Homeschool Week ~ Friday


Randi request today is that we discuss one of my favorite topics “What curriculum do you use?” Maybe it would be easier to say, what don’t we use. We mainly use mostly the classical/Charlotte Mason approach with some workbooks but mainly for my 1st grader.I will be teaching 5th, 6th, 1st, and a 3 year old this year. My goal for my 4 & 5th grader is for them to learn to self-teach. We started our new school year in June. I don’t always go in order of the curriculum and we don’t always complete everything that is suggested.

  1. Just wanted to say I will be visiting your blog again.

  2. Wow, you have a wealth of resources in your list there. I love the Drawing with Children book. I just never had the discipline to go through it with my kids. I still look at it every year and think, we should work on that this year.

  3. THANK YOU! For listing the link for reason for writing.
    I’m very curious about it. We’ve had many tears from Mini-Me over our ABeka writing program. They pack A LOT into one work sheet. and we have to do one per day if we want to stay current – so I think she’s behind in her cursive. Despite explaining that it will help her write faster. She really doesn’t see the point of it all. *L*

    If we still have problems, I may take her to this program. So thank you again!!

  4. You know what one of my favorite handwriting books has been? Draw Write Now. My daughter, who loves to draw, begs to do her handwriting although she hates handwriting.

    Now that I’ve gotten a peek at them, you’ve just GOT to post your links!
