Ambleside Online -- Year 5

As part of my school planning I take the Ambleside Online weekly schedule and hotlink all the online sources that I plan to use right into the schedule. I like to post this somewhere accessible from whatever computer I happen to be schooling from at the time, so I figured here on my blog would be a great place for that.


This schedule is not something I put together. It is taken from the Ambleside site and then I merge their listings and delete a couple things I don't plan on using and compile it into the one list that records what we actually will cover this year and gives us the links to get there all in one place.


In the next week or two I will post a couple other compilations of resources I plan to use in our upcoming school year for our artist and composer studies as well as some other odds and ends. I have gotten as far as thinking about them, but haven't put it all together yet.


This is what my older two students will be using for the History, Literature, and Science. We will also be working through Apologia's General Science book, so I might occasionally skip the science listed here, but I kept it on for now until I see how quickly we get through all the material.

Hope this is helpful to someone as well.

I'm not doing Charlotte Mason, but we're using This Country of Ours, too!

We're miles behind you, though - on ch. 3 (Columbus) this week, LOL!
