Schedules

Here are some sample schedules from our members, from different years.  We use differing styles of learning, from completely Charlotte Mason, to some Charlotte Mason incorporated into a Well Trained Mind or Latin Centered Classical Curriculum.  
All the methods mesh very weel, and are not exclusive to each other. Charlotte's methods are often found to be best when incorporated into other methods, but of course, it varies from family to family and from teacher to teacher.
