Our homeschool has evolved so much over the last two years. And heading into year number three I'm sure we are far from settling, it will most likely continue to evolve until my two no longer need my training.
After seeing numerous posts from my friend @rainesa and listening to a few "homeschooling" podcasts, one of the things we have been doing alot of recently is reading aloud and audio books.
We have enjoyed several of the YWAM biography series- "Heros of History" and "Christian Heros, Then and Now" over the last year. I love how they read like a story.
We are diving into C.S. Lewis next.....
So I thought, why not pull in some of his various works to read along with his biography.
We are going to mix it up with some read-alloud, audio books, and maybe a couple of the Narnia movies for fun. Throw in a little World War history and geography combined with a few snippets of C.S. Lewis's other works (literature), we have got ourselves unit study.
Fun fact: This set of Narnia books belonged to my husband growing up.
Edie Wadsworth @lifeingrace often talks about C.S. Lewis and how impactful his books have been on her. One she recently talked about in her Morning Mentor livesteam was "The Great Divorce". I'm not typically one to gravitate towards fiction for myself (although I do love reading it with my children) but I put this one on hold at the library, and I'm super excited.
Although, I wasn't much of a reader growing up, I'm really liking this little set up we have here in our homeschooling adventure. And, here is the thing, we all benefit from it. I learn just as much as they do.
So, do you gravitate towards fiction or non fiction? What are you favorite reads, for yourself or with your children? .
