  1. Hello, I am putting together a class for my 9th grader (and some others) for next year to cover the core and standards of WA ELA. I am doing this though from a science perspective so that my student will in fact learn and engage with the course. I am combining Botany and Mythology together to meet said standards required. I am looking for suggestions or resources that are not costly that will help with this process. I have a microscope and a Intro to botany book on its way. The two areas separately are easy enough to teach, but putting them together is where I am having some questions. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
  2. I'm looking for a good survey of Greek mythology, pre-Iliad/Odyssey. Something along the lines of Padraic Colum's The Golden Fleece and the Heroes Who LIved Before Achilles. But more pleasant to read. How readable is Hamilton's Mythology? It's been years since I've read it, but I don't remember it flowing very well. Am I missing any options? Something a little more comprehensive than D'Aulaire's Greek Myths. This would be a summer/independent read, prior to tackling primary sources, such as Hesiod & Ovid. TIA!
  3. My daughter wanted to take the National Mythology Exam in the coming year. I tried to create an account on their site, but never received an activation e-mail. So, I cannot get the information about how to register to take the exam. Then, I tried sending them a message through the "contact us" part of their website. My e-mail bounced back undeliverable. Twice. Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? Can anyone provide any insight to what is going on or how we can manage to register?
  4. I thought they might be interesting to build a mythology/cultures/religions type study. http://www.amazon.com/Joseph-Campbell-Mythos-I/dp/B000PUB2AC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333635207&sr=8-1 Any opinions, experience with this series?
  5. I'd like some advice from the Hive Mind. We started HSing in August, switched to a private school in November (long story), and I'm pulling her out in the next two weeks. During all this time, she's been obsessed with Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology. My poor, beleaguered husband, who is the designated bedtime reader, pretty much has D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths and D'Aulaire's Book of Norse Myths memorized at this point. He's also read to her: Padraic Colum's The Children of Odin, Classic Myths to Read Aloud by William Russell, Myths of the Norsemen From the Eddas and Sagas by H. A. Guerber, Asgard Stories Tales from Norse Mythology by Cummings, Mabel H. and Foster, Mary H. The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights by Sir James Knowles (not a hit) While I'm pleased she's so into mythology, it's a little disconcerting. My mother (who lives with us), was talking about Vikings, and so I mentioned that the Vikings are the Norsemen, and she was puzzled. :huh: Clearly, I need to do some context with her, so I thought that this spring would be a great opportunity to use some history and geography for background on the stories. I'm just a leeetle unsure how to go about it. I thought perhaps that we should at least do some maps, because she likes maps, I like maps, and we have maps on the wall. She's kind of familiar with the world map already. I bought Dover's Around the World Coloring Book for her, as well as Dover's Greek and Roman gods coloring books. I'm tempted to start SOTW Ancient Times, but I'm not entirely sure that's really where I want to go. I just don't want her to end up like the gifted, PS 4th grader I met this winter, who had no idea what a continent was. :thumbdown: Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
  6. We are beginning a study of Greek and Roman mythology. We are reading d'Audelaire's Greek Mythology, but I thought it would be fun to support it with some fun mythology learning/game apps. Can anyone suggest apps for the iPad or iPhone that help with learning and remembering mythology details? Our son is in 5th grade. Thanks!
  7. Please excuse me for cross posting, I haven't had any replies on other thread. We are beginning a study of Greek and Roman mythology. We are reading d'Audelaire's Greek Mythology, but I thought it would be fun to support it with some fun mythology learning/game apps. Can anyone suggest apps for the iPad or iPhone that help with learning and remembering mythology details? Just for fun. Our son is in 5th grade. Thanks!
  8. We are starting year 7. I was wondering if we should go back and do Age of Fable before starting Age of Chivalry or just go ahead with Age of Chivalry? What are your thoughts on this?
  9. I came across this post and it really made me think. I'd love to hear other's opinions and thoughts on the topic! http://homeschoolingbible.com/should-we-teach-mythology/
  10. Does anyone have a book of Egyptian mythology for children that they love? I've been checking out everything from my library. So far, I like "Tales of Ancient Egypt" by Roger Lancelyn Green the best, but was wondering if there's something great out there that my library doesn't have. I love D'Aulaire's Greek and Norse books, is there anything comparable for Egypt?
  11. He is reading the Golden Fleece right now and asked if he could read/study more along this type of thing. He just read the D'aulaire's Book of Greek Myths and the Percy Jackson books. He is not looking for a deep study but one more for pleasure. Please, I need some ideas...
  12. I already own Myths of Greece and Rome by Guerber, and Bullfinch's Mythology. I just want some study guides or lit guides for either. Can someone point me in the right direction? Secondarily, would D'aulaire's mythology book be too young?
  13. Our first firm yes we are goign to do this....and I have no idea how to do it LOL. Instead of a hard core history program we are going to do a unit study so to speak of Greek Mythology. The kids are SO interested in it I hate to pass up their interest. Has anyone here done a unit like this? My husband wants to do Eygptian and Roman after Greek. Thoughts and ideas?
  14. This semester I taught a Percy Jackson class to a group of 12 homeschoolers: http://www.knittedthoughts.com/2011/01/teaching-percy-jackson.html Take a look at my post if you'd like ideas about how to do this with your own child. It was a really wonderful opportunity to expand on the mythology they learned in their reading and great chance to enjoy the world of books as a group!
  15. I am going to be teaching Greek Mythology to a group (maybe 15-20?) of 8- to 12-year-old kids this Spring for 12 weeks (1-hour classes). I have never even attended a co-op, so I don't really know what is expected. I have lots of Greek Mythology books, but don't know how to tie it into an interesting and *fun* course. Any suggestions? Has anyone taught this to a co-op before? Would it be too boring to read about a different myth each week and then do some little craft or activity associated with it (make paper wings for our shoes for Hermes and deliver letters; act out a myth with costumes; make Medusa's head out of playdoh and the mirror shield out of cardboard and tin foil)? Are at-home assignments usually handed out at co-op classes? Any input would be extremely welcome! :bigear:
  16. Hi all, My dd who is in 10th grade has finally begun to express an interest in her education! Never thought that would happen. Now she has expressed an interest in an in depth study of Greek history. Next school year we are going to do a year long study of Greek mythology with TTC dvd lectures. But I was thinking of doing a semester of Greek history in the spring to get us ready for next fall. Can anyone recommend so resources we could use in the spring? Thanks so much!
  17. My cousin Lyon is a children's book author and illustrator and a Neopagan mom, too. She creates a free coloring page every month or so and posts it to her MagicalChildNews YahooGroup files. She's been doing an ABC of obscure goddesses and is on V for Vasudhara, a Hindi goddess of abundance. Each page has a detailed drawing and a little explanation. Her YahooGroup is very silent, with just one chatty promo thing every six weeks or so. It's definitely worth joining for all the great free files! I promise she will not spam you or sell your name.
  18. ...for next year. I have my books for ancient history stacked up in the living room as I try to find some space for them. He loved mythology when I read it to him four years ago (1st grade), so he saw the mythology books out again and started reading furiously. He will probably finish the Percy Jackson books before summer is over, and he has read through the D'Aulaires book of myths twice now. Can anyone suggest more mythology books for his 5th grade year?
  19. Literature borrows from its rich past. Classical homeschoolers (and everyone) undoubtedly benefit from understanding such religious symbolism and allusion they encounter in reading literature. Let's draft a list of books and resources to help us draw upon these sacred stories to help us understand works of literature and art. I am only just beginning to build my library and have ordered a few books mentioned on another thread. The first book I have is: Marduk the Mighty by Andrew Matthews - a compilation of creation stories from various world cultures, both ancient and contemporary I'll be happy to list more once my new books arrive, if they are not mentioned already.
  20. Feel free to point me towards a resource. My ds asked me this questions - if the Romans actually believed these gods existed. I read in a book (that I can not remember the name of) that most did not actually believe in the myths. Can someone straighten me out, please:)? Thanks!
  21. I'm trying to decide between D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths and The Children of Odin. I'm fairly certain we won't go wrong with either, but would love to hear input from those that have read both/either. Do you have a favourite? Or another option to throw into the mix?
  22. Is there a curriculum or list that anyone knows about to help my 5th grade daughter study mythology? We're almost finished with SOTW 4 and she says she'd like to read just mythology for the last quarter of this year. I'm putting together a list on my own, but I'd rather not re-invent the wheel. Thanks!
  23. My 7yo and I just finished D'Aulaires Greek Myths as a read-aloud and she loved it. We then went on to Mary Pope Osborne's Favorite Greek Myths, which she enjoyed, although not quite as well. She even wants to be a Greek goddess (hasn't decided which one) for Halloween next year. So...now I would like to add in myths and fairy tales from other cultures. What are your favorite recs?
  24. Ds asked to study Mythology. Anyone here study this? If so what books do/did you use? He would like to get credit for this if possible.
