Wattle Gum Homeschool: Booklists
The first two booklists covers Australian History in chronological order from our First Peoples through to today. They use quality picture and chapter books.
Australian History/English/Geography Stage Statements/outcomes of the NSW and the Australian National Curriculum are met through using this year long program.
The Mega Read Aloud list is a compilation of our own family read alouds from over two decades. It includes rich literature and precious memories.
Booklists Supplementary: Our Sunburnt Country
Our Sunburnt Country by Arthur Baillie is a ‘core’ Australian history book for 7-12 year olds.
It will take one to two years to complete this study, enhancing children’s understanding and knowledge each time period of Australian history, by supplementing each chapter with living books.

Wattle Gum Homeschool: Videos
For the past seven years I have participated in the Australian Homeschool Summit. My talks have centered around various aspects of literacy.
Kelly Kotanidis has kindly allowed me to share all of those talks with my members here!
The other speakers at the Summits are certainly worthwhile checking out too.
