Our Homeschool House 2013-2014

Our Homeschool House

My Desk

On the table…

And on the floor

Dining Room and Living Room double as our “School Room”

The boy’s room is where everything we studied that day becomes creative play!

(Even the girls end up in the boy’s room!)

Our whole house is our “School Room” which makes it our Homeschool House!

Do you have a Homeschool House or a School Room?  I have had both and I prefer a Homeschool House.  How do you feel about your homeschool space?

A Journey Through History, Reading G.A. Henty’s Literary Work in Chronological Order

GA Henty

 

G.A. Henty’s books are at the top of my list for must read historical fiction, but with over 90 of them it’s a daunting task to know where to start and how to align them with what you are studying. I wanted to read through all of them with my children as we follow the classical model of studying history, so I wanted to know what books align with what year in history. For that purpose I created a chronological listing of his books. Please join Noah’s Ark Homeschool Academy on A Journey Through History. We will be starting in the Middle Ages and cycling back to the beginning.

A Journey Through Time with G.A. Henty

 

This is where you can get his books

You can also buy the collection in either hard or soft cover from Robinson Books

This is where you can download his books for FREE!

Blank Centuries Around the World Timeline Pages

*(Print front and back only one time period at a time, then print an extra page of the last page in each section)*

*As you can see the timeline pages are divided into 5 sections.  I left them blank so that you can label them any way you want, but I do have a suggestion.
In whatever order you would like, I would suggest to label the divisions into these groupings: (wars, conflicts, politics), (notable men, and women), (art and music), (religion and philosophy), and (discovery, Inventions, Technology). *
