The Golden Goblet

So, The Golden Goblet as suggested by Sonlight was a bomb with my Grade 5 student.  He really did put some effort into it.  We really were able to come up with some well-versed educational conversing…but I’m just not going to pressure him to finish it.  Some books are worth it.  Some books are not.

So far, I’m not impressed with Sonlight .  There is a lot of busy work and running around.  There is a lot of hurrying through the really good stuff.  Anyone want it?  I think it’s going on Ebay soon.  I really want to love Sonlight, but I just don’t.   This is the second time I’ve tried their curriculum.  But, it’s not a good fit.

Still sticking with The Story of the World for History though.  And, I’m so happy I purchased the preprinted student pages.  They really help us keep in line and give a nice landing pad for our History days.

Archaeologists Dig for Clues

Just catching up on some of our books we’ve read for our first section of Story of the World.  This is a great little book for younger students.  It’s a picture book and it fueled discussions with my 7 year old.
