Re: Pagan homeschooling?

I wish I could set my land up like Earth Mother School... we have plenty of it, but I am learning this whole country living thing as I go and I'm not so great at it most of the time lol.

I wish Global Village School would have their booklists availabe without you haning to buy the guide... I think I could take their lost and run like the wind with it on my own.

I figured I would tell you what I use for us.. we love McRuffy for marh.. its very hands on and fun. My kids love it, then we move into Teaching Textbooks. For phonica one used Explode the Code, one is using Hooked on Phonics and I will probably combine those two for my littlest guy when he asks to start learning. For other language arts we use simple Total Reading workooks and Zaner Bloser spelling which you can get for free. About 4th grade I start Writing Strands and middle school Lightning Literature and Analytical Grammar come into play.

Science and social studies come from the Core knowledge foundations sequence with lots love living life thrown in.

sorry not fixing the millions of typos.... on my tablet and it thinks it knows everything lol

Subbing... I like the looks of that global village school as well, just buying the curriclum is a pretty affordable option!

We would LOVE to live in Portland but Oregon heavily taxes companies so there's no jobs there. We're laid off currently, so we've looked. Also, it cost an arm and a leg in tuition. Definitely what I was looking for though!

I ran into some reviews or well, discussions for Global Village on secularhomeschool.com's forum.

It seems to me to be not much more than an expensive book list from what I read there.

:iagree: grading GVS. I wish the would have better samples to prove me wrong.

What is your educational focus? We're pagan, but right now we're about the 3 basic r's. I love Waldorf but the monkeys weren't having it. They prefer workbook and more structured/ almost textbook learning. So for pagan/ character stuff, I wait til Saturday or Sunday.

Re: Pagan homeschooling?

Have you found any more resources? I am looking into homeschooling next year, and would love for it to be pagan/earthbased also.

Not really. Just one book on Amazon but I haven't bought it yet. We're staying with family between moves and my DD is only 12 mos so put the research on hold for a bit.

There's a couple books on Amazon that looked interesting. Here's one: Pagan Homeschooling http://amzn.com/1892718421
