Catholic Charlotte Mason Homeschool – Year 2 – Term 3
We’ve finished our Year 2 of Ambleside Online. As with the previous years we added a Catholic twist. Here’s our recap of term 3.
Being Charlotte Mason homeschoolers, language arts is said to be included in the dictation part of our day. However, in making our homeschool work best for myself and more importantly our kids, I have added in a bit of grammar and language arts along the way. Because I believe in having a bit of a deeper look into language arts I was excited to review Eclectic Foundations Language Arts Level C.
Math, it’s beginning to be a favorite subject in our home, but there are always ways to make it a bit more exciting. Especially with the memorization of facts. We are in the midst of learning multiplication, so the opportunity to review Times Alive from Times Tables the Fun Way was a great fit for our curriculum.
Over the past year, I’ve found myself turning off the radio and putting on a podcast. Driving has been the perfect time for me to just sit and listen. There are a quite a few podcasts out there to weed through, but these are my favorite at this time.
As a Catholic family, it’s important to us that we have good resources for our children that highlight our faith. There are many Catholic books out there, but these are a few of our favorites right now.
