First, I want to share something with you all. A while back, I was asked to be a part of Home Educating Family's review team. I was pleased as punch and jumped at the opportunity.
I'm excited to be able to contribute to HEF's mission of helping other families find homeschooling resources that best fit them. Not only have I been able to host some awesome giveaways this month, but an earlier article I wrote on Thanksgiving last year was featured on their blog today!
Now, onto the review!
We have always included literature in our studies, but as our kids have gotten older, I felt it was time to do a more comprehensive study of what we were reading. After doing quite a bit of research, I decided on Drawn into the Heart of Reading, one of Cathy Duffy’s 100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum. You can use this program with multiple children for grades 2 through 8, and the format allows for you to reuse it every year. The program is comprehensive enough to use as a complete reading program, which I found sufficient, or you can supplement with another reading program.
The unique part of Drawn into the Heart of Reading is that it doesn’t have pre-selected literature for you to use. You can tailor the activities to you or to your child’s interest using your own chosen books. There are nine units in all, covering biographies, historical fiction, mysteries, non-fiction, realistic fiction, adventure, fantasy, folk tales, and humor.
