What is your favorite homeschooling book?
The Ambleside online website has lots of good information about the Charlotte Mason method, but my favorite book about a Charlotte Mason education is When Children Love to Learn.
We do (or maybe I should say "I do," since the hobbits would rather not do any lessons. ha.) classical with the The Well-Trained Mind as a jumping off point. No way to we meet the rigid schedule but I'm satisfied.
I dabbled in Mason when they were younger but I never seriously pursued it. I am big on narriations though.
Also, my son is a struggling reader, so although he is in third grade, his reading level is more of a second grader. He's made great improvements this year, so I'm hoping he will get caught up this year.
Now we sort of make up our own as we go. My daughter is graduated and in college. :D The boys write an essay a month with three revisions. One does an intensive vocabulary study. They both study German and their level of math. I wrote the science curriculum for them for health and the human body. History this year is through reading real books and then discussion with mom. We are sort of on an in-between year for some of their requirements. We have used Apologia science curriculums and enjoyed them. Some years we share with other families, this year we are on our own. I love flexibility.
Next year, if I can talk my 8th grader into staying home for high school, I am considering designing a curriculum around his guitar studies and playing. English: lyrics/poetry, History of music. Not sure about science, may have to convince him that the more he is aware of the world around him the better human he will be, hence the need for Biology! Math is math. O.K, sorry to go on so!
