- We will use Bookshark’s American History 1 instead of Sonlight’s Core D. They are virtually the same thing, with just a few differences. I already own Core D, so it was just a matter of getting a new Instructor Guide and a few more books. I would not have bothered, except that I wanted to update my Core anyway in order to use the revised Landmark History spine.
- I was going to use Bravewriter’s Partnership Writing, but decided I wanted something more streamlined. Instead, we will do Writing With Ease Level 3.
- I was going to use Sequential Spelling, but decided to stick with the recommendation in The Well-Trained Mind. He will do Spelling Workout instead.
Basically, I am just trying to simplify my decision making process with these changes. There are so many options out there it can be extremely overwhelming to settle on any one thing! I have decided to stick primarily with recommendations from The Well-Trained Mind and Sonlight/Bookshark unless I have a good reason not to. More on that in my next post!
