I am reading with interest all of these detailed posts on your current school year. We use Ambleside as well, and I love seeing how others ilement it in their homes. This is the first year my oldest child is doing the readings independently. I think I may try a similar way to organize the readings. Thanks for sharing! Hi Gabrielle, thanks for reading!
What Poetry Looks Like
I got the idea for the checklists from Kathy Livingston, and modified it to fit what we do. This method has worked really well for us so far, because it helps me to remember to check off each narration as I hear it. I bought The Cross in the West because we don't own it yet. It sounds like one my kids will like, especially after their reading last year.

I own BFSU also and haven't used it yet. I think most of the topics there eventually get taught via AO and life, and in a more organic way.
But I am not totally giving up the idea of using it together in the future. I definitely think your kids will enjoy The Cross in the West.
There's some amazing people in there that they probably have never heard of, which is fun. I certainly hadn't heard of most of them! Before I start planning our new year, I like to spend some time reviewing this past school year, the materials we used, and the changes we made.
Charlotte Mason education, modernized
As I've mentioned before, I used Ambleside Online as my guide for planning the school year. I'd like to share not only what I planned, but also what I ended up actually doing. I think one of the greatest shortcomings in homeschooling blogs is that we're great at sharing all the wonderful things that we want to do and plan to do, but not so great at following up and sharing what actually worked, what we bailed on halfway through, or what sounded like a great idea but never really got off the ground.

I also don't want to be duplicate or encroach on all the excellent work that Ambleside Online has done over the years. Their dedication and service to the Charlotte Mason community is astounding, and such an enormous gift.
