While I know there's been "Charlotte Mason-inspired" curricula around for awhile (MFW, HoD, etc), it seems to me there's been a small explosion of more faithful interpretations in the last couple years. It would be helpful, at least for me, to see a list in one place. I'll list those that I know of here, and if anyone can add more, please do. Also if you have experience with any of these, please post your thoughts. Ambleside Online - the grandaddy, uses many older books, they also have CM's writings viewable for free Simply Charlotte Mason - this one has been around a little while also, good for combining different ages The Alveary - from the Charlotte Mason Institute Wildwood Curriculum - non-faith-based A Mind in the Light - by a poster here on the WTM forums, has some classical influence A Gentle Feast - this one includes plans for Morning Time and poetry teas A Modern Charlotte Mason - includes modern books and internet links along with traditional selections Ursa Minor Learning - this one readily admits that it is not pure CM, but I thought it interesting because it is only high school levels (for now), and has a stronger focus on science and math
What does this mean to you? It's been a year since this thread: http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/527887-anyone-up-for-a-philosophical-discussion-about-teaching-from-a-state-of-rest-re-circe-discussion-and-how-it-is-interpretedapplied/?hl=%2Bschole Anyone care to continue the conversation? The spirit of the concept sometimes gets lost in popular interpretation, and it's easy to get distracted by preconceived notions, but scholÃ© does seem worth pondering.... What does it mean to you in the high school years?
Well, it's been a long time since I've been here! Good to be back. Our 2 oldest have graduated, married (both this summer!!) & now we've got littles to educate ;0) 1 year old, (new) 6 year old & 8 year old. I'm thinking about doing a semester more of kindy w/ the 6 yob & starting 1st in January. 8yog is solid third although math always needs more help! Has anyone tried to combine this many different styles?? The notebooking/narration part of the classical approach using SOTW that we did with our older ones is very similar to Waldorf's (somewhat) unit study approach to Main Lesson Books, although my brain needs workbooks for spelling, most of math, & handwriting (sorry about that sentence, not even gonna correct it bc it's too late at night)! We'll be on SOTW book 3 this fall but I really would love to encorporate the Waldorf studies of gardens, shelters, fiber arts & Native Americans. Any ideas welcome!

Hi, I'm new here. Right now I'm looking for a Spanish language arts curriculum or guide for 2nd grade. It is as a first language, English is our second language. I can't believe it's so hard to find something good! Is anyone in the same situation? Thanks!
