My kids CANNOT seem to write small enough or neatly enough to read the maps once they’ve been labelled. So, I grabbed my pack of labels (10/sheet mailing labels) and made printables for them. For 5GRD, each label is the stuff the child has to write names, numbers, and letters for that week. For sixth, there are two labels that repeat six times, and appears once on the 5grd labels since I had room and needed one more set.

The child just cuts the words apart and sticks them where they are supposed to go.
These are the first ten weeks. I will add more to it later.

I have been fooling with this timeline for days. I thought I just needed the figures I posted, but NO. It’s still not nailed down enough for me. So here’s my version using the 92-page book:

DAY ONE

1.  Set up your book like I did in this post.
–Print out the Egypt images.
–Print out the “Timeline for Ancient Egypt” (or copy from your syllabus).

2.  Put the lines on spread 7-8 an estimate some tickmarks for BABEL-2000 BC.
–Cut out the “Old Kingdom”, “First Intermediate”, Abraham, and “Middle Kingdom” statements from the “Timeline for Ancient Egypt”
–Also cut out the following figures: Menes, Sphinx, Pepi II, Abram, Mentuhotep II

*For the first day, I did all of the steps up to here.  I put the images/instruction#3  in one baggie and the statements/instruction#4 in another.

3.  Above the line, paste the following images at these dates:
–Place Menes at 2815, Pepi II at 2181.
–Pick a color for the old kingdom and shade the line between the two dates.
–Paste the sphinx somewhere in between.
–Paste Mentuhotep II at 2040.
–Pick a color for the 1st Intermediate Period and shade between him and Pepi II.
–Paste Abraham at 2100.
–Pick a color for the Middle Kingdom and shade from Mentuhotep to the end of the page.

4.  Write/paste the statements below the line in the following order:
–Old Kingdom statement about Menes
–2181 Death of Pepi II, 6th dynasty and last good pharaoh of the period, begins the First Intermediate Period.
–First Intermediate Period statement.
–Abraham statement
–2040 Mentuhotep II, 11th dynasty, is the first good pharoah since Pepi II, begins Middle Kingdom.
–Middle Kingdom statement.

–Cut out the Joseph, “Second Intermediate Period”, Hittite and “New Kingdom” statements.

1st

More fruits of being stuck in bed.  It occurred to me after doing the KGRD schedule that I had ignored the Book of Virtues readings for 1GRD-2GRD when I did those schedules last year.  So, rather than rewrite both, I just made supplements.  My schedules for those years is four days a week, so these […]
