I'm trying to decide if I want to go with Guerber's Story of the Romans or begin reading On the Shores of the Great Sea by M.B. Synge. Synge would cover more than just Rome, but will that be too much to go along with the module 3 guide?
I'm using Synge and we love it. I find it to be just the right amount for my kids to digest ... the two in "school" are 8 (almost 9) and 6. I don't attempt to line each volume up perfectly to the mods, but instead we read a chapter or two a week, depending on how much I need to complete each year. :) Clear as mud? Let's see, I like Synge Vol 1 with Mods 1 & 2 up through about Chapter 40 (this is from memory as I don't have my book in hand), then with Mod 3 I am finishing up Synge Vol 1 and we will go through Chapter 11 of Vol 2 and dig into more living books to round out the weekly history studies since there won't be one spine chapter each week. Then, in Mod 4 (we're in Mod 3) I plan on Synge Vol 2 Chapters 12-29, again with lots of good books, and there are plenty with that time period. In Mods 5 and 6 I anticipate using Sonya's spines. Hope that helps a bit. Oh, AO has a rough schedule that incorporates some of Synge, though not as much as I do.
Awesome! I just took a look and it looks like it will work well for us to use with what we are doing right now. We are finishing up Module 2 so I am going to begin the Synge Vol.1 on chapter 19 to finish up our Greece studies and then keep going thru Vol. 2 chapter 11 as we study module 4. Whoopeee! Got it figured out now :)
