AmblesideOnline: Year 4

"We wish to place before the child open doors to many avenues of instruction and delight, in each one of which he should find quickening thoughts. "

Charlotte Mason, Volume 3, p. 170

For the first time this year, students plunge into studies of Plutarch's Lives as well as three Shakespearean plays. They will continue with daily copywork, adding in studied dictation and grammar study this year. This is the year students begin keeping a Book of Centuries, in addition to the timeline. Every scheduled reading will still be narrated, most orally as in past years. Written narration, begun weekly now, will replace some oral narration and serve as further preparation for composition. Foreign language study continues as begun in previous years, and this year the study of Latin should be added.
