*half way through the year, we tossed all curriculum, and started "unschooling." the boys have
a grammar workbook, math-u-see, a geography workbook, and spelling that they do daily.
we are basically using the Charlotte Mason method of schooling these days.


2014-2015

this year, we are taking more of the Charlotte Mason Method approach. we will cover all of our subjects, but will do so in time increments, rather than trying to cram so much into one day. the boys will spend no more than 20-30 minutes on each subject in the mornings. and in the afternoons, we will be exploring art, nature, music, crafts, and homemaking skills, as well as reading the Bible and a chapter book out loud, followed by independent reading.
  • Apologia Zoology 1 + 2
  • Story of the World vol. 3 + 4
  • Math-U-See

*** in october 2014, we made the decision to place the boys back in public school. the decision did not come lightly, and it is what is best for our family at this current time.
