skaterbabs Posted May 23, 2009 Share Posted May 23, 2009 We're doing SOTW vol 1 with the kids this (coming) year and just started with DS #1 and DD. DD is NOT enjoying it. She cries everytime I bring it out.:glare: We'd planned to just read it to her & her brothers while she colors the pictures from the activity book, but at this rate she's not really getting ANYTHING from it that I can tell. She does enjoy having historical (biography-based) picture books read to her, and we've learned about some neat people as a result. So based on that, which of the following options would you recommend: 1. skip SOTW for this year entirely and just have a nice tall stack of the history books she likes, perhaps giving a year to concentrate on k/1 level US history or 2. skip the SOTW text and find picture books on the SOTW 1 subjects to read to her instead or 3. Something else I haven't thought of? She's reading on such a high level, and will be six in mid-October, so I think I may be expecting first-grade behaviour from a child who is still in many ways a preschooler. So with that in mind, I guess what I'm asking is, should I be doing K-level history & science with her, rather than 1st grade. (She reads on a mid-3rd grade level and is doing 1st grade math.)
