The Prairie Primer really does give you a lot to think about as you go through the Little House books! Sometimes I'm not even exactly sure why it suggests studying something, like when they recommend studying breathing when you are in chapter four. The only connection to breathing that I could find in chapter four was when it said, "Pa's breath hung in the air like smoke" :) But, whatever the reason, I have been wanting to teach the children about their body systems anyway, so we started here, with the respiratory system. (To see what else we learned about while reading through Little House in the Big Woods, you can see my previous post here.)
As a homeschooler, I have heard the name of Charlotte Mason all over the homeschool world. I have been curious about what the Charlotte Mason method is and have done a little research. What I found out looked interesting, so when I had a chance to review one of Kimberly Garcia's books from the Write From History curriculum, a Charlotte Mason writing program, I decided that this was a good chance to learn a little more about Charlotte Mason and how the Charlotte Mason method would work in our homeschool.
Earlier this month I told you that we are reading through the Little House series in our homeschool. We have now finished reading Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. While I read, the kids worked on our Little House lapbook binder. As I show you what we did, I will link to where you can find the same printables that we used. Just click on the purple words and it will take you to my Pinterest pins.
We started a project that I have been looking forward to for years! We are reading through the Little House on the Prairie series in our homeschool!
