I started reading this book yesterday and thought that it would be something that my dh would love. Sure enough, I went to bed last night and he was reading the book! For those of you that don't know, my dh isn't the biggest supporter of our hs - I mean, he would be, but he's not supportive of our unschooling/laid back hs ways currently...<br><br>
Has anyone used this as a guide to their hs? What does your day look like? What do you recommend to start?<br><br>
My daughter is entering fourth grade this year. How do we start her in the middle? Ideas?<br><br>
Things you like about the book? Don't like?<br><br>

If you are Christian or Christian tolerant there is a very helpful curriculum out on the market that combines Classical with some Charlotte Mason. It is called "Tapestry of Grace" and they have a website.<br><br>
I personally follow a Waldorf method mixed with Charlotte Mason until around 5 or 6th grade. Then I start using some of the Classical approach. The "Well Trainned Mind" and i firmly disagree in the younger years. But there is some really good stuff in there.<br><br>
One thing I have found si that it really appeals to dads.
