Here's what's new on AmblesideOnline's website:

We have filled out AmblesideOnline's Bible schedule for Years 1-12, updating it so that all of the AO Community (regular Years as well as Groups) is on the same schedule. You can see it (both the new and the old version) on the Bible subject page of our website. We are very excited to have this long-standing project completed!

We've also made a change with Year 5 (& 6...&7...&9...&10!). We've replaced "Christian Liberty Nature Reader 5" with Jeannie Fulbright and Dr. Brooke Ryan's "Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology." This book will be used for both Year 5 and Year 6.

So what will be moved from Year 6 to make room? It was always our intent to use Rachel Carson's "The Sea Around Us - Young Reader's Edition." But since that version is out of print and no longer readily available, we are moving (the regular version of) "The Sea Around Us" to be divided between Years 9 & 10, where we think it will be a better fit.

And what happens with students (now entering year 7, 8, or 9) who have already read "The Sea Around Us" for their Year 6? For those students, one good option is Rachel Carson's "Under the Sea Wind."

Be sure to check out our new Science subject page, which explains AO's science choices in the light of Charlotte Mason's educational practice and philosophy.

As always, know that we on the AO Advisory are praying for you and yours as you plan for the coming year, and we are sending along some virtual "jam to go with it"!

(Edited to add: Two things - 
1) We've not put Bible on a rotation like Art, Music, Folk Songs, and Hymns. "On the same schedule" means, for example, all Year 6 students (regular Years as well as Groups) do the same thing. We also filled in our Bible schedule, which was a project that had not been completed. If you wish to have your family/students all doing the same Bible schedule, pick a year to do together. Our overall Charlotte Mason-based plan for Bible for AO students is on the drop-down page on our Subject section of the website.

2)  The schedule for the Christian Liberty Nature Reader 5 will still be found on our website in the footnotes (for those who need it), as well as a schedule for Rachel Carson's "Under the Sea Wind" for year 6. (If it's not there yet, it should be later today or tomorrow.)

I hope that helps clear things up!
