Hi Donna,Donna T. wrote:Can anyone tell me what the children read for themselves while doing Adventures? Does Adventures include reading material for the child or are there suggested books that we would buy in addition to our Adventures package? I know we will get the NIVr Bible. Is that actually the child's reader or how is that book used?
Thanks for any info about this. I just need to know if Adventures includes reading material for the child. I'm looking at a set of readers that I am considering purchasing but I don't want to make a purchase that will go unused. If there is sufficient reading practice contained in Adventures then I'm not going to purchase any additional books other than the tons of books that we already have and library books.
Reading is scheduled every day in Adventures, but you choose the readers. There are some listed in the appendix in the back of the book, but if you have something you like you are free to use it.
We use most of the history readings as read-alouds, although if you had a very strong reader you could have him read them to you. The Bible readings aren't daily (maybe average 2-3 days/week?) and you can have the child read those to you. The passages vary in length--I have my 7yo read most of them but if its a really long one I will help her. I really like that she is learning to look up verses in the Bible with this book.
I am glad I made the switch--we start week 11 of Adventures tomorrow and are *loving* it!
HTH a little.
