  1. Charlotte Mason Original Homeschooling Series Review by AnaMaree
    Pros: Great reading book choices
    Cons: Seemed old fashioned at first, surprised how much I like the ideas!

    Grades Used: Pre-K/K

    I am very new to the homeschooling idea and this is one of the first sites I found. Trying to find the right fit for us and using lots of printables. Reading is huge in our house. I found Charlotte Mason’s books online and started reading those. The first thing I did was order a set of books recommended by her and my 4 year old LOVES them! This led to us finding some old school books, McGuffy Reader and Ray’s Arithmetic which she also loves. Thank you to thehomeschoolmom.com for providing so much information on different ways and styles to follow and for making it simple, much easier than I ever dreamed it would be!

  2. Charlotte Mason Original Homeschooling Series Review by Robin Wheatley
    Pros: Huge amounts of information!
    Cons: Huge amounts of information!

    Grades Used: 1-2

    Yes, the pros and cons are actually the same. I received this set for Christmas, and have gotten through four of the six books. I had read some other information about Charlotte Mason’s methods before I started these books, but I have found that the more I read of the original works, the more the method is “clicking” in my head. It has been difficult for me to follow her ideas before really understanding the reasons behind them. These books are giving me that understanding. They include her philosophies of education and child training, and even examples of what to teach, when, and actual samples of her students’ work. I have found myself returning to volumes I have already read as I go through the other ones. It seems that you really have to read all of them to get the whole picture. One of the other cons, I guess, is that the books were written many years ago in England, so the language can be a little bit hard to understand at times. However, it is still English, just a little older than what we use today. I would highly recommend reading these books if you are interested in following Charlotte Mason’s methods.
