We are currently in Omnibus II with a 9th and 7th grader. I also have a 5th grader--for him I read Mystery of History volume 2 aloud. We did this last year, also with Omnibus I and MOH vol. 1. I didn't premeditate it, but I am so glad that we have the MOH to supplement. Everyone ends up listening in and it has given us more of a framework on which to hang the wonderful literature from Omnibus. The two books coincide very well together. My hopes for MOH vol 3 to be available next year as we enter Omnibus III.
Last year we met together informally with one other family. This year we have a group of 4 other families to meet together for lit discussions. We don't meet weekly, but usually at the end of each lit selection. Sometimes we do an activity from Omnibus, or discuss certain questions together. I wouldn't want the group to be much larger. This week the kids are making a powerpoint presentation out of a character in Bede's Ecclesiatical History. My sons are really enjoying themselves and digging in.
We have also used audio books, when available--all three of my boys loved listening to the Odyssey, Aenied, Beowulf, Julius Ceasar, Antigone--an absolute rich and wonderful curriculum. Not to mention the secondary books being Narnia and Tolkein.
