    Thanks for that link to the yahoo group for Truthquest . I know that will be very helpful. I was a bit overwhelmed when I received the book and it wasn’t all spelled out for me. :)

    Your list is great and I hope to use some of the free sites you have posted. Is the notebook page for Zoology 2 the same one you would buy in binder form? I haven’t purchased that set yet, so I am hoping that it is.

      No, it is not the same. I was looking at the purchased one online last night – the notebook pages are different and it looks like it includes the discussion questions for the book. The free one is only notebooking pages for all of the assignments in the book.

      BUT there are lots of different printables for the questions available in the Yahoo group files. I can’t afford the journals, so cobbling it together works for me!

    Stopping by from the NBTS Blog Hop. I was reading through your list, saw you like free stuff and it made me remember that one of the game sites we do has a set of games for How to Kill a Mocking Bird. I looked up the link for you… http://www.learninggamesforkids.com/literature-games/kill-a-mockingbird.html … this site would be great to add to your free stuff. We use it all the time! Looks like you have a great plan for your year. Best of luck.
