This year is our first year homeschooling. The “meat” of our curriculum comes from Build Your Library, a secular and literature based curriculum that is inspired by the Charlotte Mason style of teaching.
Included in the curriculum your purchase are a wonderful collection of narration cards for your kids to draw or choose from. My kids really love Minecraft, Legos, and Playdoh, so I’ve created 20 more cards to go with the ones included in our Build Your Library curriculum.
I print mine on bright colored cardstock and laminate them. Then I cut them up for the kids to choose from on days we’re doing narration.
These could be used separately from the Build Your Library curriculum. They’re straightforward enough to be used in any homeschooling environment. Simply have a child do his daily readings—or you read to them—and then draw a card. You might get:
Build your favorite character’s home in Minecraft.
It’s fun and helpful to have discussions before, during, and after these kinds of activities to help build on what the child heard, remembers, learned, feels, thinks, etc.
