For Squirt we will be using Heart of Dakota's Preparing Hearts for His Glory.
This is a program designed for students ages 8-10 with other added books which can extend that up to 11 or 12 (we are doing the expected 8-10 age group books). This year's study will give a broad overview of world history starting with Creation and ending in the late 1900's.
Preparing Hearts for His Glory Guide (PHFHG) is not just a Teacher's Manual. It is designed to be shared between the student and the teacher. It has Independent Work instructions written directly to the student.
This guide includes History, Poetry, Dictation, Spelling, Literature, Bible Study, & Science. It also has schedules for recommended Language and Math which are Rod & Staff English, HOD DITHOR & Singapore Math.
