    I am unclear on how to organize the History/Geography/Bible modules. Is it to say that you only do one module per year or all 6 in one year over and over?

    I have 4 children that we are considering home school with; grades 1,1,4,6.

    So would they use the modules like this every year?

    Grade 1 students:

    Module 1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6

    Grade 4 student:


    Grade 6 student:


    Then, when my 6th grader is in 8th grade and using module 2 they would follow the grade 8 section – reading ‘Hittite Warrior’ and studying Joshua-Malachi in the Bible?

    Am I looking at this right? A little confusing to me since this is new to us.

    You select one module to do per year with all your children studying that same module, just using books in their grade section. The easiest way I’ve found to do this with all the children combined is to use the younger students’ books as read-alouds to the whole family, then assign the older students to read their corresponding books independently as additional work.

    You can start with any module you like. Some of that decision might be influenced by which time periods the older students have already studied.

    I guess, in a nutshell, select a time period first then look at the books listed within that time period as they relate to each of your students’ grade levels. Does that help?



    Yes, that is great. That is better – I thought that I would be teaching modules 1, 4, and 6 at the same time. This will help – I had read something like that but I didn’t quite understand it that way.

    Thank you!

    Still, my 6th grader will be doing 7 modules and if we want only repeating one for him.

    Thanks again,
