School starts up again in a few weeks, and since we are committed to another year of homeschooling, it is always a bit of a busy time getting prepared. This year we are doing Grade 3. We’ve done a little bit of learning about Canada the last few years, but this year we are going to try to dive in a little bit deeper. And since I am a bit of a recent fan of Charlotte Mason, we will be doing it in a Charlotte-Mason-inspired format.
Want to join me?
Here is a very basic schedule for our first twelve weeks (which may be edited from time to time):
These books are not all written by Canadians, but they contain relevant information.
Indian Hero Tales, by Gilbert Wilson
Two Little Savages, by Ernest Thompson Seton
North American Wildlife:
We will also be considering some Canadian poetry and art.
Poet: Archibald Lampman
Along with this we will be listening to On the Shores of the Great Sea, by M.B. Synge.
None of this has been tried and tested yet… but we will blog infrequently about how it is going. If you decide to do it too, follow me so you don’t miss Term 2 and 3.
