“Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life”
— Charlotte Mason
I love Charlotte Mason’s ideas on learning. She places a lot of emphasis on learning through quality literature, doing nature studies, and habit training.
“The mother who takes pains to endow her children with good habits secures for herself smooth and easy days.”

I try to implement her methods throughout our homeschool as much as I can. I have found a few resources that I really love, and want to share with you.

Inside is a HUGE list of curriculum and a curriculum planner!

#1 Heart of Dakota
This is an all-in-one literature based curriculum. We are using Preparing Hearts for His Glory and Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory this year. (We use it for the history portion and poetry) It has been a lot of fun!
**This is a project we did in Preparing Hearts for His Glory.
Elemental Science: Sassafras Science Adventures
This is a living book science curriculum for grades K-5th. My kids love the stories and filling out their logbooks. Plus this is a really affordable curriculum too!
#3 LLATL: Learning Language Arts Through Literature
LLATL goes from 1st grade through High School. It is an all-in-one language arts program which I love! No buying a separate curriculum, for writing, reading, poetry, grammar, and etc. It covers all the areas of LA! That is what drew me to it on the first place. So far it has lived up to my expectations.
#4 Life of Fred
This is a fun Math program in a story format. We do not use this as our core curriculum, but my sister does and she loves it. We use it as a supplement.
#5 Learning to Spell Through Copywork
My daughter really enjoyed this one!
#6 Copywork for Girls and Copywork for Boys
These are also by Sandi Queen. They are for grades 4-12.
#7 Nature Anatomy: The Curious Parts and Pieces of the Natural World (Julia Rothman)
We use this one for Nature Study. It is a beautiful book.
