I personally love teaching history to my kids.
It was one of my favorite subjects in school and just came very easily to me. My kids enjoy the read alouds, the discussion, the hands on projects, and timeline building.
History really is a highlight in our homeschool week!
But as the years have gone by, I’ve started to find it more and more difficult to carve out the time to do age appropriate history with all of my girls.
My littles need me every minute for reading, math, and writing, and my oldest will tire of waiting for me to get to her.
I want to do ALL the things…but I also don’t want to do school for 25 hours a day.
Can you relate?
Are you worn out with teaching all the core work and find it difficult to find the energy to make history fun and exciting?
Do you have a bright, independent learner who is ready to soar with more autonomy in your homeschool?
Veritas Press History might be the perfect thing for your homeschool!
What is Veritas Press?
Veritas Press is a Christian online homeschool curriculum that offers self paced classes for history!
These are NOT your stale, prerecorded lessons that you have probably seen before.
Veritas Press offers a dynamic media presentation that will engage your kids through historical characters, games, and songs!
Here is what the Veritas Press Website says parents can expect from their self paced history classes:
– Have one less subject to teach
– Don’t have to grade any assignments
– Can see their students progress at all times
– Have kids that are excited to learn
– Free up more time in your day
– Have so much fun they don’t know they’re doing “school”
– Can work wherever there is internet access
– Progress at their own pace
– Enjoy review that is as fun as a video game
– Will master what they are learning
How Do Veritas Press History Lessons Work?
First, you need to pick from the following Veritas Press History options:
Or these US History Options:
Veritas Press recommends that you start with Old Testament & Ancient Egypt in 2nd grade and then continue through the curriculum to 6th grade.
But you can absolutely start wherever your child is interested, and your child will definitely be engaged and challenged.
Second, you will need to buy the Veritas Press Flash Cards that go with the course you chose.
That is the only physical item that is essential to the course from day 1. There is an option for a digital download of the flashcards, but they have a watermark on them and would be pretty expensive to print.
Third, set your kid up with their account and let them go!
Expect the lesson to be around 30 – 45 minutes. There are enough lessons to fill 5 days a week for 32 weeks.
Is Veritas Press History Really Independent?
Veritas Press History is as independent as you and your child will let it be.
All the lessons are taught for you and all quizzes/tests are graded and recorded for you.
But you know your child best. Your child may want you to sit with them, read through some questions, and discuss the lessons.
I’m kind of crossing my fingers that is true with my kids!
