For our current year, we are in the history cycle of 1500 to 1850 AD. For my logic level student, we have planned to read 4 literatures per term (there are 3 terms) (and we are going to read most, not all, of TWTM logic literature list for grade 7) along with Canadian Literature (1 book), Shakespeare and Poetry. I am finding it is still too much for us to cover. How do I know what books to read and which can be cut? I would like to get my list down to about about 2 literatures, Shakespeare and Poetry, therefore I would like to know what book I could cut from our list of TWTM logic literature list for grade 7. And then I would like to know how to go about doing this for the future in any other grade? I would really love to hear from those who are strong in literature and can give me real practical principles to follow. Thank you!
If you had to pick JUST 3 books (literature) a year to purchase and read with a child, and that is IT, other than the Bible, what 3 books would you pick, for each grade Preschool through grade 8? Links to particular editions would be helpful, if you have favorites? You could look at this as a family stranded on an island with NO outside resources. Or you could look at this as what mom TAUGHT and the children can then read widely on their own. Or any other scenario you choose. But I'd like to see people's lists of just 3 pieces of quality literature per year. non multa, sed multum Plinius Not many, but much. (Meaning, not quantity but quality.)
