How we have our children learn together
Julie from Indiana says:
"All the reading is wonderful.That's what we like about TruthQuest History so very much. I'm ever so amazed at what my kidlets retain. We will read a book about someone and then his name will come up in another book. You should see them perk up and say, 'Hey, that's so-and-so! I remember him!' It is wonderful to sit on the couch with them and read, read, read."
Lisa from Tennessee says:
"Last year I switched to TruthQuest History and plan to use it next year too. (It is more fun for me!)...My oldest two daughters...will end at the end…but the other kids have had to jump in the middle. We have dealt with this a variety of ways. My third and fourth daughters spent weeks listening straight through the set of American history tapes we have...[which] gave them enough background to handle jumping ahead. I can't tell you how often they say, 'Oh, yeah; that was on such and such tape.' With my boys who are seven and nine, I have given them a brief overview of history with short little books...I will often review with them in an extremely concise way. When they need background for an event it is a good opportunity for the other children to review what they have learned previously..."
Lyn from Nebraska says:
"One thing we do is to record me reading all the TQH commentary and the read-aloud books so that Dad, and now older kids with jobs, can hear what we’re studying and our discussions. Our dinner conversation often involves our current history readings"
