A New Curriculum!
Okay its been a while since I have blogged. I have to admit that I was and am always looking for a better curriculum for our home school. I love Charlotte Mason but it is hard to follow because it keeps you very busy reading a lot of hard literature .I also had a hard time getting it all done and feeling like I was fulfilling my obligation to what I felt the Lord called me to do in my home school. But, I love her style of Narration, Copy work, and Dictation. Yet, I am searching or was searching for a way to learn and for my kids to learn about Gods word. And somehow when we got side tracked (or on the right track )by reading a lot of Bible, I felt guilty spending to much time there because I needed to hit all the subjects for school. Well a friend, God Bless her, by the hand of God was brought to a curriculum called Heart of Wisdom by Robin Sampson. She gave me the book to borrow and I devoured a 600 page book in a week. Praise God! It was exactly what I was looking for. A curriculum not just sprinkled with Gods word but immersed in it. It also uses Charlotte Masons methods of teaching and all the learning styles! So, I bought the first book which was $15 and a e-text so I could down load it immediately. Our first week was great! The kids loved it, I loved it and most important I am positive it made the Lord smile. So, I am on the wrong computer but I will put the kids work in here in the next few days. I am very excited about this.
