We just started using The Mystery of History and we are all enjoying it. My main students are in 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades and I wanted something we could all use together. It is nice for all of us to be studying the same period in History at the same time. We are also studying U.S. History at the same time. I'm using the series A History of US for my oldest student. He reads two chapters a week, narrates what he has read and then writes an essay on one of the topics from the book each week. I'm using A Child's Story of America as a read aloud with the younger students. I go to the Library every other week and find lots of resource books to go with our main books which the children can read during their quiet reading time.

For science Nathan is working through Apologia's General Science on his own and he uses Saxon independently for math. I read aloud from a science book to my younger students and they read books from our collection during quiet reading time. They have to write a notebook page each week on science which they mostly narrate to me as I put it on paper for them. The younger students are still learning their math facts so they do flashcards for math. My goal is to have the 3rd and 5th graders start Saxon 54 by June.

It feels good to be on the right track each week with school! How is it going in your homeschool? If you have any suggestions for High School History and English, bring it on!
