(I will continue to update as we work through these chapters and I find more resources to incorporate, as well as add pictures. Starting with this book,we also added vocabulary work to each chapter. At some point, I will go back and add vocabulary to the earlier chapters and books as well.)

Options for each chapter:

  • Read chapter
  • Answer review questions from activity book either written or orally (I usually write the questions in the notebook, leaving space between each for them to write the answers. It takes a little extra time to write the questions myself, but it helps me keep up to date with what they are learning and to know what to ask about.)
  • Vocabulary (I got this Free Vocabulary Resource Pack from Homeschool Giveaways to have a place to write the words and it has a few different page options to choose what you like/think will work best for your child.)
  • Map work from activity book
  • Coloring page from activity book
  • Pick a craft project from activity book
  • Timeline Entry or Timeline Cards (We stapled the printable timeline inside the back cover of the notebook and add pages as we need them by taping them to the last one. It will end up accordion-like.)
  • Chapter Lapbook pages (Credit- I found and downloaded the lapbook pages from a blog that is no longer online-Run of the Mill Family. I did not create these pieces and am not taking credit for them, but I still wanted to share them as a great resource.)
