Mater Amabilis™ Level 1A

Elementary/Primary Level (approx. ages 7 to 9)

Grades 2 & 3 in the US.  Year 3 & 4 in the UK.

This course covers two school years.

The curriculum is designed to fit into thirty-six weeks, with many subjects broken down into three blocks of twelve weeks (terms).

The approximate number of lessons required each week for each subject is shown in italics on the syllabus. Often the lessons can be covered in ten or eleven weeks, allowing a little leeway in the schedule.

Each term one classic children's book and the recommended additional history book should be read aloud outside formal lesson time.

At this level most lessons should last around 20 minutes. 

Before beginning you may want to read the General Introduction to Charlotte Mason's method, and the subject introductions for language artsgeography and nature study.
