Enrichment Homeschool Resources
At My Homeschool we wanted to make sure your child didn’t miss out of the generous feast a Charlotte Mason education has to offer.
And because we are homeschooling parents ourselves we also know when homeschooling multiple children it’s best to combine lessons when possible. That’s why we made our enrichment courses available to all our grades. You get to pick and choose what and how you’ll teach these topics and you can enjoy the family learning experience.
These courses are not sold separately and are exclusive to our My Homeschool learning community.
Pick a rotation for your whole family and work through it once a week. To enhance your child’s experience you can also play music at other times in the background. We’ve given you a few links for that as well.
- Our first rotation is all about learning to listen to music. It will help train the beginner’s ear to hearing the nuances of classical music. It’s a great introduction for the parent and student. We have two resources, both include weekly lessons for 32 weeks.
- Our second rotation features eight composers. We’ve included radio shows, video clips and some biographies. This rotation could be done as a group or older primary students could do this independently.
- Our third rotation has famous ballet stories and opera highlights for you to watch. And don’t think these are all posh and hard for kids to appreciate because we’ve got some Disney and Muppet interpretations they’re going to love!
Our senior studies rotation is not part of our group study it is set up for independent study. It includes a number of musical genres including classical, opera and modern musical scores.
