Our Curriculum- 2011-2012

As I visit with other homeschool moms, this question always surfaces, “What curriculum do you use?”  Well, for me, this list is ever-changing!  I tend to be a little ADHD when it comes to choosing curriculum!  But, my style stays the same.  For the most part, we follow a mix of Charlotte Mason methods and Classical methods. For more about the differences between homeschooling methods, check out 100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum: Choosing the Right Curriculum and Approach for Your Child’s Learning Style

This is an example of our “typical” learning process:

  1. Introduce a topic with memory work.
  2. Find a book (or two or three or ten) that matches the memory work.
  3. Continue drilling the memory work, while “making it real” with living books.

As you look at my curriculum choices, please remember that they may be different tomorrow!
