How I Teach Multiple Ages Using the Charlotte Mason Method
Have you ever wondered how to teach multiple ages? Or how to do it using the Charlotte Mason method?
When I first discovered the Charlotte Mason method, I was excited to realize I could teach both daughters, then ages 6 and 10, the same materials at the same time. What a time saver! Even better than saving time, it gave us educational family time. I treasure that the most.
To include this family study time, I divided our our study time into two parts.
Individual studies: Those subjects which much be taught individually due to age and ability. (e.g. science, math, typing, reading)
Beginning today, I'll be sharing with you how I teach both girls at the same time. Now that Lorelai is almost 11 and Alexis is 15, we do things a little differently. (Think 5th grade and 10th grade.) Alexis has a lot more to do than Lorelai these days giving her a longer school day. Still, it works.
