Autumn Homeschooling

Autumn HomeschoolingBelieve it or not history was one of my favorite subjects when I was in school so I can really relate to Joy’s excitement about studying Early Modern History this year.

I just love reading Joy’s blog posts at Artful Homemaking and this one recently caught my eye and I just had to share with you hear. In it she talks about being thankful, scheduling, history, reading aloud, living books, picture books, baking, marble painting, and in the end everyone enjoyed s’mores… wow I just don’t know how she does it all.

We’re doing Early Modern History and loving it so much.  It’s just perfect that we’re studying the beginnings of American history and the pilgrims right now before Thanksgiving!  The timing is perfect, and there is so much that’s tying it all together, including educational videos, costumes, and wonderful books.
Everyone looks forward to read-aloud time, as they’re very interested in the stories.  At the beginning of the school year, as I was looking over the books we would be using, I actually wondered how it would work out.  Would this method of learning using a variety of “living books” actually work?  Would studying early American history alongside world history give us a comprehensive view of history?
