I am excited to share our homeschool routine that we go through on a daily basis. We abide by the Charlotte Mason principles but really adapt those to meet our family’s needs as well as the needs for each of our children. I am not a Charlotte Mason purist by any means! Our core curriculum for the year was Cycle 4 of A Gentle Feast. This is the fourth in their history rotation. I absolutely adore this curriculum and recommend it highly to anyone and everyone!
I will share below what we use in our Charlotte Mason Homeschool, with links, so you can check it out for yourself!
Here is our core curriculum: A Gentle Feast. This curriculum includes A Living Approach: it is deeply rooted in the living ideas found in books, beauty and Biblical truth. It is gentle to both mom and child, while providing a firm academic foundation. It is Charlotte Mason Inspired: it is a feast of living ideas founded on Miss Charlotte Mason’s philosophy and principles. It is Family Centered: A Gentle Feast brings your family together as much as possible while still providing grade-appropriate material.
This includes the Charlotte Mason course book (teacher guide) and morning time plans!
