We were offered the opportunity to review the latest title in the Storytelling Schools Series which we have been following and reviewing since the first book in the series was published. This one is published on August 1st 2016 so we were very excited to have a preview!

 

This book focuses on History, which we won’t be covering for a while yet with The Bundles as we are taking a relaxed approach to academics until age 7. It does, however provide an ideal opportunity for me to get refreshed on all things History in order to bring it to them when we are ready!

I really like the storytelling approach to teaching, I’m a big story fan and I think this approach really engages children and brings the learning to life. If you are unfamiliar with the Storytelling Schools approach, this book has the first chapter dedicated to explaining the approach and a guide on how to use the book.

Each chapter in the book focuses on a different historical time/event and comes complete with a story, tips on telling the story, songs, ideas for ‘Ways to Work with the Story’ and extensive information on other areas of the curriculum that can be linked to the story.

This is a fantastic new resource which I would highly recommend to other families, it’s certainly an invaluable one for the home ed bookshelf. You can get your copy here  🙂
