So we decided this year to do Early American History since we will be relocating to Maryland just after the new year, there are so many great historical sites on the east coast. I wanted to be able to take full advantage of being out east, we aren’t sure how long we will be there.
I discovered this great Charlotte Mason based History program that I’m really excited about starting. It’s called Beautiful Feet Books, and though they do not have a lot of choices for Elementary, they have what looks like great programs for Middle and High School.
They did, of course, have an Elementary program for Early US History. My oldest is 7. We don’t start our new school year until January.
Last year we used Pandia Press Ancient History I and loved it; we plan to return to their program when we start Medieval History in 1-2 years. They also have Early and Modern History curriculums and follow the Story of the World text for their level 1 programs.
Some other supplements we will be using:
