I’ve decided that our
mornings Symposiums are missing Social Studies. I know history is considered a social study, but with our love of living books I decided we needed another idea added to our Morning Symposium Slow Loop in order to fit in the long list of books I want us to read and some more varied richness that I feel our week is missing.
I’ve been surprised to discover how well even the younger two are doing with chapter books during our morning time. So
Morning Symposium Social Studies will follow that same theme, but I expect we will have more “short” stories on our reading list for now.
Its been on my heart to include more mission and cultural diversity into our weeks, that being said this will be a great time to include some early American historical fiction books as well. Picture books are great for this and are definitely included into our Books & Blankets time, however I really like the idea of making more of those connections and having them slowly looped into our mornings. I expect this will have a domino effect and should naturally spill over into our Hands On time more regularly to.
These are just a few of the books on our reading list, the ones that are a collection of short stories will be sprinkled between the longer books.
- Adventures in Other Lands
- Fifty Famous Stories Retold
- Peeps Into China Or: The Missionary’s Children
- Brave Explorers Every Child Should Know series
- Jungle Doctor books
- Seven Little Australians
- Little House on the Prairie collection
- Ten Boys Who…
- Ten Girls Who…
- Colombian Adventures
Or some mornings I will make it really easy on my self and use Stories Around The World instead.
