gamommy Posted May 21, 2009 Share Posted May 21, 2009 We've just completed BP Ancients with a 5th and 1st grader (one a very strong reader, one who's not at all). We had chosen BP for the following reasons: uses SOTW and MOH as spines integrates literature provides some map and timeline components quite affordable While BP certainly did all of these things I felt that we missed the best parts of both individual programs (SOTW and MOH) by studying regionally and not chronologically. I found the pace hectic and am dreading doing it all again next year. Can the hive help? Is there a better alternative for us as we plan year 2 of the cycle next year? I really do think that using just MOH would've been over my 1st graders head and that using just SOTW would not have been enough for my 5th grader. I'm looking for something that includes a good deal of literature and that is well laid out. I've also got a toddler and an older student who will be studying the modern period. I feel s-t-r-e-t-c-h-ed as it is. Should I be looking in a totally new direction? TIA! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
