AO Year 6 Term 1

Updated-- Evidently, I was not finished selecting Mariel's books, because I had to make some changes today.

Here is Mariel's list of books for the first term of the new school year. (It might be helpful to note that math and writing/grammar programs are not listed on these lists. These are just book books.)

(Also, I am not including our family Bible reading on these lists either, because it isn't quite solidified. We are beginning at Genesis again for the Old Testament, and will read a Gospel for the first term, perhaps Luke and then Acts. Triss does her own Bible reading on the side as well, and Mariel is working on that habit. Since individual Bible reading is a personal habit that should be continued outside of school time, I don't put it on the list.)

Story of the World Volume 4 by Susan Wise Bauer
What Everyone Needs to Know About the 20th Century (excerpts)
Trial and Triumph by Richard Hannula
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor
The Story of David Livingstone by Vautier Golding
Jungle Pilot by Russell T. Hitt
School of the Woods by William J. Long
Christian Liberty Nature Reader 5 (continued)
Galen and the Gateway to Medicine
The Sciences by Edward Holden
Albert Einstein and the Theory of Relativity by Robert Cwiklik
Poetry of Robert Frost
Age of Fable by Thomas Bulfinch
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls (changed my mind and will substitute Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain-- she'll still read the Rawls book for free reading)
The Taming of the Shrew by Shakespeare
Plutarch (tbd)

And, yay! We own or can access for free all of these books, too. Gotta love homeschooling on a shoestring. :O)

Would you mind sharing about your writing/grammar choices. I will be doing AO 7,3/4, and 1 this year. My biggest concern is my oldest and writing.

Sure! I'm still feeling my way through regarding writing skills, so I don't know how much help I will be, but can give you my ideas. I'll post something in the next couple of days.

Thanks! I'm always looking for ideas and opinions.
