Home Education

This is where to find the books I’ve used in different Ambleside Online years, the adaptions I made and specific book resources I’ve put together. I’ve used AO with my four youngest children and sometimes I’ve used different books with different children so there may be more than one post for some years. By Year 12 my children who were university bound were doing the SAT I exams, Open University subjects, part-time work, as well as books I assigned so I haven’t recorded most of that here as it was more personalised.

Scroll down for posts on some specific Charlotte Mason practices that we’ve used or use the search function on the right.

Sign up for my newsletter that I send out from time to time if you would like encouragement and practical help in putting Charlotte Mason’s educational ideas into practice.
