  Schedule Changes
Posted by: LeslieNoelani - 03-22-2017, 10:28 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (25)

We made a few changes to our schedules for Year 4, 5 and 6:

In Year 4:
Ocean of Truth/Isaac Newton was added (this is where he fits historically)

In Year 5:
Halliburton (or Hillyer) was scheduled at one chapter per week instead of two.
Passion for the Impossible was moved to free reading, and
Of Courage Undaunted and Carry a Big Stick were spaced out more slowly to fill in that extra term.
Alexander Graham Bell and GW Carver were spaced out slower to fill the term Isaac Newton vacated.

In Year 6:
Missionary Travels was removed except as an option for those who can't get Halliburton/Hillyer
Halliburton/Hillyer still starts in Year 5, but continues into Year 6, terms 1 and 2
Vautier Golding's David Livingstone book is scheduled in Term 3
School of the Woods was moved to free reading;
The Sea Around Us was spaced out over the whole year.
The Iliad moved to Term 2 so that The Odyssey could be added to Term 3.
We scheduled a retelling of the Iliad/Odyssey rather than the original.

The old schedules are still linked, and no new books were added (except The Odyssey, which has a free ebook option). It's more of a slight shuffling than a real change.

The grid chart schedules haven't been updated yet, but should be updated in the next day or two (thanks to Kathy!) Even after that happens, you'll still be able to access the old weekly schedules and their grid charts. The link will be at the top of the current (newer) 36-week schedule.

  Christmas Break 2016
Posted by: lklivingston - 12-13-2016, 12:46 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (7)

[Image: 1ea5b15bd438a60d1d31392cd6b95bb3.jpg]Dear AmblesideOnline members,

This is a VERY important announcement, so please read!

The AO Forum and Facebook group will take a restful Holiday Break beginning on Saturday, December 17. We'll re-open the forum again on Charlotte Mason's birthday, Sunday, January 1, and re-open our Facebook chat group on Epiphany, January 7. Thus, the forum will be closed to posting for two weeks, and the Facebook group will be closed for a three week period.

Why are we taking this break? The CM method is about more than homeschooling; it's about life and relationships. We would like our AmblesideOnline family of members, moderators, Auxiliary and Advisory to step back from lessons and computers, and take time to savor the holidays with their loved ones.

Should you need AO information during the break, existing threads will remain available at the forum, and of course the AmblesideOnline website will remain up and running.

We encourage you all to explore AO's special Holiday pages during the break!

The Advisory's Favorite Holiday Stories and Poems:

Holiday Carols and favorite CDs:

May you find time to reflect on the meaning of Christmas, enjoy time with those you love, and be refreshed as you anticipate the coming year.

We wish you a Merry Christmas!
