Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Thanks! We are so excited about starting Tapestry. We'll probably start it next fall which will be first grade. I think it will be so much fun and a great learning experience for all of us. Is it overkill..........totally, but I just can't help it! However, I think we'll love the books, projects, and lapbooks so we're going for it.
Do you have a post on your blog with a reading list of books you all have read? I've been working on a reading list for us.
And where do you get your audio books? My children are starting to enjoy audio books and they like Jim Weiss. I'd love to find good recordings of some of the books we've read so they can listen over and over and over again!

Great look! Really looks nice. I started reading before I knew it, and found things I'd probably been missing!
I'm hesitating on buying phonics museum. we have phonics pathways, and even ordinary parents guide to reading... but is the added subject matter (history/Bible) that much more interesting. My $resources are not endless, but I know I'll use it at a later date if I don't get every ounce of use with my oldest child.
I think the primers really look interesting, as well as all of the added opportunities to enhance history connections. Any thoughts?

Laura,
Phonics Museum is a lovely program with beautiful primers. Is it necessary? No. We loved the alphabet song, the flashcards, and the primers. We used it for Kindergarten, not first grade.

If you're on a tight budget, skip it. Otherwise, it is a fun way to "do" kindergarten. We'll be using it this year for Toby.
