This post is part of the Meet My Homeschool series, highlighting the beauty of variety and individualism in homeschooling. Schools often strive for standards, but homeschools don't thrive that way - they thrive in authenticity, based on the needs and interests of the family that's learning together! Enjoy this peek into a real homeschool. Let us connect over our similarities, and marvel at our differences!
Charlotte Mason first presents us with her most important idea - that children are born persons. They’re full, whole, people right out of the gate. She then says…
"They are not born either good or bad, but with possibilities for good and for evil."
This is our first year of formal lessons now that we have a first grader! We are following the Charlotte Mason method for the most part, but there are some times where I just do what feels right for us. During our week you will see short lessons, narration, living books, a wide variety of subjects, and lots of time outdoors.
For our first official year of homeschooling, we are using A Mind in the Light to guide us through Year 1 of a Charlotte Mason style education.
