I know many of you like to keep things on the simple side. I do too. However, I have learned that my daughter truly learns best through hands on learning. Even if it’s just a relevant coloring page. Module 1 has been such a struggle for us because of all of the listening w/out any doing. (Background: She has sensory processing disorder, anxiety & ADHD and she is 7). I am close to throwing in the towel and trying Story of the World since they have the activity book but, since I have invested in all of the books to go with Module 1 (for a 1st/2nd Grader) I REALLY want to find a way to make this work. So if anyone has sources for hands on activities and/or relevant coloring sheets to share, please let me know. Or has anyone tried using the activity book from Story of the World alongside the SCM Modules? Thanks in advanced!curlywhirlyParticipant
My 5 & 6 yos have the Dover and Bellerphon coloring books for Ancient Egypt. Both are good, and they enjoy them but the Dover book has a a couple pictures with some apparent nudity. They like to color in them when I read any of the mod 1 books.sherazParticipant
The following link has a post from Andream that is full of ideas that link the SOTW activities and chapters to the SCM lessons. She had posted lots of hands-on ideas to help her children. I think that it would be helpful for you. It’s down the list of replies so be sure to really look for it.
Old Testament Days: An Activity Guide by Nancy Sanders is listed in the post by Andream and is explained in another post further down.
Here is a link to more hands-on ideas:
If you visit National Geographic and/or YouTube, you can find all kinds of free videos about pyramids, mummies, and more.
If you google “ancient egypt hands-on learning activities” there are tons of books and blog posts about it.jmac17Participant
Have you tried active methods of narrating? My daughter likes to draw pictures about the stories she is listening to. She then narrates by telling me about the pictures. Acting out a narration or using puppets or modeling with Lego or playdough or toys are other options.
Thanks so much for all of the great suggestions! I am definitely going to get the coloring books and I also found an Old Testament coloring book too. Not sure why I never thought of doing a search for them. I think it’s great that Andream shared how she lined up the SOTW activities with SCM. I think I may try to line up my own activities first before investing more money into the SOTW books. Crossing fingers that all of this works.missceegeeParticipant
Check Hands and Hearts History Kits, we used one on Rome and I think Egypt in the past. This last year, we found a pyramid excavation kit, a make a mummy kit on Amazon. The pyramid one was a big hit. You can google making a fruit or chicken mummy, too.Kathleen MarieParticipant
I really like these Bible paper dolls.
Thanks everyone! I am praying I can make this work. Not gonna lie… Some of this stuff bores ME a bit (or overwhelms me) like in Pharaoh’s Boat when he gets into talking about all of the details in the making of the boat…I find the amount of information I’m reading to be a little overwhelming and at that point, I knew I had lost her interest as well. She was engaging and asking questions when I was reading about the Pharaoh himself and the Egyptian people and their “weird” beliefs (as she called it). So, I’m left wondering, do I plow through and keep reading this book in it’s entirety, or skim over the minute details of the boat-making and keep the focus on for whom it was made and why etc. or skip the book all together? I really hope I’m not the only Mom who is struggling with this issue. :/anniepeterParticipant
I believe Charlotte Mason herself said that some books were to be read in their entirety, some for particular selections, and some just “tasted” (my own interpretation obviously:-). I would just taste those parts for this child. Now if you have a child like a couple of my boys, those may be the most intriguing parts and you may have to read them slowly so they get it all to put in their drawings:-)
Haha, I did not think of it that way. I could definitely see my Son (who is only 2 right now) getting more into that book than my daughter and I. Lol
missceegee, sadly, they are no longer selling the Hands & Hearts kits. I’m sure it would have been a great solution for us.
