Cottage School Blog was created by a 23 year veteran homeschool mom, and mother to 12 children. I am sharing here what I have found to be some of the best curricula, websites, homeschool blogs, ideas, methods, etc., in hopes to benefit and encourage you as you journey through the world of training and educating your children.

My Father's World
Easy to teach
Hands on activities Multi-age Unit Studies Less Preparation
International Focus Character Development Strong Academics Integrated Biblical Content
Recognizes the Bible, God's truth, to be the foundation of wisdom and education.
Utilizes hands-on, unit studies with daily lesson plans that are easy-to-teach.
Enables families and multi-age groups to learn together. Many of our programs may be taught to a range of ages simultaneously.
Combines the best of Charlotte Mason's ideas and classical education with a Biblical worldview, an international focus and our own observations of how children learn.
Uses a comprehensive, sequenced learning program beginning with preschool learning toys to develop readiness skills. Our complete unit-based curriculum includes a phonics-based learning-to-read program and focuses on God's amazing creation (kindergarten), the world of the Bible (first grade), and U.S. history (second or third grade). Then a year of geography sets the foundation for four years of chronological world and U.S. history (through eighth grade). Our high school curriculum provides a Biblical framework for English, history, and other subjects.
Provides easy-to-teach, integrated curriculum that is enjoyable, academically strong, and focused on character development.
Is committed to the Lord of All, who tenderly searches for people from every tribe and language. A portion of our profits helps support mission work overseas, especially Bible translation projects.Our heart's desire is that someday soon all people would be able to read of God's love in their own language.
Our family used this for about 3 years. It took about 2 years to do 3 levels since I try to home school year round. If you are looking for something to do with all your children who are relatively close in age then this is a great choice. My children loved it. You can read more about My Father's World HERE.
