    I am an Orthodox husband and father of thrrr. We have chosen to homeschool using the charlotte mason method. Is this the method you are using? I don’t imagine there are many orthodox families using CM. Any advice on how to customize it for an orthodox approach would be helpful. My four yo and my six yo are both doing year 0 and the new cub scouts program for kindergarten age boys. The older is delayed in language development so they are at the same level. My third child is just an infant.

      Hi Ryan, thanks for your comment! We do use the Charlotte Mason method, specifically Ambleside Online, which I have found tremendously helpful. It actually seems to be very common among Orthodox homeschoolers, and I think it’s a great fit, considering CM’s emphasis on educating the child holistically, as a full person; character formation; focusing on physical, experiential learning; and the acknowledging the child’s need for beauty. Are you on Facebook? I’m an admin for a Facebook group called Charlotte Mason Eastern Orthodox Homeschoolers, and you can find some great resources there. I hope to blog more about how to implement this here eventually, but it’s hard to do when I’m actually homeschooling! Please feel free to shoot me any questions.
