The King's Daughters and Other Stories for Girls is used for the character study in Training Daughters to Be Keepers at Home book. It is character stories from another time period. So far the two stories we have read instill that chores are a pleasant part of life and that they help lift our spirits and make life more enjoyable. There are several stories in the book and it is also available as a free download on Gutenberg. The stories are about 7 pages long (when copied and pasted into a word document) and simple to understand with nice line drawings throughout the story.
One box of books has arrived and I've spent a lot of time trying to decide what I still need to order. Today, I ordered the Living Books Curriculum Grade 5 Teaching Guide. I ordered the instant download so that I could begin looking through it to see what I still needed to purchase. Many of the books for Grade Five are available through Rainbow Resource, while others are available at my library. I'm also trying to use the Bluedorn's Teaching the Trivium Method. The two actually mesh more than you might think, even though Teaching the Trivium is a classic style of home school. For your convenience, I'm listing the books available through Rainbow Resource that are required in Grade 5. There may be more, but I didn't check to see if they had books that are available at my library.

I am mama to 5 sweet and busy children ages 4-19. I currently am teaching 1, 7th, and 9th grades using Tapestry of Grace with swirls of Charlotte Mason elements throughout. When I'm not teaching, I'm chasing my 4 year old, or climbing Mount Washmore, or spending way too much time on Pinterest and not nearly enough time cleaning house or doing laundry.
