Q + A Friday - October 2018

2018 - 10.23.2018 - Q A Friday - October 2018 - Thumbnail

  • What do we use for meteorology and history?
  • What is my opinion on the Boxcar Children book series?
  • How do I lesson plan?
  • How do we structure Read Aloud time around our house?
  • How do I handle homeschooling while having guests over?
  • What books would I recommend for a 7 year old that likes Geronimo Stilton?
  • How long is our typical school day?

All of these questions are answered in this month’s Q + A video.  Let’s dive in…

Here are links to some of the things that I mentioned in today’s video…

  • Meteorology Unit Study

We are using this one from The Good and The Beautiful as our main spine.  We are also reading lots of fun read alouds + using other supplements for my older children.  I will try to do a video in the future of our favorite resources we are using as we study weather + the atmosphere.  .

  • History Unit Study

We are using both America the Beautiful + Our Star-Spangled Story from Notgrass this year as our American History spine and again we are adding in lots of living books + literature selections to go along with our topics.  We are loving the Christian focus that this curriculum offers. 

  • Learning History + The Bible Chronologically

We love to use these lesson plan guides from  Simply Charlotte Mason.  They also have geography scheduled in there also, but we choose to do geography once a week during our Morning Time (which is a loop of subjects that we cycle through each week).  If you would like to read a good article on how these guides are set up, how the history cycles are broken down, and what made this approach so appealing to me, you can find that here information here.

Book Series Recommendations For the 7 year old that likes Geronimo Stilton


Please make a note that I made a mistake about the Boxcar Children book series.  The first 19 books in the series were written by the original author Gertrude Chandler Warner.  I said it was the 1st 8 books.
Sorry about that!!

I also forgot to mention this in the video but yes, I do plan to share all of our curriculum picks for the 2018-2019 school year coming up in the weeks ahead.  If you have any more questions for me or topics that you would like for me to cover in the future, please leave a comment below or feel free to contact me privately
