The G.R.A.P.E.S. of World History

One of the fears of not using a packaged curriculum for history is that there will be some holes in your timeline.

It can be a bit overwhelming for mom to try and decide what needs to be taught.

(Lists are available, but sometimes too many choices can be as bad as too few!)

As I sat down today to formulate a World History plan for the rest of the school year, I remembered a study tool that I bookmarked last summer.

G.R.A.P.E.S.

Geography

Religion

Achievements

Politics

Economy

Society

These categories make up the basic framework for studying World History.

Anything in addition is just gravy. :)

I created some notebook pages that will work for each civilization we study.

For the older kids, there is a page to fill out and alist of ideas for each category (to help little ears pay attention).

The younger kids will only have to draw a picture for each category.

Feel free to download these for your family.

I hope it makes your World History journey a little easier!

Groundhog Day Carols

My kids & I love to sing silly holiday songs.

Albuquerque Turkey has reigned as the favorite…until now.

I think a Groundhog Day Carol might kick it out of first place!

There used to be a website for these silly songs by Don Halley, but it is no more.

I searched through message boards and put together three pages of his songs for you to download.

Enjoy!!

{ Groundhog Day Carols}

Here is a little preview:

Wintertime
(Clementine)
© 1996 by Don Halley

In a tree trunk with a chipmunk
Hibernating for a time
There’s a groundhog who’s the top dog
On this day in wintertime

Oh my groundhog, oh my groundhog
Oh my groundhog, so sublime
Is it frost and cold forever?
Are we stuck in wintertime?

Dawn appears on the horizon
Out of bed he starts to climb
Tis the day to find a way to
Check the length of wintertime

Oh my groundhog, oh my groundhog
Oh my groundhog, so sublime
Is it frost and cold forever?
Are we stuck in wintertime?

Of forecasters he’s a master
He performs his craft so fine
Shadows mean no early spring so
Best get used to wintertime

Oh my groundhog, oh my groundhog
Oh my groundhog, so sublime
Is it frost and cold forever?
Are we stuck in wintertime?
