Hi, I have three children I'm doing TOG with. My middle child is 9 years old and this is our first week of doing TOG. He's reading the UG history selections and I'm curious as to how other moms do history discussions with their kids. Do you just sit and have them narrate their history core or in-depth books to you or do you just use the lapbooks that TOG provides to see what info they're learning, or are there other methods that you use to judge what they're learning? With my 8 year old LG student, I'm reading his history selections to him and asking him questions as we go along. With my dialectic 11 year old, I'm using the questions in the Student Activity Pages. I'm having my UG boy do all of his history reading alone because I just don't have time to read daily with him.
Thanks so much for any help you can provide!
