I really wasn't all that impressed with the activity book. I also need to read through it and the book a little bit this week to try and figure out to break down teaching it...which things to do each day....I'm still waiting on our english package. It hadn't even shipped yet :(

There are a lot of great resources you can incorporate. The local library is a great resource, in particular. Some sites I've found useful include:

I went through chapter-by-chapter and decided what activities, books, videos and other resources we would use. A couple of weeks in advance, I review the info and place holds at the library. We usually do most of the reading, narrating, and coloring on the first day (we do history on Tuesdays & Thursdays) and projects and videos on the second day. If there is a more involved project I choose to include, we'll do that on Friday.

My kids are 6 and (almost) 9 and are really enjoying it.
