So, I will begin again next year using Greenleaf Press's Guide to the old testament and spend a whole year on that using activities and living books mostly the Bible. The following year we will use Green Leaf Press's Guide to Ancient Egypt, with activities and living books. This puts us on a nice 7 year tour through history before we repeat it again in the Dialect stage using the great books via Omnibus.
Slowing down will give us more time to spend on the basics of writing and reading which is the the main focus of the first few years.
Why do I love doing History from a Biblical perspective?
We will not hide them from our children;
We will tell the next generation
The praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
His power, and the wonders he has done….
So the next generation would know them,
Even the children yet to be born
And they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God
and would not forget his deeds
But would keep his commands.
Psalms 78: 4,6,7
