  1. I think I follow mostly a Charlotte Mason like approach at this point. Perhaps not always, but for these younger years I like it.

  2. We are pretty eclectic. I am taking advantage of these early years to get a great feel for how my girls learn best. We love the choices we have made for phonics (All About Reading) and math (Math U See) and we will be introducing spelling this year as well (All About Spelling). I have Apologia for science and plan on keeping it pretty light, science we can always revisit and we attend a coop for science too. I read to them a lot. As much as possible. We are also using Five in a Row because I LOVE books and love to share that with my girls. It is like doing unit studies but I also keep it really simple.

    • It sounds like you have a great set up! We just switched to All About Reading/Spelling ourselves, and I can’t wait! I think I am going to LOVE it. I actually debated about both Apologia and Math U See, but ended up staying with Singapore Math and choosing Elemental Science (new for us this year). I love that we can tailor our teaching around how our kids learn!

      • I agree that tailoring our kiddos education is the best!!! I am pretty traditional in the way I learn and my youngest appears to be as well, for now, but my oldest needs to use her hands and see color. She appears to be mostly visual and kinesthetic. But her auditory side comes out strong during read aloud time. She loves books (and I LOVE that!!). The child can give me a summary of 8 chapters and completely blow me away. That encourages me since I have taken my time with her, going very slow in pushing her to read. She is very strong willed and it can get pretty exhausting to have a battle over everything. LOL!
        I’m looking forward to keeping up with your school year and seeing how everything goes. I’ll have to let you know how our math and science come along too.

        • I love how you are finding her learning strengths and maximizing those opportunities. She sounds a lot like Princess Super Kitty…:)

          Yes, let’s share our homeschooling experience!

  3. We’ve done online school the past two years and now jumping into traditional homeschooling. We will be tackling 1st grade, 4th, and 6th. Since this is all new to us, I don’t have a specific style of teaching at this point. My focus for me and the kiddos is to relax, enjoy and learn.

  4. So far, I have only JK under my belt with my 5 year old, and I mostly did unit studies. I have some curriculum this year, so SK will likely be a combo of school-at-home and unit studies for me, since I also have a 2.5 year old at home as well!

    • Sounds like a lot of fun! I love themes and unit studies. It is such a great way to really dig into a topi, and it’s easily adaptable for small hands. 🙂

  5. I am not sure my style yet just starting to homeschool this year

    • Don’t worry about it. Once you get going, you’ll find what works and what doesn’t for you and your students. 🙂 Happy first year!

  6. I think my style is eclectic. I take ideas from different methods and use them.

    • I am largely an eclectic teacher myself. I advocate to use whatever method works for you and your student. I also have classical leanings as I want my students to be prepared for college where they are still primarily lecture-based.
