Ambleside Online Old (2011) Year 3 36-Week Schedule

The week's reading can be divided up in whatever way works best for your family. Some students prefer sticking to one book and finishing a chapter in one sitting. Other students find it hard to focus for too long on one book and need to break up each week's reading over two days or even into five short daily segments. For that reason, we offer suggested reading for a

Week to allow parents to break that down into a tailored daily plan to fit their individual needs.

To this book schedule should be added daily penmanship, phonics, and math, as well as weekly nature study, art, music, and handicrafts. Correspond history readings with a timeline or century book and map. This PR article on Book of Centuries, as well as other PR articles about history, may be helpful. Foreign language may also be started.

Suggested Additional Books for Free Reading
Parents should explain to students that historical fiction, while often well-researched, is still fiction, and contains the author's ideas of how things might have happened.
