How is the Basic Package used in Preparing Hearts? 

Well, we could tell you, but why reinvent the wheel? Carrie and Julie have already done an excellent job of outlining how these books are used in Preparing Hearts’ Introduction, so why don’t we have a look at that together?

(From the Introduction of Preparing Hearts for His Glory):

Daily storytime sessions are linked to the “Reading About History” box of the plans by a similar historical time period. These books provide the historical backdrop for each time period, or a panoramic view of history, while the “Reading About History” readings provide a more factual view. These scheduled read-alouds are highly recommended, unless you need to economize. Complete listings and book descriptions for these books can be
found in the Appendix. These books are sold as a set in the Basic Package,
or sold individually, at www.heartofdakota.com:

The True Story of Noah’s Ark by Tom Dooley
Tirzah by Lucille Travis
Classic Treasury of Aesop’s Fables by Don Daily
A Triumph for Flavius by Caroline Dale Snedeker
Fountain of Life by Rebecca Martin
Viking Quest I: Raiders of the Sea by Lois Walfrid Johnson
The Door in the Wall by Marguerite De Angeli
The Wonderful Winter by Marchette Chute
The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson
Twenty and Ten by Claire Huchet Bishop and Janet Joly

Each unit includes the following activities in coordination with the
“Storytime” read-aloud assignments:
*Day 1: personal connections are shared that relate to the story
*Day 2: differences between the characters’ lives and the students’
lives are identified based upon the historical time period of
the story
*Day 3: the main character’s faith is evaluated for its impact on the
character’s life and the story
*Day 4: oral narration is practiced by retelling the story

Use coupon code SEPTEMBER-LIBRARY to save!

Have a great rest of the week!
