I haven’t posted about this in a while, but many of our ideas about homeschooling come from Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn who wrote "Teaching the Trivium" and have the website www.TriviumPursuit.com. Their article "Ten Things To Do Before Age Ten" is excellent. Please read it here if you haven’t seen it before. I have put up this list in my kitchen so that I can constantly check myself to see if I’m remaining on the right track with teaching and training my children.
A question was posed to the Bluedorn’s recently about reading certain classical literature for young children. I think their answer is great. Read it here.
