As Olivia leaps. Nicholas turns to the more practical task of opening the boxes,
We are using Sonlight for our curriculum. I knew that I wanted something structured and pieced together, since I am not confident yet in my ability to put together a curriculum, and I do not have time to do lots of prep. Heck, I barely get dinner on the table.
Also, Sonlight is a unit-study that is literature-based. This former English-major (and Charlotte Mason follower) loves that. The books that Sonlight has chosen are really wonderful. The unit studies enable me to teach all of the kids, even at different grade levels, at once. For example, this summer we are all studying world cultures (Core A) and in the fall we will start American History (Core D). I still do individual work with each kid for reading, writing, and math, but that only takes 20 -40 minutes per kid. ("Only," I say with a wink -- when you do the math, I come up with: 4 kids x 20-40 minutes + 1 toddler = trouble)
So far so good.
