  2. Many of you saw this on our Facebook page last night, but I wanted all the forum folks to have a chance too: Until 10 AM Eastern Time today, just about everything on Well-Trained Mind Press's online store is discounted by 30%. No coupon codes needed. Save on books, downloads, and CDs by Susan Wise Bauer, Kate Snow, Jim Weiss, Boris Fishman, and more!
  3. Hi all, While supplies last, we're offering VERY LIGHTLY scratched/scuffed books from Well-Trained Mind Press for 60% off the cover price! We have The Story of the World (activity books, textbooks, and tests), First Language Lessons, Writing With Ease, Writing With Skill, The Creative Writer, Telling God's Story, and many more. These books (which, honestly, aren't very scratched, and just look like they'll look once your children have them for a few weeks anyway) are only available through our office, not our website, so call 1.877.322.3445 to find out what's available and to make your purchase. Justin from Well-Trained Mind Press

Browse our America category here.
  5. Next year, I will have: 5th gr, 3rd gr, and P-K. History has been very hit and miss in our house up until now. With the 5th grader, I would like to make it more of a priority. I am not so much concerned with mastery; just a basic understanding and whetted appetite for the subject. The 3rd grader will join us and the Pr-K will do what he pleases. :) I would love to hear thoughts about pros and cons of these two systems, especially if you have used them both and can help me with how they are similar/different: Story of the World + Activity Book Remember the Days from Biblioplan + the extras (Discussion Guide, Family Guide, Cool Histories, etc) (I don't mind not starting with Ancients, since the Remember the Days for Ancients is not yet ready.) Thanks in advance! Stacey
  6. Hi y'all, We just received a truckload of our own books that can't be sold in bookstores, since they have tiny dings, bends, or scratches on them (the content is unaffected). So we're selling them for 60% off the cover price. Writing With Ease, Story of the World, First Language Lessons, Writing With Skill, The Top-Secret Guide to Getting Your In-Laws to Stop Nagging You About Your Homeschooling Choices, and more! Ok, one of those may have been a joke. The books are at our office, not our warehouse, so you'll need to purchase them by phone. Call 1.877.322.3445 to find out what's available, and to buy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  7. We are finishing the 4th volume of Story of the World this year. My boys are going to be in 7th grade next year, and I want to decide on what we are going to use for History next year. I would like to start over with the Ancients again, and I am hoping to get some recommendations on what to use. The History of the Ancient World is recommended for 9th grade, so do you think that would make it inappropriate for 7th grade students? I'm considering going through the 4 volumes of Story of the World again, and doing more supplementary work this time. Are there other history books out there that I should consider?
  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 son is doing a lot better on his reading but still needs me to read-aloud to him. i am looking for chronological history that uses real literature (not text books) that has a Christian slant and is not necessarily grade specific (meaning "1st grade", "2nd grade" etc.) I am not interested in unit studies because I don't have time to complete a bunch of projects. I also want continue implementing note booking (I have a lifetime membership to notebookingpages.com). I have been considering the Beautiful Feet Study guides but they don't have much for younger elementary. I have looked at SCM but it seems like it is really geared for kids that are older even though it says you can use it for K-12. I am thinking about tossing out the history spine and just using books from my collection and library that go in order more chronologically. The problem I have with that is always wondering if I am missing something. But with my son being young still, I'm thinking that it really won't matter because he will go over it later when he gets older. I guess I'm just looking for something that doesn't take so much time to do. Using a spine takes a lot of time because I first have to read the spine book, then I have to go find the other books to follow up so that the subject is remembered and enjoyed. Ugh. I want to have a variety of books (not just use history as literature reading) so as to not get burned out with the subject matter. I'd really appreciate your input. Thanks!
  9. So you're starting school next week, and you just realized that you forgot to order textbooks. Should you panic? No! (Well, not about this, anyway. Feel free to panic about other things.) Instead of panicking, rejoice! Your procrastination has paid off. For a limited time, just about everything on our website is 15% off. It's our "last minute panic sale." You're welcome.
  10. 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, Volume 3, and Volume 4. OR SAVE $6 when you buy all 4 in one bundle! Let me know if you have any questions...
  11. 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 use for next year - TOG year 2 or SOTW Vol 2? Here are some considerations.... 1. I definitely want to use TOG at the higher grades, and planned to use it for this first cycle so I myself could get used to the planning. However... 2. SOTW is simpler, and my kids have definitely liked it. Simpler is starting to sound more appealing, at this stage where I have one barely independent reader and most subjects are still being done orally with both kids, which is a lot of hands-on investment of my time with each kid each day. (We're also using RightStart math, which I LOVE, but which is time-intensive.) More planning might be easier when we've hit the point where I can hand off assignments and check in, instead of hovering over shoulders all day. (Is it real that there will be a day when I can hand off assignments and check in? That seems like a fairy tale. But I digress.) With SOTW, I can incorporate some hands-on projects from the activity guide, and bam - history's done, versus more planning and more book juggling with TOG. For 2nd grade, it might just be easier to do what's...easy. 3. Can anyone speak to the differing scopes of the two curricula? TOG 2 seems like it's a lot of Church history, and it ZIPS through the Middle Ages awfully fast. It goes all the way from the fall of Rome to the Constitution, and to me, that seems like a lot to cover in one year. It almost seems like, at my kids' ages, more time on the Middle Ages and Renaissance might be preferable to a lot of Church history, which they might not really appreciate until they're a bit older? Or am I wrong about the TOG scope? Have you who've used it found that TOG Year 2 works well for the younger ages? Will we be missing something if we go with SOTW? 4. Finally, because of the difference in scope, it seems that whatever I use this year, I'll need to use next year as well. So the decision feels big...although I'm starting to learn the homeschooling lesson that consistency means more than having the "perfect" curriculum. Sorry for all of my rambling, and thank you very much for your thoughts! :)
  12. I'm looking for recommendations on how to structure a very beginning world history class. This would be a CO-OP class (10 weeks each semester) for 3rd and 4th graders. My soon to be 3rd grader is really interested in learning about medieval history, but I told her it might be good to start at the very beginning and work up to that. I was thinking of using Child's History of the World for it's very short and easy approach, but then pulling in as much of Story of the World as possible (Ancient Times) and using activities out of that book. We would do a lapbook as well as activities each week to support the lessons. This would be an early introduction, and then the following year 4th we'd start working through SOTW. But on our own at home. Thoughts, recommendations? Quote MultiQuote Edit Report
  13. We will be starting Ancients in late spring. I was looking through the SOTW AG and love the extensive book lists. DD is a strong reader and most of the books can simply be placed in the library bin for her to read as she chooses. However, I would love to use some of the best options in our evening read aloud time. What your top picks are for a "family read aloud time" that correspond with Ancients? Can be fiction or nonfiction, longer picture books or chapter books, good for any elementary grade audience. Please let me know what part of Ancients the books line up well with, too, so I know when to slot them in!

    Story of the World Pre-K?

    I really like what I've read about Story of the World. Does anyone know if 4 years old is too young to get started?
  15. Is there anyone out there that has combined SOW 1 & SOW 2 in 1 school year? I used SOW 1 for part of last school year but I'd like to get my ds caught up with SOW2 by the beginning of 3rd grade so that we can move in to American/U.S. history. Is this a ridiculous task to take on? I've been looking at Sonlight Core B+C because of this very reason but I'm not sure if it would be too advanced for my 2nd grader to take on with no older siblings. I'd love to hear from others on your thoughts. Also does anyone know of a read-aloud book list put together for the SOW series? Thank you :)
  16. 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 loved having them write out what they learned in history. Or do you find the kids do great with the questions and not bother with narrations? Thanks so much for your help.
  17. 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.
  18. We are looking at doing SOTW Vol 2 as a large group next year, but several of the children in the group have some reading struggles. I am trying to piece together a book list that will go along with it from books that have Audio Books available (I know Magic Tree House has a couple we can use). Do you have any suggestions??? Thanks!
  19. Hi all, I am interested in combining SOTW vol 1 with Living Math C1U1. I am finding Living Math's format really difficult to work with--- too much of a good thing. I am lost! Has anyone already compiled a complementary list of living math books that go well with SOTW chapters? Any help would be appreciated! TIA! Jennifer
  20. If there is a thread I've overlooked answering this question, please let me know! We are doing Story of the World volume 1 Ancient Times this year. I'd love to find a readers list (not read a louds but books my dd can read on her own) that goes along with ancient civilization. I'm looking for 3rd-4th grade reading level. She is a rising 2nd grader, so I'm also being aware of content and comprehension being appropriate. Thank you!
  21. We finished our one year of American History this year, and I am ready to get started on our 4 year World History. I am trying to decide between Story of the World and Mystery of History. I see lots of people liking both programs, but I am wondering which one is better for a 2nd grader. I was thinking SOTW, but then I heard that SOTW is too boring for little ones. And I like that MOH weaves in the bible. But the cost is really high on MOH. So many pros and cons to each. I was wondering which one do you prefer, and which one do you think is better for a 2nd grader. All opinions appreciated! Thanks! ~Jennifer
  22. Next year will be second year homeschooling. My six year old son will be in "first grade" and we are both very excited to start the first Story of the World book. My problem is that I have two other children who will be in kindergarten next year. My other son is five and my daughter is four. She will be five in December, but I thought I could start her homeschooling early so as not to have three different grade levels all at once the following year. She seems quite ready for basic math and basic reading. My main concern surrounds Story of the World. Should I begin next year? If it is too challenging for the the young ones (which I highly suspect) then that means the following year I will have two different levels for History. I was trying to combine as many subjects as I could to better manage my day. Has anyone tried to teach Story of the World with multiple children who were close in age? I could wait a year and start them all at the same time, but my first grader is quite ready and eager. I also have a two year old who will eventually be home schooled and I am concerned about having soooo many different levels in so many different subjects. I expect different levels in reading and math, but I was hoping to combine history, science, and Bible whenever possible. Any advice? Thanks.
  23. We will begin SOTW 1 with my first grade son in the fall. I like SOTW for the most part, but I really want to weave Biblical history in as well. Is Biblioplan a good fit for a 1st grader? Would I just need to buy the lesson plans and not the companion, since I'm using SOTW as my spine & I'll also use the AG for SOTW? I downloaded the sample from the website & I wasn't impressed with the companion from Biblioplan.
  24. We are currently using History Odyssey's Modern Times and will finish up our first 4-year history cycle this spring. I'm stuck on where to go from here. I would like to start back over at ancients, and looked into SOTW. Am I missing something or are there only 4 volumes --one for each of the first 4 years? I thought people used it beyond the 4 years, but that's all I could find on the WTM website. I could use History Odyssey again (this is our first year using it) but I'm not all that impressed with it. I think it jumps around too much. Is the 2nd round of Ancient's decent? Is there something else we can use that follows the 4-year cycle for grades 5-8? We're not religious, so Christian curriculum is out. SOTW is about as Christiany as I'll go. TIA!
  25. Hello all! I have a 6 year old (1st grader) who will begins his first year in Classical Conversations in August. I'm still trying to figure all this out. When do I need to incorporate history (I'm thinking SOTW) into our at-home curriculum? I understand that we will be going over the history timeline in CC, but I was thinking that we may need to supplement that with SOTW. Is this true? Just to give you a more complete picture, we will also be supplementing with math, phonics, and Bible in addition to possible adding piano (taught by dad), and Spanish. I also have 3 year twins that I will be caring for and "homeschooling". I also have an at home business, so I do have a few concerns about being stretched. Thanks so much for all your advice and input!
