Howdy! I live in TX and wondered how many of the rest of y'all do, too. ;0)
Also, what do you use to study TX history? Favorite books? Field trips? And, how do you fit that in (assuming you are doing the SCM history modules). When our older three were younger we used the original version of My Texas http://www.ourlandpublications.com/catalog/my-texas-21-combination-set-p-56.html?osCsid=f908f43f24e1bd2fd46b50bc7fb774c7. But, it was much cheaper and I think I only purchased the newspapers. Alas, I lent them to someone who was never able to relocate them to return them for me to use again. (I read Homeschool library suggestions posted here and on the library egroup faithfully because of this type if concern.) When we used it, I read the newspapers aloud while the children "reenacted" the events with small toys, and homemade geographical TX terrain. (Read-construction paper, rocks, legos, leaves...). It was fun and they still remember the events. It was a living history situation because it is written in a daily newspaper fashion. I may use it as a spine two days/week instead of American history in module 5 as we've studied that quite a bit. 12/13 we are doing module 4, then 13/14 module 5. I have also considered doing this in the summer as a term. That would mean doing 2 weeks worth per week for 13 weeks. Just math and TX history. (we study math year round, even during breaks.
