We are finishing up the first term of Year 3 with Ambleside. As I mentioned before, we have struggled this term. I have been revising our schedule for next term with the knowledge I have gained from our stumblings.
One of the major advantages in planning this term is knowing the books and the length and difficulty of the readings. As a student grows within the Charlotte Mason philosophy, they are expected to slowly take on more of the responsibility of learning themselves.
To that end, I get to divvy up. We will have two books that I read to Froggy and she narrates back. We have two books I will read to her and we will also have activities that accompany the material. As usual, we will have one book we will be listening to in the car. And then we have two books that Froggy will read. One she will read aloud to me and the other (our biography), she will read to herself and narrate.
