I was going to write a post about the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling, but good news! Somebody already did it!
Here’s a great post about Charlotte Mason in the Secular Homeschool. I plan to mostly use this method, although I will use some textbooks (I think they’re fun textbooks!) for kindergarten at least. My big post about our curricula is coming soon — really soon, because we start homeschooling next week!
