WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING...
As a way to visualize history and put it in context, the Living Book Timeline is suitable for children of all ages. The cards can be used for games and activities other than on the Timeline. The pictures are realistic and a lot of thought has obviously gone into the setup. As a homeschooler of 6 kids and having tried a few different ways of recording history visually I am very impressed with this resource which will be a great addition to our home.
I’m a little more excited to get started with school than the kids are! .... I think this is going to help my twins who are much more visual and auditory learners. I am very happy with my purchase and think it’s a quality product - very reasonably priced. Mostly I love that the legwork has been done for me so we can just pick up our book, read, and paste the card.
Living Book Timelines has made the biggest difference to our history lessons. We have always read and narrated living books, but I could never shake off the feeling that somehow it was not ‘living’. This year my 7 year old joined my 10 year old, and it all went downhill. There were lots sighs and non-engagement during the readings, and hurried one sentence narrations. Even I came to dread it, because I could never remember the names of the kings or what numbers they were!
The timeline cards for 'Our Island Story" have been a tremendous help, I had always planned to print out the pictures but never did, We did a lesson on the War of the Roses, and the Timeline Cards really engaged my boys, especially as each picture had a red or white rose depicting which side they were on. Extremely helpful as I kept losing track!
This resource is what every time-poor home educator needs to present the unfolding of history in a visually engaging way.
My family and I love the living book timeline resources! It is an excellent quality resource that fits perfectly with our history studies. My year 1 student enjoys hearing the lessons story, narrating, then sticking the relevant person onto the timeline.
It is something that I would have made myself, so it is exciting to have it already done for me!
