Mammy5 Posted June 21, 2012 Share Posted June 21, 2012 Okay, so I see that some people like TOG in the elementary years and others say it's better to wait until the middle grades. I keep going around in circles with this. I have 4 children in the early grades, ages 5,6,7 and 8. Now, my 8 year old looooves history and is a Competent Carl (Cathy Duffy term) so wants to continually connect things. I love the WTM and want to stick with something that is close to those principles. I am going around in circles right now trying to figure out what to do. I seem to always come back around to TOG. I heard someone say it's textbookishy in the elementary years, or maybe I misunderstood them, I really don't like that idea. I have read the guide and looked at everything online and read the 3 week sample. I would really like more opinions on this from people who have had experience with the program. I am also looking into Easy Classical, which I did use some last year, but I find that the read-alouds are awesome for my older 2 I'm afraid the choices for history would be a little advanced for my youngest 2. I am glad to have so many wonderful options though! And of course there is the SOTW and activity guide? Help please! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
