I've been using the daily article with the whole family and then the weekly articles Carter does on his own. After he's read it we will talk about what he read and go over the questions. He's really liking it and I'm liking that some of the questions are to get his opinion and thoughts not just boring fill in the blank busy work. He asked if we could print them and he could save them in a notebook so later he could look back at what was going on in the world when he was young. What a cool idea!!
To be honest there are days I don't see or hear the news so reading these with the family and then talking with Carter about his has helped me stay more informed as well.
Take some time to check it out ;0)
