Reading over myplans for last term, I see only a need to tweak a little for Term 3. I'm also pondering a slight return to our block days, or maybe we could make them block weeks? I remember we were able to studymaths for example more in depth this way. (This for my primary aged children, the teens work independently.) I'm pondering how to 'marry' Natural Learning with Charlotte Mason. Ensuring the children have a solid grasp of the basics and yet have a thirst for knowledge. Striving for Weekly Meetings with 4 oldest.
