: piano lessons Art: outschool classes learn at home program (can’t remember the name) Civics: Homeschool downunder Australian Prime Ministers And Election ebooks
  7. I 2nd adventures from the book of Virtues. Also, the adventure of young Marco Polo was really well done and inadvertently educational.
  8. The art of cursive? https://www.educationreformation.net/copywork-books
  9. My daughter is starting year 5 next in the new year. She is about 2/3 of the way through First Language Lessons 4. Is it important we finish this or should we just move straight into Grammar for the Well Trained Mind 1 next year? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks HollyDay I think this might be it momchiroto2 http://web.archive.org/web/20150909202152/http://www.redshift.com/~bonajo/SOTWmenu.htm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yes! I just saw Pandi Press. I really liked the look of it - its colourful and well organised (and the stickers would be a hit as well) Thanks for sharing :) Do you use their curriculum as well or just the timeline?
  12. Lol we are the reverse here! I loved the book of centuries however my DD never got into it. She is very visual so I think laying it out on the wall is going help make it click for her. I will take a look at Knowledge quest.
  13. I'm trying to balance my creative and practical sides and would love to hear what has been your favourite way to do the timeline. I like to ease of just buying the blank pages from rainbow resource however with postage that's $30 AU. I found this printable which I like the idea of however it opened the door to all sorts of creative possibilities! I would love to hear/see how your doing it in your homeschool if you would like to share with me.
  14. Here's the link for WBL also http://www.adnilpress.com.au Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
