Easy Classical Early Modern History Schedule ~ Review

Photobucket

As part of the Homeschool Crew I received a digital version of Easy Classical Early Modern Age History Schedule to review.

About Early Modern History Schedule

  • Intended for grades K – 6
  • 106 pages
  • Cost:  Notebook version $35.95 or Digital version $29.95
  • Includes day by day lesson plans for 36 weeks
  • Easy reference list of icons used in daily schedule
  • Schedule includes list of suggested curriculum choices, book list, and materials shopping list
  • Includes sheets to enhance learning (step by step how to draw sheets)

The schedule was structured around the recommendations of Susan Bauer’s book The Well Trained Mind: a Guide to Classical Education at Home.  It is adaptable for kinesthetic, visual and auditory learners.  The weekly schedule covers history, writing, geography, projects, read aloud books, and a quiz.

My Thoughts

I am a very visual person so I was immediately impressed with the way in which the schedule is laid out.  It includes a list of all the curriculum items and books and a separate list of supplies needed during the year.  Everything is in one place so I can print out the lists and check off the items as I purchase them. 

The weekly schedule is broken down Monday through Friday and then broken down by each subject, making it easy to see what daily tasks need to be completed.  Monday is typically when a new topic is introduced, so that day has a good bit of reading to do.  The nice think about the schedule is, you can change it to fit your family and each child’s attention span.  Our family loves to read so we wouldn’t have any difficulty completing the assigned reading.  At the end of the weekly schedule is sticky note of the items you will need to purchase for next week ~ once again a great visual!

Overall, I think the schedule is thorough, easy to use, and includes some awesome curriculum suggestions!
