    This is good to know. We are on an extremely tight budget this year, but I didn’t want to forgo the reading because of it.

    Do you know of year 1 audio links listed somewhere?

      Yes- on the AmblesideOnline website for year 1- the website was recently updated to add them. Look carefully on the page, and you will see that some resources have a Greek symbol that looks like tiny headphones after the title of the resource. That means there is a free audio resource available- click on it, and the link will take you there.=)

    I love this list for Year 2. I am brand new to AO, this will be my first yea implementing the program. I love the detailed organization behind this forum, website, all you mama’s are incredible. I have never used Audio books before. I am nervous they won’t be as “good” as reading. Do I still do narration with them? What are some thoughts or feedback some seasoned AO’s moms’ have with audio books. I would really like to count on them as part of my curriculum since our budget this year for school is smaller than we were expecting. Thank you so much!
