I wanted to give you a couple of resources that came to mind when I was listening to Episode 11. Jim Weiss has a CD called Women in Blue or Gray: True Stories from Both Sides of the American Civil War. I know you said you weren’t likely to get to the Civil War this year, but you should check it out for next year. Also don’t forget his other CDs. My daughter loves the Masters of the Renaissance CD.
I bought a disk at a small, local homeschool convention that is a giant document with tons of literature organized by time period. A homeschool mom put it together over 8 years with her 4 kids. I liked the idea that it was a homeschool mom doing her own business and that this would last me all the way through high school! It has religious resources on the list, but a lot that are not as well. The Ancients alone is 13 pages long and the other time periods are longer. I know it is something I could put together myself, but I like it when work is already done for me. lol
Thanks for all the information and resources! I love all the new ideas!
Thanks Amy! We’ll have to check out those resources! We love when you guys share resources with us too! We are always looking for more neat stuff to share with our kiddos! I will definitely be checking out that cd!
I didn’t know that Jim Weiss did the Civil War, thank you for that!
