I just wanted to take a moment to highlight the Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers’ sponsors this month.
First, I want to welcome our newest sponsor, A Journey Through Learning. They produce both generic lapbook materials for a wide variety of topics, as well as materials that work with many popular homeschool curriculum choices such as: TruthQuest, Circle C Beginnings books, Apologia, Maestro Classics, and Trail Guide to Learning.
We’re reviewing the lapbooking set that goes with the Trail Guide to Learning book that we’re using, Paths of Settlement. While not historically fans of lapbooks, the kids seem to be enjoying them so far and I think the lapbooks are going to make the kids’ end of unit presentations go a bit smoother next time because it will give them something specific to focus on.
I also have to confess that curiosity got the better of me. The symbol letting parents know that there is a corresponding lapbook activity appears so frequently throughout the Paths of Settlement book that I was curious to see how well the projects fit in with the lessons. Be looking for a review in May.
Right now, you can use the code WUHS25 to take 25% off your order from their website.
Next, I want to give a great, big, huge thank you to the folks at Geography Matters for letting us review Trail Guide to Learning. I was so afraid, when I agreed to review it, that it was going to be yet another history curriculum that I enjoyed, but the kids hated.
I’m overjoyed that we all love it! Just yesterday, Megan and I were talking about how we love the way it’s broken down into six-week units, so even though you’re studying the same general topic, each six weeks it feels like you get to start something new.
The six-week format is perfect for keeping things fresh – and perfect for those who have a six week on, one (or two) week off homeschool schedule.
Chautona Havig, author of the Annals of Wynnewood series has been the longest running WUHS sponsor and I hope she knows how much I appreciate her support. She writes wonderful, God-honoring books for both adults and children. Visit her site to view her collection of fantasy and inspirational fiction books.
I’ve got the final installment of the Annals of Wynnewood series sitting on stand-by for me to finish. I’ve got to get to it soon because I want to know Dove’s secret!
