We heavily emphasize that teaching phonics is a key element of a classical education, to make sure people don’t accidentally forget to add a phonics course to Grammar of Grace (or accidentally choose a sight words method)! But since there are so many fine phonics curriculums out there, we figured it wasn’t necessary to reinvent the wheel; so, no, we don’t offer one as part of GOG. I teach my children to read with Alpha-Phonics, but I have heard wonderful things about several phonics methods.
I’m considering adding [a popular Christian curriculum’s ancient history course] Creation to the Greeks to my cycle 1 plan [in Grammar of Grace]. Are you familiar with [that] curriculum? I feel like it could correspond very nicely and their plan would basically cover a lot of my read alouds. Just curious what you know about them and if you had an opinion?
I am intrigued! I’ve been homeschooling off and on for 30 years. Lately I’ve been educating myself in Charlotte Mason. In prior years my kids had overwhelming special needs. My current 2 maybe 3 homeschoolers are 7 (math gifted) 13 & 14 (both have learning disabilities).
I’ve got everything already set up for next year for full on Charlotte Mason. Would this be compatible? Also which components do I need to purchase from your site?
And where would I place 14 yr old who is at approx 6/7th grade level and somewhat grouse and unmotivated? Also 13 who is at 3rd grade level maybe 4th and socially immature.
What other outside resources would I need?…
