Slipper Posted December 13, 2011 Share Posted December 13, 2011 I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to help me put things together for January. I want a curriculum for history that my daughter can use. I have read through the boards and know that SOTW is one that I think we would enjoy. However, it seems that SOTW is used along with other history curriculums? I'm afraid that I'm a bit confused as to why more than one history curriculum is needed? My daughter loves to read and I know she will want to read additional materials that correspond to what we are studying. She enjoys school work. At this time, I don't need a 'heavy' history program. She's in 1st grade. She can read simple chapter books, but definitely prefers fiction over non-fiction. I don't want a boring program. She's also very artsy-craftsy which is another reason I was drawn to SOTW. My husband and I have a very firm belief that children should find learning fun and so far, they have. At the same time, my mother is a guidance counselor and there is a definite coolness towards our decision to home school our youngest. She keeps wanting to know if our daughter will be behind when school starts next fall. (I don't think we're sending her back, but we aren't making that decision now). I appreciate your help and suggestions. :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
