Queen Homeschool Supplies- Charlotte Mason Style Education
Last year I started seriously looking for homeschool curriculum. I really thought I would choose something similar to what I used when I taught Kindergarten. But the one thing I forgot was that I wasn't teaching a class of 25, but my own child who has individual learning needs. For once, I could choose what I wanted to teach. That proved to be more of a difficult task than I imagined.
Now, I understand that every homeschool family has different reasons for picking what they are using for their children. That's the beauty of it. There are many great resources out there and I just wanted to choose what was best to work with my children.
About a year ago, one of the blogs I follow on Facebook posted a picture of a math book and history book with a picture of her kids on the back. I read what she wrote about the curriculum and thought I would check it out.
It was Queen Homeschool which follows the Charlotte Mason method. I had heard of Charlotte Mason and actually thought there was not enough to it according to the standards in my mind. But I began to research and think about how, why and what I wanted to teach my kids. I realized that I do want to teach them from real life. Charlotte Mason focuses on a living education.
I decided to order a few things for my son for PreK last year: Language Lessons for Little Ones Volume 1 and Picture My Numbers. I joined the Facebook group and loved all the great reviews people posted there.
As I have been looking at several different curriculums that past year, I kept coming back to Queen Homeschool. Why? It's a family business. The people are honest and trustworthy. They seek to produce material that is user friendly, covers a variety of topics and is fun for learning. There are several categories of subjects. I particularly like the Language Series and the Math Series.
Stay tuned for more reviews from what I am currently using.
