Review by Sisters of the Faith

Our homeschool adventure has already seen its share of lackluster curriculum and things that were simply just not a good fit.  History was one of those areas that challenged us.  We became a little frustrated with finding things that kept the people, places, and things from running together.  How would I keep it exciting, new, and accomplish a level of retention?

Enter A Kid’s Guide to Drawing the Presidents of the USA.  My DD learns best by doing.  She absolutely loves to draw.  In f act, she was wants to be an artist.  What better way to engage her than through art!  We received, How to Draw the Life and Times of James A. Garfield.   The book begins with a brief summary of Garfield’s presidency.  The following sections in the book each include about a page and a half of information regarding specific periods in the president’s life.  At the end of each section your child will recreate an image that is symbolic of that period from the president’s life.

The instructions given to recreate each image presented in a detailed, step-by-step format.  The images vary in their complexity throughout the book, so there is something for all skill levels between the pages.

Although a glossary is included, a general knowledge of the branches of government, the electoral process, slavery, and the Civil War is necessary for younger children understand some of the material.   Additionally,  it may be a good idea to have a detailed timeline on hand as you read through each section (there is a timeline in the back of the book too).   Overall, I think A Kid’s Guide to Drawing the Presidents of the USA would be a  superlative supplement to a more expansive U.S. History curriculum.  Best of all, the entire curriculum, which includes 42 books, is available on Timberdoodle.com for $195.00!

You can find this and other history at Timberdoodle.com.  Stay up to date on upcoming promotions and exciting new curriculum by “liking” Timberdoodle on Facebook.

    Hi Teacher Mama Tina!It’s great to meet another teehcar mama on the web! My eldest, Gaby, is in first grade under Victory Christian Homeschool, which is accredited with DepEd. Last year, I enrolled her at The Master’s Academy (TMA). We started homeschooling last year, but my eldest is the only one “formally” enrolled, as per DepEd requirement for grade-schoolers. Her siblings (at preschool levels) are all being homeschooled informally. Our curriculum is a hodge-podge of materials which we chose upon the recommendation of other homeschool moms, research and availability. My basic criteria is if it works for Gaby and me, then it’ll work for the rest. So far, so good though I had to make minor adjustments based on each child’s learning style. Thanks for visiting this site! Your comment gave me a much needed wake up call to update it 🙂 hahahaha!Am enjoying your blog posts too, and learning so much from them 🙂 God bless you and the kids on your homeschool adventure!
