I have the stuff they left behind portfolio for Genesis-Deuteronomy but I am thinking a page spread of pictures would be good for my small children to look at while I read the Lambert book. Would the Oxford book be good for this? Would kingfisher’s ancient history be just as good? Any of you know of a good picture book of ancient history?AmandaParticipant
We are doing the Genesis guide right now (3 boys, ages 10, 7, and 6) and I haven’t really found the need for picture books other than the ones listed in the guide. When a reading is about one of the portfolio pictures, I leave it out on the table so the kids can look at it during the reading. I also add in drawing lessons from Draw and Write through History Ancient history. I’ve found that having them draw some of the things/ people that we are learning about is really helping them create mental images when we read.RoslynParticipant
My oldest will be 6. How does your 6 year old do with the drawing? Thanks for the idea the book looks interesting.AmandaParticipant
He does amazing with it. I am always surprised with how well he is able to follow the step-by-step instructions for the pictures. I don’t make the kids do any of the copywork from the books though. We only use it for drawing instruction.
