Folk Songs and Hymns 2020-2021

This year, I decided to look through historical folk songs to help coincide with our history topics for the year. There are too many to choose from when looking at 1800-1900 just like there are too many books and resources to choose from in order to spread a feast! We'll be happy with what we are able to cover! The hymns are mostly from last year's Ambleside Online list. I found the YouTube channel "folksandhymns" late in the year and want to utilize her beautiful recordings in our school year this year! I hope she continues to publish this year! We may stay a year behind just to take advantage of her wonderful recordings!
