Why Reinvent the Wheel?
October 16, 2012
I've implemented parts of Charlotte Mason, and a lot of Classical education in my home. Lifepacs are a breath of fresh air. Listen Moms: Simplify your life! Why are we letting the ideal be the enemy of the adequate? Lifepacs are so easy to use. Open, read, take tests, assign a few of the projects. That's it. The project ideas are good.
If all your child was exposed to in life was Lifepacs, then perhaps their history education would be a little lacking. But if they are reading historical fiction, non-fiction, and watching documentaries these are really more than adequate.
Also, if you just hand your children the Lifepacs leave, then they will do OK and retain some. But if you discuss the information with your child, and read some of it with them, and assign the projects, they will retain much more and it'll be more interesting. Of course, the beauty of Lifepacs is that if you have a very busy day, the children can learn on their own. When you are less busy, you can involve yourself.
