Ancient World History Book List – Part 2
Hi again !
Thanks for coming back.
If you’ve been following along with my Free Ancient World History Curriculum posts, you may like to check out the book lists for each section. These books are NOT required for the studies… they’re just my favorite resources (most I’ve personally used). You will find the few required books for the curriculum included on each plan’s page (start HEREfor Plan 1).

I am a good mom.
Say it out loud with me!
Did you find that hard to say? I did.
Did you find it even more difficult to really settle it in your heart without a steady stream of accusations floating through your mind? What?!? You didn’t wear your baby? You didn’t potty train by 2? You’ve had to rewash the towels 3 times because you can’t remember to put them in the dryer? AND your 9th grader isn’t taking Advanced Calculus this year? 😀
Yeah…still…You ARE a good mom.
Why is this such a hard bunch of words to speak and believe about ourselves ? Truly, I don’t know of a more loving, giving, hard-working group of ladies than the mamas that I am blessed to know. We may all have very different parenting styles, and a different set of goals for our families and ourselves, but one thing we all have in common…We love our children very much.
And love covers a multitude of sins !
I AM A GOOD MOM. Practice saying the words aloud to yourself till you believe them…then share them with a friend.
I read a lovely blog post today written by Danielle, a mom just like us. If you’re in need of some encouragement, or know another mama who needs a reassuring word, read this post and pass it along!!! THE DO’S AND DON’TS OF BEING A “GOOD” MOMfrom Today’s the Best Day
The LORD is close
to the brokenhearted
He SAVES those who
are crushed in spirit.
EXALT Him with me !
Let us MAGNIFY His name together !
I sought the LORD
and He answered me
and He delivered me.
The eyes of the LORD
are on the RIGHTEOUS
and His ears are attentive
to their cries.
TASTE & SEE
that the LORD
is GOOD !
Let our souls BOAST in Him.
EXALT Him with me !
Let us MAGNIFY His name together !

Ancient World History Book List – Part 1
(Ancient Civilizations and the Old Testament)
I can’t think of a better way to bring history alive and make it meaningful & memorable, than with great books ! Curled up reading about the adventures of a child living in the shadow of the ancient pyramids or cooking up an ancient recipe for an afternoon snack for “History Class” has to be one of the best parts of homeschooling !

Homeschool World History Plan A Chronological Study
(Teach all ages at once !)
Are you planning to study World History this year ?
Do you want to be able to use the same curriculum for ALL your kids?
Don’t know where to start ?
If you are writing your own curriculum or units, the task can be a bit overwhelming.
There are just so many topics to “cover”, and if you’re like me, they’re all so
interesting (and important!), it’s hard to narrow it all down and decide what to include !
I thought it might be fun and helpful to share our Chronological World History Outline (The Ancients through the Middle Ages). My goal when I wrote this out was to see how all of the events and civilizations studied have fit into God’s sovereign plan to extend His Kingdom and purpose. We therefore started in the book of Genesis and went through the history of “The Middle Ages”. It was amazing as we studied through these major points to see how all the stories from the Bible that often seem disjointed, fit together with the history most of us learned in school !
Initially, it might seem like a lot of work to put together a year’s worth of history study at once, but the goal is to go through this same general outline 3 times by the end of high school, just with more attention to detail and in greater depth….AND you can use the same outline for ALL ages at one time! Just tailor the reading materials and objectives a bit and VOILA ! Being able to teach ALL your kids at once is definitely worth the time ! It is quite easy to also incorporate corresponding literature, science, art, geography, etc if you use this outline as a spine. It actually made planning out all the other subject areas a piece of cake ! I will be posting details of how I did that and what resources I used.
As we studied, we each kept a 3-ring binder- our ‘all in one place’ time line.
We filled it with notes, coloring pages, drawings, print outs, etc… each page with a date on the bottom (or at least stuck in the appropriate “period” of history). 😀 In planning out our year, I also included biographies of important leaders, great artists, musicians, authors, scientists, etc. as applicable, and added them into the binder as well.
Scroll all the way to the bottom for some pictures from one of my children’s binder.
Under each heading, I included my objectives for each “section”. Everyone will have different expectations for their kiddos, but I hope it is helpful at least to get the creativity flowing !
