How is the Basic Package used in Resurrection to Reformation?

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 the Resurrection to Reformation Introduction, so why don’t we have a quick look at that?

(From the Introduction to Resurrection to Reformation):

Storytime
Daily storytime sessions are linked to the “Reading about History” box of the plans by similar historical time period. These books provide the historical backdrop, 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 as a Basic Package, or sold individually, at www.heartofdakota.com.

The following activities rotate through the “Storytime” box of plans and coordinate with the read-aloud assignments: orally narrating, finding vivid descriptions, locating new vocabulary, identifying plot twists, recognizing strong moods, copying great lines, and watching for life lessons. Students will record their answers on index cards. Depending on how large students write, they will need 12 or more index cards. We suggest placing the cards on a ring for organizational purposes.

Note: If you are already doing a Storytime package with a different Heart of Dakota program, you may choose to have 5th-6th grade students read the books in this package on their own by following the plans in the “Storytime” box. These students should be strong, independent readers who aren’t overly sensitive. Otherwise, reading aloud is the preferred method for using this package.

Use coupon code MARCH-LIBRARY to save!

To apply this month’s savings, just enter coupon code MARCH-LIBRARY on our website when you check out! We hope these books will be as treasured to you as they are to us!

Have a great rest of the week!
Heart of Dakota

    1. Hello Ericka! As students reach 5th and 6th grade, content becomes more mature (i.e. in the Viking series, Bree is kidnapped by Vikings). I have found Carrie has done an excellent job of choosing read alouds wisely. However, every child is different! You can read the book descriptions to see if there are any topics you think would be better for you to read aloud to your child, so you can discuss things they may be more personally sensitive to for whatever reason. We are currently in Unit 27 of RTR for our third time with our third son, and we have not had anything in the Basic Package too sensitive for any of them. However, I am still reading them aloud to this last son, not because I am worried he is too sensitive, but just for me for fun! Here is a link to the book descriptions…
