Our school year is almost over, so I have decided that we will just be doing the basics and our final Crew reviews for these last few weeks. We have been using our regular math, science programs from the Crew, and our history, geography, and everything else has been coming from reading aloud. I am hoping to start using a lot more of a Charlotte Mason-type learning method, and this is a great transition. So what have we been reading this week?
The Seven Little Sisters who live on the Round Ball that Floats in the AirWe have been reading this on our Sony for geography. The children love it! We have been reading one chapter a day, and they are always asking for more. We will definitely be coming back to this one later, to read more slowly and savor it. It is the stories of seven little girls, found all over the world. It tells about their culture and their families, and what they do for fun and work. I cannot recommend this book highly enough as an early elementary read aloud.
I have just found out that Jane Andrews also wrote a history book, “Ten Boys who lived on the Road from Long Ago to Now”.
