sunnylady303 Posted December 20, 2011 Share Posted December 20, 2011 We have been trying to slog through the ancients for more than a year. Last year we worked with Sonlight B trying going through history but we never past the Egyptians and kind of petered out with history - reading, math, spelling took so much attention. This year we are using SOTW 1 but it has been hit or miss and again we seemed stalled at the Egyptians. We are all kind of weary of this stage. The girls (5&8) have a lot of energy around SOTW 2 topics or American History. I'm wondering if it would be acceptable to just skip this stuff we've been mired in for like 18 months. :rolleyes: I understand the need for chronology (and especially when the kids are older) but is it better to feel stuck and grouchy or to just skip forward? Or do I need to find a way to imbue some energy into this? We are doing almost no history right now because we are all so tired of the ancients...so what do you think? Skip to SOTW 2, start a random American History unit, or figure out a way to energize us on SOTW 1? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
