I have been sooooo feeling this lately....

Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
From the publisher, we received a paperback copy of the title - Benjamin Rush - The Common Good . The chapter book is well printed, and sturdy. Caty is not always the most gentle with her books. She carries around her current books interests in a bag that gets dragged all over. She falls asleep with the books while reading them also. So for this book to still look as though we may have just received it, is saying a lot.
All of this material is easily presented in a way that you can use it with multiple learning styles. One way we made an adjustment was for Caty and I to review her comprehension questions orally, instead of writing her answers. She struggles big time with writing, so I knew that even though she knew the answers, she would not be able to put her thoughts on paper and would be frustrated. We changed these to an oral review. I would assign her chapters to read (which she didn't follow since she couldn't stop reading it...lol) and then I would review the comprehension questions from the study guide with her. We worked on the printable maps together and she has been reviewing important events of the American Revolution.
The Study Guides that you can purchase to go along with the stories are excellent for all ages and all learning styles. They are packed full of ideas and activities that really help your student to experience history and bring it to life for them. I love the fact that I can print the materials that I choose to print, thus saving paper. I leave the PDF opened on my laptop and we just read it off the screen as we were working.
Several members of the Homeschool Review Crew were given the opportunity to review various titles from YWAM Publishing Heroes of History and the Christian Heroes series. Click on the link below to read how they used this series in their homes and what they thought of it.
