If your are interested in more information, I use Ambleside Online year 0 and we follow the Charlotte Mason philosophy.
|Some of our learning looks fairly traditional. Note the look of concentration as he does copywork.|
|Biggie got to the letter "d" and wrote it the way you would write a half note - he didn't do the downstroke to the bottom of the line. I pointed that out and he answered, "Oh I never do that part. It's just a spot of bother."|
|Some of it is disguised as play. (See the letters made out of legos?)|
|Some looks like "work". (Trying out parsnips for the first time in our soup!)|

|And we do lots and lots of reading. And apparently, playing with string. :)|
We are working through the Singapore Math level A book and we both like it very much. We supplement with sorting buttons, working with an abacus, and various other math games.
For piano, I used to teach beginning piano, so I am just doing little 10 minute sessions with him using the Jane Smisor Bastien "Very Young Pianist" series, which I really, really love. It uses wonderful illustrations, teaches the basics of music and it is simple and not cluttered with overly flashy cartoony stuff.
Science and Art and such very much follow our interests and whims... painting with watercolors, practicing with scissors, bird watching, etc... As the weather warms up, we will be spending more time outside doing nature study.
And in between all of this, you will find me running laundry to the washing machine, folding it, working on a grocery list while the boys paint, etc... Work, play, and school are all woven together into a rich and vibrant life. It is a lifestyle that we feel blessed to live.
