Last year I started using Primary Language Lessons with my son. Primary Language Lessons is a Charlotte Mason style English book. It is truly a joy to use, true to Charlotte Mason style. The lessons are short but effective, conversational in style, and thorough in content.
From the back cover:
Imaginative lessons and short, jargon free instructions for teachers make it a pleasure for both student and teacher.
This book is one of many (what I call) "little old books" that I have on my homeschooling shelf. I love its simplicity. Each lesson is short, but gets the job done.
