  2. My oldest will be going into 6th grade next year, so I am trying to plan out his middle school curriculum. We are currently part of a charter which has its benefits and disadvantages. One of the most aggravating issues is that we are required to comply with state standards, some of which I don't agree with. For now, the benefits seem to outweigh the down-sides, so I'm doing my best to navigate these problems. In California, middle schoolers cover history as follows: 6th grade - Ancient Times 7th grade - Medieval Times 8th grade - Modern Times The blessing is that I ca

  4. We're studying ancient history this year and I would like to use SOTW1 for my younger children while my older son and I read HOTAW. I don't want to reinvent the wheel if someone has already correlated the chapters between these books. Is anyone aware of a chapter correlation out there?
  5. Hello Hive, Well-Trained Mind Press is in the early stages of revising the book-lists (fiction and non-fiction) in the Activity Book of "The Story of the World, Volume 3." We'll be adding new titles that have come out in the past 15 years (or titles that we missed the first time around!), and deleting some that are so thoroughly out of print that no parent could be expected to find them. We have a plan for doing it that we think will provide a variety of parental viewpoints, and keep any one contributor from getting stuck with too much work. We've divided the book into sections (chap
  6. Hi forums folks...just wanted to let you know that we're running a big sale at Well-Trained Mind Press. We're discounting most of our history, grammar, writing, and math titles by up to 36%, and our Jim Weiss audio recordings are also 15% off or more. It's a great chance to stock up on books for next school year, or for summer learning. Want something for yourself? Susan Wise Bauer's books for grown-ups (Rethinking School; The History of Western Science, etc) are discounted by 25%. Sale ends on April 30th.
  7. We're trying to (more or less) do WTM-style history here. I'll have a dd13 (8th, somewhat accelerated), dd10 (5th) and dd7 (2nd) next year. As good little WTMers, we've followed the 4-year cycle and will be doing the Modern Era (1850 to Present). History is going to have to go differently than it has in past years for several reasons: Dd13 is pretty responsible and able to work on her own. In fact, I've taken advantage of this for the past several years to the extent that she has had little interaction with me about History and is finding the encyclopedia/timeline/extra reading/summary
  8. I have been using SOTW 1 with the AG for my 8yo son and even though I go over the comprehension questions and have him narrate and review with him, he's just not retaining anything from this book. I have even printed up and laminated review cards from the AG and he really doesn't remember the stories. I have used AO's year 1 stories and he did better. I am just so frustrated when it comes to finding something that is chronological and at a 2nd/3rd grade listening interest when it comes to history. SL and AO have great reading lists but I just don't have the time to read all day long. My s
  9. Hello all, I'm preparing for my fifth year of homeschooling. My oldest son is entering 5th grade, and this past year we completed the SOTW cycle. I'm a big fan of WTM, so I was planning on going with her recommendations for the logic stage for history- not having a basic text but using a history encyclopedia as a spine and then outside reading, etc. I just stumbled upon The History of the Ancient World and realized that she has written a textbook and a study guide. It says grades 6-12. I'm wondering, have any of you used this? Is it for middle school, or more for high school? Wha
  10. We will be using (some of) SOTW 4 for history this year and was wondering if anyone has some good book suggestions for 3rd graders for the Modern History time period. The activity guide seems to have suggestions for slightly older kiddos. My girls read well, so I'm not so much looking for books on a 3rd grade reading level, but books with 3rd grade content. :) Any suggestions for any books in general for this time period would be great (even for the 6th grader)! :)
  11. Hi all, Thanks to widespread customer demand, we have created written versions of the oral "discussion questions" that are found in every chapter of the Story of the World Activity Books. These written versions, with blanks for the student to write the answers, can be given out as homework assignments or review worksheets. You, of course, will have the answers in your Activity Book, but now the student won't have them. :) Download these PDF packs from our site...we typed 'em up so you don't have to. This way you can enjoy your summer :) Descriptions and samples: Volume 1, Volume 2, Vol
  12. After abdandoing my plans to do AO (good riddance...this was a good move for me/us), I am planning out the year for my 1st and 3rd grader. We will be using SOTW as our history spine, and I have the activity books to refer to as well, for maps and such. We are also going to be using Brave Writer for each child (The Wand and The Arrow). With AO, everything was laid out and scheduled for me, down to page numbers, so I knew what to plan for a week, a month, etc. Now that I'm on my own, I'm freaking out a little bit! I have us down to do about a chapter (sometimes 2) from SOTW for each child. Yes,
  13. This is my second time through the Story of the World and it's coming to a close. My younger two children (ages 10 & 8) just don't have the knack for history narrations that my oldest (12), who has more of a natural inclination toward the subject, mustered (back when I was more of a dragon mom!), so I'd like to conclude the series in a different way - I want it to be more fun and literature based, since that is what they enjoy most (in addition to any kind of art). I am finally ready to give up the activity guide - it's been a good tool, but due to my perfectionistic tendencies (which my c
  14. Hi there! I am deliberating between TOG Yr 2 and SOTW Vol 2 next year for my upcoming 2nd grader and kindergartener. We have used TOG Year 1 this year, but with SOTW Vol 1 as the spine. The kids have really enjoyed and retained a lot from the hands-on projects, but of all the reading we've done, SOTW has definitely been the most enjoyable. I already have TOG Year 2, and I'm looking through it and noticing both that SOTW 2 doesn't seem to be scheduled much (which is disappointing) but also noticing that the 2nd-year scope of the curricula seem very different. I'm trying to decide which to u
  15. I'm in a grammar stage SOTW group, but I'm the only independent homeschooler. The rest of the families homeschool under an umbrella charter that follows a 36-week school year schedule. With our SOTW 2 book, I went through all 40+ chapters and grouped some like chapters so that we could fit everything into a 36 week schedule. Or, not necessarily similar chapters, but maybe two chapters back-to-back that were shorter chapters, or didn't have as many outside readings and/or activities. Ideally, it would be nice to just do one chapter per week, but in order to have everyone working together, t
  16. Okay, since we are using History Odyssey Level 2 Middle Ages, Human Odyssey texts, SOTW 2, KingFisher, and Usborne History Encyclopedia..... We needed a reading chart!! I've noticed A TON of threads on reading schedules for these books...... so I'm sharing ours. I have come across helpful schedules and just meshed them together so it is all in one place rather than separate schedules. So I didn't entirely come up with this myself! I had help from a bunch of you on the WTM Forum! Thank you.... you know who you are. It's not an easy task lining up different sources, but I feel this is pre
  17. Hey y'all, Just a quick reminder that Peace Hill Press has lowered its prices by 20% on nearly everything in the store...and we've lowered the prices on our already-discounted "School in a Box" kits by 10%. No need to enter coupon codes, etc; the prices are already cut. This sale continues through Monday at noon Eastern time. Justin at PHP
  18. I LOVE the look of biblioplan for history. My girls will be in 2nd and 4th grade and in the medieval period of history. This year we did ancients with SOTW. We loved it. We did narrations and a lapbook and a timeline and just had so much fun with it. I really wanted to incorporate biblioplan and do more literature tied in with history, as well as stuff that isn't history related. My only concern was that it doesn't include narrations. Have any of y'all used this program and incorporated narrations for history? I don't want to bog them down with extra work just to say we did. But I lov
  19. I'm putting together a history project for the next couple years, loosely based on Sonlight G/H, usuing SOTW as my spine. My kids are 5,8,11 and 13. I mostly know what I'm doing, but the SOTW activity book suggests 4 encyclopedias for cross reference: The Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia The Usborne Book of World History (which I already own) The Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia of World History Do I really need all of them? I can get The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia from the library to look at, but I don't want to buy anothe
  20. I would rather go through the Middle Ages with my two oldest dd's chronologically like SOTW instead of by region like History Odyssey does in Level 2 Middle Ages. My girls wanted to use History Odyssey Level 2 plugging in Human Odyssey for their reading assignments instead of using TSOM. We would like to do it chronologically though, especially since we will listen to the SOTW audio. Has anyone paired up SOTW 2 with History Odyssey Level 2 Middle Ages in a schedule that they don't mind sharing?? I've searched but haven't found anything yet.
  21. I am going to be doing SOTW 2 with my 2nd and 4th grade girls next year. It is easy to find literature for a 2nd grader because that is typically when one would be in that year. I have found Classical House of LIterature to use with her. I may not use every day's narration page though, as I think she would become frustrated. However, I am having trouble finding some history based literature for my 4th grader. Does anyone have suggestions for 4th grade or 5th grade level books for this year in history? And did you do special questions or anything to go with them, or just have them read an
  22. Sometimes our books are damaged in the printer-to-warehouse-to-bookstore journey, and we can no longer sell them at full price. But if you don't mind a bit of minor wear & tear (small scratches, etc), you can save money on all kinds of Peace Hill Press products! We keep a list of currently-available discounted books here. Since they're kept at our office, rather than at our warehouse, you'll need to order them by phone. Call us at 1.877.322.3445.
  23. I am in the process of trying HO Level 1 (Early Modern) with A. -- we are in the second week -- and since neither of us particularly enjoys SOTW, and since it will take a chunk o'time to read the SOTW assignments, I am wondering if we are better served by not using SOTW or by including it? My goals at this point are: to get A. onto a history track that I don't have to personally design; to have him learning some history and developing related skills RE note-taking, writing, &c; and not to spend time needlessly -- we do a generous amount of academics, and his classical piano takes up a lot
  24. I want to start using SotW and I would like to try an activity book as well, but I don't honestly see us using all four books (they are pricey and my kids don't usually go for crafts, coloring and projects). I'm leaning towards just starting with volume 1, but if it's a miss I would never know if there is a better volume. So I guess I am just asking which activity book gives the most bang for the buck? If we love it then I would feel better about buying another book in the future. FWIW, my boys are 6 and 8 and we have already done a year each of world history, countries and cultures, and
  25. For a while, I have planned to use MFW ADV in 2014 (we school according to the calendar year). But now I'm thinking about using SOTW 2 in 2014, and then starting ADV in 2015. We used SOTW 1 this year. I will use MFW--already own the programs for ADV-RTR--but I'm wondering if it would be better for our family to wait one more year for MFW, sad as it would be for me, since I was highly anticipating it this year! Could those of you who love planning look at my family's line-up and tell me wwyd in my situation??? I'll give year, then the "grades" of my children for that year, then my line-up f
