Omma Posted July 29, 2008 Share Posted July 29, 2008 Here's my problem... I did SL Core 1 (Ancient History) and then I jumped right past SL Core 2 (which I still have on my shelf) and went to the first half of American History this past year (using WP AS 1). So now I have to decide between doing the 2nd half of American History (WP AS 2), SL Core 2 (which covers the 2nd half of World History), or MFW ECC (covering World Geography). All three of these curriculums are currently on my shelf, and I am having a hard time planning out the next several years. My dc will be 3rd and 1st graders this year (ages 8 and 6.5). My 1st grade dd is tired of studying wars, as we spent a lot of time on the Revolutionary War and, more recently, the Civil War. But I am thinking that we should probably go ahead and try to finish AS 2 first (even though I am not excited about it). But then should I go to ECC and then back to the Ancients and just wait on SL Core 2 until after we do a 2nd round of Ancient History. By then my oldest will be older than the 7-10 age range. Also, I know that MFW has the philosophy of not spending time on wars and the 'bad' parts of history until after doing ECC. And if I held off on AS 2 right now, I could combine it with some of SL Core 4 later on, although I am leaning more towards using either MFW or WP as my main curriculum in the future. So let me know what order you would choose, and why. And if you want to know how I got myself in this mess, well it started with me wanting to get my fourth Core from SL (which was Core 2) so that I'd have free forum access and be an Heirloom member with continual 10% discounts. I guess SL's marketing strategy works very well, doesn't it?!! :tongue_smilie: Brenda ds 8, going into 3rd grade dd 6.5 going into 1st grade (for the 2nd time, as we held her back due to a late November birthday) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
