Scope-and-Sequence for Charlotte Mason-Inspired Homeschooling

I’ve heard that Charlotte Mason never kept an official Scope-and-Sequence in her school or for her home study programs.   She encouraged teachers to come up with their own schedule of study each year to keep the topic fresh for the teacher as well as the student.

But I find that many modern day Charlotte Mason homeschoolers want some guidance about what to study and when.

Numerous people I’ve talked with over the years have found the Core Knowledge books to be a wonderful outline of what to study when.  These teachers/parents use the Core Knowledge books as their scope-and-sequence, and then flesh out the various topics with living books and use other Charlotte Mason techniques like narration, short lessons and nature study to bring the curriculum alive.
