Our Curriculum 2008-2009

Our Curriculum Choices for 2008-2009
Lulu is in 3rd grade this year, Monkey is in 2nd grade, and Lil is in Preschool.  We will be using Ambleside Online for our History, Literature, and Poetry readings.  I want to implement more of Charlotte Mason's way of doing things.  I really hope to do more nature study, artist study and composer study.  What changes I have made so far the girls really seem to be responding well to.

Updated 1-31-09:  We are having such a good school year.  We are really enjoying the readings from Ambleside.  I feel inadequate at times with what we do.  But I know we are progressing and I hope to do even better next year.
