Posted: Thu Dec 28, 2006 11:40 pm I've read posts elsewhere that recommend doing the Botany book in the summer due to its obvious nature.

Posted: Sat Aug 27, 2005 10:46 pm My ds also needed a little review for 2G. I simply used the 1st grade materials that I had to continue reading review. This kept the stuff he learned in 1st grade fresh in his mind. We took turns reading the Box Car Children series. I stressed reading with great ex...

History - Does CTG have mature content?

We are doing CTG this year, and I'm personally loving it. My question is addressing the nature of chronological history in that I'm beginning to wonder if ancient history is too much for my 8 and 10 year olds. I love the idea of living books, but I'm noticing that some of the content may be too much...
