Re: Time lines with young kiddos

*I* think it's easier when you start at the beginning. So do many "experts" and educational philosophies. Many recommend doing history in a chronological order and starting at the beginning. Though, most also say you can start anywhere as long as you go in order....like if you have an older student studying modern times, you don't have to start at ancients with a younger child and do two different time periods. You would just do Modern with both and then start over again the following year with both.

My kids understand that everything has a beginning and so in the context of history, starting at the beginning makes sense to them.

Re: Time lines with young kiddos

I did what saxon math instructed me to do. counting up and down by 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, and so on. and my son actually liked it. it takes some time for him to remember certain multplication facts like 7s.
age 6-7.

i might have covered it here and there briefly, and they have seen it, and understand it.
i don't recall making a fancy time line.
