Breaking down why we use the Charlotte Mason method with A Gentle Feast curriculum for our homeschool and how we adapt it to fit our needs. I share what materials and rhythms we have for our Charlotte Mason homeschool. I am not a purist, but we like to abide by many of Mason’s principles in our home.
Check out Our Daily Homeschool using Charlotte Mason’s methods and inspiration!
Here are materials we use for our Charlotte Mason Homeschool:
To start, we have our morning time bins! We actually do these during lunch. This works well for our family. The children do their individual work, as best they can, and then we come together for Bible, Poetry, History, Science, Read Alouds and the like!
Bible & poetry memory: A Gentle Feast Morning Time
Christian Missionary History: Hero Tales
A Gentle Feast (this is Course Book 3, which is American History 1800s)
Geography: Tree in the Trail
Literature: At the Back of the North Wind
