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?

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...

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)
Farmer Boy
Patriotic Songs CD

These from 1850MOD he had already read, but they would have been fine to him:
Stone Fox
Charlotte's Web
Encyclopedia Brown

I had the others but they were all were too young for his needs.
