I think that could be too much of a repeat. As anyone else had this problem? Are there other books that could replace those that will be repeated...mainly American Pioneers and Patriots and some of the storytime books.
I have a Kindergarten son that I would like to tag along so that is why I wouldn't put the 2nd grader in ECC yet. I think it may be too much on the 5 yr old and I'm really looking at ways to teach them together.
I haven't done Adventures, so take this with a grain of salt. But there are 50 states in Adventures, with book basket ideas for each, so I'd think that's where you could take up the slack. Plus a few presidents -- there's always more to read about presidents.
I also think kids don't remember everything, so there may be times where you'd want to read something again. But I'd expect that since Pioneers & Patriots is more of a storybook, you could just sub stories listed in the book basket list? Those book basket lists are all correlated to the topics/weeks you are working on, so it wouldn't be like you were planning from scratch.
Oh, and the "Ideas board" for Adventures will have even more books that different families really enjoyed.
Hope those are some possibilities,
