Because of the vast amount of books (Ah, the wealth of the public library and Amazon!) for our studies this unit, I’m only putting out two weeks worth instead of the usual four. This was met by much lamentation from my eldest two, who do not believe “too many books” is possible to achieve. It will be good for them to pace themselves a bit instead of gobbling it all at once.
In the next two weeks we are studying the Erie Canal, Chopin, Louis Braille, John James Audubon, The Cherokee Indians, Hans Christian Anderson, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Jackson.
