4th Grade Homeschool Curriculum - Classical and Charlotte Mason Inspired

We have begun another homeschooling year and so far this year has been my favorite year ever!

There have been years when I have basically gone with a 'curriculum in a box' type of approach, but as I became more comfortable with homeschooling, I was more brave to venture out and to be able to pick and choose for all different subjects.  So I wanted to share with you what is working really well for us!

The Morning Basket

One thing that I have done quite differently this year in our homeschool is the addition of the morning basket.   I attended the homeschool convention in Orlando, FL this year and went to every Charlotte Mason seminar I could.  I also attended an on-line summer class this year through Classical Academic Press called "Bringing schole´ to your School and Homeschool" with Dr. Christopher Perrin.  It really shifted my perspective on the kind of education I want my children to have (or child in my case since I only have one left in homeschool!)   Dr. Perrin challenged us all to share and teach others what we have learned so I'm doing that via my blog!
