1. I agree – the part about history was very freeing for me, too. We approach our SOTW history pretty much the same way. I really need to get my kids memorizing more dates, though. I feel that they have a rough idea of where things all fall into place, but I want it to be exact for them. We have stopped on Martin Luther right now and will delve into him a bit before moving on.

    I have learned so much from reading The Core!

  2. We just started history for the very first time this morning. I made a very simple timeline for my 4 year old and we put the days of creation on there after reading the text in the Bible. Our plan for this year is to read a lot of books that will lay the foundation of understanding the flow of ancient history. I would do good to remember what you said about subject matter taking a back seat to skills in the grammar stage. Thanks for another encouraging installment of your bookclub and for sharing it with us at Trivium Tuesdays!
