We read the historical fiction according to how it falls with the history lessons. The literature books I fit in around the historical fiction. I typically just look through the books and try to schedule the more challenging books towards the end of the year and the easier books at the beginning of the year. If you are doing Explorers to 1815 feel free to shoot me a message using our contact form and I’ll send you a list of the order we’re doing the books this year! 🙂
Bradley is 9 years old and age-wise, he’s going into 4th grade, but he’s been working a year ahead in literature since he began reading at an early age. My 5th grade literature book list is based off of the Veritas Press literature recommendations.
