This past year I have been on a journey. Learning about other styles of learning. When we began homeschooling 5 years ago I bought the Abeka Academy DVDs. They were a great fit. Our daughter loved watching and learning. That lasted until about 1/2 way through Kindergarten. When my preschool son began the videos he hated it. Everyday was hard. But we kept going. After lots of research I began to learn more about classical education. I loved the idea!
Lately, we read lots, and lots of books. I devour the Charlotte Mason blogs. I am always on the lookout for books and book lists. I let the kids read what they want ( within reason ). We still use the Abeka readers, arithmetic, history, science, and health. I don't have it all figured out but I have loosened up very much. The kids are enjoying learning. Our day is not perfect and we still have our moments. I just want to encourage moms! You can home school and you can enjoy it!!
A book that was a real blessing was Debi Pearl's // Big Book Of Homeschooling //
I will try to share some books we have enjoyed. In the meantime google classical reading list by grade. You will find lots of great ideas.
