We are just a few weeks away from finishing up the homeschool curriculum that we have been using and I am trying to make a few decisions about what to do after the baby comes. I may have mentioned this before but in the end I haven't loved the curriculum. There is so much busy work/worksheets. Obviously, my background in early ed was in a play-based classroom. I want to enjoy teaching the girls and at this point, I think Norah and I both dread the table work. I have done TONS of searching for other activities that fit with the theme, but don't require us to sit at the table. I have cut out a number of the worksheets and made games that teach the same thing - just more fun. It is interesting to me because My Father's World is supposedly a Charlotte Mason style of teaching, but the more I read about Charlotte Mason, the less I see the connection. Maybe I would see it more with the older grades.
