These have been added to our booklists, 36-week schedules and exams. The entire schedule is also outlined on this page:

Are these changes *also* in those new, lovely, printable, chart schedules for Years 1-6 ?

No link handy, but I think I found them on gutenburg.org. There are several different ones, for different years. Long's is there, too, I believe. I downloaded them all in kindle format.

I don't believe they are at this moment since these changes just happened & the Auxiliary member who had been doing those is without a computer for a short time (naughty computer!). It may take a bit for those to catch up.

You'll probably need to print out the schedules that are there and pencil in the geography concepts for the first term. It could be awhile.

Can I just say I love the "Team". The little exchanges. The way you encourage each other. <3

Also, am I missing something regarding the "links" they are linked at the AO page linked in the first post right?

I so very much appreciate your work. I'm sure I will be even more thankful as we actually begin Year 1. But thank you. Thank you. Thank You!

This is great; I just happened to finally print out the first 6 years' curriculum plans today and noticed the geography notes; I didn't realize they were brand new! I feel much better about covering geography.

Any opinions on Long vs CM geography? Do people use both or do they overlap?

There's a good bit of overlap, but CM's was the first of a 5-part series, so she might not have intended it to be as exhaustive as Long tried to be (just a guess). The next books in her series cover England specifically.

Both have really short "lessons," so using both wouldn't be overwhelming at all. There might be lessons that would get redundant, though.
