History for Annette

As I'm considering using Oak Meadow American History/English Syllabus for Annette, the more I think about it the more I would prefer her to use a program that was written from a Christian perspective. I still really like Oak Meadows writing assignments for history and may hold onto it for that reason.

I'm looking at using All American History Vol. 1 as her main text for the first part of American History. I like that it covers exploration to 1840's pretty close to what Joshua's program covers. It also comes with an activity book which is more like a workbook from Timberdoodle description. It doesn't have any Language Arts (OM Syllabus does) which is great since she will use something else. It can be fleshed out with the books from MFW Exp.1850 and the readers from OM.

I wonder if this reader can replace The Story of the World in MFW. My children have listened to SOTW so many times that they know it by heart (almost). In the back of my mind I have had the idea of replacing it but I didn't know with what and I did not want to rethink the schedule from MFW. The whole idea is to keep it simple! But..........if this lines up well with MFW maybe  SOTW can be switched with this book. I'll have to see. If it's too much trouble then I'll just stick with what is in the MFW package.

Annette's Bible will come from MFW Exp1850 and I had planned for her to use some of the books from MFW along with OM anyway, so instead of OM she'll use All America History.

With Oak Meadow, I was also trying to figure out a way to stretch it our to last two years. I wanted her and Joshua to have the same history time period. Another reason why I have been eyeing All America History.

  1. This sounds like a great plan, especially since you can eventually have two students working in the same time period.

    Let us know what you choose. I've had my eye on that one because we are going to be starting the SOTW/MOH schedule from Paula's archives. We'll see how that goes. :)

    I may end up liking one more than the other, but like you, I really want ALL of our studies to be grounded in the Word of the Lord.

    So far, I'm liking what I see with this schedule.

    I'm heading out to CBD for some samples on this one.

    Many Blessings!!! Missed you for a couple of days, but knew that you were really busy.
