Great Books


I just finished placing my book orders from Overstock.com

and Christian Light Education. (We use Christian Light for Math

and Language Arts and love it!) With most of the curriculum

details are finished, and I am excited for fall! So what was in my

book order? I mainly ordered good read-alouds, since I prefer to

have those on hand, and Christian-oriented biographies not

available at the library. Most of the selections are from

AmblesideOnline Years 5/6. We will get all of our additional

reading books at the library, using TruthQuest AHYS III for

suggestions. Let me know what you think!

Whew! I am glad that we are basically ready for fall. I will get
to have a planning-free summer!

How is your fall planning and curriculum purchasing coming along?

I enjoy seeing how you work out your schedule following the CM method. I am currently struggling with ours right now, but I think my problem is that I'm just trying to do too much. I think it's time to get realistic. :)

We have completed our orders but I'm tweaking plans. I've never purchased on Overstock. I need to check that site out more.
