Hideaways in History Guide
The “Hideaways in History” Guide
The “Hideaways in History” Guide schedules two sets of resources in this one, easy to read guide: one set of resources for Kindergarten, and one set for students in 1st grade. It also schedules the resources common to both sets, making it super-simple to school a range of ages. The schedule is based on a 4-day week, which leaves one day free for extracurricular studies, field trips, co-op, doctor appointments, or whatever else in your “real life.”
You’ll love the clear weekly schedules and helps in this Guide. The Guide also includes activity ideas, advice on teaching and grading student work using Charlotte Mason ideals, website links, as well as a rating system and supply lists for activities and experiments.
This guide pulls together the resources to study all of world history. Each day’s lesson is focused on engaging your young learner and giving them a good overview of world history. Topics are chosen to be of interest to your little ones. They’ll be guided through history by three fun little bugs: Sticky the Spider, Chirp the Cricket, and the adventurous caterpillar Indiana Sticksenstones. These three little insects travel through time and get into some fun situations, making it easy to learn right along with them!
