Our School Plans

My two oldest are in fifth grade this year, and then I have two students in Form I: my second grade daughter and my first grade son.

I've compiled our learning plans for the past few years in case they're helpful to others using a Charlotte Mason-style of learning with elementary kids, especially those tweaking AmblesideOnline for their Catholic families.

I have this year's current plans at the top, and then the archive of previous years' plans organized below that.

  1. Hi Celeste! Our kids are almost the same age as your Cate and Xavier I think (dd9 and ds7 going into years 3 and 1)...I would love to see how you are combining them this year! Your blog is so helpful. Thank you!

    1. Hi Samara! Eventually I hope to get some of my plans for this year up, but it won't be just yet. :) The short answer is that I have them both combined for most of the Year 3 readings, except Xavier is doing history (Our Island Story, Children's History of the World, and The Little Duke) on his own, as is Cate (OIS, CHOW/TCOO, biography, and Children of the New Forest). I did some shifting around here and there, but it's going very smoothly so far. If you remind me via Instagram, I can take a quick snap of my over-arching book breakdown for them and send it to you. ;)

  2. Thanks! I will IG you. but no worries! I mean, new baby and all!!!! :D

  3. Promoting those school plans is truly exciting. There will be a lot of people who will going to like this and there would also be a lot of teachers who can appreciate this because it seems really great.
