cam112198 Posted November 8, 2011 Share Posted November 8, 2011 I feel like a broken record! History and Science is not happening! My dd9, ds6, and dd5 are enrolled in Foundations (Classical Conversations). I had this great idea that I would build on our history and science sentences using the resource list that my director gave me (we are doing American history this year). I have had dd9 reading a SOTW chapter that correlates with the history sentence, but she doesn't like it. For some reason she has never liked SOTW. She complains anytime I pull the book out or turn the audio on. I'm learning that I really like things planned out for me. I have very little time to pull it together on my own (mostly due to having a dd1 that is constantly climbing on tables or eating anything she can get her hands on). I'm very tempted to try a textbook approach. Living books sounds great, but it's not getting done. I need some ideas for an independent history and science for a 9-year-old. How do you guys have enough time in the day to teach 3+ children? If I had my dd9 doing something independent for history and science it would take such a weight off. And then when I got to the good books it would be an added bonus. I just feel like I'm not doing enough with my 4th grader. Thanks for listening! :001_smile: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
