I’m getting ready for the start of the new school year and so I’m trying to spruce up my school room. Last year, I showed you what my room looked like and directed you to my favorite part…the timeline.
I’ve learned that my kids do better with pictures than words, so I have changed the writing on my timeline to some easy to remember pictures instead.
I printed out pictures from most of the events that we have studied and then laminated them.
I posted them in chronological order on my timeline.
The new look is much more kid and memory friendly. I hope it helps them remember the events and the order in which they occurred. We are using The Mystery of History to study history in a chronological way…it really helps me put things in the proper order.
You can check out all my other curriculum choices here.
this is a great idea! I didn’t really understood much of history until I was a grownup and studied it on my own and make sure to pay attention to dates to keep it all straight.
hope you have a wonderful school year!
I like the way that the dates look almost like license plates! Very cute! I learn better via pictures as well. Your kids are lucky!
What a great idea! This would be great in a traditonal public school social studies classroom as well. What a smart lady you are. so many of us are visual learners.

Neat idea to use pictures. I'm sure my kids would like that as well.
This is great!

love this – pinned it and shared! I have a recipe link up on Tues (open all week) if you'd like to join us sometime- we are using cooking as part of our homeschool curriculum!
Wonderful idea. Seeing it everyday would really help cement those events in our children's minds,and mine 🙂
