I think some of them will be on your book basket list, either way? My son was at the end of 6th/beginning of 7th during EX1850. He doesn't like to read, so I never pushed him & he might have been more like a 4th grader in that way. LOL he went from reading Narnia in ps 2nd grade back down to reading Nate the Great in homeschool 3rd, in an effort to get him to enjoy reading again...thelapps wrote:Exploration to 1850 is out ahead a ways. We are finishing up CTG and I have been studying RTR in preparation for the coming school year. Now I'm looking ahead to Exp to 1850. We did not do Adventures and by the time we get to Exp to 1850 I will no longer have 2nd or 3rd graders. I am wondering if anyone else has had this happen? Would you purchase the supplement or leave it? It looks like some interesting reading even for fourth graders. What do you say?

At that age/reading interest, he read these from EX1850 supplement:
Squanto, Friend of the Pilgrims
The Courage of Sarah Noble
Sarah Whitcher's Story (I read this aloud since I wanted to know the story)
These from Adventures:
Mountain Born (not sure he finished it)
Patriotic Songs CD
These from 1850MOD he had already read, but they would have been fine to him:
I had the others but they were all were too young for his needs.
