This last year of learning was a time of experimenting, not so much in choosing curriculum but in getting it to work in a multi-level homeschool. Our son went from a one year old who once sat playing with baby toys, to a busy two year old who runs around all day and wants to join in learning time at the table. I feel like so much of our energy was spent managing sibling interactions and keeping the flow of school going. All in all though, we had a productive year and I’m excited about our plan for 2014.
Those of you that have been reading my blog for a while know that we lean towards a Charlotte Mason and Classical approach to our homeschooling. So our curriculum choices reflect this. I love the order of Classical learning, and also the hands-on ‘living’ approach of Charlotte Mason learning.
So here are the resources we will use, bearing in mind that much of our learning takes place beyond even the best of books and resources. I couldn’t possibly list every learning opportunity, nature walk, outdoors trip, and teachable moment!
Let me know what you think!
